While reporting on Holly, the 13 year-old North Virginia swimming cat, news anchor, Susan Bahorich couldn't keep her composure. She struggled through the report and finally gave in to laughter as she put her head down, unable to control her mirth.
Holly, outfitted in a kitty life vest, paddles around the pool as part of her exercise routine to lose about 8 pounds. Amazing that she enjoys the water! There have been several animals taking to water of late, including a rabbit featured this morning on GMA wearing a life vest as well and with the addition of a red scrunchy holding back the ears.

The announcers at the Entertainer’s Basketball Classic at Rucker Park will tell you that the modern day Harlem Shake was started by a man by the name of “Al B” (nickname Sisqo or Cisco).

This may be kinda controversial compared to our usual fare. At ICUC we love all forms of social media, but we're realistic: SoMe doesn't exits in a vacuum. This interesting series has analyzed some of the other "costs" associated with social media, this video is specific to Facebook. What do you think? Is their assessment fair?
