Los Angeles is well known for the terrible highway traffic so if you're about to tell the people of that city that construction will cause MORE traffic jams, you better have a special way of doing it. Mayor Eric Garcetti's slow jam will soothe and charm you, even if your weekend plans have been ruined. 

He also has this amazing quote about slow jams and planned traffic delays:

Is this cool? Is it not cool? It should be on the level of your high school teacher "rapping" about chemistry but the smooth sounds of saxophone have me all confused.

This adorable sloth just wanted to cross the road but he ran into some trouble. He was found clinging to the median on the highway in Ecuador and rescued by traffic police.  They took a few pictures with him to document the situation, he seems very happy that someone is there to help. 



According to the Facebook page of Ecuador's transit commission he was taken to a veterinarian who gave him the OK to be returned to the wild.

This is not the way to promote world peace.

Some poor, poor guy over at Gawker had his life's dreams put on hold when the Pope came to town. And he is surely not alone.

With the Pope's parade into America came enormous traffic blockages that put the kibosh on iPhone 6S deliveries. As the writer says:

The monstrous traffic congestion caused by the arrival of Pope Francis is expected to be so bad that UPS and Apple are already warning customers against the worst: missing the promised Friday arrival date of our new aluminum and glass idols. I received this email yesterday, and renounced my faith in the Catholic Church:





We know the Pope spreads an anti-capitalism message, but shouldn't it be one that doesn't involve the delay of new technology? Think of the children!



Well, we need our iPhones. How else are we supposed to use those cute little emojis that Twitter created for your visit?



iPhone owners wept.

Riding a bicycle on a busy street can be terrifying even without some lunatic pushing you off your bike into traffic.

London Metropolitan Police released this harrowing video Aug. 25, in the search for the insane monster who chased a cyclist down after she totally politely asked him to watch out for her while he crossed the road.



The silvery-est lining of this dark, fuming cloud is that she wore he head camera to capture the whole thing so the dude can hopefully be caught.

In the meantime, watch out for those cyclists on the road. They are helping the environment, alleviating traffic and trying to improve themselves.

And on a broader note, let us never forget this sage advice from Bill and Ted.

Way to make a first impression America.
