Is "Alex from Target" the new Justin Bieber or Nash Grier?

For reasons which we may never fully understand, the Internet has turned a photo of a boy working at Target into an international meme virtually overnight.

Twitter user @auscalum posted the photo on Sunday, which began trending on Twitter, has already been parodied in various Vines and images, and is even being featured on mainstream media outlets like CNN.

The real Alex now has 300k followers on Twitter as of Monday morning. Because of course he does.

Let's call this one #Urinegate, shall we?

In an on-air segment Saturday, night, NBC meteorologist Mike Seidel was in North Carolina reporting on the snow, but the cameras cut to him a bit too early.

Viewers and NBC anchor Lester Holt were both surprised to see Seidel with his back to the camera, before apparently zipping up his fly.

NBC is claiming that he was just looking for his dropped phone.

Well after weeks of speculation, the mystery seems to have finally been solved: Kim Jong Un has been spotted. Alive!

And now here he is in a recent photo spread, back at work, touring a creepy orphanage, devoid of any children.

New images of the Great Leader, released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), show him at the Pyongyang Baby Home and Orphanage wandering around inflatable swans while looking confused and happily inspecting a Hello Kitty tea sets, pink bunk beds and ball pits.

Looks like everything is back to normal in North Korea. Now if we can just find those missing children...

Answer: Taking the social media world by storm… that's what!

Here are a few examples, but be sure check out his official account:

24-year old Riley Swearingen thought nothing about his drunken joke on a police officer.

According to the criminal complaint, Mankato Department of Public Safety Police Sergeant Adam Gray was talking with a driver of a "drunk bus" in the city's entertainment district when he "felt two fingertips that were obvious to him as wet with saliva being pushed into his right and left ear canals, which caused pressure and discomfort in his ear canals."

The officer turned and saw a man later identified as Swearingen tell his friends, "I just gave the cop a wet Willie."

"Sergeant Gray immediately proceeded after the male who assaulted him," the complaint continues.

Once he was apprehended, Swearingen told Gray he was just joking around and was sorry, but Gray arrested him anyway.

WTF of the Day: A Former Member of Scientology is Ambushed and Harassed by Three Current Top Scientology Officials in LAX Airport

The man being berated is Marty Rathbun, who spent two and a half decades in the church, rising to become a top official there before breaking away in 2004. On his blog, Rathbun writes that the people berating him in the video are three of the current top management personnel named Jenny Linson, Marc Yager, and Dave Bloomberg.

On Sunday evening, Rathbun posted this bizarre 2-minute video, a video he had taken earlier in the day while he was waiting at Los Angeles International Airport to catch a flight back to his home in Texas. Rathbun thinks the entire thing was a set up because Rathbun points out "there was only one carry-on bag for the three of them." The way they spoke was also very calculated and seems pretty clear it was well rehearsed.
