A winter storm is coming to the Northeastern United States. As per usual, many of the headlines have been inflammatory and hyperbolized, but there’s no reason to panic. Just make sure your home is stocked with all the necessities, keep a tab or two open in your browser with your favorite weather sites and make a bowl of chili.
And remember, while you’re tucked away all warm and cozy, some other sap is slipping on an ice patch.
In order to remind everyone that winter can be funny, as opposed to terrifying and deadly, we’ve pulled together a small compilation of the best videos we could find featuring people falling in snow or slipping on ice. It might seem mean-spirited, but it’s only really funny because they got up after they fell. It’s more inspiring than anything.
Ok, inspiring might be the wrong word for it, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to stop watching these videos. Speaking of which, this might be the all-time classic. You’ve almost certainly seen it before, but if not, you’re in for a treat:
And because not all videos have to be quite so painful, here’s one of a dog sliding across a snow-covered lawn:
In closing, stay warm and enjoy some schadenfreude this weekend:
