Yesterday, the NYSE halted trading, The Wall Street Journal went offline and United Airlines flights around the country were grounded, all within a matter of hours.

So go ahead, drop that report you’re pretending to finish up and minimize the email you’ve yet to figure out a response for, because you should definitely watch Carrey fall down for 4 continuous minutes.

‘I’m Gonna Include That in My Sexting’ – Watch Grandmas Try to Define Modern Slang
