Creepy Easter Bunny photos, 9-year-old Socrates and questionable Tiger Woods slogan
Editor's note: There's so much that's beautiful, funny, smart and informative on the Internet. Problem is, there's also a bunch of garbage. Here's the best of the web right now:
1. Many children are frightened when placed upon the lap of a larger-than-life bunny. Funny adults didn't see this one coming, but tiny tots are creeped out by gigantic Easter Bunnies. That is at least until they are old enough to be conditioned that it is totally normal to see a human-sized rabbit in a shopping mall.
2. Nine-year-old discusses the meaning of life and the universe. As NPR puts it, Socrates showed up in a suburban backyard in Washington. The video is from 2012, but it's gaining steam as a result of the aforementioned piece by Robert Krulwich. In the video, a 9-year-old boy plainly discusses the meaning of life, free will and alternate universes.
3. Nike creates highly questionable ad campaign around Tiger Woods. The golf world has its poster boy back, but is "winning takes care of everything" the best way to commemorate that a serial adulterer is once again ranked No. 1 in the world? ESPN's Stephen A. Smith thinks so. "I love what it represents, and I love what it stands for," Smith says.
4. Paula Deen sucks whipped cream off of Jay Leno's fingers. In gif form. Watch it and weep.
5. Baylor's Brittney Griner dunks three times in March Madness game. Yes, I am a Baylor grad. But — unless you're a Florida State fan — you too will enjoy this 1:25 highlight reel of 6-foot-8 Griner dunking on the competition. Sic 'em.
