Comments

    On the GIF awards page, what is that one with the animal being thrown down stairs?? Is it a live animal??

      It was actually a raccoon that was attacking the thrower's dog at the top of a stairwell.

    "The idiots in the above GIF"??

    The only idiot I see is the driver of the boat.

      Casually standing on a speedboat going that fast is pretty idiotic.
