Let These 5 Animals Brighten Your Blue Monday

We're nearly a week past New Year's Day, but there's another day of importance lurking just after the start of 2014: Blue Monday, or in this instance, January 6, deemed to be the most depressing day of the year as it marks the return to work after the holidays.

Researchers found that Tweets at this time of the month were more likely to express guilt about giving up their New Year's resolutions, while drinks company Upbeat found complaints about the weather were also likely to increase.

But despite the odds not being in our favor, we've found a surefire way to beat the dread that allegedly accompanies this day: Pets! And below, we share that strategy with you.

Kathy Griffin Threatens to Ring in the New Year Topless with Anderson Cooper

Originally posted 12/31/2013 01:55PM

Kathy Griffin has been needling Anderson Cooper on New Year's Eve for years now, and it sounds like they'll be ringing in 2014 for CNN much the same way – with one potential difference.

"@kathygriffin just sent me this photo of her outfit for New Year's Eve. She's kidding, right? Please tell me she is," the journalist amusingly Tweeted Monday.

The photo shows Griffin naked from the waist up, her hands gleefully thrown up in the air. (Don't worry – or get your hopes up: Her back's to the camera in the photos, so there's not much to see.)

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

UpdatePosted 12/10/2013 10:45AM

Wolf Blitzer: 'Ron Burgundy Tried to Poison Me'

Originally posted 12/10/2013 08:00AM

Let's face it, by mid-2014 (assuming Anchorman 2 does well enough), Ron Burgundy will likely be an actual news anchor, and this video will seem less funny in retrospect as Will Ferrell disappears from reality, subsumed by his most hirsute creation.

Until then, though, it's hilarious. Funny or Die gathered Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer and Chris Cuomo (all of whom apparently have history with Ron) to discuss Burgundy's journalistic abilities, integrity and lack thereof.

Hero Rescuer: 'I Got Some Girl and Her Kid'

Rescuer Charles Ramsey: 'I Got Some Girl and Her Kid'

Originally posted 05/08/2013 09:45AM

Charles Ramsey lived right next door to the Cleveland house where Ariel Castro allegedly kept three women captive for up to a decade, but all he saw day after day were two little girls he assumed were Castro's grandchildren playing in the backyard.

But as the world now knows, that changed this week when he rescued the kidnapped Amanda Berry.

As Ramsey told CNN's Anderson Cooper on AC360 Tuesday night that he "heard that girl scream and saw [a neighbor] run across the street, and I went outside and wondered what he was doing, and ... Amanda said, 'I'm stuck in here, help get me out.' "

Ramsey continued: "So here I come with my, you know, half-eaten Big Mac, and I looked and I said, 'Well, what's up?' And she's like, I've been trapped in here, he won't let me out, me and my baby. I said, 'Well, we ain't going to talk no more, come on."
