LONDON — It was a mostly snooze-worthy Brit Awards Wednesday night, until the last two minutes when Madonna fell dramatically, waking everyone back up from the humdrum event.

Falling backwards down a flight of stairs after a dancer pulled a cape that she hadn’t managed to untie, the material girl ended up on the ground, and the Internet started delivering.

The Big Bird, ‘Birdman’ parody that needed to happen



Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street? Or is it all in our heads? *dramatic experimental music*

North Korea’s latest list of 310 patriotic slogans ranges from the strange to the confusing

But here are the big takeaways – the country is big on fishing, farming and animal husbandry, “dependable” wives and military strength.
