By now, you’ve
probably seen Isaac Lamb’s masterfully choreographed routine/marriage proposal
to Amy Frankel. The Portland, Ore. couple reached cyber stardom with YouTube
video “Isaac’s Live Lip-Dub Proposal” — just one week after being posted, it's approaching 12 million views.
It is important to
note that despite various website mentions, this is decidedly
not “hipster” (except maybe the dancing Jews, that might be some kind of

this 9-year-old Scottish girl who became fed up with her inadequate school

and married a girl that did not

everyone’s pissed about all of it.
Did anyone else
nearly run their car off the road when they hear what sounds like Morgan
