Irene and Alice have been best friends for 94 years. They met in first grade and said something between them just "clicked" — the rest, as they say, is history.

The two besties first visited "The Steve Harvey Show" to share their secrets to lifelong happiness. In their most recent segment, Irene and Alice tackle some of today's most pressing topics, including twerking, Justin Bieber, and selfies. In short, they are the cutest.

Hopefully you enjoy their views as much as I did!

The Tale of Pierre the Pelican, Told in Tweets

In October 2013, the New Orleans Pelicans realized they had a problem.

Their mascot was terrifying.


Young Kid's First-Ever Basketball Game Goes Professional

One uncle decided to make his nephew's first basketball game a little special. Rather than filming his nephew score his first points and forgetting about the footage for years to come, he decided to turn the already-adorable video into something fun — a SportsCenter Top 10 play. It makes a cute moment even more memorable. Kudos to an awesome family!

Super Bowl Commercials Recap: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Yes, the Seattle Seahawks were crowned champions last night thanks to blow-out win against the Denver Broncos; but for all intents and purposes, the game was over well before the clock ran out. Due the fact the game lacked excitement for most people outside the pacific northwest, many turned their attention the next most interesting part of last night: the commercials. The average price that advertisers shelled out for a 30-second spot this year was a record-high $4 million dollars. Some of those advertisers got their money's worth, while others should have used the money on something else (a new ad agency maybe?).

After re-watching many of the commercials from last night's game, here is my list of the best and worst commercials:

Best Commercials of the Night

Budweiser "Puppy Love"/"A Hero's Welcome"

Budweiser was the biggest winner not named the Seahawks from last night. Their two commercials, entitled "Puppy Love" and "A Hero's Welcome," were the two most memorable and perhaps the most anticipated ads of entire night. Budweiser released the "Puppy Love" commercial online last week to almost unanimous positive reviews (unless you are a heartless robot who lacks emotion). Nearly everyone had either already seen the ad or had heard about it, yet the commercial still won the night. "A Hero's Welcome" (seen here) followed Lt. Chuck Nadd as he returned home from Army, and was given a ticker-tape parade complete with the famous Clydesdale horses. Moral of the story, to sell more beer, feature crying and puppies; works every time.

The day after the Super Bowl, we're expected to go to wake up as we normally would, get dressed, go to work, and spend the entire day there. Honestly? I'm not a fan. I don't want to spend the day I've celebrated the Super Bowl inside at work; in fact, I don't think we should have to go into work at all. I propose the day after the Super Bowl should be a national holiday. Here are three reasons why.

#1: The Super Bowl has become an American holiday in its own right.

We spend weeks leading up to the Super Bowl talking only about the upcoming game. There are blog posts and news articles and television programs. Most people watch the Super Bowl even if they don't follow football otherwise. That qualifies as a holiday, people, and therefore we should have the day after it off from work. After all, it's not a real holiday unless you get to stay in your pajamas all day.
