  4. You've linked to "delighted with his success" before. It is unforgettable.

    Some others that I like: "cow-scratcher", "moose in a house", "do you have any extra fish?", "Cows interact with a remote-controlled toy car", "bubble pancake", "bicycling kites", "cutting a deck of cards", "colliding apples" (I imagine them as planets), and "petals in the wind".
