Children re-enact the MTV show "The Hills"

Here’s a quick glance at the collective consciousness of the Web on Wednesday:

The Hills, in miniature: If you ever thought the stars of MTV’s “The Hills” act pretty immature, you aren’t the only one. A video of children re-enacting the reality show has gone viral. In honor of the final season, the website Babelgum.com took child labor to a whole new level, with kids playing versions of Audrina, Heidi and Lauren. The girl who plays Heidi covers her face with a spooky clear mask, alluding to the numerous plastic surgeries the reality star has undergone. The pint-size Spencer, Heidi's husband, has an actual toddler fit, a shout-out to the grown-up's bratty tendencies.

Oil to be burned in Gulf: The U.S. Coast Guard prepared to set fire to an oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico to keep the spilled crude away from sensitive ecological areas in the Mississippi River Delta. Efforts to cap the well, which began leaking when the Deepwater Horizon rig blew up and sank last week, have been unsuccessful. The oil will be corralled by a specially designed boom before being set ablaze. The flames are expected to destroy between 50 to 90 percent of the section of oil, and winds should blow the cloud of smoke and soot out to sea.

Sandra Bullock files divorce papers

Sandra Bullock filed for divorce from Jesse James.

Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock filed for divorce from Jesse James in a Texas court, saying their marriage "has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities."

"My whole life has been full of hard decisions.

"The decision to let my wife end our marriage, and continue the adoption of Louis on her own, has been the hardest. The love I have for Louis cannot be put to words. Not having him around to love and to hold has left a huge hole in my heart."
