Gotta Watch: The top Jeanne Moos videos of 2011

Jeanne Moos’ quirky view of the world around her has earned her a place in the hearts of viewers. Her videos are often among the most-viewed videos each day. (In case you missed yesterday’s top-ranked piece  showing delivery guys manhandling fragile packages, you can find it at the bottom of this post.) We’ve assembled the most popular pieces of the year, as well as some of Jeanne’s favorites. Plus, find out what she thinks of her picks.

Flour power — One of Jeanne’s favorite pieces of the year was a video of two toddlers covering every inch of a room in flour. The mess brought the mom to tears. “I don’t have kids, and this is a great excuse for why not,” Jeanne says. See why.

Butt out — Another one of Jeanne’s favorites was video of two Iranian soccer players who were fined for a congratulatory pat on the behind. Iranian officials deemed it “immoral.” Jeanne says she loves this piece “because I’ve always enjoyed watching macho guys pat each other on the butt.” Check out some other famous butt pats, too.

The death stare — After the world found out that Osama bin Laden died in a raid by the United States' SEAL Team Six, the White House released a now-famous photo of Barack Obama and his team watching the raid live. It offered an inside look at a story that readers clamored to learn more about. Jeanne takes a closer look at the picture. This was one of the most popular videos among viewers.

COPulation — Another viewer favorite was this piece about a uniformed cop caught having sex on the hood of a car. Take another look at the photos — and the furry witness.

Deliveries gone wild — This might just be the worst delivery ever. A FedEx worker throws a computer monitor over a fence. If you’re convinced that this happens to your packages, here’s the horrifying proof.

To watch this year's most popular Jeanne Moos videos as well as some of Jeanne's favorites, download the CNN app for iPad or Android-powered tablets and visit the "Featured" section. You can find more of her videos on her reporter page.

    One more example of incompetent, uncaring behavior by people who do not value their own employment or the property of others that it is their job to deliver undamaged. There are people lined up all over this country that would deeply appreciate a job and would take their responsibilities seriously. I hope this guy is fired and cannot collect unemployment.

      One of those people probably have his job now thanks to the internet.

    Don't pick on Fed-Ex and UPS alone (I've gotten UPs packages that were torn open, with things missing, and boxes that looked as though they'd been dragged behind the truck). I have seen USPS employees throwing packages across the room at the post office. It's a general lack of respect for others, and rampant laziness - both of which permeate our society.

    As for the Iranian grope...that was more than a pat or squeeze. The guy was aiming for a specific spot, if you know what I mean. Makes you wonder what goes on in the locker room among those very pretty men.

    I saw the FedEx video on the news yesterday morning; it was released as one of You Tube's top ten most watched videos of the year.

    Package handlers, no matter what company, do this.

    All of them.

    You should see how they unload them at the distribution centers and what happens to them before they're even put on the delivery truck...unreal.

    First video with the toddlers.... so she left a 3 1/2 yr old and a 1 1/2 yr old at home alone when she went to the grocery store? Anyone else see something wrong with this? It's funny to CNN I guess. How come no one else has picked up on this? I would never leave my child at home alone when he was that old.

      She didn't leave them home alone. She didn't lock the cabinets before she went to the bathroom. Are you saying you would never go to the bathroom with children in the house?

      OK. I sure as hell wouldn't go to the bathroom for as long as it took for those kids to spread that across the ENTIRE HOUSE! All the hallways, the furniture and all the rooms they showed..... You saying they did that in 10 minutes? You're out of your mind if you think that. Like I said, I have kids. I know they can be destructive, but there is no way those kids could have accidentally spread that with their hand prints over the whole home) in just a couple minutes.

    We dont need the damm postal service any more! These people in the postal service are dam smart , theres plenty of jobs in the IT industry for all of them to get jobs there or the computer market somewhere. The usps has been out dated for 20 years now , havnt they had a good run. Yes so lets turn it all over to a new idea that will save everybody tons of money

    Part of the problem with fedex/UPS delivery is that these workers are pressured to move rapidly to attain a minimum output & it affects their pay. I would like to hear from some FEDEX/UPS workers to give us detailed info on this; only the truth & to offer advice on how to alleviate or eliminate the problem. Excellent American workers r the best source of solutions in the world.
