Gotta Watch: What you missed this weekend

A lot of you were distracted over Memorial Day weekend by sun, fun and good food, so we thought we'd wrangle some of our favorite videos from the last few days to ease you back into the work week. From a cool lip-dub proposal to dreams of pole dancing at the Olympics, you've Gotta Watch them all.

Guy's 'lip dub' proposal goes viral

It was the ultimate public display of affection. A guy gets dozens of friends and family members together to lip-sync and dance to one heck of a marriage proposal. Did he do well? Watch the video and leave us your proposal stories below.

Pole dancing in the Olympics?

It may be the only Olympic event that could be done in heels, but the man who wants pole dancing in the Olympics says stilettos will have to stay home. Watch the video to hear his pitch and see the dancers in action.

Homemade arcade makes kid famous

You may remember the story of Caine's Arcade. The filmmaker recently told CNN that the whole thing started with the need for a new car door handle. Watch the video to find out why.

Dying grandma lives to see grandson born

A woman dying of cancer is days away from death, but somehow she held on to see the birth of a grandchild. Watch the video -- and grab a tissue -- to see Becky Moran meet the the baby for the first and only time.

Olivia Newton-John still gets 'Physical'

We all know Olivia Newton-John as the iconic singer and actress from "Grease" and "Xanadu," but there was a time when she had completely different career aspirations. Watch the video to find out what she could have become.

    Bernie was invited to his friend's home for dinner. Morris, the host, preceded every request to his wife by endearing terms, calling her Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart, Pumpkin, etc. Bernie looked at Morris and remarked, "That is really nice, that after all these years that you have been married, you keep calling your wife those pet names." Morris hung his head and whispered," To tell the truth, I forgot her name three years ago."

    An artist asked the gallery owner if there had been any interest in his paintings currently on display. "I've got good news and bad news," the owner replied. "The good news is that a gentleman inquired about your work and wondered if it would appreciate in value after your death. When I told him it would, he bought all fifteen of your paintings."

    "That's wonderful!" the artist exclaimed, "What's the bad news?". With concern, the gallery owner replied, "The guy was your doctor."

    @ Pete

    This Romney campaign is getting more hilarious by the minute. You know Trump has jumped in and got the birther thing going again. Romney says he does believe our president is a US citizen, but when asked by the media about Trumps claims, Romney refuses to dispute it. Looks like someone has got someone by the short butt hairs.

    You are on a roll my friend@ bobcat.
    To add to your comments on Romney, if you permit, did you hear him and that idiot McCain lambasting President Obama for nor arming the 'rebels' and military intervention in Syria?
    Imagine if this mind set comes to rule us.

      Romney is losing credibility each and everyday. Every time he opens his mouth, it's a contrdiction of what he said prior to that. What's even funnier is, he doesn't even have to say anything now. He's even being made a buffon by the clowns that are backing him. Just for his refusal to dispute what Trump is saying is speaking volumes for his chracter.

    @ saywhat

    If that mentality is allowed to permeate our white house and especially in combination of congress,this country can almost be assured of entering into another unwanted conflict. That thinking process now is even more dangerous since the news of outside forces being used in the attempt to over throw the government. I don't know where this all will end, but the recent scenario is not painting a pretty picture.

    Pole dancing is not a sport. As the name suggests-it's dancing. If you need music to do a sport—then it's not a sport. Just because you move your body in an active way does not make that activity a sport. I'll throw in cheerleading and figure skating as well–they are all routines set to music. Dance.

    • saywho?

      I think you forgot about gymnastics. I guess you wouldn't mind telling all the gymnasts out there that they should not be considered for the Olympics as well since those athletes would not be competing in a "sports" setting and are just "dancing".

    Definition of SPORT: competi tive physical activity. So by definition, pole dancing in this case is in fact a sport! But it is your perogative to like it or not.
