Mash-up: Moose on the loose

The CNN Daily Mash-up is a roundup of some of the most interesting, surprising, curious, poignant or significant items to appear on CNN.com in the past 24 hours. We top it with a collection of the day's most striking photographs from around the world.

Not a fan of paparazzi

Brent Olsen looked out his window in Westford, Vermont, and saw a bull moose placing a hoof on Olsen's car.

"I had run out in my shorts from the morning and I started hollering at it: 'Do not jump on my car, Mr. Moose,'" Olsen told CNN affiliate WCAX.

Once he was satisfied his car was safe, Olsen decided to shoot some video of the "cute" animal with ivy tangled in its antlers.

That's when the scene switched from a nature documentary to some kind of weird slasher movie. WCAX tells the rest of the story here.

How long can you hold your breath?

The first family, firsthand

Michelle Obama offered listeners an intimate look into how the presidency affects family dynamics and vice versa Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention.

Well, today, after so many struggles and triumphs and moments that have tested my husband in ways I never could have imagined, I have seen firsthand that being president doesn't change who you are - it reveals who you are.

Spectacular clouds follow storm

CNN iReporter Jim Jorstad in La Crosse, Wisconsin, saw an ominous yellow glow out the window of his house on Tuesday night and raced outside to see some impressive cloud formations.

CNN meteorologist Sarah Dillingham explains the pillow-like clouds are called "mammatus" for their "breast-like" appearance. "They are a typical cloud formation that we see with active or dying thunderstorms," she said. "These clouds typically appear most impressive as the sunlight shines behind a trailing thunderstorm and reveals their incredible structure."

On the horizon: Obama acceptance speech, VMAs

President Barack Obama will accept his party's renomination with a speech on the final day of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.

MTV's Video Music Awards show will be broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. ET.

    @banasy, another friend of mine insists on tattooing her lips and her brows. Very unnatural looking. Lip pencils are cheap. @chrissy. I'm sure No No is just another pricey scam. When I get my nails and toes done, this is always on the informercials.

    @ dazzle, my daughter bought one and she loves it! She says after awhile your hair doesnt grow back. Guess that makes it worth the price.

    You women have to have a touch of sadism in you. I can't imagine the pluck, tweez, wax, or all that other stuff you women do. All I can say is O-U-C-H.

      @bobcat(In a hat) a Manzillian is the same as a Brazillian wax for women.

      @bobcat(iah) you don't need it. But your wife could always help you out if you need it. I don't know if that's a good or bad thing.

    It looks like I wandered in on a grooming tips discussion. I figure as long as I comb my hair and shave at least once per week, I'm good.
