It turns out that Olympics wolf in the dorm video was another JIMMY KIMMEL hoax! This time Kimmel got U.S. luge star Kate Hansen to send him a photo of the hallway outside her dorm room, then had his art department recreate a life-sized replica in his studio. They then brought in a real wolf to walk past the camera and he had Kate send out the video. Last night they unveiled the extended version that shows Kimmel skiing through the hallway after the wolf saying, "Have you seen my wolf?" Kate says she had to deal with some serious security issues after she posted the video saying, "Honestly, there was a little more backlash than I thought there'd be. Security started freaking out, because technically there was a breach. It kind of went a little crazy over here." (See here)

Merrimack, New Hampshire's 75-year-old Menahem Lowy was shoveling his driveway while a snowplow repeatedly pushed snow back across the entrance. Finally having enough, Lowy walked in front of the snowplow and refused to move until police arrived. Lowy later said, "I am not proud of (the arrest), but all I was doing was cleaning my driveway. I don't know what I did wrong." However, police did know what Lowy did wrong and cleared a path for him to jail.
