The dog-with-human-hands-gag has been done plenty of times before on the Internet. It's a classic. But healthy pet food company Fresh Pet has just taken it to the next level. They set up an entire holiday dinner for a slew of dogs, and one cat, with human hands to enjoy a fresh and delicious Christmas meal.

Joe Cocker, one of rock music's most distinctive performers, has died of lung cancer. He was 70 years old.

The BBC reports that Cocker's agent, Barrie Marshall, 'confirmed that he had died of an undisclosed illness,' adding that it 'will be impossible to fill the space he leaves in our hearts.' But ITV has an official statement from Sony Music:

'John Robert Cocker, known to family, friends, his community and fans around the world as Joe Cocker, passed away on Dec. 22, 2014, after a hard fought battle with small cell lung cancer.'

He was born on May 20, 1944, in Sheffield, Yorkshire, England, and started his music career in a skiffle band called the Cavaliers in the late '50s. In the mid-'60s he formed the Grease Band, and by 1968 he had a hit with a cover version of the Beatles' 'With a Little Help From My Friends.'

In 1969, he was one of the breakout stars at Woodstock, where the 25-year-old singer's voice and stage mannerisms propelled him to stardom. The following year, he scored his first Top 10 hit, a cover of the Box Tops' 'The Letter.'

He also toured with the 43-piece Mad Dogs & Englishmen revue in 1970, which resulted in his biggest album, a live LP recorded at the Fillmore East that hit No. 2 and went gold. Two albums from 1969 — his debut, 'With a Little Help From My Friends' (which included guitar by Jimmy Page), and 'Joe Cocker!' — were also awarded gold records.

Throughout the decade, he hit the Top 40 with several songs, including 'Cry Me a River,' 'High Time We Met,' 'Midnight Rider' and 'You Are So Beautiful,' which reached No. 5.

Cocker's biggest single came in 1982, when 'Up Where We Belong,' a duet with singer-songwriter Jennifer Warnes' from the movie 'An Officer and a Gentleman,' stayed at No. 1 for three weeks. His last Top 40 hit was with 1989′s 'When the Night Comes.'

Maybe even more than from his music, Cocker's popularity stemmed from his spastic stage performance, which he said was inspired by Ray Charles' similar movements at the piano. The mannerisms were so identifiable with Cocker that John Belushi once joined him on 'Saturday Night Live,' where they sang 'Feelin' Alright' together.

Cocker was awarded with an Order of the British Empire in 2007 and staged a successful European tour last year. His last show was in London in June. Back in September, Billy Joel announced onstage that Cocker wasn't feeling well. He's survived by his wife, a stepdaughter and two grandchildren.

Warner Bros. Pictures has just released a new trailer for Clint Eastwood's upcoming military drama, American Sniper. Check it out in the player below!

The film, which hits theaters in a limited release on December 25 with plans to expand everywhere on January 16, stars Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook, Guardians of the Galaxy) and Sienna Miller (Stardust, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and tells the true story of Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. There was much more to him, however, than just his skill as a sharpshooter.

Fox News Channel rising star Megyn Kelly was ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel's guest last night when the big news was about the Justice Department's upcoming announcement the Sony hack, and movie-theater threat ,were the work of the North Korean government in retaliation for the studio's movie The Interview.

Kelly and Kimmel agreed Sony needed to get the movie — a comedy about a bumbling talk show host and his producer recruited by the CIA to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un — to viewers so the studio, and Americans, could take a stand against North Korea. Kimmel speculated Sony would simply let pirates put it out, so as not to put theater-goers, or content distributors at risk.

As Kelly talked boldly about the country's need to take a stand, Kimmel jumped in.
'Do you think Fox News will take a stand and air The Interview in its entirety – on its channel? Yes!?' he roared as his studio audience erupted in support of the idea.

'Further updates to follow,' Kelly said.

We're with the dog. That pineapple is up to something.

Earlier this month, YouTube user Jolene Creighton uploaded a video of her pit bull, Stella, barking apprehensively at a pineapple on the counter. When the pineapple is placed in front of her, Stella continues to bark and back away, seemingly trying to warn the foolish humans of the imminent threat.

What should we fear, Stella? Is the pineapple an explosive? Poisonous? A secret listening device from Team Cat?

We may never know the true threat we face.
