The crew of Good Day NY were playing a game of "Name That Tune" on the air, and one of them happened to choose DMX's 1999 anthem 'Party Up.' Someone forgot to actually listen to the song first before playing it, though. As soon as DMX yells "suck my d-ck," anchor Greg Kelly lets out a surprised yell and tells them to turn it off while the rest of the crew remain cool, which is all the more surprising seeing as it was the very same Greg Kelly who, just last week, basically sexually harassed a field reporter on the air. Priorities, Greg.

Tech of the Day: This Robot Can Play Beer Pong Better Than You

Sorry bro, your days of dominating everyone at beer pong are numbered.

Empire Robotics has created a robotic arm with a specialized ball on the end of it that hardens and softens to pick up objects.

So, for example, it can pick up ping pong balls and toss them into Solo cups.

Watch it flawlessly make 6 cups in a row in the video above, and – if you dare – challenge it in person at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

"The robot is not perfect, so it's possible for a human to win, but it's pretty good, so you'd have to be pretty good at beer pong," said the company's project manager John Dean.
