JUST DON'T DO IT! Although, I get it, a sunset does look much better through an LCD screen.
Oh God Kitty, hang on! Help is
Who knew cats sitting on glass would be so cute? (Hat tip to Javier!)
He's cute, but he's such a douchepug. In case you couldn't already tell from that popped pink collar. Add yours!
#Occupy protestors receive some kind words from a somewhat unlikely place.
All the delicious homemade honey you could want without the hassle of explaining the bee infestation to your landlord. The design plans are simple. The bees enter from outside your window with a small spigot on the inside. This catches honey but doesn't release said bees into your apartment.
Why? Because the internet is the only one that "cares."
There are two types of people watching this video. The ones who will think it is awesome...and liars.
NPR producer Marshall Terry was doing a story on a pepper that is currently up for consideration as one of the world's hottest. He ate a piece and then began hallucinating. But he did it for journalism!
This is the worst idea I've ever heard. And I've seen the trailer for Adam Sandler's "Jack and Jill," so I know bad ideas.
Surprisingly catchy. Unsurprisingly creepy.
The Elder Scroll games are known for their vast open world gameplay. Kotaku bravely ventures from one end of Skyrim to the other; but even in fast motion it still takes nearly nine minutes.
"Can y'all do the stanky leg for the happy birthday boy?" This is beyond bizarre.
Man isn't 11/11/11 great, you guys? Unless of course you're trying to find entertainment on the Internet today. Because it's a ghost town out here. Where is everyone?
So you're telling me that I get The Muppets and a new Toy Story adventure? I must be dreaming. I cannot wait.
Famed cartoonist R. Crumb says he'll never again work for the New Yorker after they rejected this cover without explanation. They commissioned Crumb in 2009 to do a cover on the subject of gay marriage, he turned this in, they rejected it and gave no reason. Too offensive? Not offensive enough? Only David Remnick knows for sure.
In 2009, R. Crumb was commissioned to do a cover on same-sex marriage for The New Yorker. His was rejected by the magazine and he wasn't given a reason why. Crumb's guess? "The New Yorker is majorly politically correct, terrified of offending some gay person.”
The woman who has oft-been accused of destroying the greatest band in history, and general cuckoo bananas lady, Yoko Ono has a Twitter account. I know. It doesn't make sense. But I waded through her timeline, and here's what I've learned.
Normally voters are screwed by politicians, not each other. Seriously though, between this and the Medvedev Girls, Russian politics are turning into an episode of "Entourage" that has nuclear capabilities.
The internet was a scary and mysterious place in the '90s. This clip (and her nose ring) is perfect.
Well this is a totally normal casting call. I'm sure all participants are SAG members, and that the production will be well insured.
Flannery O'Connor was a brilliant, funny, dark writer of amazing fiction. But it turns out that wasn't all she was interested in. She was also a cartoonist. A collection of her work, Flannery O'Connor: The Cartoons, is being published this December by Fantagraphics. Here are some examples of her work.
These couples at Goteborg Cathedral in Sweden all just happened to get married at the same time on the same day in the same place. Someone is a little too into numerology. And by "someone" I mean 22 people.
This is the horrific and damning story of Victim 2. From the Grand Jury Report into the alleged and repeated rape of young boys by former Penn State Assistant Coach Jerry Sandusky. The report identifies at least 8 victims, but Victim 2 is the case that directly involved Head Coach Joe Paterno and the upper echelons of the Penn State hierarchy. The abuse that's described, and the resultant cover up, is shocking.
This is the way the world ends.
In 1969, Sesame Street filmed a test episode to show to focus groups. The role of Gordon was played by an actor different than those who would eventually play the role once the show aired on television. The problem? The people at Sesame Street don't know who this man is and they need your help to figure it out!
This kid is going to grow up to be awesome. Anybody who is this predisposed to love Biggy is good with me.
This is why I haven't been getting the girls. Note to self, less witty banter, more paragliding with your pet hawk.
