This is most absurd piece of legislation I've seen...today. Tennessee has just passed a law making it illegal to post anything on the Internet that may "frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress" to anyone, anywhere (IE: EVERYTHING). The Internet: I do not think it is what you think it is.
Andrew Breitbart, despite his gentlemanly assurances, released the x-rated photo of Anthony Weiner's wiener. Now that the congressman's penis has leaked (ew), it's slowly taking over the internet. Cry havoc, and let slip the dongs of Photoshop! Add your own Weinerizations to the comments below. For those who aren't Shop Jockeys, you can still have inappropriate fun with our image editor at the bottom of the page. Penetrate any photo with the TwitDickPic heard round the world!
After getting kicked out of a party at The Savoy in London, this "rolling-drunk reveller" falls down a stairway but continues into the night. This is a real man of steel.
Oh good, I was about out of nightmare fuel.
OMG, ALL THE HARRY POTTER POSTERS YOU COULD EVER WANT. These are action shots - not just faces, folks.THE REAL DEAL. Side note: They got rid of the crappy typography. Hooray!
Recession fallout or best job ever?
Norwegian photographer/filmmaker Terje Sørgjerd just finished a stunning time-lapse video of the days leading up the Arctic "midnight sun" on the archipelago Lofoten. The footage is from April 29-May 10, 2011.
Pokédex 3D, unveiled at Nintendo's E3 convention yesterday, allows you to take photos with your Pokémon. Despite that they're supposedly your "best friend," this dude still looks a little nervous about it.
Better safe than
dead sorry. All across Europe, cucumbers are being destroyed out of fear that they harbor the deadly E. Coli virus.
Then here's an arguably better, but certainly more expedient way to do it.
In a bay thirty miles northeast of San Francisco lies several dozen retired Navy ships, which served in four wars. These "ghost ships" are slowly being scrapped one-by-one, and by 2017 they'll all be gone. Fortunately, photographer Scott Haefner and his friends sneaked past 24-hour patrols to photograph these heroic relics.
If you dream it, you can be it.
I always knew Aaron Burr was a badass.
In a segment devoted to skewering himself over lax coverage of Anthony Weiner on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart took "skewering himself" a bit too literally. Stewart cut his hand on broken glass, but knowing that the penis puns must go on, he bandaged up and finished the show. It's amazing this sort of margarita injury doesn't happen every day on Kathie Lee and Hoda.
A Hennessy Youngman original. It measures 9 by 5 feet, and it's made out of enough authentic Coogi sweaters to keep Bill Cosby warm for a century. It's also probably the first fine art commission done entirely over Twitter. More on its provenance and deep meaning below.
