Horsemaning: The New Planking

"Horsemaning," or fake beheading, was a popular way of taking pictures in the 1920s. It's currently experiencing a revival and is basically the new planking. Here are some modern day adaptations of this popular new/old photo trend.

Dr. Zoidbird

Hermes: Soon he'll be stronger and more flexible than Hercules and Gumby combined! Dr. Zoidberg: Gumbercules? I love that guy!

Dow Drops 634 Points

The Dow Jones fell a staggering 634 points today, even worse than last week's 513 point stockpocalypse. It's the worst single day loss on Wall Street since November of 2008. The S&P downgrade of the United States' credit rating weighed heavily on the markets. Break out your Dr. Strangelove survival kits.

The Andover Rap Song: Because Prep School Wasn't Easy Enough To Hate

Phillips Andover has a rap song in which students tell us all the ways that Andover is the best place to go to high school. I suppose I was just listening to Jay-Z and Kanye rap about their rich lifestyles so why should this be any different? (Oh, right, because they know how to rap.)

10 Things You Didn't Know About Stand By Me

Today is the 25th anniversary of Rob Reiner's classic adaptation of Stephen King's short story "The Body," or as the world remembers it "Stand By Me." Here are 10 things you didn't know about Gordie, Chris, and company

What Is The Hamptons "Jitney"?

Not only is this the song of the summer, but you also get to find out the secret of the "Hamptons Jitney." Prepare to be amazed.

Scientists Suspect Flowing Water On Mars

Time to break out another round of rovers? The brown streaks appear during the Martian spring and summer but disappear again in the winter. This cycle then repeats, leading scientists to hypothesize that it is evaporating water.

The Jackie O Tapes

ABC was granted exclusive access to never-before-heard interviews with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis from the Kennedy Library, and British tabloids are claiming to have learned the most salacious details from the secret tapes. ABC flatly denies these reports, but will not address specifics until their own special airs in September. In the meantime, here are the juiciest bits alleged to be in the Jackie O tapes.

Batman T-Rex

Rrrraaaaawwwwrrrrrr! It's dinosaur for "I am the frackin' Batman!"

Shocking Photos From The London Riot

Thirty-five officers were injured and over one-hundred and sixty people arrested over the weekend. The violence broke out in the gritty north London suburb of Tottenham on Saturday night amid community anger over a fatal police shooting of a 29-year-old father of four. Police said "copycat criminal" violence spread to other parts of the city Sunday night and early Monday, including, briefly, London's busy shopping and tourist district at Oxford Circus.

Weirdest Craigslist Ad Ever?

Read that headline again... Do you know how weird something has to be for it to be the weirdest Craigslist ad ever? This is that weird. All I will say is that it involves a ridiculous request, dinosaurs, and babysitting.

Brandon Jennings Goes NBA Street At Dyckman

Nothing like the old "Embarrass your opponent by throwing the ball off his head" move to bring back memories of And 1 Mixtape Tours and PS2 basketball. Now if only Jennings could shoot...

Awesome Saved By The Bell Music Video Is Dark, Weird

Actor/Musician Miles Fisher has put out this crazy but great music video. I mean David Koechner is in it. How awesome can one video be? That said it's weirdly violent for being Bayside-based, but as it uses the cast of Final Destination 5 that makes a degree of sense. The song, "New Romance," is kind of great too.

This Is Why We Don't Play Mario Kart In Real Life

And when I say "we don't play Mario Kart," what I mean is "we don't tow your friend behind the car on his big wheel." I would judge Australia, but I'm sure people do the same dumb stuff here.
