Hipster Hitler

I find Hitler humor to be comedic gold. I'm not 100% sure why, but it's probably because it should be taboo but isn't.

This new comic, Hipster Hitler, is no exception. Check it out.

Thanks, John!

Cat Lovers - Whatta bunch of bananas!

I can make more banana jokes than the average person due to my father's love of the fruit. When he taught, his classroom was covered in bananas. It was just like a THING that seemed a bit creepy eventually. But like... he would call his students bananas and bop them over the head with stuffed bananas.

SEE? Creepy. But the 6th graders thought it was like the funniest thing. We have loads of banana Christmas ornaments from them. I think they're great, but my mother rolls her eyes at them and tells us to put them at the back of the tree. What a hater.

Thumbs up, Wendy's!

The Soviet Union was good for something. Fodder for somewhat bigoted advertising!

Thanks, Matt!

There's no embed code for this, so I encourage you to go on over to College Humor for an adorable animal.

No, seriously.

MGMT -- well -- okay so I haven't listened to their newest album. I liked the singles off the last one. Thought the album as a whole wasn't as good as everyone said it was. Still agree they've matured past two gangly teenagers opening for Of Montreal. Fine.

But their videos.

They're like past absurd to the point where they just aren't entertaining anymore?

Maybe I'm just not doing enough drugs.

Anyway, an intervention!

Thanks, Callaghan!

Who knew owls were such alcoholics?

I always just thought that owls had a tendency to blink during photographs, but this website purports that they are actually hungover. Crazy but... I can see it.

Thanks, Nadia!

Why are all the cute ones mass murdering dictators?

Guys, Stalin was totally hot. Too bad he turned out to be such a jackass. Aren't most hipsters, though?

Seriously though, look at this photo.

Human Bicycle

So, like, you know how in America, sports players aren't really allowed to celebrate? Like a quick fist pump and a jump in the stands, but that's about it? Maybe if they were this creative, it'd be more acceptable.

Everyone's seen the Double Rainbow video by now blahblahblah.

I like Blippy's use of it, though. Click the unicorn. Please.

It's a 404!

WWII / Now

This series of photographs takes historic photos of World War II and superimposes them on modern shots. Using careful Photoshop skills, Sergey Larenkov has created new images that are not only visually stunning but also thought provoking. It's almost disturbing to watch people going about their lives where not even a hundred years ago, one of the wars that has most affected today's society raged.

Definitely worth the click.

Chutes & Ladders is so Protestant.

I get kind of sick of comedians trashing religion just for the sake of trashing religion (it's so easy and . . . rude), so I find this highly amusing. I think you'll find it funny, even if you aren't Catholic. You may have to have the sense of humor of an older person, though... Maybe not. Whatever. I like it.

Thanks, Aunt Toni!


I've always loved the vuvuzela (you know, since I first heard about its existence like a month ago...), and now I do even more! This is a good take on Twilight.

(I know I have some readers who like Twilight, so I guess I'm sorry? But not really.)

Evil Owl

I haven't listened to this with sound cos I'm in class but this owl is hilaaaaarious. Check it.

Oh hi...

Hi ignored blog! I kind of . . . didn't forget about you . . . I promise.

To make up being gone for almost a month, I present to you two items today, both having to do with animals.

The first is a link to a series of photos involving lions and soccer balls. Yes. Adorable, I know.

Lions Heart Soccer

The second is a video of a baby and a dog. Awesome, I know. Watch it until the end.


(Thanks to Corey and Amanda for linking to these on Facebook and Twitter, respectively!)

While this has apparently made the rounds (Sam's mother loves it and has for a while now), I had not seen these sheep do their dancing with the LEDs. They are cute and clever (okay so the sheep aren't clever, but the shepherds and the dogs are) and fabulous. Enjoy!

And you don't even need quarters!

This series of photographs of coin-operated rides in New York was liked to by @odessabegay. There's something both magical and frightening about the photos, kind of like pieces from a cheesy horror film. The colors, though, are fantastic. Take a look!

I have no idea what's happening in this video, but Abby said I had to post it, so here it is.

Shake that healthy butt, Gilbert. You too, Sullivan.

I would recommend watching this around 2 in the morning.

Thanks for sending me this like two weeks ago, Jon!

Don't cut off the applause.

I've been gone for a while, but I feel like this is a triumphant return.

Old guys are creepy as shit.

This guy lives next door to you.

He's also your grandfather.

He's any old guy with a computer and too much time on his hands.

Ring ding dong - ringa ding ding ding dong

I admittedly used to hate talking on the phone - especially when I had to call someone. You never knew who was going to pick up, how to address people, if they were scary, etc. For this reason - and for the many long long long never ending conversations with my mother [which I wouldn't give back for the world but you know...] - I truly appreciate this comic.

Ten Reasons to Avoid Talking on the Phone

Thanks, Nadia!

So who watched the Canada-USA game yesterday?

Yes? No? Doesn't matter - check out this highlight:


And this one:

Sir, you're missing some teeth...

Sports advertising is SO much better not in the US.

I love this commercial loads. And I like that the pub looks like the one I used to frequent in London.

And I always kind of embarrassingly like Savage Garden. Shhhh don't tell anyone!

Today I was exploring someone's Facebook, and I came across this video. It's supposed to emulate how foreigners hear English - it's all in gibberish, but it does sound convincing at times.

Not only is it interesting from that perspective, but it's also a great video and fun song.

It's Italian, it's from a couple decades ago, and it'll make you want to dance.

Juan Pablo Amigo

Maybe it's because I'm Catholic, but something does not feel right about this video... The lounge music... The pope licking on the Virgin's ladybits... You know, the whole bit. I would also encourage you to check out this woman's other videos at YouTube. They're pretty classic - and trippy.

Hey laaaadies...

Rugby players have the best bodies. Seriously. They're built like fucking houses - but not in a scary sort of way?

Adidas (NZ) realized that and created probably the most genius marketing campaign ever.

Because, really, isn't the jersey swap everyone's favorite part of any game?

Jersey Swap

A friend does bring up a good point, though:
"i guess it's supposed to attract the ladies/gays??? to buy jerseys...?"
Alright, maybe 'genius' wasn't exactly the word I was looking for earlier.

Thanks, Xavie!

Oh Kermie!

Turns out Christian Bale and Kermit the Frog are the same being. Others reached this conclusion a while ago, but I just found out today. Want proof? Here:

Oooo baby...

As Nadia says, Massachusetts's new slogan should be something along the lines of "we'll embarrass you in public," especially after yesterday's election.

A local weatherman proves this to be true. This is all information I wanted to know and definitely believe:

I feel like maybe this whole making fun of redhead kids thing has gone too far. This poor kid has contemplated SUICIDE because of South Park.

He's so upset, he made a crappy YouTube video complaining about how sad he is.

Maybe he's really sad cos he lives in a shitty neighborhood in a town with shitty weather.

Just saying.

Something New!

I've decided to do something new from now on. Every day that I go to a concert, I will post a video or two of the band I'm going to see. YouTube is acting up for me today, though, so you don't get much excitement. Feel free to explore on your own.

Everyone knows how I feel about people being friends with their parents and children on Facebook (You don't? Oh. I THINK IT'S DUMB AS SHIT.) This website seems to agree with me. There are many other examples of people being fucking idiots on Facebook, as well.

I present to you the cleverly (::rolls eyes::) named Failbooking

Thanks, Lauren!

"I can't control the kittens. Too many whiskers! Too many whiskers!"

This is why I love the Internet. It allows us to transcribe and remember forev- wait, for as long as we archive the website the idiotic and hilarious things our loved ones do.

This is true love - a wife has written down the extremely random musings of her sleeping husband in the Sleep Talkin' Man blog. He seems to dream mostly of anger and cuddly animals with rather interesting results.

This website will last about 60 seconds...

Oh, Nicholas Cage. You are so sad. You have no money.

Maybe you can profit off this site that uses your visage?

"I feel good tonight... Ay mamacita!"

Okay, here's the deal. If you make a middling fake commercial for some class in college, spare us and don't put it on YouTube. We then all see it and then anytime we see you in real life, we'll roll our eyeballs and try to hide our smile when we think of you rubbing yourself because you feel good... because of the perfume you're wearing.

Think I'm being a little too harsh towards those who are unable to act/create sets/etc.?

Think again.
