'Jurassic World' Trailer: Welp, We Went Too Far with Dinosaur Cloning Again


Though the Jurassic World trailer wasn't scheduled to premiere until Thursday, Universal has apparently decided to give us all an early, "Happy Thanksgiving; also, please don't play God," because here it is:

Alien Facehugger Dog Leash Is A Real Product


This is the Alien Facehugger Dog Leash made and sold by Etsy shop GCFX. It costs $150, which is a little out of my dog leash budget (I use three shoelaces tied together and a safety pin). Also, the facehugger is actually attached to a black fabric harness, which is hard to see in this photo because it blends in with the dog. Speaking of -- what kind of dog is that anyway? "Stuffed." Do those make good guard dogs? I'm thinking about growing weed.

Keep going for a couple closeups.

Lettuce Sleep In Peace: The Cheeseburger Bedding Set


What do you say -- sleep between my buns?

Remember that pizza bedding set? Well now there's a cheeseburger version (available HERE for around $80). I'll tell you what: instead of big spoon/little spoon, I'll pretend to be a pickle and you pretend to be a jalapeno. Then we'll have a pillow fight. Man, this is going to be the best sleepover ever.

Thanks to TBTMH, who made a special sauce reference. Gross!

Super Mario Themed Dancing With The Stars Performance


This is a video of Sadie Robertson from Duck Dynasty and her professional dancing partner Mark Ballas performing a Super Mario inspired routine for their freestyle performance on Dancing With The Stars (technically, Dancing With People I Had To Google). It was a real FEAST FOR THE SENSES. Just not the eyes or ears. I'm kidding, it's fine. Kidding again, I couldn't get the video to play.

Keep going for the video.

LEGO's Inspiring Message To Parents In the 1970's


This is the note that was included with some LEGO doll house sets in the 70's, reminding parents that it's okay for girls to want to play with rocketships and boys to build dollhouses. It's weird to think some parents actually needed to be reminded of that. I had a Cabbage Patch Doll growing up. And a My Little Pony. It was pink with blue hair. I bet my mom still has it. Plus a jar full of my baby teeth. Ooh -- and my rat-tail. I know for a fact she has my rat-tail in an envelope somewhere.

Thanks to Luis, who agrees there's nothing wrong with a boy wanting a Polly Pocket playset (I had two of those too).

Eating Your Feelings: The Whole-Pint Ice Cream Scoop


This is the Giant Ice Cream Scoop available from Hammacher Schlemmer. It costs $60 *spit-takes rainbow sprinkles* and scoops out a whole pint. Alternatively, buy Ben & Jerry's. That's what I do. I don't even need a spoon, I just peel back the paper as I eat my way down. Does this shirt make me look fat? "No, you just are fat." Cool, that's what I thought.

Thanks to PYY, who buys those big gallon buckets of ice cream because you can wear the bucket as a cool helmet when you're done.

Fill The Oceans With Concrete: Anglerfish Captured On Film In Natural Habitat


This is a video captured by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute of a female anglerfish (aka Black Seadevil) in her natural habitat. Allegedly it is the first time scientists have managed to document the fish in the wild. And, God wiling, it will also be the last. *picking up phone* Hello, Poseidon? Let's make a deal.

Keep going for the video.

Nickelodeon & Toyota Team Up For A SpongeBob Minivan


To promote the upcoming 2015 release of the SpongeBob movie, Nickelodeon and Toyota teamed up to build this SpongeBob themed Toyota Sienna. The minivan is currently on display at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, which I will be attending dressed as a mysterious man with beard and mustache so I can steal a Ferrari and drive it out of the building. Amazingly, Toyota actually agreed to let me take this SpongeBobmobile for a spin. "And?" It's gone now. "You drove it into the ocean." I mean, they never explicitly said it WASN'T a submarine. That's their bad, and I'd appreciate it if they got their stupid lawyers to stop contacting me.

Keep going for several more shots including the exterior (with removable eyeballs so you can see out the windshield), and character-colored seating.
