    It's hard to top the 7-legged spider, but this is the latest from David Thorne. This time, an acquaintance asks for David's help creating some charts and graphics for a business venture. What happens? The exact same thing you wish you'd done to your boss a million times. Mi... / Continue →

    Apparently a Roomba operating in Israel recently sucked up a poisonous Vipera palaestinae, preventing it from killing a family's two children and pets. Too bad that poor snake WASN'T GONNA DO ANYTHING. One evening last week Efi turned the robot on and left the house. When she... / Continue →

    From Teefury comes 'Hothmas' a seasonal t-shirt feauring an AT-AT Rudolph getting wrapped up by a T-47 airspeeder. Teefury, like shirt.woot, features a different shirt every day. Except, unlike shirt.woot, Teefury's designs are gone forever after 24 hours with no chance of re... / Continue →

    This is a LEGO snowman. As in, a snowman that looks like a giant LEGO minifig. And, even if his head is a little lopsided, I've still got to hand it to the builders: every snowman I've ever built turned into a giant penis. Then the cops would come joke around with it before ... / Continue →

    Well folks, there's a new drunkest beer in town. And that beer is Tactical Nuclear Penguin by BrewDog Brewery in Scottland -- at 32% alcohol by volume content. I WANT IT INSIDE ME! Too bad it's gonna cost $49.50 a bottle. I'm sticking to isopropyl! A warning on the label s... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to see a bunch of robots synchronized to dance to Christmas music? Yeah, me neither. NEVER. Not even at my lowest. But I had to watch it and now you do too. You can barely hear the music over their little mechanical joints creaking, but it's still chock full of... / Continue →

    I don't really understand the Team Edward/Team Jacob rivalry but from what I've gathered it has something to do with if you'd rather have sex with a vampire or werewolf. Me? I've always been a gargoyle kind of guy. These laptop decals are available from Etsy seller vinylfrui... / Continue →

    Apparently the Burj Dubai (the world's tallest building) can't stop getting hit by lightning. Well what do you expect being a half a mile tall? That's like a 7-foot woman walking around and people not yelling, "that's a huge bitch!" Also, this may or may not be Allah's way o... / Continue →

    This is a little gallery of nativity scenes with characters and situations I don't remember reading in the bible. But maybe that's because I read the King James version and IT WAS EDITED. You know that song, 'We Three Kings'? It was originally written, 'We Three Kings and Ou... / Continue →

    The SWITCH Screwdriver has a handle that can transform (and rotate out!) from a standard handle to one that's perpendicular to the shaft for EXTRA TORQUE and EXTREME SCREWING! SUNDAY! SUNDAY SUNDAY! But truthful, I only posted this because one of the inventors' names is Wang ... / Continue →

    Who knew Space Invaders liked playing dress up so much? I did. But only because a couple years ago I caught one waltzing around the apartment in my girlfriend's evening dress and a push-up bra. Kidding, that was me. God I've never felt so pretty. The Many Faces Of A Spac... / Continue →

    This is a little gallery of Star Wars characters' Facebook status updates and replies. They're worth a few laughs. Not as many as if we had a tank of nitrous, but some. Just close your eyes and imagine your best friend getting rammed in the nuts by a kid on a Razor scooter. ... / Continue →

    This is a little cheat-sheet designed to remind you how to defeat your enemies. It might come in handy for some of you, but I don't need it because I can kill just about anything with my good looks. And by good looks I obviously mean laser blaster. Although I did defeat a mi... / Continue →
