  1. “I Would Not Want To Trick Or Treat In This”: Men Try On Sexy Halloween Costumes

    "Give the girls some pants! Pants can be f**king sexy!"

    Someone I very much respect and admire once said (via Lindsay Lohan in a movie script) that Halloween is the one time of year when a woman can dress slutty and no one can give her crap for it. Which is great for those who welcome the opportunity, but the Halloween-industrial complex has gone a bit... erm, overboard with that idea. Don't believe us? Let BuzzFeed demonstrate with some of the the weirdest and most inappropriate costumes on the market today, as modeled by pasty men.

  3. The Onion To Debut New Website Parodying Buzzfeed and Upworthy

    I can't make a sub-header joke when I'm writing about The Onion. That's flying a little too close to the sun.

    America's Finest News Source has a new platform for satirizing uniquely 20th century media--on Tuesday The Onion announced Clickhole.com, a site dedicated to parodying Upworthy , Buzzfeed, and endless over-sharing.

  4. True Friends Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen Play The Newlywed Game [Video]

    It's okay to be jealous of everyone involved in this.

    "The Newlywed Game" is a fun cruel exercise where couples compete to see how well they really know their partner. Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen aren't a romantic couple, but they do have an enviable friendship -- although judging from this video, they definitely wouldn't win in a relationship trivia smackdown.

  5. Dave Coulier Took BuzzFeed’s “Which Full House Character Are You?” Quiz

    Guess which character he is.

    Something like 40% of all Facebook posts are people posting their BuzzFeed "Which _______ Character Are You?" quiz results. I'm pretty over the whole thing, but today Dave Coulier took the Full House character quiz and I found myself captivated by the idea that he might not get the right result. So who'd he get?

  6. Without the GIFs and Images, Buzzfeed Articles are Hilariously, Terrifyingly Surreal

    But how will I be able to tell people what I'm feeling without screen caps from Mean Girls??

    Like 'em or not, you've gotta hand it to Buzzfeed -- they've turned sharing GIFs on the Internet into an art form. But when you strip all the images away, what's left? Nothing but curiously vague bits and pieces of phrases. Honestly, after reading some of these, it really should have occurred to us earlier that a Buzzfeed staffer was behind @horse_ebooks.

  7. Watch A Surprisingly Satisfying Takedown Of Buzzfeed’s Editorial Practices [Video]

    This will probably be the only original content on the Internet that never appears on Buzzfeed.

    Say what you want about the Internet juggernaut Buzzfeed -- no, really. Say what you want. They don't care; they're too busy making spagillions of money every time you click on one of their lists. Speaking of which, Maddox of The Best Show In The Universe on Youtube has a lot of gripes that he would like to get off his chest re: Buzzfeed.

  8. Facebook Abandoned Feature to Show How Many People View Your Posts

    Because 'Like' is more important than 'Look'

    More people look at your Facebook posts then 'Like' and 'Share' them. That's a fact that everyone is vaguely aware of, but it might surprise you to know that Facebook tested a feature that would tell you how many people saw your posts, and decided that people didn't want it. According to Facebook engineer Lars Backstrom, the call was made that users wouldn't be interested in how many people saw the content they passed along -- just how many reacted to it. "People are way more interested in seeing *who* liked their posts, rather than just the number of people who saw it," he said in a Facebook post of his own.

  9. BuzzFeed and CNN Sitting in a Tree, Y-O-U-T-U-B-E

    You got your news in my cat memes. You got your cat memes in my news. CNN and BuzzFeed join forces for new YouTube channel.

    Internet-list authority BuzzFeed has teamed up with CNN and YouTube to create a "CNN BuzzFeed" channel on the popular video site. The channel will feature archival footage, and create new content that we imagine will fall somewhere between ridiculous link bait and regular link bait. Get ready for headlines like, "15 Biggest White House Press Briefing Fails" and, "9 Cats That Are Sick and Tired of Partisan Bickering."
