  1. The TSA Doesn’t Think Washington D.C. Is a Real Place in the US

    ...it is though, right?

    Okay, so you know how Washington D.C. is a real place that exists and humans live there and it's not made up? Well apparently knowing that is not a requirement to work for the Transportation Safety Administration(TSA). A TSA agent detained a journalist because he had a D.C. drivers license, which the agent didn't know was a place in the US.

  2. So A Guy Got Stuck In a Giant Vagina Sculpture This Weekend

    USA: last in soccer, first in art appreciation.

    The statue Chacán-Pi by Peruvian artist Fernando de la Jara has stoically stood watch outside the Tübingen University Institute for microbiology and virology in Tübingen, Germany, since 2001. It also happens to depict a giant vagina. Last week, an American student got himself stuck in it and needed to be rescued by local firefighters. There are pictures. You need to see them.

  3. Commercial Featuring Creepy Baby Spider-Man is Selling What?

    The idea of the year 2018 is pretty surreal, isn't it? That's when The Amazing Spider-Man IV is slated to come out... for now. Producer Matt Tolmach told Den of Geek that the release date might not be as set in stone, and that the May 4th, 2018 spot might go to another film in the franchise. Waiting until 2019 for the ultimate film in the Amazing Spider-Man franchise? That's surreal. But admittedly nowhere near as surreal as this commercial for Evian of all things. Previously in The Amazing Spider-Man

  4. Monday Cute: If One of These Sloth Tees Replaced Three Wolf Moon, We’d Be Okay With It

    and let it be known

    Good morning. There is an Amazon retailer that sells shirts of sloths doing various things they probably shouldn't. Like stripping, attacking the Hindenburg, or co-starring in Dirty Dancing. They pretty much all come in women's sizes too. Don't say I never did anything for you.

  5. Exploding Disney Princesses, Because Really, What Else Were You Going to With These Three Minutes

    Pretty Pretty Princess

    Viewer discretion advised for bloody neck stumps, and probably some inner child wincing. But seriously you owe it to yourself to watch as far as the Belle one.

  6. Can We Talk About How Riker Sits on Things?

    To Boldly Go

    If only I weren't five foot four, I might be able to attempt this level of badassery in my every day life. Sadly, this executing this maneuver, especially in front of one's superior officer, is recommended to experienced Rikers. Though, as you can see, the beard is optional. (via Topless Robot.)

  7. The Inevitable Result of Robot Surgery

    The Future Is Now!

    I'll say up front that I have no particular knowledge of the safety of robot assisted surgery, the long-term health effects, or its impact on the medical and patient community, other than the fact that the Wikipedia article on it has no less than four "issues" listed at the top of it and they've all been there since 2010. What I do know, is that this actual commercial is one step away from an actual Saturday Night Live Sketch, and also that they really, really could have come up with a more serious url than one that implies swatting a roomba with a rolled up newspaper. (Also, I just checked, and badrobotsurgery.tumblr.com is totally available, people.) (via I Heart Chaos.)

  8. TV’s Robin, Burt Ward, Comments on Current Robin Events

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    It’s a terrible choice to kill off Robin. Why bite the hand that feeds you? ... Robin should only die in people's imaginations! Or in a state of primal ecstasy! -- Burt Ward. Well, I can certainly understand Ward's distress over the fate of a fictional character that he's close to, even more when he's responsible for embodying one of the most iconic versions of that character. Although it's worth noting that this isn't the first time this has happened, nor is the current Robin even the same character as the one he played in the television show - Wait, did he say in a state of primal ecstasy?

  9. Really Weird Cardiac Arrest PSA Takes Place in Zombie Apocalypse

    Braaaaiiiinnnnns

    The point is... the zombies want you alive when they start to eat you. So you know. Try and show a little respect. (via Topless Robot.)

  10. Medieval Baby Making Complete With Hammer (SFW)

    what is this I don't even

    Unfortunately, this is a "detail of a miniature depicting Nature forging a baby," from around the year 1500, not some depiction of what 16th century Dutch people thought human gestation was like. /sigh I guess history is already awesome enough without that.

  11. Nevermind, Hollywood, Just Keep Making Sequels: Movie About Olympic Swimmer Raised By Whales is Greenlit

    And So It Begins

    It's pretty easy to make fun of Hollywood for making nothing but sequels, adaptations, and remakes lately. After all, it's pretty clear that that's where the big money is being spent. Just look at the movies that made it into our End-of-Summer Round Up: franchise movies like The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus and Men in Black III, reboots like The Amazing Spider-Man and Total Recall, and a slew of movies based on licensed products or previously told stories like Battleship, Snow White and the Huntsman and Dark Shadows. The only fully original film there is Brave. But if this is what we get when Hollywood reaches around for an original idea... how about we just keep making those Spider-Man reboots, huh?

  12. The Most Tragic Tortoise Divorce You’ll Read About All Day

    Today in Depressing

    It seems that even reptiles are susceptible to marital troubles. Two Giant Tortoises at an Austrian zoo have been placed into separate cages after Bibi, the female tortoise, “attacked her partner - biting off a chunk of his shell... until he was moved to another enclosure.” Sick of being cooped up in a cage with her partner Poldi, Bibi seems to have moved on to the single life.

  13. Dapper Dinosaurs, for All Your Formalwear Needs

    Vital Information for Your Everyday Life

    We all know that dinosaurs had it going on in the ruling the earth business for millions of years, but who would have thought that they'd also be creatures of sartorial elegance? The fully accredited research institution known as Dapper Dinos has a wealth of evidence for this theory, all of it very convincing. We can tell by the pixels.

  14. Realistic Fake Pregnancy Bellies Hot Seller in China?

    A Series of Fallopian Tubes

    Man, if China is interested in lifelike pregnancy bellies, I wonder what they'd think of the machine that makes you feel like you're menstruating? According to the Global Times, whose record of journalistic integrity we don't have a lot of experience with but we're letting it slide because this is funny and weird, sales of silica gel (yes, the stuff that comes in shoe boxes and labeled very clearly as inedible) pregnancy bellies have become "hot sellers on the online shopping market." The bellies are advertised as "flesh color," "human skin texture," and "highly comfortable."

  15. Just in Time for Halloween: Creepy Human Baby Chewbacca Doll

    Elsewhere on the internet

    See, I had to put the word "human" in the title, or you might have thought I was just talking about a creepy baby wookie doll. But no. No. Han, Luke, and Leia behind the jump.

  16. Infinitely Regressing Crisis: Dan DiDio Says All Crisis Stories Are No Longer Canon

    Great Hera!

    So, one of the many things that followers of DC comics wondered about feverishly during the lead up to the New 52 is what parts of the DC Universe would remain canon, and we were told that Infinite Crisis and its precursors would remain canonical... despite the modern DC timeline being shortened from about ten or fifteen years to five. This leaves a lot of stuff that has to happen in a very short time, and today somebody asked Dan DiDio specifically about those Crisis events on his Facebook page, where he said:
    Brace yourself, but after further review, there have been no Crisis events in the New DCU.
    But we thought that those of you who are not scholars of the DC universe and it's twisting labyrinthine ways might not understand what this means exactly, and we have prepared a number of similes to help you out. Probably at least one of them will make sense to you.

  19. What Could Possibly Make Cyriak Weirder? Interpretive Dance

    This Exists... Because of A Lady

    Cyriak is the animator behind both this and a more recent sheep-based video that you might be familiar with. I mean, just check out his YouTube channel, there's a bunch of vintage WTF in there. Shena Tschofen choreographed the dance to go along with it, to see what the gyrations of the cows would look like on the human form. (via The Daily What.)

  20. Facepalm of the Day: Mattel Makes Body Conscious Werewolf Doll for Girls

    If we got angry about this kind of thing we'd be angry all the time

    Sometimes things happen in the world that make us angry. And sometimes, the things that happen are just so dumb and subtle that we can't even summon the energy. I mean, we have things to do. And if we got angry about everything we'd be angry all the time. That would, for starters, require a lot more coffee. So last summer Mattel debuted a new line of fashion dolls for girls called Monster High, where all the characters are the offspring of Hammer Horror monsters. While on the surface I think we can accept that a cross between the cartoon version of Beetlejuice and Bratz is just waaay too interesting to not exist; the problem, as Fox News discovered and Jezebel brought to our attention, is in the personal bio of Clawdeen Wolf, daughter of the Wolf Man. Apparently, Clawdeen knows a thing or two about grooming:
    My hair is worthy of a shampoo commercial, and that's just what grows on my legs. Plucking and shaving is definitely a full-time job but that's a small price to pay for being scarily fabulous.
