Things We Saw Today: Presents Opening Children

Rob Sheridan just created an entire generation of presentarians — children who are against opening presents. But don’t worry — it will only be a phase, like wearing black lipstick and talking about joining the Peace Corps. (via Kuriositas)

This is the cast of NBC‘s Community as Batman villains. You can thank Ben Deguzman, an animator who worked on Call of Duty: Black Ops. Shirley, Shirley, Shirley! (via Geek Tyrant)

Hey, want to hear David Tennant read vampire stories? You can totally do that it you want to, you just have to visit his official fan blog. And here’s a picture, which is unrelated to vampires.

The Venture Bros. co-creator Jackson Publick (aka Chris McCulloch) has provided a short update on the upcoming fifth season, saying that it will begin production in early January. To tide us over, he posted a seven-page comic he did called “Oh, To Be Super!” for The Bride of Monkeysuit. (via Publick Nuisance)

  • According to a new survey, the most annoying word of 2011 was “Whatever.” When you’ve been on the internet as long as we have, though, we could think of an entire dictionary’s worth of even more annoying words. #winning (via The Daily Mail)

      Wasn’t “whatever” from 10-15 years ago?  It was a 90s term and has fallen out of favor.  I don’t think it was used as much this year, and I agree, I can think of a billion words or catch-phrases which would better fit the description of ‘annoying’.

      Apparently, you didn’t think the bigoted, “herp derp” was annoying.

      Is herp derp specifically making fun of, er, intellectually challenged people? I thought it was just a general term for a dopey expression.
