Need some schadenfreude to brighten your Tuesday? Enjoy a glorious six seconds of this woman twerking her way out of a moving vehicle. At least you’re having a better day than her! In case you’re wondering, the twerker in question wasn’t hurt in her epic fall from grace – her friend insisted to the interwebs that she’s “fine and just a little ashy.” [Jezebel]
Working at the Frisky means coming across lots of terrible stock photos that make us tilt our head to one side and wonder WTF kind of twisted world the characters in the photos are living in. The Stock Photobomber takes that pondering to the next level by inserting pictures of himself into stock photos, making them even more bizarre than they were to begin with. The site’s creator is an art director in advertising, and is thus forced to stare at weirdass stock photography on the regular. He says on the site that stock photos stir in him “the same uncomfortable feeling I have when my bank teller asks me with a forced smile, how my morning is going or when I eat “Chick’n” or see an interview with Tom Cruise. It’s not simply that my teller’s greeting, the vegan meat substitute and the celebrity scientologist are fake, it’s how hard they pretend that they’re not – that’s what really gets under my skin.” That’s what launched him on the quest to, in his words, “photobomb the shit” out of them.

She quickly realizes that he might be trying to profess his love for her, but after a few more minutes of signage, what he actually reveals is SO much better. In fact, the writers at “SNL” did such a fantastic job, that Amy eventually can’t keep a straight face anymore and struggles to keep it together as Pete does his thing (also holding back the giggles). This is why I love Christmas.
BBC correspondent Quentin Sommerville was reporting a drug bust in Afghanistan and was placed, for his report, in front of a pile of 8.5 tons of burning heroin, opium, and hashish. It went precisely as you’d imagine. Keep reading »
Fly Art is the Tumblr brainchild of two women, Gisella and Toni, who have the art history background and pop cultural investment to be able to humorously pair classic artworks with classic hip-hop lyrics to tremendous humorous effect. Internet boutique Rad has teamed up with Fly Art to create Fly Art for Rad, a line of clothing and prints that’s basically what would happen if someone said to me, “What three things that you love can we combine and make wearable?” I’M IN LOVE, is what I’m saying.
