About a year after I first started working at The Frisky, Jessica was going through a bunch of old papers and somehow unearthed my résumé. I can’t believe they actually let me work here, because my (very brief) summary of education and accomplishments did not look all that unlike this hand-written document by a 20-year-old Jean-Michel Basquiat. Same references and everything, it’s crazy. It is not likely that my inchoate job application will one day sell for $50,000, but hey, you never know. [Complex]
Out and hilarious lesbian vlogger Hart was asked by some followers why she dresses so masculine. “If you don’t like men, then why do you dress like them?” was a common refrain. To shut down the haterz who just aren’t getting it, Hart made this video, in which she explains that just because you like something doesn’t mean you have to dress like it. By that logic, dudes would be dressing like ladies, and I would be dressing like sandwiches, which, hey, doesn’t sound like the worst idea. [YouTube]
Snack technology is one of my primary interests. I really enjoy seeking out the newest and best in snackovation. Which is why I really have to tip my hat to the fine folks at Burger King, who have created a wonderful trough-like invention to make eating gross fast food even better. But how does it work? Basically, the Burger Holder works similarly to the Sky Mall fave wine glass holder necklace but looks charmingly like a heavy-duty corrective dental device.
You wear it around your neck for hands-free eating, so you can get back to whatever it is you were doing (texting/playing D&D/writing Power Rangers fanfic) before. The only problem with the BK Burger Holder? It’s not a real product. Yet! [YouTube]
What with “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” its various spin-offs both real and rumored, and their omnipotent media presence, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and krew don’t really leave much to the imagination. But, as fate would have it, there’s one big, bad secret they’ve managed to keep from America: they’ve actually been cats this whole time. Honestly, I almost didn’t notice anything different about the Kardash klan in this video by Giulia Rozzi. They look pretty much the same to me. [YouTube]
A friend of mine took this picture at the American Ale House in State College, PA, and all I can say is I 100 percent understand the sentiment. I used to DJ pretty regularly, and people would come up to me all the time with requests. Sometimes they were nice, and sometimes they were pushy (a rock and punk DJ is probably never ever going to play that dubstep jam you really like). And sometimes — a lot of the time — they requested Michael Jackson. One time, a girl came up to me and requested a Guns ‘N’ Roses song and offered me $25 to play it. People are crazy (and really like to throw their money around).
But really, lay off the “Margaritaville,” okay?
After being the victim of one too many pranks by a mail customer, the Royal Mail service (allegedly!) sent one postal customer a letter, asking him to lay off with the post-related comedy. So far as we can tell, the letter receiver, known as S. Whitman, raised the ire of the Royal Mail for “jumping out from behind a giant bush shouting ‘beware the giant bees’, repeatedly answering the door naked, and … claiming you’d been attacked by ‘crack-added Oompah Loompahs.”
As a result of the series of jokes, the letter continues, “a number of our postal staff are now nervous about delivering to your address. As such, we would kindly ask you to desist from you ‘surprises.’” A larger image of the letter is after the jump. Keep reading »
Ahem, excuse me Captain, but I think we’re being followed. This is the world’s largest rubber ducky, seen here floating around Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour. Designed by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, its aim is to “spread joy around the world.” The duck has also been caught ducking off in Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and Osaka, Japan. Where it’ll be next is anyone’s guess, but Hofman says he just wants to make people smile. “The Rubber Duck knows no frontiers, it doesn’t discriminate people and doesn’t have a political connotation,” he wrote on his website. “The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them. The rubber duck is soft, friendly and suitable for all ages!” [Daily Mail]
Ever take a test in high school and just know you don’t know the answer? Most of us would leave the scantron, or the paper blank, but some very special students elevate wrong answers to an artform. Take this special student who created a Neanderthal metal band, aptly titled Neandertallica. Check out a couple more choice exam fails after the jump! [ Keep reading »
When my youngest son was maybe 2 years old, he crept outside our bedroom door very early one morning while my husband and I were still asleep. I awoke to a deadpan, tiny voice whispering, “Let her in. Let. Her. In. Let her in,” over and over and over.
Turns out the cat was pawing at the back door, and he was just informing us it was time to, you know, let her in. But holy shitballs, that wasn’t even remotely my first thought. (My first thought was vampires, okay? IT WAS VAMPIRES.)
That was a legitimately spooky moment, but it doesn’t even hold a (flickering, ghostly) candle to this hair-raising Reddit thread titled, “Parents, what is the creepiest thing your young child has ever said to you?” Clocking in at over 11,000 comments, the forum is filled with an amazing array of stories ranging from hilariously weird to downright terrifying.

Are you over screaming goats yet? It’s okay, neither are we. But in the event that you’d like a new hilarious animal sound/pop song mashup, we present to you Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” with kitten backup singers. Who knew JTims sounded so much like an angry cat? [HyperVocal]
