At first I was excited. “The Epic, Disgusting Removal of a Blackhead 25 Years in the Making,” posted on Jezebel, sounds exactly like my idea of a good time. I love gross shit, I’m a picker myself, and I think we can all agree (right?) that there is something so disgustingly satisfying about popping a zip or removing a blackhead (or watching someone else do those things on YouTube). But a 25-year-old blackhead? Apparently, there is some gross shit that is even too much for me. I suppose I should have realized what I was in for, given Jezebel’s description of the carnage: “It took six minutes to extract what looks to be a rotting Tootsie Roll.” I barely made it through the whole thing and almost burst into tears. Obviously, I need you all to experience the horror as well. (FWIW, I enjoyed this video more than the 27-minute proposal video.) [Jezebel]
You may think you’ve seen the grossest desserts out there (we’ve covered quite a few), but consider first this maggot-removal cupcake showcased by EvilCakehead.com.
In some ways, this cupcake is so much worse than those STD cupcakes or those creepily realistic baby heads made of white chocolate. Read more on Huffington Post…
You’d think that it’d be pretty obvious: clipping your nails in a public place, especially a crowded subway car, is a bad idea. Not just a bad idea, but also a very unhygienic one. And yet! People still feel totally comfortable doing things they should probably only ever do in the privacy of their own homes, under the veil of anonymity on public transportation. Some fed-up soul put up this subway etiquette poster reminding commuters that, no, clipping your rotting toenails is not appropriate public transportation behavior. As the sign notes, “it’s crazy that this even has to be mentioned,” and yet, unfortunately, it really does. [Twitter]
Dear Ian Jett, Subway sandwich artist in Columbus, Ohio,
Look, I get it. You don’t like your job. Sometimes when we’re bored at work, we have this overpowering desire to whip out our genitals and rub it all over things. It’s totally understandable.
But why did you have to be so dumb to let someone take a picture of it and post it on Instagram under your real name? Keep reading »
Oh, is it a WORST NIGHTMARE kind of day? I think it must be, because this is (one of) my actual worst nightmare(s) (I’m neurotic as hell, what can I say): a 19-year-old Chinese woman cracked open a bottle of moisturizer and used much of the contents to, you know, moisturize her face, like womenz do. She noticed something was off about the cream, particularly the smell, and mentioned it to her roommate. You can see where this is going. Zeng Lin’s roommate revealed that, just as she had suspected, the moisturizer was not, in fact, moisturizer. Nah, it was just a bottle full of semen! Of course. Keep reading »
Well that’s it, I give up. I will never, ever, be able to carve a pumpkin as well as this guy. And maybe that’s a good thing? [Neatorama]
