A few years ago, my brother and I were sitting at a coffee shop, and all of a sudden he got this really horrified look on his face and said, “Do you realize at the end of ‘Home Alone,’ Joe Pesci was about to bite off all of Macaulay Culkin’s fingers, and he totally would…

“Spring Breakers” was a movie about four hot chicks in bikinis who become sexy bank robbers. “Fall Breakers,” according to this hilarious parody trailer, is a movie about four hot chicks in plaid flannel shirts and cardigans who are really into pumpkin spice lattes and writhing around in crunchy leaves.

Coupled But Don’t Have Kids? You Might Be DINK Or A DILDO

In this video, Lauren Cook and Kurt Braunohler explain how adult people don’t have to be “baby people” — they can be DINKS (double income, no kids) and DILDOS (double income, large dog owners). It’s annoying to bubble baby a baby, but putting a large dog in a Baby Bjorn that’s CUTE. So, if you…

I Can’t Quite Put My Finger On What The Aerial View Of This Church Resembles

Christian Scientists are not known for their sense of humor, but have a look at this bird’s-eye view of the Christian Science Society of Dixon, Illinois, and tell me that God isn’t laughing right about now. Furthermore, the congregation’s slogan is “rising up.” All of the jokes have already been made. I didn’t even have…

Britney Spears Is Apparently British For Halloween

Happy Halloween from Britney Spears and her Madonna-esque faux-English accent, which she utilizes to recite the opening monologue of “Thriller” while cavorting, uh, creepily alongside green-screen ghouls and graveyards. I don’t completely understand what I’ve just seen, but Bert-Bert looks conscious, which is ALWAYS a good thing. [Jezebel]…

This Fake “Lord Of The Rings” Subway Service Advisory Poster Isn’t All That Far From The Truth

Relying on the New York City subway system is sometimes like relying on a three-legged, one-eyed horse for all of your transportation needs. Trying to get from my apartment off the G train to a friend’s apartment off the L train on a Saturday evening is a trip that should theoretically take 20 minutes, but…

Period, The Musical

Broadway seems to be out of ideas for original musicals and YouTube user Lena D has a penned a beautiful song that so many women can relate to. They can come together and make one of the most hard-hitting musicals that the Great White Way has seen in a while. I’m envisioning it now: “Period…

Proof That Turn Of The Century Suffragettes Could Snark With The Best Of Them

This hilariously biting piece of satire was written by suffragette activist/poet Alice Duer Miller in 1915, but replace the word “votes” with “reproductive rights” and it could easily be a modern day blog post. Here’s the full text, in case you can’t read the small print in the graphic:…

Watch This: What If Horror Movie Characters Made Good Decisions?

Even the best horror movie storylines hinge on the main characters making very, very poor decisions. From exploring an abandoned mental institution to spending the weekend at a serial killer’s cabin to pushing play on a cursed videotape to taking every opportunity to split up and explore dark corners alone, horror movie characters are alway…

Your Favorite Pop Stars Get Furbified (Yes, That Means Furbies)

I am a product of the ’90s, so there was a period of time in my childhood wherein Furbies were my world. It could have been months, it could have been a year; whatever it was, Furbies are indelible in my memory lexicon. They were actually VERY CREEPY, which is probably why my parents were…

This Drunken Ronald McDonald Clip Was Too Much For Adult Swim

Adult Swim, the deranged nocturnal twin of Cartoon Network, is a pleasant, hilarious reprieve from the mostly squeaky-clean nature of cable TV. The Wikipedia page cites “minimal or no editing for content,” which sounds about right: there are precious few things that are deemed too risqué or outlandish for the nightly programming. One of these…

Why Throw A Bouquet At Your Wedding When You Could Throw Cats?

If brides were to toss kittens into the crowd for all the single ladiez, I would actually make an effort to grab it. Bouquets, on the other hand, are best handled with a subtle side-step away from whatever direction they’re going in. No cats were harmed in the making of this meme, but it doe…
