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

Hell No Horror Movie
"Should we split up?" "HELL NO!"

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 always severely lacking in common sense. This hilarious preview for an imaginary horror movie called “Hell No!” introduces us to something never before seen in the horror genre: sensible characters who do sensible things. You’ll hardly believe your eyes. [YouTube via The Mary Sue]

Ask A Self-Proclaimed Water Sommelier: 6 Pairings For Everyday Situations

Water Sommelier Pairing Suggestions

According to a new piece in the The Los Angeles Times, sommeliers who create specially curated, super expensive water menus are becoming more and more common at high-end restaurants. Water sommelier Martin Riese explains why:

“When you have good food, good wine and good spirits, you don’t want to contaminate that with [sic] water … All waters have unique tastes, and a lot of Americans think water is just water, but I completely don’t believe in that.Water has so many interesting nuances.”

I’ve been saying this since I was eight and my father would roll his eyes and tell me that I was a “snob.” I am not a snob; Arizona’s tap water (where I grew up) smelled and tasted like chlorine and made me feel sick. Apparently, I was born with a highly sensitive palate that could detect the thickness, minerality, sweetness and bitterness of various water varietals. Keep reading »

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

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 reluctant to purchase them for me at first, but they were beyond grateful when years later we were alerted to a catastrophic basement flood during a power outage by one of the malfunctions-when-wet animatronic creatures. Furbies may no longer be of the zeitgeist, now replaced by, like, an iPhone app or something, but in the hands of Swedish artist and big time Furby enthusiast William Källback Winter, they’ve been reborn as some of our most recognizable contemporary pop stars. Check out a few more after the jump, and more of Winter’s work at the source! [Furby Living via Huffington Post] Keep reading »

This Drunken Ronald McDonald Clip Was Too Much For Adult Swim

This Drunken Ronald McDonald Clip Was Too Much For Adult Swim
The Boss Is Here!

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 things, apparently, is this clip from “The Eric André Show” of Andre as a drunken Ronald McDonald hitting up his local McDonald’s, which the network refused to air. Granted, the rejection was based not off content or legality but concern for the future of Cartoon Network’s ad sales (they have a deal with the fast food chain for Happy Meal toys) should the footage be okayed. Andre appeared on “Conan” last night and brought the scrapped video along with him, which of course Conan had no problem airing himself … [via Huffington Post]

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

Brides Throwing 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 does serve as additional evidence in the case for Photoshopping a cat into every picture ever. So much better! [Brides Throwing Cats]

Little Boy Shares Adorable Inner Monologue While Pooping

Toilet Wisdom
Little Boy Shares Adorable Inner Monologue While Pooping
He ate too much and doesn't know why...

Ugh! We we’ve all been there: eaten too much and didn’t know why. Found ourselves on the porcelain throne, regretting it. This little boy is learning the hard truth that when you eat too many  apples, poutine, cheesestring, pickle chips, peanut butter and raisins, chocolate thingies, more chocolate thingies and gummies, that your poo might overflow the toilet. This is a good lesson to learn at such a young age. [Gawker]

Groupons I would actually use

I used to love Groupon, but lately the offers showing up in my inbox are getting more and more tragic. Five dollars for $15 worth of tempura at the sushi buffet a few suburbs over? No thanks. Half-priced Botox at a “salon” in a converted warehouse? I’ll pass. But all these epic Groupon fails did get me thinking about the kinds of Groupons I would actually be eager to use. Most of them are of the fantasy variety, but hey, a girl can dream. Here are 15 imaginary Groupon deals I would redeem in a hot minute: Keep reading »

Watch This: A Glorious Mashup Of Ripped Off Songs

Ripped Off Songs Mashup
Can You Tell The Difference Between These Tunes?

Katy Perry might have been the latest musician to, umm, borrow a melody from another song, but she’s far from the first. Comedian/musician Chad Neidt made this delightfully catchy one-minute mashup of 12 other songs that were pretty much note-for-note copies of the originals. From Sublime to One Direction to Nickelback (the only band in the bunch that ripped off a song from itself), this video has all the answers to the question, “Haven’t I heard this song before?” [YouTube via Laughing Squid]

Rebecca Romijn Introduces The Hand Bra For Breast Cancer Awareness

Rebecca Romijn introduces the Hand Bra for BCA
The Hand Bra!

Ah, the Hand Bra: I know it well. Granted, I am more familiar with the Rachel Krause Hand Bra than the Rebecca Romijn Hand Bra, but a Hand Bra is a Hand Bra and they all work just the same. Except Rebecca’s version helps to call attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, while mine functions for more selfish reasons, such as not losing an eye while running for the subway. [Gossip Cop]

Watch This: Stay-At-Home Mom Posts Her Own “I Quit” Video

Stay At Home Mom I Quit Video
"This is to let my family know ... I QUIT!"

We all know now that the epic “I quit!” video that went viral was probaaaaably a PR stunt, but that didn’t stop Brenna Jennings, a stay-at-home mom fed up with doing so much thankless work, make her own version. This tired mom is done making beds and cleaning the “petri dish” her family calls a bathroom. She quits! She’s gone! Just kidding. She’s running out to get milk and will be right back. Sigh. A mother’s work is never done. [YouTube via Neatorama]
