The Oreo Separator Machine Will Either Make You Cheer Or Cry

Motivated by his extreme dislike of the center of an Oreo cookie, physicist David Neevel built  a robot-like machine that separates the cookie from the creme. Neevel slaved away for .04 years on The Oreo Separator Machine (OSM), which uses scraps of wood, metal and floss to rid the chocolatey cookie halves of their creme.

Anne Hathaway has been everywhere lately, breathlessly accepting All The Awards for her portrayal of doomed prostitute Fantine in “Les Miserables.” Would it really be that hard to believe that Anne would leverage all this musical attention into a gig singing Disney show theme songs, in character?

TV Anchor Gives Sex Tips Disguised As News (NSFWish)

As far as I’m concerned, Global Saskatoon morning news anchor Lisa Dutton brings us double entendre comedy at its finest. Her “tip” about how to soothe a teething child’s itchy gums with the rubber end of a vibrating toothbrush turned into an entirely different kind of tip. It was far more than “good banter.” I…

Jorge Perez Gonzalez Is A Professional Butt Slapper

Now, this is how you slap an ass. Percussionist Jorge Perez Gonzalez of the band Patex makes beautiful music with female bottoms. Maybe I should be offended, but I find myself rather mesmerized by his skill. And his butt lotioning technique. I prefer Buttcussion to Gangam Style or the Harlem Shake or whatever other dance…

Be My Boyfriend: Guy Who Plays The Alcordion

Dear Ivan Zamotaev,
I’ve always had a thing for men who play accordions, so when you walked onto the “Russia’s Got Talent” stage and debuted your talent–playing a fascinating instrument called an “alcordion”–I was immediately intrigued. And then I found out that the “alcordion” is just an alcoholic accordion, with a bottle of vodka and a…

Watch This: Men Find Out What Childbirth Feels Like

In the latest experiment for their show “Guinea Pigs,” Dutch TV hosts Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno were hooked up to an electro-simulator that mimics the painful contractions women experience during labor. The video is in Dutch, but around the 7-minute mark, it becomes very clear that agony is a universal language. Apparently the guys underwent two…

This Supercut Of “Sex And The City” Segues Will Make You Cringe

I seriously used to think “Sex and the City” was the height of snappy, clever writing. When I watch it now, it sounds like a dramatic reading of one of those Washington Post reader contests for “World’s Worst Pun.” Want proof? Check out this brilliant supercut of the painful, cringe-inducing segues Carrie used throughout the…

World, This Is Your New Fish-Themed “Gangam Style” Phenomenon

In 2005, I went to grad school in England, and around then, the biggest song on the UK charts was the Crazy Frog ringtone. Not even kidding — a fucking terrible ringtone was the number one track in the country. So it’s no surprise that a song by a British man who refers to himself…

It’s Decembeaver, Grow Your Bush For A Cause

You might have felt excluded by Movember (or not). Well, that’s over now. Goodbye Movember, hello Decembeaver, a month when women can stop shaving their muffs for cancer. Some comedians got together and started their own campaign to go all “Bob Ross” down there. And while it appears to be a Movember spoof (“If you…

This Video Of Women Falling In Train Stations Can’t Be Real

As a person who falls down regularly in public, I feel like this video of embarrassing slip-ups in railway stations PSA just can’t be real. I’m sorry, but gravity would not allow a woman to fall upwards on an escalator “reverse plank” style. I know from experience. The others might be real, but are caused…

Watch This: An Instagram Parody, Nickelbacked For Your Pleasure

As an unabashed fan of both Instagram and Nickelback, I must admit this parody video stung a little, but it also made me laugh nonstop for three minutes. Also, I was simultaneously delighted and horrified when Julie came up with the phrase “Nickelbacked for your pleasure,” but in this case, it’s really a perfect description.
