The Worst U.S. Cities To Live In During A Zombie Apocalypse

Should there ever be a zombie apocalypse, I’m getting the hell out of New York City. Real-estate website Trulia has just saved us all some trouble by letting us know which U.S. Cities would be the worst places to seek refuge should the dead rise and revolt, and the city that topped the chart may surprise you! Survivability was calculated using the these criteria: highest walk score, lowest hardware store density, highest hospital density, and most congestion. Basically, hospitals will have lots of weak victims, hardware stores have lots of zombie-killing tools, the more people who live in an area the harder it is to leave, and if you’re on any kind of island, you’re screwed. Check out the map after the jump to see if you should pack up and peace out before the zombies come.  Keep reading »

Little Boy Gets Stuck In Toy Machine, Has Worse Day Than You

Having a rough week? At least you’re not little Colin Lambert. The 18-month-0ld waited until his grandma turned away for just an instant to climb his way into a claw toy machine, only to find himself thoroughly stuck. When he limbed into the machine’s chute, his grandmother tried to grab him by his feet and pull him back out, but he kicked her hands away and hauled himself over the machine’s glass partition to play with the toys inside. It was all fun and games until he realized he couldn’t get out on his own. Firefighters were called in to rescue Colin, which only took them a few minutes. Instead of scolding, they rewarded him for his antics by letting him pick out a free toy from the machine. Lesson learned! [People; WBIR] [Image via Facebook/WBIR News]

Christmas Tree Butt Plug In Paris Deflated By Vandals

See that thing above? Is it A) art, B) a Christmas tree, C) an enormous butt plug or D) all of the above? The answer is D! American Artist Paul McCarthy erected, heh, the sculpture, called “Tree,” in Paris last week, noting that he got the idea for it after noticing that a butt plug sort of looks like a Christmas tree. Okay then. Sadly, this m-ASS-terful work was not appreciated by all, and a rogue group of individuals who clearly hate anal sex decided to take matters into their own hands, The police told the BBC, “An unidentified group of people cut the cables which were holding the artwork, which caused it to collapse.” See the butt plug, I mean “Tree,” in its sad deflated form, after the jump.

Couple Has Sex In The Ocean, Gets Stuck Together “Due To Suction”

I’ve never really understood the appeal or the logistics of having sex in the ocean, but now I genuinely have a reason to fear doing the deed in the sea: a couple having sex off the coast of Italy reportedly became stuck together because of SUCTION (!!!) and actually had to go to the emergency room to be separated. WHAT?! Keep reading »

‘Crabzilla’ Or ‘Crapzilla’ — You Decide

Crabzilla Or Crapzilla- You Decide

Nowadays, it seems the world is just littered with crises. But one thing we don’t have to worry about is “Crabzilla.”

A photo depicting what appears to be a 50-foot crab hanging out near a wharf in Kent, England, started making the rounds on the Internet earlier this week. The photo was featured on a local curiosities site called Weird Whitstable, and eventually dubbed “Crabzilla.” Read more on Huffington Post Weird News…

This Creepy Hugging Chair Will Distract You From Your Loneliness

Hug Pillow

The “tranquility chair,” aka the furniture that hugs you back, has a giant human doll attached to its back with outstretched arms ready to be wrapped around your weary self. Japanese company UniCare is selling the chair for $419 (faux human contact isn’t cheap!) at the International Home Care and Rehabilitation Exhibition in Tokyo. Japan’s elderly population is set to double in roughly the next decade and this chair was designed with them in mind, but obviously feeling forever alone applies to every age group, so Unicare has got themselves a pretty big market. It’s worth considering that if I owned this I’d know that no matter what happened during the day, at least my creepy-ass smiling chair would always be happy to see me when I got home.
