I have dire news. According to the Britain Kennel Club’s breeder’s association, corgis may soon become an endangered dog breed. So not okay. What would the world do without our most beloved smiley little munchkin dogs? I don’t think Tumblr could continue to function without corgi GIFs. They’re the Queen of England’s favorite breed, after all! This year, only 241 Pembroke Welsh Corgis were registered in Britain, short of the 300 needed to keep them from being considered vulnerable. Many breeders abandoned their corgi pursuits after the UK banned the practice of cutting off part of their tails in 2007. Corgi lovers everywhere are in panic mode, and People Pets has even supplied a corgi “a-paw-calypse” plan. Internet cat video indulgences just wouldn’t be the same without some adorable YouTube footage of corgi antics to balance out the fun. Someone, please help! After the jump, 15 corgi GIFs that will remind you why these precious pooches need saving. [People; AFP] [Image of corgi via Shutterstock] Keep reading »

How’s this for horrifying? A Baltimore gynecologist was found to have taken thousands of secret photos between his patients’ legs during exams over the course of his career. Dr. Nikita Levy, who practiced at Johns Hopkins Hospital, committed suicide earlier this year as investigators started to close in on him. Now, thousands of his ex-patients are filing a class action lawsuit against his estate. Keep reading »
Today in people who deserved to be publicly shamed: may I call your attention Jian Feng, the pretty-on-the-outside-awful-on-the-inside man in the center of the photo, who decided to sue his wife for giving birth to three “incredibly ugly children.” At first, Jian Fend, the beautiful, accused his wife of being unfaithful because how could someone like him father loathsome creatures like that? But a DNA test revealed that he was, in fact, the father of those little toads. That’s when his wife dropped the bomb that her face was not actually her face — she had received more than $100,000 worth of cosmetic surgery done in South Korea before they met. Upon that admission, Feng proceeded to sue his “Swan” on the grounds of false pretenses. And the judge agreed with him, forcing the wife to pay up to the tune of $120,000. Keep reading »
Here’s Why You Should Never Be A Stock Photo Model: You May End Up As The Face Of Obese, Geriatric Orgies
Veteran stock photo model, Samantha Ovens, had an incredibly good attitude when she discovered that a photo she had taken for a “colds and illnesses” photo shoot, was used for The Guardian headline ” I fantasize about group sex with old, obsese men.” To add to the irony, the 36-year-old, who specializes in portraying “yummy mummies” in various emotional states and situations for the world’s stock photo purposes, just so happens to be gay in real life. So yeah, she’s never even remotely fantasized about group sex with old, fat men. Keep reading »
Ever wished you could live like a Jetson? Would traveling by pod car on your daily commute to work do the trick? In 2015, 100 self-driving pod cars will arrive in the English town of Milton Keynes, shuttling two passengers at a time between the town’s train station, shopping center, and offices. The pods will move at just 12 mph and will get their own special lanes. After the first 100 are broken in, many more will hit the streets in 2017 with a cost of £2 per trip. Naturally, passengers will be able to summon a ride via a phone app. What I’d like to know is whether they’ll be called pods or cars in day-to-day conversation. Will “join me for a romantic pod ride down this country road” become the pickup line of the future? Keep reading »
Consi Taylor was half done eating the banana when she noticed white spots on the peel. Upon closer inspection, she realized those spots were moving, and when dozens of the spots jumped off the banana and began quickly scattering around her family’s home, she realized they were SPIDERS. As if this fruit horror story wasn’t horrible enough, they weren’t just any spiders, either — they were Brazilian wandering spiders, AKA the deadliest spider in the world, with venom powerful enough to kill a grown man in about an hour.

Let’s be honest, being on both sides of the bridesmaid game can be super annoying. It’s hard to say no when a friend asks you to be part of her special day and before you’ve even marked the date on your calendar, you’ve been asked to spend $1,000 on an awful burgundy dress and gold heels that you’ll never, ever wear again. On the bride’s side, I can only imagine that it must be irritating to have bitches whining and moaning about having to get their nails polished Ballet Slipper pink and the other, long list of simple list of requirements you’ve given them.
Fuck it all! Simplify everyone’s life by getting a bridesmaid who doesn’t need dress, who never talks back and who doesn’t need to be taught how to keep pace when walking down the aisle.
Bride Alex Wells got it right when she asked her thoroughbred horse Toffee to be her bridesmaid. Keep reading »

It’s Halloween. Most of us are sitting at our desks in our Sexy Pizza costumes, pounding Candy Corn and drinking as much spiked apple cider as we can without getting wasted. Perfectly normal behavior for October 31st. Sadly, this holiday seems to bring out the bat shit insane in so many. I’ve rounded up some of the dumbest/weirdest/most bizarre things that have gone on so far this Halloween. And the day is still young… Keep reading »
