Babes in Manland

Objectifying women is bad.  Objectifying men?  Well, a little payback can’t hurt.  Babe City Babes is a site devoted to photos of hot guys just being… well… hot.  I mean really, how can you resist a site with a naked Burt Reynolds sprawled out on a bear skin rug tiled across the background? And really, it’s all in the name of research:

The man babe is a very complex and fascinating creature. From ongoing and intensive ethnographic research on the species, we present to you a compendium of our detailed studies and stunning findings.

Every Family’s Got One

Hairy Uncle Louie, bug-eyed Aunt Sally, buck-toothed cousin Murray.  Ok, so maybe they’re not blue and 7 feet tall, but you know you’ve got at least one black sheep in the family (or maybe it’s you).  Well, artist Relleno De Mono takes vintage family photos and adds those weird relatives wherever they’re missing.

New Math = Math – Numbers + Funny

Most of the math I’ve learned is buried deep in my brain collecting dust.  Luckily, Craig Damrauer’s New Math doesn’t require much more than a 5th grader’s understanding of the subject.  And as long as you’re literate and have a sense of humor, you’ll have no problem.  The equation above is just one of many on the site and a new one is added every Monday.

All Those Mushrooms Finally Make Sense

I don’t know what the kids are listening to these days, but if they’re listening to this, I doubt they can appreciate the awesomeness of this video.  I mean, they’re probably laughing at the pixeliness (yes, I probably invented this word) and wondering who the hell Link and Megaman are (they’ve GOT to know Mario and Princess Toadstool, right?).

Four-Year-Olds are Assholes

Generally, an artist’s toughest critic is him- or herself.  Not so for Bill Zeman.  His four-year-old is consistently ripping him a new one.  She tells him what to draw, he draws it, she tears it to shreds (or more often, erases it completely).  And Zeman posts it all on his blog, Tiny Art Director. My favorite critique has got to be

You just don’t draw so well. Why do you think that is? It turns out that I’m the good draw-er. It turns out that you’re the art director.

Or maybe “It’s dumb Daddy. You should erase it. Grow up Daddy.” Continue reading

Was He Arouuuuuuuused?

Wedding bands are overrated.  Considering the rates of infidelity and divorce, I think this Truth Wristband is a much better investment.  Nothing says “I love you” more than “I don’t trust you”. Continue reading

A Little Pussy Never Hurt Anyone… Except Kenley’s Fiance

Kenley, Kenley, Kenley.  We (and by we I mean Project Runway fans) all knew you were a little crazy, but really, who throws a cat anymore?

Kenley Collins threw a cat at her fiance.  A cat!  Mind you, it wasn’t even in the midst of an argument where she just grabbed whatever was closest.  The dude was sleeping.  That’s just bad form really.

And the assault didn’t end there.  She followed up with a laptop, some apples, and finally water before he managed to crawl to the phone to call the cops.  And yes, she was arrested.  So the city’s safe from flying cats and an overabundance of 40’s dresses.  At least for the time being.
