    This is a video of Galactic Empire forces taking over the Frankfurt Airport in Germany. No word if Germany forged an alliance with the Empire or if the airport was taken by force. I suspect the worse. "Which is?" Germany has always been a secret part of the Galactic Empire.... / Continue →

    This is the cake that Chris Holmes used to resign from his job at the Stansted Airport so he could pursue his true passion -- making cakes. He has really nice penmanship (technically icing-bagmanship). Unlike Chris, when I quit a job I don't give my coworkers some tasty treat... / Continue →

    Sweet guts, bro. A drunk Norwegian tourist visiting Italy recently took a nap on a baggage conveyor belt and got x-rayed after trying to check in for a flight but finding no attendant at the desk. Because that's what you do when you're drunk and things don't go your way -- yo... / Continue →

    Just saying, if that were me I would have had to censor the whole picture. "Because you're so ugly?" It's so bad I even make my surroundings look unbearable. One time I went to an auction and a Picasso sold for $1. So this dork Jonah Falcon who runs around bragging that he'... / Continue →
