    This is a series of 25 NHL hockey team logos that have been Simpsonized by Instagram user ak47_studios. Which is your favorite? My bet is one of the teams that he hasn't done yet, because you're just one of those kind of people. Always a negative, half-glass-empty kind of mo... / Continue →

    This is a video from Mr. Lamont (who doesn't want his full name published for fear of a Sasquatch reading this and coming to kick his ass) of what he believes to be a bipedal Sasquatch creature traversing the snow-covered mountains of Squamish, British Columbia. And is it a co... / Continue →

    This is a highlight real of The Empire Strips Back, a burlesque show inspired by the second Star Wars movie and performed by the folks of Geekenders. It was really something. I have only been to one burlesque show in my life, and from what I could gather it was titty-tassle th... / Continue →

    This is the Canadian advice column that somebody wrote into pretending to be Skyler White from Breaking Bad. Clearly Miss Lonelyhearts isn't familiar with the show and offered her real advice. Aaaaand that's when I got sad. Still, Skyler should have taken it. Thanks to Al... / Continue →

    If a pizza and spaghetti had sex their baby would be lasagna. What? It's important to think about these things. If some dude and spaghetti had sex, the spaghetti would not get pregnant, and hopefully the pervert burns his pecker in the marinara and learns his lesson (go for ... / Continue →

    This is one of the crack pipe vending machines installed by the non-profit Portland Hotel Society's Drug Users Resource Center in Vancouver, Canada. The hope is that the 25¢ Pyrex crack pipes will help prevent the spread of disease among drug users. I don't care if caring mea... / Continue →

    This is what it looks like to shoot boiling water out of a Super Soaker in -41°C (-41.8°F) temperatures. I'm sorry, but that is just too f***ing cold. Any of you live in places that get that cold? Here's what I want you to do. Look outside. What do you see? "Snow." Anyth... / Continue →

    In news that sounds suspiciously like a shitty MacGyver episode, researchers at York University in Toronto, Canada, were able to send the text message 'O CANADA' twelve feet across the room using vodka. It marks the first time 'O CANADA' has ever been sent as a text message. ... / Continue →

    Meet Canadian man Gilles Cyr. Gilles was attacked by a bear on his property in Grand Falls, New Brunswick last week while daydreaming about hockey and flannel. So what did he do? What absolutely nobody else in their right mind would -- grabbed that f***er's tongue and yanked... / Continue →

    This is the beer fridge rolled out in Europe by the Molson Coors Brewing Company as part of a campaign to sell more Canadian Molson beer in Europe. Why would Europe want some mass produced Canadian beer when they have so much good stuff themselves? They probably don't. But h... / Continue →

    This is a map created by Josh Stevens displaying the 3,313 North American Bigfoot sightings collected by the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization in the last 92-years. It's crazy to think that behind every single one of those little purplish dots there's either a liar, crazy... / Continue →

    EXP Restaurant + Bar is a Vancouver restaurant and bar (not just a tricky name) with a video game theme, including the food and drink menus. I don't know about you, but I would eat and drink there, and, knowing me, probably try to make small talk with the guy pissing at the ur... / Continue →

    In financial news, Canada has just unveiled a new $5 bill that has an astronaut and what appears to be a space-based death ray on the front. The whole thing looks pretty fake to me. If I was working retail and somebody handed me that I would probably bang my head on the regis... / Continue →

    I meant to post this video when it came out late last week but I have a little something my doctor likes to call "a really serious issue" and I forget things sometimes. So I'm sorry if you've already seen this, but not too much because you're usually a jerk to me anyways. Thi... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version of the coin HERE. In wonderful news for a humpday, the Canadian Mint is releasing the second in its series of 'Prehistoric Creature' glow in the dark dinosaur coins, this time with the Quetzalcoatlus. For the record, the Quetzalcoatlus wasn't actually a d... / Continue →

    Because pennies are virtually worthless except for picking up tails-side-up to tempt fate, Canada has decided to retire its penny. In what is sure to be a significant victory for pro-nickel lobbyists, all cash transactions will now be rounded up or down to the nearest five cen... / Continue →
