    This is the Reading Net designed by Spanish creative studio Playoffice. Of course I'm not sure how much credit Playoffice actually deserves. It's not like they invented nets, they just came up with the idea of hanging them in home libraries to give your kids a place to hang o... / Continue →

    Seen here in the process of insulting an old man's choice of koozy, this is BatDad's fourth Vine compilation video. It's fine and all, I'm just starting to wonder when these things are going to end. My guess is never, at least not until the concept has been run into the groun... / Continue →

    This is another compilation of BadDad's Vine videos. Like most sequels, it's nowhere near as good as the first. Still, there were a couple gems in there. Also, anybody know where I can rent one of those carpet cleaners like that kid is riding? A dog puked in my bedroom. "J... / Continue →

    Hospitals: they're terrifying. I can't even remember being in one as a child but probably because I've completely blocked out those memories along with the one of me pooping my pants while jumping on a tractor tire on the playground in kindergarten. Just kidding, that one wil... / Continue →

    Damn dad, calm down -- it's just a minifig. Pleygo is a LEGO rental service that works just like Netflix. You rent a set, and when you return it, they send you the next set on your queue. If you thought it worked like Netflix streaming you are a dummy. They have three plans... / Continue →
