    Note: Click HERE for the probably NSFW shot of the part of a wiener that connects to the body. What is that even called, the trunk? Apparently a British man trying to sell his 1996 MG MFT on eBay accidentally uploaded a risque picture meant for his Craigslist man-seeking-anyt... / Continue →

    How many times have you left the bar at the end of the night and wanted nothing more than a big ol' piece of meat in your mouth? Twenty? Forty? A hundred? I'm not gonna lie, you sound promiscuous. But now a butcher in Spain has stocked a sausage-packed vending machine outs... / Continue →

    Apparently battery-powered illuminated liquor bottles are becoming all the rage. They're supposed to grab your attention when you're trying to decide what to order at the bar. Yeah, TOO BAD I ALREADY KNOW WHAT I WANT (one of everything -- and keep the cherries coming). Balla... / Continue →

    This is Vince "Punchahook" Shlomi selling ShamWows in Spanish. And yes, it's every bit as "I want to beat him till he bleeds" as it sounds. Even worse. I actually put my monitor in a choke-hold just watching it. Now tap out or you're dead. I mean it! Vince Tries To Sell ... / Continue →

    This is a cute commercial for European-based electronics manufacturer, Loewe. The ad was designed to highlight their "extremely realistic sound", but to me it highlighted how cool a human remote-controller would be. Sorry, what was that? Haha -- you've been muted, son! Yout... / Continue →
