    This is a naked lady bodypainted and posed to look like a rainbow macaw by artist Johannes Stoetter. Can you see her? I have never been so attracted to a bird before. That's not true. You know those dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets? Those things are amazing. I have a separa... / Continue →

    This is a series of Batman villains imagined as cartoon sharks by artist Jeff Victor. Why? No clue. I already told you -- I'm tired of asking questions. Some people just get these ideas in their heads and run with them. Me? I only run with scissors. Jk jk, that's dangero... / Continue →

    Sure to be all the rage in the goth community (which I am a huge proponent of), a group of cat breeders have developed Lykio Cats, a breed that stems from a genetic mutation in a domestic shorthair cat that prevents it from growing a full coat of fur (including on its face), gi... / Continue →

    A new species of sea slug was discovered of the coast of Brazil by Federal University of Ceará Tropical Marine master's student Felipe de Vasconcelos Silva and named Tritonia khaleesi in honor of Game of Throne khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen's braided hair. That's cool, sometimes... / Continue →

    Because Mother Nature clearly has way too much time on her hands, this is a species of fruit fly that's evolved realistic looking pictures of jumping spiders on its wings. Impressive, but I'd still like to see a pair of those naked lady trucker mudflaps. The idea of the ant... / Continue →

    This is the Magnolia tree that was transformed into a giant squid by sisters Jill Watt and Lorna using over four miles of yarn. Wait -- do trees even like playing dress up? Did Jill and Lorna at least ask it first? Because the last humanity needs right now is a battle with t... / Continue →

    This is the $4 Jawa sandcrawler soap made and sold by Geeksoap. Each 2.5oz crawler is made with 100% all natural and vegan ingredients and smells like the "sunny scent of endless Tatooine sand dunes." Admittedly, a handful of these would look great on the counter of my beach-... / Continue →

    These are the crabs arranged to look like a centipede by some unknown dining establishment in the world. I'm guessing somewhere in Japan. Would you eat it? Of course you would, they're just crabs. I would, but I'd have to close my eyes when it came and have a friend put all... / Continue →

    These are the skull shaped pancake molds sold by Williams-Sonoma. You get two forward-facing skulls and one profile. Unfortunately, it looks like they're either not for sale yet or they used to be but aren't anymore. That sucks if you really wanted them. Of course you could... / Continue →

    This is a trio of sea sponges that have cleverly grown themselves together to look like Cookie Monster. *whispering* Okay I was just informed that apparently they didn't do it on purpose. Or did they? Everybody knows the ocean is a huge fan of Sesame Street. Me: Back me ... / Continue →

    This is the $70 ThinkGeek Travel Boy Carry On Luggage. It's called the Travel Boy instead of Game Boy because why pay for licensing rights if you don't have to? That's like throwing money away. Not eating your whole meal at a restaurant is also like throwing money away, unle... / Continue →

    Go look at yourself in the mirror. What do you see? A giant Doctor Who fan who also plays the ukulele? Congratulations, you're one of a kind. Just kidding, there are probably four of you, but you're still way more special than anybody has ever thought I was. You know those... / Continue →

    I am alive and managed to keep my arm but I am on drugs and they make it hard to write to the point where most of the time I'm just staring at the pores on the back of my hands, so bear with me. This is the $100 Sharkini, a bathing suit that makes it look like you're being att... / Continue →

    Because if you ask a cat or child, half the fun of a present is the wrapping or box it comes in, here's some novelty raw steak wrapping paper (currently a Kickstarter). The standard set includes steak and cutting board wrapping paper, while the grade A set includes both of tho... / Continue →

    This is the $1,350 Robugtix T8, a 3-D printed spider with 26 servo motors that enable it to move eerily like a real spider. Personally, I don't have a problem with spiders. I kind of like them. The only problem is, we don't need more of them. The same amount as now or less ... / Continue →

    Because some people are willing to stop at nothing to sneak a couple shots into a concert, SmuggleYourBooze is selling these tampon flasks. They're basically 1-shot vials that you slide into the provided sleeves so they pass as tampons when security is rooting through your pur... / Continue →

    Because 'Why not?' seems to be just as good a reason as any these days, here's the giant yellow banana shaped pool table created by artist Cléon Daniel. I think we can all agree this piece does NOT carry any sort of social or political commentary. Or does it? Underpaid banan... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Stan Lee posing with a bunch of lady cosplayers at the Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con and the shadow of Thor's hammer making it look like he pissed himself. He didn't though, so it's all good. Or -- OR -- is Thor just covering for him? I'm joking, ther... / Continue →
