It’s always nice to get a Christmas card, but it’s even better when you get a geeky card that also makes you laugh. While I can’t help you get better Christmas cards, I can tell you where to find better ones and I suggest heading to Castle McQuade’s Etsy shop, where you can get delightfully geeky cards such as these.

So checkout the cards over on Etsy

By now, you probably know way more than you want to know about our current presidential candidates. You probably even know a little bit about some of our more recent presidents and the more famous historical presidents, but do you know much about Rutherford B. Hayes or Martin Van Buren? Chances are you don’t know much about either of them, but you’re in luck because this great Today I Found Out video can offer you a little more information on each of our 44 presidents.

Nature photography is incredible and inspirational -except when it isn’t and when it comes to the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, it most certainly isn’t.

1477126010

Their photo contest is entirely too hilarious and you won’t want to miss the contest’s 2016 finalists, which include the silly shots featured here and many, many more.

de VAULX Nicolas draguignan Phone: 0952115610 Email: nico.san@free.fr Title: Damn ! Description: A pelican was flying over our small boat. The fisherman was playing with him and threw him a fish. The pelican caught it but he lost it a few minutes later. I like his sheepish look on his face… Animal: Pelecanus crispus Location of shot: Kerkini Lake ( Greece )

Celebrate the derp and enjoy the fact that it’s only natural to occasionally take really bad pictures.

Do You Believe You Can Fly?

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

il_570xn-1010452323_883e

I used to be able to lucid dream and when things started to get scary, I would just fly away. Sometimes I’d just decide to soar so I could get to a new adventure. Unfortunately, real life isn’t so simple, but we can still fantasize thanks to a few clever Etsy sellers.

we-create-a-unique-wings-that-actually-is-a-backpack-1

Whether you want to be a butterfly or an angel, Etsy is a good place to let your inner desires fly. Unfortunately, seller OrangCatMinsk is currently out of their beautiful angel backpacks, but you can always bookmark the shop and eventually you may be able to get one of your own. You can still  get your hands on a magical butterfly scarf thanks to CostureroReal though and while you might not be able to soar in reality or in a dreamscape, you can fly away in your fantasies and that’s something beautiful.



Hot New Internet Trend In China – The Underboob Pen Challenge

Saturday, July 30th, 2016

1454599354-0

It seems the Chinese want to give the Japanese a run for their money when it comes to having a strange, and somewhat pervy, sense of humor, and thanks to the internet they get to share their strange obsessions with the world.

Their most recent viral pic sensation- boob pen. That’s right, stick a pen or pencil under your boob, snap a (generally not nude) pic and share it on social media.

1454599354-1

What anyone but the pen gets out of this is beyond me, but the fun loving yet fickle nature of the internet almost guarantees this will become a thing across the globe for an internet minute.

Luckily, some women have already seen through this cup size shaming posing as a social media trend and have begun tucking pens and pencils under far less racy folds of skin.

1454599354-2

And don’t forget about the fellas who came to show the world that boob pen isn’t just for the ladies. Why, that man has magical mammaries!

The Addams’ Family Bird

He’s creepy and he’s kooky. He’s all together spooky -the Addams birdie. You gotta love how he replicates the clicks with the head. It seems like he really is a member of the Addams’ clan.
