Though it sounds vaguely morbid: why dig a hole, if not to bury a dead body? In any case, the Japanese seem to take it very seriously, with 271 teams taking part in the 14th edition last year to win the coveted prize of a… gold shovel. Uh huh.

This guy is advertising to walk your dog, if you’d let him. He starts off by asking if you’re too busy to walk your dog in the most creative ways like, ‘Are you going out of town with your post-divorce trophy-girlfriend to visit your slave ship collection in the Barbados?’

Stay warm and manly on the slopes with these bearded ski masks

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Products on Friday 23 January 2015

I don’t always grow a long, silky smooth beard, but when I do… Ok, I don’t. I can never grow a beard and enjoy its warm, comforting thickness hugging my cheeks.
