Artist Jose Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros has ONE wicked imagination. In his mind, those squeaky clean Disney characters we all grew up with are actually secret drug users, with a penchant for making it with the same sex. Well, some of them anyway.
We love this video by our friends at College Humor which casts us back to our earliest days of trying to work out where the heck we came from and what it all had to do with birds and bees. Birds and bees, really? It seems that sex education had a long path to follow […]
Our friends at Buzzfeed asked some people recently if they’d get their first ever tattoos on camera and they agreed. The results speak for themselves: much pain, some laughter, and more contorted expressions than we thought the human face was capable of. Yup, the voyeur in us just kicked into overdrive: perhaps it’s a case […]
What’s not to love about this unnamed baby gorilla who arrived into the world last Saturday at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden. The offspring of mother Ndjole, a Western lowland gorilla, and father Togo, a silverback Western lowland gorilla, the poor little thing failed to bond immediately with its mother and so is […]
Oh, boy. Words simply don’t do justice to sheer ridiculousness of this scenario that Youtuber TexasGirly1979 constructed of a cute cat dressed in a shark outfit scooting around the house on a Roomba in front of an equally cute kid who is entirely enthralled by the situation.

20 women re-enact the famous scene from When Harry Met Sally and freak out the unsuspecting diners around them
The reactions of those poor unsuspecting diners around them are priceless! New York-based Improv Everywhere struck in a REAL BIG WAY late last year with this stunt where they discreetly planted 20 women in conversation with their male cohorts in the same Manhattan deli that the original scene was filmed in and let, erm, Mother Nature gradually take its course. Of course!
