Police Instagram account is unending source of hilarity

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in Cool Websites on Thursday 25 September 2014

What are the police like in your country? Testosterone-fuelled gun-wielding maniacs, corrupt as the day is long or apathetic cynics with little to do other than stop you riding your bike on the sidewalk? If none of these stereotypes fit then lucky you, but even so it’s unlikely you as much of a fun-loving police force as the residents of Reykjavik.

By Inigo del Castillo in Cool Websites on Thursday 18 September 2014

Trust me, no matter how silly this game is, no one can deny the challenge of searching for a hidden dildo. ‘Where’s Waldo’, the famous children’s book wherein you have to locate the hidden hipster, now has an adult version, ‘Subtle Dildo’. Or as we like to call it: ‘Where’s Dildo’.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Cool Websites on Friday 5 September 2014

Tindafella is what we’ve all been waiting for. Making fun of Tinder profiles that try a little too hard for attention, Jarrod Allen decided to start replicating profile pictures on the app. And he does it with such style and finesse, it’s hard to look away from these cheeky pics.

This Yelp reviewer can’t help putting his wife’s cleavage in every food shot he posts

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in Cool Websites on Tuesday 19 August 2014

Now this is one cleavage, sorry, clever guy. Yelp reviewer, ‘Charley C’, has been reviewing a number of restaurants with descriptions including ‘tender’, ‘firm’, and ‘DDD: Doubly Delicious Dinner’. But we’re not sure the reviews are genuinely about the food, and not really about something a little more, er, risque. Charley has reviewed four restaurants on Yelp, and offered up 34 tips. And, oh yeah, he has lots and lots of pics of what he describes as ‘Double Deeeelicious’ food.

This is what The Onion think of Facebook’s decision to make satirical posts on the site more ‘obvious’ (spoiler alert: they win!)

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Cool Websites on Tuesday 19 August 2014

The Onion strikes back. The brilliant satirical website have (apparently) confused Facebook users so much with their close to the bone ‘news’ posts that the social media giant have now decided to identify all satirical updates with a clear and obvious tag to try and help people who can’t understand what’s happening.

Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda cover shot has turned up at the most unexpected places

Kenny Ong Contributor

By Kenny Ong in Cool Websites on Friday 8 August 2014

For her latest single, Anaconda, American rapper, singer, songwriter and actress is photographed in a position that makes me imagine this is how she would go about catching one. Apparently, I am not the only one with an overly active imagination. If you care to visit The Manhood tumblr, you’ll see that this vision of her has been photoshopped into just about anything and everything.

There’s a website dedicated to the best (or worst) Dad Jokes in existence

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Cool Websites on Wednesday 6 August 2014

There’s no doubt about it–dads make the worst jokes. It’s something that must magically happen as your first child is born. Suddenly all that first-class humour goes out the window and you’re stuck making terribly awkward, corny jokes for the rest of your life. If you’ve ever been a victim of corny dad jokes, you’ll […]

Hilarious redesigns of the new Airbnb logo (not all of which are genitals)

Joe Frost Contributor

By Joe Frost in Cool Websites on Tuesday 22 July 2014

Last week, Airbnb revealed a new logo which company CEO Brian Chesky said ‘changes the whole identity and expression of the company’. And while most companies are very strict with the use of their logo, Airbnb wants you to customise it, Chesky saying ‘Most brands would send you a cease-and-desist letter if you tried to recreate their brand, we wanted to do the opposite’.

The TSA’s Instagram Account Documents All The Juicy Items Confiscated At Security

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Cool Websites on Monday 21 July 2014

America’s TSA never fails to entertain us with their bizarre practices. And they’re entertaining us all over again with their Instagram account (yeah, they actually have one). Being the social media guru for the TSA must be a fun and yet weird position. Fun because you get to immerse yourself in social media all day, but weird with the stuff you have to post.

Guys with Zooey Deschanel eyes give us the creeps

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Cool Websites on Monday 16 June 2014

Zooey Deschanel? Such cute eyes. Guys with Zooey Deschanel’s eyes? Just so… creepy. Thanks to Guys With Zooeyes, we are now rendered helpless to unsee even Obama without Zooey’s perky blue eyes. Philadelphia-based Melissa Ivone started the project after some joking around at work. You can consider us traumatized.

Snarky Instagram account is calling out celebs using food as props

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Cool Websites on Wednesday 4 June 2014

There’s an Instagram account out on the web that’s called You did not eat that, and it’s exactly as it sounds. It’s a bunch of images – usually of very thin models and celebrities – tricking us into believing they’ve actually taken a bite out of something, or are just about to. For instance, the account shares a photo of Miss Jetsetter (a blogger) dangling a burger ever so close to her mouth.

Donate your frequent flyer points, fly a stranger out to meet a terminally ill loved one

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Cool Websites on Thursday 15 May 2014

The Extra Mile’s mission it simple. They collect frequent flyer miles from people who don’t need them, and then give them to those who ‘desperately do, to visit terminally ill loved ones with cancer’. This brand new non-profit was founded by Matt Dimmer, whose father Peter died of pancreatic cancer. While Dimmer and his wife had the luxury of visiting Peter during his illness, many aren’t.

Find out how long a TV series will take you to watch from start to finish

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Cool Websites on Monday 5 May 2014

I’m not ashamed to admit that I spent an entire weekend binging on the two seasons of House of Cards in March. I’m also not ashamed that back in January I started watching Breaking Bad for the first time and finished all five seasons in a couple of weeks. I would’ve finished both TV shows […]

By Rachel Oakley in Cool Websites on Saturday 3 May 2014

Boring day at work? Need a lift-me-up? Love cows? Then Find the Invisible Cow is for you! I happened upon this crazy (yet hilarious) game while bored and surfing the net. I wasn’t ready for all the awesomeness, though. Start the game and listen to ‘cow, cow, cow, cow, cow, COW, COW, COW, COW’ until […]
