Just the other day I was struggling with the task of explaining what a meme is to my mom. ‘It’s a little inside joke found on the internet, created for the internet, about the internet. It’s a picture with a funny punchline. It’s a picture of a cat or Ryan Gosling. I don’t know. You’ll know one when you see one’.

It seems the only people embracing Google Glass are white males. So someone started a Tumblr with a steady stream of images of all the nerdy, white men wearing them. As the page itself states, ‘… if Google Glass didn’t exist, all these Silicon Valley guys would be having affairs or buying unsuitable motorbikes’.
Are these even real? This collection of missed connection ads range from bizarre to creepy to threatening. How about the guy who offers ‘CPR a girl till her last breath?’ What does that even mean? Sounds like he might very well help her reach that last breath. These missed connection ads are at once the most disturbing […]
The Aleph is a short story by Jorge Luis Borges that relates the experience of a man suddenly able to see everything in the world all at once. And now, thanks to David Hirmes, that story just got a quirky, modern update. You can read the story translated into modern Twitter slang. Or maybe you’re feeling classy, in […]
Andrew Mason is recording his first album, Hardly Workin’, ‘a seven song album of motivational business music targeted at people newly entering the workforce’. For quite a while, Mason had the job of managing over 12,000 people at Groupon. Most of those people were under 25 and had no clue when it came to basic business […]
It’s everywhere. We’ve all seen it before. It’s absolutely infuriating if we’re being completely honest. That stupid “broken image” icon always pops up when my Internet is too weak to load a full page from Google. Hey, but what if Google helped give the iconic image a more positive connotation? What if it were used everywhere? […]
A collection of shit illustrations. It’s not pretending to be anything it’s not. Simple, graphic and a bit of a laugh. You don’t have to be good at something to be good at something.
Honestly, what were the parents thinking when they paid to have their child’s photo taken with these nightmare bunnies? I understand Easter Bunnies are part of most American families’ tradition for the Easter holiday, but some people just don’t know where to draw the line. Seriously. Find 31 more terrifying photos here. It’s kind of […]
In the 90s, if it said Teenbeat on it, I would buy it (and usually did). So take two members of great 90s Teenbeat bands (Unrest and Blast Off Country Style) and get them covering jingles? I’m listening. After all, what is a jingle if not just a really short pop song? The Bumblebee Tuna […]
What’s the mane feature of a lion? This wacky art project has the king of the jungle styled like a rock star. We think ‘Afro Lion’, by the Japanese artist Mountstar is definitely going to be the look for the runways of the savanna this spring.
This graphic short is the culmination of a 24-hour comic. Which just goes to show that great work can happen in quick time too. A poignant story of a man who is shipwrecked on an island with a gorilla that is fluent in English, Eastern Mountain Gorilla, French, Bonobo, and Crow.
SModcast is in my opinion the funniest podcast download on iTunes. Don’t be put off by the fact that it’s genesis seems to have been that two friends thought it would be a good way to stop the third friend potentially committing suicide. The aforementioned suicidal one is easily one of the funniest human beings […]
If you’re unfamiliar with The Comics Curmudgeon, the gist is that Josh reads the terrible daily strips so we don’t have to. But when he pointed out the ridiculousness of the opening panel to a recent Rex Morgan, M.D. one of his readers really rose to the occasion and created the Rexifier, adding the good […]
Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2012, Ned Beauman’s second book is filthy, funny and endlessly interesting. One of the most exciting young writers out there, his books are a joy to read.
