This is so stupid and funny, I'm pissed I didn't think of it. To whomever put this together -- kudos good sir (or madam)!
I have altered children's book covers both popular and obscure for humorous effect. Pray I don't alter them any further. Hey, I'm not even Mormon bashing here. Those two were just straight up creepy. I'm not saying this was inspired by Mumford & Sons, but I'm also not denying it. Short pants, even shorter temper. Subtitled: Little Toby and the Reverse Cowboy. (Many thanks to Bob Staake for the inspiration.)
I think this was only included in the super-extended director's cut Laser Disc verison of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Mmmm, powerful and delicious! No wonder Gollum wanted that thing back so badly.
I don't often do political humor here, but I've been dying for an opportunity to work this guy into a joke for a long time. I've been watching these odd Binder & Binder ads and wondering if Charles Binder really wears those stupid hats around the office, or if he just busts them out for commercials. Anyway, binders full of women, lulz.
One of them was one of the most feared defensive linemen in the National Football League in the 1980s, and was a member of the New York Jets' vaunted New York Sack Exchange. The other is the bassist in the virtual/real death metal band Dethklok, as seen on the show Metalocalypse. The question is... were Mark Gastineau and William Murderface separated at birth?
New for 1955, it's the wonderful RCA Victor television... available in fifty shades of grey! Because who needs color? (For more Almost Ads, click here.)
I can tell what Tupperware was going for in this ad -- which ran in a 1969 issue of Field & Stream by the way -- but here we have a demonstration of how a very subtle thing can turn a photo from cheeky to creepy. The wife is supposed to convey a mixture of surprise and mild annoyance. To my eyes she looks like she's stifling a scream while her husband polishes his rifle and mutters something about making them all pay. If you ask me, that woman about two seconds from dropping that soda and plate of cheese and running out of that rumpus room as fast as her legs can take her. (For more Almost Ads, click here.)
Did you know that Zooey Deschanel's middle name is Claire? I didn't, because I hate her. Luckily this awesome commercial spoof -- "It's called 'cotton,' you've probably never heard of it." -- from Regretsy helps ease my white-hot rage against all things adorkable just a little bit. Go ahead, watch it again. I already have.
We've grown accustomed to machines taking over routine jobs that humans used to perform (think auto assembly, telephone operators, etc.). But now, the machines are even taking away our fun. Recently, researchers at Japan’s Ishikawa Oku Laboratory unveiled a robotic hand that is unbeatable at the time-honored game of rock-paper-scissors (Roshambo). That’s right, the friggin' machines have taken rock-paper-scissors away from us. And this is simply the latest example of artificial intelligence ruining our cherished games and acting like a giant buzzkill with circuits in the process. “What Is an Ass-Kicking?” In 2011, IBM’s Watson supercomputer appeared on Jeopardy! and wiped the floor with two of the show’s greatest champions, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter.
