As with any great leader’s or celebrity’s passing, social media sites like Facebook and Twitter are a mixed bag of tributes, terrible jokes and just all-around asinine observations, as Cajun already pointed out with the passing of Nelson Mandela. Show More Summary
While I never heard back on the final numbers that the Jeep Wrangler in Texas sold for, I assume that the seller received at least eight figures for his trouble. But as it turns out, being an amazing online car salesman isn’t simplyShow More Summary
Nelson Mandela — the leader of the South African black liberation movement who spent 27 years in prison after being convicted of treason by a government filled with political opponents hell-bent on silencing him, only to later be elected president after his release — is dead. Show More Summary
Musical fans have been storming the Internet to complain about NBC’s desperate bid for attention, staging The Sound Of Music live, tonight, in place of their Thursday lineup, because people would rather watch The CW than Sean Saves The World. Show More Summary

Walt Disney’s Frozen Head turned 102 today. He passed away in 1966, the same year rock moved from Pat Boone to Pet Sounds. A year later, The Velvet Underground & Nico would come out, and, along with the help of some garage rock bands, the proto-punk movement would begin. If only Walt had lived to see the Ramones, the Sex Pistols, the Clash, and the Damned.
It just wouldn’t be Christmas without Randy Quaid’s Cousin Eddie proclaiming, “Merry Christmas…shtter was full,” now would it? Earlier this week we gave you a look at the obscure facts behind the John Hughes classic, Home Alone. We’re...Show More Summary
It was the summer of 1993. You and Johnny had been going out for seven months. It was a long enough time. You were ready. So, one night, after catching a screening of The Beverly Hillbillies, you and him drove to Cherrybreak Ridge. That’s where it happened, in the back of your mom’s Land Cruiser. Show More Summary
One of the problems with Christmas songs is that there are so damnably few of them. Every year, we’re consigned to a aural hell that consists of “Sleigh Ride” being played on repeat as muzak and the same five novelty singles from the ’50s being played everywhere you go. So Reddit, and Joel Hodgson, have attempted to rectify this, with the best Christmas carol of all.
The hilarious image above can mean only one thing: dastardly hackers have struck once again! A massive intrusion on networks including Facebook, Google and Yahoo has resulted in over 2 million usernames and passwords being compromised. Show More Summary
After a year on the job, Former NBC destroyer of worlds and current CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker is ready to shake things up at the 24-hour news network. The plan is to turn CNN from a network that has gotten bogged down by poorly reporting the news and turn it into a network that poorly reports the news in between episodes of reality shows.
This is the kind of video that shows the exact reasons the GoPro is one of the greatest inventions the Internet can abuse. In it we see a mako shark emerge from the murky depths to feed and attack, flooding my memory with terrible memories of Jaws 3 and Jaws: The Revenge. From the YouTube page: This was shot out of Ocean City, MD on the 4th of July on the Pumpin Hard.
Every year, the protectors of freedom at NORAD run a special “Santa Tracker” website that allows the good little boys and girls of America and Canada to find out where their presents are, so their parents can slip away to pour a little rum in their egg nog. Show More Summary
Sometimes I get the feeling that people who sell things online might not always be the most honest people. Maybe it’s just me, but after I tried to follow up about that time machine that was being sold in Winter Park, FL last year, I started to think that maybe some people are fibbing just a little bit in order to either rip people off or just make a joke out of something.
At least not yet. But some people want it to, and they’re using an insignificant award show as a catalyst. Last night, Jennifer “The Human GIF Machine” Lawrence won Best Supporting Actress at the New York Film Critics Circle for her role as a reckless housewife in American Hustle, which promises to be, at the very least, the most ass-slappiest movie of the year.
Mac and Charlie’s inability to quit each other is one of my all-time favorite It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia moments. Just two white trash boys who like to throw rocks connecting with one another from across the room in a strange and uncomfortable place. So whenever I see an iteration on the internet it never ceases to bring me joy.
As any sane person knows, this whole selfie thing has been long out of control, what with people taking selfies at Holocaust memorials and funerals and whatnot. But with this I think we’ve reached peak selfies. Reports the New York Post: America’s...Show More Summary
This statement from Metta World Peace in the New York Daily News regarding his fight with teammate Kenyon Martin is the most important sports quote you’ll ever read, so I need you to stop whatever you’re doing and follow along carefully. Seriously. “We were eating pasta. He had elbow pasta, I had shell pasta, and I told him how my shell pasta is better than his elbow pasta.
Hey hermano. While the rest of his English-speaking classmates submitted themselves singing Lou Bega songs for a Spanish course assignment, Redditor “TechSis” did them one better: he starred in a delightful parody of every telenova. The music, the lighting, the overacting, he got them all, and an A+ grade. Show More Summary
The internet has stepped up its game in a short amount of time in response to The Walking Dead’s mid-season finale Sunday night. With lots of material comes lots of LOLs, obviously. I don’t want to spoil the fun so let’s get right to remembering the season four mid-season finale the way it was meant to be remembered, shall we?
