Ducks showcase fashions from the 1800s

Here are those pictures you’ve been waiting for from the Pied Piper Duck Show in Sydney Australia.

According to Brian Harrington, who runs the show:

“The famous dressed up ducks have their own dressmaker who individually styles each costume to a theme or era. We have covered day wear, evening wear, bridal wear, race day attire, ‘Dryzabone’ and even a Jane McGrath Foundation inspired gown. They are currently showcasing costumes from the 1800’s era as well as favourites from the past.”

“No, you stoppit.”

“No, you.”

“OK. Let’s all stoppit.”

“HEY! Stoppit.”

“No, you stoppit.”

How to feed 7 motherf****ers for under $5

“I don’t know what the f*ck this is. It’s just somethin’ sweet for the f*ckin’ kids, OK?”

This is Auntie Fee, a.k.a. Sista Girl. I love her.

Hilarious. Plus, in all seriousness, she is teaching valuable lessons about cooking on a budget. Sh*t. Motherf***er. She’s f***in’ awesome. I tag this high art.


Royal Guard plays Game of Thrones theme

I have no idea what you’re talking about. So, here’s the Royal Guard at Buckingham Palace playing the Game of Thrones theme. I love it. These guys are cool. Remember the time they played the Imperial March?

I think the Queen is a fan of GoT, since she was recently snapped standing next to the Iron Throne, though not sitting on it. I hope she’s a fan because maybe she can get George R.R. moving on those last two books. I mean, if anyone could she could, right? Maybe?

It’s been a hip week at the palace, as Her Majesty also made news today for photobombing a selfie.

Selfie toaster

Selfie-Toast-Bread

Move over Jesus. There’s a new toastface in town and it’s MINE. Or whoever’s. It’s a customizable selfie toaster by a company called Burnt Impressions, that specializes in toasters that create images, which I think is a probably a pretty niche market.

If you’re wondering how it works, there’s more info on Mashable.


Tiny animals eat tiny cake at hedgehog borthday…borthday? I mean birthday party.

I have been really busy, though I do plan to start posting again soon.

In the meantime, if you land here and are all “Where is everyone?!” here’s a video of a hedgehog birthday party.

OMG HE HAS TWO HAMSTER FRIENDS AND THEY’RE EATING TINY CAKE.

But then the hedgehog jumps on the table and knocks shit over and I’m like “RUDE!”


Beauty ideals in different countries. The USA has really weird taste

ester

This is so weird.

Ester Honig, a “human interest reporter” shared a picture with 40 photo editors in over 25 countries, using service sharing site Fiverr (not sure if the project is an ad for Fiverr but it might as well be) and told them to “make me look beautiful.” So they went to town with the Photoshop.

The idea, I think, is that it’s supposed to show the ideal beauty in each of these countries, though really it may just show the ideal of the photo editor and maybe doesn’t say anything about the country at all. I don’t know. But let’s say it does say something about the country (it makes a better headline)…

The result? She looks worse in every single retouched photograph than in the untouched one (above). I’m not just saying that. She’s a pretty girl  and I really think she looks better as is – and I don’t say that about everyone (OK, I kind of do but not ALWAYS).

The U.S.A. version is literally gross. She looks like a child pageant queen with a squishy face starring in a young adult vampire B movie.

More takeaways:

Sri Lankans don’t know how to apply makeup evenly

Germans like redheads

Greeks really likes eyelashes

WTF, Philippines?

Meanwhile, Honig herself said, “Photoshop allows us to achieve our unobtainable standards of beauty, but when we compare those standards on a global scale, achieving the ideal remains all the more elusive.”

Here are the pictures.

Automatic sperm collector

I’m glad I’m not the guy who just stuck his finger in this thing, only to find out it’s a SPERM COLLECTOR, designed for use in fertility clinics and hospitals. Because, gross.
