Channel 7 News is there to report all the hard hitting NEWS YOU NEED TO KNOW! Where do I get a job reporting on swimming kitties? I bet I could do it without laughing, and give the story the gravitas it deserves, unlike this woman who totally collapses into giggles. How terribly unprofessional. *Shakes head*
This is a little weird for a couple of reasons. First because there’s a talking Russian dashboard hamster in it (larger than scale), second because the guy is filming himself driving around and talking with the dashboard hamster (which also highlights the bizarre prevalence of car cams in Russia, as was brought to the attention of many after the recent meteor strike).
Anyway, chatty little guy, isn’t he? I’m glad it’s not in English because I bet it wouldn’t have been nearly as funny.
The caption for this pic just reads, “A cake that my sister made… I present: Willie Nelson!”
Dude, your sister is awesome. Is there weed in it?
I wonder if I’d have the guts to do something like this if I ever get severely stiffed. I doubt it, as I can see it turning off potential clients, even if I was right.
It seems that a man named Frank Jonen, owner of a web design company, hijacked the website of Fitness SF, claiming he hadn’t been paid for designing the site. The site temporarily looked like the above pic, according to Ad Week. It has since been changed.
SF Fitness, a chain of gyms, told Ad Week, however, that Jonen missed deadlines and failed to finish the website, which has now been passed to a new design firm. They also say he was paid and that now he’s trying to extort more money out of them for the unfinished product.
“Frank is attempting to portray himself as the victim when truly the victim is Fitness SF as he attempts to get paid for work he did not complete and has decided that blackmail is the way to accomplish that.”
Prosecutors got no sense of humour.
Cops in the UK are under investigation for filling in a witness statement in the name of a police dog. The Daily Mail reports that the officers got frustrated after repeated requests for a statement from PC Peach, even though they’d already explained that Peach was a dog (an alsatian, apparently).
So, they filled it out in his name. It says, “I chase him. I bite him. Bad man. He tasty. Good boy. Good boy Peach.”
It was tacked to the wall at a West Midlands Police station and, of course, made its way onto Facebook, then Twitter.
Prosecutors are apparently not amused and are complaining that they’re being made the butt of a joke.
Sources apparently say the cops behind the joke are unlikely to wind up in the doghouse over it.
SEE WHAT I DID THERE?
This is very exciting. I have tried asking this exact question several different ways, mainly of my husband, who only sort of gets what I’m driving at. It bugs me that I haven’t been able to explain it well.
Unfortunately, VSauce’s conclusion is that there’s no way to know the answer to “Is your red the same as my red?” but it heartens me to know I’m not the only one thinking about this. Yay.
This is Jorge Perez Gonzales in “Bottom Percussion.”
Ha. (via Laughing Squid)
Apparently, it can be difficult to get tortoises to do the humpday hump in captivity. Or it is at this zoo, anyway.
Enter pianist Richard Clayderman. The hope, apparently, is that the soothing, romantic tones of Clayderman’s keyboard will move these 150-year-old dudes and dudettes to produce an heir. Will it work??? I guess we’ll see.
I wonder if the Empress Elizabeth of Russia tried this with Peter and Catherine.
It was only a matter of time, hours really, before someone remixed Hitchhiker Kai’s post life-saving hatchet attack interview into an autotuned track. I don’t know what it is about this kid but I just love him. He makes me both giddy and verklemt all at the same time.
See the original interview here.
Above is the dance version and below is the acoustic version. Natch.
