Are You Ready for Some Otterball?

We're huge fans of the Puppy Bowl and even the Kitten Bowl (despite the fact that it's a blatant rip off), but if you're looking for some live animal sports, some new teams or just a little more water in the game, you'll want to head to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach to enjoy the second annual Otter Bowl.

The otters in the otter bowl aren't just limited to boring old footballs and even toy balls, they even are given a special football made out of clams.

If you're looking for a little live animal championship entertainment but happen to be in San Francisco rather than LA, be sure to stop by the live Puppy Bowl at Gott's Roadside. Best of all, the athletes are all up for adoption there so you could even bring home a new best friend.

This Hungry Sea Lion Pup Headed Right to a Restaurant

When you're hungry and you don't want to cook for yourself, you go to a restaurant. But who knew that sea lions thought the same way? At least one little guy in San Diego does as he headed to a beach-front restaurant The Marine Room yesterday morning and sat himself in a booth awaiting service. 

While the waitstaff was slow to show up for work, the little guy took in the great view.

Unfortunately, he never got his order of fish and chips, but he was taken in by a rescue team -though only after executive chef Bernard Guillas took a few choice photos of the odd occurrence.

Lemurs Love to Get High on Millipedes

Lemurs are everything depicted in Madagascar -adorable, fuzzy and pretty f-ing crazy. But now that insanity sort of makes sense now that we know black lemurs actually enjoy getting high, it makes a lot more sense. So how do they get high? As it turns out, despite mostly eating fruit, they have a soft spot for black millipedes as well. If there's any question about whether or not they're trying to get high or just trying to have a snack, there's no debate there as they don't even eat the poisonous bugs, but simply take a bite and then throw it on the ground.

The millipedes often don't even die, but they do spray a toxic cloud at the lemur, which then spreads it along its fur. Aside from a sweet trip, the lemur also gets the benefit of using the poison as a mosquito repellant.

Hellpug and Company Just Need A Few Kitty Best Friends

We've seen The Gamorrean Pug Guard, Pug Vader, the Banthapug, the leads of Doctor Pug, Spock from Star Pug and a barrage of television show intros with pugs. Now Pupstar Sonoma (who previously created the Game of Pugs) has brought us the superpug movie we've been dying to see -Hellpug.

If you prefer fantasy pugs, the company has also created the Pugs of Middle Earth for you to enjoy so you should still check out the link and say "hello" to some of the most fantastically dressed pugs on earth.

Punk Rock and Metal Cats Decked Out in Vests

Self-expression is a huge part of the punk and metal scene and sharing your favorite bands and other interests on your vest or jacket is one of the best ways to express yourself. Of course, just because these scenes are mostly made up of humans, that doesn't mean cats don't know how to rock just as hard.

Over at both Buzzfeed and Metal Sucks, there are a few great collections of punk and metal kitties decked out in their most rocking vests. They sure look cute, but with their vests and attitudes, these cats aren't to be messed with.

When the Daleks Attacked Harry Potter

(Video Link)

The Harry Potter film series had some of the best actors in Britain -including David Tennant just before he was cast as The Doctor. While it's always fun to imagine actors playing their most famous roles in their other films, it's particularly easy with David Tennant, since the Tenth Doctor once wiped his memory so he thought he was human just to hide out from a particularly evil family of aliens.

This mashup with Harry Potter is perfect for those who love imagining that Bartleby Couch Jr. is just a strange and confused Doctor in hiding.

This Artist Created Portraits of Himself After Trying 52 Different Drugs

Artist Bryan Lewis Sanders wondered how different drugs may affect his perception, so he started a series where he did self portraits under the influence of (or shortly after doing) different drugs. At first he did the experiment once every day, but after a few weeks, he started suffering from lethargy and mild brain damage. While he's continuing the experiments to this day, now he's limiting himself to occasional drugs administered under the expertise of medical professionals.

While his artworks don't always portray how the drug makes a person feel while they are using them, they do illustrate how the artist feels while on the drug or at least while thinking about the drug. For example, the top image demonstrates Ambien, the middle one PCP and the one below on hash.

Needless to say, even if you do enjoy occasional recreational drug use, this is an experiment you really shouldn't try at home.

A David Bowie Fan Art Tribute

The world lost a music legend yesterday when it was announced that David Bowie died at the age of 69 after battling cancer for over a year. It's never easy to say goodbye to someone you look up to, so rather than try to say it in words, we opted to say goodbye with the help of some of the many wonderful artists around the web.

Dolly Chops' Changes

This wonderful GIF is quite possibly the most popular image out there right now celebrating David Bowie's long and wonderful career. It was made by artist Dolly Chops to celebrate the musician's birthday just last Friday.

Mauricio Telles' McFries Creation

Artist Mauricio Telles has a whole series of artworks made from the boxes of McDonald's French fries. While I doubt Bowie was a big McDonald's fan, this strange portrait seems a delightfully perfect tribute to the singer's wonderfully odd persona.

Janey Jane's Nouveau Dedication

Art Nouveau is all the rage these days, but whether or not it's trendy right now, it's hard to argue that it seems a fitting style for artwork based on Labyrinth and that this poster art is simply fantastic.

Smooth Criminal73's Beautiful Intensity

David always managed to have a unique combination of beauty and intensity in his face -something difficult for artists to replicate well, but this pencil portrait of the rock star perfectly captures that striking look.

David Deb's Romantic Labyrinth

Take A Bite Out of Luggage Theft With Monster Luggage

Luggage theft is incredibly easy these days as criminals just have to wait for a black rolling bag to pass by on the luggage carousel and snag it. If someone actually stops them, they just have to say "oops, it looks just like mine" and people will believe it.

You'll never need to worry about that problem with this amazing monster luggage from Etsy seller WaywardLeatherDesign. Sure it doesn't roll like you're generic black suitcase, but no one will "accidentally" grab your luggage ever again -at least not without worrying that your luggage might bite them.

Researchers Plan to Build 3D Model of Temple Destroyed by Isis

The Temple of Bel in Syria was an ancient structure built all the way back Mesopotamia. It managed to survive up until August of last year, when ISIS destroyed the building. Now as both a way to honor our history and as a method of resistance against the Islamic State, researchers from Harvard University, the University of Oxford, and Dubai’s Museum of the Future are working together to transform 2D images of the temple into a 3D model that will then be 3D printed and put on display in both London and New York. The replicas will be on display as part of UNESCO's World Herritage Week in April 2016 to remind people just how important the protection of our ancient structures is.

8 Kitchen Gadgets No One Actually Needs

There is something fun about getting a new kitchen tool, but the sad truth is that all too many of the kitchen gadgets available today are just pointless. For the most part, all you really need is a nice set of knives, a cutting board, some good mixing bowls and a few quality pans. 

What you don't need are a selection of specialized food slicers, a device designed just for cooking eggs in tube form or something specially created just to help you dip Oreos in milk. So check out the fulll list of useless kitchen tools at Homes and Hues: 8 Kitchen Gadgets No One Really Needs

Celebrate Christmas With the Soothing Sounds of Screaming Goats

(Spotify Link)

If there's one thing anyone who has ever worked in retail during the holidays can agree on, it's that they just can't handle listening to another sugary-sweet, cheesy Christmas carol. That being said, I think most people can agree on the brilliance of these classic Christmas carols made completely new again with the angelic soothing sounds of singing goats.

Finally you can re-embrace the beauty of these classic, but over-performed Christmas tunes.

The Weirdest Urban Legends About Walt Disney

We at Neatorama are big fans of Walt Disney and his magical creations, but even as fans, it's easy to get swept away with some of the urban legends built around the man. Even if you're familiar with the one about Walt's body (or even just his disembodied head) being cryogenically frozen, you probably still haven't heard some of the great urban legends. For example, the one about Walt leaving his fortune to the first pregnant man is new to me, as is the idea that he chose seven dwarves to accompany Snow White to represent the seven stages of cocaine addiction.

Doug the Pug Reveals the Beauty of Pugavision

(Video Link)

Doug the Pug is always charming no matter what crazy hijinx he's up to, but if you're a TV-aholic, you're really going to get a kick out of his recent television intro parody. The video is surprisingly long, giving you access to all kinds of famous television show intros -so there's surely some from shows you actually love. Even if you hate all the shows though, seeing Doug and his friends goof around in adorable wigs makes the whole thing worth while. 

If only there was an app to make all my shows better with Pugavision.

Van Orton Design's Amazing Psychedelic Movie Posters

Love cult classics? Then you'll love these delightful, 70s-inspired artworks by Van Orton Design. While the movies portrayed date all the way from the 70s to the last decade, the style seems incredibly fitting for any cult film no matter what the decade.

Pre-Fame Roles of Celebrities

We've all watched an older movie and had that moment of "OMG, I didn't realize so-and-so was in that." That's why I love this great Flavorwire article featuring 50 actors in some of their early, pre-fame movie roles. From Zooey Deschanel in Almost Famous to Laurence Fishburne in Apocalypse Now, it's funny how many stars are in big-name movies without actually being remembered for those roles. Of course, even those that you remember in those roles are fun to remember.

Adopt A New Best Friend This Black Friday For Free

While many people will be out fist fighting over the best discount sweaters, you can meet a new best friend and take him or her home for free. That's because Zappos.com is partnering with a national animal rescue program called Best Friend Animal Sanctuary and the rescue's network partners to offer free animal adoption on Black Friday. Aside from Zappos covering the adoption fee, the company will also be donating an additional $150 to the rescue for every animal adopted to help other furry friends that don't get new homes that day. 

Even if you can't get to one of the rescues in your area, you can adopt a dog or cat from the rescue's Utah location, where they will help transfer any pet at the shelter to your location in any of the 50 states.

I Want to Believe In This X Files Merchandise

Every major pop culture phenomenon ends up having some strange official merchandise, but the stuff that truly resonnates with fans ends up having some even more bizarre unofficial merchandise, much of which is available for sale on Etsy.
