In Other News: Dogs Still Love Peanut Butter

Yes, dogs still love peanut butter and they still look hilarious while eating it. For those who need proof of this, and for those who appreciate this simple fact, the Instagram series titled #peanutbutterseries is a must-see. 

As you might have guessed, the series pretty much just features pictures of dogs eating peanut butter. But when you have such a delightfully goofy photo series concept, do you really need more than that?

There are hundreds of dogs in the series, so you'll certainly be entertained for a while if you go check it out.

4 Movies and TV Shows That Lied Their Way Into Creation

Imagine Aqua Teen Hunger Force (or Aqua Something You Know Whatever) actually being a detective show like Scooby Doo only with more weird things occuring during the episode and the main characters being food instead of teens. That's pretty much what the show would have been like if the show actually stayed true to the creator's original pitch to the network. Fortunately, they never actually intended to follow through with that idea and the show has since evolved into the utterly bizarro mishmash it has become.

And that's only one of the many shows that were created thanks to a lie featured in this great Cracked article.

Elf Told in 8-Bit In 120 Seconds

(Video Link)

There seems to be something about Elf that makes people love it or hate it. You can count me among the many who love the movie and I certainly enjoy this 8-Bit Cinema take on the film.

If you haven't seen it yet, perhaps this 120 second take on the film can help you decide whether or not you actually would like the storyline. Of course, this animation does lack the delightful humor of Will Ferrell, which is exactly what makes the movie so fantastic.

The Deep Fried PBR Burger

We've talked about Philadelphia's PYT burger restaurant before as they have made a name for themselves by serving spaghetti burgers, deep fried Twinkie burgers and a deep fried lasagna bun burger. Now they're at it again, serving up burgers that are actually topped with deep fried beer in their Beerger. That's right -not beer batter, but frozen PBR wrapped in wontons and crushed pretzel breading and deep fried. The burger has so much beer that the restaurant will actually card you before you order it.

This Bunny Loves His Baths

(Video Link)

What's more relaxing than a nice warm bath after a long, stressful day? Pretty much nothing, right?

Well, believe it or not, bunnies feel the same way...or at least, this bunny does -especially when they are paired with soft, gentle massages. Little Cloody here even fell asleep during this relaxing massage session. 

While rabbits don't usually need help bathing because, like cats, they clean themselves. Cloody certainly loves his occassional bath time and you can tell just by looking at this bundle of relaxation.

What the Koala Say

(Video Link)

Apologies if I got the chorus of a certain hit Youtube song in your head, but let's be honest, the same premise of that song certainly applies to koalas. After all, you probably never heard one of them make noise before. 

But now that you've seen this video, you might better understand why we never hear koalas speak -because they are embarassed by their shockingly deep voices. If you looked like that and sounded more like a pig than a cute fluffly bear, you'd probably be shy about your noises too.

The Magical Wedding Unicorn

The other day we showed you the Beericorn -the unicorn-shaped keg dispenser featured at Erin and Shayne's wedding. But if it's possible to have something cooler than that, it's the flame-shooting, lemonade-peeing and glitter-snorting unicorn featured at Anna Schumacher's wedding

Sure, it might seem a little weird to drink the urine of a unicorn (or any creature for that matter), but when it's something this amazing, even drinking its urine can imbue you with the creature's magical powers. Or at least, that's what I would tell my self before drinking about 12 glasses of unicorn urine lemonade.

The Geekiest Snowmen Ever

Sculpt snow or do not sculpt snow, there is no try. That has to be the philosophy behind creating a snow sculpture this amazingly intricate. This great creation was made for the 2005 Sapporo Snow Festival.

Of course, that's not the only geek snow sculpture out there and you don't have to go to Japan to see something of this caliber. i09 has a great list of geeky snowmen and sculptures and these two are only the tip of the iceberg (or snow pile in this case).

The Worst Photoshop Fails of 2013

As someone with practically no Photoshop skills, I try to take it easy on most designers because they're still doing a better job than I would. Of course, every now and again, there is a Photoshop disaster so bad that even my computer illiterate uncle would probably be able to avoid and this list of 23 of the worst Photoshop fails of the year features mistakes that are all pretty much all on that level. For example, where's that poor little girl's arm?

And how did the mysterious red carpet appear behind Christina and no one else? Trust me, the rest are all just as bad and certainly worth a laugh, even if you aren't a photoshop master yourself.

The Top Ten Cute Things From Cute Overload of 2013

2013 might not have been the greatest year of your life, but it was certainly the a great year when it comes to cutness. Don't believe me, well, remember the Shetland ponies in Shetland sweaters?

Or when Chris P. Bacon and Lentil Bean met for the first time? Those are only two of the ten amazingly adorable things that made 2013 pretty legendary in the realm of cute critters. You can find the rest of the precious list over at Cute Overload.

15 Utterly Bizarre Hello Kitty Tattoos

There is TONS of Hello Kitty merchandise out there for her millions of ravenous fans (need proof, just check out all the Hello Kitty goodies we have in the NeatoShop), but for some people, owning a dozen purses, bows and jewelry just isn’t enough. These people think they need to get the kitty embedded deep in their skin as a tattoo and not everyone is content with a generic, happy Kitty either. Some people want HK to be a bit darker and much weirder than we usually see her. Here are some of the strangest Hello Kitty tattoos ever inked.

A special thanks to Hello Kitty Hell, which is always a great source for all things WTF HK.

Way Scarier Than Buffalo Bill

Hello Kitty? More like “Hello Clarice” when it comes to this terrifying HK Hannibal Lecter tattoo. Hello Kitty Hell reader Nickey Lynn’s mashup is so horrific that Hannibal Kitty would probably manage to be less scary while wearing a mask made from another person’s face.

She is Here for Your Soul

If any tortured being has risen from Hell to bring pain upon the living, it must be Hello Kitty. At least, I think that’s the message of this HK Cenobite tattoo. While I don’t know who has this masterpiece, I do know it was inked by Tattoo by Rodney at Different Drummer Tattoo in Wichita Falls, TX.

Friday the Kittieth

Don’t go skinny dipping at Camp Crystal Litter or this horrific take on Jason just might get you. I hear if you go in a dark room and say “Hello Kitty” three times, this monster comes out and kills you. Sure it could just be an urban legend, but with something this terrifying, would you really want to risk it?

Murder by Kitten

We’ve all heard the rhyme, “Kitty Borden took an axe and gave her creator forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave this person forty-one.” Oh, wait, that’s not how it goes? Oh well, it certainly fits this bloody mess of a Hello Kitty tattoo.

She’ll Be Back

Face it, a part of you always knew that HK wasn’t actually a creature that could ever be made of flesh and bone –so it only makes sense that she’s actually part of the rise of the machines. This tattoo depicts that time that in her quest to kill John Connor and destroy the future of humanity, part of her face was ripped off, revealing the horrific machine underneath.

All Hail the Beericorn

There are a lot of ways to make a wedding special, unique and geeky, but I had yet to see a unicorn appear at a wedding, let alone a beericorn...at least, until now.

This brilliant take on the traditional celebratory keg was featured at Offbeat Bride readers Erin and Shayne's wonderful wedding. Believe it or not, the horse was actually one of the first things the couple planned and purchased for the affair -now that's a clever way to enjoy alcohol in style.

11 Weird Tributes to Mr. Spock

If you couldn't tell already, we here at Neatorama love Star Trek, whether it be the original, the Next Generation, Voyager or Enterprise (some of us even like the new reboot, though that's a hotly contested subject). No matter what version of the show is everyone's favorite though, you have to appreciate the original for kicking off the franchise and with that in mind, we adore Leonard Nimoy and these strange art tributes to Spock are something even those with only a mild interest in the U.S.S. Enterprise can still appreciate. 

I'm a particularly big fan of his emo look, though he also makes a pretty great centaur.

The Periodic Table of Alcohol

Science is a critical part of the booze-making process and how alcohol interacts with our bodies, which is why it makes total sense to express alcoholic drinks in a periodic table. This great chart is organized both by type of alcohol and the alcohol by volume of each drink. Plus, it includes what type of beverage the drink is, when it was created and what the main flavor of the drink happens to be. It's a perfect way to organize cocktails. Note that you will probably have to click through to see the whole thing in a size large enough to read it.

My favorite, the white Russian is #61. What about your favorite drink?

11 Seriously Strange Products for Pups

Looking for a great Christmas gift for your pooch? Well, it's almost certainly not going to be on this great Mental Floss list of hilarious and strange dog products. From dog beer to perfume to a Twitter dog tag, the collection is pretty funny. 

Even the handful of stuff that dogs would actually enjoy is still good for a laugh to us human folks -like the chew toy that gives your pooch giant red lips. One thing they almost certainly won't appreciate is the puppy nail polish though, so try to avoid simply torturing your pooch for the sake of fashion.

Dogs With Fake Eyebrows Are Utterly Amazing

(Video Link)

Everyone has emotions and eyebrows are particularly useful in helping express these feelings -even when it comes to dogs. Of course, they aren't just useful for emoting, they're also great for a laugh and this compilation of dogs with fake eyebrows is also great for crack ups. 

My old pooch had small eyebrows that were pretty expressive and I've seen a few with natural markings that look like eyebrows, but none of them look this over the top ridiculous.

14 Fantastic Pieces of Art Based on The Hobbit

I don’t know about you guys, but we here at Neatorama are thrilled about the second installment of Peter Jackson’s take on The Hobbit coming out this weekend, called The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. To celebrate, we decided to round up some of the great fan art based on the story. The cool thing about Hobbit art tributes is that creators have over 75 years of source material to pull from, so some of it is based entirely off of the books, some on the 1977 cartoon and some on the recent films. The end result is a vast amount of variety that expresses just how much impact this story has had throughout the years.

It’s also worth mentioning that there is a TON of artwork based on the story, so this is only a mere fraction of what’s out there. I had to leave out a lot of great creations just to keep this article from stretching on for eternity, so if you like what you see here, keep searching elsewhere for more because you’ll be thrilled with what you find.

Here and Back Again

Chinese artist Jian Guo’s wonderful take on The Hobbit shows the entire plotline in one beautiful medieval-inspired art piece. The artist has a number of pieces dedicated to Tolkien’s stories, including this other Hobbit design showing the fateful night where the dwarves show up at Bilbo’s hobbit hole to devise a plan to get back what’s rightfully theirs.

A Hobbit’s Tale

Here’s another artwork depicting the full extent of the story, this one by Belgian artist Ian Escobar Loos. In the far right corner, you can see Bilbo’s end goal: the return to Bag End.

Framing The Lonely Mountain

This illustration by Daniel Haugnes may not reveal much about the story of the Hobbit, but it rivals the film in the spectacular beauty of its scenery.

The Serenity of a Hobbit Hole

Russian artist Andrei Pevukhin has illustrated many famous scenes from both The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, but I’m particularly struck by the simplicity and beauty of this scene, showing Gandalf approaching Bag End in the beginning of the story. Impressively, this speed painting only took the artist two hours to complete.

Not a Nasty, Dirty, Wet Hole

The films do a decent job of helping fans to visualize a hobbit hole, but if you really want to know why a hobbit would choose to live inside a hole in the ground, you’ll want to check out DeviantArt user maddsrocks’ detailed model of Bag End.

The Ultimate in Geeky Christmas Wreaths

Christmas wreaths are a great holiday tradition and something fun you can do with your whole family, but if your family is a bunch of geeks, why not make your wreath reflect your geeky inclinations as well?

Our Nerd Home has instructions to make your own geektastic and totally custom door wreath with a little more than foam board, glue, makers and an X-acto knife. Of course, if you live somewhere with a lot of rain and snow, you'll need to seal it or keep it inside, but if you live somewhere warm (like Southern California), you can hang it up right on the front door.

Forget Ugly Christmas Sweaters, These Are Just Plain Wrong

There are plenty of ugly sweaters out there this time of year, but while most of them are trashy and tacky, it takes a lot to be downright offensive and terrible like this Santa spelling out Merry Christmas in the snow. 

The vomitting reindeer above is even downright classy compared to some of the really bad ones that show reindeers making love, a gingerbread man's "jingle bells" and Santa in a seriously comprimising position.

Don't miss the whole hilarious list over at InventorSpot.

Christmas Vacation? More Like Christmas in Prison

We've talked about cool secrets behind National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, but one thing that article didn't explore was what would happen to the Griswolds after they kidnap Frank Shirley. While he says he'll drop the charges, the fact that the police sent in a SWAT team means that Eddie probably won't be getting off that easy. 

In fact, according to San Diego criminal lawyer Peter Liss, Eddie is pretty much going to spend Christmas in jail, but at least he can fight the kidnapping charges:

With the help of a San Diego criminal attorney and a series of tests by medical professionals, Eddie would have a very strong defense based on the fact that he does not have the mental facilities to understand his actions. Because Eddie already has a low IQ and has even been part of clinical drug trials that were likely to damage whatever intelligence he already had, charges against him would likely be dropped before the case went to trial and if it did go to court, the jury would likely find him not guilty on grounds of mental impairment.

Well, at least he'd be out in time for Vegas Vacation.

The Vespa Segway

Segways are actually pretty useful little vehicles, but they just look so darnn stupid. Fortunately, there's a new option out there for those who want to use a personal transport vehicle.

The Zero Scooter combines the style of a Vespa Scooter with the functionality of a scooter. It actually uses real parts from a Vespa, which is why it looks so cool and authentic to its inspiration. It can climb slopes of up to 30 degrees and can travel up to 21 miles on one charge at speeds of up to 12 mph. 

Of course, if you want to ride around in style, it will cost you -$3,925 to be exact.

Forget Christmas, It's Time for Cute-Mas

You don't have to be human to love the holidays. These critters featured on Cute Overload are proof of that and man are they adorable. 

You might see pups in costumes and kitties attacking trees pretty regularly, but you really don't see horses, rats and turtles getting in the holiday spirit all too often, so this is a great opportunity to enjoy all variety of animals celebrating Christmas.

If any of your critters are looking fantastic in their holiday best, we'd be happy to feature them here. Just send in your images to jill@neatorama.com.

Thomas The Tank Engine Takes Over Skyrim

(Video Link)

Back when Skyrim was new, we posted all kinds of goofy stuff from the game, but now that it's a few years old, you just don't see that much new stuff come out about the game. Even so, it's still an amazing adventure ripe for modding.

And here's an amazing new mod everyone can enjoy -Thomas the Tank Engine as a dragon. Kids will love getting to see their favorite talking train fly through the sky and parents can enjoy murdering the character they've been forced to watch thanks to their kid. It's a win-win.

What An Artist Remembers From Star Wars

If you tried to put everything you remember from Star Wars on one page, how much of the series do you think you'd actually cover? When it comes to artist and Star Wars fan John Hendrix's take on the franchise, it's pretty impressive just how much of the films are covered. If you're wondering what would motivate him to take on such a major undertaking, he writes:

I can never repay George Lucas for what Star Wars gave me. Star Wars is so close to my heart, I honestly couldn’t decide what image to make for this show, it was just all too important. So I just decided to draw everything… from memory.

Maybe he could try his hand at Indiana Jones next. I'd sure love to see Nazis, snakes and religious artifacts mixed in together.

Doctor Sherlock Gingerbread TARDIS

They might both be mad men, but only The Doctor has a box. Of course, if there's one great place to have your mind blown that doesn't involve traveling through space and time, it's 221B Baker St. This great double fandom gingerbread house was created by Twitter user Wholock.

It's a perfect gingerbread house for fans of these two great BBC shows, but it's really exciting for all those fangirls out there who find these two men to be the sexiest men on television.

What Dogs Dream of For Christmas

(Video Link)

A whole pile of bones, a comfy bed and, more importantly, a human to feed the bones to you so you don't have to move around in the bed. Now that's a perfect fantasy for any pooch.

Oscar the Boston Terrier's owner put the pup in this set up for a photoshoot and when no one would believe that she didn't photoshop him or use fake bones, she had to upload this video to prove that Oscar really is just that well behaved -and just that lazy.

13 Weird and Terrible Christmas Ornaments

At the Neatoshop, we have some great Christmas ornaments available, including some delightfully weird ones like rubber chicken or bacon ones, but if you still can't get enough, don't miss this great InventorSpot article with 13 strange ornaments. I really like the nudie Santas above, but the S&M gingerbread and meh one are also pretty funny -plus, a lot of them are handmade, meaning they are one of a kind wonders.

Meme Trading Cards

Love the idea of baseball cards, but can't stand sports? Then perhaps these meme trading cards are more up your alley. The clever designs were creaated by artist Glen Brogan for the Gallery 1988 meme show last year. 

The great thing aboug meme trading cards is that like baseball cards, they always have new sources of material. If you need proof, just look at Know Your Meme and notice how many new memes are added every day. On the upside, Glen had the foresight to know this and allow you to contribute your own meme using the blank card at the bottom.

Gorgeous Avengers-Inspired Evening Gowns

Are you ready to be the belle of the ball in absolute geek style? If so, you might want to talk to unidentifiedspoon about turning one of her amazing Avengers dresses into a real gown.

While we've seen a few Avengers dresses before (one of which has already even been made a reality), these designs are particularly perfect for a formal occassion, and they even are designed with beautiful jewelry that matches the ensembles perfectly so your outfits are perfectly accessorized.

I'm particularly fond of this Lokie design, which seems like it would be perfect for the character's female incarnation -though I'd still want to sport some horns if I dressed as Loki.
