Try turning on this video and listening to the sound before you actually look at the screen. You'll be amazed at what cute little critter is making this noise.
Little Bun Bun is simply the cutest thing on four legs, whether he's meowing like a weirdo, crawling around on his side or just mugging at the camera. It's hard to look away from this squishy faced little cutie pie.
If you could make one scene to show what your state is best known for, what would it be? As a Californian, I certainly wouldn't depict my state as filled with hippies, but I know it really is known for that. So I won't be too hard on Canadian photographer Jeff Freisen for depicting my state as a land of hippies.
In fact, considering he's not even from this country, he did a pretty decent job summing up each state in only one image. I'm sure most of you can guess that the one up top is New Mexico and this one is Pennsylvania (specifically Philadelphia). How do you think he did on your state?
Feel like a Jedi master with a slight speech disorder? Then you'll love this great Yoda hoodie made by fan of the blog, Erin Marshall. These adorable hoodies are handmade, one-of-a-kind creations that are sure to keep you not only warm, but also stylish.
Of course, if you prefer Hogwarts over Hoth, she has you covered there as well with this great Dobby the Elf-inspired hoodie that can remind the world that you are a free elf with style. Just make sure to wear mismatched socks if you really want to sell the whole look.
Why give someone an ordinary old paper business card when you can give them a beef jerky one? Sure most people won't want to hold beef jerky in their wallet and even fewer people will find it useful as actual food, but it sure sends an interesting message -one that says "I really wish you'd eat my contact information rather than actually using it to contact me."
Of course, it's important to remember Meat Cards are only edible for up to one year, so if you haven't given them all out about 11 months after you ordered them, you probably better enjoy a delicious feast of business cards.
This might be an ad, but when an ad is as clever and funny as this one Ze Frank created for Tidy Cats LightWeight litter.
Since humans are good at opening canned goods and cleaning kitty litter, they need to be well taken care of by their kitties, but despite the handful of abilities that humans have, they really can't care for themselves very well. Fortunately, cats are there to help keep humans warm, mentally stimulated and to remind them the importance of tongues.
Let's be honest, those of us who were youngsters when Home Alone came out thought it was pretty awesome, but once you see it as an adult, you realize it isn't just cheesy, but pretty terrible all around. Of course, if you haven't seen it recently, you might not realize just how terrible it is until this Honest Trailer reminds you that it's about a little sociopath with a horrible family who decides he needs to torture to non-violent criminals who are inexplicably obsessed with breaking in to one specific home -all of which makes for one delightfully bad movie and a great Honest Trailer
I'll be honest, I was a little hesitant to write about these Lord of the Rings cake pops at first because I'm a little over the whole cake pop thing. That is, until I saw that the bakers, Let Them Eat Cake Pops, made this amazing Bormir meme of their own pop. It is hard not to laugh at something this delightfully silly, even if you want to eat it at the same time.
All of these fantastic cake pops do look super realistic though, as do their wonderful Walking Dead pops that feature not only the living characters but also a few walkers.
Have you ever wished you could eat a picture of your wife, kids, pets, family or even yourself? Well, now you can thanks to Boomf, the company that allows you to print any picture of your choice on marshmallows. Just upload your Instagram pics to the site and bam -you can put any picture inside your delicious hot chocolate. Right now you can only get things shipped to the UK, but you can sign up to have the company email you when they start shipping to other companies.
Did you buy a little more pumpkin than you needed this Thanksgiving? Then try using it for something else -like this delicious pumpkin tres leches cake from Willow Bird Baking. For those unfamiliar with tres leches cake, it's translated into "three milks cake," meaning it's soaked in condensed milk, evaporated milk and heavy cream, making it rich, gooey and delicious. Now, just imagine adding pumpkin and a whipped icing into the mix and you can imagine just how heavenly this cake just might be -sort of like a pumpkin pie a la mode.
Now that Thanksgivukkah is over, it's time to enjoy Hanukkah on its own. While not everyone celebrate the holiday due to their religious beliefs, pretty much everyone can appreciate these adorable pooches in complete celebratory spirits.
By the way, if you want to help your pooch celebrate the holiday, we offer great Hanukkah dog toys in the NeatoShop. We also offer quite a few great Hanukkah goodies for humans as well.
We've already seen what happens when Nic Cage becomes everyone. But while we know that he has been in some terrible movies (whether or not you agree he is a terrible actor), it's way more exciting to see a geek actor we all love as just about everyone.
What happens when 152 Brazilian artists get together to draw famous Pokemon? Pure magic apparently. 2Minds Studio was inspired by seeing a worldwide Pokemon project organized by Justin Chan and was inspired to do their own Pokedex that involved only artists native to their country of Brazil.
Even if you aren't a fan of Pokemon, you can still appreciate the fun artworks like this adorable Squirtle design by Danilo Fiocco.
Or this Clefairy piece by Patricia Versiani Cintra. Of course, if you haven't seen the original Pokedex that used artists from around the world, be sure to check it out too.
Count me among the millions of Christmas Vacation viewers who hated Todd and Margo, Clark's neighbors, despite the fact that they really don't do anything wrong other than exist as terrible yuppies. As Megcentric points out with a clever diary written from Todd's point of view though, they really do get the short end of the stick in the movie. In fact, the Griswolds pretty much ruin Todd's entire life.
While I might not be able to agree that the two are actually unsung heroes, they certainly do get pretty screwed over during the film.
Cranberry sauce, French silk pie and pecan pie make for a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner, they're all so filling. Fortunately, there's always room for Jell-O, especially when it is filled with boozy goodness. Best of all, they can all be topped with whipped cream, just like real slices of pie so you get the full flavor and fulfilment of dessert all while drinking at the same time. Tablespoon has all the directions you need to make these a reality for your Thanksgiving meal -just make sure you make them early enough to give the Jell-O time to set.
Want to be a zookeeper but don't want to put in the years of work it takes to get to that position? Then try playing a zookeeper for a day thanks to a program through the London Zoo that lets you feed, interact with and even clean up after penguins, giraffes and more. If you can't make it to London, there are plenty of other cool interactive zoo programs out there these days and Mental Floss has a great list of different ones you can try. I've actually done the San Diego Zoo backstage pass and it was amazing.
There are a lot of clever Christmas displays out there this time of year, but it's still hard to find a Christmas tree this fantastic anywhere in America. You can find this giant salamander tree at the Kyoto Aquarium in Japan. The aquarium is known for weird promotions. In fact, they are the ones who made the fish hot dog back in August. The plush salamanders come in a variety of sizes, so the tree is actually a great way to demonstrate the great items by arranging them large to small.
A diamond is forever, but a dinosaur bone is ancient and if your love has an old soul (or a dinosaur fascination) then this wedding band is a perfect match. The design is by Jewelry by Johan, who sourced the bones he used for the rings from the Morrison Formation in Utah. The fossils date all the way back from the Jurassic Era over 65 million years ago. Prices range from $450 to $1800, which isn't that much considering how old the fossils are and that these beautiful bands are totally handmade.
Cinnamon rolls are always are great breakfast option, especially during the winter. But if you want something really seasonal, try tweaking the recipe a touch like Crazy For Crust did with this great gingerbread spice cinnamon rolls with a maple frosting. Of course, if you're like most of us Neatorama writers, then you probably wouldn't mind making one change to the recipe -working a little bacon in there whether crumbled on top or baked in the middle of the roll itself. Especially because maple and bacon are so good together.
You know what I've always wanted -a training toilet that lets my baby use his iPad while he learns to go potty. Oh wait, that's an insane and idiotic idea... but it has still been made. And that's not the only utterly bizarre and terrible toy that was released this year. Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood rounded up the top 5 worst offenders, but I have to disagree about the Imaginext Mega Apatosaurus after all, battle dinosaurs are always awesome for kids of all ages no matter what the CCFC says.
I had the darnedest time trying to get my dog to sit, let alone teach him to balance things on his head. But I suppose once you teach your dog that, it's only one more step to get them to balance bigger and heavier items.
And when it comes to bigger, heavier item balancing, it's hard to beat Scout. He can balance just about anything on his head -even himself.
I don't know many humans who could keep this still with a flower vase on their head.
Of course, some things are harder to balance than others, at least, when it comes to trying not to eat delicious bacon.
Thanksgiving might not even be over yet, but if you want a great geek ornament on your Christmas tree, you should probably order it now so you get it before you get your tree. With that in mind, here are some fantastic geek ornaments out there.
If you loved the Doctor Who episode Vincent and The Doctor, then you'll love this ornament from Etsy seller EchoBase showing Vincent's paiting of the exploding TARDIS.
Jingle death. Jingle death. Murder all the way. That's right, it's a great jingle bell Dalek ornament made and sold by sweetgeek.
You Can't Take the Christmas From Me
Is there any better form of sweet serenity than hanging Serenity on your tree? If you said no, head over to GingerPots' Etsy shop.
What's better than boring old pumpkin pie? Well, if you're a fan of cookies or cheesecake, you might just prefer these delicious pumpkin cheesecake stuffed cookies from Tahnycooks! They even feature a delicious maple sugar glaze on top to tie all those wonderful flavors together. While everyone will expect pie on Thanksgiving, it doesn't hurt to have a few other dessert options, and with something this rich and delicious, they are certain to be a hit.
Is your little geek ready to visit the Shire? Then try your hand at making this great The Quiet Book and The Ring to introduce your babe to the wonderful world of Middle Earth. We've already seen similar books for Doctor Who, Star Trek and Star Wars, but this time your child can explore fantasy instead of sci fi.
Find the elves in Rivendell and help them welcome their guests!
Will he or she be able to destroy the ring in Mt. Doom? Only time will tell.
Make sure to watch this video with your sound on or you'll be missing half the fun.
Everyone wants to play here and there, but sometimes it gets a little too hard. In the meanwhile, we can all enjoy the puppy's adorable little squeaks even if they are simply whines because he doesn't want to play anymore.
Of course, this kitty just might be sorry when the little puppy grows up and has learned from the kitty that "no" doesn't mean "no" when it comes to ending play time.
Remember the days before Google instant search, where you still had to speculate about what strange searches people performed? These days, we all have experience typing in the beginning of a Google search only to get a suggestion popping up that makes us wonder "what the heck?"
And that is precisely what makes these hilarious illustrations of odd auto-searches so darned hilarious. They not only feature some seriously strange searches, but also help visualize how hilarious the ideas behind these searches are.
We've seen the real Mother of Dragons, but here's one little dragon that needs a mother to step in. He's in fantastic health. In fact, he's already breathing fire, putting him far ahead of the other dragons of his age.
The best thing about this hilarious baby cosplay is his fantastic facial expression that seems to say "What? I'm a dragon? When did this happen?" Let's just hope he doesn't let his fire go out of control while he tries to get a hold on his surprise.
Nose-vember is almost at its end, but we still have a good week left to enjoy adorable animal noses before they're all gone, so with that in mind, it's time for another fun critter poll. So who has the cutest nose in the animal kingdom?
It's been a while since we featured a Disneyland article, but after visiting the park for my birthday, I just knew I had to write an article on their holiday festivities. Aside from their amazing decorations, the Christmas-themed Small World, their holiday parade, a Christmas area in Big Thunder Ranch, holiday fireworks and the Nightmare Before Christmas Haunted Mansion, the park also added a Christmas theme to the Jungle Cruise for the first time ever. Plus, California Adventure has a new Christmas-themed World of Color as well as a Viva Navidad area filled with crafts, picture opportunities and more.
Even Downtown Disney is all decked out for the holidays with their little Christmas town-themed shops.
While it wasn't open yet, they even had an outdoor ice rink with a giant tree in the middle of it. Not bad considering it's not even in the park itself.
When you enter the park and walk past the train station, the first thing you see is the unbelievably huge Christmas tree. In fact, it's over 60 feet tall and has more than 70,000 lights and 2,000 ornaments!
As you walk down Main Street, you quickly notice that all the buildings are decorated with bows, ornaments and more. Even the interior of the shops and the display windows are spruced up. And, of course, there's tons of Christmas merchandise -even whole shops with nothing but holiday goodies. As you can see in the top image, even Sleeping Beauty's castle is covered in snow, icicle lights and ornaments.
I don't know about you guys, but I could certainly live without seeing the crew from The Breakfast Club getting back together ten years after they met in detention on that fateful day. Similarly, I'm pretty glad I never saw Ferris Bueller and Cameron take a day off in their 40's. And these are only two of the many terrible sequel ideas in this great Mental Floss article, although the worst almost certainly has to be the ET sequel that would have featured Elliot getting captured by evil aliens and ET having to rescue him.
