When a weird-looking wallaby joey was born at the Linton Zoo, keepers knew he was special right away and even named him ALF (Alien Life Form). What they didn't know was that little ALF would soon grow up to be an absolutely stunning albino wallaby.
Though he's already half-grown now, he's a bit of a mama's boy and still tries to climb into mom's pouch for a little comfort.
It's barbecue season again, and while most people limit their grilling to meats and a few veggie sides, why not go all out and cook your dessert on the grill? As some one who has cooked all variety of things on the grill while waiting for the coals to cool down, I can tell you that grilled berries, stone fruits and pineapple are absolutely amazing. Add a little ice cream or chocolate and you've got yourself a dessert. I've also cooked donuts over a campfire (I really like roasting things on an open flame) and can assure you they would also be heavenly on the grill.
Count me as one of the many people totally over Steven Moffat's rule of Doctor Who. If you still aren't convinced that his story lines have become totally ridiculous, then check out the random Doctor Who plot generator at Us vs Th3m. Here's one I just created:
A flashback sequence introduces us to the Paradise Faction homeworld, but the Sonic Screwdriver picks up a gravity anomaly. The Doctor, Clara, and Clara’s two charges have tough choices to make about the Macra. The Doctor’s tears save the day. Katy from CBeebies features in a flashback sequence.
Thursday night, New York City residents who are fans of Game of Thrones were able to enjoy A Feast of Fire and Ice at Percy's Tavern, thanks to the bar's owner, Larry Watson, and Westeros-themed bakery owner Claudia Smith. The event featured a costme contest, dead boars, goblets of poppy milk, fortune telling and more.
Victoria McNally of Geekosystem was there and her pictres from the event are the next best thing to going in person.
Game of Thrones might be all too serious in book and TV forms, but when approached by comic book artist Azad Injejikian, the characters become a never ending source of laughs. You can follow the zany stories of the Starks, Lannisters and the rest over at Comics of Ice & Fire (aka the link).
If anything is better than chocolate chip cookies and milk, then it's chocolate chip cupcakes with chocolate chip cookie dough in the middle and milk-flavored frosting made with sweetened condensed milk. Don't forget to decorate them with a small cookie or milk-carton candy on top.
While he hasn't been featured on Neatorama yet, Lentil is a precious little French bulldog who was born with a cleft palate. He soon became an internet superstar (he now has over 80,000 Facebook fans) and generous donors everywhere chipped in to help the little guy get a much-needed surgery that would allow him to eat without human assistance.
He received the surgery on the 28th and he's already looking world's better and is already eating kibble all by himself! You can read all about the surgery at the link or keep up on his recovery on his Facebook page.
When Crafty Lil' Thing's daughter wanted to participate in the costume contest at her school's sock hop, she insisted on wearing a poodle skirt inspired by Doctor Who. Originally, she asked her mother to make one with a Dalek, but then she realized there was nothing more suitable for a poodle skirt than K-9.
The Alamo Drafthouse might just be the most famous independant theater chain in the world and that isn't going to change any time soon, especially now that they started making limited edition signature wines based on The Silence of the Lambs. Personally, I'm particularly interested in "The Cannibal," which is said to pair very well with liver and fava beans.
Well, Tony does have an arc reactor near his heart, so maybe he can relate to this more than the more traditional version of the phrase. Etsy seller kayleeksauvey sells these in every women's size available, so for the ladies who are constantly jealous of Pepper Potts, this might be a great way to tell Tony how you feel.
Better not light too many candles on this birthday cake or those eggs might hatch...and while that would make a pretty sweet birthday present for Reddit user Trustysidekick, it could also be a major party killer when the guests start to flee out of fear.
Can you imagine going through a whole Marvel movie without seeing Stan Lee? Or a whole season of Doctor Who without someone asking "Doctor Who?" This list of the longest running gags on i09 will certainly make you nod your head as you remember all of the stupid jokes. Sure these jokes have become cliche and over-played, but that only makes them funny in other ways.
If the sloth motto is "live slow, die whenever," then Chewbacca here (yes, that really is his name) is an ideal sloth in every way. After all, why bother getting up to find and grab your food when you can just reach over and much away while laying back?
If you think planking, condom snorting, the cinnamon challenge and other modern trends are a statement about the stupidity of modern man, then you need a history lesson. Amongst some of the stupidest trends in history are purposefully making teeth look terrible, arsenic medical treatments, and year-long dance marathons.
The photo above features a few young, hip guys hunkering together, which at least wasn't a dangerous past time like many of the others on this list.
Beer is great and all, but don't you ever wish it could better remind you of your favorite pop group of the nineties made up of three brothers? Well, now you can have it all with Mmmhops, a beer crafted by the boys of Hanson with a name based on their one big, extremely catchy hit.You can catch a viewof the new product in the upcoming Hangover 3 film.
On the upside, at least part of the profits will be going to victims of the recent Oklahoma tornado.
I don't know that this version of Link would really be able to save Princess Zelda, but he sure could melt even the coldest heart with his cuteness. Of course, it's dangerous to go alone, so I'd like to take him.
This image would be great enough if it were just a goofy Photoshop, but the fact that it's actually a screen capture from a real Die Hard 16-bit video game you can play online for free just makes it that much more awesome.
Yes, for only $2500, you too can own your own personal gaming chamber so you can escape all those distractions like friends, family, bathroom trips, etc. Hey, at least it has A/C and heat so you can feel comfortable in your own filth.
What happens when the older Ganguro Harajuku style evolves into something that looks like Jersey Shore and Nicki Minaj? The newest Japanese fashion trend, of course, which is known as gal. Apparently, the girls who wear the style are known as Black Diamond.
Personally, I like how they still can't stop from using Hello Kitty in their outfits.
Arizona Tea has partnered with Shaq to release a new line of cream sodas. They'll all come in 20 ounce "tall boy" cans because everything related to Shaq must be bigger...and because that's the standard size of Arizona teas I guess.
Personally, I'm going to get the strawberry because, let's face it, nothing makes you want to chug a beverage more than Shaq sticking his tongue out at you.
While many people were heading the their family's house for Easter or Passover last weekend, plenty of nerds, including myself, skipped the holidays and instead celebrated pop culture at WonderCon, the smaller cousin of the San Diego ComicCon. While there was plenty to see and do at the convention, as usual, one of the highlights was the cosplay. Here are some of the highlights from this year's event.
As the convention was right next door to Disneyland, there was an even bigger proportion of kids compared to the average convention, which also meant even more adorable kids cosplaying. This little one was an AT-ST complete with a built-in sound effect from the film that played every time he took a step.
This youngster made quite an impressive Princess Leia, complete with a plush R2-D2 backpack and yarn braids.
Rainbow Brite was quite cute, but it was her friends Twink and Starlite that really took center stage. Twink was especially adorable as she was just so darn proud of those sparkly shoes.
Tiny Daryl was there, ready to take care of any roving zombies, including those in his own family.
Just like there are more kids than usual because Disneyland is next door, there are also more Disney character cosplays. This Belle was particularly adorable because she was so excited about everything going on at the event -especially her sonic screwdriver and the giant cow at one of the booths.
Ever wonder what one of those paintings from The Haunted Mansion would look like in real life? Well, here's the girl who walks on the tightrope over the pool of aligators cosplaying for Bat's Day at Disneyland.
