Spider Cat, Spider Cat, Does Whatever A Spider Cat Does

He might not be able to spin webs, but he can certainly climb just as good as any full-blooded spider, which I'm sure helps him get home on a regular basis.

A Real Life Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle



I'm not sure how old this little critter is or if it has meant a rat who will become its sensei in time, but even if he's not a teenager or a ninja, he's certainly a mutant already. Personally, I'd rather watch him run around than watch the new Michael Bay movie.

Some Seriously Sexy Geek Shoes



Sure Leia wore boots not heels, but if you ladies want to attract your own Han, you might just need to wear pumps here and there. Of course, if you're trying to attract the kind of guys who would actually appreciate some sweet Star Wars shoes, then you probably don't need to worry about that sort of thing quite as much.

The Prettiest Sushi Ever



Who says food can't be art? This stunning nori is cut by lasers to create lovely lacy patterns that each carry a deeper meaning:
Each pattern is meant to symbolize good fortune, happiness, and longevity, etc. and the result is a delicate, unexpected reinvention of the classic Japanese food with a modern twist. The patterns are crisp, and when incorporated into the rolls, they create a sharp contrast between the dark seaweed and the white grains of rice within.

I would think these might just be too pretty to eat, but I'm a sushi fiend, so I know I'd still gobble these up.

As much as I loved Big, I must not have watched it very well because I can't, for the life of me, remember a scene where Tom Hanks' head explodes into a big mess of primary colors.

Cozy Up With One of These Stylish Mario Quilts



When you think about it, quilts are already just a bunch of squares for the most part. That's why they're pretty well adapted to creating 8-bit designs like this great Mario quilt by Etsy user bsayasane. She has a bunch of similar works as well, even though her shop is lacks any inventory right now, you can see more of her work over at The Mary Sue.

Now That's a School to Write Home About



My elementary school was a hideous mess of mauve, yellow and teal that looked like the early nineties threw up all over the walls. Middle school and high school weren't much better although they were sure a lot more bland.

But not all schools are so disgustingly ugly though. Redditor fawcan posted this great photo showing what his school did to the walls in honor of one of the greatest classic video game franchises ever.

People of Walmart is soooo 2008. These days, it's all about the dogs of the people of Walmart -now that's a new whole new level of Walmart craziness. While there isn't a whole website dedicated to this subset of insanity, Pets Lady has filtered through all the animal category of the site to find the best dog pictures ever taken at Walmart. And they are hilarious.

Wearing Your Favorite Website on Your Sleeve



Geek fashions are pretty popular these days, but these high-fashion dresses based on some of the most popular websites around take the concept to a whole new level. Granted, you probably wouldn't want to actually wear any of them the way they are right now, but with a few tweaks, most of them would make great formal wear.

Sweet Potato Fry Cassarole?



Watch out, I'd hate for you guys to slip on the pile of drool I just made while staring at this picture of sweet potatoes covered in marshmallow fluff, cranberries and pecans. It's a Thanksgiving explosion in your mouth that's still suitable as a side order for your turkey burger. Excuse me, I suddenly have some serious munchies.

Penguin's Big Adventure



No, I'm not talking about Peewee's Big Adventure being remade with a penguin in the lead role, although that would be pretty darn awesome. Unfortunately, this is a true tale involving a tiny fairy penguin being stolen from the zoo and chased by both sharks and dogs before being rescued and returned to his home.
On Saturday, three young men reportedly broke into the park and caused all sorts of mishchief, like swimming in the dolphin tank. On their way out, they nabbed the diminutive Dirk, for good measure. Their time with the small bird was apparently short lived, as the group are said to have released Dirk into the nearby Broadwater waterway.

The next day, a couple passing by the area saw Dirk being chased by a shark, which are known to swim around the Broadwater area. To make matters worse, a dog on the shore kept harassing the little bird when he tried to come ashore. The couple alerted SeaWorld officials who quickly responded, bringing the exhausted bird back to his home.

That's a serious adventure for such a small little critter, especially one raised in a zoo and not accustomed to the harsh realities of being a wild creature.

Someone Step Up to Help These Ducklings Step Up


(Video Link)

"Come along children, just come on. No, you can make it. Your brothers and sisters were able to get over the curb you just aren't trying hard enough."

"But moooom, it's too high. Can't we just let this stranger help us?"

"Is that what you're going to do whenever you're in a jam, just wait for a human to help you? You know, that's how your Uncle Arnold ended up becoming duck a la orange."

"But moooooooooom, we can't reach."

"Ok, fine, let the human help you, but don't come crying to me when they want to turn you into dinner for something called Christmas."

How to Brag About Your Zombie Hunting Prowess



Since the zombie apocalypse hasn't quite happened yet, artist Andrew Martin of Monster Caesar Studios went ahead and fabricated this lovely zombie head wall mounted trophy to hang on your wall in the meanwhile. Of course, if when the undead start walking the streets you really ought to take it down, not only because it's silly to brag about accomplishments you haven't actually completed, but also because you won't want to offend the new neighbors across the street who are great, other than that habit of constantly moaning "brains" at three in the morning. For now though, it's certainly a nice home accessory.

The Prehistoric Avengers



Just because dinos had pea-sized brains doesn't mean they didn't know the difference between right and wrong. That's why the dinosaur Avengers were so critical to keeping the streets safe, at least, metaphorically speaking.

The Cutest Geek Dresses In All The Universe



They might not be real dresses, but as a geek gal, I sure wish some ambitious fashion designer would make these adorable drawings by illustrator Robin Kaplan into a reality. In the meanwhile, I guess we'll have to appreciate the great drawings of girls wearing dresses inspired by Doctor Who, Star Wars, Pokemon and more for what they are.

BLT Chips Sound Delicious

The Best Tattoo Cover Up Ever



A reader of Geekologie sent in this great story of how a terrible Edward tattoo obtained during a bet eventually became an awesome Rufio tattoo in what is arguably the greatest tattoo portrait cover up ever.
"OK, so this guy I used to know recently made a deal with his friend that they would choose each other's tattoos and they would each get theirs while being blindfolded. He took his blindfold off to see this -- Edward, from Twilight! Yikes! So later he had it covered up with RUFIOOOO!"

OH HELL YES. I asked my little lady to turn the pictures into an animated gif, but the angles make it look like there's a colored part in Edward that doesn't appear in Rufio. Like I said, that's just the angle.

I know many of you don't like tattoos to start with, but you have to admit, if you're going to get a tattoo on a bet, this cover up is probably one of the best outcomes you could hope for.
