A Plethora Of Punny Tattoos

(Image Link)

People get tattooed for all kinds of reasons, including a love of art and as a , but those brave folk who get ink to entertain others are truly heroes. Funny tattoos come in many forms, but for my money the best kind of funny tattoo is a punny tattoo.

Punny tattoos are the ultimate in visual gag body art, a silly play on words or an idiom brought to life through design, and punny tattoo people are likely to become the life of the party!

Here's a collection of Tough, Raunchy (but totally SFW) and Just Plain Punny tattoos-

The Tough Tats-

Just because a tattoo is punny doesn't mean it loses all tough guy/gal appeal, there's plenty of room for wordplay and wickedness in a punny tattoo.

If you already spend your days pitying fools and buying giant gold chains then you might as well take Mr. Tea along for the ride.

Scumbags and solid citizens alike will adore this Dead Beet tattoo, which is only to be worn by the proudly punny.

Are you a buff baker? There's an incredibly punny tattoo for that!

This May Be the Only Photo of Vincent van Gogh Ever Taken as an Adult

In this image thought to be taken by photographer Jules Antoine, it has been suggested that Vincent van Gogh is seen here, in conversation with Paul Gauguin, Emile Bernard and Félix Jobbé-Duval. André Antoine stands between the artists

This recently discovered 1887 melainotype is what some experts believe to be a photo of Vincent van Gogh, in fact the only photo of him as an adult. Van Gogh hated photography and supposedly refused to sit for any photo portraits throughout his life. The only two known photos of him are taken at ages 13 and 19.

Though the idea that it is indeed van Gogh in the picture is controversial — van Gogh museum in Amsterdam says that it can’t be the artist due to his acknowledged hatred of photo portraits and “because it simply does not look like him” — nevertheless, others disagree. The photo generated enough interest to be sold at auction this past weekend. Though the sale price hasn't been made public, an estimate was between $136,000 and $170,000.

See a close-up of the man thought to be van Gogh in the photograph and read more on this story at Colossal.

Cat Wins Hero Dog Award

Now this is different! For the first time in 33 years, a cat has been given the "Hero Dog" award by a Los Angeles animal shelter. And wait till you hear what she did to win the award: she attacked a dog.

Last year, Tara the cat saw her owner, 6-year-old autistic boy named Jeremy Triantafilo, got attacked by a neighbor's dog. Tara body-slammed the dog and chased it away. The incident was caught on Triantafilo's home security video, which Miss C posted on Neatorama.

"We were so impressed by Tara's bravery and fast action that the selection committee decided that a cat this spectacular should be the National Hero Dog," said Madeline Bernstein, president of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Los Angeles, to WPVI.

As you'd expect, the word "Dog" on the trophy was scratched out and replaced with "Cat."

Often it appears as if mainstream Hollywood filmmakers are out of fresh ideas. Between all of the reboots, comics brought to life, sequels and other new presentations of largely unoriginal content, one has cause to wonder. While the subject has been prior cause for debate, there are always new takes on the not-so-new premise pool in film. Care to opine? Before you do, take a look at this list of 139 movie sequels currently in the works and see if it feeds your thought process.

Why is This 1850s Marble Statue Sculpture Shows a Girl Looking at Her Smartphone?


Photo: Gail Worley / Worleygig

Actually, she's not ... but it's amazing how our modern brain interprets that situation, right?

Gail Worley of the awesome blog Worleygig (seriously, check it out) went to The Met and saw this 1855 marble statue "Indian Girl, or The Dawn of Christianity," by Erasmus Dow Palmer. Like many of us, she immediately thought "doesn't it look like she's checking her Instagram feed or catching up on Tweets?"

It turns out that the object that the Indian Girl was looking at is a crucifix, not a smart phone. Could've fooled us, though.

Teaching Math to a Robot

It started out so innocent, so geeky, so interesting, and then took a dark turn really fast. I love it when webcomic artists send each other guest comics to publish on each other's websites, because that’s an easy way to discover new artists.

“Freeze” is One Fierce Softball Team


(Image credit: Betsy Gregory Photography)

Look at this fierce team of four- and five-year-old softball players! They play ball in Edmond, Oklahoma, and have a great time together. The only thing these girls love more than playing softball is the movie Frozen. So they named their team Freeze. 

(Image credit: Betsy Gregory Photography)

One of the moms, Betsy Gregory, is a photographer. She thought it would be a hoot to take team pictures combining the girls’ two interests. Every one of them already had an Elsa costume, so they donned them for the picture. No, they don’t wear their evening gowns for games. However, they do have hats with blond braids attached! Learn more about this adorable team and see more pictures at Buzzfeed.

Milwaukee Man Messes With Airline Passengers By Painting "Welcome To Cleveland" On Roof

There are merry pranksters all around us, people who enjoy messing with the minds of their fellow human beings and making the world an interesting, albeit a bit chaotic, place to live.

These funsters derive pleasure from pushing our buttons or blowing our minds, and they get a kick out of knowing their pranks tripped someone up, if only for a moment.

Artist and merry prankster from Milwaukee Mark Gubin decided to mess with people flying into his fine city by painting a massive “Welcome To Cleveland" on his roof back in the 1970s, and it's still screwing with airline passengers to this day.

Here's the story behind his pranky paintjob:

According to a 1985 article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, there used to be a Northwest Airlines route from Denver to Cleveland that used Milwaukee as a layover, and the airline was obliged to pre-emptively reassure passengers via the PA system that they should not worry—the plane had not skipped the intermediate destination.

Gubin’s quotations in that article are priceless. One of them goes, “There’s not a real purpose for having this here except madness, which I tend to be pretty good at.” He also said, “It was all tongue-in-cheek, just for fun. Living in the world is not a dress rehearsal. You better have fun with it.” That’s for sure.

Meanwhile in Florida, a Raccoon is Riding on top of an Alligator


Image: Richard Jones

There's a joke in here somewhere!

Richard Jones of Palatka, Florida, and his family were walking along the Oaklawaha River in the Ocala National Forest, when he spotted a racoon on top of an alligator.

Jones told WFTV that his son had startled a raccoon, which stumbled into the water and hopped on top of the alligator nearby. "I snapped a lucky picture right when the gator slipped into the water and before the raccoon jumped off and scurried away. Without the context you'd think the raccoon was hitching a ride across the river. Pretty amazing."

"Romantic of the Year" Boyfriend Impersonated Girlfriend to Take Her Exam

Sure you love your girlfriend. But do you love her enough to dress up as a girl to take her exam?

A twenty-year-old student in Kazakhstan named Ayan Zhademov was caught impersonating his seventeen-year-old girlfriend when he impersonated her to take her university entrance exam.

According to Yahoo News, Zhademov wore a black wig, put on make up and her dress and went to the exam hall. He was foiled when an eagle-eyed exam administrator spotted and questioned him. The boyfriend's cover was blown when he tried to speak in a high voice, but "We suspected it might be another woman that had taken the candidate's place, but we never suspected it was a man that had taken her place. At least not until he started speaking."

Zhademov was fined, but the news went viral in Kazakhstan and he was named "romantic-of-the-year" for trying to help out his girlfriend. A local businessman has stepped in and paid the fine.

A Cat Dress to End All Cat Dresses!


Photo: Jae C. Hong

Crazy cat lady ain't got nothing on this! Photographer Jae C. Hong snapped this photo of Laura Mart roaming around CatConLA (yes, a convention for cat lovers whose motto is "It's like Comic-Con ... but for cat people") in a cat dress.

And what a cat dress it was. As explained by Sue Manning of AP over in this article at SF Gate: the dress is "a ballgown she crafted from a patchwork of 300 fabric cat photos, its skirt several feet wide." And as if that's not enough, Mart also wore a furry hat and a long tail. Purrfect!

That dress just screams "check meowt" now, doesn't it?

Photographer Follows Bride

We’ve posted the photography of Murad Osmann a couple of times before. He’s the guy who travels the world, being led around by his girlfriend Natalia Zakharova. The series has reached its logical climax as he is being led down the matrimonial aisle, in the presence of friends and family. Yes, he can no longer follow his girlfrind because he'll now be following his wife! Her Instagram post is mostly in Russian, but Vera Wang is spelled the same in both languages. You can see more wedding pictures -and even their faces- at Buzzfeed.

98-year-old Chalkboard Drawings Discovered in Oklahoma School

Sometime in 1917, probably in November, Emerson High School in Oklahoma City got new chalkboards. Apparently they installed them right overtop the old chalkboards, which were only discovered this past week as chalkboards are now being replaced with whiteboards. The older chalkboards still had lessons drawn on them, untouched since that time!

“The penmanship blows me away, because you don’t see a lot of that anymore,” Emerson High School Principal Sherry Kishore told the Oklahoman. “Some of the handwriting in some of these rooms is beautiful.”

The writing also gives us a glimpse into the teaching methods used in the early part of the 20th century. See all nine pictures at The Washington Post. -Thanks, Daniel Kim!

Cat Gives Birth to Kittens In Bird Nest

Henry McGauley of County Louth, Ireland, found a stray cat in a tree. That’s not unusual, but the cat was curled up in a bird’s nest where she had birthed four kittens! The white cat is familiar to the neighborhood, and McGauley wife Fiona had fed her before. The nest is about eight feet above the ground.

The couple think the nest may have belonged to a pair of wood pigeons who left it a few days ago and now it has furry, not feathered, squatters. Fiona said she will be moving the happy family onto terra firma as the kittens do not have the required wings to ensure a safe landing if they fall.

Henry chuckled as he said: “I always thought the cat was a bit bird-brained but I never expected her to move into a nest.”

The couple planned to move the kittens out of the tree to prevent them falling out of the nest. -via Arbroath

How to Build a Living Summer Shade Structure

There’s something very relaxing about a rose-covered arch, a pergola festooned with wisteria, or a leafy arbor. Here’s another way to make a shady place to sit and enjoy nature: a willow dome. The structure support itself is alive! Willow branches have a particular feature that makes building a dome or other garden structure fairly easy.   

Willow trees have an unusual trait: freshly cut branches will sprout roots and grow into new trees when merely plunked into the ground and watered. By taking cuttings from an established willow tree, “planting” them strategically and weaving the supple young branches together as they grow, any number of structures—such as a gazebo, pergola, play hut, party dome, sweat lodge, art cave or even a shady area for your livestock—can be created on your land.

Now I really want a willow tree! You can buy cuttings or a kit or even hire someone to build a willow structure for you, but you can also do it yourself with some guidelines from Modern Farmer.
