Pixelated invaders from space started coming down in rows, launching rectangular laser beams at the Earth and breaking our stuff to an 8-bit beat. The Bit Wars had begun, and now it fell to Earth's mightiest heroes to defend the planet and repel those super square space invaders. Street fighters abandoned their matches mid-round and began lending a hand wherever needed, because even though the Invaders could defend against our bullets and missiles they had no idea how to block one of Ken's mighty dragon punches!

Clara's cowbell clangin' skills are legendary, and even though she's been asked to go on the road by everyone from Mickey to Mick Jagger Clarabelle's a country girl at heart, and she prefers to play her cowbell for her boot scooting friends and family back home on the range.

There are a legion of people out there who take surveys, undergo psychological tests, record search engine rankings and transcribe audio files for a living, taking whatever job comes up on the Mechanical Turk job list.
These people are part of Amazon’s Mechanical Turk crowdsourcing program, a place where people are paid paltry sums to complete HITs (Human Intelligence Task) and build up a feedback rep. The work is often mind numbing, and generally pays a buck or two an hour, depending on how fast you can work and how lucky you get with the queue.
Have you ever heard of the Turkers? There's about a half million of 'em online, and every day they're turking for a living.
Paget Brewster and Keith David have joined the cast, the budget is still big enough to afford plenty of the fantastic fantasy segments we’ve come to expect from the show, and Dan Harmon is back in the driver’s seat.

Some people shoot for the moon, meaning they decide to blow up the moon and become the greatest super villain in the world, but for some there's nothing better than the life of a henchman.

Jake uncovered a portable gaming unit one day while digging around in a particularly stinky cheese sinkhole, and since he'd always wanted a little BMO of his own he decided to take it home and see if it still worked. He took his time and cleaned it up then popped in a few batteries, and the LMO unit sprang to life. At first Finn and Jake thought little LMO might be a good addition to their adventure family, but after hearing the ABC song for the thousandth time they realized bringing him home had been a huge mistake. And then they discovered that LMO had been built without a power switch...
Bring some annoyingly cute animated color to your geeky wardrobe with this LMO t-shirt by Minilla, it's sure to tickle your fellow cartoon fans!
The Dude may live in a complicated world, and he may be surrounded by all kinds of things that would ordinarily complicate life, but he's about as simple as they come. Now that don't mean he's a dummy, no sir, that's about the opposite of what he is. Lebowski can't be explained with words, he can't be figured out that easy, and that's why he's just the guy to teach us all how to take it easy. That fella's tellin' us all to simplify, and I reckon that ain't such a bad idea after all...

Marty's life was starting to feel like a waking dream, and the years he'd spent traveling through time were starting to mess with his head...and his eyesight. He began to see the world as a perfectly pixelated place, and people as a bunch of squares walking around trying to keep it together. Marty walked the streets in a daze, most definitely not feeling McFly, and then he ran into himself outside the 80s themed diner...

We all know that Japanese artists and designers create some of the strangest stuff on the planet, and that their creative efforts make the world a much more colorful place to live. Their whimsical and eyecatching designs seem to shine brightest when they're brought to life in toy form, and then we not only get to look at their wacky designs- we get to play with them!
Here are ten weird and wonderful toys created in the Land of the Rising Sun-
Teaching kids how to properly brush their teeth is hard since we don’t have flip top heads, and that set of plastic choppers sitting on your dentist’s desk is downright creepy, so a puppet with a full set of teeth makes sense.
But did the final product have to be so creep-tastically adorable? I don't know if I want to brush its teeth or burn it with fire!
Remember those little green soldiers who patrolled the toybox when you were a kid? Well, I think these Fat Cute Soldiers ate those little green troopers and still had room for dessert! Part social commentary, part throwback toy, the Fat Cute Soldiers are 8 kinds of awesome!
Master Chief grew tired of all the killing and planet hopping, so he decided to reexplore one of his interests from his pre-Spartan days- cooking. He took some time off and started developing recipes that all beings could appreciate, and with a little Navy funding he was ready to share his culinary skills with the universe. However, Chief is not a creative guy, so when it came to branding he simply adopted the name of an old chef from the 20th century, dubbing his brand Chief Boyardee. His food products soon made their way onto store shelves across the galaxy, and people started gobbling up Chief's pasta, until his sales took a hit due to an unexpected outbreak of Sanghelian ecoli...
Feed your need for geeky fashion with this Chief Boyardee t-shirt by Dan Capitumini, it's the tasty way to make your fellow gamers smile with delight!
It seems like people have finally stopped posting Ice Bucket Challenge videos online, and the trend appears to be truly dead, but as soon as one internet trend disappears another one pops up to take its place.
The newest trend, which hasn't caught on quite like the Ice Bucket, is the Twizzler Challenge, which calls for a couple to share a Twizzler, Lady and the Tramp style.
The Twizzler Challenge is supposed to raise awareness about autism and raise money for charities such as New York Collaborates For Autism, but it's also creating some rather creepy moments on live television.
Check out this way too closeup capture of Regis Philbin and Hoda Kotb doing some Twizzlin' on the TODAY show, is this really something you want to see before you've had your morning coffee?
If you know somebody who is thinking about taking the Twizzler Challenge and posting a video online do them, and the world, a favor and convince them to simply give to charity instead!
The war didn't take place a long, long time ago, and it all went down way closer to Earth than you'd expect, but the self proclaimed Lord of the Stars is an 80s child so he couldn't resist the urge to reenact his favorite movie poster with his new friends. A Nova corps sattelite was on the scene to capture the tableau, and the resulting image was immediately printed on posters and t-shirts for distribution throughout the galaxy. Soon the Guardians were more famous than Alien Elvis, and fans across the cosmos were clamoring to get their own Guardians Far Away t-shirt, even though they didn't get the reference...
Bring some intergalactic goodness to your geeky wardrobe with this Guardians Far Away t-shirt by BadEye, and become a force for nerd fashion!
The Jimi Hendrix song Foxy Lady is one of those iconic rock tunes that makes you wonder whether there’s an actual lady behind the reference.
Jimi was surrounded by adoring female fans in his brief yet bountiful life, but one lady in particular rocked the lives of Hendrix and many other musicians in the 1960s, and inspired many of the songs found on the album Electric Ladyland.
If you go to Ikea hoping to learn a little Swedish then you’d better grab a Swedish dictionary before you go, because many of the words used as Ikea product names appear to have nothing to do with the product itself. The rocking moose pictured above is called EKORRE, meaning squirrel, a fun reference to Rocky & Bullwinkle and the only non-WTF translation on the list.
Here’s the FNISS trash can- with a name meaning “giggles”it's guaranteed to be the most fun waste receptacle you've ever owned!
And here’s the UPPENBAR, which is the "obvious" choice for measuring out deciliters of lingonberry sauce for your Swedish meatballs!

Loki had come to Earth in female form far before his goody-two-shoes brother Thor, and he'd enjoyed the experience immensely. The Trickster had hidden his male body for safe keeping while he took the body of Thor's bride Lady Sif for a ride, and aside from the extra weight on his chest he felt free again, free to sow the seeds of chaos like a god reborn. Then came the day Loki was forced to give up the lovely locks and feminine mystique and return to his original form, the day Sif got to see, much to her horror, what Loki had done to her body while she was gone...

These two are simply smashing, and they've both had their share of run ins with that moustachioed plumber Mario, but maybe they're just misunderstood. Bowser doesn't get out and around the other denizens of the Mushroom Kingdom much, so maybe he just doesn't know how to act around a princess. And Kong- well, his first name is Donkey and he wears a necktie, so it's a safe bet that's where his troubles began. One thing's for certain when it comes to these two though- they pack one heck of a punch!

The Internet can be a mighty dangerous place to go exploring, and even though it seems like the websites full of smut and hackers planting viruses would be the dangerous bits the real dangers lie in the fingertips of predators. The predators have been hunting online since the very beginning, finding it even easier to camouflage their true intentions when the human's they chat with in forums and on social media have no idea who Yauta1987 actually is!
Warn the world of the Internet's true dangers with this Online Predator t-shirt by tomburns, and help keep your online connection, and your spinal cord, intact.
The beagle had been telling fantastic tales about high flying adventures and dangerous dog fights for years, but Chuck and the gang thought it was all just a pile of peanuts. Then one day they found his doghouse empty, and Woodstock delivered a note. It said that Brown's beagle had returned to the skies due to the reappearance of the Red Baron, and that if he wasn't home for dinner his bowl should be brought inside so his kibble wouldn't get soggy. Lucy and Linus said the whole thing sounded like a scam, but then Charlie showed them the Royal Flying Corps letterhead...

The Peeps brand is so popular that they now make little puffs of fluff in shapes for nearly every holiday, and every day over 5 million Peeps brand treats are made in the Just Born factory in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
What is it about those cute little marshmallow treats that make them such an enduring part of our candy loving lives?
Is it the fact that Bob Born's recipe for Peeps has remained virtually unchanged for over 60 years? Or maybe it's the fact that, despite the core recipe staying the same, Just Born has been creating new flavors and varieties that are just as delicious as the original.
Whatever the allure, one thing's for certain- it wouldn't be Easter without a bunch of Peeps staring at ya with those cute little carnauba wax eyes!
People often think of Evel Knievel as a madman because he spent over 25 years performing death defying stunts on the back of a motorcycle, and yet as it turns out Evel was quite mad before he became a famous daredevil.
A new documentary called Being Evel tells the true story behind the larger-than-life persona, and shows how Evel lived up to his bad boy title in every way.
From the time he kidnapped his future wife (twice, in fact) to the time he waved a gun in George Hamilton's face, forcing the actor to read from the screenplay for Knievel's 1971 biopic, there's no denying Evel was one colorful character!
In the 1970s kids shows became totally far out in both style and subject matter, full of psychedelic characters and imagery that must've felt just right to the offspring of the Flower Power generation.
Here's a collection of ten kid oriented TV shows from the 70s, which is nowhere near exhaustive and is purposely lacking obvious shows like Sesame Street and The Elecric Company.
As you peruse the list you’ll see the name of two siblings come up on this list many times with good reason- Sid & Marty Krofft have cornered the market on strange kid’s TV shows ever since they brought their own brand of psychedelic TV magic to the small screen with H.R. Pufnstuf (1969).
The Bugaloos flew right into the hearts of kids who loved fantasy when they made their television debut in 1970. Starring a cast of British teens (who were also conveniently a four piece band) the Bugaloos were able to fly in their stylish insectoid outfits, and constantly avoided being captured by the evil Benita Bizarre.
The Wombles are the original puppet environmentalists, little pointy nosed critters who collected and recycled trash dumped by humans in order to help keep the environment clean.
This British oddity is based on a series of novels by Elisabeth Beresford, and the Wombles encouraged kids to be more environmentally friendly, thereby becoming the original spokespuppets for going green!
His big mouth had struck again, and even though he spent his days smiling and pretending to be John Smith he was a joker through and through. This jokerness messed with his mind, and what other people saw as a nightmare he saw a dream come true. His favorite dream- the one in which a giant bat swooped down upon him from above and drained him dry, and as he lay dying he watched the bat's face turn from black to clown white as the transformation into joker began...
Bring a new wave of geeky awesomeness to your wardrobe with this The Dreams In Which I'm Dying t-shirt by Rocky Davies, it's a fun way to spread smiles wherever you go- no joker gas necessary!
The ninja turtles had been hearing noises in the sewers for quite some time, but they were normally just the sounds of fluids sloshing and Splinter's kin scurrying. This time the noises were different, as if made by a human foot, and they came to the realization that the sewers may be haunted. They called April down from her two bedroom mansion to help them explore the sewer system, but aside from a few of their fellow mutants and a vat full of ooze they found nothing of note. And then things started to creak and groan, and an otherworldly voice told them they were all doomed to live as teenage turtles for the rest of eternity...
Bring a masterful mashup to your geeky wardrobe with this The Haunted Sewer t-shirt by Ninjaink, it's the fun way to show your love of sewers haunted by mutants and mansions haunted by goofy ghosts!
The city was under attack by clown faced forces, so the police commissioner called for the bat signal to be lit, but some bumbling patrolman had misplaced the bat and instead used the most terrifying of all signals- the Cthulhu signal! They smelled the Great Old One as he approached the city, a heady stench of sulphur and rotten fish, and everywhere he went citizens lost their minds at the sheer scale of his horrible magnificence. The clowns who were once terrorizing the city now found themselves in the same boat as the rest of the populace, realizing that not even a superhero could save them now...
Summon forth some geeky style with this The Cthulhu Signal Is On t-shirt by Legendary Phoenix, and watch your fellow Lovecraft fans light up when they see you wearing this cool shirt!
She purred with delight at the way he looked in his bad kitty vest, that is once she'd moved past the initial revulsion, and she made him want to put his tom catting days behind him. They were from vastly different sectors of the galaxy- she was born in a castle with a golden litterbox and he tended to go wherever he pleased, and yet they found each other in the middle of an intergalactic war. Han Meowlo was one cool kitty, the star of his own smug smuggler show, but something about her hair buns and that twinkle in her eye made him want to say "I love you too, you're purr-fect" but instead he whispered "I know."
Spread some geeky warmth through your star system with this A Mew Hope t-shirt by Miski, and use the force of cuteness to melt the hearts of your fellow fans!
