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...

When you catch a ride on the Express make sure you hold on tight, because the new automotus mechanicus professor, a wily haired fellow named Dr. Brown, has made a few modifications. The train is now able to reach a rip roaring 88 miles per hour, and when the fluxus capacitorus are engaged the train is actually able to travel through time.

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!

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!
When you visit video game park you've gotta bring along some 8-bit crumbs so you can feed the pixels. It's a singularly strange experience, and the glow of their little blocky bodies fills the night sky with a green haze that makes the whole park look otherworldly.

It's springtime, and that means people (and raccoons) across the galaxy will be growing some new leafy friends in their guardian gardens. Rocket is the luckiest gardener in the galaxy, because he gets to grow a Groot! When growing a dancing Groot it's important to keep his soil covered in moon moss to help his roots retain moisture, and add fresh soil to his pot as needed because his dancing can get a bit dirty.

There are inventors who create life saving technology, inventors who change the way we live and those who change what happens to our bodies after we die. And then there are those who invent things that make the world a more colorful place, inventions that are offbeat in look and purpose, but actually get the job done...whatever that job may be.
Here are 10 inventions that may look a bit odd, but they definitely work!

Standing around all day can be hard work, but most portable chairs are either too long to carry around or not comfortable enough to satisfy your sitting needs.
Enter the Miesrolo Chair, which rolls up like a bundle of wood when not in use and rolls out quickly to form a seat when it's time to take a load off! It's not as light as most portable chairs, but sometimes we must make sacrifices to look this cool:
Fast fooding on the go has become far more convenient thanks to the Style Auto Back Seat Organizer With Tray, aka the Backseat Burger Caddy, created so you can sit down to a decent dinner in your car.
The burger caddy has a fold out tray for your burger, and separate compartments for your fries, drink and even sections for sauces and a fruit pie. Your pants may not fit around your waist as well as this caddy fits inside your car, but at least you can sit down to a decent meal while on the go!
The troopers enjoyed riding their speeder bikes so much that they decided to form a club, even though it was strictly forbidden by the Empire and could have resulted in them all getting force choked. But they were born to ride free, so neither threat of death by Dark Lord nor hostile planetary environment could keep them from banding together and riding high across the forest moon. Soon they'd be travelling across the stars again to take part in another war, but for today the Black Empire Biker Club would ride high and become an outlaw force to be reckoned with...
Dress like a geeky outlaw with this Black Empire Biker Club t-shirt by Brinkerhoff, it's the ultimate way to show your sci-fi affiliation!
Cartoons for kids are carefully edited and reviewed to make sure mature content doesn’t make it on the air, but sometimes the censors miss something inappropriate, causing a cartoon crapstorm to kick up on the interwebs.
Recently an episode of Nickelodeon’s Oggy and the Cockroaches aired containing a different kind of easter egg- this image of a topless cartoon character hanging on the wall in the background:
I went ahead and edited the image so as not to incur the wrath of any parental units, so if you want to see the unedited scene containing the nude you'll have to click here or the link below.
The episode was immediately pulled from circulation, and now some smutty Nicktoon animator has some 'splainin' to do!
Sign vandalism is so, so wrong…unless it leads to more hilarious pictorial content for the internet!
Those who vandalize with spray paint and such are often trying to make a name for themselves in the street art scene, but the anonymous people who vandalize signs are just trying to bring some funny to our otherwise boring lives.
These unsung heroes aren’t worried about fame or Banksy-esque fortune- they’ve spotted signs and plaques that are a few words or images short of perfection and simply filled in the blanks.
Sign vandals we salute you, so long as your work benefits the good humor of all mankind!
The odds of spotting a celeb when you’re anywhere but a star studded major event or an industry hotspots like Los Angeles or New York are slim, and yet people think they’re meeting celebrities all the time.
In fact, they're so convinced the person is a celebrity that they pose for pictures with a random person who kinda sorta has a famous face, then they post those hilarious pictures online for all to see.
Guys who grow beards know they're not just a fashion statement- they're an extra set of hairy hands ready to make your life way easier to live. The path to enlightenment may not begin and end with a beard, but it's no coincidence that those who go out seeking enlightenment end up growing a long and bushy beard before they reach nirvana. We're not saying you have to grow a beard to be wise, but if you ever meet a bearded lady sit down and listen to what she has to say, because the beard can teach you a lot about life!
Bring some hirsute happiness to your geeky wardrobe with this Beard Mantra t-shirt by Amanda Flagg, and keep your fashionable life shaveless and fancy-free!
Judging whether someone is attractive or not used to be thought of as wholly subjective, but scientists have discovered that there is a particular facial feature layout which people across the globe find most attractive.
That’s not to say there isn’t any subjectivity involved in judging someone attractive or ugly, because sometimes factors like personality, voice and personal hygiene habits can throw textbook attractiveness in the trash.
Speaking of trash- who do you think of as the most attractive character in video game history? If you said Pac-Man you might need glasses, but if you said the rad mutant Gob from Fallout 3 then chances are you meet a lot of your dates in or around dumpsters!
