For some reason the argumentative people in the world love to ask us what we think of certain things, like movies, TV shows or music, then berate us about our lack of taste when we don't agree with them.
Oh yeah, that's because they like to argue about really stupid stuff, like movies and TV shows...
Haters are gonna keep on hatin', but now thanks to this comic by Julia Lepetit from Dorkly you can flip the script when they start in on you for *gasp* actually having your own opinion about pop culture!
If you know any horror movie fanatics, or you are one yourself, then you know that die-hard horror fans like to surround themselves with scary stuff, to make them feel more comfortable in polite society.
But horror heads who work in an office are forced to hide their morbid interests while at work, so as not to scare the suits, and therefore must find sly and creative ways to frighten the place up.
It appears snack food fueled bods are the new standard for sexiness in the 21st century, as the swanky old smokin', drinkin' and carousin' set gives way to those who feed our appetites for sugary sweets.
What does all this really mean?
It means Playboy Enterprises, the standard for old school swank, can no longer afford the symbol of their empire, the Playboy Mansion, so Hugh Hefner is selling it to the co-owner of Hostess Brands Daren Metropoulos.
The sale is predicted to set records for most expensive Los Angeles residential sale ever, as it's expected to cost close to $200 million, but the sale comes with one stipulation- 90-year-old Hugh Hefner gets to live in the mansion for the rest of his life.
One of the unfortunate side effects of geek mania is the never-ending stream of crappy licensed products that flow through the stores like pop culture sewage.
This cheaply made crud often passes the in-store visual test only to fall apart when you get it home, literally making it an overpriced piece of trash.
One poor fella named Nick Borelli was left feeling burned when he discovered the awesome looking Infinity Gauntlet oven mitt he bought from Loot Crate melted while pulling a tray of pizza rolls out of the oven.
No wonder Thanos wants to destroy the Earth!
Nick took to Twitter to warn those who possess the Infinity Gauntlet oven mitt against using it for its intended purpose, but as expected the interwebs was more concerned about Nick's pizza rolls than his hands.
Everyone feels a different level of joy while slipping down a slide, typically ranging from blah to bliss, but some people outrightly hate slides, possibly because they got stuck in one when they were kids.
Judging by the reporter's reaction as she slides down in this video she has either never been on a slide in her life and is totally terrified or she's having the time of her life and expresses joy by screaming bloody murder.
Kids can be mighty crafty, which is why you should always keep an eye on your offspring when visiting a place full of breakable and/or valuable stuff, or else you might get stuck paying the bill.
But sometimes kids don't understand why destroying something, such as a LEGO sculpture, is wrong, because they just see that giant statue made of building blocks as a deconstruction challenge.
It took LEGO artist Zhao three solid days (at a cost of around $15k) to build his amazing looking sculpture of Nick from Zootopia, and it was only on display at the LEGO Expo in Ningbo, China for an hour before a kid knocked it down.
Zhao declined compensation from the kid's parents because he feels the kid didn't do it on purpose, but if a rival LEGO artist suddenly sells a statue of Nick from Zootopia we'll know exactly what that little destroyer was up to...
Unless you live near a beach you visit regularly you probably don't think much about beach etiquette, and that's okay when you're not at the beach.
Help lifeguards do their jobs by letting them know in advance if you plan to drown that day
But when you go to the beach, and the black socks under your sandals start to fill up with sand, it's time to get to etiquetting (etiquettery? etiquetness?) so as not to perturb the “locals”.
When using a portable radio or other music-playing device, keep the volume at a low level for all but the most epic of guitar solos
Having lived my entire life twenty minutes from the beach has taught me these “locals” aren't really local at all, but they still take their beach etiquette very seriously, that is, when they're not busy playing frisbee.
Shout “Heads up!” in the half-second before your Frisbee corkscrews into a crowd of sunbathers
Here's another handy tip for ya courtesy of The Onion, and if you decide to disregard those annoying beach "locals" don't forget the ocean is full of locals too...
Always loudly scream “Shark!” while standing at the edge of the water to ensure everyone is aware that so many species of sharks are endangered and will go extinct if not protected from commercial fishing

Therefore you'll either see Marc Clancy's Powdah FX Instagram account as really gross, extremely controversial or one of the coolest social media accounts out there, and that's because Marc is a bit of a sicko.
A photo posted by Marc Clancy (@powdah) on Apr 10, 2016 at 5:49am PDT
The Powdah FX Instagram page is full of photos of Marc's amazing makeup work, much of which involves optical illusions that make the wounds seem more grievous, and some people think his work looks a bit too realistic.
Museums don't post “Please don't touch” signs because they're being snooty jerks, they post these signs hoping museum visitors will have enough smarts to realize the objects on display are often priceless and irreplaceable.
But some visitors can't help but go full blown Mr. Bean when they're among precious artifacts, and the results are just as disastrous as they are on TV, only not as funny.
A man visiting the National Watch and Clock museum in Columbia, Pennsylvania got the bright idea to paw at a priceless clock on the wall and, as expected, disaster ensued.
It's not surprising when celebrities reveal they come from normal or privileged backgrounds, but when they had to overcome really bad situations to become big stars their backstory becomes inspirational.
And speaking of rebirth, young actress Leighton Meester was tied into her family's criminal activity from birth- because Leighton's mom Connie was pregnant with her when she, and three other family members, were arrested for smuggling 1,200 pounds of marijuana into the country.
Leighton's mom gave birth to her while in prison, and her aunt made the Ten Most Wanted list when she escaped from prison, making the crime that is Gossip Girl pale in comparison.
Hollywood makeup artists have perfected the art of transforming actors into any character imaginable, and yet old age makeup remains one of the hardest transformations to pull off.
Between the subtle ways our facial features change as we age, to the fact that applying too many prosthetics makes the actor look like they're wearing a Halloween mask, old age makeup is still the pinnacle of the practical fx industry.
But how many times have Hollywood makeup artists correctly guessed how an actor will look when they grow old?
As this video by YouTuber filminick shows they're usually pretty far off, but that's because they have to exaggerate for the screen, or they're doing a Benjamin Button style character who isn't necessarily supposed to look like the actor.
Still, who could have foreseen this transformation?
If you could understand what the heck that walking furball is saying you'd discover that Chewbacca is actually a pretty funny fellow, and that's no small feat considering Wookiees have very little patience for comedy.
Chewie prefers pun based comedy to slapstick or observational humor, and when he gets rolling with those puns there's no stopping him.
Of course, it doesn't hurt that he's a massive creature with fangs and elite combat skills, and even audiences who don't fully appreciate his brand of comedy laugh when he delivers the punny.
If you get fired from your graphic design job here on Earth it's not the end of the world because there are plenty of other job opportunities out there for you, especially if you have an impressive portfolio.
But if you get fired from your job on Mars you're pretty much screwed, as Jeff the graphic designer discovered in this aptly titled animated short “Fired On Mars” by Nate Sherman and Nick Vokey. (Barely NSFW due to language)
If you saw the article Miss C recently posted about the giant alligator who nonchalantly walked across a golf course in Florida then you know it was only a matter of time before the gator wandered into Jurassic Park.
It has officially been more than twenty years since the internet became mainstream, so now those pioneers who lived through dial-up modems and the AOL disc-aster can talk to the youngsters about the “good old days”.
But heed this illustrated warning from C-SECTION COMICS and keep your ranting under control or you may end up facing assault charges.
To quote Grandmaster Flash “New York, New York big city of dreams, and everything in New York ain't always what it seems”, a perfectly concise summary of what makes New York such a great place to be a misfit.
The New York we know today is far more gentrified, visually scrutinized and whitewashed in the media, and is actually becoming a less nightmarish place to live- if you can afford the rent.
But back when most anyone could afford to live there, circa the 1980s, the New York City streets were a seedy, drug-fueled and very “alive” place.
NYC was truly a 24-hour town- and usually not in the good way.
They may have the faces of angels and the bodies to match but Wasp, Scarlet Witch and Black Widow aren't the golden girls you wish they were. There's something about pretty girls that make men go all gaga and start to see them as untarnished little porcelain dolls, prim and proper and capable of doing no harm. But as annoying as this assumption is these women of action like to use it against guys, and with a little flirtatious smiling and eyelash batting they can butter up any man they're battling, making it so those chumps don't see what's coming...

Kaneda scanned the horizon looking for any sign of his old pal Tetsuo, who had recently gone full nuclear in Neo-Tokyo, but it seems even a being possessed of that much power must implode at some point. And yet that look in Tetsuo's eyes made Kaneda think maybe his old pal was still in that swollen monstrosity somewhere, and if there was hope he could bring Tetsuo home again Kaneda would keep looking and waiting. Suddenly he felt breath on his neck and heard a raspy voice whisper "It's good to see you again, old friend..."

Doug Funnie was finally growing up, and that meant letting go of childhood things like scooters, water balloon wars and his favorite superhero, Quailman. But Quailman was actually part of Doug, an alternate personality who made Doug feel alive whenever he donned the cape and belt crown, so letting go was harder than he'd anticipated. Every time Doug heard someone screaming for help because they dropped their ice cream, or their cat was stuck in a tree, Doug wanted to transform into Quailman and come to the rescue, but he knew if he didn't stop playing now he might not ever make it to adulthood...

Chickens are the most underrated of all magical creatures, and even though we eat their eggs and then eat the chicken when we're tired of staring at their beaky faces and beady little eyes we still don't see them as that big a deal. But an old lunatic from the Ozarks once told me that if you pick up a chicken and it doesn't cluck all day long you'll have good luck...or maybe it was pick it up and have good cluck, I dunno, it was a long time ago and there aren't many chickens where I'm from...
Spread the word about the power of poultry with this Good Cluck t-shirt by Sophie Corrigan, it's sure to make people want to pick up chickens wherever you go!
Politicians do all kinds of promising and talking about solutions and strategies, but take it from the most famous Mon Calamari in the galaxy- if you think of everything as a trap you'll never get caught in a trap.

So you can throw away your vote on some other Rebel rabble rouser or crackpot in a helmet, or you can vote for Ackbar and keep the Alliance from getting caught in a trap!

Spending the day doing actual farming makes you tired and dirty, but when you're virtual farming on your SNES console the fun never ends and you never break a sweat!

They said Homer would never be able to master the mystical arts and become Springfield's number one sorcerer, that he was too fat and too dimwitted to learn the mystical and martial arts at the same time, but Homer showed them, or did he? Suddenly Homer had this really cool cape that fluttered around, and he had somehow grown a wizardly goatee overnight, which was pretty magical in itself. But Homer's most magical feat was his strange new ability to make giant glowing donuts hover around his hand, which people quickly realized was just a side effect of Homer reaching into the reactor core to grab a donut that had fallen in...
