You don't have to be daft, dorky or deranged to draw comic strips, but it certainly doesn't hurt.
And those artists who are able to channel their particular brand of madness into their medium often become known for their fantastically freaky view of the world.
Spanish cartoonist Joan Cornellà has no problem letting his freak flag fly in his twisted (and often NSFW) comic strips, and looking at the world through Joan's eyes means finding magic in every nook and cranny.
Joan Cornellà's comics have earned him a place in the hearts of people who like to stare at funny stuff then laugh about it later when they see a shape or shadow that reminds them of his offbeat strips!
Take these reactions to the news that Harriet Tubman will be replacing Andrew Jackson on the twenty dollar bill- they're some of the best reactions money can buy but they're free for an (un)limited time!
So you wanna learn to ride a shooting star? Well you'd better make sure you're feeling light on your feet that day because shuttling along at a hundred miles an hour on a star ain't as easy as Kirby makes it look. That little superstar can do things we can only dream about, and it doesn't matter how full he is when he steps onto that star because ring-a-ding-ding, that little pink thing can really fly, baby!
Send spirits soaring with this Ride A Shooting Star t-shirt by FortuneCake, it's the ultimate way to show the world that Kirby really makes you swoon!
The names IKEA uses for their products may seem strange, and the direct translations may be a bit off at times, but most IKEA names are perfectly appropriate for the product.
Take the BILLY bookcase and ELLY kitchen tea towels for example- the designs are supposed to be youthful and whimsical, so they were given popular names for kids.
The DUKTIG line translates to “capable”, which is how kids feel when they play with the tiny kitchen set, and this colorful plastic dinnerware below is appropriately named KALAS, the Swedish word for “party”.
It can be a real pain to live in a house with pipes that are constantly clogging up, and unless you know your way around the underside of a sink those clogs mean paying more money and calling a plumber.
But there are lots of helpful tutorials and DIY videos online that can help you avoid having to call in help, like this visual demonstration of how to unclog a bathroom sink from This Old House.
Your world may already be full of colorful characters and terrifying monsters, and depending on where you live these critters may make great subjects for photos, if they'll stand still long enough to take a pic.
But if your town/village/city is relatively critter free congratulations on living in a good place! And enjoy these images by animator Jasper StAubyn West that show what living in a literal world full of monsters would look like.
Jasper created these monsterrific images as part of a “doodle a day” project for the month of March, and here's hoping he brings them back soon because they totally rock!
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of the most beloved musicals of all time, especially to those who like shows with a little more bite, but when the iconic movie came out in 1975 it was overlooked by critics.
However, everyone who worked on the production knew it was pure magic, and all the fun taking place on the set and behind the scenes was captured on a series of now historic Polaroid photos.
These precious Polaroids (original photographer unknown) were used in The Rocky Horror Scrapbook then later purchased from a private collection by Larry Viezel.
Trouble is, a few of them fell out of Larry's bag at a New York City subway platform back in 2011, and could have been lost forever if a guy named Brady Marter hadn't shared them on Collectors Weekly:
Founds these on the platform of the C train in TriBeCa in 2011. They are photos of Tim Curry and the cast of Rocky Horror during the making of the film. Some have writing on the back and Frankenfurter kissed the back of one.
This video by WatchMojo.com shows us the good side of As Seen On TV, reminding us how the Fun Loom helped our kids get crafty, the PedEgg smoothed out our calloused feet, and the Mighty Putty fixed our broken lives.
Shows like Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and Game Of Thrones love to kill off characters, but when a supporting character is killed on a sitcom like Seinfeld or The Big Bang Theory people start to wonder why.
George's fiancee Susan was killed off because actress Heidi Swedberg lacked the comedy chops to keep up with the Seinfeld cast, so she didn't make the cut.
But sadly Howard Wolowitz's mom on The Big Bang Theory, who was never actually seen on camera, was killed off because actress Carol Ann Susi died of cancer.
Carol had previously appeared on Seinfeld as the unemployment office worker's daughter, Carrie, with whom George went out on a few dates to avoid losing his benefits.
Apparently some people still love to twerk, and those butt shakin' fools are willing to risk wetting themselves in public, spinal injury or worse to shake what their maker gave them to a funky bass beat.
But elementary school teacher “Miss Clarissa” clearly didn't have a clue that her love of the twerk would cost her a job she loved even more.
“Miss Clarissa” was fired when this video of her competing in and winning a twerking contest in Cabo San Lucas during Spring Break was shared online.
She was forced out of her job by school administrators who found her off campus behavior unacceptable:
"They didn't give me any other option at my school than to resign," she told the publication. "I felt I was being attacked and put under pressure. I didn't know what else to do apart from leave as quickly as I could."
This is just further proof we live in an oversensitive world that places too much importance on social media posts, and if teachers aren't allowed to blow off steam in their private time it's the students who will suffer.
Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror when you're buzzed or totally blotto and thought “gee, my face looks kinda funny right now!”
You may have dismissed this change in appearance as merely the product of inebriation, but this photo series by Marcos Alberti shows us that drinking actually makes our faces more fun.
That's because the alcohol in our favorite alcoholic beverages (in this case wine) takes away our inhibitions and allows us to stretch our faces into super silly expressions, thereby eliciting laughs.
It's all really scientific and related to chemistry and biology and endorphins and such, but this is all you really need to take away from Marcos Alberti's photo series- three glasses of wine is enough to loosen anyone up!
The iconic pantheon of superheroes who form the Holy Trinity of the DC Universe suffer from an identity issue they've never been able to outgrow- their equally iconic costumes.
If Batman doesn't have his cape or pointy-eared cowl, if Supes doesn't have a cape or an S on his chest, and if Wonder Woman is caught without either her bracers, tiara or lasso these heroes somehow lose their power.
Artists have tried to come up with new outfits to make them look more like normal folks, but they're not normal- they're super, so any wardrobe change should really reflect that.
That's why two of the three redesigns created by Stephen Byrne work so well- Batman becomes a bit more of an agent or contractor but still retains his batty spirit and still looks intimidating.
And Wonder Woman looks like an urban adventurer ready for action, still regal, still a warrior but less of a princess.
Supes in jeans and a t-shirt, on the other hand, just doesn't do it for me.
It's a bummer dogs can't go grocery shopping with us because they'd be great at picking out snacks, although they'd probably force us to buy a cartload of both real and squeaky steaks so maybe we're better off.
But if and/or when grocery stores allow dogs to come along they'll ride comfortably in a cool dog friendly shopping cart, like this one introduced by Gianfranco Galantini in his grocery store Unes.
Secret Service agents have to do pretty much anything the Prez tells them to do, like carry all of Jimmy Carter's luggage or shield Lyndon B. Johnson while he pees outside (and on the guy's leg), so that's a start.
The message begins “Hey, Obama, I know you have a lot on your mind these days … I’ve decided to give you a little advice after seeing you lost in thought before my portrait during a recent Easter Prayer Breakfast.”
Their (Abe's?) "advice" is related to Obama's efforts to rid the world of nuclear weapons, stating that it's "a mockery to the entire world" for the U.S. to keep their arsenal and make other countries get rid of theirs.
"Abe" goes on to praise Obama while criticizing "himself":
“Hey, Obama, it’s the 21st Century,” the letter says. “The tactic by past American presidents, including me, who deceived the people … is outdated. That doesn’t work now. The world doesn’t trust an America that doesn’t take responsibility for what it says.”
This unsolicited advice comes a few years after the state media called Obama a "monkey" and Senator John Kerry a "wolf with a hideous lantern jaw", so something tells me the Ghost of Abe Lincoln had nothing to do with this letter...
The feline pet population has it way too easy- they're asked to do nothing more than catch mice, eat on the floor, poop in a box and allow humans to dote on them, which is why all the working dogs are so jealous.
But this video by Sho Ko seems to indicate that our cats are actually overworked, and with all they do in a day it's a wonder they have time to squeeze in sixteen hours of sleep!
Game of Thrones, and the book series that inspired the show A Song Of Ice And Fire, clearly take place in a fictional world of fantasy, since there are White Walkers, giants, fire breathing dragons and such.
However, the political conflict that serves as the heart of the main storyline is inspired by real history.
Coming-of-age movies are supposed to have relatable characters that make us compare what they're going through in the film to our own lives, but that rarely happens when you're a weirdo.
Growing up as one of the odd ducks in the pond made me relate more to movies like Harold and Maude, Time Bandits and Quadrophenia than the traditional Hollywood fare, so Submarine by Ben Stiller and Richard Ayoade was right up my alley.
And lastly, if you're looking for comedy, poignancy and a slice of blue collar life set in North London then you've gotta check out Mike Leigh's fantastic funky family film from 1991 called Life Is Sweet.
Depression level sadness makes people feel small and critter-like, as they wallow in a sea of dark thoughts and dour moods with warm blanket to crawl under and music that matches thier mood.
But this is obviously not a good way to handle a visit from the Boohoo Blues, so those who have learned to live and love the depressed find ways to lighten their mood that don't involve hugging.
Those who want to help the depressed, and anyone looking for a cure to sadness, should check out this comic by YMB/Yasmin F and see how ten easy steps can make even the most gloomy person crack a smile!
The expression “Elvis has left the building” has been used as a comedic and colloquial way to say “the show's over”, “get out while the gettin's good”, “you don't have to go home but you can't stay here”, etc.
Our aunts and uncles say it, our grandparents said it before it was cool, and little kids say it even though they don't have a clue who Elvis Presley is, but where did this fun expression come from?
Simon Whistler of Today I Found Out explores the origin of this saying that's more popular than Presley in this fun factoid video, getting to the bottom of this mystery with a little help from our friend Eddie Deezen.
Superheroes and supervillains fight because that's what they were drawn to do, but when two heroes go at it there's usually some underlying reason involving truth, justice and the goody two-shoes way.
The superhero flick Batman V Superman has brought up the sore subject of superhero-on-superhero violence, which will continue when Cap and Iron Man go head-to-head in Captain America: Civil War.
But believe it or not both Batman and Superman have been involved in far more brutal fights, with Bane and Doomsday respectively, which makes sense since heroes show restraint when fighting their fellow do-gooders.
Bane broke Batman's spine in the Knightfall story arc, which led to a lengthy recovery and Azrael taking over for Bruce as the Batman Family rallied behind their fallen leader.
Superman was "killed" by the mighty alien Doomsday in The Death Of Superman story arc, which kept Supes out of his spandex supersuit for three long years and led to a reboot of the beloved character.
