This handy chart shows you where your favorite professional wrestlers would fit in, if they had to adhere to the alignments set forth by Dungeons & Dragons decades ago. Hulk Hogan is so epic that he can be good and evil simply by changing the color of his attire, and I thinks Vince McMahon has been hitting the muscle juice a little too hard.
Boy, The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man sure is cute when he's not stomping around terrorizing a city with his sugary goodness! For those of you with snow, you're lucky because you can make your own geeky snowman, unlike we Southern Californians whose only knowledge of snow comes from the movies and tv shows. We'll just have to settle for sculpting our mashed potatoes into something cool...
Banksy has literally defaced a statue in his latest work, replacing the face of a replica statue with pixels as a political statement:
Banksy titled the statue “Cardinal Sin”, and designed it as a comment on recent crimes perpetrated by the Catholic church—a response to the child abuse scandal that was covered-up.
In a statement, Banksy said: “I’m never sure who deserves to be put on a pedestal or crushed under one.”
It's a statement, no doubt, but is it worthy of sitting alongside the works of Van Dyck and Rubens?
Remember when we all thought Beanie Babies would be worth a fortune someday, or when Pogs ruled the schoolyard? Then check out this gallery of Christmas list toppers from the 90s, some of which are still around while others have fallen by the wayside, and see if you still have some of these treasures lying around in a box somewhere. Ebay here we come!
These delightfully awful Christmas card photos put the hohoho! back in the holidays. If you don't like the way you look in your photo this year, take a gander at this wacky gallery and feel better about yourself.
The main problem with moving a giant Gundam robot statue across Japan is having to put it back together again, but maybe this life-size behemoth should have been left in pieces, because he looks like he could do some serious damage to the surrounding city. Head to the link to see some time lapse videos of this bad boy being re-built.
Ron Swanson delivers his lines with deadpan, moustachioed machismo, which only adds to the hilarious nature of what he's saying, whether he's discussing food, relationships or politics.
This series of Ron Swanson quotes about food is sure to whet the appetite of every carnivore, and turn most vegans' stomachs. Parks and Recreation fans know Ron Swanson wouldn't have it any other way.
These sculptures are so beautifully crafted, and so finely detailed, that rendering them on aluminum roasting pans and trays is almost a shame, since these flimsy, throwaway objects can so easily be destroyed.
Created by Idan Friedman, these are classical styled portraits with a modern twist, recyclable works of art that hopefully won't end up in a recycling bin.

This animated GIF by Matt Layzell of Treat Studios celebrates the epic awesomeness of the holidays with a bright, splashy display that could only be improved by playing Iron Maiden in the background.
Share this one with someone who doesn't believe in Santa Claus, to warn them against getting their name stuck on the Naughty List.

When graffiti artist Strook decided to create a piece for De Invasie, a series of artworks based around ecology, he grabbed a high pressure hose instead of an aerosol can and removed the moss from the wall, one line at a time, to create this awesome mechanical bird mural.
You can see more photos of this reverse graffiti piece at the link below, including shots of Strook at work on the wall and close-up detail shots so you can more fully appreciate the linework that went in to creating the mural. I wonder if law enforcement agencies will vilify this form of clean graffiti as they have with other forms of street art?

Leave it to Sasha Baron Cohen, the guy behind Borat and Ali G, to make light of an uncomfortable situation with broad humor which will allow those being lampooned to laugh at themselves, although ruthless dictators are some of the toughest nuts to crack. Watch this trailer for The Dictator and bask in the glory of global unrest-themed ridiculousness.
At the height of the TMNT fad (circa 1994), the heroes in a half-shell put out a Christmas special, full of their own unique brand of self promotion. See how the Turtles can turn most any Christmas carol into a song about themselves, or food, and watch as their rubber lips flap to the beat. It's a nostalgic Christmas clip for all the Ninja Turtles fans from way back!
Remember when celebrity portraits weren't photoshopped, and the stars were allowed to relax and be themselves, rather than posing on ridiculously overdone sets in the latest couture ensemble?
This series by Norman Seeff finds celebs relaxing, goofing around, and occasionally just hangin' out in full outfit and makeup (I'm looking at you KISS). Take a stroll through the rest of the images at the link below, and reminisce about a time before John Travolta found Scientology, the Jackson 5 sported afros, and the Rolling Stones still had their edge.

I know some of you are going to say "this video is old", because we all know that interwebs enthusiasts think anything posted a week ago is old, much less something from 2008.
But really guys, does it ever get old watching a penguin start the pet revolution against dogs? The only thing that would make this video better is if a dog were to come in and jealously compete for most newspapers fetched in one day. Let the competition for best pet begin!
Shopping in The Place Mall in Beijing, China is like taking a strange journey through a hallucinatory wonderland, or maybe it's just the giant LED screens that play animated videos all day. They don't look like very much fun for people who suffer from motion sickness, or for those who already think the sky is falling.
Al Jaffee, aka the father of the Mad Magazine fold-in, likes to let you know when you've asked a really dumb question by responding with a series of snappy answers.
Watch the spry 91-year-old get real, on stage in front of an audience in New York City, and add some wicked barbs to your arsenal of sarcastic responses to idiotic queries.
These charming paintings by Christopher Stott are full of nostalgia and the love of vintage design.
With muted hues and a soft light, they're easily mistaken for photographs at a glance, and Christopher shows remarkable skill for imitating real-world reflections, from chrome to painted metal to the edge of a plastic book sleeve.
You can admire the rest of these masterfully crafted paintings at the link below.

It looks like Bill wasn't lucky enough to survive a recent encounter with the undead in this Left 4 Dead fan film trailer from Airsoft GI and Northern Five Entertainment, based on the popular zombie apocalypse themed video game.
This trailer would make a great cut scene for Left 4 Dead gameplay after a member of the group dies. Man, i'd be bummed too if one of the four survivors in my group is now a buffet for the infected, and it's probably my fault. The full length fan film is going to be released soon, and so far it looks like gloomy goodness.
Fiona (2010) by Jessica Harrison
These classically-styled statues of classy ladies with a grisly twist are the products of Jessica Harrison's twisted imagination. She performs minor surgery on ceramic statues, removing an arm or skullcap or sometimes the entire head, then she modifies the statues to tell a dark, murderous tale.
If Hummel ever started making statues like these, I'm sure a Brony-esque trend would follow.

Watch as Pac-Man lets down Ms. Pac-Man, and his little Pac children, by succumbing to Skyrim addiction. This NSFW pixel animation is very relatable these days, as Skyrim has created an epidemic of video game addiction virtually unmatched since the world was introduced to Warcraft.
C'mon Pac-Man, you know if you don't bring home those power pellets the Ms. is going to let herself get caught by a ghost!
There are thousands of tiny soldiers locked in eternal combat in Valencia, Spain, housed in the Museo de los Soldaditos de Plomo (museum of the little lead soldiers).
What started as a small collection belonging to Museum Director Alejandro Noguera's father has become a collection of over one million, with 85,000 on display in diorama scenes straight out of history. You can see more of Derek Workman's beautiful photos of the historical tableaus at the link below.

As the young'ns become slightly older'ns, and a new decade fad replaces the old, our popular interest sights are set upon the 1990s, a time of Bush/Clinton, Nicktoons and Cross Colours (which some kids felt the need to wear backwards, thanks to flash-in-the-pan kid rap act Kris Kross).
This massive desk doodle seems to sum it all up, in terms of animation anyways, with all the greats present and accounted for- Rugrats, Johnny Bravo, the Simpsons, Animaniacs, Sonic and Gumby? What's he doing in there?
This collection of rock star appearances in animation is fun to watch, and may turn you on to some sweet cartoons you've never heard of, like this clip from Rock & Rule featuring Lou Reed performing "My Name Is Mok".
Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry, Tom Petty, Marilyn Manson and Donnie Osmond all make guest appearances in this collection, and I know that Donnie Osmond isn't who most people think of when the term "rock star" is used, but he'll be the first to let you know that he's a "little bit rock n roll", so I guess that's good enough for me.
That's because she used spices and other ingredients for cooking to recreate the scenes, and the textures feel much more like the original paintings than most recreations i've seen. And when she's done snapping pics of the scenes she's created, she can cook up a tasty meal!
