A Collection of Delightful Cat Halloween Costumes

There's something special about a cat in costume. Maybe it's just because we are so used to seeing dog costumes or maybe it's just that cats are so darn stubborn it's fun to see them submit to our absolutely pointless Halloween costumes.

Whatever the reason, it's hard not to love seeing cats in costumes and thanks to the Huffington Post, you can now enjoy 25 cats in costume, including the witch and alien costumes seen above. There's a lot of great variety in the list, ranging from unicorns to candy corn and Princess Leia to spooky bats, so if you like seeing embarassed kitties in absurd outfits, you're sure to see something you like.

You can check out the full list here.

UPS Drivers Have a Facebook Group Dedicated to the Dogs on Their Routes

There are all kinds of stereotypes about dogs and delivery people, but as it turns out, there are plenty of UPS people who adore dogs -and they have plenty of dog friends as well. In fact, there's actually a Facebook group of UPS drivers sharing photos of the pooches they run into on their routes. 

Unsurprisingly, the photos and the stories are adorable and it's great for the group to break stereotypes. I actually used to have a mail woman that would bring biscuits to all the pups on her route and they would look forward to her arrival every day, so I can attest to the fact that postal workers and dogs can absolutely be good friends.

Fascinating Things You Might Not Know About Elvira

Halloween is the right time to rewatch all your favorite Elvira movies -and if you happen to be near Anaheim, you could even see her perform in person at Knott's Berry Farm. If you can't get enough of the Mistress of the Dark though, you may as well learn a little bit more about her -or rather the actress that plays her, Cassandra Peterson. For example, did you know she started her career as a showgirl in Las Vegas and even dated Elvis and Tom Jones?

Have A Bunch of Fall Leaves? They Could Earn You Cash

(Fall In Love by Chay Hawes)

The changing colors of fall leaves can be either inspirational or frustrating depending on whether you're looking at them or trying to rake them up off your lawn. But if you happen to live in New England and have some maple trees in your yard, they could help you rake in the cash this year. That's because an abnormally warm fall and a number of droughts has left crafting company Ship Foliage short on leaves. The site is actually buying leaves in quantities of 100 for $1 each, but your leaves have to be only red, yellow, orange or a combination of the three and have no visual imperfections, bugs, mold, tears, decay, etc.

You can find out more about selling your leaves here.

Photoshoppers Are Loving This Super Sexy Gecko

Not all geckos are created equal -and this one might just be the sexiest gecko alive. Fortunatley for the world at large, his owner was kind enough to upload this image of him to the internet so we can all bask in his glory.

Unsurprisingly, people had a blast with photoshopping him in all types of hilariously over-the-top positions. 

And not all of them are particularly sexy either -like this epic cliffhanger picture.

One thing they all have in ommon though is just how cool this fabulous gecko is. Here's hoping we see lots more of him in the future. In the meanwhile, you can enjoy an epic collection of ridiculous Photoshops over on Bored Panda.

The Best Vampire and Zombie Movies of All Time

For most horror movie fans, one of two movie monsters will always reign supreme -vampires and zombies. Fortunately for those who just can't get enough of these two terrible creatures, Collider has taken the time to rank the best films that feature each of the creatures. The vampire list includes the classic Dracula (of course) as well as more modern classics like Fright Night and Blade -but sorry Twilight fans, you'll have to look elsewhere for your validation. 

The zombie list has all the George Romero films you'd expect as well as some more clever takes on the genre -like Sean of the Dead and Paranorman (though I felt Fido deserved a place on the list as well).

So visit Collider to see their ranking of the best vampire movies and the best zombie movies and then come back here to debate their choices.

People Heaven is the Worst

You'd better hope that heaven doesn't make mistakes because if it does, this is the kind of thing that would ruin your eternity for, well, eternity. After all, being reconnected with your loved ones is great and all, but being connected with your deceased pets and getting to cuddle with puppies forever -now that sounds like actual heaven.

Maybe an Anne Frank Halloween Costume Isn't the Best Idea

Every year Halloween stores release a shockingly tasteless costume to the public that ends up getting pulled before the big day even arrives. This year that costume is an Anne Frank costume that was sold on HalloweenCostumes.com before they pulled it after wave after wave of customer outrage. While it would be one thing for a young girl to take inspiration from Anne Frank's story, it's entirely different for a company to try to capitalize on a Holocaust victim for cash -especially when they seem to think the appropriate pose for the costume model is a sassy little troublemaker. 

Of course, the costume wasn't just limited to HalloweenCostumes.com -it was also for sale on other Halloween websites as well (though it does get pulled pretty quickly from most sites as soon as angry Twitter users have found it). Most of the other sites are labeling the costume as "World War II Evacuee Girl" instead of saying outright that it is Anne Frank. Either way, the result is a pretty tasteless way to cash in on a tragic historical figure.

Sometimes Accidental Google Searches Bring the Best Results

Usually when you mistype something on Google, you either get results that have nothing to do with what you're looking for or Google will auto-correct your search. But sometimes a mistaken search can give you results better than what you were hoping to find -for example, when you look for Baroque Obama.

Or a corgo ship. Over on Bored Panda, you can see some truly wonderful accidental Google searches that will make you smile and laugh. 

So don't miss the whole list here.

This Guy Cosplayed as the Convention Center Building

There are so many cosplays out there that it can be hard to think of something no one else has done. At the New York Comic Con a few weeks ago, someone came up with a completely new an original cosplay costume -the convention center itself. It was spotted by DC comics writer Scott Snyder, who posted it on his Twitter and it quickly became viral.

The reactions from fans on Twitter are pretty brilliant -you can read many of them over on Guacamoley.

Hilarious Instances of Petty Revenge

Sometimes you just can't help but want to punish someone even if their "crime" against you is relatively minor. Fortunately, you don't actually have to take your own petty revenge if you just read about someone else getting theirs. 

Over on Runt of the Web, you can read 40 examples of hilarious acts of petty revenge ranging from messing with a co-worker's mouse to putting a pile of poop on a neighbor's porch after he refused to clean up after his dog.

So check out the whole list here.

Start Off Your Day With A Hot Cup of Buffalo Wing Coffee

You know the old expression, "The best part of waking up is Buffalo hot wings in your cup?" No, you don't, oh, I guess that's because it's not something anyone has ever said. Ever. But that didn't stop Tim Hortons from releasing Buffalo wing coffee made of esspresso, mocha and Buffalo sauce flavor topped with steamed milk sprinkled with “zesty Buffalo seasoning.” The nauseating flavor is only available in two locations in Buffalo, NY.

Personally, I think this is a terrible idea -if only because they didn't include a celery stir stick or any blue cheese flavor. You can read more about the novelty beverage over at Eater.

It's worth noting that this isn't the first time the company has experimented with Buffalo flavored treats -they previously released a Buffalo donut in 2014.

Magical Fantasy Potion Necklaces

When you play fantasy RPGs either in a video game or in a tabletop setting, you know just how critical it is to have the right potion on you when you need it. Just because they may not exist in real life though doesn't mean there's no benefit to wearing it around your neck. 

If you want to enjoy a little more magic in your life, then you should check out the Aether Brewery jewelry collection on Etsy. They have healing, mana and renewal potions in both earring and necklace varieties, so no matter what kind of potion you need, they have you covered.

Crazy Things Celebrities Did in the Name of Scientology

Scientology is known for its many celebrity followers, and it's also known for making those followers do some strange things. For example, Nancy Cartwright created a robo-call recording in the voice of Bart Simpson to solicit donations for the church -prompting Fox to issue a public statement stating they do not support any any "religion, philosophy or system of beliefs."
