Toddler Gives Bull Terrier a Medical Checkup

YouTube Link

A little girl named Noa gives a thorough veterinary checkup to Neckar, likely the most chill and patient bull terrier ever. Every bull terrier I've encountered is so excited about life and gregarious that they are practically bouncing off walls. It makes me wonder if the "doctor" didn't administer a sedative to her patient prior to the checkup. Whatever the case, it's adorable. Via Tastefully Offensive


Romance Novel Covers Remade with Real People

The passion . . . the lust . . . the cellulite. These romance novel covers are a bit more realistic. Charles Manning, Lauren Ahn, and Kathleen Kamphausen recreated for Cosmpolitan the cover images for 10 bodice-rippers using ordinary people. The couples look very much in love, but we might not want to witness the continuation of their intimate congress.

Content warning: implied nudity that you probably don't want to think about.

The 18 Best Fantasy Movies of the 1980s

(Image: Columbia Pictures)

The 1980s was a glorious time for cinema. Audiences could swoon over soaring science fiction epics like Dune and Return of the Jedi. It was also a high time for fantasy film making. Leah Schnelbach of Tor has ranked 18 of them. They include some of my favorites of the genre, including Krull, Conan the Barbarian, and The Beastmaster.

Krull is a sadly neglected work that has not received the attention that it deserves. It is not a truly great movie, but it is consistently entertaining. I became enamored of it in my youth. By the time I was 16, I had watched it so many times that I could recite the dialogue from memory.

What movies on the list do you like? Are there any films you would add to it?


Adorable Superman and Wonder Woman Wedding

'Baby, you're my Wonder Woman.'

'Honey, you're a Superman to me.'

Reinesha and Devan must feel this way about each other because they had a superhero-themed wedding with Reinesha as the Princess of Themyscira and Devan as the Man of Steel. The entire wedding party was dressed appropriately for the event, including Wonder Woman eye makeup, Superman socks, and wedding rings for both of those characters. Reinesha and Devan are clearly DC superfans and deeply in love.

You can see more photos of their wedding here. I suggest that you do because the level of detail that they went to is really impressive.

They don't show the departure from the wedding, but we can safely assume that it was in an invisible jet heading for the Fortress of Solitude.


Old Man Shocks Everyone at Wedding with His Dancing Skills


(Video Link)

He may need canes to walk, but not to dance! Watch this old man put the younger folks to shame with his mastery of the dance floor. You can join him, but I doubt you can keep up with his moves and speed.

Post-Game Hug

(YouTube link)

The proper etiquette after a tennis match is for the two players to greet each other, shake hands, or hug. During the Claro Open Colombia tennis tournament in Bogotá, Colombia, Croatian player Ivo Karlovic, who is 6’ 11”, defeated Israeli Dudi Sela, who is 5’ 9”. Sela found the perfect workaround for this situation. The fact that they are dressed just alike was a coincidence.  -via Tastefully Offensive


Black-Footed Cat Kittens Play with Crickets

(YouTube link)

Zoos find themselves in the strange position of buying animals for other animals. In this case, the Philadelphia Zoo got a shipment of live crickets for the Black-footed Cat kittens to play with. You remember when they were little. They’ve grown a lot, and now are almost as big as their mother! Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal are three months old now.

It seems weird to call them Black-foot Cat kittens, instead of just Black-footed kittens. But “Black-footed Cat” is the species. It’s like saying “Sand Cat cubs” instead of just Sand cubs. But wait- at what point do you classifying wild cats as cubs instead of kittens? Black-footed cats are smaller than domestic cats, but they are still wildcats! -via Uproxx


Disney Princess War

(YouTube link)

You have to admit that some Disney Princesses are more badass than others. Which ones are well illustrated in this sequence from Robot Chicken (sure, you could easily guess which princesses would hold a gun backward). Honestly, who in their right mind would think you could possibly put this many young ladies of royalty in one room and not expect it to get extremely catty in no time? It’s a good thing this was written before Frozen, because a war like this would be over in a second if one of the participants actually had superpowers! -via Geeks Are Sexy


Enjoy Four Seasonings With These Fun Four Seasoning Shakers

Salt and pepper is great and all, but why settle for two flavors -especially when doubling your spices also means getting to spruce up your table with these delightful Four Seasons Seasoning Shakers. 

Each plastic dome holds a plastic tree (or succulent) that represents a different season and you can even choose spices that accentuate the theme -by using salt in the winter dome, for example. 

You can buy the set at Fancy and read more about them at Homes and Hues: Use the Four Seasons to Season Your Food


Harry Potter Juggalo Tattoo

Magic wands--how do they work?

Harry's a juggalo, not a muggalo, despite what this fantastic tattoo by daveycxc suggests. Even Insane Clown Posse endorses the makeup.

P.S. Did you hear that J.K. Rowling just published a new Harry Potter short story? You can read it here.


Mother and Son Wedding Dance

(YouTube link)

We’ve seen plenty of choreographed wedding dances, and after a while, they all start to look the same. This one, featuring the groom and his mother, is less of a showing-off dance than most and more of a humorous “evolution of dance” type demonstration that had the crowd pleased and didn’t go on too long. It was a complete surprise to the bride! -via Viral Viral Videos


Slow Jam Version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


(Video Link)

Scott Bradlee and his band Postmodern Jukebox reproduce popular songs in radically different musical styles, such as a Dixieland jazz version of "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns 'n' Roses. Lately, they've been offering slow jam versions of cartoon themes, such as Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers and Pokémon.

This Saturday, they remixed the theme song of our favorite chelonian martial artists, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The original is embedded below.

World’s Toughest Job

(YouTube link)

A company interviews people via computer for a fake job. This is a tough job, the kind where you’re always on call, carrying a lot of responsibility, no breaks, no vacations, no holidays, and no pay. Would you sign up for a job like that? Of course not! Or maybe you would… because you can probably see the end of this one coming. It’s an ad, too, but don’t let that spoil your enjoyment of this prank. -via Viral Viral Videos


How It Should Have Ended: Frozen


(Video Link)

The comedy writers at HISHE have produced their best parody video yet.

Obviously Frozen could have had few complications if only Anna and Elsa's parents had demonstrated basic parenting sense. But HISHE goes even further, suggesting a crossover movie that we all want to see.

I won't say any more, lest I spoil it for you.

Gender Swapped Disney Characters


Male Ariel (The Little Mermaid)

Why should Disney princesses have all the fun? Artist Sakimi Chan decided to gender swap her favorite Disney princesses/villains into dudes (and vice versa) - and the results are quite stunning! The details and colors of Chan's artwork are amazing in and of themselves, then the unexpected twist of gender bending the characters really propel them into a whole 'nother level.

Take a look at Sakimi Chan's wonderful gender swapped Disney characters below and at her deviantArt page:


Male Cruella de Vil (101 Dalmatians)


Male Elsa (Frozen)
