PRESSING QUESTION: Is This Man Smiling or Frowning?

There are many pressing questions in this world: is Carnival Cruise Lines actually run by carnies? Is Carnie Wilson related to Owen and Luke? And does Owen get jealous that it’s called Luke warm and not Owen warm? I know what you’re saying: “Ben, you are INSIDE MY BRAIN.” Well, you’re welcome. But I’d like […]

VIDEO: Super Mario Beads — Just Watch This And Thank Me Later

Some creative souls in Sweden animated a Super Mario Bros. adventure with beads, and the end result is nothing short of awesome, amazing, genius, and great.

Just when you thought it was safe to prepare for the Rapture, it up and doesn’t happen.

JUST BECAUSE: Me & A Miniature Horse

I went to wine country this past weekend with my parents, and while the boozin’ was fun, I have to admit that it was the miniature horse ranch just outside of Solvang, CA that amused me the most. We all know that I have a heart of stone, but even I couldn’t resist the four-legged […]
