A Monkey on a Pig.

A Monkey on a Pig.
A friend of mine shared this little piece of awesome sauce with me last night. And it was simply too good not to share. I’m not sure which is better…the visuals or the song. Enjoy this little funny for your Friday, if for no other reason than you needing a little more absurdity in your... Read more »

Happy Global Planking Day

In case you didn’t get the memo…people are weird. And apparently there is a new trend–Planking–gaining momentum and today just so happens to be Global Planking Day. Planking is exactly as how it sounds. You replicate a plank. Lie down, stiff as a board, with your toes pointed and arms straight at your sides. The... Read more »

Grammy Nominations that Could Double as Porn Titles

Really? No comment required.
Don’t you just love awards season?! Yah. Neither do I, really. All that fake happiness when someone else wins and long redundant speeches that get interrupted by music and the tragically awesome red carpet wear. Okay. Maybe the last part is pretty cool. I mean, we all know folks are anxiously waiting to see what... Read more »

Super Bowl Super Crimes

In 2008 the man behind the mascot, Kenneth Hahey, 24, was charged with a DUI after a routine stop. His blood alcohol level was well over the legal limit at .166. Clearly, Hahey was out of a job, but the Steely McBeam legend lives on.
Yesterday I read a rather alarming stat…since entering the NFL, nearly 35% of all players in the league have been arrested, as noted in the book Boys Gone Wild, by Professor of Sociology Eric Carter. But don’t go looking at it thinking you’re going to find a gaggle of half-naked hot co-ed men on spring... Read more »

Come Celebrate a Very Important Birthday

It’s February 6th. The birthday of one of the most iconic artists of our time. Rather than tell you all about his awesomeness, I think you should just join in on the celebration. Click here to indulge in his birthday song, which I believe is worthy of a Super Bowl halftime performance. Just sayin’.   Happy... Read more »

Awesome NFC Championship Reaction

Even as a Bears fan, it’s hard not to laugh when the dad says “The Bears can maybe win next year” and the daughter lets out a wailing “No!”  I feel your pain, girl. I feel your pain.

Awesome Anti-Packer Photochops

Some posts don’t need an introduction and are best left to the images to tell the story. This is one of those posts. GO BEARS!! Note: Some are real photos. Some are photochops. Some are cartoons created by very talented individuals. Some are shitty lil’ creations in paint. And others are Photoshop works of art.... Read more »

Vajazzling, Bedazzling, Vattooing, Vavavooming Vajayjays. [NSFW.]

Welcome to my first-ever [and quite possibly only] edition of NOT SUITABLE FOR WORK WEDNESDAY. If you’re at work right now reading this, hop off and log back on when you’re at home. And you may want to give your IT department a heads up that you accidentally clicked a link that may be grounds... Read more »

Happy New Year - It's the Year of the Rabbit!

This is actually a contribution from my husband...but I won't necessarily disagree with it.
Happy New Year’s everyone! No, I’m not more than a month late. After all, today is the start of the Chinese New Year, supposedly marking the end of winter and start of spring–we can wish, right? And 2011 just so happens to be the year of the Rabbit. The Metal Rabbit, in fact. [Yeah…I’m scratching... Read more »

Awesome on Ice

WIth all the snow and ice that has fallen upon Chicago over the past week [with more in the forecast this weekend…brace yourselves!], it is clear that winter is upon us. So to celebrate winter’s arrival, I thought it’d be fun to take a look at some amazingly cool, nerdy, and even somewhat inappropriate ice... Read more »
