Behold, the man who crushes his nuts while crossing his legs Behold, the man who crushes his nuts while crossing his legs

Great comedy can rely on extraordinary wit, cutting satire, or elaborately choreographed slapstick. People spend their entire lives devoted to this craft, working tirelessly to perfect the nearly ineffable art of making others laugh.

And now, a Twitter bot that collects phrases you can sing to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme And now, a Twitter bot that collects phrases you can sing to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme

In the mid-‘90s, when consumer internet began spreading to homes across the world—back before corporations figured out how to exert control over every aspect of this technology they could think of—the web was a weird, sometimes wonderful place filled with bizarre jokes and unexpected subcultures. Every now and then,…

Dean Cain, Kristy Swanson reinvigorate American theater with MAGA play about Peter Strzok, Lisa Page Dean Cain, Kristy Swanson reinvigorate American theater with MAGA play about Peter Strzok, Lisa Page

Last year, we learned that FBI agent Peter Strzok was removed from the Mueller investigation (and subsequently fired) for exchanging anti-Trump texts with Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair. For those with brains still safely encased within their skulls, this was a relatively minor footnote in…

Just a strong cat doing some pull-ups, putting the rest of us to shame Just a strong cat doing some pull-ups, putting the rest of us to shame

House cats usually make their owners feel better about themselves. They sleep all day, refuse to do anything more productive than eating and cleaning themselves, and generally just lie around making human accomplishments as limited as washing the dishes or going to work feel like staggering feats in comparison.

Justin Bieber backs down from Tom Cruise fight challenge, depriving us all of prime entertainment Justin Bieber backs down from Tom Cruise fight challenge, depriving us all of prime entertainment

Within the space of a week, we’ve gained and lost the possibility of witnessing the fight of the century. Bieber V. Cruise, which was first suggested by young Justin, was to be a clash between two of the most insufferable celebrities on the planet. Throughout the days that followed Bieber issuing a challenge to an…

Welcome to the wonderful world of bizarre literary Instagram accounts Welcome to the wonderful world of bizarre literary Instagram accounts

Literary Instagram sounds like it should be a fairly relaxed corner of social media. It conjures images of nicely staged photos of books next to cups of coffee, short reviews of favorite reads peppered with hashtags, and a welcome reprieve from the unending absurdity of the rest of the internet. Thanks to Mashable’s…

Jonathan Frakes would like to ask you a few questions Jonathan Frakes would like to ask you a few questions

Jonathan Frakes is best known as Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Commander Riker, but his role as the host of the sadly dormant Beyond Belief: Fact Or Fiction is what we really ought to remember. A wonderful compilation of Frakes telling gullible fools that they were tricked by the outlandish stories featured on …

The Nun is inspiring a whole new generation of goths The Nun is inspiring a whole new generation of goths

It would be easy to dismiss last year’s largely forgettable The Nun as just another of the many rote spin-offs made to capitalize on The Conjuring series’ success. This would be a mistake. The movie, which features a demon nun named Valak who looks like a scrapped Marilyn Manson video concept, has had an impact far…

World's scariest doll discovered by woman who wrongly insists it's not scary World's scariest doll discovered by woman who wrongly insists it's not scary

The “scary doll” subgenre is alive and well. In the coming months, audiences will see the return of Chucky, another installment of Annabelle, and Dee Wallace taking on a whole trunk of the things. While it seems like a great time to be a fan of getting spooked by inanimate objects, scary dolls may be losing their…

Turns out a Reddit filled entirely with bots is just as fired up about cats, films, and food as regular Reddit Turns out a Reddit filled entirely with bots is just as fired up about cats, films, and food as regular Reddit

Most people assume that a world inhabited only by robots would be more orderly and logical than our own. They imagine that machines, their artificial intelligence unaffected by petty grievances and emotional influence, wouldn’t be interested in spending time on message boards arguing with each other.

The world's worst sorority video is back, and more horrifying than ever before The world's worst sorority video is back, and more horrifying than ever before

The popular image of hell is a supernatural nightmare of fire and brimstone, demons and screams of torment, but there is far worse to be found among the more regular aspects of daily life. Take, for instance, sorority recruitment videos, carefully choreographed PR for organizations meant to celebrate the bonds…

Tig Notaro interviews James Van Der Beek despite having no clue who he is Tig Notaro interviews James Van Der Beek despite having no clue who he is

Most talk show interviews come with the unspoken assumption that the host either knows a whole lot of background information about their guest or, failing that, is at least able to recognize who they are. Well, a new series from Funny Or Die featuring comedian Tig Notaro is here to make sure that’s no longer the case.

Death Stranding isn't a stealth game, you fools, it's a "Strand Game," explains Hideo Kojima Death Stranding isn't a stealth game, you fools, it's a "Strand Game," explains Hideo Kojima

Hideo Kojima, the same man who coined the term “Tactical Espionage Action” for a series of games largely defined by hiding in vents and watching half-hour cutscenes, is here to clear up any questions viewers may have had after watching last week’s trailer for his upcoming game, Death Stranding.

So, here's Mike Huckabee playing bass with a member of Korn So, here's Mike Huckabee playing bass with a member of Korn

Mike Huckabee has long considered himself a comedian, much to the dismay of everyone who’s ever heard his jokes. Without a decent grasp on how comedy—or, more distressingly considering he’s a pundit and former governor, the American government—works, Huckabee blunders onward, tweeting out every errant gut-buster that…

W. Earl Brown reviews the Deadwood movie, reveals there's 30 minutes of unused footage W. Earl Brown reviews the Deadwood movie, reveals there's 30 minutes of unused footage

Deadwood’s Dan Dority, the long-haired giant who serves as Al Swearengen’s muscle, is one of the show’s most fascinating characters. Played with a mix of barely contained violence and restrained emotion by W. Earl Brown, Dan stars in some of the most impactful scenes from the original series. Despite his importance to…

Sebastian Gorka, brow furrowed as he monitors world news for any further threats to Western culture on par with two cartoon animal men tying the knot, has identified a worrying blip on the horizon. The former Trump administration member and Fox News contributor—an unfortunate guy who just can’t help himself from…

Enjoy the craziest quotes from Rolling Stone's oral history of Santana and Rob Thomas' "Smooth" Enjoy the craziest quotes from Rolling Stone's oral history of Santana and Rob Thomas' "Smooth"

A little less than 20 years ago today, the music industry was oh-so-gently rocked by the syrupy tones of Matchbox Twenty’s Rob Thomas imploring the world to give him our “heart, make it real or else forget about it” over Carlos Santana wailing on guitar. “Smooth,” the lead single from Santana’s 1999 comeback album, …

Here's a fan-made Deadwood trailer meant to get all you hoopleheads excited for tonight's movie Here's a fan-made Deadwood trailer meant to get all you hoopleheads excited for tonight's movie

Somehow, more than a decade since it was cancelled by HBO, Deadwood is returning tonight with a movie that will finally cap off its prematurely ended story. Before setting out cans of peaches and jars of unauthorized cinnamon to enjoy with the viewing, you may want to remember exactly why the prospect of watching a…

Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Bonnaroo, Pitchfork, and Woodstock 50 can all get bent. The real can’t-miss summer event of 2019 is here, and it’s a live-action role-playing game for goats.
