Wait: Let me Toast a Selfie…

And to think you don’t even have to be Jesus to get your own image on your morning toast.


We bring you: the Selfie Toaster.

REAL toast. With your REAL face toasted on it. Customized with your favorite selfie image by the Vermont Novelty Toaster Corporation. No joke. No Photoshop. No shenanigans. 

And for only $75, you can have one of these babies shipped right to you. It comes in blue, red, yellow, green or powder. They also sell a logo toaster, a note toaster, the Virgin Mary toaster, the Poe toaster, the Peace toaster…and of course…the toaster that got it all started…the Jesus toaster.

But, it’s not a perfect science, as their caveat reads:

We are good but remember fine detail is darn near impossible to achieve with heat and toast. If we squint and can’t see your face we will cancel order and refund your purchase.

I’m buying one right now…


Giant Dead Parrot Unveiled in London to Promote Last Monty Python Show

No one expects the Spanish Inquisition, never mind a giant dead blue parrot in London.


Not something you see everyday, but if you were in London recently, you would have seen a 50 foot giant dead parrot being unveiled on London’s South Bank promoting the live broadcast of the final Monty Python Live stage show on July 20th. It’s been revealed that this famous Norwegian Blue dead parrot was created as a homage of sorts because it was the #1 Monty Python sketch voted on by the nation on British Comedy TV Gold channel. It took a team of three sculptors over two months to create the prop.

I personally thought the Spam, Spam, Spam vignette or the Lumberjack Song would be right up there as well, but the dead parrot was classic Python.

If you’ve never seen the sketch, well we just happen to have it here…

Word Nerds: Don’t Commit Word Crimes; Use Good Grammar like Weird Al (Video)

Grammar Gods and Goddesses Behold!

Weird Al Yankovic has created the song and video for you. On his newest album released this week, Mandatory Fun, Weird Al takes to dissing the Robin Thicke Blurred Lines hit to his own “Word Crimes”. Never has grammar been so incredibly delightful and melodious. The best thing since Schoolhouse Rocks’ “Conjunction Junction“, in my humble opinion. (And if you remember that oldie but goodie, then you are as old as dirt like me.)

So for all of you who are using R U in your tweets, dangling those participles, and trying to break the habit of Oxford commas, this is a great lesson from the guy who brought us “Eat It”, “White and Nerdy” and another recent one, “Tacky“, murdering Pharrell’s “Happy” hit. Yes, Weird Al has to remind the Internet how to use good grammar.

Some of our favorite lyrics:

Saw your blog post
It’s really fantastic
That was sarcastic (Oh, psych!)
Cause you write like a spastic

Enjoy, you Word Nerds…

Marching Band Forms T-Rex + Eats Band Member = Awesome

I don’t know about you, but I’d rather watch this sensational marching band then ever see Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction at the football game halftime show ever again. The Ohio University marching band not only forms a massive T-Rex from Jurrasic Park, but check out what they do with Superman. They not only form the “S” but actually form a telephone booth in which superman transforms from Clark Kent into the man of Steel! They also do a pretty awesome job with Harry Potter and Pirates of the Caribbean, with lots of cannon fireworks on the two ships, but my favorite has to be the huge T-Tex that walks and ultimately swallows the drum major. Amazing!
