Yo Mama Toilet Roll: Because Nobody Should Be Sad While They’re Doing Their Number Two’s

Yo Mama Toilet Roll

Normally I find ‘Yo Mama’ jokes a bit too crude for my taste, but I know a lot of people who love them and find them hilarious. People are finding more and more absurd things to print on toilet paper (like, I don’t know, origami directions and measuring tape). The latest one, however, is the Yo Mama Toilet Roll.

It’s offensive, it’s crude, but it’s also strangely appropriate for the bathroom. How many times have you gone there to bawl your eyes out over some guy (or girl) who dumped you? How many times have you taken a dump while you were sad or depressed about something? (Because, you know, sometimes you get some time to reflect on stuff while you’re on the loo.) Now picture yourself grabbing for some tissue to wipe your tears (or your dirty behind) and reading one of the Yo Mama jokes printed on them instead.

Ka-boom. Instant smile, instant chuckle. Temporary relief but a pretty effective one at that. This is probably toilet humor at its very best. Each roll of the Yo Mama tissues costs $4.91.

Button 2.0: Genius Or Stupid?

Why re-invent the wheel, right? Well, we’re not sure, but we sort of want to like the above Button 2.0. It’s a lowly button, unchanged in millennia, only this time it’s been “re-engineered” for the 21st century: it now sports a groove on its side that allows it to fasten an earbud cable, preventing it from swinging around.

At the same time, we’re thinking that it seems to be trying too hard. Is it really solving any kind of problem? By adding $3 to any garment, is it worth it?

We… just don’t know how to feel about it. Maybe you guys can opine? In any case, Button 2.0 seems to be the latest example of a thriving 3D printing market, where objects are now available for purchase at the whim of anyone with an idea and some time to develop a simple 3D model. Whether this is good or not remains to be seen, though we suspect that consumer interest will eventually settle the marketplace and weed out the losers from the winners.

The Fibonacci Cabinet Tickles Our Math Bone

The Fibonacci Sequence or the Fibonacci Numbers are arguably one of the most significant series not just in mathematics, but also in the natural world. If you’re uninitiated, the series goes 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13… Each successive number is arrived by adding the two preceding it. And it’s important because it surfaces time and time again in nature, such as in the “branching of trees, the arrangement of leaves on a stem, the fruitlets of a pineapple, the flowering of artichoke or an uncurling fern, and the arrangement of a pine cone.” The cabinet you see above is inspired by the Chinese medicine cabinet, only instead of having drawers all the same size, each of the seven drawers here is sized after a number in the sequence. Made of bamboo, each drawer is independent and the entire cabinet can be rearranged at will.

We love it.

We don’t know how much it is, but it apparently can be bought and is made to order. Hit the jump for a bunch more pictures and links.

ResQMe Keychain Could Save Your Life In Case Of Accident

This product’s been around for a few years, but we’re sure some of you would still love to know it exists. It’s a very special keychain that serves two purposes: to cut your seatbelt and punch out a window in case of a car accident. It’s a horrible thing to think about but it’s entirely possible that after a wreck your seatbelt refuses to detach. Or your door to open. If you have to get out of there fast (sinking into a river, for example), the ResQMe could save your life. The window punch is activated simply by pressing the device against the window: a spring loaded mechanism triggers and launches a carbide tip into the glass, shattering it. Cutting the seatbelt involves inserting it into the slot and pulling across your chest. Easy.

It’s $11 and tiny enough that unless you’re really in love with your current keychain, there’s no reason not to get it. Just in case.

You Snooze, You Lose–Your Head, That Is! (Don’t Worry, It’s Just a Prank)

Head Fall Off

Have you ever sneezed so hard that your head fell off? No? Well, here, let me show you.

Looks horrifying, doesn’t it? But don’t worry. As we’ve said earlier, it’s just a prank, and a pretty well-executed one at that. The guy you see who loses his head literally is a magician named Rich Ferguson, who was entertaining scaring the crap out of the passersby at Bubblegum Alley in San Luis Obispo, California. As expected, some people freaked out, others screamed, and a couple of them actually ran for dear life.

It’s pretty hilarious and it’s a fun way to cap off the week–especially if you had a stressful one. Hit the break to check the video out!

World’s Awesomest Mom Mods Her Kid’s Push Car into a Time-Traveling DeLorean

Kid DeLorean

When I was a kid, I wished everyday that I’d get a DeLorean for my birthday. Instead, I got a Barbie doll, but I was still happy anyway. Regardless, I’m still bowling over with envy at little Cooper because he’s going to be riding around in a smashing DeLorean this Halloween, all thanks to his awesome dad mom* named Cory.

Cory probably wanted to make her little boy something extra this Halloween, so why not a DeLorean sort-of replica from Back to the Future? It might not be able to travel back through time, but it has the power to make everyone who sees it (aka. you and me) to go back in time and remember the good old days. And what good old days they were.

Hit the break to check out more awesome pics of Cooper’s modded push car!

World’s Biggest Bra is Up for Auction on eBay for a Good Cause

World's Biggest Bra

Ladies and gents, feast your eyes on the World’s Largest Bra, which is a mega-sized 1222B! But before we talk about this ginormous piece of lingerie, let’s talk about the events that made it happen.

Bigger isn’t always better except when it has something to do with a certain part of your body–and by that, I mean your heart. (Just in case you were thinking of something else, which I totally had no intention of making you do. Snicker.)

In all seriousness, having a figuratively bigger heart opens your eyes to the plights of others and the realities of the world. Cancer takes away so many precious lives every year, especially breast cancer, and the sad thing is that some of these lives could have been saved by treatment, had they made the discovery sooner. One way to do that is by getting regular check-ups. And one way to remind men and women to do that is through an awareness campaign, like the ones that the Breast Cancer Campaign is doing.

Some people decided to help out the BCA this year and they did so with extremely huge efforts: by making the 97-foot long brassiere you see above (and after the jump!)

Portal Undies and Knee-High Socks Physically Get You in the Game

Portal Socks

What better way to play Portal than to deck yourself out in themed garb? Obviously, you don’t need to, but I think it’s a little funner that way. The love that some people have for their favorite games inspires them to come up with designs revolving around the themes of the game, like these knee-high Portal 2 socks and undies.

You won’t survive any long falls even if you’ve got these socks on, but at least you’ll good in the process.
