Adorably Horrifying: Kittens and Sloths Make Slittens

Slittens

Got a case of the Monday blues? Then head on over to Slittens and turn that frown upside down. No, that’s not a link to a gallery of adorable kittens or baby animals (although checking those out isn’t a bad idea either.) Rather, you’ll find yourself starting at photo after photo of a new breed of animals called slittens. Okay, so they might look freaky at first glance, but they’ll eventually grow on you.

What are slittens?, you might ask. I’ve never heard of them before. Well, they’re basically what you get when kittens and sloths come together–not naturally, of course, but by the wonders of PhotoShop.

Riffy GIF Keyboard Lets You Say It With a GIF

Riffy Keyboard App

They make you laugh. They help you get a point across. They sum whatever it is you’re feeling in a few frames. That’s what GIFs does for you, in a nutshell. And unless you’re always on the prowl for the latest GIFs on Reddit or elsewhere, it sometimes takes you a few minutes of searching before finding the one that you want you use to do any (or all) of the above.

But that’s where the Giffsy keyboard comes in. It’s an app for iOS 8 that lets users insert GIFs that they deem appropriate into the conversation. The app comes with a built-in library of GIFs to choose from while allowing users to save new ones they come across using Safari.

HyperLip Plastic Lips Forces Any Face Into a Grimace

HyperLip

 

Put on the HyperLip the next time you take a selfie and watch the likes pile up…not. It’s an unusual mouthpiece that forces the face of its wearer into a grimace. If you think only one kind of grimace exists, then think again, because these photos will prove you wrong. Who knew there could be so many ways to grimace–from smug and different to manic and just plain scary?

The HyperLip was created by French designer Sascha Nordmeyer back in 2009 as an art project. Now they’re back and are being used at the Olympus Photography Playground traveling exhibition, with the next event taking place in Cologne, Germany on September 11th to October 5th, 2014.

Five O’Clock Wall Clock: Because It’s the Best Time of the Day

5 Oclock Wall Clock

 

Five o’clock. It’s the time of day that you look forward to the most, each and every single weekday. And on weekends if you’ve got work on those days, too. It’s ironic how time seems to crawl by so slowly when you’re at work or doing some mundane chore or errand that you couldn’t get out of.

If you feel like that most of the time, then you might want to get one of these Five O’clock wall clocks. As you can see, it only has the number five printed on its face. All you have to do is glance over quickly to check how far or how close the hour hand is to five with no other numbers to distract you.

You can get the clock for $100.

Not Quite So Super: Superhero Poop

Spiderman Poop

Art is subjective. One man’s trash is another one’s treasure. Both statements apply in the case of this collection of Superhero Poop by Antonis Art Asylum. There’s nothing super or heroic about the polymer clay poop, other than the fact that they look like the costumes that the pooper (in this case, the superheroes) wear when they’re in action.

Each piece of poop is handmade and, as its maker proudly claims, no two are alike, “just like real poop.”

If You Can’t Afford a Rocking Horse: Knee Horsey

Knee Horsey

 

For most people, the first thing they ever took a ride on was a rocking horse. They aren’t quite as popular as they used to be, with the advent of newer and more high tech toys, but they still hold a special place in the hearts of those who remembered the fun they had just rocking in place on the wooden horse.

They’re also not very practical anymore, considering the tight spaces most people live in now. The fun, not to mention cheaper, alternative? The Knee Horsey, which is basically a plush horse head with buckles on the side that are meant to go around a fun-loving parent’s leg. It can even make horsey and galloping sounds, which can be activated by pressing its left ear. Once it’s in place, just call your tiny tot to come for a ride.

Here’s to making memories! The Knee Horsey is available online for $49.99.

Damnit, Expelliarmus: ‘Harry Potter’ Dementor Prank

Remember those soul-sucking creatures from Harry Potter that can seal your fate with a single, fatal kiss? If you’re a fan of the franchise, then you probably do. Two dudes decided to have a little fun with the character by bringing it to life. Save for a hooded black robe and a dude who does a good impression of being possessed, the duo don’t have any props but their little prank was still a roaring success. I almost feel bad for all the people they scared…well, almost.

Half of them probably didn’t get the Harry Potter reference but seeing such strangeness right before your very eyes might be enough to freak an average person out. I know I probably would’ve been, too. Check it out!

TMNT Trailer Gives Rise to the Michaelangelo Meme

TMNT Meme

Michael Bay is at the helm of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie reboot and he’s caused a lot of buzz with the direction that he’s chosen to go with the franchise. Some die-hard fans were ticked off at Bay’s need to tweak the turtles’ origins, but they didn’t have difficulty finding humor in their appearance. Specifically, that of Michaelangelo.

The first trailer for TNMT was released recently and what stood out the most to some was Michaelangelo’s odd appearance. Mainly, the fact that he looks like a cross between Shrek and Lizard from the Amazing Spider-Man. This gave rise to a new meme that has since taken off: the Michaelangelo. Hit the break to check out more!

Lather Up in Imaginary Riches With BitCoin-Inspired BitSoaps

Bitsoaps

 

You can’t hold Bitcoins in your hands but you can lather up a storm with BitSoaps. The two are in no way affiliated with each other; one is an a cryptocurrency you can actually spend, while the other one is a giant coin-shaped soap that comes in three variants.

BitSoaps are made by an enterprising young couple who were “fascinated by [the] concept and versatile utility” of the Bitcoin currency. So they decided to jump on its popularity and come up with soaps inspired by it. On their website, they explain: “Our love for nature and passion for exciting endeavors has drawn us to creating this project. A project that merged environmental mindfulness and digital currency. Marrying these polarized ideas has, therefore, given birth to BitSoaps.”

There are three kinds of BitSoaps to choose from: Bitcoin Hemp Oil Soap Bar, Bitcoin Valentines Lavender Hemp/Castile Soap Bar, and Litecoin Castile Soap Bar. Each coin–er, bar–is priced at $4.42.
