Grumpy Cat Snow Globe: Tardar Sauce is Not Impressed

Grumpy Cat Snowglobe

You’ve seen her pictures. You’ve laughed at her memes. Now own something inspired by none other than Tardar Sauce herself. She has achieved global fame on the Internet, where she’s known as Grumpy Cat. You know how some people’s resting faces look like they’ve swallowed something bitter? Well, that’s kind of what Tardar Sauce looks like at any given time, only the expression she sports is of the grumpy, unimpressed kind.

Even though the season of Christmas still won’t bring a smile to that face, something inspired by it will bring joy and a few laughs to most people who encounter it: the Grumpy Cat snowglobe. Shake it, flip it over, tilt it to one side, and you’ll be treated to a rain of glitter and confetti swirling about a bored-looking bust of Grumpy Cat.

Christmas doesn’t get any better than this, even though the snowglobe says otherwise. The Grumpy Cat snowglobe is available online for $16.

Check Out the Happiest Costume on Earth!

Happiest Costume Ever

Disneyland might be the happiest place on earth, but this here is the happiest costume in the world. As you might’ve probably already guessed by now, the costume draws inspiration from the theme park itself. The costume is a handful but it was a challenge that Rob Cockerham of Cockeyed gleefully took on.

The costume is essentially a wearable miniature replica of the world-famous theme park. Spot Space Mountain, the Jungle Cruise, Fantasyland theater, Autopia, the Astro Orbiter, and the Innoventions building on the massive costume, among a host of other attractions. While Rob can definitely walk around while wearing it, I doubt he’ll be able to take a drink from the water fountain or fit through most doorways.

Tricks Done Right: Flying R/C Quadcopter Ghost with Glowing Eyes

October is the month when pranksters let loose, where almost everyone becomes a victim of their sometimes funny and often scary pranks and practical jokes. Taking things one step further is Alton Porter. He built a flying remote-controlled ghost that has glowing eyes that definitely adds to the scare factor.

Alton’s probably having a few laughs right now as he flies his R/C ghost around for a test run before unleashing it onto unsuspecting trick-or-treaters come October 31st. If you know him personally or live in the same neighborhood, you might want to avoid his house if you don’t want the living daylights scared out of you or your kid…or not, because in hindsight, that’s what makes Halloween fun in the first place.

Hilarious: Improv Everywhere Recreates ‘You Shall Not Pass!’ Scene from LOTR

Remember that epic moment from the Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring movie where Gandalf stands in front of the Balrog and delivers the forceful line that was eventually turned into a meme: “You shall not pass!” It was powerful moment and it changed the course of the events to come.

This being one of the most easily recognizable scenes from the series, Improv Everywhere set out to make people experience it in real life by recreating it in one episdode of their “Movies in Real Life” series. The result is pretty hilarious.

Rickroll’d in Klingon: Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ in Klingon

You’ll never forget the first time you were Rickroll’d. I certainly didn’t. What happened was: a friend called me one day and asked if I had heard about the iPhone 4S. I said no, and he told me to check out his Facebook profile because he had linked to an article about it. So I stupidly clicked on the shortened URL and was treated to Rick Astley in all his retro Never Gonna Give You Up goodness.

Rickrolling is still very much alive and kicking, and now an alternate Klingon version of his hit song has hit the web. It’s a Star Trek-inspired parody directed by Christopher Kidder-Mostrom, who also happens to provide the vocals for the video. Now it won’t win any music awards, but it’s a pretty decent–not to mention hilarious–effort.

So what are you waiting for? Get Rickrolling now, Klingon-style.

Go On, Be Annoying: Infinite Text-in-Progress Prank for iOS 7

Text in Progress Icon Prank

You know how you’re texting with someone, and it’s just taking forever for them to respond? It especially sucks when you’ve just asked a question you’re dying to know the answer to. It almost seems like those little dots on the text-in-progress icon are mocking you… Well, I hate to break it to you, but if you’ve been staring at that message thread for an hour and the icon indicated that the person on the other end is still typing, then I think you’ve just been pranked.

How? With this clever animated GIF that pranksters Miscellaneous Mischief have made available here: Infinite Text-In-Progress. The site hosts the GIF that looks like the legit one for the iPhone, and all people have to do is download that and send it to their victim of choice.

Now that you know, the only thing left to do is return the favor (but those people will probably catch on pretty fast, since they already know about it) and pass it on (but have some pity and compassion, and don’t do it to the elderly.)

Squirrels are Superheroes

Squirrel Hero

Squirrels are superheroes in their own little way. They’re apparently responsible for planting a whole bunch of trees every year because they forgot where they buried their acorns. Even if it’s unintentional, we’ll take it as face value and consider these little, adorable creatures heroes either way.

Taking the “hero” bit more literally is Santiago-Perez from Spain, who used PhotoShop to transform your ordinary, run-of-the-mill squirrel into some of the most powerful and well-known superheroes of all time, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Hulk, and even Batman. A Yoda squirrel is thrown somewhere into the mix, too. Check out the rest of the images in the series after the break.

Epic Classic Paintings and Superheroes Mash-up

Classic Superhero Paintings Little Supergirl” by aards2

Thousands of artists flock to Worth1000 every day, where art-centric competitions are held every day with site credits given away as prizes. Over the years, a number of “Superhero ModRen” photo effects contests have been run on the site. “ModRen” is a wordplay of sorts that combines “modern” and “renaissance,” which describes the type of edited images that users are submitting for this category.

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, the contest essentially challenges community members to recreate classic Renaissance paintings while injecting a modern, superhero twist into it. You can find more of interesting entries from the contest after the break.

‘Meat Parade’ is the Hammiest Record Ever

Meat Parade

Crazy over meat? Then march to the beat of two meat-themed songs from Archie McPhee’s newly-released record that’s aptly called Meat Parade. It’s a limited-edition record that looks like a “beautifully marbled ham steak”–is anyone getting hungry after looking at this record? I know I am.

Only a thousand of these meaty records have ever been produced, so if you’ve been collecting other meat-themed items from Archie McPhee (like the Meat Parade Lunchbox and Meat Parade Wrapping Paper Book), then you might want to hurry and pick one of these up before they’re gone for good.
