YankMe Candles Bring Disgusting Scents Like ‘Dutch Oven’ to Your Home–Well, Sort Of!

YankMe Candle

 

Can you imagine lighting up a candle that smells like urinal mints or skid marks? What about dutch oven and dog vomit-scented candles? Not very appealing, are they? These are exactly what the labels of YankMe Candles say, and those are the scents that’ll hit you the moment you open the lid.

Who in their right mind would buy candles with such unpleasant scents? Nobody, obviously. YankMe knows that, and they’re only yanking your chain because the candles don’t really smell like what their labels claim once you burn them. There’s actually smelly disc on the inside that’s emanating the stink of urinals and farts, but once you get that out of the way, you’ll be treated to soothing scents that you’d expect from a regular ol’ candle.

The candles retail for $14.99 each.

Breaking Bad Book

Breaking Bad has officially come to an end. But don’t be too sad. Walter White lives on, in one way or another. The show’s much-talked about finale has inspired the release of so many Breaking Bad-related products, parodies, and even artwork.

One from the latter category is this series of classic Choose Your Own Adventure book covers featuring none other than the cast of Breaking Bad. The covers were done by Jon Defreest at the request of Vulture, and can I just say that they’re awesome? Hit the break for two more.

Childhood Ruined: Honest Titles for Disney Movies

Too honest? Well, prepare for more brutal honesty with these series of posters by TheFW portraying some of the most well-known and much-loved movies by Disney. Hit the break for the rest of the series.

Better Than I Imagined: If Disney Made ‘Game of Thrones’…

A lot of people were up in arms when news broke that Disney had acquired LucasFilm and was planning to make another Star Wars movie. I guess the decision made sense since the series was made to be relatively child-friendly. But can you imagine what would happen if HBO gave the reigns of Game of Thrones to Disney?

Some people did more than just imagine, and the result is this video–and it’s surprisingly good. But maybe that’s because I grew up with Disney and princesses always have a soft spot in my heart. Watch the clip and judge for yourself.

Cable Companies Get the Honest Trailer Treatment–And It Ain’t Pretty

The deceit begins almost right after you sign the contract and make your first payment to your cable company. “When will the technician come to set things up?”, you might ask. “Oh, they’ll probably drop by your house tomorrow,” the cable rep might respond.

Three days later and the cable guy is still a no-show. You’ll be left waiting at the door with no cable, no Internet, and no more patience. Thus begins the hate-hate relationship that you’ll have with your current cable company and with the one after that, because contrary to how things might appear–all cable companies are the same.

Check out the hilarious parody above that speaks the absolute truth about cable companies.

So Stupid But So Funny: Batman Replaces Characters in Classic Movie Scenes

Everybody knows Batman. I mean, who wouldn’t recognize him in his black mask with the furrowed brows and pointy ears? When Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy ended last year, fans cried buckets and wished there were more movies to come featuring the caped crusader. And come they will, since a reboot is already in the works.

Until that time comes, though, you’ll have to settle with the countless spoofs and parodies people are making based on the Dark Knight. This particular one we’ve got here shows Batman replacing a host of other characters in some of the most popular classic movies of all time, including Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Home Alone.

Prom Night is Coming: If ‘Game of Thrones’ Were Set in a High School

Game of Thrones is currently one of the hottest shows on television. Or should I say coldest? George R. R. Martin’s compelling tale is transformed into impressive imagery interspersed with extreme violence in the series which hooks viewers almost instantly after they catch an episode or two.

Hoping to catch your attention and interest, though, is this creative parody that changes the setting of the hit franchise into a typical high school. Imagine GOT mixed with teen angst and prom night, and you’ve got School of Thrones in a nutshell. Check it out!

This Is How ‘The Hobbit’ Should Have Ended

The thing about trilogies is that they’re often made to leave you hanging, at least in the case of the first two movies. One of the most excruciating trilogies to wait for a conclusion to was The Lord of the Rings, and it looks like Peter Jackson is putting us all through that same agony once more with The Hobbit. We already know how it’s going to end, since it’s the prequel and all, but seeing the events play out on the big screen is a different experience altogether.

Without going into the debate on whether The Hobbit should or shouldn’t have been made into a trilogy, we present to you this hilarious video of How the Hobbit Should Have Ended. I won’t spoil anything, but all I’m saying is that if this had happened, then there would be no need for LOTR either. Enjoy!
