Aww man! We've been sucked in again. It's another edition of animals in costumes, but we swear it's way worth your time. Why? Well, because there are few things more adorable than dressing up our dogs and cats in holiday garb and showing them off on the Web. We're positive they love it! (Maybe.)
This past Saturday, SantaCon took over New York City. For all of you unfamiliar with this classic American holiday, it's an entire day dedicated to dressing up like Santa Claus and getting a little crazy frolicking around with fellow Saint Nick look-a-likes. It's sort of like a massive Christmas flash mob that makes you feel like you're in a strange alternate universe, but it's actually totally awesome.
One of the reasons we love the holidays so much is that there are tons of ways we can celebrate. Ugly Christmas sweater parties probably rank at the top of our favorites, just because wearing the ugliest cardigan ever in the name of holiday spirit is strangely fun. So what ranks towards the bottom of our favorites list? Office parties.
With the Christmas countdown officially at 11 days, we can hardly contain our excitement for presents and Santa and grandma's awesome cookies. All this holiday hype has got us thinking, though: Do you honestly know the true story of Christmas?
It's been one hell of a great beer week for us. We've learned which brews are awesome gifts (and apology presents for grabbing the wrong "Christmas hams" at the office party) and which ale we should choose to celebrate the impending end of the world. Now, we're stoked to bring you the so-called "world's best beer."
If you're in the market to commit a felony, you've got to get creative these days. With tons of weird crimes already on the books like the NHL dude who was arrested while wearing a Teletubby costume or the guy who was caught cooking pot pie in his tightie whities, it's hard to be original. We've recently come across a law-breaking situation that's pretty refreshingly unique, though. Keywords: naked guy, terrified Chihuahua and laundry.
Is there really anything better than giving or getting a high five? No way! Ok, there are tons of more awesome things. But when it comes to the complimenting game, high fives reign supreme. It's like a super-charged boost of confidence and the best way to show someone they rule.
For most of us here in the good ol' USA, winter means cold, cold weather. While a lot of the time that can really stink, it can also mean the arrival of snow, and we all know that's the best part of the wintry months! Snow angels are possible, intense snowball fights happen and (probably most importantly) snowmen can be made.
Take any food, deep fry it or add some bacon, and you've got us hooked. There's really nothing better than a nasty, greasy mess or extra meat strips to really make our testosterone sing. Think about it-- would you eat raw turkey testicles? Probably not. What about fried turkey testicles? Solid maybe. There are rare moments, however, when these two perfect cooking tactics combine to make an insane creation. This is one of those moments.
Ladies and gentleman, we're back at it again -- it's another round of dogs in holiday costumes. This time, however, there's a huge difference-- we're not responsible in the least bit! See, these dogs did it all to themselves.
With Christmas only two weeks away, Santa is a pretty busy guy these days. He has to double check all presents are made, organize final copies of the naughty and nice lists and do some last-minute reindeer grooming so they're in tip-top shape for Christmas. It's a stressful few weeks, but Santa's been doing it for like, hundreds of years, so he has the whole thing down pat.
We hate to break it to you, but we're all screwed, because the entire world's supply of donkey cheese has been bought out. We have no idea what we're going to eat now, but we do know the guy responsible for the buyout is tennis star Novak Djokovic.
