Christian Mingle or Christian Money Pit?

by +Brad Naylor

By now you have probably heard of, a popular internet dating sight designed just for Christians. If you haven't then I just explained what it was in the previous sentence. Their TV advertising campaign emphasizes that they can help you "find God's match for you".

Hi everyone, it's me again. This week I am paying my respects to would be birthday boy JFK. If he was still alive he would be celebrating his 96th birthday today.

3D printers - Novelty toy or criminal's joy?

I have had a story about 3D printers floating around in my mind for a few months now. Ever since a friend of mine showed off the project which he created in his college class and those wacky Big Bang Boys touched on the topic with their mini replica 3D printed dolls. Then the news that the design for a working 3D printable gun had been downloaded over 100,00 times convinced me that 3D printers were definitely a hot topic.

Happy Mammorial Day

Today is the last Monday in May so folks here in the US will be celebrating Memorial Day. The Federal holiday is a day for remembering the men and women of the United States armed forces who gave their lives in service of their country. Memorial Day weekend traditionally marks the start of Summer and prompts us to break out the grills and BBQ 20 lbs of assorted meat, and drink our own body weight in watery beer and cheap margaritas.

Ban on gay scouts lifted

by +Alexa Rankin

Boy scout leaders from across America recently voted to stop exclusion due to "sexual orientation or preference alone". The motion was passed with a 60% yes vote from over 1400 volunteer leaders last Thursday. The ban on gay scouts will be officially nullified on Jan 1st 2014, although some troops have already pledged to allow young gay men to become 'honorary scouts' until such time as they may be formally inducted.

by +Tina Cruris

Mandarin speaking families in the US have launched a campaign to have local authorities change road signs found near schools to read "School Crossing" instead of the familiar shortened version "School Xing" claiming that it is offensive and misleading.

Twit and run

by +Ian C

A shamefully dumb British driver waived her right to silence or as it is known in the US, 'Miranda Rights' by tweeting her involvement in a criminal act last Sunday. "Definitely knocked a cyclist off his bike earlier—I have right of way he doesn't even pay road tax! #bloodycyclists" has been read by millions of tweeters including @NorwichPoliceUK.

8 Bit News - Women Don't Need Bras

by +Alexa Rankin

8 Bit NewsHere is another 8 Bit News story, where we use 8 Bit images so that the story is not overshadowed by the glossy graphics which can so often detract from the truly important elements.

Today I am diving into the heart of a story which surfaced a few weeks ago and was laughed off by many media outlets as mere frivolity.

The new Lesbian flag

The Island of Lesbos is the third largest of the Greek Islands and can be found in the northeastern Aegean Sea, mere miles off the coast of Turkey. The narrow Mytilini Strait is all that separates this independent Greek Island from it's previous Turkish owners.

Hulk Hogan attempts to sanitize the internet

by +Ian C

For those of you who were wondering where we have been for the last week, here is one possible explanation...

On April 25th 2013, Terry Gene Bollea, known to you and I as Hulk Hogan, became the proud owner of his very own porno. The copyright to the sex tape featuring Hogan and Heather Clem transferred from his ex-friend, Bubba 'The Love Sponge' Clem to Hogan via the Court of the Sixth Judicial Circuit in and for Pinellas County, Florida.

Top 5 badly chosen business names

by +Ian C

One of the first rules when starting a business is to have a catchy name. A name that will stick in people's minds as a means of free advertising. A name which will pass by word of mouth so that everyone will know who you are and what you do.

The following businesses followed the first rule, but failed to keep reading to rule 2 which states "Don't give your business a name which causes people to laugh out loud and share it on satirical news blogs as a backup post for having nothing better to write about."

Gift Ideas for Mother's Day

by +Tina Cruris

As an advice guru, people are always asking me what they should get their mother for mother's day, and I tell them, "I don't know". Every mother is different. This week I have had about a dozen emails from people wanting me to do the hard work for them. If you are really that sadly lacking in imagination then get her some flowers, that will always be a hit, but you are more likely to know what your mom's interests are better than I would.

In America, Cinco de Mayo is observed to commemorate the creation of Mexico's number one exported beer, Corona, which was invented on May 5th, 1925, under the leadership of Cervecería Modelo.

Kris Kross rapper dead

by +Brad Naylor

Kross dressing rapper Chris Kelly (34) died yesterday in an Atlanta hospital of a suspected drug overdose. Kelly and his rap partner, Chris Smith will forever be synonymous with the 90's rap anthem, Jump. They were easily recognizable due to their penchant for wearing their clothes back to front which I called "Kross Dressing" way back when they first hit the scene.

Bubes Says - Name Your Price

Hi ladies, i'm back again. I have been so busy this week with my other job. Much as I enjoy being a musician and international celebrity, I like to give back to the community so I work part time at a popular insurance company. They needed someone to fill in for their regular spokesperson, so naturally they asked me.

May Caption Contest

Happy May everyone. To celebrate a new month we have launched a new caption contest for your enjoyment. The concept is simple and is understood globally, but if you have been living under a rock, or in Wyoming, here are the instructions.

Look at the image below and think of a phrase which when used in conjunction with the image generates a humor related emotional response. This could be as subtle as a smile or as extreme as rolling on the floor or losing control of the bladder. In rare cases, all 3 have been recorded at the same time.

Once you have decided on your phrase, we encourage you to share your wit (not a Spoonerism) in the comments section, HERE. The funniest entry received before Midnight (STP time) on May 31st will be declared the winner.
