Sean Bean Meme

By +Ian C

The internet is guilty of many things, one of those things is the propagation of cat videos and memes. These are not funny or appealing to everyone, but they capture the attention of enough people to cause them to spread across consecutive friend groups or channels, sometimes with almost viral speed and depth.

Fortune Cookie - Green Lantern

by +Alexa Rankin

Fortune cookies in bedI love eating Chinese food, and I love opening the fortune cookies after I am done. I don't know about you, but we always play a game with our fortune cookies after finishing the food. It's actually bad luck to open and read your cookie until everyone is done. First you unwrap and crack open your cookie, then recover the fortune and read it out loud adding the words "in bed" at the end to make the fortune funnier. Mostly this is just moderate entertainment, but sometimes you get one which is really funny.

Safety concerns at 2014 World Cup

By +Ian C

The Soccer World Cup is the biggest sporting event on planet Earth and is kicking off on June 12th, culminating on Sunday, July 13th. There are concerns, however, that host nation Brazil may not be ready to handle the event. With less than 3 weeks to the opening ceremony, there are still stadiums which are not fully completed to FIFA standards.

Conjoined Prairie Dogs Celebrate 2nd Birthday

By +Alexa Rankin

2 years ago today, prairie dogs Nibbles and Scooter were born. This in itself may not seem amazing until you learn that Nibbles and Scooter were born conjoined. Twins connected in the womb at the nose. Think of them as a variation on the Siamese squirrel theme.

Michael Sam is now a Ram

Hey gang, this is Brad introducing my good friend Titan Young with another awesome guest post.

It took me ages to come up with that headline which is why this story is so late getting to you guys. So Michael Sam was drafted and the NFL was saved from a potential anti-gay backlash. It took 249 out of the 256 picks for it to happen but Michael Sam is now proud to be a St. Louis Ram. And there is already a book about his exploits.

What got slapped 12 months ago - May 2013

By +Tina Cruris

Happy May everybody. And on behalf of super geek and fellow penguin slapper, +Brad Naylor, Happy Star Wars Day. We meet once again on the first Sunday of a new month, and as usual, I offer my services as guide to the recent history of our satirical news blog.

The way it works is really easy. The date and headline lead you naturally into a teaser of the post, which will hopefully be enough for you to investigate more. Simply click on the headline and you will be introduced to a new window containing that post from our archives. Brace yourselves, folks; you are in for a bumpy ride. Oh you noticed that I copypasted that last paragraph from last month...
