Look closely at those handprints. Notice anything strange? They belong to the legendarily awesome screenwriter, director and entertainer Mel Brooks. He’s been so good at making people laugh for so many years now that, when presented with the (long-overdue) honor of leaving his hand and footprints outside the famous TCL Chinese Theatre along the Hollywood Walk of Fame, he donned a prosthetic pinky to immortalize himself with an 11-finger handprint.
The fake finger is so convincing that we didn’t spot it right away, even though it’s exactly what we were looking for. The ceremony coincided with the 40th anniversary of Young Frankenstein, one of the most awesomely funny movies ever made.

Happiness is a dog with an open sun roof and all the world’s smells shooting straight up his nose. This blissed out Weimaraner is named Pilatus, Pilly for short, and he’s enjoying the heck out of a ride in pylit4lyfe's car, cheeks and eyelids flapping in the wind.
Here’s hoping we all get to personally experience moments of awesome happiness like this (although perhaps not quite this windy).

First came the delightful Dirds (Dog-birds), followed by the marvelous Meowls (Cat-owls), today the Department of Awesome Animal Hybrids introduces us to another spectacularly surreal creature: Bears with Beaks.
From the Angry Eagoala and Panda Bearrot to the Sad Beargle and the Hungy Pelibear, these beaky bears are the product of the collective imagination and photoshop skills of a two-year-old subreddit called… wait for it… BearsWithBeaks. Thanksgiving just got a whole lot more interesting now that we know about the Wild Bearky.
Head over to BearsWithBeaks for many more examples of this hilarious, yet strangely touching hybrid species. Just don’t leave your fingers where they can nip them.
Thanks to an awesome visionary known only as the GIGABEETLE, we’re learning that, when he isn’t busy battling Kaiju, Godzilla has a very active social life. There’s cosplay and gaming and dancing and coloring and exercising and so much more.
io9 just drew our attention to not one, but two awesomelt amusing Tumblr sites: Slug Solos and Bass Dogs, both of which are curated by Michael M. As you can see from this selection of highlights, Slog Solos features guitarists playing their hearts out on gigantic slugs (and pairs well with a delicious Banana Slug Sucker). Over at Bass Dogs the bassists are keeping the groove going with unexpectedly musical canines held in place of their basses. Two more reasons we’re so very glad Teh Internets exist.
In an episode of The Simpsons entitled “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?” (Season 2, Episode 15), at the request of his newly-discovered half-brother Herb, Homer designs a new car: “The Homer.” It’s the car of Homer’s dreams, a car for the “average” American, a car so ridiculous and expensive that it completely ruins Powell Motors his half-brother’s business.
That hilarious episode first aired back in 1991. Now, more than twenty years later, engineers at Porcubimmer Motors have created The Homer for real, complete with a bubble dome, a horn that plays “La Cucaracha,” and, we’re guessing, an engine that sounds like “the world’s coming to an end.”
The glorious geekery of The Unipiper, otherwise known as Portland, OR denizen Brian Kidd (previously featured here), just reached awesome new heights with this fiery tribute to the one and only Monty Python and their cult classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Dressed as King Arthur, the Unipiper rides his unicycle and plays the movie’s theme on his flaming bagpipes, all while being closely followed by his faithful standard-bearing, coconut-banging porter. We’ve no doubt that if the video had run longer we would’ve eventually seen a Trojan rabbit and an insult-slinging French soldier. Keep your eyes peeled for shrubberies.
