America’s vice presidents have never looked so awesome. These tentacular ink and watercolor portraits are the work of Los Angeles-based artist and writer Jonathan Crow. His ongoing Veeptopus series depicts each US vice president with an octopus hanging out on his head (although he made a slight, yet somehow very appropriate, exception for Dick Cheney).
The portraits often accompanied by interesting historical tidbits and sometimes Crow deviates from straight cephalopod-VP portraiture to create wonderfully weird(er) pieces such as President Taft riding a badger.
Prints of the Veeptopus series are available via Jonathan Crow’s Etsy shop.
Sure, our new Eagle Talons look fantastic with our Eagle Mask, but we think they are just as amazing on their own. So, we came up with a list of things that are WAY MORE AWESOME when you’re wearing Eagle Talons. As you can see, listening to metal music, perching, teaching, picking pumpkins, being surprised, doing customer service, eating lunch and even playing prog-rock on multiple keyboards are all improved by having talons.
You remind me of the babe.
The babe with the power.
The power of voodoo.
Somewhere in the wilds of Chicago there’s a babysitter looking for work, an awesome babysitter, and his name is Jareth, the Goblin King. You’ll notice that all of the contact info tabs at the bottom of this ad have been torn off. Jareth’s magical services are in high demand in the Windy City.

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.
