Jody Steel's Pop Culture Thigh Art
27 sep 2013 20:49

Artist, aspiring filmmaker, and current Emerson College student Jody Steel has been generating buzz online lately with the pop culture portraits she doodles during class. Her subjects include fictional characters like Breaking Bad's Walter White and Game of Thrones' Daenerys Targaryen, and artists like musician Thom Yorke and author Neil Gaiman. Also, she draws the portraits on her right thigh. Since she began uploading pictures of the drawings to the Internet earlier this month, she's received notoriety both online and offline -- and zero pushback from her professors. One of them was so impressed by the work that she gave Steel a job illustrating the book she was writing. Click through to see some of her most interesting pop culture portraits. You can also check out the full scope of Steel's work -- which includes more thigh drawings of everything from animals to open wounds, in addition to pieces drawn on more traditional canvases -- on her website and Facebook page.

Guillermo Del Toro Is Working On The Next Simpsons Treehouse Of Horror
27 sep 2013 20:47

Yup, like the headline says, the next Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episode will feature an opening created by the director of Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy and Pacific Rim. I guess it makes sense — The Simpsons doesn’t seem terribly concerned with being funny anymore, so why not go the other direction and hire guys like Guillermo Del Toro to make their Halloween episode legitimately scary? Hit the jump for some more details… According to The Hollywood Reporter, Del Toro’s opening will “feature monsters and classic characters from horror films of the past several decades.” Hmmm! Well, that certainly sounds Del Toro-esque. The rest of the episode will of course do the usual three short stories thing. The first “sees Homer Simpson traveling around Springfield wreaking havoc in a rhyming take on a popular children’s story” (no thanks), the second begins when “Bart is beheaded during a kite accident, and…” (I’ve heard enough) and the third is a parody of the 1932 film Freaks starring Moe and Mr. Burns, which actually sounds like not a terrible idea. The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror XXIV airs on October 6th, and I’ll be watching, because I barely remember a time in my life when they weren’t making new Simpsons episodes, and I don’t know what I’d do if they stopped. Probably feel very old and sad.

Andy Samberg Tells Conan About Adam Sandler Attending His Wedding
27 sep 2013 20:43

I would never subject myself to sitting through ninety minutes of a 21st century Happy Madison production but despite never seeing the film I feel plenty confident in stating that Andy Samberg telling Conan O’Brien the story of how Adam Sandler showed up to his rehearsal dinner in character from That’s My Boy and screaming things like, “Oh, am I f*cking embarrassing you, buddy?” is infinitely better than anything else that has ever had to do with that movie. I mean, sure, Adam Sandler is essentially putting a hex on the marriage from the very start, but I still enjoy the idea of Sandler not taking himself seriously in mixed company and going all in on the bit. That part starts around halfway through above, after Samberg recounts the joys of losing his virginity — HAD SEX-style — on his wedding night. And below are some action-comedy acting tips for all you newly found Brooklyn Nine Nine fans.

Watch Vince Gilligan Announce His First Post-'Breaking Bad' Project
27 sep 2013 20:39

One of the most talked-about subjects in the entertainment world is what Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan will do now that he’s done running arguably the greatest show ever. We know he’ll have a hand in the Saul Goodman spinoff, and yesterday news leaked that CBS has picked up a drama script he originally wrote — and they originally rejected — back in 2002. But neither of those projects are what’s next in line for Gilligan. As he revealed in an exclusive on Conan, his next move actually has nothing to do with the entertainment industry — it’s far more ambitious. The man is no longer just in the TV or movie business. He’s very clearly in the empire business.

The NSA Hires Way Too Many Creepy Stalkers
27 sep 2013 20:38

Part of the reason any reasonable person should be skeptical of the NSA’s claim that most Americans are safe from its prying eyes is the fact that the only check is that they needed “51% confidence” the person they were spying on was a foreign national. And unsurprisingly, that power has been abused. Senator Chuck Grassley essentially asked the NSA to fork over any instances of “willful abuse”, and the NSA voluntarily coughed up the twelve cases that have come up since 2003. And unfortunately, it’s ugly: Out of the twelve incidents, five involved invading the privacy of American citizens who had nothing to do with the mission. Worse, almost all of the incidents essentially involve some form of stalking. One guy in particular stands out, claiming he was only looking at his ex-girlfriend’s emails and phone calls to “test” the system. Another analyst tried to pretend she was looking up her boyfriend’s friends because she didn’t want to get involved with “shady characters.” And one incident had an analyst doing this to his girlfriends for five years. All of this violates the human rights and privacy of those involved, and it doesn’t appear that anybody involved in these incidents spent a day in jail for that; most of these people were allowed to resign before the Department of Justice could take disciplinary action. Worse, a lot of this is borderline stalking behavior, or outright stalking, and that was prosecuted either. Realistically, this is also only what the NSA has caught. Abuse could be endemic, or really could be limited to a few bad eggs. But since the NSA has no accountability to, you know, the people who bought them all these fancy toys, we’re probably never going to know.

Watch Jimmy Kimmel Address Kanye West's Twitter Rant In His Monologue
27 sep 2013 20:37

As the entire internet is aware by now, Kanye West unleashed a Twitter character assault on Jimmy Kimmel yesterday in response to a Kanye “Kid Re-Kreation” parody Kimmel aired earlier in the week. Kimmel playfully acknowledged Kanye’s series of nonsensical 140 characters or less on Twitter not long after yesterday, but waited until his monologue (or maybe the monologue was taped before his tweets?) to full-on address the whole thing. And by “address the whole thing” I mean detail to his audience ever weird aspect of his earlier phone conversation with Kanye and then go through Kanye’s tweets one by one to subtly undermine them. The “good p**sy” tweet was practically begging for it…

Apple May Be Making A Gold iPad Mini
27 sep 2013 20:36

This news is less than surprising, given our apparently bottomless lack of taste as a species; a gold iPad Mini might be on the way as part of the Mini refresh. And it’ll also have the amusingly useless nipple scanner…errr…Touch ID because why the hell not? The rumor comes courtesy a Chinese site called DoNews, which has a spotty track record when it comes to this stuff, but it’s not like they’re telling us something a large corporation that likes money wouldn’t do. And honestly, it makes sense. Apple likes its mobile devices to look fairly similar to each other. The iPad and the iPhone have generally mirrored one another in design, and the Mini followed the trend; as wrong as all the old jokes about an iPad being four iPhones duct-taped together turned out to be, both are unmistakably Apple products that are part of the same line. And the iPad Mini is staggeringly popular, to the point where it’s outselling the iPad. So, considering how quickly the gold iPhone sold out, to some degree it only makes financial sense to give the people what they want and sell a matching Mini. All that said, it does so far appear that the iPad line, at least, will be spared the indignity of becoming a prop for insecure people to try and tell you how wealthy they are, but since those people will just have the thing gold-plated anyway, we guess in the end it’s a wash.

An Oklahoma Boy Asked The News For Help To Push His Brother In A 5K
27 sep 2013 20:36

There are a lot of sporting events happening tonight — the Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers battling for the final wild card spot in the American League, for example — but nothing is as important as a 5K race happening at Oklahoma City’s John Marshall Mid-High School, run by a 10-year old boy and his brother. Tobias Bass, 10, reached out to OK’s News 9 not for money, fame or a hand-out, but because he wanted them to ask their viewers if anybody had a jogger pusher he could borrow … because he wants his big brother, suffering from Cerebral Palsy, to run the race with him. He told the news about how sad it makes him when he sees his brother staring out through the window at kids running and laughing and having fun, and how he just wants him to experience what everyone else can. This kid is amazing and you can see every piece of his heart in the News 9 interview — hell, he wants to be an army pastor when he grows up so he can comfort men dying on the front lines — and I, like the news team and everyone else who hears his story, want him to have everything he needs.

Watch Supermodel Kate Upton Own Jimmy Fallon At Flip Cup
27 sep 2013 20:00

I like Kate Upton plenty as a model, and I LOVE her as a Dougie enthusiast, but after watching this clip from last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon her flip cup game is what I respect most about her. She didn’t go to college so what you’re witnessing is sheer drink and flip ability, you see. The best news of all is now when we inevitably hang out for the first time I won’t have to awkwardly segue into drinking games as planned. “Nice dog. Say, do you know what rhymes with hip pup?”

Cher Lloyd + T.I. Serve It Up in 'I Wish' Video
25 sep 2013 16:41

Cher Lloyd plays a hapless waitress without a butt and a rack in her video for ‘I Wish’ — and she has her sights set squarely on rapper T.I. The singer undergoes a bit of a transformation, courtesy of stuffing her bra and a swipe of glittery gold eye shadow across her lids. But regardless, she still catches his eye, angering the tall, hot, model-like babes with which he entered her place of employ! It’s a playful, fun and flirty look at the British singer, who is clearly having a good time cozying up to the rapper. They end up exuding a brotherly-sisterly chemistry by the end of the video.

'Need for Speed' Trailer: Aaron Paul Goes All 'Fast and Furious'
25 sep 2013 16:28

From “Blue Sky” to blue collar, ‘Breaking Bad‘ breakout Aaron Paul headlines the first ‘Need for Speed‘ trailer, giving the ‘Fast and Furious‘ franchise a run for its box office money. ‘Need for Speed,’ based on the popular car-racing video game, sees Paul trade in Jesse Pinkman for blue-collar mechanic Tobey Marshall. Per the official synopsis: Framed for a crime he didn’t commit, muscle car mechanic and street racer Tobey gets out of prison determined to settle the score with the man responsible for his false conviction. Tobey tears up the road in a gritty cross-country journey— one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. Dominic Cooper (‘Dead Man Down‘) plays the man responsible for his imprisonment, a wealthy ex-NASCAR driver named Dino Brewster. Tobey partnered up with him as a means to save his failing garage, but the relationship went sour after an unsanctioned car race turned disastrous. No matter how you feel about seeing this video game brought to the big screen, ‘Fast and Furious’ has proven there’s an audience for this by becoming one of Universal Pictures’ more profitable brands, and now DreamWorks seems hellbent on tagging into this market. Plus, it already has Paul’s ‘Breaking Bad’ fanbase clamoring for tickets. ‘Need for Speed’ also stars Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Imogen Poots, Dakota Johnson and Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi, and is set for release in spring of 2014.

'Star Wars Rebels' Eyes Freddie Prinze Jr. and More
25 sep 2013 16:26

It’s become increasingly difficult to separate truth from rumor in the ongoing revamp of the ‘Star Wars‘ franchise, as every day seems to bring new reports of leading actors or fan-favorite characters slated to join the new film trilogy. If nothing else, however, confirmed animated series ‘Star Wars Rebels‘ has made new strides in shoring up a voice cast, from the likes of Freddie Prinze Jr. and ‘The Butler’ star David Oyelowo, himself previously rumored for a role in the films. The Hollywood Reporter broke news of the casting negotiations, adding to the list of Oyelowo and Prinze that Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray and Steven Jay Blum have also been contacted for leading roles in the series set to debut in late 2014. Oyelowo (‘Lincoln,’ ‘Interstellar’) had recently been rumored for a filmic ‘Star Wars’ role, though his potential placement among the ‘Star Wars Rebels’ cast wouldn’t necessarily preclude the possibility, either. So far, we know that ‘Star Wars Rebels’ will take place “in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape,” while concept art of a new Millenium Falcon-esque starship serving as a central location has made its way online. Picking up where the now-canceled ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars‘ left off, ‘Star Wars Rebels’ will feature on the creative side screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg (‘X-Men: First Class,’ ‘Elysium‘), who’s writing the first episode, as well as ‘Clone Wars’ supervising director Dave Filoni and ‘Young Justice’ producer Greg Weisman. What do you think? Are you interested to see what ‘Star Wars Rebels’ brings to the canon next year before ‘Episode 7′ debuts in 2015? Who would you like to see populate the cast of ‘Star Wars Rebels’? Check out the original announcement below, and hit us with your ideas in the comments!

Pearl Jam Unveil Performance-Based 'Sirens' Video
25 sep 2013 16:20

Pearl Jam are keeping it simple for the second video to emerge from their ‘Lightning Bolt’ album. The guys have just unveiled the new clip for ‘Sirens’ and it’s strictly a performance piece. But as with most Pearl Jam performances, there’s little ordinary about it. The veteran rockers hit their stride on this mid-tempo track, which showcases not only Eddie Vedder‘s vocal work, but also some impressive backing vocals from drummer Matt Cameron. Shot mostly in a dark room lit with the occasional white and red lighting, the video takes the viewer right into the crux of the performance with the band. In addition, to Vedder and Cameron, there’s also a spotlight for guitarist Mike McCready who busts out a second guitar midway into the clip to bring some electric licks to the track. Overall, ‘Sirens’ is a pretty straightforward video, but if anything this promo should show fans that the band has a solid new song to perform live once they hit the road this fall. You can count ‘Sirens’ among the standout new tracks that will make up ‘Lightning Bolt.’ The disc drops Oct. 15.

Dave Grohl Remembers Last Conversation With Kurt Cobain
25 sep 2013 16:12

Together, Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl made history. Nirvana broke new ground with ‘Nevermind’ in 1991 and the living members of the band are currently celebrating the 20-year anniversary of the band’s follow-up effort, 1993′s ‘In Utero.’ In a new interview, Grohl speaks with Rolling Stone about his relationship with the late Kurt Cobain, revealing his final exchange with the singer. When asked about the early days and living together as a band, Grohl recalled, “Living with Kurt was funny. He isolated himself in a lot of ways, emotionally. But he had a genuine, sweet nature. He never intentionally made you feel uncomfortable. Living with him in that tiny apartment in Olympia, Washington, there was some sort of bond. But it was much different than his relationship with Krist.” Speaking about that bond, Grohl characterized it as something more kin than what he personally shared with Cobain. He explains, “I looked at Krist and Kurt as soulmates. The two had such a beautiful, unspoken understanding of each other. Those two guys, together, totally defined the Nirvana aesthetic. Every quirk, all the strange things that came from Nirvana came from Krist and Kurt.” An overdose in Rome nearly claimed Cobain’s life prior to his eventual 1994 death, and Grohl recalls his final conversation with his colleague and friend. He states, “I called Kurt after Rome. I said, ‘Hey, man, that really scared everybody. And I don’t want you to die.’ Then I saw him at our accountant’s office [in Seattle]. He was walking out as I was walking in. He smiled and said, ‘Hey, what’s up?’ And I said, ‘I’ll give you a call.’ And he said, ‘Okay.’” Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ album turns 22 today (Sept. 24), while the ‘In Utero’ 20th anniversary edition (available here) arrives in stores today after celebrating its official 20th anniversary over the weekend.

Metallica Rock New York With Performances at Yankee Stadium
25 sep 2013 16:02

When you head to New York for the weekend, you’d better make the most of your time in the Big Apple. And that’s exactly what the guys in Metallica just did, delivering a blistering set at the legendary Apollo Theater on Sept. 21 before making a surprise appearance at Yankee Stadium the following day. The band was on hand at Yankee Stadium to help celebrate the career of Mariano Rivera, the intimidating pitcher who’s taken the mound countless times to the strains of Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman.’ Retiring after a 19-year career in the majors, Rivera might have been playing his final home game with the Yankees, and they made it count with a nearly hour-long ceremony that included appearances from former coaches and teammates, the retiring of his jersey and a live performance of — you guessed it — ‘Enter Sandman.’ You can watch video above. In addition to the song (which they kicked off by saying “This one’s for you, Mariano”) the band — decked out in special Yankees-style Metallica jerseys — presented Rivera with a giant autographed speaker with Rivera’s No. 42, the name Metallica and ‘Sandman’ on the front. “The whole thing was special, I wasn’t expecting something like that,” Rivera told ESPN. “A lot of emotions. It was more than what I was thinking.”

Paul McCartney Pays a Visit to Jimmy Kimmel
25 sep 2013 16:01

With his ‘New‘ album just around the corner, it’s time for Paul McCartney to start making the publicity rounds, including his first-ever visit to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ McCartney stopped by Kimmel’s late-night ABC talk show last night and took a few moments to chat about the new record while reminiscing about some of the high points from one of rock’s most successful and storied careers. And speaking of all that success, here’s something fans might find funny: Not only does McCartney still suffer performance anxiety, but he often has nightmares about playing disastrous gigs with the Beatles. (You can watch about 12 minutes of the interview in the videos above and below.) “You can’t control what goes on in your dreams anyway,” explained McCartney. “I’m there, say, with the Beatles, and we’re playing, and the audience starts to leave. ‘What do we do? What do we do? Quick! ‘Long Tall Sally” — they’re still leaving. You wake up in a cold sweat.” McCartney also discussed the Beatles’ historic first trip to Hollywood, saying his most prominent memory is of “Lot of screaming — which is, you know, great. Beautiful girls — we were young, we were healthy, we were ready to roll.” The band also met Elvis Presley, which left them starstruck because “we were little kids from Liverpool, growing up hearing this first burst of rock ‘n’ roll, really — we hadn’t heard that kind of stuff, so it was magical. We always wanted to meet him.” The meeting took place despite some interference from Presley’s manager, the infamous Colonel Tom Parker. As McCartney mused during the interview, “I think we were a threat — he was popular, but we were kind of taking over.”

Motley Crue Debut Fiery Stage Show for Las Vegas 'Evening in Hell'
25 sep 2013 16:00

Motley Crue promised state-of-the-art pyrotechnics for their ‘An Intimate Evening in Hell’ residency at the the Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and it looks like they weren’t just blowing smoke. According to preeminent rich & famous lifestyle chronicler Robin Leach, who previewed the band’s set for the Las Vegas Sun, attendees should “expect fire alarms and flashing-light warnings” for a fire-filled show that will reportedly find Tommy Lee drumming “inside a mystical symbol also set on fire” and Vince Neil singing ‘Home Sweet Home’ inside a “white-angel Liberace-esque cloak…that will be sprayed with fire retardant nightly.” Leach secured an endorsement from Vegas fixture Carrot Top, who enthused, “You can feel the heat! All of Las Vegas will know the show’s started — it’s that loud and fiery. It wasn’t just the Joint that shook from it; the entire hotel did.” “There is no show like this. There never has been, and there never will be,” Neil told Leach. “You’ve seen video fire from other rock acts on tour, but never the real thing. It’s more than any rock group has ever produced or attempted. It really is entering the depths of hell. There’s fire all around and fire coming down from above.” Neil went on to insist that fans could look forward to more than just special effects; in fact, he says the band’s set list puts him through his paces more doggedly than most. “I don’t get one break,” he explained. “We start with a song from when we began 30 years ago. We’ve reached back over the years to old hits to match up with new hits. It’s a difficult set list for me vocally — ‘Too Young to Fall in Love’ is no easy song to perform. We rehearsed the entire show in L.A., but we tested the entire set list with shows in Oklahoma and Miami. The reaction was incredible.” The band couldn’t do everything they wanted to do — Leach’s article mentions “plans for robots” that were dropped due to safety concerns, and questions whether fire marshals will allow them to attempt setting a stuntman on fire atop a blazing piano — but the end result still sounds suitably over the top. “We have the best fire tech experts in the world. This is so over the top, the only thing cool is what we do!” laughed Neil. “Basically, we’re setting everything on fire in a way that’s never been done before.” Based on the photo-filled Twitter feeds of Leach and Crue bassist Nikki Sixx, it looks like everybody had fun and avoided the emergency room. The first fan video from the show has now turned up, too — you can check that out below. ‘An Intimate Evening in Hell’ is scheduled to run from Sept. 18 through Oct. 6.

Justin Timberlake + Jimmy Fallon Show the Absurdity of Hashtag Overuse
25 sep 2013 15:49

The more we see Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon, the more we want them to have their own show together. Their latest joint effort? Showing everyone just how pervasive the hashtag culture has become online — and how utterly ridiculous it is. In the skit, JT and JF have a conversation (a real face-to-face one, remember those?) but they still use hashtags. Only since they actually say the word “hashtag” and include a descriptive hand gesture every time, it doesn’t take long for the whole thing to spiral into the absurd. (Where else will you find cookies, Ray Romano, sexy ghosts and ‘We Can’t Stop’ all in the same chat?) Remember, kids: Friends don’t let friends overuse hashtags.

Taylor Swift Has New Hairstyle at 'Romeo + Juliet' Premiere [PHOTOS]
25 sep 2013 15:49

Taylor Swift has been sporting impecabbly styled dishwater blond hair with bangs for a while now. But the starlet mixed it up for the red carpet premiere of ‘Romeo + Juliet.’ What’s her new look like? She’s still got the solid blond, which unfortunately looks almost green in certain lighting and doesn’t do her much justice. She also still has bangs … but with a twist! Swift swept her bangs to the side for the event. The result was some what mixed. On the bright side, you can see the ‘Love Story’ singer’s bright blue eyes a lot better, and the sidesweep accentuates her cheekbones as well. On the negative side, well, they’re simply too short to sweep effectively, and it just looks like she’s stuck in an awkward growing out phase, especially because of the wispy flyaways on the left side of her face. We’re not having a ‘Love Story’ with this style, but hopefully it’s a hint at a return to her once-signature curls. We miss them!

18 Extremely Unfortunate Choices of Font
25 sep 2013 14:10

The problem with getting all fancy with fonts is that sometimes your store that sells pouches looks like a store full of douches. (We’re pretty sure this is exclusively a Renaissance fair problem.) “LI” is easily turned into a U, and suddenly your video store looks like it’s only distributing videos off an adult nature. We never thought we’d say this, but this almost makes us appreciate comic sans. At least it’s legible. See what we mean below. (Note: while many of these words look NSFW, they really aren’t. So show them to your boss to give him or her a lesson in choosing an appropriate font for clients.)

Will Ferrell Brought His Kids to the Emmys and it Was Hilarious
25 sep 2013 14:01

A high point in a generally dull evening, Will Ferrell brought his kids onstage to present awards at the 2013 Emmys. Saying he was just filling in and couldn’t find childcare, Ferrell’s three kids stood onstage next to him while he announced the year’s best comedy series (It was ‘Modern Family.’ Again.) and best drama series. Clearly every award at every awards show should be given out this way.

Prankster Blasts ‘Girly’ Music in Public
25 sep 2013 13:56

We’re not quite sure what makes this a prank, but the word’s in the title, so apparently that’s what this is. Really, it’s not much more than a guy playing music on his Kindle without the headphones plugged in all the way. Apparently this is a big deal in places other than NYC, where even if somebody’s headphones are plugged in all the way, the music is turned up so loud that your morning commute is basically guaranteed to be scored by Tyga. Perhaps the joke is that guys aren’t supposed to listen to Britney Spears or Miley Cyrus? That’s not a funny joke: that’s just a lame reiteration of old stereotypes that pretty much vanished the moment ‘Toxic’ came out and friends made us listen to it on repeat in college dorm rooms decorated with Sisters of Mercy posters. Apparently, it’s funny though — in one short day the video has already gotten over 35,000 views on YouTube. Maybe after nine months of living with a (male) roommate who blasts Spice Girls and Natalie Imbruglia on the regular, we don’t get the joke.

Cast of 'Seinfeld' Has Mixed Feelings About Drake
25 sep 2013 13:54

Drake‘s new album officially dropped today (even though all the cool kids already listened to it last week,) and we know exactly what you’re thinking — sure you’ve read the reviews, but what does the cast of ‘Seinfeld’ think of Drake? Well, they can’t decide. At least they didn’t at when ‘Thank Me Later’ was released. We speculate that they would still have mixed to negative emotions about this new one, because they are characters written by Larry David, who doesn’t really like anything. Also, they’re talking about their friend named Drake who everybody likes, but then decides they don’t like. (Though Elaine has always been lukewarm on the “Drakette.”) All we can say is, that regardless of Kramer’s thoughts on NWTS, we’ll be forever grateful that the album spawned these particular gems of internet genius:

5 Warning Signs We Can’t Take Seriously
25 sep 2013 13:51

Warning signs are pretty important, right? This is especially true when they tell us when something’s dangerous or harmful. Obvious stuff. But sometimes law enforcement (or regular folk) go the extra mile and choose to warn people of more-important-than-normal circumstances, like not drinking the toilet water or refraining from licking walls. Trust us– these cautionary signs are a vital part of our society, and without them, we’d be riding the buffalo… or something. Just kidding– there’s no way we can take these warnings seriously, but that’s the best part! Check out 5 of our favorites.

Bike Thief Can't Outsmart Good Samaritan With a Camera
25 sep 2013 12:14

Not all crime fighters in the big city are superheroes. In this video, a man armed with nothing but a camera catches a would-be bike thief in New York City. The crook gives up pretty quickly, but wastes no time in trying again a few blocks later, only to have the man with the camera tail him and flag down the police. Moral of the story: the man with the camera oughta consider getting a cape because he just might be a superhero.

25 sep 2013 12:11

Last night, ‘Hello Ladies’ star Stephen Merchant, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jimmy Fallon squared off in a lip sync contest, and things quickly got out of hand. What?

Shake the Room,’ the first (and best) performance given. It’s definitely entertaining.

Baboon Gropes Female Reporter on Live TV, Smiles Like a Creep
25 sep 2013 12:09

Fox 40 Sacramento reporter Sabrina Rodriguez came across her most eager interview ever when Mickey the baboon decided to show he’s all hands while she did a live report from the Lodi Grope, er, Grape Festival. Oh, the perils of live TV. To Rodriguez’s credit, she rolled with punches — or the paws, in this instance — and carried on like it was monkey business as usual. That said, TheFW does not condone this kind of behavior, even in the animal kingdom. Further proof that animals are actually huge jerks.
