Star Wars Wampa Cake

Complete with a severed arm and cherry preserve “blood and guts” filling, the Wampa Birthday Cake celebrates my favorite amputated snow monster on the entire planet of Hoth. Buttercream frosting and the DIYer’s mom’s patented sour cream pound cake recipe make this Wampa considerably more tasty than the real thing, but not nearly as fun to cuddle with. Alicia Policia ...

Inverted Pyramid Soda Display Has Caffeine Junkies Taking a Second Glance

I don’t know if I’ve ever put any serious thought into whether or not an inverted pyramid store display was possible or not. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever considered it at all, but Coca-Cola has, and they’ve integrated the idea into their Coke Zero “It’s Possible!” advertising scheme. Coke’s mission was to stand-out in an ocean of calorie ...

A Varsity Jacket for Stormtroopers

The varsity jacket, the universal symbol for jock superiority, unless you’re in the marching band, in which case you’re just an elitist prick. But seriously, I remember the kids from marching band who used to walk around in varsity jackets and they were all assholes. Walking around in a jacket with a drum embroidered on the shoulder does not impress ...

Morbidly Obese Disney Princesses

Growing up with Disney through the 90s, I thought these Disney princesses were smokin’. I don’t care if they’re animated, these were some gorgeous cartoons. But what if Disney princesses were more akin to the realities of modern America? Odds are that they wouldn’t be a size 4, I can tell you that. Ally Bellissimo of the blog Creepy Miranda ...

Slice Your Apples on the MacBook Cutting Board

Until Steve Jobs decides to integrate cutting board technology into the iPad, I guess we’ll have to settle for this MacBook Cutting Board for all of our food preparation needs. The apple tree wood cutting board is designed to look like a unibody MacBook. Apple pie, fresh apple slices, apple scones, Apple iPods, they all have to start somewhere. You ...

Public Restroom Rules: Please, No Mortal Kombat

Public bathroom etiquette is common enough knowledge that most people probably don’t need signs to tell them what’s right and what’s wrong in the restroom and the people who do need the signs aren’t going to listen to them anyway. I’m pretty confident that signs like these will encourage bad bathroom behavior though rather then deter it. I have to ...

Bumper Stickers for Proud Parents of Gamers

I think my parents were always jealous of the other parents who got to show off their perfect little kid by putting one of those “I’m the parent of an honor student” bumper stickers on their cars. Sorry I disappointed you guys. But there’s still hope! Artist Das Chupa created these bumper stickers specifically for parents with gamers as children. ...

The Light That Only Turns On If You Blow In Its Ear

I never understood the whole “blowing in the ear” form of flirtation. I’ve both blown into ears and had my ears blown into and from first hand experience, ear blowing is neither exhilarating, nor an effective form of sexual coercion. I’m guessing its just one of those things that old time TV shows and movies used as a euphemism for ...

The Human Body in HTML and PHP

You know, websites and the human body aren’t that different when it all comes down to it. We both have a head, we both have a body (some beefier than others) and we both have our spots we’d prefer to be hidden to the general public. You can argue that making a baby is a much more entertaining activity, but ...
