Movember might be long over, but that doesn't mean we're still not mustache fans. We're actually dedicated, year-round fans of the crumb catchers, so it's always exciting to discover another 'stache trend on the Web.
2012 was a fantastic year for pranks. Remember that awesomely sassy 'Psh' joke or the adorable Mistletoe setup? We'll say it til we're blue in the face-- we love pranks! They just make life a tad bit more interesting. Now that 2013 has rolled around, we think there's no better way to welcome the year than by bringing you a whole new set of hilarious shenanigans.
The holidays might be winding down, but that doesn't mean we can put our feet up and slip into a post-festivities food coma just yet. T-minus three days until New Year's Eve, and you know what that means-- it's time to get your party on!
On Christmas morning, there's nothing worse than getting a bad reaction to one of your presents. This is especially prevalent among the younger crowd, particularly those under age 12. Why? Well, the kiddos don't necessarily have an understanding of faking appreciation and re-gifting later, so it just comes off as bratty behavior.
No matter what the holiday, we always love getting extra festive. It's not like we need an excuse to wear awful Christmas sweaters or take part in a harmless snowman prank, but doing that stuff during the season makes us look a little less crazy. The season also provides the perfect excuse to go way overboard in the decorating department.
Etsy is basically a place where all the crafty people of the world go to sell their awesome stuff. Particularly when the holiday season rolls around, Etsy is one of our go-to spots to snag one-of-a-kind presents. (But you can also get some rad Christmas decor for yourself there, too!)
Santa's elves are the greatest. For starters, they work super hard in his workshop all year round making our Christmas presents and baking delicious treats so Santa maintains that cookie belly. However, we do think these charming people are highly underrated. They're arguably the most charming part of Christmas, after all! That's why we think it's important to pay homage to the little guys and girls through one of our favorite combos of all-time: babies and costumes.
Little kids are the best. They're pro photobombers and make super weird raps about McDonald's, and that's just scratching the surface. But munchkins can also be the worst. Don't get us wrong-- their adorableness usually overrides any of those 'tudes they try and pull, and you know how we're suckers for anything remotely adorable. But sometimes that awful side emerges in those rare moments of brattiness, and we're left sort of dumbfounded.
One of the best parts about the holiday season is when Santa comes to town for a visit. Every single year, he makes his rounds to American shopping malls so little kids (and adults-- we’re guilty) can have an up-close-and-personal gift-begging session with the guy...
If there's one thing that sucks about sports, it's lockouts. Lockouts mean no games on TV, no dude time, and a greater chance we'll have to spend time with our women learning how to cook cheese fondue and make potpourri centerpieces. That's why we've been pretty annoyed about this whole NHL lockout.
Few things are better than dressing up our pets. How can you resist a Michael Jackson puppy or an Avengers pug? Costumed pets are probably the best part of Halloween. But just because we love it doesn't mean they do. Especially cats. Who knew these little guys were such Halloween-haters? Check out these 15 cats hating on Halloween
