I’ve never seen pumpkins as threatening, but maybe I’m wrong to assume safety in commonplace front porch décor—you never know what’s lurking. The way this Thumbelina-sized fuzzball yips, you’d think he was seeing horrific visions in seasonal kitsch. These furry little jumps and helpless squeals in the face of a paranormal pumpkin melted my heart.
Poor little Bilbo, rightfully yipping away at a haunted pumpkin to no avail. I trust animal intuition: there must be a message from the occult embedded somewhere in this mini squash. Read More

Apparently, laughing while black can be dangerous.
A group eleven women — ten of them black — were kicked off the Napa Valley Wine Train for laughing too loudly during a book club outing.
The Napa Valley Register writes that the women boarded the Wine Train at 11 a.m. on Saturday and were told to leave the train in St. Helena, reportedly because of noise complaints. The women, including an 83-year-old grandmother, were escorted through six cars and off the train, where police were waiting for them. A van then took them back to Napa. Read More
It all started when Tamar Anitai shared via Instagram this disturbing photo she found in Oprah Winfrey's, O Magazine.
The image accompanies advice from O's April issue, stating that crop tops can only be worn, "if you have a flat stomach." As if!
Within a few days, Anitai's post went viral along with her advice to "stop telling women what to wear," and "wear what you love, what makes you feel confident." It wasn't long before #RockTheCrop became a trending hashtag. Read More

I love the internet, because it allows for pictures like this to be exposed to the world. I don't know how many times I've ordered a burrito and thought "I feel like I'm about to ingest an infant." Which I've always thought was a unique, vaguely disturbing thought- apparently it's not! This picture proves that I'm not a sicko! Hallelujah! Burritos have the same heft and warmth of a baby. Except burritos are significantly more delicious. This picture is also great because it's an actual FOOD BABY. Awww yeah!
Viral images, man. So good! Sometimes, you just need some visual stimulation. Read More
