It’s been almost two years since we last featured today’s Best of the Interweb site. It’s a Tumblr blog that collects hilarious animated GIFs of animals being dicks called Animals Being Dicks. It’s basically the GIF equivalent to America’s Funniest Home Videos you.
It’s Friday. It’s been a very long and very cold week. So I think that it’s time that we do another amazing edition of the Best of the Interweb. You’ve probably figured out that I took to Reddit like a fish to water when moved over there from primarily using Google Reader. Surprisingly, my favourite subreddits aren’t Games or News or Politics but Aww and Boop.
So for today’s Best of the Interweb, it’s ten of the best GIFs from /r/boop.
It’s been about 10 months since we first featured this week’s Best of the Interweb site. It’s a Tumblr blog that collects hilarious animated GIFs of animals being dicks called Animals Being Dicks. If you think it’s funny to watch animals be jerks to humans and other animals, then this 21st century equivalent to America’s Funniest Home Videos is for you. Continue reading
If it’s not worth talking about, then it must be the Not News of the Week.
It’s not often that a Hollywood celebrity finds themselves in the Not News but not every celeb has a tale like Dick Van Dyke. A couple of weeks ago, he went on the Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson and told this story: “I went out once and fell asleep on (a surf) board. I did. And I woke up out of sight of land, and I looked around and I started paddling with the swells and I start seeing fins swimming around me, and I thought, ‘I’m dead.’ They turned out to be porpoises. They pushed me all the way to shore. I’m not kidding.” He’s 84 years old. Could that be the senility kicking in? Continue reading
A friendly reminder from your pals at The Lowdown: If it’s not worth talking about, then it’s definitely the Not News of the Week.
There is often a debate over who breast implants are really for but a recent incident should clear things up. A woman working at a dentist’s office was shot by a gunman with a semi-automatic rifle but came away no worse for wear. That’s because the bullet was stopped by her size-D silicone implant. The woman, who incidentally is a mother of three and grandmother of two, had her implants upsized from Bs to Ds a couple of years ago. Police believe that if she didn’t have the implants, she would have been killed. So when a woman says that she got the implants for herself, now you can’t dismiss it right away. Continue reading
Remember: If it’s not worth talking about, then it must be the Not News of the Week.
Dogs can be used as convenient excuse for everything from kids not doing homework to mail not being read to household items missing. However, one British man tried a new one. In England, everyone with a TV set must pay a licensing fee to support the BBC. One man tried to get out of paying his fee by saying that he doesn’t watch TV but his dog does. He claimed that his dog was lonely while he was at work so he leaves the TV on to keep the dog company. Other good excuses include the subtitles (closed captioning) being stuck on French and not being able to afford it because of taking care of a bird that flew into the house. Continue reading
A day late, a dollar short, but it’s still all the news that’s not fit for print. It’s the weird, the wacky, and the wonderful Not News of the Week. The theme of this week’s Not News is nature’s revenge.
Thirty-six years ago, a fisherman from Somerset was caught out by a fast moving incoming tide. He tried moving his car back from the edge of the water but his clutch started slipping so he abandoned ship and left his car to be buried at sea. Well, that story has one glaring inaccuracy. His car wasn’t buried at sea. Instead, the fisherman’s Vauxhall Victor 101 was buried under mud at that same beach it was lost at over three decades ago. The car and several parts have been discovered buried just below the surface of the sand thanks to rough weather that has shift a fair amount of sand. The fisherman hasn’t said if he plans on having the car retrieved but the last car that was salvaged from partial burial at the beach cost £3,000 to save. Continue reading
