This photo comes with the following caption: “This is me riding a mechanical bull in Calgary. This is evidence that I play it safe. First, the bull is a fake. Second, the machine is barely moving. Third, if I fall off there is a soft padded flooring to land on. These are my safety nets.”

Some things. Firstly, you’re not really riding the bull as much as sitting on it. I’m surprised the Calgarians didn’t pelt you with cans for doing it wrong. You may think you were playing it safe, but you got lucky, lady. Did you ever think about what that bull might be coated with, let alone the floor? Your safety nets are more like garbage nets.

Sometimes when I’m washing my face before bed, I lean down to splash water on my face and then get scared that when I wipe my eyes there will be something horrible in the mirror. Now it’s going to be that.

Someone needs to alert Paraguay as to a possible attack from top-only terrorists with shivs. They don’t have lower halves and subsequently: nothing. to. lose*

 

*One could argue they could be worried about losing their top halves, but this seems unlikely. I never worry about losing my top**

Searched: Monster Girl Umbrella

I think you should consider waiting at the next stop up the street. Oh, you have a gun. All good.

This image is a parody or homage (I can’t tell which because image research isn’t one of my strengths) to the Japanese theatrical release poster for “My Neighbour Totoro” a Miyazaki anime film from ’88. This is the original:

The film asks of the viewer the ultimate existential question: “what would you do if an owl-thing waited for the bus with you?” Or else it’s the story of “two young daughters of a professor and their interactions with friendly wood spirits in postwar rural Japan.”

This cake is so meta, Greg. Eat the Cookie Monster eating cookies. Braaaaaaahm!

Unfortunately the cake designer didn’t think to decorate the cookies with pictures of cookies eating Cookie Monster.
