If We're Going to Do Celebrity #DroughtShaming Let's Do It Right

In April, snitchy Californians lodged 22,000 water-wasting complaints that resulted in 838 penalties issued. And guess what? The state reduced overall water use by 13.5 percent. It’s evidence that these kinds of reporting efforts might be working. What’s not really working? Posting photos of celebrity homes on Twitter. »6/03/15 4:20pm6/03/15 4:20pm

If you’ve been on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, or Vine lately, then you’ve probably seen pictures or videos of strange, cartoony characters recently. Maybe they’re pole dancing.

The Fine Art of Photoshopping Justin Bieber's Head On Naked Dudes (NSFW)

Many horrors exist within Tumblr's dark, recondite recesses. But every once in a while, you'll stumble upon a phenomenon that is beautiful for its sheer and utter and absurdity.

Another Celebrity Is Leaving Twitter—Can You Blame Her?

It's a tale as old as time: Celebrity joins Twitter, celebrity gets viciously harassed on Twitter, celebrity becomes a shell of their former self because of Twitter, until finally—celebrity leaves Twitter.

Morgan Freeman Becomes E.T. and Other Age-Prediction Software Horrors

Yesterday, we got a look at a fun (if creepy) little bit of tech that claims to give us a peek at our grizzled, age-stricken faces in 20 years' time. What we got was certainly... something. So we decided to put the Future Self software to the real test, by inputting celebrities as they were 20 years ago and… »10/07/14 12:01pm10/07/14 12:01pm

Hearing Morgan Freeman talk on helium is pretty damn hilarious

Blessed with the calming voice of a warm blanket on a cold night, Morgan Freeman is basically the best narrator for nearly every documentary and most life situations. I could listen him talk about anything and it would feel important. But what about Morgan Freeman on helium? How's that sound? Hilarious. »5/23/14 12:54am5/23/14 12:54am

Hilarious photos make Oscar nominees pose with their younger selves

This is great. The geniuses at People Magazine stitched together pictures of celebrities posing with younger versions of themselves.

What famous celebrities would look like if they had tattoos

Tattoos don't have the same stigma as they once did but we're still a bit away from having body art painted on the sleeves of politicians or on the necks of princesses. I wish they were though. These photoshopped images of famous people covered in tattoos are so great that I wish it was real life. How hilarious would… »2/27/14 1:42am2/27/14 1:42am

Celebrities looked like they time traveled in these 1860's photographs

Whenever you look at vintage photographs taken using old methods, there's always a certain haunting quality about them. The life captured is so still, the eyes always seem so dark.

Replacing the Faces of Iconic Celebrities with Emoticons Is Stupid Fun

Emoticons are inherently silly. They're text based facial expressions that don't always make sense. Anytime a $ or # gets inserted to an emoticon, no one has any idea what the hell is going on anymore. But! When emoticons capture a feeling perfectly, they're beyond brilliant. A string of words can't even express life… »9/25/13 10:19pm9/25/13 10:19pm

Facebook's Special Treatment for Celebs
