The only good and pure site on the internet, Clickhole, recently reminded us of every blogger's worst nightmare: A post published with placeholder text.

Movie Theater Plays Wrong Guardians Movie Three Times In a Row

Fans eager to see Guardians of the Galaxy got a disappointing surprise at a Regal Cinemas this week. The debut-seeking crowd watched in horror as the screen before them played the open scene not of the badass comic-based movie, but of 2012's Dreamworks kids flick, Rise of the Guardians.

But that won't keep idiots from trying it, apparently. A Wisconsin man took it a step further though, by trying to return his copier/printer … » 3/10/13 7:10pm 3/10/13 7:10pm

Thanks To HTML5 This Website Can Fill Your Whole Hard Drive with Cats
