The title of this video doesn’t give the slightest inkling of what the viewer is in store for—and it’s also fairly hilarious. The title is: “This girl is going places. Not college, but places.”

The video is a collection of perhaps 20 Vine-ish gags involving a face made when a pair of googly eyes are placed on a woman’s body ... south of the border. The soundtrack includes the Star-Spangled Banner, Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love,” Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy,” and Tom Jones’ “What’s New, Pussycat?” 

A pair of googly eyes and suddenly you’re the Señor Wences of ass puppetry…

If anyone in your workplace would object to even mildly risqué material, you’d be completely crazy to play this there. You have been warned!

Nothing says anarchy like these hilarious stock photos of ‘punkers’

A group of happy punks
 
Oh dear, the stock photography version of punk. If you asked my nana what a punk was or looked like, she’d point to one of these photos and say “Right here. One of them.”

My favorite image out of all of this cringe-worthy mess is the “punk” dude holding the giant bazooka. As we all know a punk outfit is never complete without a handy rocket launcher. And don’t the ladies love ‘em???


The nut never falls very far from the tree.
 

Anarchy Angie, the waitress at “SPIT” the new punk rock theme restaurant, brings you your Molotov cocktail.
 

“This is about the JEANS, people. The JEANS. Not the bazooka, the jeans!”
 

Never mind the spreadsheet…

We normally don’t blog about animals here on DM, but when something this special like Eric the foul-mouthed bird comes along… it’s necessary. Eric lives in Australia and is owned by a woman named Sharon Curle. Eric has a vendetta against the family dog.

As you’ll see in the short video below, Eric doesn’t mince his words.

Can we please get Eric the foul-mouthed bird to debate Donald Trump?

These life-size decorative pillows are all handcrafted and made to order.

Dan Abramson


 
Dan Abramson is the purveyor of “Brogamats,” yoga mat carry cases for men, amusingly camouflaged with masculine signifiers like lumberjack plaid, hewn logs, quivers full of arrows, giant burritos… they’re pretty funny. He’s lately put a yogic twist on perhaps the ultimate masculine archetype, the warrior. After a Kickstarter campaign last year, Abramson has begun making Yoga Joes—“here to keep the inner peace”—send-ups of those classic little green molded plastic army guy toys, all in yoga poses. There are nine of them in a set, Headstand, Meditation Pose, Cobra Pose, Warrior One, Warrior Two, Child’s Pose, Tree Pose, Crow Pose, and Downward-facing Dog. Sets are $25 at the Yoga Joes web site, or $50 for the limited edition pink ones, and the site also features a gallery of marvelous tableaux of the toys that unavoidably recall the work of photographer David Levinthal, though with less sardonic intent.

Terrifyingly hilarious design flaw with the Minion 3-in-1 Body Wash for kids

There’s really not much to say except that millions of kids whose parents bought them the Minion 3-in-1 Body Wash just might experience this. I know nothing of the 3D computer-animated family-friendly film, but Universal Pictures,may want to consider doing a horror version.

Bring me the head of Bob Dylan: Creative and cool looking die cut records

Bob Dylan Baby Stop Crying die cut record
Bob Dylan “Baby Stop Crying” die cut 7” record
 
Artist Daniel Tolhurst has found yet another creative way to make art out of vinyl - by cutting 7” records in various shapes that best correlate with the musicians who made them or the song on the single. So as the title of this post implies, you can now own a Bob Dylan record that has been shaped to resemble his actual head (pictured above), or a Beastie Boys 7” that has been cut in the likeness of Mike D’s giant VW medallion (pictured below).
 
Beastie Boys Fight for Your Right die cut record
Beastie Boys “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!)” die cut 7” record
 
Tolhurst, who is based in the UK, started making his groovy and sometimes amusing record designs in 2013 from vintage singles, so each piece shows a bit of wear from its previous life as an actual record. And much like the DJ’s yore, he also takes requests for custom orders. Prices start at $79 and up based on the design you select. Loads of images from Tolhurst’s store, follow.

Anti-establishment artist Banksy has been taking a beating on the Interwebz this week after the launch of his latest installation, Dismaland.

Some of the most scathing (and hilarious) recent critiques of the artist have come from the Twitter account of writer Demi Adejuyigbe (@electrolemon). Previously responsible for what has been called “the best tweet of all time,” Adejuyigbe eviscerates Banksy’s M.O.

Banksy: Trite, predictable, obvious? This week the Internet seems to think so:

PLEASE DON’T pass the Dutchie: Behold the human centipede pipe!

Human Centipede pipe
Human Centipede glass pipe

I think it’s safe to assume that pulling this human centipede pipe out at your next pot party will guarantee that you will get to smoke your stash all by yourself.
 
Human Centipede pipe back view
 
While there are sadly no shortages of human centipede homages, this glass pipe appears to be a one-off so consider your hopes in owning one officially dashed according to its maker, Dustin Yunker

In all honestly, does anyone want to get stoned so badly that they would toke up by putting their lips on the “end” of this pipe (or the front because I’m not entirely sure how this bizarre pipe works)? The answer is of course someone would because, weed. Over the course of my life I’ve but a lot of stupid things in my mouth (and so have you), but this pipe isn’t getting added to the list of things I’m currently working through with my therapist. For now, anyway.

This Ramones vs Marvin Gaye mashup is pretty awesome

Marvin Gaye


 
I have extolled on DM before the virtues of remix/mashup genius Mark “Go Home Productions” Vidler. For over a decade, he’s been, to my reckoning, not just the most prolific mashup creator, but the absolute best at it. Vidler is possessed of an extraordinary gift for finding transcendence in what can too often be a very gimmicky, punchline-y form.

This month he’s released a new EP (free for download, as there’s really no way to sell stuff like this without a licensing nightmare) called “Sleazy Egyptian.” It’s a hodgepode that features collisions between the Bangles and the Stranglers, Basement Jaxx and the Beatles, and Daft Punk, Chic, and Mousse T. But the standout—and the track most likely of interest to DM readers—is this rather amazing union of Marvin Gaye’s “Ain’t That Peculiar” and the Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop.”
