Dogs are considered man’s best friend, and they often wear their emotions on their furry sleeves — or, rather, their furry faces.
Stand-up comedian, Demetri Martin, doesn’t just tell jokes — he uses one-liners and drawings on a “large pad”, as well as accompanying his jokes with music on guitar, harmonica, piano, keyboard, toy bells, ukulele, or tambourine, sometimes all at once.
He’s written for Late Night with Conan O’Brien, reported on The Daily Show, and even had his own show on Comedy Central (Important Things with Demetri Martin) and put out a couple of books (This is a Book and Point This at Your Face).
But it’s his doodles of seemingly normal things that crack you up while making you think that most people can relate to — or at least get a good laugh from.
Do you love food? I mean, really, really love food so much that you would permanently proclaim that love somewhere on your body, much like an expiration date on a container of yogurt?

While that sounds good in theory, it can take a slightly disturbing turn when the books either intentionally or unintentionally convey a message that might be “questionable.” Sometimes it’s the name, sometimes it’s the cover, and sometimes it’s just weirdly inexplicable creepy feeling.
Some of these writers may have had good intentions, but a lot of these books take a really strange approach to teaching children how to deal with adult-themed dilemmas.
Don’t believe me? Check out some of the most questionable kids books ever.
If a Peacock Finds a Pot Leaf
These prisoners in a medium-security prison in Santa Rita do Sapucai, Brazil are volunteers in an unusual new program. They generate electricity by pedaling stationary bikes that are connected to car batteries…
The power is used to keep the town square lit at night…
For every three 8-hour days a prisoner spends pedaling, he receives a day off his sentence. So basically it’s an even, hour-for-hour exchange — 24 hours of biking equals 24 hours of freedom. Seems like a pretty good deal.
CDZA, the group that brought us 50 years of nonsense lyrics and 98 years of whistling in pop music, has just released a version of Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” which they performed in 16 different genres from the history of western music. So whether you like Gregorian chant or Dubstep, at least a couple seconds of this song should be right up your alley…
