These 30 Questionable Toys Are Just Hilariously Wrong

Aug 31, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

From tech things to board games to classics, the number of options for toys that kids have these days is pretty much endless.

That’s why the fact that these “questionable” toys have actually hit the shelves make you wonder just what the heck people were thinking — or if they were thinking at all.

I don’t like what Wolverine is suggesting.

But there are some babies who just get all the luck — they get to look exactly like miniature versions of celebrities!

Back to school — the time most kids dread and all parents have circled on their calendar for the whole Summer.

And what comes with going back to school? Back to school shopping, of course.

These 25 Pictures Put the ‘Real’ In Really Bad Real Estate Photos

Aug 14, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

When Andy Donaldson was looking for a house in 2013, he couldn’t believe how awful some of the property pictures were, so much so that he decided to start a Tumblr account and collect pictures from around the world.

“I was constantly appalled by the quality of some of the images,” he said. “I stuck some on Facebook along with some snarky comments and it went down well with friends, so I started a blog.”

The site went viral that September and has had million visits to date, with the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, and Australia providing most of the visitors.

Donaldson, a senior digital manager, insisted all the photos are genuine and from real property sites, from South Africa to Kazakhstan. He added that among his biggest fans are estate agents themselves.

“Reaction from estate agents has been universally positive,” he said, “and many of them have featured the blog on their own sites as an illustration of how not to do it.”

And if they needed more proof, here you go…

Potential buyers are asked not to question what goes on with the dolls when no one is looking…or even when they are.

These 30 Fortunes Are Better Than the Actual Fortune Cookies

Aug 13, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

It’s debatable if fortune cookies are actually cookies, because let’s be honest…They taste pretty similar to the pieces of paper that are deftly slipped inside them.

And what’s on those slips of paper? Extremely random “fortunes” that are nothing if not entertaining — especially if you find one like these.

It was apparently a little claustrophobic.

25 Vintage Recipes That Will Take Away Your Appetite

Aug 12, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

We’re spoiled today in that we have the Internet and Food Network and availability to fresh ingredients in which we can make meals that are actually relatively appetizing, in most cases.

And a lot of us grew up with grandparents telling us how they could feed a family of 23 on a package of beef, gelatin, and a pound of potatoes, and they often tried to force you to eat some of their “favorite classic recipes.”

Those recipes usually included words like “mold,” “loaf,” “salad,” “casserole,” and Jell-O, along with a lot of mayonnaise and even more NOPE.

Call me spoiled, but these horrifying meals should be left in the past.

Ham and Banana Hollandaise

Three words that should never, ever go together.
