The holidays might be winding down, but that doesn't mean we can put our feet up and slip into a post-festivities food coma just yet. T-minus three days until New Year's Eve, and you know what that means-- it's time to get your party on!
We've said it several times before, and we'll say it again-- news reporters are awesome and super talented, in a variety of ways. So far the rapping weatherman tops our list as one of the coolest reporters around, but we recently discovered a dude who's giving him a run for his money. We'd like to introduce you to the most coordinated dancing traffic anchor around, Bob Herzog.
Happy December 21st, ladies and gents! It's a fine, fine day due to three very important factors-- the world hasn't ended yet and it's Friday. Jackpot! What makes today even greater though is that it's the Winter Solstice, AKA the time when days finally start getting longer. It's exciting, trust us.
One of the reasons we love the holidays so much is that there are tons of ways we can celebrate. Ugly Christmas sweater parties probably rank at the top of our favorites, just because wearing the ugliest cardigan ever in the name of holiday spirit is strangely fun. So what ranks towards the bottom of our favorites list? Office parties.
On Christmas morning, there's nothing worse than getting a bad reaction to one of your presents. This is especially prevalent among the younger crowd, particularly those under age 12. Why? Well, the kiddos don't necessarily have an understanding of faking appreciation and re-gifting later, so it just comes off as bratty behavior.
With the Christmas countdown officially at 11 days, we can hardly contain our excitement for presents and Santa and grandma's awesome cookies. All this holiday hype has got us thinking, though: Do you honestly know the true story of Christmas?
If you're in the market to commit a felony, you've got to get creative these days. With tons of weird crimes already on the books like the NHL dude who was arrested while wearing a Teletubby costume or the guy who was caught cooking pot pie in his tightie whities, it's hard to be original. We've recently come across a law-breaking situation that's pretty refreshingly unique, though. Keywords: naked guy, terrified Chihuahua and laundry.
Take any food, deep fry it or add some bacon, and you've got us hooked. There's really nothing better than a nasty, greasy mess or extra meat strips to really make our testosterone sing. Think about it-- would you eat raw turkey testicles? Probably not. What about fried turkey testicles? Solid maybe. There are rare moments, however, when these two perfect cooking tactics combine to make an insane creation. This is one of those moments.
According to those trusty old Mayans, we only have 10 days until the end of the world. December 21st is the supposed day of doom, but we don't know why everyone's freaking out so much; this could finally be the arrival of zombie babes. Plus, we're all going down anyway, so we might as well celebrate. That's where La Fin Du Monde ("The End of the World") beer comes in.
Etsy is basically a place where all the crafty people of the world go to sell their awesome stuff. Particularly when the holiday season rolls around, Etsy is one of our go-to spots to snag one-of-a-kind presents. (But you can also get some rad Christmas decor for yourself there, too!)
