Apparently people haven't always celebrated Halloween the way that we do today, which is weird, because we sort of assumed "Sexy Referee Costume" was one of those timeless classics that had been around since the days of ancient Rome. It turns out people used to actually be kind of charming and thoughtful, instead of just smearing their bodies with glitter and pointedly refusing to drink anything less than 100 proof. Here's an example.
This could be the best thing that's happened to us today. We found a new Subreddit (courtesy of Daily Dot) dedicated solely to the moments in infomercials when people can't do simple things everybody else can do.
We still haven't recovered from Felix Baumgartner's amazing leap to Earth from the stratosphere. Fortunately, the internet is right there with us. Here are the best memes and GIFS we could find on the subject of Baumgartner's 128,000-foot free-fall. Ugh, just saying it makes us feel a little queasy, and watching a Felix Baumgartner jump GIF is almost too much. Maybe you'll fare better.
Ellen DeGeneres is always doing her part to brighten spirits. Fortunately this sometimes comes at the expense of a famous person's dignity. Here is a montage of a bunch of times Ellen had somebody sneak up behind a guest and scare them...
It's nice to know we're not the only ones -- Henry Thomas, star of 'E.T.,' admitted the movie's ending makes him weep like a little baby as well. Thomas was on the 'Today' show for an interview to promote the movie, which is being re-released on Blu-ray for its 30th anniversary.
Hinga dinga durgen, it really is Leif Erikson Day!! In 2009, President Obama made a proclamation, and now on the ninth of October we honor the European commonly regarded as the actual first to discover America. Here are some great memes and a reggae-themed educational video with a bunch of Vikings (whaaaa?) from around the web to honor Christopher Columbus's less-conqueror-y predecessor.
Somebody with a seriously warped sense of humor and some time on their hands went around the London subway system and stuck these signs up. Some of these are ridiculous. Some of them contain nuggets of truth. Some of them we wish did. All of them are hilarious. Then (it is 2012) the person took pictures of them, uploaded them to the internet and shared them on Reddit. These are our favorites.
Here's something for all you painfully nostalgic types out there. It's video footage of John Cusack awkwardly shuffling onstage with a boombox and handing it to Peter Gabriel before he performed "In Your Eyes" in concert over the weekend.
Liam Neeson is a man who loves danger, which would explain why he went on 'Sportscenter' despite having no knowledge of football. The best part is when he asks to start over (they're live), or maybe it's when he drops an s-bomb, or maybe it's when he admits he's only seen two football games in his life...
That's what was missing from yesterday's debate -- a keytar! Brilliant YouTuber Schmoyoho went through footage of the debate from last night between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama and made it into quite a catchy little song...
