As things heat up in Ukraine and the ever-precarious Middle East continues its pattern of unrest, we feel a tinge of concern for our Western economies hanging by a thread and our natural resources plundered at an unsustainable rate. In such a state of affairs it is only natural that we, as a global community, band together and take a look at some truly awful toys. It’s the right thing to do….

Wax Statue of Vladimir Putin Mysteriously Appears in Lobby at Madame Tussauds in LondonPosted: March 16, 2014 Filed under: Art & Culture, Humor | Tags: Fiction, Humor, London, Madame Tussaud, Madame Tussauds Hollywood, RUSSIA, satire, Statue, Vladimir Putin, Wax sculpture 2 Comments
Security guards at Madame Tussauds in London discovered a life-sized wax statue of Russian President Vladimir Putin in the lobby of the museum late Sunday night, with no identifying tags or documents associated with it. London police were called at 2:00 a.m. Sunday night, when the guards first discovered it.
“We don’t know where it came from. We didn’t commission it, or ask for it, and we don’t understand how it got in our lobby. We’re obviously very concerned.”
— Oliver MacGuffin, Tussauds spokesman
Curators and experts have been called in to examine the statue, in an effort to determine its origins, but have so far yielded no clues as to the source of the statue.
“It’s very lifelike. I was startled, when I saw it. I felt like it was looking at me…”
— A janitor at Tussauds
No immediate sign of a break-in were found, but a spokesman for Madame Tussauds cautioned that the investigation is still underway, and security measures are under review.
“…At first I assumed it was in the collection and was temporarily placed in the lobby, or had been moved for cleaning, but then realized, we don’t have a statue of Putin.”
–A Tussauds security guard
A Tussauds spokesman offered assurances that the museum will be open, as usual, but that the unidentified statue would not be on display to the public, citing security concerns.

One gun lover at reddit decided to 3D-print his own homage to Mother Jones: a homemade lower receiver for an AR-15-style rifle, complete with serial number. And just for kicks, he made sure the serial number matched the phone number for the main office at Mother Jones. The redditor even printed the Mother Jones logo on the receiver.

Who Tells the Best Jokes? Neurotic, Aggressive JerksPosted: February 16, 2014 Filed under: Art & Culture, Entertainment, Humor | Tags: Friedrich Nietzsche, Goodfellas, Hangover Part III, Humor, Joe Pesci, New York Post, Roberto Benigni Leave a comment
Kyle Smith writes: ‘Man alone suffers so excruciatingly in the world,” said Friedrich Nietzsche, “that he was compelled to invent laughter.”
This was a landmark moment in comedy, because exactly two seconds after Nietzsche said this, the atomic wedgie was invented by the boy standing behind him in the middle-school lunch line.
[Goodfellas is in the Martin Scorsese Collection at Amazon]
Today science is looking for better explanations of comedy than existential suffering, cognitive scientist Scott Weems says in his book “Ha! The Science of When We Laugh and Why”
Along the way, comedy researchers have stumbled upon surprising truths. For instance, lawyer jokes were almost nonexistent in the 1950s, whereas today more than 3,000 websites are dedicated to attorney mockery. Jokes about cleanliness (“Why do Italian men wear mustaches? To look like their mothers.”) don’t work in Europe, where nobody thinks it’s odd if you don’t shower very often.
