Reddit: How Do You Subtly Fuck With People?

This is awful. I love it.

* Every now and again I use “rn” instead of “m.”

* I asked a guy at work if he’d ever got “that creepy deja vu feeling”. A week later, I did it again.

* I’ve been slowly increasing the mouse sensitivity on both of my roommates computers. In 2 weeks I’m going to put them back to the default and pretend like mine is slow too. I’m interested to see the conclusion that they will come to.

The Stock Photobomber


As an art director in advertising, I’ve spent many a day sifting through stock photography. If I had to guess, in my 20-year career I probably viewed some 845,742,923,012 images… but that may just be how it felt. I find that when I look at stock photos, I experience the same uncomfortable feeling I have when my bank teller asks me with a forced smile, how my morning is going or when I eat “Chick’n” or see an interview with Tom Cruise. It’s not simply that my teller’s greeting, the vegan meat substitute and the celebrity scientologist are fake, it’s how hard they pretend that they’re not – that’s what really gets under my skin. Maybe it’s just me, but I’d rather have my bank teller say to me, “Fuck you asshole, give me your deposit.” That’d be kind of harsh and he’d probably get fired, but you know what, at least it’d be real. And being real means everything to me. Which brings me to this book. It isn’t enough for me to live my life as an authentic person who eats real chicken and meat products, I feel compelled to make an example of the things in this world that don’t follow the same path. Not the eating real chicken and meat products part, but the other thing about being authentic. Guess who’s first on my list…. the world of stock photography. In case you’re wondering, television news anchors are second and I will get to them in good time. Armed with Photoshop 6.0 and my own raw emotion, I’m going to thrust stock photography into the real world the only way I know how… I’m going to photobomb the shit out of it.

This Sums it Up Quite Succinctly

US Deports Lou Dobbs

From a legitimate news source:

WANTAGE, NJ—Acting on anonymous tips from within the Hispanic-American community, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials on Wednesday deported Luis Miguel Salvador Aguila Dominguez, who for the last 48 years had been living illegally in the United States under the name Lou Dobbs.

According to the Department of Homeland Security, federal agents stormed the undocumented immigrant’s home in an evening raid just hours after the 64-year-old newscaster suddenly announced that he was resigning from CNN, and immediately placed him on an Aeromexico flight departing from Newark Liberty Airport.

“Mr. Dominguez did not come quietly, but in the end he came,” said Sam Whitlock of the U.S. Border Patrol, who was injured during the arrest. “He pulled a knife on me, like they will, and swore a bunch in Spanish and spit on us when we finally managed to grab him by the serape and throw him against a wall. But the important thing is that he’s now back where he belongs.”

11 Ingenious Signs On The Simpsons

From 11 Points:

This is not a comprehensive list of the best signs ever seen on “The Simpsons”.

Because I don’t think that it would be possible to put together the 11 greatest signs on “The Simpsons”. Every single episode features at least three or four signs and, without fail, they’re clever. Business names, business slogans, messages on the church sign… for 20 years now, the writers have almost never missed.

So what I set out to do was put together a list of 11 signs featured on “The Simpsons” that I find to be exceptionally brilliant. And I know I left out some great ones. I had to. So with apologizes to Stoner’s Pot Palace, Flowers By Irene, no outside Eucharist and so many more, here are 11 ingenious signs on “The Simpsons”…

Afterbirthers Demand To See Obama’s Placenta

From a legitimate news source:

WASHINGTON–In the continuing controversy surrounding the president’s U.S. citizenship, a new fringe group informally known as “Afterbirthers” demanded Monday the authentication of Barack Obama’s placenta from his time inside his mother’s womb. “All we are asking is that the president produce a sample of his fetal membranes and vessels—preferably along with a photo of the crowning and delivery—and this will all be over,” said former presidential candidate and Afterbirthers spokesman Alan Keyes, later adding that his organization would be willing to settle for a half-liter of maternal cord plasma. “To this day, the American people have not seen a cervical mucus plug, let alone one that has been signed and notarized by a state-certified Hawaiian health official.
