12 Hilariously Weird Anti-Drug PSAs

These days you can throw a rock and hit a “I tried ____” drug essay. But there was a time when the anti-drug PSA was all the rage—and one occasionally presents itself, like this ad about molly (that actually wasn’t as ridiculous as it could have been). As most people know, the drug PSA is usually hilariously awful, totally ineffective, and downright weird. Thanks to the magic of the Internet, those laughable “just say no” ads are still with us today. And we’ve gathered a collection of oddball PSAs for your viewing pleasure. … Read More

One Directioners Are Terrorizing ‘The Daily Show’ Over Terrorism Joke: Links You Need To See

Let’s give it up for Jon Stewart and the team over at The Daily Show for going viral twice in the same day. Well, the Redskins bit was maybe more vile than viral, but this one — this one is definitely viral, thanks to the innumerable tweens who will overreact to anything remotely negative about One Direction, even if it’s just a throwaway line at the end of a three-minute segment that suggests “a member” of One Direction is joining a new terrorist supergroup. … Read More

Taylor Swift Knows You, The Internet, Exist: Links You Need To See

Taylor Swift has destroyed the Internet today, thanks to a photo of her wearing a shirt that says “no its becky” across its chest. This photo wouldn’t be a bigger deal than any other candid of T-Swift, but this time she was fully acknowledging a Swiftian meme that had already been making waves on Tumblr. This is like that time Chuck Norris read Chuck Norris Facts, only with somebody way more famous and with fans who aren’t your dad or your friends from IRC. It’s a strange thing when celebrity collides with or acknowledges its own fandom, like a TV becoming sentient and looking in on itself, acknowledging all of the parts that make up its whole. … Read More

50 Cultural Icons on What They Were Like as Teenagers

It’s hard out there for a teenager. It’s even kind of hard out there for those of us who used to be teenagers — especially in these back-to-school months, when the nostalgia comes creeping up like those floods we used to wear and never, ever should again. But you know who was probably even stranger than you in high school? Your favorite cultural icon. Or maybe not — as is only to be expected, some had joyful (and/or prank-filled) teenage years, some suffered tragedies, some were completely weird, some were popular, and some deserve our respect for even getting through.

Rudy Giuliani Defends ‘Call of Duty': Links You Need To See

Today’s been a strange day for news. Rudy Giuliani is serving as co-counsel on a suit filed by Manuel Noriega – former dictator of Panama (who’s currently in prison for, you know, murder). His suit asserts that his depiction in Call of Duty: Black Ops is a “blatant misuse” of his image, and, according to PC Gamer, he’s offended by his portrayal “as an antagonist and… as the culprit of numerous fictional heinous crimes.” I definitely recommend watching the video (viewable at PC Gamer) in which Giuliani haughtily defends the “good American company” that made Call of Duty. … Read More
