Volkswagen Designed For Little People

Volkswagen Brazil has designed a little car for little people. The Volkswagen Mini-Gol is styled just like the Gol (VW’s smallest production vehicle), although it has been decreased in every dimension by around 30 percent. The idea is that the Mini-Gol will suit drivers who are shorter than 5-feet tall, and who find driving regular-sized vehicles difficult. All of the exterior and interior proportions remain the same to ensure the Mini-Gol remains as comfortable and functional as its big brother.” w/ photos

Slug Invasion

“As morning dawns on a Norwegian suburb, a detachment of killer-slugs, led by the notorious Sergeant Slug, prepare for a heads-on attack on a small garden – their objective? A juicy, delicious flower on the other end, deep within a flowerbed. A new conscript and his close friend, a medical officer, both suit and join in the massive charge into the garden. But as the slugs emerge into the exposed field, they stand head to head with a diligent, elderly lady, hell-bent on keeping her garden pristine and safe from pests.
As the two sides clash, it is as the saying goes: All’s fair in hunger and war!” — T.A.W

Worm In My Butt

“An Iraq war veteran wakes in the middle of the night with an uncontrollable urge to relieve himself, and he heads for the bathroom. The only thing more disgusting than the foot-long worm he pulls from inside him is how long doctors think it’s been living there!”

Star Wars Anakin Lightsaber Lamp

“Whatever you think about Anakin Skywalker there can be no doubt that he possessed one item that was cool beyond compare. No, not his rat-tail hairdo, we’re talking about his lightsaber. But how does the sophisticated Star Wars fan pay tribute to this awesome weapon without looking daft. Easy, just flick on the Awesome Lightsaber Lamp. Fashioned to resemble the lightsaber that successfully out-acted Hayden Christensen in the Star Wars prequels, this gorgeously crafted 26” table lamp boasts an eye-catching stem that is an exact replica of the gleaming hilt of Anakin’s trusty weapon of choice.” w/ photos

“As much as I’d love to unleash my inner music snob and burden you with my extensive list of obscure albums to look forward to in 2012, the fact that just about every music site on the planet has already released their own version of that list is standing in the way.
