How Your Grandpa Got His LOLs

“It’s all about the toilets – thousands and thousands of tiny toilets. Ever since I first encountered Mardi and Stan Timm, the foremost collectors of novelties produced by H. Fishlove and Co., they’d tell me about gag boxes. But I just didn’t get it. I was more interested in other Fishlove innovations – chattering teeth, beer glasses with naked pinups inside, and, of course, fake rubber vomit. I couldn’t quite get my brain around why the Timms were so crazy about these old-fashioned gags, until they summed it up for me in two words: Bathroom humor.” w/ photos

Tribute Band Singer FAIL

“Dino, the singer of Aeromyth – the Aerosmith tribute band walked his way right off the stage during a show in Corona. No one was hurt and he joked about it afterwards. This is all is fun… Flashback of Sturgis when Mr. Tyler fell off the stage.” — BobDudaDrumstuff

Chimpanzees Have A Secret Handshake?

Chimpanzees pass down a ‘secret handshake’ through the generations, according to a new study. Researchers found that troops of chimps pass on traditions, including the handshake, from one generation to the next – and they differ from group to group. When chimps are cleaning, they adopt a ‘grooming handclasp’ – two chimps clasp onto each other’s arms, raise them in the air and groom each other with their free hand. Previous research suggest this handclasp may be a cultural phenomenon – like how people greet each other – but only some chimpanzee colonies practice this grooming behavior. Researchers looked at chimps on the Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage Trust in Zambia – finding some prefer to clasp hands, while others clutch onto another chimp’s wrist. Edwin van Leeuwen, of the Max Planck Institute, said: “We don’t know what mechanisms account for these differences.” w/ photos
