Old Spice commercial guys to do battle via Internet popularity contest.Old Spice commercial guys to do battle via Internet popularity contest.

Dear Old Spice, there is no need for a contest here. Isaiah Mustafa should be your permanent spokesman. If you want more information other than the previous two sentences know that Mustafa's opponent happens to be none other than Fabio. You can watch some of the back and forth videos between Mustafa and Fabio over on Mashable. It's all in the delivery. Night vision top hat!

A gallery of the world's worst playgrounds through the playful eye of Photoshop.A gallery of the world's worst playgrounds through the playful eye of Photoshop.

As a kid did anyone ever actually play a game of Tic Tac Toe on one of these things? Who thought this was a good idea? Oh, and be careful going down that twisty slide, you may get wet.

Marvel and Disney character mashups through the mutated eye of Photoshop.Marvel and Disney character mashups through the mutated eye of Photoshop.

Mike Wazowski is Bruce Banner as The Incredible Myopic Hulk - and there's your plot for The Incredible Hulk 2 (or 3?) and/or Monsters Inc 2.  The scary part is that legally, this can actually be made (Disney owns Marvel) and someone in Hollywood probably thinks its a good idea.

Remember that episode of The Simpsons where Lisa inadvertently grew a tiny city as a science project? This is kind of like that. Yes, it seems that I can relate any post to some kind of Simpsons episode. Now bring me some shoes.

Observation of the morning: adding a random zipper to a photograph can either make it cool or just really creepy in a matter of seconds. Use at your own discretion.
