Rats, proving their position as Nature’s Assholes, gnawed off the front legs of a 90-year-old tortoise that was hibernating. What kind of jerk gnaws off your legs when you’re freaking hibernating?

Jerry Lewis’ 1960 movie The Bellboy is widely regarded by cinemaphiles as the Citizen Kane of severely inept service-industry worker movies. And I think that includes the Fat Boys’ magnum opus, Disorderlies. What most people don’t realize is that it has one of the best fake VW engines in all of cinema. » 3/25/15 9:00am 3/25/15 9:00am

The Best Batman Ever Drove A Custom Atari-Equipped '71 T-Bird

I can't believe I never heard of this guy until very recently. I can't believe most of us haven't heard of this guy. Because Willie Perry may just be the closest thing we've ever had to an actual, no-joke super hero. Like Batman, he had no made-up powers; unlike Batman, he wasn't rich.
