Fail whale Cake

The “Fail Whale” is a fairly iconic image that anyone who’s used twitter has probably seen at some point, unless you never use the web interface or have been really lucky. This cake was created by Mariana Pugliese a cake designer from Buenos Aires.

Interestingly the Fail Whale was designed by a Chinese illustrator Yiying Lu and was originally an elephant:

You can learn more about how this iconic image came about by watching the following interview with her:

The Pedobear Hoodie

I laughed my guts out when I saw this hoodie from Canada Cosplay, then I balked at the price… $175 Canadian! That’s mental! If you don’t know what Pedobear is then you can read about it on Wikipedia.

The shop also sells a Unicorn Hoodie:

And a Nyan Cat Scarf. I have to admit I kind of want the Nyan Cat scarf… It’s only $40 Canadian which is about £30 + P&P

Apparently Skyrim has Killed the Internet

past week or so for me…

Skyrim is stuff!

I’m noticing a trend of comics/images on the net implying that people are dropping everything to play Skyrim, it is a good game but I think people are taking it a little too far. Either that or the suspension on this band wagon is going to fail fairly soon as far too many people seem to be jumping on it…

Diary of a Dovahkiin.
Been playing a bit of Skyrim. Really don’t know why he doesn’t just leave right after that first incident. But, I guess that would make for a shorter game.
Enjoy. (?)

It’s tough to finish a comic strip properly when you are too busy venturing through the province of Skyrim slaying dragons!

It’s Dangerous to Go Alone.



I have to admit to finding this meme very endearing, I’m not even sure if I’ve actually played the legend of Zelda, I never owned it but I do remember playing one of the Zelda games on the NES at a friends house. My introduction to Zelda came on the Gameboy, but the line “IT’S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE TAKE THIS” must be ingrained the the soul of every gamer….

I’ve started seeing homages to it cropping up an awful lot of late, I’m not sure why there has been a sudden increase in the number of people posting them,  maybe it’s just doing the rounds.

Like this Transformers one by Timothy Lim  I found on Tumblr (Although I’d have had Ultra Magnus Giving it to Hotrod and not Optimus Prime):

Or this Star Wars themed one by Trek Matthews I also found on Tumblr (you can buy the T-Shirt at Redbubble):

Or this Matrix one I posted yesterday too:

I posted about this key holder yesterday, and will be doing my utmost to make one just like it as soon as possible…

And there is this pretty nifty one I found on Reddit (but have since lost the source link), it’s been doing the rounds and printed off by lots of people and stuck about.

If you Google for it’s dangerous to go alone of the first 20 or so results only one is the original image, the others are all images of people handing over cats or bananas or whatever, it’s really wierd, personally I like the ones above because they preserve the spirit of the original.
