Stegosaurus Tortoise Cosies

Remember that “guineapigosaurus” costume I posted a couple of years ago? No? Go check it out… Anyway I’m sure a lot of people with tortoises/turtles were really jealous that they couldn’t make their reptilian friends look just as adorable.

Well they need not be jealous any more! Etsy seller MossyTortoise sells patterns for you to knit stegosaurus tortoise cosies!

She also does shark and flower ones, but they aren’t as cool as stegosauruses!

Game Review: Cards Against Humanity

cards-against-humanity

I don’t think I’ve laughed as much as I did while playing “Cards Against Humanity” in a very long time, I laughed so hard I gave myself the hiccups.

Cards Against Humanity is a fairly simple game, each player is dealt a hand of 10 “White” cards with a random phrases on them like (The expansions give you blank cards to fill in with your own in jokes):

  • “Being a Dinosaur”
  • “Goblins”
  • “Stephen Hawking talking dirty”

Players then take turns drawing a “Black” card which has a phrase with one or more blanks in it such as:

  • But before I kill you Mr. Bond I must show you ___________________
  • In M. Night Shyamalaman’s new movie, Bruce Willis discovers that _______________ had really been ______________ all along.
  • Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s_________________

The other players have to play in one or more white cards which are shuffled and then read out. There is a mild element of strategy to this, because the player who played the black card picks the winner, you have to pick not the funniest card but the one that you think will appeal the most to that player’s sense of humour.

Whoever’s card is picked wins that round, everyone draws a replacement card and the next player draws a black card for everyone else to play.

That’s it… There are house rules, some of which are genius, but that is pretty much the game in it’s entirety. It’s a really good way to get to know people and some of the bizarre/sick combinations that people come up with are hilarious.

I liked this game so much that having played it I ordered it off Amazon the next day, I can’t wait to play it again…

  

Curse Your Sudden But Inevitable Betrayal! – Origami Edition

I was looking at photos I’d taken on my phone and realized that this photo kind of fits the Firefly “Cure Your Sudden But Inevitable Betrayal!” meme.

If you are wondering what the hell I’m talking about watch this, it’s relatively spoiler free:

I can’t remember where I get the instructions for these two dinosaurs but I think it was origami resource center’s dinosaur page the stegosaurus is Baby Stegosaurus (FG Gomez) and the raptor looks a lot like Procompsognathus by Stephen O’Hanlon.

Go forth and and fold!
