Yahoo Launches Jack 'Loopy' Lew Signature Generator

Posted By on Fri, Jan 11, 2013 at 3:06 PM

Jacob Lew, President Barack Obama's White House chief of staff and new U.S. Treasury secretary nominee, was ridiculed earlier this week for his childlike signature comprised of nothing more than few looping pen strokes.

Quickly dubbed "Loopy Lew," numerous media outlets scoffed at Lew for his absurd signature that will soon grace newly printed American currency.

Now Yahoo! News has released the Jack Lew Signature Generator, a tool to turn any name into the man's nearly illegible scrawl. We've included a couple Lew-py examples below.

Forget Gangnam Style, It's Time for Klingon Style

Posted By on Sat, Sep 29, 2012 at 10:13 AM

For reasons not entirely clear to anyone, South Korean singer PSY's video Gangnam Style has become an international megahit, with incredible levels of radio airplay and media coverage despite the native tongue of the country.

And as with all things on YouTube, success spawns parody, generally around Star Wars or Star Trek themes.

So here it is, Klingon Style, a parody of the song, sung entirely in Klingon.

Now all we need is a Star Wars version. Oh look, there it is.

Filmmaker Makes Fake Pharmaceutical Ad for 'Legitimate Rape'

Posted By on Thu, Aug 30, 2012 at 11:19 AM

Missouri Republican Rep. Todd Akin aroused a mighty shitstorm with his statements about female anatomy having built-in defenses against pregnancy in cases of "legitimate rape," an assertion so incorrect that it is only taught at the University of Todd Akin's Butt—where his head clearly earned a master's degree.

One filmmaker responded by turning Akin's statement into a creepy pharmaceutical commercial for "Legitimate Rape," an answer to those suffering from "Sexually Liberated Uterine Tendencies," or SLUT.

It's creepy, violent and bizarrely comical.

Panda Cam Stars Move to Zoo Boise

Posted By on Tue, Apr 10, 2012 at 3:44 PM

In December 2010, Cobweb wrote about a "panda cam" set up by Mozilla, the software development company behind the Firefox Web browser. A 24-hour stream of three young red pandas was sent out to millions of users to raise awareness of the endangered species.

After broadcasting "250,000 hours of cuteness," Mozilla is closing down Firefox Live. The red pandas, now 8 months old, have reached adulthood.

Three red pandas were broadcast for 250,000 hours, total.
  • After the antics of three red pandas were broadcast for 250,000 hours, Mozilla is closing down the Firefox Live stream of cuteness.

Two of the amber-colored critters, Dolly and Winston, will now head to Zoo Boise, according to a Mozilla announcement in March.

Zoo Boise officials will continue to implement a species survival plan, part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' efforts to save red pandas. Dolly and Winston will add extra genetic diversity to the red panda population already on hand at the zoo.

Their sister, Bernadette, goes on to Virginia Zoo in Norfolk, Va., for an arranged marriage with a young male panda named Oscar.

Obama, Our Heartthrob in Chief, Sings Al Green

Posted By on Fri, Jan 20, 2012 at 11:18 AM

There have been approximately seven bazillion Republican presidential debates so far. And the candidates seem to view them as an opportunity to strip off whatever shreds of likability they have.

Meanwhile, on the other team, President Obama is singing Al Green in front of a Patton-sized American flag.

Good luck topping that, Romney.
