I want to know what the bathrooms look like.

The Giger Bar:

This trippy place is in the HR Giger Museum in Gruyeres, Switzerland.

It's the perfect place to wear these shoes. More photos of the bar at Beautiful/Decay.

Your Grandpa Wears Thigh-Highs

Offbeat China has the story of a 72-year old grandfather of one of the founders of Yuekou, an online clothing store for teen girls, who began modeling clothes for the site after a tongue-in-cheek photo session.

The story notes that this is proof of increasing diversity in China. Honestly, I'm not sure how an elderly man modeling clothes for girls would go over in America! Kudos, China.

Hurricane Sandy recap

Hark! A Vagrant's Kate Beaton was visiting New York City right in time to get stranded in the dark for a couple days, and live-sketched it. Click here and magnify for her story.

I scream.


Ayuh, I mean... no.

Probably not.

Not in the store, at least. And spit out the gum.

Etsy user spellingmistakes (Darren Cullen) has created a baby doll that's pregnant with its own baby doll that's pregnant with its own baby doll. The fun never ends, but it does get really tiny.

Nice cameltoe, Ernie.

Lingerie company Yandy present the utterly ridiculous "Sexy Bert" and "Sexy Ernie" Halloween costumes.

Seems like a great way to snag a pedophile! Have fun ladies!

UPDATE: Hahahaha this is their Cookie Monster costume!

(the cookie is not included, btw)

UPDATE NUMERO DOS: Sesame Street issued a cease-and-desist letter to Yandy over their "Sexy Big Bird" costume.

Care for a Nippletini?

German liquor company G-Spirits (link is most likely NSFW unless you work at a topless bar) is marketing spirits which have been poured over the naked boobies of models before being bottled.

From G-Spirits' "Questions and answers" page:
3. You're not getting problems with the public health department, do you? [sic]

G-Spirits: Of course not. Obviously we conform to their requirements, not to offend against the food- or consumer protection law. We pay high attention to a hygienic filling process, furthermore medical personnel is present to check it.

                            (above: not an actual tiger)

On Friday September 21st a presumably deranged man jumped from the monorail at the Bronx Zoo into the tiger pen.  Hard-hitting investigative journalists at The Hairpin tried to get the tiger's side of the story.

Humans of New York, who took this photo, comments:
This man had a charming way of personifying his tigerpants. As in, "I saw him in a window, I fell in love with him, and I knew I had to get him."
