Female Urinals: what gives?

In my unnamed office building, 30 out of the 120 bathrooms contain something called “female urinals.” They look like this. I have no idea how to use them. Luckily a high-level governmental official has been made aware of the problem.

I got this image from a site called urinal.net.

The coolest My Little Ponies you will ever see

Speaking of My Little Ponies…

I think my sister Margaret showed me Mari Kasurinen‘s Star Wars-themed My Little Ponies a few months ago, and I really should have posted about them back then. In case it’s not immediately obvious to you, these are the greatest things in the universe. Not just because they’re really cool conceptually, but because they’re spot on. Take, for example, My Little Edward Scissorhands:

That pony has the exact same emotion as Johnny Depp does. Yeah yeah, I know. It’s a My Little Pony that’s dressed up like Edward Scissorhands. Ha ha. But it’s crazy awesome.

Also, the Joker. I know it’s a My Little Pony, but it’s just about as creepy as Heath Ledger was.

Not all of them are dark and creepy. Some are really super funny and sweet:

Heman (Dan’s favorite)

Anyway, these are fantastic. Check out others (Boba Fett, Han Solo, Cewie, The Bride from Kill Bill, Alien, Predator, etc) on Mari’s website.

I want to be burried in the middle of this circle

It looks so peaceful.

This reminds me of when I was a little girl and I used to arrange all my My Little Ponies in a circle around me. And if I was feeling particularly amitious, I’d use my troll dolls, too.

Anyway, this artist (Brooke Inman) uses colored pencils, photographs, markers and other shit to do this. I can just imagine Emily watching me do something like this and saying “You’re stressing me out!”

Your vote required – which bathing suit is more likely to appear in your nightmares?

So my sister and I had a race tonight to find the world’s ugliest bathing suit. Here are the three that I think are the absolute worst. Please vote on which one you believe to be most unflattering.

Option A

From Victoria’s Secret for $164 (I shit you not)

Option B

Also from Vicky’s, but amazinly on sale for $34 (they’re practically giving them away…gee, I guess NOBODY WANTED TO BUY IT)

Option C

From Delias for $29.50

google chrome experiments

i don’t entirely understand what google chrome is. im sure someone will explain or i could ask wikipedia and find on in a sec but im jetlagged and exhausted from my trip to iceland (ill post more about this later). SO… google chrome has put up these cool experiments. i suggest the…

video puzzle

browser talk

and ball pool

mostly because these were all featured today but I tried them all and they were fun. browser talk requires a microphone though and ball pool almost made my computer explode (after a few tries it sounded like it was about to take off) but they are all super fun. browsermation looked fun too but i couldnt get it to work. check out all of the chrome experiments here.

ps. thanks steve for showing this to me and thanks to jr for making fun of me for not knowing what google chrome is

Grain Edit’s interview with Frank Chimero

I’m a big fan of Frank Chimero. His state illustrations are fantastic (when’s New York, Frank? Or Vermont, or Indiana??), and I used to have this inspirational poster as my desktop at work for a while (the “Aw, Damnit” part got to me, eventually). Anyway, Grain Edit interviewed Frank recently, and it’s really fascinating. I’m not even a graphic designer or much of an artist (though I’m known to doodle geometric shapes on notebooks at work).

The whole interview is a great read, but my favorite part is when Frank describes how he comes up with the ideas for the states. Here’s an excerpt:

Here, I’m trying out a few ideas. Something long and curling? An alligator? A fish? A manatee? Nah. That manatee doesn’t look like one. It’s too skinny. Not cowish enough. Doesn’t work well with the shape. The alligator is nice, but too predictable? His legs don’t integrate in very nicely into the shape. A train? Oh. Wow. That’s nice. Maybe we can use the smoke to trail off to the left to fill that difficult space. Ok. Bingo!

So cool. Anyway, Frank also mentions this great video he did for Good Magazine. I hadn’t seen it before and I suggest you watch it both for his great drawings and for the info.

Happy Birthday CrapWeLike!

Today is CWL’s 1 year anniversary!  In celebration,  here are our top three posts most trafficked posts of all time (sorry, definitely not our BEST posts..)

#3:  NSFW, unless you’re on someone else’s work computer

aka – the post about the Verizon guy looking up kind of dirty vids on my work computer including Man With World’s Biggest Penis and this:

#2:  Suri Cruise is so cute my eyes can’t compute

#1 – For Liz

Honorable mention goes to this dog is better than michael phelps.

Top search engine referral terms for the year: ed westwick, bulldog puppies, michael phelps, suri cruise, the hills, nom nom nom

in conclusion: Gossip Girl, Suri Cruise and penis vids are the way to go.  Here’s to another year of CWL and maybe actually moving over to crapwelike.com.. somedayy, I promise.

I want this Toilet

We’ve all had awkward moments in an “away bathroom” situation (as Liz Lemon would say), but that’s why everyone should have a toilet with the capacity to flush 3.5 LBS OF DOGFOOD. Gracefully.
