Hey, remember when clowns were funny, endearing creatures that delighted young children with their crazy antics and playful innocence?
"I WILL EAT YOUR SOUL."
Believe it or not, I used to BE a clown. I'm talking face paint, balloon animals - the works. I realize that automatically makes me creepy and terrifying, but as a five-foot-tall, pigtail-wearing geek girl, I'm actually Ok with that.
"Oh, and could you grab the Cheerios off the top shelf? I can't reach."
You're probably wondering how children reacted to me as a clown, since everyone knows clowns only exist to obtain your internal organs in as bloody a method as possible - which they will then juggle in front of you, cackling, while an out-of-tune calliope churns slowly in the background and you're surrounded by fun house mirrors and porcelain dolls with empty eye sockets who somehow seem to be getting closer... and closer...
Sorry, where was I?
Oh, right. The kids.
To be honest, I spent my clowning days way more scared of children than they ever were of me. You see, children are very small. And fast. And when you present a pack of them with a single defenseless clown holding an excessively large bag of free candy, children can make the Hunger Games look like an episode of Mister Rogers.
Little Known Fact: clowns bleed squirty flowers.
And if you think a headless clown is unsettling, imagine a huge pile of nothing but clown heads.
Or better yet, just look at this:
(Ok, so maybe "better" wasn't the right word...)
Now imagine it slowly rotating, while a music box tinkles in the next room, and the door behind you creeeaks open to reveal a pale little girl with black, staring eyes, who suddenly shrieks...
"Happy Clown Week!"
Now, who wants cake?
Thanks to Anony M., Liz M., Dena R., Kristina K., & Carrie M., who dare you to look at this clown I found in a local arcade here in Orlando. That's right: THEY DARE YOU. Me, I'll just be whimpering over here in the corner...
Have a heart, bakers.
Don't do this:
And never promise the bride this:
When you're going to deliver this:
THESE ARE ZEBRA STRIPES.
These, on the other hand ...
Well, I'm pretty sure those are zebra sperm.
But then again, things tend to be pretty black and white with me.
And finally, bakers, just because you might question a couple's choice for their wedding cake order:
... that's no reason to punish them further!
("Hey, you with the shotgun. Put this cake out of its misery.")
Thanks to Anony M., Courtney T., Michelle T., & RT for the bang-up job hunting these down.
Simple necklaces often take the form of a chain with a simple focal pendant. However, these sleek designs can be marred by the tendency of the clasp to slide around from behind the neck to the side. This is my personal pet peeve, and in this design I experiment with a way of eliminating it – by turning the clasp into the focal element.

Earlier this week, a team of astronomers at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) discovered three new planets orbiting our neighboring star Gliese 667C (appx. 22 light-years from Earth) in the so-called habitable zone, once again raising hopes that they could have liquid water--one of the key ingredients for supporting life. With the latest additions to the recent string of discoveries, there are now at least twelve planets and 26 moons in our neighboring galaxies that could become our future homes, according to the Habitable Exoplanets Catalog.

Scientist and software engineer Burr Settles created this comprehensive chart outlining the semantic distinctions between a "geek" and a "nerd" based on the evidence of conversion data collected from Twitter. According to Settles' graph, those who are mainly interested in technologies, comics and cosplay are geeky, while academics, intellectuals and math enthusiasts fall on the more nerdy side of the spectrum.

For some awesome reason, donuts have stepped up their game recently. (See: Cronuts and the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe.) And remember when Psycho Donuts rolled out donut sushi? That stuff was cray. Well, it looks like they’ve got competition in Thailand that could give ‘em a run for their money. Thanks to a Twitpic hat tip, we now know Mister Donut’s SushiDo Delights exist.
First off, thank goodness there isn’t any raw fish on there, because it bears a pretty decent resemblance to the real deal. Luckily, the dessert is made entirely of sugary goodness that even sushi haters would enjoy. Check out SushiDo Delights in action below:
