Queen is performing at the Oscars this year.  With Adult Goth/possible vampire Adam Lambert at its helm, Queen is set to dazzle us all during the awards show, which controversially tried to cut four categories from its broadcast in hopes of saving time. The Academy tweeted a teaser on Sunday, with a mash-up of “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “We Will Rock

By Morgan Sung2019-02-18 20:58:24 UTC Congrats, it’s a parasitic alien!  Gender reveal parties are exhaustingly overdone — from starting wildfires to nearly killing Grandpa, the heteronormative announcements can backfire beautifully. Twitter user @mskittenfish posted a video of a rare gender reveal done well.  But there’s a twist: The baby is neither a girl nor a boy. It’s a genderless otherworldly predator! Instead of revealing pink or blue filling, this party

By Morgan Sung2019-01-21 20:51:21 UTC Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ tweet honoring Martin Luther King Jr. is not going over well.  In a tweet, the White House press secretary wrote that King “gave his life” for the civil rights movement, and that “our country is better thanks to his inspiration and sacrifice.”  Here’s the thing: King didn’t give his life. He was assassinated four years after he was blackmailed by the FBI;

An 18-inch pizza has more pizza than two 12-inch pizzas, and people are losing it

By Morgan Sung2019-01-08 00:29:33 UTC Are you ready for a mindblowing revelation? If you’re splitting pizza with friends, you’ll technically get more bang for your buck by splitting one 18-inch pizza instead of ordering two 12-inch pizzas.  It sounds counterintuitive, but Fermat’s Library did the math: An 18-inch pizza has 254 square inches of “pizza,” while two 12-inch pizzas only have about 226 square inches.  People were understandably confused —

Amazon sends customer a picture of their package mid-air

By Marcus Gilmer2018-12-31 19:03:23 UTC As the holidays wrap up, so, too, do the constant deliveries. But not before one Reddit user got quite a surprise: Amazon’s picture-proof alert for his delivery captured his package in mid-air, flying toward his front door.  That’s quite a toss, to be honest, and even better photo-capturing skills. And for those skeptical that maybe the package is just wedged into the door for a

All hail the drag Hormone Monstress dancing to 'bubble bath'

By Morgan Sung2018-12-18 00:53:58 UTC Bubble baths are everything, and this drag queen gets it. Connie, the chaotic Hormone Monstress from Big Mouth who loves a good, hot bubble bath, is the mentor we all wish we had during puberty. Drag queen Miss Toto brought the animated walking disaster to life in an incredible performance in Miami.  In the viral video posted to Twitter, Miss Toto opens her number with

“Dump him.”Image: Bettmann Archive/getty images By Morgan Sung2018-12-17 22:09:41 UTC There are few places more supportive than a public bathroom full of drunk girls, and SheRateDogs is the digital version of that. If you’ve ever had the beautiful experience of being in a women’s restroom in a bar or club, you’ll understand how emotionally validating total strangers can be. Random women will bombard you with compliments on your makeup, helpfully

UPS played the Grinch card on Twitter and faced quite a backlash.Image: Getty Images By Marcus Gilmer2018-12-17 14:06:00 -0800 We’re not sure who slipped something nasty into UPS’s egg nog on Sunday, but the shipping company is facing backlash over a tongue-in-cheek tweet that went a bit too far into Grinch territory. The now-deleted tweet was posted Sunday afternoon and read like something Scrooge McDuck would dictate.  Image: mashable screenshot

Julia Roberts headline typo makes things real awkward for local paper

Kudos to the actress either way.Image: WireImage By Heather Dockray2018-12-10 22:46:56 UTC Spell check isn’t always your friend — more like a casual acquaintance. Just look at what happened to the Post-Journal‘s  stunning headline for an AP story they picked up this weekend about Julia Roberts.  It’s very possible the editor used spell check. Unfortunately for the paper, the function doesn’t always pick up on errors like this one: Clearly
