“When you see it, you’ll shit bricks.” Classic internet catchphrase. You’d think there would be more puns based on it. I couldn’t find any, so I made the following.

The Occupy Wall Street movement has become a global phenomenon, with sympathetic protests cropping up around the world, grassroots support and growing mainstream media attention. Still, if it’s going to keep growing, the movement needs to incorporate one more crucial element. They need corporate sponsors.
There’s a lot to be gained for the sponsor. They get zeitgeisty buzz, they appeal to a “hip” young market, and they might just get the ironic attention of the wealthy 1%. Here are some companies that would be a natural fit for the Occupy Wall Street movement.
I knew I needed to make a parody of the powerful but super-serious blog We Are the 99 Percent. My first thought was some kind of “100%” movement that only described itself in universal turns. Instead I chose milk (above).
There are, of course, many other jokes to make here.
You are now aware of your right hand on the mouse.
Unless you’re on a laptop, in which case you are now aware of the little bumps on the J and F keys.
You are now aware of your finger on the scroll wheel, your feet on the floor or how your monitor could stand to be just a bit dimmer or brighter.
You are now aware how much time you’ve spent jerking off in that chair. Unless it’s your work chair, in which you’re now aware your predecessor probably jerked off.
Reusable canteens are taking over some of the market share traditionally dominated by bottled water. Bottled water sellers are fighting back with new environmentally friendly brands.
Each drop of Aquacholy water comes from the tear of an endangered animal. The animals are not bred in captivity, but approached in the wild and informed of their own global plight. Upon coming to terms with the impending fate of their species and their own mortality, the animals weep gently. Aquacholy sadness technicians tenderly comfort the animals while harvesting their tears with patented “hydration preservation ducts.” Saline content is filtered out through a hemp sieve for organic purification.
Slogan: This is what it tastes like when doves cry!
A meme costume is already better than your average costume, because when people recognize it you feel like you’re in a special club. And these costumes from the third annual NYC Hallowmeme party (sponsored by Slacktory, BuzzFeed, Forced Meme Productions and Epic Win for Anonymous) were especially impressive.

80s nostalgia! It’s a big deal right now, for some reason. It’s either a sign of the End Times or a sign that our culture is dominated by tweens who will wear Super Mario T-shirts for completely random reasons, despite having been too youngto play Super Mario Bros. when it originally came out.
Or maybe there’s something else behind all of this. Did it ever occur to you that a sense of 80s nostalgia might be hardwired into our brains? Or hardwired into our brains-slash-bodies? …That would be one explanation, right? For the recent barrage of 80s crap that has assaulted our world? After all, what is the deal with the Transformers and Smurfs revivals — and, to a far, far lesser extent, what’s with the ThunderCats and G.I. Joe revivals?
Gifs! Because who has time to push play on time-consuming videos nowadays?? I got shit to do, Internet! Like look at more funny cat pictures or change my little brother’s facebook status to Nickelback lyrics. So without further ado, I bring you 15 of Sofapizza‘s favorite gifs, in no particular order:
Facebook is a useful little tool. We can be ourselves, but that good, sexy, photogenic version that only kind of exists. We can be who we want. We can peek through the cracks of everyone else’s sexy, photogenic version.
And like any collection of more than 800 million people, spanning from drunk frat boys, to awkward teenage girls, to your grandmother — there is a general code of conduct. One that has not yet been codified. I present, for your enjoyment and your sanity, the unofficial rules of Facebook.
The iPhone’s Siri virtual assistant can talk to users in several languages. But even its UK version can’t always hear Scottish accents, and loads of Asians can’t master her brand of English.
