  1. Okc_ebooks: Pick-up artists trying to chat up a robot horse

    Okc_ebooks creator Sam Kriss made a fake female profile on the dating site OkCupid, through which he responds to unsolicited messages from men with quotes from @horse_ebooks, the surreal Twitter bot that streams nonsensical snippets of text. The result: dozens of conversations from horny men desperately vying to have sex with a robot.


    That men on dating websites are desperate enough to forge conversations with aleatory internet patter is not in itself surprising. For women who receive an abundance of unsolicited messages from men, it is effortless to reject a would-be suitor. There is no need to give an “I have a boyfriend” or even a “no.” Thus, to some men, any response at all from a woman is encouragement enough to try to keep the conversation going, even if that response is “Almost immediately Together Turned immediately Immediately Immediately Immediately Immediately Immediately Immediately Immediately.”

    What’s surprising is how perfectly Okc_ebooks illustrates how pickup artists degrade communication. »

  2. Robin Hood in his twenties

    Fairy tales for twenty-somethings

    Are you tired of self-centered,  single-serving tumblrs for malaised urban twenty-somethings? Me neither! Sometimes it’s nice to wallow in your own numbness.

    Fairy Tales for Twenty-Somethings is a Tumblr started in mid-August. It’s a folkloric version of ‘Fuck I’m in My Twenties’, with each post a self-contained story. Every post has the same competing senses of generalized anxiety and germinating self-actualization that characterizes the work of Emma Koenig, Lena Dunham, or Noah Baumbach.

  3. Windows 95 tips - collecting blood

    Windows 95 Tips will possess and sustain you, computer user

    Windows 95 Tips is a collection of scary screenshots from an old operating system — but it’s also building the story of one second-person protagonist trapped in a decrepit OS for over a decade.

  4. The girl in this picture is mad you thought she was serious.

    Kim Stafford made this sign as a joke for a themed college party. But of course the photo was taken seriously by thousands, maybe millions of internet users, including Cheezburger’s The Daily What (who later added a correction).

    Read about the death threats she’s gotten, and how she’s dealing with it. »

  5. Fuck! I’m in the twenties.

    The relatable observational blog Fuck! I’m in My Twenties (buy the book) has a new parody called Fuck! I’m in the Twenties. It’s about the 1920s. Will it last for over a week, or is it just a pretty-good one-off gag? WHO KNOWS.

    Here’s their best joke so far:

    Feel that rhythm, I’m not bullshitting here, there’s a real rhythm to joke lists, and this lands it like a slightly-dated Olympic gymnast metaphor.

    Have a sad lunch, everybody

    62% of American office workers usually eat their lunch in the same spot they work all day. Is this true? I have no idea. But that’s what the creators of the Tumblr Sad Desk Lunch say, so I believe them.

    Sad Desk Lunch chronicles those wax paper-wrapped, Tupperware-contained moments of midday depression-mitigation collectively known as lunch.

    What makes these so depressing are those little bits of personality, desperately added to keep morale from flagging, to remind the lunch-packer that he or she is a person with preferences and needs and feelings and not just the occupant of a chair, facing a computer, so easily replaceable, so entirely unloved — a slice of lemon.

    It gets worse. »

  7. The 10 Funniest Reaction GIFs From Tumblr’s #Myfriendsaremarried

    From our friends at 

    Marriage is one of the most exciting times in life—if you’re the one getting married. But for single friends, it can be utter hell.

    The public displays of affection and talks of family planning are enough to lead to some awkward moments between the newly-married and those who are still flying solo.

    A new single-serving Tumblr (emphasis on the single) called #myfriendsaremarried has captured these situations through reaction GIF animations. In two months, the blog has collected more than 5,000 followers and 120 submissions.

    Here are the 10 that have resonated the most with single Tumblr users—or married ones who just want to rub it in—thus far:

    Horse Girls Have Blogs Now, And They Still Get Mocked

    Jenny was a horse girl. We were in first grade. She once chased me around on the playground with a stick she had been chewing on. I went to one of her birthday parties once and she had paper plates with pretty prints of horses, a cake with a horse made of frosting, and cups with ponies dancing in circles. She dreamed of horses. She told us all about how one day she would have the most beautiful black horse kept in a stable that she had already picked out about 15 minutes outside of the city. She sometimes came to school smelling a little like piss. And all of us, like the cruel children we were, made fun of her non-stop.

    Jenny was a horse girl, and if the internet had been around, she may have found solace online. Horse Girl Problems is a Tumblr that describes relatable moments for horse girls and sincerely answers questions posed by its feminine equestrian readership.

    And while most ‘___ problems’ blogs might be taken with a hint of irony, the audience at Horse Girl Problems sincerely relates to these text macros. The above was reblogged by user sparklyzombie with the response, “Cannot tell you how many times this happened to me…”

    So of course a parody has sprung up: Horse Girl Miracles. »

  10. Ugly Renaissance Babies: A Novelty Blog With Surprising Staying Power

    The blog Ugly Renaissance Babies is like the Hairpin’s “Stuff in Art” series had a baby. Obviously. Clearly. How would it not be exactly like that, you fool, you cretin, how did you not anticipate this?
