Tom Hardy and his dog Woody at the London premier of Legend.
ONE OF A KIND: These people make beautiful things.
I ADMIT IT: I feel obligated to share these things any and every time they come along. Because language. Then there’s this. Editor’s Note: It will surprise no one that while I was lucky to have gone through an otherwise terrific public education system while growing up, I never had a single grammar class. Not one. Not one day. I don’t know why that wasn’t part of the elementary school (aka GRAMMAR SCHOOL) curriculum. Closest thing was French classes in high school, where I was beyond stupefied when Mademoiselle Line started conjugating “Être,” on the chalk board. I didn’t know what “conjugating” even meant. I’m still not sure. And again, none of you are surprised. And that’s okay. I also don’t know my times tables past 7 x 6. Suck on it Trebek.
AND WE HAVE COME TO THIS: Awesomesauce is now in the dictionary. As is manspreading, mkay, and fatberg, among others. Miss Michael, my 7th and 8th grade English teacher, were she still with us, would have so many things to say about this. Editor’s Note II: You take “manspreading” out of your fancy tome du words, I’ll learn 7 x 9. Ditch “meeple” and I’ll start working on gerunds.
THIS BIRD ROCKS HARDER THAN YOU:
THANKS FOR NOTICING: Look at that bubble butt. LOOK AT IT!
I HAVE NO WORDS: This.
ROTTEN EGGS: Some people just can’t seem to deal with competition. Said people are chickens.
FROM THE WHAT WOULD THAT BE LIKE DEPARTMENT: Dappered contributor Ben M brought this to my attention. I can’t even imagine what life would be like without one’s “mind’s eye.”
And word has it, Sam Smith will be singing the theme song.
TRAIL BUMMER: This is why we can’t have nice things.
DON’T BE LIKE THAT GUY: No really. Sucks to be this guy, and I use the term based totally on an assumption. I mean, that’s pretty lame and all but it just seems like something some dude would do. This, on the other hand, because why?
GAMES WITHOUT FRONTIERS: Sometimes it would be nice to know what kind of business we are getting up to. You know, just to make sure we’re keeping up with the Joneses.
THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD: People who don’t think fast on their feet, and those who do. Nice work.
BETTER LATE THAN NEVER: I thought I had already posted this, but I was wrong. Not the first time. Still though, this is pretty impressive. Not that I can afford one.
LIFEHACK OF THE WEEK: When hunkering down in your personal man cave isn’t enough, this. You just know this got my attention.
THE FUTURE IS NOW: Boy howdy we could use some of these in the Western states.
