Franklin ‘Fro: The Hair of Heros

"There are no coincidences in life everything happens for a reason"

“There are no coincidences in life everything happens for a reason”

In the last decade the sudden reemergence of the Ben Franklin ‘fro has seen a decline in teen pregnancies, gun crime, and the highest stock surge in our nation’s history. Whether it’s saving beer from drowning in the flood waters of Hurricane Katrina, Or young white girls from a house in suburbs of Cleveland, A little bit of Ben Franklin lives on. Although the famed Ben Franklin beer quote is a simplification of what he actually stated.

Fake Quote:

Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

Real Quote:

Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine, a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy.”

There is just something so wrong about seeing a church sign and finding a double meaning in it which surely isn’t intentional. So why do we keep doing it? Looking out for dirty church signs is one of the little pleasures which make life worthwhile, so who cares if we have to spend forever in the depths of hell because of it? Here are some of the best ones around but you might want to say a little prayer before you scroll through them all.

Demotivational Posters: Taking the Motivation Out of Posters

One of the most exciting internet trends of recent years has been the rise of demotivational posters.

To understand where these come from and why some of them are so darn funny we need to understand what a motivational poster is. These are, well yes, they are posters, you are right. And they are designed to motivate you. They might say stirring and patriotic things like “Your Country Needs You” or soft and fuzzy phrases like “You are Special”. They usually build your self esteem and are always sober, earnest and never sarcastic or with huge amounts of vomit or butt cleavage in them.

Demotivational posters, on the other hand, are designed to parody these motivational posters. They are often sarcastic, they reduce your self esteem and they often include horrific amounts of horrible body parts and weird stuff.

Ok, that’s enough of the theory let’s move onto the practical part of the lesson.

The Worst Superhero Powers You Could Get Lumbered With

I think I can safely say that most of us wanted to be a superhero at some point in our lives. In fact, some of us still do.

I can recall spending hours with my underpants over my trousers and my blanket tied around my neck as I saved the world as a particularly short and scrawny version of Superman. However, not all superheroes are endowed with useful superpowers like everyone’s favourite Kryptonian. In fact, some of them have been cursed with superpowers which I would rather avoid.

The power to eat any type of matter no matter how inedible it appears would be a wonderful ability to have when I visit my in-laws for Sunday lunch but I can’t think of many other uses for it. This rather limited superhero was originally called Tenzil Kem and he comes from a planet called Bismoll. He was included in the Legion of Superheroes but kind of faded out when the writers of the comics discovered that this lame superpower was rather boring and not all useful when it came to writing exciting stories about superheroes battling against evil villains.

Where Does Spaghetti Come From?

April Fool’s Day Jokes and Spaghetti Origin

1957 was such an innocent time, wasn’t it? Some hip young cat called Presley was young and fresh and might not even have eaten his first peanut butter coated hamburger yet, the lovably annoying Frisbee was invented and the Brits believed that pasta grew on trees. The respected TV show Panorama produced one of the earliest and finest April Fool’s pranks when they went to Switzerland and showed how spaghetti grows on trees. The public loved it and many people contacted the BBC to ask how they could grow their own spaghetti trees.
