"No colleagues knew my mission, and some of them froze there in seeing me approach. Some were even screaming for being scared."


That's what 25-year-old Wang Kang tells London's The Daily Mail of the reaction from his co-workers when he walked into the office in a full replica of the MK I suit from 2008's Marvel Comic blockbuster "Iron Man."


And you thought you were cool wearing flip flops for casual Friday.


Wang, a Shanghai, China, telecom company employee, spent about three months and $450 constructing the MK I suit, which weighs in at 110 lbs. His next project? To perfect the craft and get the foam and rubber build down in weight so he can work on a MK II suit replica of course.


Aside from fighting supervillians in his mind while trying to type in the beast of a suit, there apparently is a benefit most people might not immediately assume - the chicks dig it.


"They said I am a happy and creative man, and they wanted to know me," he said of the apparently hard-to-please dating pool in Shanghai.


Good luck with that, Wang.



Politics makes for strange bedfellows, sure. But the Illinois Senate Republican Leader quoting Wu-Tang Clan lyrical genius Raekwon? Genius on many levels.

This might be the most awesome Wu mashup since Chessbocin' met LEGOs.

And it's subtle, but when Christine Radogno drops the mic after dropping C.R.E.A.M. beats - Dolla Dolla Bill, y'all - it's the best throwdown moment since Eminem stopped throwing up long enough in "8 Mile" to win his battle. Who says fiscal conservatism has to be, well, conservative?

If this doesn't bring us together, what will?

Thanks to CapitolFax for digging this up.


Little Girl Plays With Dead Squirrel - Watch more Funny Videos

This is clearly a video shot with the hope of embarrassing a girl in her teenage years. Oh, mom and dad, something says you'll take care of that all by yourself.

Witness a cute little girl playing with her cuddly new furry friend - Mr. Corpsey.

Yes, that's a real squirrel. Yes, he's, to quote Monty Python, an ex-squirrel.

See how dad, or whatever passes for a male authority figure there, misses out on the instinct to slap the dead rodent out of said girl's hands and rush her off for a bleach bath. No, what's needed here in the parenting guidebook, clearly, is YouTube video.

And Ma, apparently, at least summons a look of revulsion, but does nothing about it.

Funny? Yep. Parental freakshow? You bet.

Good luck, kid. You have the rest of your life ahead of you. And, maybe one day, taxidermy school.

Thanks, COED Magazine's Parenting Fail blog.

Much like Navy SEALs, the brains behind the NMA World Edition are not afraid to go almost anywhere.

Case in point, the group's latest computer animated newscast featuring the special forces hit on Osama bin Laden. Public Enemy No. 1 has barely sunk to the bottom of his watery grave, and we already have explainer video, sort of, showing how the operation went down.

Amazingly like a video game, as it turns out. One where the good guys urinate on the bad guy's corpse and he is sent to Hell to be raped by pigs. You know. The usual.

All the news that's fit to treat like an Onion article gone bad.

Harry Potter and Voldemort are just about ready to get it on one last time - no, not in a Dumblerdore conspiracy theory way - with the final installment of J.K. Rowling's wizarding series due in theaters this summer.

But through the magic of the Internet, we can see the latest trailer now, avoiding the deluge of ads we're forced to sit through for a decent trailer at the theater these days.

And no, this clip is not in 3D, much to Roger Ebert's joy. Though the decidedly dark final chapter is, which should provide an affect akin to a disappearing cloak for all those shadowy scenes of gloomy teenagehood.

The high-flying Chicago Bulls are the No. 1 seed in the playoffs, a fun team to watch and the home probably league MVP Derrick Rose.

But for those of us who can't make it to the United Center in person, perhaps the best thing about watching a Bulls game is the over-the-top enthusiasm and calls provided by former Bulls big man Stacey King.

As D. Rose is a game-winning machine, King is a catchphrase-making marvel. His numerous nicknames - Windy City Assassin - for players and gleeful spouting for hot sauce help get the TV fan from seat to feet.

So it's only fitting that there's finally a line of t-shirts to help commemorate the moments King creates. The Stacey Shirts venture is pretty new and you can contact them on Facebook to suggest new shirt phrases or take a look at the $17.99 shirts, available in white or red and expanding as Stacey spits brilliance. But act quick - before the NBA, Bulls, Comcast or King sue them for trademark infringement.

Now, some hot sauce ...

We're combing through the tidbits leading up to the latest royal coupling - so you don't have to. Make sure to check back in often for updates on Wills and Kate as they make their way toward Westminster Abbey.

May God have mercy on our souls ...



Aren't you a little sad to be a stormtrooper?


Chicago band Scattered Trees is about to drop their next album, Sympathy, due April 5. In fact, they've released the first single, Love and Leave.


But if you're off to see them tonight at Shubas, you may want to pack your ray shields. The video for that single brings a tortured love story from far, far away into the band's Chicago apartment, complete with some really sad stormtroopers and a withering Boba Fett.


The Force is strong in this one. So is the heartbreak.


Who knew stormtroopers were so emo?

President Obama is no stranger to taking a shellacking at the polls. Or a beating in the press. Or even a tongue-lashing from the right.

But a flattening from a fish sandwich?

Such is the case from the KFC ad that ran, however briefly, in Hong Kong for a fish sandwich.

Two things are evident from the effort from Yum! Brands ad: 1) This clearly didn't deliver the message they wanted and 2) they serve lemon wedges with fish sandwiches over there!

The spot, a riff on the Obamamantra of "Change," was pulled before the fish had a chance to flatten KFC's image too much. But, before the presidential pardons roll out, consider some of the stunning dialogue:

"Change, not only for your mom, but for you, your stomach, for a better taste! Mmm, change is good."

Change. It tastes bittersweet. And lemony.

"It was meant to be a spoof and no disrespect was intended," a spokesman for Yum! Brands of the Hong Kong market spot thant ran when Chinese President Hu Jintao visited the U.S. "It is no longer airing and will not be re-aired."

Would they have done this when Rahm was still running the White House?

It's well-documented that Kanye West provides some of the best content that Twitter has to offer.

Now, when you add the music of Josh Groban, like Jimmy Kimmel Live did, well, Kanye's tweets get even better.

The language for this video is straight outta New York. Fugghedabout playing it loud at work.

Chicago is a town that appreciates clean streets after a snowstorm. In fact, mayoral careers have risen and fallen on the ability of the Department of Streets and Sanitation to pull a Mr. Plow and get the white stuff packed away.

The good folks of the Big Apple have been whipping themselves into a blizzard frenzy as New York struggles to get anything done following their big snow over the weekend. "Where are the plows?!?" they cry. "When will the snow be cleared?!?" they demand as the situation becomes critical and, in some cases, apparently deadly.

And along comes a city worker to answer their question with a resounding "be careful what you ask for."

Investigations and lamentations ensue after a front-loader, apparently stuck in the snow, is dragged out by a tow truck repeatedly into a parked SUV - with the angry screams of the apparent owner in the background and a semi-gleeful videographer capturing the whole mess.

Indeed, a supervisor may not be enough to fix this as it seems like shoveling teens may not be the only ones hitting the rum out there.

Paging Michael Bilandic: New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has some questions for you ...

Week in WTF?!

| 1 Comment
By which we mean, of course, "Wow, that's fascinating!" Because during the last few days -- Wednesday, Thursday, Friday -- what tom-foolery has taken place out on the Interwebs. Here's a look at the things that have caused us to say, "Whee! That's funny!"

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
Donald Trump's toupe (er, hair?) blows rather unnaturally in the wind at a recent football game. That toupe is fired! I just can't seem to look away. It's so mesmerizing.

Not what Sting had in mind
Somehow I doubt the red light Sting was talking about was the same one Rudolph has for a nose. If it was then Roxanne has got some explaining to do.

Scientific fun
These scientists pull a prank on a co-worker that he will not soon forget. I'm sure his chiropractor is happy though.

If only our telemarketers were this dedicated to getting a subscription
So do I need a computer to see the graphics? No, they're in the newspaper! A man manages to keep a telemarketer on the phone for a ridiculous amount of time. Only her boss knows how many actual sales she could have made in the meantime.

George Costanza's hands were better
This hand model is freaking us out a little. She claims she doesn't cook, clean, pick things up, or do anything with her hands. Sounds to us like it's just a good excuse to lazily sit around all day waving her luxurious hands.

Well, hopefully we've left you wondering -- WTF!? Check back next week for more ridiculousness.

As it turns out, Lebron, Cleveland has an answer for for the question following The Decision.

In a word ... well, OK, maybe we can't use that word. Or that one. Or even that one. But suffice to say, the non-NSFW word is "stuff it."

So these Cleveland fans, Lebron, so it's not "what should you do," so much as "what have you done?"

Ahh, the fan-athlete relationship. So fragile. Built on greed, anger, mistrust and blind allegiance. All things which never lead to a happy ending.

In case you've missed it, the original question when Lebron asked, "What should I do?"

Charlie Chaplin is regarded by many film buffs as a visionary. A man perhaps ahead of his time in many ways.

But did he document cellphone technology in 1928?

Irish filmmaker and Chaplin fan George Clarke has his questions.

Upon buying a box set of Chaplin films he ran across a few seconds in "The Circus" - see the whole movie here - that certainly appears to be an older person strolling behind a zebra holding what appears to be a mobile to his or her ear.

And that, friends and neighbors, is how a meme is born. The Internets blew up with people speculating as to what it could be and just why this person would be having an apparent conversation into it. Are they just a loon out for a walk through a movie set? Or a time traveler demonstrating the art of oblivious phone zone to the past?

And if it's an iPhone, how many bars did they get?

I fantasized about this back in Chicago ...

So begins Kanye West's so-called full-length film for "Runaway" posted to YouTube.

And like his recently controversial proposed album cover for the upcoming album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," this is a NSFW effort. And yes, there is a half-naked bird woman in the film, but the issues are more with some naughty words than anything else. So earphones should insulate you from repercussions (clean version here).

And as with most of his work, Kanye just might have an instant classic.

Explosions, fast cars, the aforementioned bird woman (fallen angel/Phoenix) and discussing every thing from Devil worship to Illuminati conspiracies to booty calls with ballet in the background, sheep and even some fowl cannibalism, there really is something for the whole family here.

Now, at 34-plus minutes, this won't be getting massive play on MTV. Of course, unless Kanye turned into a "Guido Juicehead" macking at Miami Beach, his best chances of cracking that channel's primetime lineup revolve around awards show hijacking anyway.

But the real question may be whether the world is ready for the rock opera - hip hopera? - again? If anybody can pull it off, Kanye can.

But you can judge for yourself. Settle in at your desk, keep an eye out for the boss and put your company broadband to good use for a half hour.
