Halloween Lunches

Every holiday deserves its festive dinner. Though, the Halloween is a bit special here. It is not being celebrated siting by the table, but rather outdoors. It could be a healthiest of holidays if not for the tonnes of candies — the common Halloween holiday dinner looks like the cartloads of M&Ms and Hershey’s. If you take this fact into account, this is quite obvious idea to spread the Halloween festivities onto the lunch.

Best Halloween Costumes 2013

Here we are again. Halloween is almost over and its time to look at it from a distance. What was great this year? Practically, the same stuff as the year before: the movies stuff, the cartoons stuff, and some assorted stuff. The Che Guevara T-shirt is my favourite — cool idea, near perfect realisation, and really clever pun. Though the two girls reenacting Bob Ross show are great too.

Best Pumpkin Carvings 2013

Oh, October. Every single year this time the porches and driveways of America become the dwelling of the strange orange creatures. The pumpkins are claiming this land. Big and small, the ones with the lit candles inside, and ones with the LED lighting, carved with as much skill their owner can muster. And those skills are quite mad:

Creative Beware of Dog Signs

Of course you know that the dog was the first domesticated animal. Isn’t it truly amazing that for the tens of thousands of years man relies on his dog? You can teach the old dog some new tricks, but the caveman inside us will still think of it as of a perfect guard.

First, the classics. Gun owners love their pets, both dogs and cats.

Forget the dog. Beware of owner.

Now this is really sinister. What strange could be about the dog. Try to figure it out if you dare.

Japanese signs are very graphic. And this is a good thing: no translation needed.

Grumpy Cat Makeup

Expressing yourself with makeup could be dated back at least a hundred thousands years. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors painted their faces to scare off evil spirits and annoying fellow tribesmen. It is easier to put a paint on your face than to repeat those two words over and over again.

A Reddit user molliemander05, a habitué of the Makeup Addiction sub-reddit, has shared her latest (and greatest) creation. This Halloween she will be the internet superstar — the Grumpy Cat itself.

And what seems to be pretty logical, a picture of her wearing a makeup inspired by the internet meme was instantly turned into another internet meme. That's how it works.
