2012 was a fantastic year for pranks. Remember that awesomely sassy 'Psh' joke or the adorable Mistletoe setup? We'll say it til we're blue in the face-- we love pranks! They just make life a tad bit more interesting. Now that 2013 has rolled around, we think there's no better way to welcome the year than by bringing you a whole new set of hilarious shenanigans.
Snow is one of the greatest inventions of good ol' Mother Nature. Sure it can be a pain sometimes, but the stuff is also really cool! Take making awesome snowmen, for example. Can you do that with rain? Wind? Sunshine? No, because snow rules.
Recently, we've noticed a dramatic increase in the amount of people using and/or talking about Sriracha sauce, a spicy concoction made from chili peppers, vinegar, salt, sugar and garlic which has been one of our favorites for a long time. Awesome, welcome to the club, everyone.
We like to think man is a talented species. For starters, we're capable of eating Denny's entire 'Hobbit' menu in 19 minutes flat and dominating in ping pong sans arms. There's no better male ego boost than to reminisce over such accomplishments. It turns out our hairy ancestors are talented too.
Criminal activity is getting more and more creative by the day. This means trying to dupe cops requires out-of-the-box thinking and, in some cases, a hankering for ravioli. So if you want to have some criminal fun, you'll have to one-up the last crook.
'This is 40' is a hilarious new comedy starring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann as an older version of the couple they played in the equally funny 'Knocked Up.' It's basically an entertaining take on how married couples deal with life once they hit the daunting 4-0. Sure, things can get hard once you get up to that fourth decade, but we can't overlook the tough challenges one faces in the younger years. Introducing 'This is One.'
Welcome to the new year, y'all! We survived the Mayan Apocalypse, went to our office holiday parties without going totally nuts and witnessed Kathy Griffin trying to get in Anderson Cooper's pants. We're still trying to get that image out of our brains. Regardless, we made it to January, and that's pretty impressive.
It's hard to believe the holidays have come and gone in a matter of weeks, which means all of a sudden our "binge eating" is going to be frowned upon. It also means it's time to think about taking down our festive decorations. This can be a bummer not only because it's like getting rid of all seasonal cheer, but we also haven't the slightest idea how to get rid of our Christmas trees. Luckily, we've discovered a step-by-step instructional guide that walks us through this process in a painless manner.
As 2012 comes to an end and we're reminiscing about the year's greatest internet celebs, there's a certain hilarious feline that tops our list-- the one and only 'Grumpy Cat.' Tarder Sauce, as the sad kitty is also known, first debuted on Reddit, and the feline has since become a furry superstar, scoring interviews left and right and inspiring tons of funny memes.
Yes, it's true we're borderline obsessed with dressing up our dogs (and any other animal for that matter), from the hilarious for Halloween to festive garb for Christmastime. But can you blame us? Pets are, like, 10,000 times cuter when clothing is involved.
While we're usually to blame for starting up said shenanigans, recently we've seen something strange happening-- animals are beginning to get in on the action all by themselves (or so we say). The latest ones to do this? Dapper dogs.
We love Santa. We really do! He's probably the coolest old guy we know, spending his life making presents, managing elves and eating cookies. Truth be told, we're sort of jealous. The jolly old guy usually looks bright and cheery and not all that scary, which is yet another reason we're fans.
There's something about the holidays that puts a lot of us here at TheFW into extra crafty moods. Maybe it's all those awesome Etsy decorations we so wish we could copy or just the fact we're feeling particularly festive this time of year. Either way, trying to get all creatively crafty is just plain old fun.
On Christmas morning, there's nothing worse than getting a bad reaction to one of your presents. This is especially prevalent among the younger crowd, particularly those under age 12. Why? Well, the kiddos don't necessarily have an understanding of faking appreciation and re-gifting later, so it just comes off as bratty behavior.
It's been one hell of a great beer week for us. We've learned which brews are awesome gifts (and apology presents for grabbing the wrong "Christmas hams" at the office party) and which ale we should choose to celebrate the impending end of the world. Now, we're stoked to bring you the so-called "world's best beer."
For most of us here in the good ol' USA, winter means cold, cold weather. While a lot of the time that can really stink, it can also mean the arrival of snow, and we all know that's the best part of the wintry months! Snow angels are possible, intense snowball fights happen and (probably most importantly) snowmen can be made.
The Christmas season is the happiest time of year. We get to spend extra time with our family and friends, and there are endless supplies of cookies. While these few weeks are filled with tons of cheer, it's also the sappiest time of year, especially in the good ol' USA. It's the ideal time for overseas military men to surprise their loved ones, and of course, create tearjerker alert YouTube videos of it all.
The odds of us ever winning the lottery are about as high as our shot at scoring any of the babes we feature: approximately zero. Even still, we can't help but stupidly spend tons of cash on lottery tickets, and even more time staring at those babes.
Today marks the end of Movember, which sucks. Come tomorrow, our upper lip bushes will no longer be a symbol of our manliness, but rather a suggestion we're one of those creepy dudes who hangs in the dark corner of the strip club in jorts and a leather jacket.
Santa Claus rules. Unless his beard gets stuck mid-mall stunt, then his cool status gets a little iffy. But otherwise, good ol' St. Nick is really awesome. Why? For starters, he has reindeer as pets, gives out presents for a living and gets thousands of free homemade cookies on Christmas Eve. Basically, the guy's livin' the life. It's no wonder he's survived to be like, hundreds of years old!
