2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Hunterville is a village in New Zealand, established in 1884 by George Hunter and that according to the 2006 Census has a population of only 440. But that doesn’t stop it from gathering huge crowds from all over the island for the unique Huntaway Festival.

The Huntaway is a fun festival featuring contests like the Dog Braking Contest, pig yarding, speed shearing and the main attraction, The Shemozzle. This a special obstacle race for men or women  and their dogs, across steep hills, slipery slopes and disgusting food-stops that include sheep eyes, worms, bugs and raw meat, just to name a few.The obstacles of the Shemozzle are evealed to the contestants only 3 minutes before the race so no one can say they are really prepared.

Scarriest Dog Photos Ever?

8 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I remember seeing one of these photos on some random blog a while ago and I remember thinking “man I wouldn’t want to be in the shoes of the guy that pissed this dog off”. Today, after looking at the rest of the photos I realized the dog wasn’t angry at all, that’s how he expresses himself when he’s playing with his balls. Well, not his balls, balls…you know what I mean and if you don’t, just take a look at the pics below:

The Dog Car

Remember the movie “Dumb and Dumber” starring Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels? That was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw this puffy treasure. I remember that goofy car of theirs with the red tongue sticking-out and this is comes pretty close. My compliments to the designer. Here is the Dog Car:

The Hospital Restaurant

5 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

An unusual restaurant recently opened in Riga, the capital city of Latvia. It’s themed as a hospital, with waiters and bartenders dressed as nurses and doctors. The tables look just like hospital operating tables, made out of stainless steel with wheel chairs or dentist chairs to sit in. The usual forks and knives have been replaced with scalpels, syringes and other medical tools, while the drinks are served in vials and medical bottles. Even the bathrooms have that crepy hospital feel.

Red crosses are everywhere and that’s the last place I’d want to grab a bite, but apparently the Hospital Restaurant is becoming really popular.

The Incredible Surfing Mice

4 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Mice aren’t the most water-loving creatures in the world, but apparently Australian Shane Wilmott has trained his three little mice not only to love water but also to ride the waves on surf-boards. Shane says this way he has merged his love for surfing and for his three little rodent pets. Make sure you watch the video at the bottom of the post.

The Next Batmobile?

7 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Well I doubt it, but you have to admit if this tuned up Smart would be the next Batmobile everyone’s jaws would hit the floor. I’m not holding my breath for this ever happening, but a guy can dream. The Batsmart concept was presented at SEMA 2008 auto-show.

Aluminum Underwear

Designer Ingrid Goldbloom Bloch found a great way to recycle aluminum cans by transforming them into aluminum underwear. Appreciate the art but you wouldn’t catch me dead wearing a Coke-can-made pair of undies.

Smack That Ketchup Butt!

Sure it’s not the same as smacking a real ass, but what happens when there’s no ass to smack? Well that’s when you have to be inventive and there’s one sex-shop that decided to lend a hand to those that can only enjoy a ketchup bottle butt. Check out these bottle stickers:

Cool Uses of a Garbage Container

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Here are some ideas of how you could use a garbage container if littering stops being such a big issue. I like the idea of turning it into a pool, if you can manage to get the garbage stench out of it. But with littering a very big problem worldwide I think everyone should use garbage cans and containers for their original purpose, that would make our world a lot cleaner.

Becoming a Millionaire is Easy!

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

If you live in Zimbabwe, that is. Due to the country’s hyperinflation rate of over 231,000,000% a year, the financial authorities were forced to release larger and larger bills in order to help people buy the simplest things without carrying bricks of bills  with them. When the $10,000,000 bill was released early this year, it was worth about $4 US, but it soon became as worthless as the previous bills and now you can find the 100 billion dollars bill which you can use to buy…3 eggs.

When people want to go to a restaurant they are again forced to carry mountains of money with them. This all began in the year 2000, when president Mugabe came to power and transformed the whole country into a giant agricultural field. Now the inflation is through the roof, 80% of the population is unemployed and a third of the population has left the country. At least they can take pride in the fact that they have the highest denomination bills in the world.

Cats and Dogs Rivalry at its finest

5 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

What happened to the good all days when dogs did what they were supposed to do, chase cats? I’ve seen dogs restrain themselves from attacking felines because of their masters but this display of unusual friendship between a cat and a dog is a little hard to take? what’s next, hamsters sleeping next to snakes?

We’ve seen piglets taken in by a dogs, tiger pups raised by a monkey, it won’t be long until we see kittens nursed by dogs…what a world!

World’s Most Flexible Secretary

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I wouldn’t mind having her take all my calls, handle my mail and…Well, that last one doesn’t exactly fit the typical secretary job description. Must be nice being able to hold two jobs, one as a secretary and one as a contortionist, it’s easier to pay the bills.

Or she could be a secretary for a firm that handle a lot of male clients, she’s the perfect bait.

I wonder if she knows Rubber Boy, they could really hit it off.

Karate Monkey

Not only people want to learn kung-fu and karate. Humans strive to learn the monkey-style kung-fu while monkeys try to learn our karate. It looks like this little monkey is on the right track, it’s even trying our cuisine. Seems only normal, since we eat bananas every day.

The Roller Turtle

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I remember when I used to skate around with my roller-blades, but sadly, this little turtle can’t take his off.

A terrible accident in which it lost one of it front legs forced this turtle to spend the rest of its days on a roller-skate. It took a while to get used to it but now she’s always the first to arrive when food is served.
