I Love These Goddamn Stock Video Baboons and So Will You

A solid meme for a Friday afternoon: Stock footage of baboons doing human things, paired with silly one-liner captions.

Kirk Cameron Could Barely Hear Jesus as He Kept Fellating the Crocoduck

Kirk Cameron, God’s chosen actor, knows that the heavenly father is real because no one’s ever seen a half-crocodile, half-duck called a Crocoduck, though that is most likely because Kirk Cameron made it up. But what if the Crocoduck were real, and what if it put its foot-long Crockoduck penis in Kirk Cameron’s… » 7/15/15 6:15pm 7/15/15 6:15pm

Reddit CEO Offers Users Shitty Apology: "I Don't Have All the Answers"

Over the weekend, Reddit’s users had themselves a fit, shutting down almost all of the major subreddits and likening the site’s interim CEO, Ellen Pao, to as many genocidal dictators as they could manage.
