People Can't Get Over The $168 Price Of These 'Extreme Cut Out Jeans'

I never got the idea of walking around in jeans with holes in them.

Maybe I don’t get fashion or style, maybe it’s because I’m the child of immigrants who were very concerned with not looking shabby. But whenever I’d watch Beverly Hills 90210 and I’d see a character rocking ripped denim, I would say to myself, “What is wrong with them? Do they think that looks cool?”

And maybe there is something to be said about the “rough and tumble” look. 

I’d argue that the above person would probably look great in everything (great abs), but I could get some pants with a little bit of a tear in them.

But apparently, people need more holes. Like, a lot more holes. Which may be why Carmar debuted their “Extreme Cut Out Jean.”

Described as a “high rise pant with large statement cutouts on front and back,” these jeans look like you decked out your washing machine with razor blades and tossed a pair of Levis in there.

Not only do these bad boys not cover up any major part of your body and you’re apparently required to wear a one-piece bathing suit “underneath” it, they also cost a whopping $ 168.

Now you might say to yourself, “Well, the sides of these pants must surely offer some level of protection against the elements?”

But they don’t.

And if the sides don’t offer up any protection, then surely, surely, surely the back of the pants might offer up a buffer against wind and rain?

No such luck. Just a whole lot of exposed booty. 

One would ever argue that these loose, thin strips of cloth make these things annoying and dangerous to wear. They can easily get snagged on things, trapped in subway doors, handles, gate hooks. I mean what if a cat sees this strip of cloth and thinks it’s a toy?

People roasted the jeans after seeing them pop up online.

Maybe you could wear these things to the beach for some reason…I guess?

But $ 168 for them?! Really?!

I mean I guess there are some functional benefits to wearing these.

But it’s easy to see why so many people hate them.

People are having a hard time to even figure out how to wear these.

In what situation could anyone wear these $ 50 trousers? If it’s a sunny day, then you’re going to get weird tan lines on your legs as a result, plus your butt will be sweaty from having fabric clinging to it all day. If it’s a bit cold, then you’ll be freezing because half of your legs will be exposed.

I’m starting to think that designers intentionally create stuff like this to give themselves some brand recognition, because it’s hard to believe that there are enough people out there buying stuff like this. But then again what do I know? I buy a lot of my clothes at Costco.

Blake Lively Deleted Her Instagram Photos Which Means We Can't See Her Mocking Ryan Reynolds

Blake Lively is popular on social media, in part because of her amazing relationship with her husband, Ryan Reynolds. The two seem to have some sort of competition over who can mock the other the best online, if they’re not busy clowning Hugh Jackman.

So imagine the despair when followers saw Lively has deleted all of her Instagram posts:

And even weirder, she unfollowed Reynolds, and started following only people with the name “Emily Nelson.”

Lively’s Twitter account is hinting at the name as well, with a screenshot of someone playing Hangman. Creepy:

The women getting followed are equal parts thrilled beyond belief and weirded out:

And the people not named Emily Nelson are wondering, can they be? For the follow?

And whoever is managing this stunt is leaning into the weird factor hard:

Some people have been jumping to the worst possible conclusions immediately:

Calm down!!

It turns out Lively is promoting a new movie, Taylor Swift-style. Buzzfeedreports she’s starring in an adaptation of a book called A Simple Favor, which is about a woman whose best friend Emily Nelson suddenly disappears. That is scary, but it’s also fiction.

It just goes to show that if you wait long enough, you might get noticed by a celebrity promotion:

Or you’ll try:

Someday your name will be called!

People Can't Believe They Were Wrong About The New Royal Baby's Name

There’s no doubt that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, AKA, William and Kate, are an adorable couple with an adorable family.

Just look at them.

And now there’s a new addition the the monarchy, a bouncing baby boy that Kate Middleton gladly presented to the world, looking absolutely stunning hours after delivery.

Because they’re royalty, and Kate Middleton’s beautiful, and they seem like pretty great people, there’s been a lot of interest in the monarchy’s personal lives. The latest gossip churning on the rumor mill were all the possible names the couple would pick for the latest addition to their family.

In fact there was so much hullabaloo surrounded by the new baby’s name announcement that bookies started placing bets on it, no fooling

The heavy favorite was “Albert,” like Prince Albert, who was married to Queen Victoria between 1840 and 1861. Let’s not also forget the equally important former WWE star.

But, rather quickly, it became evident that the bookies were probably wrong, even before the baby’s name was officially announced.

It turns out the child’s name isn’t one anyone expected: Louis Arthur Charles. Well, “Arthur” is in there, but as a middle name.

In addition to people gloating over how wrong the oddsmakers were, there were some different reactions to the news. Some pro-Brexit people immediately politicized the naming of the baby, calling the names “Remainer” ones.

While others used the naming as a chance to come up with some choice One Direction jokes.

Someone noticed a trend among men’s royal family names: that they’re all just being rearranged for different members of the monarchy.

Popular Arthurs were a bit upset that their name was relegated to the middle one…

Then there were some people who noticed that the dress Kate wore when she showed her baby to the world looked really, really familiar.

And although people had their own theories about the reasoning behind the naming of the new royal baby, and what he’d liked to be called…

There’s a bit of family history behind the naming of this little guy.

And if you lost some money by betting on Albert, well, one, why the heck are you betting on baby names anyway? Do something normal like a horse race. But, two, you can console yourself with the fact that the little guy is healthy and absolutely adorable.

Which is all anyone could ever ask for of a baby. Congratulations to the royal couple!

People Can't Stop Laughing At How Ridiculous Their Pets Look When They're Sleeping

One of the things I admire most about my cats is their ability to sleep anywhere—on the bed, behind the toilet, draped over the shoe I’ve been looking for for the last twenty minutes. They just have the capacity for bone deep relaxation. And sometimes it looks really, really weird.

A popular Japanese hashtag that loosely translates to “be an untidy sleeper” is circulating on Twitter right now, and it shows just how freaky animals get when they’re chasing that REM sleep:

These animals are all supposedly okay. They’re just ridiculous, not in comas. But if you saw a person looking like this on the couch, you’d scream:

This rabbit food was set to stun (I checked, the rabbit on this person’s timeline is FINE):

Animals don’t care where they land:

Or if they’re scaring the crap out of you:

Or what corner of the cage they’re crammed into:

But, again, they’re okay!!

Even if it seems like they’re trying NOT to be okay:

And then, in the snap of your fingers, they’re ready to play again.

Kim And Kanye Revealed The Name Of Their Third Child And People Can't Handle It

When Kim Kardashian and Kanye West has their first child and named her North West, it seemed obvious what direction things would go in. Obviously, their next three kids would be South West, East West, and eventually West West. But when you expect Kimye to zig, they zag.

Little Saint West was born, adding a much holier dimension to the family. When the couple announced they were expecting a third child via surrogate, it was anyone’s guess what was coming.

Now, here she is. Chicago West.

Kim also RTd this, for the folks not sure how to pronounce Chi, because they’re not from Chicago. It’s like “shy.”

Kim and Kanye can’t go for a walk without the Internet weighing in, so you better believe people have thoughts about named a kid after a major metropolitan area:

I understand why people are freaked. Celebrities are generally known for giving their children really ground, average, and unremarkable names. Also for hating drama and attention. 

What do Kim and Kanye think they’re doing??

Doug Jones Beat Roy Moore In The Alabama Senate Election And Twitter Can't Believe It

After a campaign in which Republican candidate Roy Moore was accused of pursuing relationships with teenage girls during his 80s, Democrat Doug Jones has won the Alabama Senate Election with a narrow margin. Jones will be the first Democratic senator from Alabama in more than two decades. 

Roy Moore was expected to win the election, which was called when Jeff Sessions gave up his seat to be President Donald Trump’s Attorney General. 

President Donald Trump had endorsed Moore in a series of tweets, while the accusations led many Republican senators to disown their candidate. The Republican majority in the Senate is now down to just two votes.

In an election that was decided by a few thousand votes, and an incredibly high turnout for groups such as African Americans, you can probably guess how social media reacted. 

Jeff Flake took to Twitter to slam Moore. 

As did Hillary Clinton. 

And here’s how the rest of social media reacted…

Woman Tweets 2008 Trivial Pursuit Question That Did Not Age Well–And People Can't Even

Writer S.E. Sinkhorn posted a pic to Twitter of an old Trivial Pursuit card from 2008. Less than ten years ago in time, perhaps a million years in feelings. There’s so much we know now that we didn’t know then, and most of it is bad.

It’s perhaps understandable then, why Sinkhorn took the question, “Who has never been Batman?” pretty personally.

In 2008, the makers of Trivial Pursuit thought we’d live in a world where Ben Affleck would never be Batman. Little did they know.

Everyone in the replies was upset that the game gave movie execs ideas, but they still had a few knocks to get out against other offending Batmans:

Also, someone pointed out this was a similar question in an edition of Cranium, though they don’t specify the year this edition was printed. But if it preceded Affleck’s casting as the dark knight, that’s scary:

Former 'Buffy' Star Perfectly Recreates Iconic Celeb Looks And Instagram Can't Get Enough

Tom Lenk is likely a familiar face to any fans of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. He played nerd boy Andrew on the series, a creative individual with a habit of making up stories at every opportunity. An actor doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with their character’s direction, but Lenk is clearly as dramatic in real life as he was on TV. 

His Instagram account is a deluge of creativity in the form of mocking other celebrities:

It’s doubtful that Lenk considers it mocking, actually; each photo really looks like an homage to favorite looks sported by (mostly) female stars. The handmade creations assembled from what appears to be largely household goods are inspiring, hilarious and fierce as hell:

Khal Drogo And Tormund Met In Real Life And Fans Can't Get Enough

Jason Momoa was in London over the weekend, according toBuzzFeed, promoting his new film. But just because you have to work, doesn’t mean there isn’t time for play. You know who else was in the area? Most of the cast of Game of Thrones, and when Khal Drogo is in town, the group gets together.

Momoa posted a delightful recap of his time visiting old friends that gets hilariously darker and blurrier as the party seems to go on. He’s also wearing a crazy hat for some reason:

But here’s the big news: we finally get to see Khal Drogo and Tormund together, at long last! And Jon Snow snuck in there. This is like a reunion that is entirely based on fan fiction, and it’s perfect.

Momoa also reunited with his Khaleesi, Emilia Clarke, and introduced her to another superhero, Gal Gadot. What if Wonder Woman just showed up in Westeros? That would be a rad crossover.

But this is adorable enough on its own:

It’s wonderful when fans get to see TV and movie stars they love looking like they love each other. Now, if only we could figure out what pub they’re at tonight…
