Husband Learns He's At An Instagram-Famous Hotel, Stages Ridiculous Photo Shoot

Imgur user Gilbert Jasono recently visited the luxury resort Ponta dos Ganchos in Brazil for his honeymoon. While there, his wife informed him that the resort is popular with Brazilian Instagram models. 

So while there, he decided to look through their Instagram accounts and painstakingly recreate their photos. The results? Magical. 

Yes, he spent his honeymoon adding monochrome filters to these excellent modelling shots. 

This man sacrificed precious vacation time for our amusement. 

And we think it was worth it. 

There were plenty of beach shots, obviously. 

And one on a tree bench. 

This is the greatest thing ever.

Chrissy Teigen Trolls John Legend For Pretending To Be Something He's Not In Photograph

Love somebody long enough and you get to make fun of them. That’s kind of the point of marriage, right?

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have been together for over a decade, and she’s earned the right to give her man hell. It just so happened that the latest reason was baseball. John attended the World Series with fashion photographer Mike Rosenthal, and though neither bleed Dodger blue, they can afford some decent seats. 

The World Series is in Los Angeles, and fan of the sport or no, it’s still a pretty big deal. Therefore one doesn’t need to be a superfan to get excited when the Dodgers do something well, which I assume is what predicated this photograph.

“What sport! What merriment! Achievements thus lay bare the might of mankind!” they allegedly said.

Is that like a high fifteen? Regardless, she got ’em good. Delightful.

This Man Thinks He's Being Haunted By A Ghost Child With A Dented Head

Illustrator Adam Ellis thinks he is being haunted by a murderous ghost. And after reading his Twitter thread about it, you might end up agreeing with him.

One where Ellis was able to see his vision clearly enough that he could draw it later.

But the vision was INTENSE.

And it wasn’t the last dream on the subject, either.

Holy moly. Okay, this is all terrifying, but just as long as he doesn’t ask Dear David three questions, he should be fi—

YOU HAD ONE JOB, ADAM!

Of course, he goes down a rabbit hole looking up information about Dear David.

Oh, like you were going to get off THAT easy. David’s a ghost, dude!

AHHH IT IS TOTALLY DEAR DAVID.

Um, RIP, and thank you for the very spooky Twitter thread.

Guy Paid Stranger's Parking Meter And Everyone Thinks He's A Genius

Guy Paid Stranger’s Parking Meter And Everyone Thinks He’s A Genius

A car insurance salesman took a twenty-five cent gamble that is paying off in a huge way. A Reddit user posted an image of a note he found on his car reading, “I paid your parking meter for you … imagine what else I’m willing to do to protect your car.” Attached was a business card for a man who was identified as Andrew Cooney, who sells insurance in Rochester, Minnesota.

Marketing mastermind

The poster captioned the note, saying, “Got caught up and couldn’t pay my meter today,” and labeling Cooney as a “Marketing Mad Man.” Cooney confirmed to Mashable that this is indeed one of his many strategies for attracting business, but he probably never thought it would lead to being on the front page of Reddit. The comments in Cooney’s favor are wildly enthusiastic:

Though of course, there are plenty of suspicious people on Reddit, who were quick to suggest the whole thing is a scheme. I mean, it kinda is, but probably not one that Cooney thought would get THIS big:

If Cooney did post this image to Reddit himself, he’s even more of a genius than we all initially thought. That’s also a much cheaper form of advertising than going up and down Rochester’s main street filling meters. My hat’s off to him, either way.

Donald Trump Has A Panic Attack When He Realizes He's Actually President On SNL

The nation’s still in protest and shock over Donald Trump’s Presidential win. People expected the disdain for his victory to settle down after a few weeks but it seems that people’s concerns are growing more and more with each cabinet choice the president-elect’s administration makes.

And as his time in office draws closer a reality is setting in: Trump has made a lot of huge campaign promises, many of them that he’s already going back on. There are a lot of people, both Democrat and Republican, who aren’t quick to let him forget those promises.

SNL hasn’t forgotten either, and used some of Trump’s biggest campaign platforms in last night’s hilarious cold open. And Trump was absolutely freaking out once he realized he had to put his money where his mouth is.

I’m scared/excited to see how this Presidency turns out.

Colorblind Teen's Birthday Gift Finally Lets Him See What He's Been Missing All His Life

I have a younger brother who is color blind. Now I don’t know what that’s like, but I can imagine it must’ve been pretty frustrating for him growing up thinking that the flag was red white and green or that the Ninja Turtles were all brown, especially when the theme song says otherwise.

And if Paul Dano’s character in Little Miss Sunshine was any indication, not being able to see color is a deal-breaker for some careers and there really isn’t any way to rectify it.

Well, it turns out there is. With this nifty new invention called enchroma glasses.

Imgur user Brammerz got them as a surprise for his 17th birthday, courtesy of his awesome parents. When he put them on, he was introduced to an entirely new world filled with exciting colors.

The best part was the longer he kept the glasses on, the stronger the colors appeared to him. It was obvious he was super stoked.

“Oh my god this is so amazing.”

Now, Brammerz is able to see the 6 in the middle of this colored circle. Before, it all looked like a bunch of similarly-colored smaller circles.

Brammerz gave an example of what his particular color-blindness looks like by comparing these two images of that adorable floating house from the heartrending film, Up.

He was absolutely floored when he looked down at his own t-shirt and saw it in a different color.

Brammerz isn’t the only one enjoying the benefits of wearing the glasses, there are tons of people who can now see all colors in their true vivid glory thanks to these magical spectacles, courtesy of motherf*cking science, baby. Like these two brothers.

To learn more about color blindness and these shades, click here. The cheapest pair costs $ 349, which isn’t that much considering they give people the ability to do something they were biologically incapable of doing before.
