Cartoonist Bil Keane, creator of the comic strip “The Family Circus,” died today at the age of 89. Ordinarily, this is where we on the internet would pay tribute to Keane’s work, but unfortunately, no one actually likes The Family Circus, so we’re not entirely sure how to handle this.
Because we cannot in good conscience ridicule the work of someone who recently died, we will instead do the exact opposite and praise these comics which have suddenly become great today! So get ready to laugh and definitely not think to yourself ‘is a joke missing here?’ with this list of 50 Suddenly Great Family Circus Cartoons:

Ridiculousness Alert! German Artist and Photographer Markus Reugels — who you may recall from his insane water droplet photographs — just unveiled his latest creation, a “Water Droplet Zoo,” meaning, he spent thousands of hours photographing colored water droplets to come up with ones that abstractly resembled animals.
Make sense? Doesn’t matter, because it’s cramazing — here’s 5 of the photos on display (Click For Full Size):
The Missed Connections section on Craigslist is always a good place to read about lost loves, or crossed paths, or creeps who stare at you on the subway and then post about it on the internet. But no time of year does the Missed Connections section come alive quite as much as it does the day after Halloween, when finding your true love becomes all the more complicated because said person was wearing a costume.
Below, we bring you the 17 Funniest Halloween Missed Connections that happened this weekend. Maybe one of them is you?? (If you dressed up like Darth Maul, one of them is probably you.)
17. Skeleton Guy Looking For Sarah
I WAS THE GUY DRESSED IN THE SKELETON COSTUME YOU WERE DRESSED AS YOURSELF BUT I SAID YOU LOOKED TO COOL TO BE DRESSED AS YOURSELF, GAVE YOU MY NUMBER BUT BEING DRUNK GAVE YOU THE WRONG ONE I THINK,

You were walking down 26th towards 10th on Friday night where you crossed the street and we had a nice chat about your giant Oreo costume while walking to 9th Avenue together. I should have just kept walking with you until I had to get on the subway instead of turning down 9th. You were cute and nice and dressed as a giant cookie. What’s not to like?
Heidi Klum and Seal threw a Halloween Party Monday night (no, not their weekend ‘Bodies Exhibit costume’ party, a different one), and clearly, their celeb guests felt the pressure to match their notorious costume-ridiculousness with ridiculously elaborate costumes of their own.

1. Heidi Klum & Seal

We all have nerdy obsessions, but spending countless hours channeling those obsessions into intricately-designed pumpkins truly represents another stratosphere of too-impressive-to-be-sad geekiness. In honor of these brave, unselfconscious souls who assuredly got laid instantly after carving these, here’s a list of The 50 Nerdiest Jack O’ Lanterns Ever:
50. Battlestar Cylon
48. Settlers Of Catan Board
What’s better than seasonal pumpkin-themed coffees, beers, and pastries all put together? How about pumpkin-themed ZOOS??
The London Zoo spruced up some of their animal enclosures this week by adding pumpkins so the animals could

When selecting a Halloween costume, there’s as many different approaches as there are non-friends’ Halloween parties you annually weasel your way out of attending: Do you go with something sexy? Something scary? Something just cool or funny or dumb or nostalgia-ey? It’s pretty much up to you.
However, there’s one category of ready-made costumes that should never, EVER be worn: Costumes that are trying to be funny, sexy, or referential, but when you actually see them, they’re creepy as f**k. To help weed out this phenomenon, we’ve collected 50 examples from actual, current costume websites — from monstrously inaccurate characters to joke-costumes bordering on the rapey, here are this year’s 50 Most Unintentionally Terrifying Costumes:
50. Shrek Donkey
Remember that scene in Shrek The Third when Buffalo Bill murders Donkey and wears his face?
Orangutans look like this (and are friends with dogs). They do not look like this:
Fresh off 2007′s cumbersomely-titled (but surprisingly good) fourth Die Hard installment Live Free Or Die Hard, the Dying Hard franchise has just announced a fifth Die Hard movie starring Bruce Willis and given it the official title: A Good Day To Die Hard.
Like many other shrewd franchises, Die Hard has chosen not to give its sequels convenient numbers, and instead given them increasingly long and roundabout titles that no one will ever say. In support of this chaotic but amusing trend, we offer up our own suggestions of Titles For The Next 10 Die Hard Sequels:
1. A-E-DIE-O-U And Sometimes Hard
2. IIIIIIIIIIIII Just Wanna Die (Hard)
3. Sex, Dies And Hardiotape
4. Get Busy Livin’ Hard Or Get Busy Dyin’ Hard
5. Die Hard: The Hardquel
