"Hmm, we need a print ad that's provocative, that will really get the Indian people to notice how good our mattresses are so they'll buy them."
"I know, let's do one about when Malala Yousafzai got shot in the face, and say it was our mattress that helped her bounce back."
のほも is such a good word?? the concept is kind of hard to fully get across in translation, but basically it means a feeling of pure, deep, platonic affection, and i think thats beautiful

I feel like this won't really work out too poorly for them.

If he had only switched the beard for a moustache, he could argue he was impersonating Ringo Starr. As it is, yeah, that's pretty bad.

Driverless cars could cripple local law enforcement budgets

Good. Marginal tickets are a stealth tax that should never have been treated as a source of revenue in the first place.

I see a grim, dark future where white people are going to have to help pay for law enforcement.

Russian cult worships female cartoon character.

Go on, try to guess which one before you click. You'll be surprised!

I didn't guess it, but my last exposure to that character was actually in a porn comic. :-(

I think what's really weird about this is the fact of all these guys getting together and having IRL meets about this. Other than that, we've all seen similarly bizarre things online - and even than, I suppose it's not that much weirder than a furry get-together.

The worship aspect manages to make it significantly creepier though!

Holy shit.

The Spanish text reads "You must have a permit to play in this park. Violators will be subject to police action."

This is in Delaware, apparently.

EDIT: okay, this appears to simply be a case of idiot employees simply installing the wrong sign.
