Clean Room

Most parents can relate to how hard it is to get their kids to clean the bathroom. This particular mom left her son a note asking him to clean the bathroom “like the Queen of England is visiting.” Clearly, she just wanted him to make it spotless. But he took things a bit too literally and, well, cleaned the bathroom as if the Queen of England were really visiting—and she was a huge nerd.

Benedict Cumberbatch Pokemon

If you thought seeing Nicholas Cage’s face on various Pokemon was disturbing, then things are about to get worse. A lot worse. You won’t be seeing Cage’s beady eyes staring back at you from your favorite pocket monsters. Instead, you’ll find yourself staring into the face of Benedict Cumberbatch courtesy of the Pokebatchichooseyou Tumblr.

You might know him from the Sherlock Holmes TV series, you might also know him as the villain in the upcoming Star Trek movie, but for the time-being, you’ll know him as the guy who had his face superimposed to various Pokemon.

Liam Neeson’s Ra’s al Ghul and Jim Carrey’s Riddler are also thrown into the mix for some more fun and games.

We’re missing the different movie versions of Batman, but maybe Rafa’s saving that for his next art series. Check out our favorites from Rafa’s gallery after the break!

Roulette IQ Cube

If you are one of the few that think Rubik’s cubes are beneath your intelligence, then maybe it’s time you gave these Roulette Wheel IQ cubes a shot. It kind of looks like a Rubik’s cube, but instead of plain flat faces, there are a bunch of numbered wheels. Aside from twisting and rearranging to make sure each face is of a singular color, you also have to make sure the sequence of the numbers is in order.

They’re now available for pre-order and will be shipping out by the end of the month.
