Baby skeletor 2

Have you ever looked at Skeletor and wondered what he’d look like as a little blue doll? No, most of us haven’t. Thanks to a new product, though, we all get to see what Skeletor looked like as a baby. This Masters of the Universe doll is 12-inches and has full articulation. He comes seated on a toilet, and he looks scary and bizarre.

It gets weirder: you have to be 18 or older to purchase the product. ComicsAlliance states it’s “loosely based on a bit from Robot Chicken.” That sketch can’t be described with words – it’s so crazy and also not safe for work.

See another shot of Skeletor and the Robot Chicken video after the break.

1a49_valentines_day_costume_tribbles

When you first look at this Tribble, you might think it’s just a Valentine’s Day gimmick. However, there is a story behind the pink hue. According to Memory Alpha, Hal Sutherland, director of Star Trek: The Animated Series, was indirectly responsible for pink Tribbles showing up in the episode “More Tribbles, More Trouble.” Sutherland was colorblind and saw pink as a light gray. By the time others noticed the episode was full of pink Tribbles, it was too late. It kind of works; I mean, they’re cute and fluffy little creatures, why shouldn’t they be pink?

ThinkGeek honored the gaff with this pink and purring Tribble. As far as the heart headband though? I’ve got nothing.

time travel 1

When you go out of your way to visit a non-chain coffee shop, you never know what will happen. Sometimes those places have cozy furniture with drawers, and sometimes those drawers have notes from time travelers. Redditor Unlucky 13 found this at the table he was sitting at, and it’s a great example of humans being creative and awesome. The first person – Dave – left a note about about he was traveling through time and got stuck in 2013. The next person says she’s sending help, and after that – well, there’s a flux capacitor.

See the rest of the story unfold after the break.

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.

Hit the break to check out more Cumberbatchmons.

It’s a Rat Trap!

Ultimate Trap

Not surprisingly, Next Media Animation (NMA) takes the cake for the weirdest thing I’ve seen this week – and I look at a lot of bizarre things.

They made a trailer showing what could happen in Episode VII, and I don’t even know what to do with it because there are Star Wars characters, a Minnie Mouse stripper, a scary Yoda, Buzz and Woody, and then the Avengers show up. And so does McDonald’s. Uh… my head hurts.

You have to see it for yourself; watch after the break.

What else is Twitter for if not to bring you images of Hugh Jackman wearing his Wolverine claws with Psy?

I like Hugh Jackman even more. And if Gangnam Style earns you visits to movie sets like Wolverine - well, I’ve got to work on my dance moves.

Head-In-A-Hole Ostrich Pillow

Sleeping at work is frowned upon, but who says you can’t take a couple of power naps during your breaks? Apparently, 20-minute power naps can actually increase a person’s productivity by more than 30%, so sleeping on the job isn’t really such a bad thing.

Trying to get some shut-eye at work might be a bit difficult while everyone else is hustling and bustling. That’s probably why designer Kawamura Ganjavian created the Ostrich Pillow in the first place. If you recall, this crazy privacy pillow was revealed last year as a concept, but it might soon become a reality if it reaches its funding goal on Kickstarter.

It looks silly to me, but hey, if 560 backers (and counting) want it, then maybe Ganjavian is on to something. Check out the demo video after the break.

eBay Magic Potion

Apparently, eBay doesn’t want you to have your usual fill of magic spells and potions to battle the occasional warlock, because they’re instructing all sellers on the site to pull these enchanting wares off their shelves. The terms were outlined in the 2012 Fall Seller Update, which banned the sale of these magical goods, along with curses, hexing, conjuring, and healing sessions.

But here’s the good news: the changes will be enforced beginning August 30th, so you have about two weeks to stock up on your essential potions, spells, and incantations before they’re gone for good (at least on eBay.)

Finger Stand

If there’s one thing people complain about smartphones, it’s that they lack the human touch. Sure, you can use them to make calls, check your email, and send messages, but many would argue that that’s not the same as having a real, live conversation. Some folks from Japan decided to take this concern at face value and came up with their weirdest phone accessory ever, the Severed Kid’s Hand iPhone Case, last year–and now they’ve followed it up with these Finger Stands for good measure.

Despite how they look, the Finger Stands are pretty useful. You can use a combination of thumbs and index fingers to prop your phone up, hold a pack of cigarettes, and even give some the finger (albeit discreetly.) Heck, you can ever use it to pick your nose, but that would be just gross.

Check out images of the severed digits in action after the break…
