2012 was a fantastic year for pranks. Remember that awesomely sassy 'Psh' joke or the adorable Mistletoe setup? We'll say it til we're blue in the face-- we love pranks! They just make life a tad bit more interesting. Now that 2013 has rolled around, we think there's no better way to welcome the year than by bringing you a whole new set of hilarious shenanigans.
Snow is one of the greatest inventions of good ol' Mother Nature. Sure it can be a pain sometimes, but the stuff is also really cool! Take making awesome snowmen, for example. Can you do that with rain? Wind? Sunshine? No, because snow rules.
We like to think man is a talented species. For starters, we're capable of eating Denny's entire 'Hobbit' menu in 19 minutes flat and dominating in ping pong sans arms. There's no better male ego boost than to reminisce over such accomplishments. It turns out our hairy ancestors are talented too.
The hourly countdown to 2013 has officially begun, which means New Year's Eve preparations are in full swing. We're practicing our photobombing techniques, cranking up the tunes and bejeweling jean shorts, among other things. December 31st is the party of all parties, after all!
It's hard to believe the holidays have come and gone in a matter of weeks, which means all of a sudden our "binge eating" is going to be frowned upon. It also means it's time to think about taking down our festive decorations. This can be a bummer not only because it's like getting rid of all seasonal cheer, but we also haven't the slightest idea how to get rid of our Christmas trees. Luckily, we've discovered a step-by-step instructional guide that walks us through this process in a painless manner.
Santa's elves are the greatest. For starters, they work super hard in his workshop all year round making our Christmas presents and baking delicious treats so Santa maintains that cookie belly. However, we do think these charming people are highly underrated. They're arguably the most charming part of Christmas, after all! That's why we think it's important to pay homage to the little guys and girls through one of our favorite combos of all-time: babies and costumes.
There are two awesome things from the '90s that always top our list of decade favorites: 'Full House' and MC Hammer pants. While it might be a little embarrassing to admit the latter, we're still huge fans of the family show, and we totally wish they'd go 'Boy Meets World' on us and produce a 'Full House' sequel.
Meteorologists have one of the coolest jobs around. Think about it-- they can totally get away with taking on weather 'Gangnam Style' and no one bats an eyelash over it. Al Roker can also do a weird mannequin impression mid-broadcast, and it's completely acceptable. (Although that was really, really strange...) That's why we're not surprised that one of actress Scarlett Johansson's dreams is to read the weather in classic Roker style.
Pets are the best. They cheer us up when we're feeling blue, let us dress them in super embarrassing costumes and help us in our chemistry lesson struggles. That's why we love it when we come across awesome videos like this one that further prove our point.
If you know anything about us here at TheFW, it's that we love a good, harmless prank. Cell phone crashing and embarrassing people with talking elevators are just a couple we particularly fancy. Basically, we'd like to think of ourselves as joking experts. So when we recently came across a prank we've never before encountered, we took a humble blow to our humor egos and laughed our pants off.
Ever since news broke that Disney purchased Lucasfilm, AKA the 'Star Wars' franchise, tons of Disney-meets-Star-Wars art has hit the net. It's not only really cool, the art also helps us to picture what it'll be like when the sci-fi franchise is immersed in cartoon land.
