The folks at Cracked.com have done the research, and it turns out that some of your favorite songs - the ones that you thought were filled with deep, meaningful lyrics - were just written as jokes. We're talking Nirvana. We're talking Quiet Riot. And we're talking about two of the bands that will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

Here's a cool list of real punctuation marks that are very seldom used. Some you probably knew...

Yep. Paragraph time. AKA the Pilcrow.

Others have names that sound like freaky fetish porn...

The Interrobang.

And then there's the one that NEEDS to be on every keyboard and phone: the snark. Used when there's sarcasm or irony involved. Which is just about every text message your teenager sends.

Now good luck figuring out how to actually type any of those in.

There are many uses for beer. Drinking it. Chugging it. Doing kegstands with it. But one artist has missed the point of beer entirely by deciding to paint with it.

Check out more of Karen Eland's art here to see how she wastes uses beer to make art.


Admittedly, this does look better than what I end up with after a night of consuming beer.

Liquid Television, the half-hour smorgasbord of odd animation that ran on MTV in the mid-90's is back! At least online. Yes, the show that spawned Beavis & Butthead, Aeon Flux, Speedbump the Roadkill Possum, Plymptoons, Winter Steele, Invisible Hands, and more strange stuff than I'll ever understand.

You can check out classic Liquid Television segments here, or explore the site for additional MTV animation stuff like "The Maxx" and "Celebrity Deathmatch."

Yesterday, I found a Star Wars Gingerbread AT-AT, perfect for the holidays. Today, however I've got a different AT-AT that's good for any day of the year... especially on Fridays for the Liquid Lunch. It's a wooden AT-AT liquor cabinet. Click here for more on this awesome item.

Wait, pink doesn't exist? What does that mean for the Dark Side of the Moon? What color should John Mellencamp's houses be? And what's Steven Tyler's favorite crayon going to be now??

It's time to play the music. It's time to light the lights. It's time to meet the Muppets on the Oscars Show tonight!

There's a Facebook page that's been pushing to get the Muppets to host the Oscars in 2012, and I must say that I can't get enough of the idea.

Imagine it... Kermit is your primary MC for the night with Scooter as producer. Fozzie does some bad stand up to kick off the night. Gonzo does crazy stunts to make the ceremonies more exciting (and to impress his chicken, Camilla). Miss Piggy will expect a Best Actress Oscar ("For moi?"), but Kermit has to break it to her that she's not nominated (I assume some karate-chopping follows). Instead of the stuffy orchestra, you get Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem as the house band for the night.  Sam the Eagle can be there to make sure it's a wholesome, All-American show. Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker can present the technical awards. Crazy Harry can present a montage of all the stuff that blew up in movies this year. The Swedish Chef can cater the entire event. And Statler and Waldorf would comment on all of it from the balcony.

Honestly, I could watch that every single year.

Click here to vote in the Hasbro fans' choice poll to determine which Star Wars character will be the next action figure.

Admittedly, a lot of the characters are from the extended universe or are third-rate side characters that you probably didn't even notice the first time you watched any of the movies. But still, pretty cool that you can vote.

BTW - I voted for Emperor Palpatine in his throne from Return of the Jedi, just so you can use the line, "Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL battle station!"

Want to calm your stomach after a night of binge drinking? Try strawberries! European researchers have proved that the damage to the stomach lining caused by drinking alcohol can be reduced by eating strawberries. Check out the whole article here.

I can't tell you how many times I've been at a social event and said to myself, "if only I had a giant purse filled with wine!"

Well, now that can be a reality with the (terribly named) Baggy Winecoat. Essentially you buy a box of wine, remove the bag of wine from said box and hide it in this purse that has its own little tapper on it.

Start your Christmas shopping off early and get one for yourself here. Then do the rest of your Christmas shopping with a zinfandel buzz on.

With not one but two new Hobbit movies on the way, it's cool to look back at some of the original visions of author J.R.R. Tolkien as he was creating the iconic novel. Click here to check out a few of Tolkien's drawings, watercolors, and sketches.
