Welcome to Dismaland, the latest exhibition from Banksy, the art world’s favorite agent provocateur. Billed as a “bemusement park” and modeled after Disneyland, it’s a warped vision of the so-called “happiest place on Earth”. Officially opening to the public on Saturday, August 22 (it’s open to locals only tomorrow), it’s Banksy’s largest exhibition to date and the 4000 allotted daily tickets, priced at less than $5, are expected to sell out fast.

Would you like to go to Banksy’s new theme park?

Everyone loves Bacon – Kevin Bacon demands more Nudity

Kevin Bacon demands more male nudity in Hollywood

Kevin Bacon has a bone to pick with you, Hollywood. Male actors are rarely given the opportunity to be gratuitously naked, and it’s not fair. 

But that’s all going to change now with the #FreeTheBacon movement. 

Motivation Monday- If Special Olympics Athlete Chevi Peters can do it, then you can too!!!

Not expected to live past the age of 2, Special Olympics world champion powerlifter Chevi Peters has found his true strength.

According to ESPN, here once was this 90-pound weakling with scars on top of his scars. Liver transplant, kidney transplant, strokes, brain surgery — you name it, he’d been in the O.R. for it. He always told people he was a jock underneath it all, but at 5-foot-2 with no discernible muscle, nobody ever took him seriously. In his dreams, he was a firefighter, a ladies’ man, a halfback, an Adonis. But those dreams couldn’t possibly come true, not when he was stiff-legged, the butt of jokes. Odds were that he’d never see the world, that he’d end up right where he started: as a wisp of a man in a mile-long southeast Kansas town.

Chevi Peters tried all his life not to succumb to the hopelessness. Along with bagging ice at the local convenience store, that was his job — to laugh everything off, to hang in, hang in, hang in. In other words, he had to flip the switch. Even if he felt weak because of his 38 operations or inadequate because of his crooked teeth or melancholy because of his parents’ divorce, he decided he could never show it. Flipping the switch meant smiling when he felt lonely or people-pleasing when he felt ostracized. He pulled this off for 20-something years — a minor miracle — until, one August night in 2008, he climbed into his car and decided to drive it into oncoming traffic.

Epic Fail of the Week – This is what happens when you park in the Handicap spot when you’re not Handicapped

That’s what happens when you park in a handicap spot in Brazil –

Canal BOOM decided to address the issue of handicap parking abuse with a light-hearted prank and covered one illegally parked car with a bunch of Post-It notes.

Do you think it was a great idea to teach the abusive park a lesson? What would you’ve done if you were the guy getting pranked?
