Things you can do when you're drunk


Toddlers get to break all the rules. They can walk around the house with only socks on, bite their own toenails, smash cupcakes into their mouth hole with complete disregard for self-respect… you know, the standard stuff. In this video, Tripp and Tyler go the extra mile to make it clear that toddlers are just tiny badasses that dgaf.

Of course, you could pull all that sh*t off if you were totally wasted too.


Meet Spider-Dad


There’s been a lot of superhero dad action as of late.

There’s this solider who came home to surprise his son dressed as Spider-Man, the always fun-loving BatDad, Lambo BatDad pulled over on the way to a children’s hospital, YABD (yet another BatDad) with BatKid who saved San Francisco that one time, this TrollDad who stood outside on his doorstep every morning for a year waving to his son’s bus, and the ever so popular I know a good dad when I see one dad.

Now, those are just a few of the dads out there that are sharing some superhero awesomeness with their kids. So what could possibly tingle our Spidey-Sense again?



Here’s a little video of Benjamin Ames and his daughter singing a song on camera. The idea was to keep her mind preoccupied one night after hearing fireworks so she could go to sleep which turned into father/daughter cuteness overload.

“In the end, nothing competes with fireworks.”

The YouTube description goes on to read, “(To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email”

In the end, nothing competes with the sale of a cute viral video.

All about the Benjamin. Well played, Ames. Well played.
