Admiral Ackbar Mouse Trap: IT’S A TRAP!!
Admiral Ackbar wasn’t exactly a big character in the Star Wars films. We only remember him because of his fish-like features and his famous “It’s A Trap!” line in Return of the Jedi. Ackbar has found new life on the web as a meme, and some geek genius has burnt his face onto an actual trap.

Mr. Pointy Plush Only Slays Stuffed Vampires
Back in the day, I watched a few episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, mostly because Buffy was smoking hot. I’m sure more than a few guys watched the show for the same reasons. I’m no Buffy aficionado mind you, but I do remember her stabbing lots of vampires with a pointy stick.

New Wii U GamePad Leaked in Mario Kart 8 Commercial? [Rumor]
The dad in a new Mario Kart 8 Japanese commercial must have been a really good boy this year, because it looks like Santa gave him a new Wii U GamePad. It’s only on the screen for a few seconds – most of them blurry shots – but it looks different all right.

Jurassic Hannukah: MenorasaurusRex
The menorah that you use during Hannukah says a lot about you. Do you use a traditional menorah or something different? Why not start a new tradition and use a Menorah Rex. You can pass this fun holiday decoration down generation after generation.
