Growing up, my cousins and I played our fair share of Dungeons & Dragons. In fact, we went so hardcore geek as to make up our own game set that used similar rules.

If you thought that this Super Star destroyer was from The Force Awakens, it’s not. But if we see a Star destroyer that looks even half as cool in the movie, I’ll be happy. This custom ship model was built by Fabio Delfino and is based on the Star Wars: Dark Empire comic books.

KFC Double Down Dog Replaces Hot Dog Buns with Chicken
I’m not a huge fan of hot dogs to begin with. I look at them sort of the same way I look at fish; I might eat one once a year at most. Every now and again, I get a hankering for a Sonic foot long chili cheese, but as soon as I am done eating it, I remember why I never order one.

Animal Panties Put Wild Beasts on your Buns
I hate shopping for gifts in mall lingerie stores. There is too much lace and stuff, it’s overwhelming. Plus all the women in there look at you like you are only there to ogle them as they look at bras.
