Hexcups Change the Game of Beer Pong Forever

Hexcups Change the Game of Beer Pong Forever
Here is the Beer Pong upgrade that you didn’t know you needed. Think of it as a structural engineering improvement for the game. Hexcups are way better than regular beer cups.

Birds in the Buff with Weapons: Armed Avians
Look at these images. They are so weird. They are birds with human-like butts and toes with guns. It looks like some sort of deranged FPS lost its main characters.

Ninja Bib Keeps Babies Clean and Deadly
When my son was a baby, he was the messiest eater on the planet.
