You guys should be glad that you don't have a girlfriend who keeps hitting you on your balls whenever you don't buy her that expensive branded shoes. Watch the video above.
Woman: See! What did I tell you? Why must you buy me these cheap pair of shoes?
*Smacks boyfriend on his balls.*
Man: Ouch! Sorry honey. They are on sale lah. Buy one get one free some more.
Woman: What! I told you many times! I want branded shoes not cheap ones where the heels come off easily. Next time you buy me cheap shoes, you won't have any balls left.
*Smacks boyfriend on his balls again, repeatedly.*
Update: The man in the clip is a 41 year old director of an international property company. Woman was the receptionist.
(Thanks Galen for the clip)

Yesterday, I was invited to the launch of Asia's first life-sized bread race car at Royal Plaza on Scotts. The bread car took a team that included 8 chefs from Royal Plaza on Scotts, a total of 549 hours to craft and put together. Some pics below.
Here's guest of honour Eunice Olsen looking so hot in her tiny red dress.
Nice legs, Eunice! Really nice. Heh.
5 young volunteers from Metta School were also there to lend the chefs a helping hand in putting the finishing touches to the bread car.
Too bad it doesn't come with an engine because I would really like to give it a spin! Check out more pics and a video of the amazing bread race car on Klik.TV here. You can also view it at the lobby of Royal Plaza on Scotts from now till 27 Sept.
And don't forget to buy these scale-model chocolate race cars made from fine edible chocolate when you're there. $5 from each sale will be contributed to Community Chest.

Andertoons on a series of Spiderman toys called Adventure Hero Spiderman: "Why in God's name anyone thought these toys were a good idea is beyond me. I mean, so when he finally gets some time off, Peter Parker actually puts more stuff on over his Spiderman outfit to relax?! And exactly how does fishing make him a hero?"
Mystery Science Theater 3000 is an American cult television comedy series that ran from 1988 to 1999.

Watch this video of a dude in a Bumblebee costume transforming himself into the Camaro vehicle mode. Freaking awesome! Where the hell does one buy this? I need one (with the addition of some transforming sound effects) for Halloween or else I'll go as the Invisible Man.

The way you sleep during a one night stand can say a lot about your feelings towards the situation. This one probably is telling your partner, to go ahead and just get it over and done with.
Deep in the forest lived Billy and his charming companions. They peacefully honed their bodies and listened to music there. But a wave of development came upon the forests. One who would turn all to road. Kagamine Rin had come. Billy must stop the construction before all is turned to road. Really bizarre animation. Watch the video above.
Rymdreglage spent a mind boggling 1500 hours to move Lego bricks and take photos of them for his awesome 8-bit Lego Trip stop motion video.

I had a blast at the recent Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention. It was very tiring but man, it was worth every sweat, muscle ache and weary night. I would like to thank all my friends and readers especially those of you who came down on more than one day (you know who you are) just so that you can take pics with me. You people are totally crazy! Ha! Keep it going. Also thanks to those who supported Klik.TV's debut which turned out to be quite a success! Once again from the bottom of my heart, thank you all! Oh and here's a very big Klik thank you from the Klik.TV team.

Lileks has a website devoted to ads in old comics. He writes: "The ads bring back more memories than the comics themselves. I can’t tell you what the Kingpin said to Spidey before he knocked him across the room, but I remember the grainy pictures of the kids who sold seeds, the promise of 150 Army Men, the Polaris sub, etc."
During his lifetime, Kawasaki Kyosen painted over 5000 still-life images of antique toys and folk crafts from across Japan, including a few watercolour octopus-themed paintings like this one, a dancing octopus papier-mache doll from Kameido Tenjin Shrine, Tokyo.
