Thousands of 'penis fish' appear on California beach
Fat innkeeper worms typically burrow under the sand but recent storms have swept away layers, leaving them exposed


Apparently seagulls like them so men better be careful when changing on the beach.
So the next time you bury your toes in the sand, think about what throbs beneath the surface.

It's probably NSFW due to a curse word, but guess it depends on your workplace, discretion is advised if you can't handle a curse word.

I bet there's tons of people who wished they had the courage to do that!

I mean, it's not like the thing we all know it looks like is exactly winning any design awards either.

The functionality of the product is ok, but the art department let the side down.

It was definitely designed by an intern who left it to the last minute.

I always loved Billy Connoly's bit about the scrotum. Something along the lines of 'just put them in some left over elbow skin and be done with it'

We're united in our grotesqueness, us humans.

Small things make me happy lately. I have a 15 year old sleep number bed. The remote has been on the blink for 5 years due to being dropped etc. A new remote is $50. I visited the local store yestewday and the nice lady went out back and returned with a box of old remotes (like you probably have at home) & gave me one that looked right for free. Was not compatible but I put the old pcb in the new casing an its good as new!
Also, I recently bought a Roomba and now have no idea how I lived without it before

Do you have a cat, if not get one, a Roomba only looks right if there is a cat sat on it as it cleans.

What a nice lady to do that for you. Finding happiness in the small things is the way to go, if we wait for big things it's a long time between happies

I have a cat!

Ergo, I need a Roomba. Why can't these animals hang onto their fur

So far the cat hides from roomba, but in time I hope they will bond😀
