The latest online fad might surprise you. But then again, it might not.

Sexy dancing in public utilizing a telephone pole is the newest, coolest online craze.

Surpassing even the worldwide planking phenomenon in popularity, telephone pole dancing videos are being uploaded to the internet at an astonishing pace.

Bored hipsters, wannabe celebrities, uber-nerds, imitative dullards and impressionable youth are donning their sexiest garb, then locating the nearest telephone pole. (Should you participate in this fad make certain you avoid wood telephone poles. Splinters can hurt. Especially those you’re apt to get while pole dancing.)

Madly gyrating around a telephone pole, telephone pole dancers while dancing are checking their telephones for videos of the latest telephone pole dancers. They’re hoping passersby with telephones (the type that do not require a pole) have uploaded a video of them doing their profound pole dance. Because millions will likely watch that video with awe.

A huge load of awesome gag gifts.

Wow--the perfect gift for a stoner.
Wow–the perfect gift for a stoner.

Thinking about a loved one’s upcoming birthday? Don’t know what sort of present to give? How about a gag gift? Get a guaranteed laugh or groan or ugly stare. Liven up the party!

Pranks and practical jokes are always appreciated. Well…at least they are appreciated once in a while. So you need to find a really weird and inappropriate gag gift such as a toy parrot that randomly squawks out loud insults, or a rude crude ass-shaped ashtray, or fart spray, or perhaps some pickle-flavored toothpaste.

Here’s a great blog with links to all sorts of awesome and creative gags.

Give these gifts at your own risk.

Extremely weird superhero antics.

Not sure what this lady's superpower is.
Not sure what this lady’s superpower is.

It’s a fact. Everyone knows that genuine comic book superheroes save the world, galaxy, and/or universe every month or so, and that they use their fantastic, breathtaking, mind-boggling unbelievably terrific superpowers such as wall-crawling, invisibility and the ability to eat all forms of matter to explode a nerdy comic book reader’s brains and absorb the bloody remains into a vortex of nifty neato nirvana with complete ease.

But did you know the world’s greatest heroes can surf while standing on their heads?

Or that Superman’s powers include being a hip, groovy, cool cat? And the super duper ability to split himself into two pieces?

Yes, it’s true. Your favorite superhero is probably more special than even you imagined. Check out their nutty weird-ass powers and their hilariously superheroic antics at this awesomely funny website.

A real motel for hobbits.

Nice view.
Nice view.

Are you short of stature and good-natured? Do you enjoy lots of food, lots of drink and good company? Do you have hairy feet? Do you like to live in a hole in the ground?

Well, if you’re travelling in New Zealand you’ll probably want to check into The Hobbit Motel. Seriously!

The Hobbit Motel is fashioned to look like Bilbo’s and Frodo’s hobbit hole in Hobbiton in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. And the ceilings and doorways are appropriately sized! If you’re one of the big people, you might have to duck a bit. If you’re a tall specimen of the big people, perhaps you’ll have to crawl on all fours. But what fun!

Klingon beauty contest!

The winner last year.

Who needs Sports Illustrated? I was able to locate the Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant website so that I could ogle tantalizing pics of ravishing Klingon beauties from years past. Aren’t these ladies simply stunning? Makes you wanna hitch a ride on the next starship to the Neutral Zone.

Okay, all you trekkers, trekkies, trek-heads, and wanna-be Klingons, Vulcans, Romulans and Tribbles, don’t get too excited. Worf informs me he’ll battle you to the death on the holodeck if you so much as glance at one of these proud female Klingon warriors with disrespect.

Get some real x-ray glasses!

I'm sure this is what you'll be looking at.
I’m sure this is what you’d love looking at.

My inner nerd is really excited now!

Check out these actual, real, honest-to-goodness x-ray specs! Not those phony things with swirled lenses you’d buy from the back page of a comic book. The real thing! Hooray for science!

Funny–even the geeky scientists who invented this can’t help mentioning on their web page how they can barely see through bikinis. I guess human nature is just like a scientific and mathematical constant…constant!
