8 Examples of Witty Knitting
If you can imagine it, you... well, maybe not you, but someone can knit it! Thanks to the internet, we can enjoy the creations of knitters who take a common craft and elevate it to an art form.

27 Funny, Random, And Bizarre Things People Have Bought Online While Drunk
From cat tents to dinosaur bones, and even true love, it turns out we order some really bizarre items when drunk... "One Saturday night I decided that instead of going to church in the morning I would order a package of 1,000 communion wafers online."

Thieves steal six woolly hats in first island robbery in 50 years
The island in the far west of the Small Isles has fewer than 30 residents, no police station or village hall and usually enjoys a crime rate of zero. The Community Shop was previously left unlocked. Most upsetting for [manager] Julie was that they stole six of her hand-knitted Canna wool hats which were in the shop on a sale or return basis.

Books as you've never seen them before
To create new art, Brian Dettmer trashes old books. The painter-turned-sculptor takes outdated reference materials such as textbooks and encyclopedias, seals them with varnish, then carves away at their pages with an X-Acto knife. Dettmer knifes through books swiftly from cover to cover to reveal images that explore our relationship to information. He adds no color or text; it's all what he calls "a subtractive sculptural process."

Bullied Teen Designs Her Own Prom Dress And Becomes Prom Queen
18-year-old Kyemah McEntyre designed a prom dress that is anything but typical. The New Jersey resident, inspired by her African heritage, had a local seamstress from Markell's Closet hand-sew the dress from McEntyre's sketch. McEntyre was chosen to be prom queen, and this fall she will be attending the Parsons School of Design.

Teen buys crop top on Amazon, mom reviews it with help from cat
When her 16-year-old daughter bought a crocheted crop top on Amazon, Christy, who goes by the username sb043 on the site, posted a scathing review for the summery garment."I probably couldn't legally post a picture of what it looks like if she attempts to wear it...To be fair, it does cover all of the cats nipples, however, she hates the weave," Christy writes in her review. At least she is fair.
