Tiny Piglets Take Over The Runway At Toronto Fashion Week

Tiny Piglets Take Over The Runway At Toronto Fashion Week

If there’s three things we love, it’s adorable animals, runway gimmicks and tiny versions of regular things. During Toronto Fashion Week, they collided at the Korhani fashion show as several models came down the runway toting precious micropiglets. Sadly, in addition to being cute, pigs are also extremely intelligent and sensitive, so carrying them down a runway to deafening Soft Cell while hundreds of people cheer is probably the most terrifying thing imaginable for them. Also, the micropig industry is fucked up. So! Here is a slideshow of the Korhani runway accompanied by ominous facts about pig keeping from this government issued pamphlet of Guidance on the Legal Obligations of Pig Keepers. Fun fact: you can’t bury dead ones! More »

Gallery: Funny Pictures Of People Who've Switched Clothes With Each Other

Have you ever looked at two people sitting next to each other on the subway and wondered what it would look like if they switched clothes with each other and then went back to sitting casually in the exact same positions as before? No? Well, my weird friends and I have, which is why we were so stoked to find out that a Vancouver artist named Hana Pesut has made a project of visually answering that question.

What Was Up With That Anti-Humane Society Ad That Ran During The Oscars?

Isn’t The Humane Society pretty well-regarded for their work helping adorable animals in trouble? Who hates our furry friends enough to run an ad like this, and furthermore, has the money to do so during the Oscars? More »

Gallery: Jenny Slate Cutes It Up In Bass Hearts Rachel Antonoff's Spring Lookbook

Comedienne Jenny Slate is pretty much a professional cuteness incubator at this point. Her comedic persona is a delightful mixture of cuteness and raunch (without the grating try-hardy-ness of Sarah Silverman), and her much discussed animated short Marcel The Shell With Shoes On pretty much shot her into the cuteness stratosphere. It comes as no surprise, then, that Bass Hearts Rachel Antonoff (a collaboration, yes, between Bass and Rachel Antonoff) would tap her to put their shoes on for their spring 2012 lookbook. I dare you to feel anything but childlike whimsy towards these photos. More »
