Rent Enterprise Car At Twice The Rate, Get Free Dentures (Check Under Floormat)

Rent Enterprise Car At Twice The Rate, Get Free Dentures (Check Under Floormat)

Timothy rented a car from Enterprise last month when he flew into Newark Airport in New Jersey, and he was forced to pay almost twice the amount quoted in his reservation because of problems with a coupon code and an uncooperative manager. But there’s good news: the rental came with a special, stinky surprise that he and his wife didn’t find until the second day of the rental. (Warning: there’s a big close-up photo below.) [More]

It's June, Time For Hobby Lobby To Kick Off The Christmas Creep Season

It's June, Time For Hobby Lobby To Kick Off The Christmas Creep Season

People, it’s June! Why is Hobby Lobby selling Christmas wreaths?! Two years ago Hobby Lobby rolled out the trees in August. Last year they decked the halls in July. We’re going to celebrate Christmas all through 2015 at this rate. Seriously Hobby Lobby, call us if you ever decide to throw one of those “We’ve Gone Crazy!” sales. We’ll totally vouch for you. Hit the jump for some unreasonably unseasonal pictures. [More]

There Aren't Any Jobs Because These Five People Work Everywhere

There Aren't Any Jobs Because These Five People Work Everywhere

There’s a funny post at the blog Fair Trade Photographer about cheap stock photography, particularly how companies who try to cut corners end up using the same image over and over. Barton has a serious message for companies, too: if you want us to trust you, maybe you shouldn’t put a generic stock photo of generic office people on your generic website. [More]

UPS Guy Outwits Thieves With Clever Hiding Place

UPS Guy Outwits Thieves With Clever Hiding Place

Sometimes a reader writes in to complain about how the UPS guy left a package in full view of anyone passing by. Not Nick, who was at work yesterday when he saw that UPS had delivered his shipment from from Amazon. Usually the delivery guy hides packages in Nick’s bushes, but this time the notice said, “FD MAT.” Nick writes, “That worried me a bit, as this is a pricey piece of electronic equipment. But my worry was misplaced; the clever UPS man hid this package extremely well.” [More]

Photo: This ATM Wants To Eat Your Hand

We’ve heard all manner of complaints about ATMs over the years. From ATM skimming to usurious fees to ponzi schemes, we thought we’d seen it all. Until Consumerist reader Jen sent in this photo of an ATM… that has a thirst for your blood. [More]

Walmart Won't Let Family Print Photos Of Dead Relative For Funeral

Walmart Won't Let Family Print Photos Of Dead Relative For Funeral

After the death of a relative, Mike put together a photo tribute for the funeral, in order to “remember the good times,” he says. Only a Walmart cashier put a stop to his purchase. Here’s what happened. Do you think Walmart was in the right?

A Visual Primer On Airplane Etiquette

A Visual Primer On Airplane Etiquette

Here are 14 photo illustrations from Australia of jerk-like behavior on airplanes, for those of you who aren’t creeped out by the weird “lets use clones” art direction of the piece. The weirdest tip is that it’s apparently okay to kick your fellow passenger in the crotch if you’re certain you can do it without waking him up, but hey, that’s Australia for you.

7 Toys You Probably Shouldn't Buy

7 Toys You Probably Shouldn't Buy

Look, we’re not going to sit here and pretend to know a lot about parenting. But unless Ambras syndrome runs in your family, we can’t imagine why you need to teach your 7-year-old how to shave a baby. The toy tattoo gun actually looks like a lot of fun, though.

New Subway Gamepieces Exist Outside Of Normal Time

New Subway Gamepieces Exist Outside Of Normal Time

Justin sent us this gamepiece he scraped like a wet scab off the side of his moist Subway beverage cup. (I do not like gamepieces affixed to fast food drinks.) We’re in awe at its nearly k?an-like phrasing. How is an instant win not an instant winner? How do you peel the gamepiece that has already been peeled? Feel free to use these in your meditations.

When Billboards Collide

When Billboards Collide

It’s funny when something accidental happens in advertising, like when billboards that shouldn’t be next to each other are put up. We always suspected the placement of religious billboards are intentional, but we’re really not sure about Cat Jesus. Yes, Cat Jesus.

The Huffington Post is having a “Capture The Recession” photo contest. I’d argue that their Flickr pool is nowhere near as cool as ours, but it’s not shabby. Users can rate the pictures and choose the most recession-riffic. [Huffington Post]

Dallas writes, “Hey, I just saw this ad in on a local newspaper website. Glamour shots has apparently ‘changed.’ I guess they think there might be a market for people who will pay for nudie pics of themselves.”

It's Time To Start Shopping For Christmas Decorations! Oh, Wait…

There’s no better way to show your support for the war on Christmas Creep than to strap a bottle rocket to a reindeer ornament, or maybe point a Roman candle at a Santa lawn figure. Now you can do just that, by combining all the explosive fury of July 4th with the heartwarming frivolity of Christmas, thanks to Tuesday Morning.
