Skeleton Dress by Elsa Schiaparelli and Salvador Dali, 1938

The influence of the surrealist art movement is evident in the collaborative work of Elsa Schiaparelli and Salvador Dali, one clear example being the Skeleton Dress from Schiaparelli’s Circus Collection 1938. Not only did the Skeleton Dress comment on the Surrealist idea of offering the public a new way of looking at the world and creating a way to escape from reality, but by utilizing their blend of strange and eccentric ideas, Schiaparelli and Dali helped to create a new movement in ‘wearable art’ which has been adopted by modern designers and music icons, most influential being pop music icon Lady Gaga. <source>

i changed my okcupid profile to say “you should message me if you know any good jokes about giraffes” and someone responded “you, a baby, and a giraffe walked into a bar, and then you walked out with me! ;) ;)” and i’m so angry because that doesn’t even make sense, there is ZERO adherence to structural joke norms, why the fuck is the baby there? did we leave the baby at the bar? jesus christ, did we fucking leave the baby with the fucking giraffe, that is NOT RESPONSIBLE

Funny medieval doodles

With their wild hair and frantic gaze, these doodled men look like fools. They are waving as if to seek contact with the reader. The thing is, the reader is busy singing and listening to a sermon. That is because these 800-year-old images are found in a Missal, a book used during Holy Mass. What a shock it must have been for the serious user of the book, to flip the page and suddenly find yourself face to face with these funny creatures. And what a great contrast: a serious book with silly drawings.

the stupidest thing in the entire harry potter series was when they go down to the slytherin dormitory and it’s all dark and slimy and freezing and shit. as if lucius malfoy would let his son live in squalor like that. the house with the highest concentration of spoiled purebloods are happy to live under the goddamn lake? no.

wow this is the #1 best harry potter criticism i have ever read
