Upon seeing it, you instantly understand the context, as well as the reason for naming an entire subreddit after it.Read More »from Ridiculous GIFs from Infomercials, Lovingly ChronicledThere are subreddits dedicated to a gigantic variety of subjects, but few contain as many user-submitted pieces of gold as r/wheredidthesodago. Infomercials exist on various spectrums. There's products that look really cool, and ones that look ridiculous. But what most if not all of them contain are moments of pure camp, a tactic that imprints itself into people's minds, and almost certainly is intentional.

Luckily for us, redditors are hard at work night and day submitting to the subreddit, and for that we can be grateful.

Check out their playdate:After playing a game of tiger tag, 6-month-old Kali got tired and lay down. Kids will be kids, no matter what mammal species they are!
The fun video reminded us of a similar scene back in 2011 when a 1-year-old named Trent visited a 400-pound lioness named Angie at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. However, instead of Angie wanting to play with Trent, it appeared that she was more interested in having him for lunch. It might have had something to do with Trent's striped sweater resembling the stripes of a zebra:

It isn't easy for someone to be optimistic in the face of cancer, but it seems as if Deborah Cohan is doing a fine job of it. Cohan is an ob-gyn in the San Francisco area, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Treatment was to be a double mastectomy, a tough procedure to come to terms with. So to add some positive vibes to the operating room, Cohan came up with the idea of having a pre-Read More »from Woman Holds Operating Room Flash Mob Before Undergoing Surgery
operation flash mob -- and the results are nothing short of inspirational.

Every year we hear about people who choose to wear inappropriate Halloween costumes. Well, for some reason, 2013 seems to be topping all other years as far as offensive costumes are concerned. You may have heard of the fury over costumes representing Trayvon Martin and Boston Marathon bombing victims, as well as criticism of celebrities like Julianne Hough for wearing blackface for her "Orange Is the New Black" attire.
