Jordan Stratton or something you find in dirty diaper. We aren't sure.

Jordan Stratton

Jordan is one of those guys in his late 20s with a master's degree and no idea what he wants to do with his life. He eats an unhealthy amount of cereal, spends an irrational amount of time on the internet, and somehow swindled his way into a marriage with a beautiful wife who puts up with far too much nonsense. He would be delighted if you followed him on Twitter.

Ex-NASA Engineer Makes Glitter Bomb Fart Trap for Porch Thieves

(YouTube/Mark Rober)

Mark Rober is a tinkerer and a problem-solver.

So when local thieves began swiping packages off his front porch, he did what any former NASA engineer would do: He disguised an exploding glitter booby trap in a decoy Apple HomePod box and attached cameras to record it in action.

This wasn’t an overnight project by any means. The design and production process took six months with several different camera configurations and glitter dispersal methods.

The final product included four cell phones with wide-angled cameras, a custom circuit board to activate and power the devices, GPS, and a special 3D-printed box to effectively house everything.

Oh, and did we mention the fart spray? Yeah, if the cloud of glitter doesn’t make the thieves rethink their life choices, the room-clearing fart scent this bad boy expels definitely will.

Rober’s YouTube video reviews the impressive design process, but the real highlight is witnessing the reactions of various package pilferers who thought Rober’s house would make for an easy payday.

If you want to skip right to the trap unloading on multiple “victims” we’ve cued the lengthy video to the good part:

However, the entire process is pretty fascinating – if you have the time, it’s well worth a full watch below.

Santa Snuggles With His #1 Fan: A Great-Grandmother With Dementia

Santa Claus is a pretty popular guy this time of year. Between his personal army of toy-making elves and that belly like a bowlful of jelly, it’s hard to not like the guy.

However, few people appreciate the big, jolly elf like Karen of Albuquerque, NM.

Recently, Karen arrived with her family for a Santa photo shoot with The Hartsocks’ Photography. Currently, in the late stages of dementia, the mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother doesn’t always know where she is or with whom she is speaking, but she never forgets Santa.

Karen has visited malls for years to visit the big guy, even when she was an adult living by herself. Despite not being much of a talker anymore, she has a Santa doll that she sleeps with and occasionally speaks to in Japanese.

(Facebook/The Hartsocks' Photography)

As a special Christmas gift, Karen’s family brought her to see Santa in the Hartsocks’ studio. Provided with some of her backstory beforehand, the big guy gifted her with a personalized handmade ‘Busy Blanket’ and, as a result, she opened right up to him.

She reminded him about all the times she had visited him before and how much she loves him. Any time he drew near her, she would snuggle up to him and close her eyes, savoring the special moment with St. Nick.

There wasn’t a dry eye in the studio. Even Santa, who held it together for the duration of the shoot, let the tears flow after Karen left.

(Facebook/The Hartsocks' Photography)

The Hartsocks couldn’t have been happier to provide such a wonderful opportunity to Karen and her family.

“We are very grateful they trusted us with someone so perfect and precious (and for allowing us to share her with you)! Karen is so special. She is so loved. And no matter how much time passes, she will always be Santa’s #1 girl. This is truly what the magic of Christmas and the spirit of Santa is all about.”

This Family’s Yearly ‘Real Life’ Christmas Cards Are Spectacular

(Reddit/u/kakalacky_guy)

Despite allegedly being all about joy, family, and an abundance of fuzzy feelings, Christmas can be a very stressful time of year

Between wrangling heaps of presents for everyone, making sure your house exudes just the right amount of holiday cheer, and trying not to go too far into soul-crushing debt, people are lucky not to be completely exhausted or insane by New Years.

Fortunately, in the midst of all the picture-perfect Christmas updates going around, the Stanleys of Charlotte, North Carolina are sending out photos that feature a bit more holiday realism.

Since 2014, the family has been sending Christmas Cards that highlight the true (and often very stressful) joys of Christmas spent with two young boys. They even added a baby girl to the mix this year!

(Reddit/u/kakalacky_guy)

“The very first time we tried to take a ‘traditional’ Christmas card photo we had hilariously bad results,” Jonathan Stanley told Bored Panda.

“We were new parents with a one-year-old and everything went wrong – baby cried the whole time, it was windy, the lighting kept changing, you name it. If two of us looked okay, the third one blinked. We laughed so hard at how bad the photos were that we decided just to send them out as is and our family loved it. From there the tradition was born – instead of trying to send perfect cards, we would send something that represented the chaos of parenting.”

(Reddit/u/kakalacky_guy)

“At first, I think my wife kind of rolled her eyes and said, ‘okay, we’ll try it,'” he said. “I had no idea if a staged scene would make sense or be funny, but we went for it and it just kind of worked. The kids love it, though when they see the final product I have to constantly remind them that it’s fake and to not try it in real life. I worry sometimes I am putting ideas into their heads!”

(Reddit/u/kakalacky_guy)

Jonathan says his goal is to make it look like it’s a perfect Christmas scenario, “as if it’s a Pottery Barn ad or something,” that has gone horribly awry.

“I also take care to make sure its a realistic as possible – most of the scene is shot practically and I try to minimize the photoshop required to yield the best results. Today most people have a strong eye for recognizing when something is fake, so the goal is to make it just real enough that they question how we pulled it off.”

(Reddit/u/kakalacky_guy)

“The hardest part is getting the kids to look in the right place and hold the right pose – especially when they were younger,” Jonathan added. “We use a lot of tricks like putting bells on a pole and then holding it where their eyeline needs to be, etc.

“Also, ensuring they don’t bump the tripod while we are shooting – easier said than done when you have two boys running around for an hour. We shoot each kid individually and then stitch it all together…but if the tripod gets bumped it ruins the effect and we have to start over.”

(Reddit/u/kakalacky_guy)

Obviously, the Stanleys have built quite a reputation at this point.

“Our friends and family would be so disappointed if we went back to a normal card at this point. It’s also a great creative outlet and once the kids are a little older it will open up some crazy possibilities that aren’t feasible with a four-year-old and a baby.”

“I think deep down everyone hates trying to get a photograph for a Christmas card,” he admits. “It’s near impossible if you have young children – so people appreciate a card that emphasizes the challenges of parenting vs. hiding them. Plus a lot of people seem to appreciate that the cards are a fun thing we do together as a family. After all, the family that plays together stays together!

Emotional Harold Baines Remembers His Dad at Hall of Fame Induction [WATCH]

(Getty/Ron Vesely)

Over the course of his many years playing and coaching in the MLB, Harold Baines was known as a man of few words. His focus and mindset always seemed to be on the game.

That perception changed soon after the ceremony where Baines was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

During a post-event interview, Baines was asked who would be most proud and happy about his accomplishment. Baines mentioned his family and then immediately became emotional when talking about his father who passed away three years prior.

With tears welling up in his eyes, Baines called his father “my hero.”

Speaking later with NBC’s Chuck Garfien, he elaborated on his response and described his father’s unique relationship with baseball.

“It’s hard (to talk about him),” Baines said. “It’s very hard. I think I played the game for him because he couldn’t. He was born too early. So I always felt I played the game for him. I love the game but it didn’t mean that much to me like it did to him.

“I was fortunate enough to get drafted, and I just said, ‘I’m playing for him.'”

Like Baines, his father was not a very expressive man but his love for the game and his son was apparent.

“He didn’t show emotion,” he said. “I know he was proud.”

Fathers on Film: Will Smith Will Make You Cry [WATCH]

(Warner Bros/Columbia Pictures)

1990 was a riveting year for Will Smith. As half of the successful hip-hop duo, ‘DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’ (it was the 80s, cut him some slack), he had spent money lavishly but ended up getting in trouble with the IRS when he underpaid his income taxes. His wages were garnered and most of his assets were seized.

While teetering on the edge of bankruptcy, Smith got a phone call from NBC regarding a new sitcom they wanted to build around him: The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Ever since, Smith has been at the forefront of the Hollywood machine as both a performer and the patriarch of his own star-studded family.

Over the years, he has not only been surprisingly transparent about parenting styles and special moments of fatherhood, but he’s responsible for some of the most iconic father-son moments on the big and small screens—the first of which undoubtedly came from season 4 of Fresh Prince.

The episode “Papa’s got a brand new excuse” featured one of the most heart-wrenching sitcom scenes from the 90s when Will reacts to his deadbeat Dad, Lou, breaking a promise and leaving him alone yet again. In fact, Smith’s performance as an abandoned and angry teen was so convincing, myths arose that he had actually gone off-script, tapping into the genuine emotions the scene evoked since he had been neglected by his actual father while growing up.

Fortunately, these rumors were totally false and only add credit to the stunning performance. Smith’s father was actually a strong influence and participant in his son’s life, encouraging him to pursue his dreams and passions at an early age.

Smith said in an interview with Reader’s Digest:

“I told my parents I wanted to rap. They said, ‘Rap?’ My mother graduated from Carnegie Mellon. She thought college was the only way. My father could kind of see doing something differently. We agreed that I would take a year making music, and if it did not work out, I would go to college. That year we won the first Grammy given to a rap artist.”

Smith’s father remained close throughout his life and career until his passing in 2016; though, Smith emphasized on Ellen about the incredible influence he played up to the very end—teaching his son firsthand about loss and loving someone through the mourning.

At the other end of the spectrum, Smith has shown audiences amazing fatherhood qualities, the most notable of which probably being his portrayal of Chris Gardner in The Pursuit of Happyness.

The biopic follows a brilliant father struggling through a year of homelessness and taking any opportunity necessary, not only to achieve a stable career for himself, but to provide for his son (played by Smith’s actual son, Jaden).

Smith’s role as Gardner strikes an immensely emotional chord, acknowledging the desire within all of us to be recognized for who we are and provide for those we love.

Similarly, in this age of social media, Smith has repeatedly been open about his lifelong desire to connect with and prioritize his actual children.

A few weeks ago, he logged in to Facebook to share a raw parenting moment regarding his eldest son, Trey. Their relationship has not always been an easy one. Smith’s divorce from Trey’s mother left a rift that took years of work to repair. He felt betrayed and abandoned.

Smith, however, has continued to pursue his son, resolved to become the father that Trey deserves.

Fatherhood looks different to everyone. Depending on what one sees on TV, film, or most of all, in one’s relationship with their own father, expectations always fluctuate.

From Will Smith’s onscreen performances to his role as an actual father, the good and not-so-good examples of fatherhood are obvious. However, in all of these instances, it’s evident that priceless lessons are being learned.

Whether it’s a son promising to be better than his deadbeat dad or a father coming to terms with his own shortcomings, Smith continually exemplifies the search for redemption and growth when it comes to fatherhood, which is all anyone can really ask for.

7 Brothers Team up With Kellogg’s to Turn Corn Flakes Into Craft Beer

(Seven Bro7hers Brewery)

I’m going to come right out and say it:

Beer is good.

Yeah, I know — real shocker.

But do you know what’s equally good? Nay, possibly even better? Cereal.

Yes, cereal. It’s as delicious as it is easy to make, can (and should) be eaten at any time of day, and, frankly, still makes me a little giddy when I roll my shopping cart down that colorful aisle of cartoon-covered boxes.

So how does someone elevate both beer and cereal to make them even better? How about smashing them together to make a deliciously fermented corn-flaked brew the likes of which the world has never seen?

(Seven Bro7hers Brewery)

The Kellogg Company has partnered with UK-based brewery “Seven Bro7hers” to create a beer out of rejected Corn Flakes in an effort to reduce food waste.

Using flakes from Kellogg’s Manchester factory that are either too big, too small, or overcooked to be included in their standard cereal, Seven Bro7hers has created their aptly named Throw Away IPA.

(Untappd/Stuart L)

The cereal replaces the standard wheat grain in the beer recipe and £0.10 from each can purchased is donated to food distribution charity FareShare.

“Kellogg’s is working hard to eliminate food waste in our manufacturing processes and give our consumers the wholesome products they love with minimum impact on the planet,” said Kellogg UK corporate social responsibility manager Kate Prince. “Our approach has delivered a 12.5% reduction on food waste in our UK sites this year.”

The Kellogg Company recently moved their UK headquarters to MediaCityUK, Manchester—literally one block away from Seven Bro7hers Brewery, making Corn Flake delivery a breeze.

(Seven Bro7hers Brewery)

The brewery is named after the seven McAvoy brothers—Guy, 57, Keith, 50, Luke, 45, Daniel, 44, Nathan, 42, Kit, 37, and Greg, 35—who started their business in 2014, drawing inspiration from their father’s home brewing over the years.

Not to be outdone, their sisters also created their own distillery, Four Sis4ers Gin, just this year.

Given the positive response to both their partnership with Kellogg and the beer itself, the brothers are already working on additional cereal-centric brews.

“Seven Bro7hers Brewery is delighted to be working with Kellogg’s on a project which uses edible but not-sellable cereal,” said Allison Watson of Seven Bro7hers Brewery. “We plan to create three beers including a Hoppy IPA which will be launched this month and sold in our Ancoats bar and the Dockyard, MediaCityUK.”

Hopefully, this wonderful trend only continues to grow and makes its way to brewers in the U.S. Until then, however, I’ll just have to keep pouring a nice refreshing pilsner over my Froot Loops.

Army Dad Sends Wife Hilarious “Sexy” Selfies

(Facebook/Brandon Sillings)

Meet United States Army specialist Brandon Sillings. When he isn’t on duty, Brandon loves spending time at home with his two sons and wife, Felicia, but also realizes what it takes to keep things spicy in their marriage.

(Facebook/Brandon Sillings)

Recently, when Felicia was out for the day, he decided he would rev her engine a bit by snapping some sexy pics. And, boy howdy, did he go all out…

(Facebook/Brandon Sillings)

Starting in the room where the magic happens, Brandon decided to document his time with a sexy little toy: the vacuum cleaner.

And despite what that coy expression says, he was just getting started.

(Facebook/Brandon Sillings)

Not even the snowy outdoors can cool down this pic. Do your best to take it all in while he takes out the trash.

(Bonus points for the successful duck face)

(Facebook/Brandon Sillings)

Yowza, a lip-bite like that can’t be taught, folks.

And holding a laundry basket with such brazen confidence? How ’bout you stop making the rest of us look bad, Brandon. Geez.

(Facebook/Brandon Sillings)

No need for before pictures. With two young kids, you know that sink was just brimming with cups, bowls, and grime earlier that morning. Well, not anymore!

Look carefully and you can almost see Brandon’s sultry eyebrow moves reflected in the sink’s shiny surface.

(Facebook/Brandon Sillings)

When Felicia finally checked her phone and saw the bevy of “sexy” photos from her husband, she burst out laughing.

“What is this?” she asked in response. He explained how he wanted to send her sexy pics and she immediately understood.

Brandon shared the photo series on Facebook with the caption, “Sending sexy pics to the wife like…” and it has received tons of praise. After just a few weeks, the photos have accrued over 115k thousand likes and have been shared over 400,000 times.

So, yes… it’s great when your partner finds you physically attractive after years of being together, but let Brandon be an example of what can really get a spouse all hot and bothered: good old-fashioned household chores.

Dad Dancing for Son in Viral Holiday Ad Will Warm Your Heart [WATCH]

(YouTube/BETC Paris)

Dad dance moves are infamous for being terrible. Even on the rare occurrence that a father miraculously has some sense of rhythm, the moves themselves are nearly always a total cringe-fest.

But that’s the point.

Fathers know they’re not going to be the next Michael Jackson by showing off on the dance floor (or supermarket… or coffee shop… or another embarrassingly public place). They simply love the self-conscious smile and eye roll they get from their kids as a result—that reaction, honestly, is the lifeblood for a dad.

French telecom brand Bouygues recently released a holiday ad featuring a montage of these special moments between a father and son spanning their decades-long relationship, and it is humiliating… in the most beautiful way.

If that doesn’t make you even the least bit teary-eyed, maybe get your heart checked out, Mr. Grinch.

Set to Redbone’s groovy 1973 hit “Come and Get Your Love” appropriately played from a cassette tape, the ad begins with a dad who simply loves connecting with his baby son. In just about the daddest outfit of all (button-down shirt, boxers, and tube socks), he hip shimmies his way past the Christmas tree across the room to the delight of his little infant boy.

(YouTube/BETC Paris)

In an instant, we’re thrown a few years down the road to childhood. Dad breaks it down on a snowy sidewalk outside of a toy store and son gleefully obliges him by joining in, old enough to realize what his father is doing is a little quirky but, hey, little boys love quirky!

(YouTube/BETC Paris)
(YouTube/BETC Paris)

Then it’s knee-deep into the teen years when it’s hard to tell where a parents’ silliness will fall on a kid’s spectrum of acceptability.

Riding in the car with his groove-tastic dad, it’s clear that the charm from this bit has worn off a tad but dad’s intentionality and goofiness still earns a loving smirk from his son.

(YouTube/BETC Paris)

A few years later, dad has lost any semblance of caring about public perceptions and is going all out. Not only is he willing to dance in a busy, well-lit coffee shop, but he’s jamming out to his own ringtone. With a horrified “he’s not with me” expression, the son tries his best to melt into his chair and out of existence.

Dad lovingly ignores his son’s silent pleas for the torture to end and continues to show off his killer moves.

(YouTube/BETC Paris)
(YouTube/BETC Paris)

One last fast forward and it’s Christmas once again. Dad is home with mom—grey-haired and little less pep in his step—when he hears a buzzing from a present underneath the Christmas tree. Curious, he grabs the vibrating box, unwraps it, and finds a brand new smartphone indicating an incoming video call.

(YouTube/BETC Paris)

He answers, finding his son and baby grandson onscreen, dancing adorably together as “Come and Get Your Love”—their song—blares in the background.

(YouTube/BETC Paris)
(YouTube/BETC Paris)

Look, we all know this is an ad meant to sell phones, but it has all the right ingredients to pull on everyone’s heartstrings and get their tear ducts unclogged.

It shows the unique connections we have as families. It might not be a hit song from the 70s, but we all have special bonds based on things we experience together, whether it’s food, inside jokes, or some other form of media. Even when we don’t say ‘I love you’ outright, these connections are the things that imply it for us.

Special moments like these can span generations…even if you don’t have the moves like Jagger.

Tear-Jerking Nike Ad Features Kyrie Irving’s Dad [WATCH]

(BU Athletics & YouTube/Nike)

If you’re an NBA fan, you’ve undoubtedly seen Kyrie Irving dominating the court, most recently for the Boston Celtics.

What you might not know, though, is that the five-time NBA All-Star grew up competing against another great Boston player: Drederick Irving, Kyrie’s dad.

(BU Athletics)

Drederick racked up points for Boston University in the late 80s, which is also where he met Kyrie’s mom, Elizabeth Larson, who played basketball and volleyball.

“He was a great player,” Kyrie says in a recent Nike ad that features the two of them playing one-on-one at TD Garden, the Celtics’ home court.

And considering how well the 52-year-old vet still matches up against his all-star son, it’s not hard to imagine him lighting it up from the floor in his heyday.

“He’s the reason I wear number 11,” Kyrie continues in the ad. “I want to be the reason no one else will.”

(BU Athletics)

Drederick’s number was retired at Boston University in 1988 right after his graduation, and it’s no surprise why looking at his stats. The BU record books are brimming with his name.

He finished his career with the Terriers as their all-time leading scorer and his 161-point senior season ranks as the 5th highest scoring season in BU history.

Once the NCAA introduced the three-point line in the mid-80s, Drederick proved just how impressive a shooter he was, shooting 42.3 percent from behind the arc for a total of 97 three-point buckets.

(BU Athletics)

After college, Drederick had a free agent tryout for the Boston Celtics but didn’t quite make the cut. Instead, he chose to follow a fellow Terrier and play overseas, being recruited to the Bulleen Boomers of the South East Australian Basketball League in 1992. Kyrie was born that same year.

Four years later, tragedy struck when Kyrie’s mother passed away after contracting sepsis during a hospital stay. As a result, Drederick decided to close the door on his basketball career in order to raise his young children alone.

Now, with a daughter working as a successful fashion designer and a son adopting the dream that was once his, Drederick can be considered an amazing success off the court just as much as on it.

Meme Reveals the Shocking “Real Names” of Several Prominent Rappers

(Twitter/RidersOVRohan)

Please, have a seat.

I have something important to tell you and I’m worried it might come as quite a shock.

It turns out some of the most famous hip-hop artists are lying to you — not about their whips, cribs, or the absurd amount of Cristal they drink, but about…

[pause for dramatic effect]

their names.

I know, I know. I, too, assumed André 3000 was simply the 3000th André in his family lineage, but it simply isn’t true.

As it turns out, whistleblowers all over Twitter have been ousting hip-hop artists by exposing their actual names to the world (which are actually just hilarious elongated versions of the person’s stage name, e.g., “T-Pain” is short for “Tylenol Painrelief”), which has resulted in more people doing their own investigative research and “finding” gems of their own.

(Know Your Meme)

According to Know Your Meme, the absurd pseudonyms date back to 2014 when @MatCro dropped this bombshell on the world.

But people have recently gravitated toward rappers due to their already colorful stage names, one of the first being Offset.

This led to a slew of rappers’ names being unearthed. Here are some of our favorites.

New Gadget Remembers to Put Toilet Seat Down so You Don’t Have To

(Kickstarter/SmartNudge)

It’s a conflict that’s raged since the beginning of time, err… since the beginning of modern plumbing: Putting the damn toilet seat back down.

We get it, fellas. We’re men. We all have things to do and sometimes we get a little too distracted by the next task after doing our bathroom business.

Fortunately, a couple based out of New York has developed a product to finally put this issue to rest.

(Kickstarter/SmartNudge)

SmartNūdge is a clever little sensor that attaches to the inside of the toilet lid and senses when the seat is raised. After two minutes, it nudges the seat back down with a soft push.

(The average man pees for 21 seconds, so even if someone experiences a little performance anxiety, two minutes should be plenty of time to get the job done)

The product was developed by two brothers—Michael and Petr—who realized there wasn’t anything quite like this on the market at such a low price, not to mention how helpful it would be in their own relationships.

SmartNūdge couldn’t be easier to install, too. Simply add batteries, remove the adhesive, and stick it to the appropriate surface.

Don’t have a soft-close toilet seat? No worries! The SmartNūdge comes with four ‘slam stoppers’ that will muffle and protect that falling toilet seat.

Don’t want to explain to house guests why you have a mysterious device on the back of your toilet lid? Understandable! SmartNūdge also includes an optional magnetic mounting kit for easy removal.

If you (or, let’s be honest, a frustrated significant other) are interested, the SmartNūdge team is currently raising funds on Kickstarter to bring their product to market. A donation could earn you your very own SmartNūdge for a fraction of the price!

But maybe we should all hold out for one that remembers to put the toilet seat back up?

Hanging Clark Griswold Prank Makes Passerby Panic [WATCH]

(YouTube/USA Today)

Clark Griswold is just about everyone’s favorite holiday dad, so it’s no surprise that someone would try to save him if he got into yet another pickle while stringing his epic Christmas light display.

Basing their Christmas decorations on the iconic scene from “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” an Austin, TX family created a Clark dummy (lovingly named Clark Griswold Jr.) to hang from their gutters.

Unfortunately, Clark Jr. appeared a little bit too real. So real, in fact, that a panicked passerby mounted a heroic rescue attempt.

To his credit, Alfred Norwood, Jr., a U.S. military veteran, did everything he could to save Clark Jr.

He grabbed the nearby ladder, which was purposefully placed to look like it had fallen, and set it next to the dummy, calling out, “Please hold on!” and “Can you reach it?”

Norwood told ABC News affiliate KVUE that he “was trying to get him down” any way that he could. “Except when I started talking to him, he never said nothing!”

In a final attempt to help poor Clark Jr., the good Samaritan called emergency services.

Fortunately, police responding to the call had already seen the decorations and were quickly able to diffuse the tense rescue operations.

As a thank you for Norwood’s heroism, the family graciously gifted Norwood with a gift card.

Also, for good measure, they added a sign to their holiday display reading, “Clark G. is part of our Christmas display. Please don’t call 911.”

Now that everyone is calm, let’s take a moment to enjoy the original scene.

6 Gross Games That Will Make Your Family Giggle and Gag

(YouTube/Smyths Toys/Spin Master Games)

We know, we know, parent life is already chock full of gross stuff. But what if your family could actually bond over boogers and burps? Or find the fun in farts and feces?

Here’s our list of stomach-churning – yet gut busting favorites:

1. FLUSHIN’ FRENZY

Games don’t always have to be just frivolous fun and nonsense; they can teach valuable life skills, too. Take the Flushin’ Frenzy Game for example. It provides participants with important life skills like ‘plunging a clogged toilet’ and ‘catching that pesky turd that’s constantly exploding out of the tank.’ You know, just like real plumbing.

Each loosened log earns a player two tokens and the person with the most tokens at the end of the game wins!

Available here.

2. WHO TOOTED?


It doesn’t matter how old you are—farts are funny. That being said, Who Tooted? is a gassy good time for everyone involved.

Each player gets a whoopie cushion-shaped controller with which they control their flatulence. When the controllers light up, one person can press their “toot” button and let one rip, then everyone comes together in a murder mystery-style ‘whodunit’ round to figure out who the farting offender was.

Bonus points for ripping a real one to throw your opponents off the scent. Literally.

Available here.

3. PIMPLE PETE

Poor Pimple Pete has a problem with pimples and he needs a helping hand. Players turn the spinner to pick which area on Pete’s face they should target for popping. You earn points for how many pimples are plucked and some are more problematic than others. If you pull too hard you can expect a a shower from Pete’s powerful mega-zit.

WARNING: If your kids are going through puberty, they’ll be in their prime while playing this one.

Available here.

4. GOOEY LOUIE

The last thing you’d want when you have a runny nose is a bunch of kids assaulting your sensitive schnoz, but that’s exactly the cyclical hell Gooey Louie has to endure. Participants take turns ripping bright green snot rockets out of Louie’s nose, but if they pick the wrong one, Louie’s eyes bulge out and his brain goes flying out of his noggin (still trying to figure out how that last part is anatomically correct, though).

It’s all the fun of picking someone else’s disgusting nose except no one gets the flu this time!

Available here.

5. DON’T STEP IN IT

This game is a fun way to celebrate irresponsible dog ownership, without your favorite pair of shoes getting ruined. Lose your shoes and socks and then step across a narrow strip of grass…covered with dog poop. Just Don’t Step In It, sounds easy enough, right? Problem is, you’re blindfolded. Flies not included.

Available here.

6. BEAN BOOZLED

The perfect game for anyone who enjoys mixing risky life choices with candy, Bean Boozled finally allows players answer that burning question: “Can I tell the difference between buttered popcorn and a rotten egg?”

The game is simple. Participants take turns using the provided spinner to indiciate which colored jellybean to grab from the pile, each bean being either a tasty or disgusting flavor. Is it berry blue or toothpaste? Chocolate pudding or dog food? Peach or barf?

Spin at your own risk, you daredevil you.

Available here.
