As more and more folks familiarize themselves with the ins, outs, ups, downs, loves, and hates that come with working from home, many have elected to get creative with their Zoom backgrounds.

They’re the standing desks of 2020.

In the case of Cara Fields, amusing backdrops are no matter of choice. In recent weeks, her husband, Matt, has begun making routine cameos in the background of her conference calls.

Once as a cowboy.

Then again as Batman.

And then again as a Power Ranger.

One time he tried blending in…

But eventually, everyone found him.

The WFH antics are only gonna get better from here, gang.

We wish the best to Cara, Matt, and whatever rebel kept open their Halloween store.

Sports Commentator Narrates His Girlfriend’s Rough Hangover

Hangover Narration

This man must feel very confident in the longevity of his relationship. Toby Osborne, who commentates for Bristol City football, has used his skills to give a play-by-play analysis of what appears to be the worst hangover his girlfriend has ever had.

Imagine having a camera thrust in your face as you struggle to stay alive the morning after heavy drinking. You’re too sick and weak to say/do anything so you just have to take it. It sounds like the audio was added afterward which may have actually saved this relationship.

In the recap, Toby mimics an actual football (the soccer kind) commentator as he takes us through a detailed “game” of this poor woman’s hangover. Things start off slow, as they do, and she even tries to get something down, as we do, only to throw it all up midway through the day. But, as the day carries on, she makes a turn for the better and even ends up cooking dinner in the end.

There is something so on-point to not only Toby’s commentary but the steps we all go through on days like this. We all wish we could get that Coke down too soon and the day just turns into a complete waiting game. Cheers to Toby for testing the limits of his love. We hope she was able to laugh about it the next day.

Woman Pranks Parents by Slowly Replacing Photos With Crayon-Drawings

Family Photos Become Crayon Drawings

After countless weeks of quarantine, chances are you’ve grown weary of your living quarters, and are actively seeking ways to break free from its monotony. Sure, you could paint an accent wall, shuffle some furniture, put a succulent on the window sill. You could even stick your dad’s belongings to the ceiling to see how long it will take him to notice. The living room is your oyster.

Or, in the case of graphic designer Kristen Vogler, you could sneakily replace all the family photos with terrible crayon drawings.

“Sneaking these masterpieces up was not easy,” Kristen wrote in a Facebook post. “I had to hide in the bathroom clutching the frames multiple times.”

Sure enough, over the course of 12 days, she swapped them out one by one. Her commitment to the bit is impressive, to say the least.

“The beginning, just a normal photo wall of memories.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 1. The first crayon drawing is placed, bets were made on how many photos and how long it would take them to notice.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 2. After FaceTiming with my grandparents (the subjects of my first crayon replica) for an hour near this wall, I decided to add another piece while my parents took a walk.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 3. Up to three crayon artworks now and still not even a glance. That door on the left? It’s used multiple times a day.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 4. Thought I would get caught today. I had been posting on Twitter about my progress and my mom chose today to try to start a twitter account to talk to John Krasinski about Some Good News but luckily her account was locked.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 5. At this point it was getting harder to pick photos I thought weren’t noticeable plus I felt like I smelled like crayons constantly.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 6. After getting a ton of rain for days I was needing to get sneakier to be able to add these to the wall. I think today I convinced my mom to go for a run before it rained haha.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 7. Today was a twofer with these classic Christmas photos. At this point I was starting to think I should have guessed based on weeks and not days for how long it would take them to notice.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 8. I legit did not think I would get this far, but here we are.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 9. Only three left to go before my work is complete. I should probably take a moment to apologize to my art teachers. You tried really hard to teach me to draw people, and this is what I’ve done.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 10. Happy Easter. My mom was nice enough to hide Easter eggs for me, in return I did this to the photo of her first born.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 11. I almost got caught hanging this one up. Had to hide in the bathroom but they still didn’t notice.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

Kristen’s mom and dad caught on to her shenanigans by day 11, unfortunately. But thankfully she caught the moment on video.

“Day 11 – 7 hours later. I heard the initial “wait… what” and went running over in time to capture this moment. I like to think they noticed because I replaced my senior photo and of course they look at the picture of their favorite daughter the most right?”

She was too deep to give up now. On day 12, she finished the job.

“Day 12. I needed closure, Kerri wanted to be included.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

Pranks don’t get much more wholesome than this. Bravo.

We applaud Kristen for the strides she’s made in interior decorating, and wish her and her crayon family the best in health and sanity.

Shaq “Grows Out” Hair After Losing Bet to Dwyane Wade

Shaq Grows Hair After Losing Bet

The best wagers made between friends always involve something more damaging than the transaction of funds. A good bet between friends has to involve some level of humiliation, and that is the explanation for why Shaq appeared on his NBA show looking like you’ve never seen him before.

Shaq lost a bet to Dwyane Wade on a prediction of how the Milwaukee v. Miami game would pan out. Shaq saw the Bucks winning in a blowout. Wade saw the Heat prevailing. The latter was right. And the result? Shaq, the notoriously shaved-headed giant, had to let his hairline grow out.

“Let’s just get it out of the way, America,” Shaq said during the show. “I had a bet against one of my good friends, D-Wade, Milwaukee versus the Heat. I said Milwaukee was gonna win by 20 and the Heat won. I said, ‘Well, what do you want me to do, pay you?’ He said, ‘Nah, you gotta let your hairline grow.’ ”

I think Shaq knows how ridiculous he looks, which is why he invited the hardest, cruelest comments possible on his Instagram post (which, honestly, would’ve happened anyway even without the incentive).

Love you @therealmikeepps

Employee Weaponizes Holiday Cheer by Gift-Wrapping Boss’s Entire Office

(Twitter / jothornely)

Look, I can hold my own when it comes to wrapping Christmas presents but I’m not one of those people who can make frickin’ works of art with one measly piece of colored paper and some tape. You know the ones – they can wrap anything, no matter the size, shape, or consistency. Usually, such powers are used for good. Other times, though, they are utilized for some top-notch holiday shenanigans.

Jo Thornly—Sydney-based author, podcast host, and self-proclaimed spelling bee champion—decided to festively decorate her superior’s office with wrapping paper.

And we’re talking the entire office, folks.

Thornly’s boss had taken the day off, something the malevolent gift-wrapper says they “might never do again.”

Just about every surface is tastefully covered in festive, Santa-covered paper—chairs, books, the phone, even the computer. It’s so intricate and thorough, it rivals the original source material (without the additional prank, as far as we know).

People on Twitter were quick to support Thornly’s truly “gifted” pranking skills as well as desperately hoping to see her boss’s response:

No word yet on the response from Thornly’s boss, but if she gets fired, I got dibs on hiring her as my professional gift wrapper.
