What if they labelled movie posters more accurately?

I’m a firm believer in truth-in-advertising. So, I really enjoyed this imaginative romp from Iveta Pete and the mad geniuses at Bored Panda.

“Movie posters don’t always tell it like it is. And that’s probably a good thing, at least for the people who make them. After all, would you pay to watch a film called ‘Young Woman Needlessly Degrades Herself To Be With Complete Arsehole’? How about ‘Liam Neeson Punches People’, or ‘Channing Tatum Takes His Shirt Off Again Or Something’? Ok, so maybe some of you would still pay to watch that last one.”

Paintings Inspired by Studio Ghibli

When fan art can stand on its own merits. From Šarūnė Mac and the mad geniuses at Bored Panda.

“Brilliant Studio Ghibli animation has inspired many people in a lot of different ways. Their touching stories and incredibly detailed animation style have touched us all. Bored Panda has collected some of the best Miyazaki fans’ paintings to show what creative admirers are capable of.

From vibrant watercolors to a ‘Starry Night’ version of Totoro, these paintings will hopefully fill the void ’till Hayao Miyazaki finishes his newest animation. And if you are an artist yourself, we hope that these pieces will inspire you to create something awesome and add it to this list!”

A Man & His Cat Recreate Classic Movie Scenes

Some people love their cats perhaps a bit too much… By Greta J and the mad geniuses at Bored Panda.

“David and Sarah, a couple from the UK, are recreating famous movie scenes together with their cats and it couldn’t get any funnier! They have two cats who are almost identical named Willow and Tara, but Tara stars in most of their pictures. “We started doing it as a picture question in our pub quiz’s film/TV round, and it went down really well so we made it a regular thing,” – the couple told The Dodo.

“The cats clearly think we’re weird. It can be a challenge to get [the cats] to cooperate, but they get lots of treats so that tends to win them over to our nonsense,” Sarah and David told LoveMeow.

The good news for the movie and feline lovers is that there’s more pictures to come! “We’re going to keep making them. It’s a hilarious way to spend a Sunday!”

Zombie Head Coffee Mugs

It did not occur to me that I needed a zombie head coffee mug. But after seeing these, now I do. From Kevin Merck and the mad geniuses at Bored Panda.

“Zombies want to eat your brains, but the only way to kill a zombie is by removing its brains; meanwhile, you just want to have a cup of coffee in the morning. Now, thanks to Kevin “Turkey” Merck, you can avoid zombie attacks and have your morning brew, all for the low price of 220 USD. Merck’s terrifying mugs are hand-made from clay and epoxy resin, so you can be sure your zombie skull has no unpleasant flavor.

“My best friend’s dad, Wayne Hewell, is a 5th generation Master Potter and I began studying under him starting in 2001,” Merck recounted to the Examiner. “When I say studying, I mean that I went and hung out in his old shop and he taught me how to turn and work with clay, nothing formal. The area where I grew up is covered up in very skilled craftsmen that work with clay and I was fortunate enough to learn from multiple potters, each one offering help in specific areas such as glazing and firing. As far as doing it for a living, I am a high school teacher and, right now, I only work on my sculptures in the evenings and Saturdays.”
