a practical guide to becoming a true pun master

animeteen:

  1. accept that no pun is actually Good, but that the true nature of a good pun is to be so terrible that it becomes good.
  2. say every pun that occurs to you. i’m so serious about this, sometimes the most well received puns will be ones you considered not saying.
  3. ALWAYS laugh at your own puns, even if nobody else is. (especially if nobody else is.)
  4. know that you are hilarious. puns are a limitless resource and you have taken it as your duty to bring this gift to humanity. you are a hero.

Science + Art = Awesome!

Today the Department of Microscopic Marvels explores the exquisitely beautiful art of arranging Diatoms, tiny unicellular algae encased in jewel-like glass shells, into complex kaleidoscopic displays, some of which date back to the Victorian era. They’re works of art that are invisible to the naked eye and must be viewed under a microscope.

Ranging in size from 2 to 200 micrometers, diatoms are among the smallest organisms on the planet. They’re a form of phytoplankton and scientists estimate that there are roughly 100,000 existent species. To create the lovely and astonishingly tiny displays pictured above, diatoms must be found, captured, cleaned, organized and then finally positioned into aesthetically pleasing arrangements in microscope slides.

So how is all of this accomplished? English filmmaker Matthew Killip contacted Diatom specialist and master micromanipulator Klaus Kemp in order to find out. Kemp has dedicated his life to studying and perfecting this microscopic Victorian art form and Killip sat down with him to learn about the process of creating diatom arrangements. The result was a short film entitled The Diatomist.

The Shoe Bakery makes cake and ice cream shaped shoes good enough to eat 

TUMBLR / ETSTY/ FACEBOOK / INSTAGRAM / PINTEREST

It’s a common adage that when something looks amazing, we feel like we could eat it up. But in the case of these shoes, we can’t tell if we’re astounded or hungry. If you love shoes, and cake, we’ve found the ideal footwear for you.

The Shoe Bakery is a shoe store in Orlando, Florida, founded by Chris Campbell, an artist who wanted to combine his love of shoe and sweet treats, and started designing shoes shaped like cakes and ice cream. The Shoe Bakery started life as an Etsy store, but the incredible popularity of his designs has meant The Shoe Bakery has opened up its own independent store.

Each amazing pair of shoes is handmade to order - and are so incredibly realistic that the site includes on its FAQ list a disclaimer that they definitely are not edible. Chris says that “in order to make it look like frosting, we use the same tools that bakers use such as the icing bags and tips.”
