18 Grumpy Cat Valentines For Your Crabby Companion

Grumpy Cat is probably more likely to scratch your eyes out than send a valentine. But if she is going to express affection, it will be in the only way she knows how.

If you're anything like Grumpy, all this lovey-dovey stuff is simply not for you either. All those cutesy Valentine's Day cards just don't capture how you truly feel about that special someone in your life. How can you speak from the heart if you don't have one?

If you're tired of all the candy hearts and PDA that February brings, everyone's favorite cranky kitty has the perfect way to say 'I love you' without getting sentimental about it. Read more...

9 Ideas for Putin's Fantasy Olympics

The opening ceremony for the 2014 Winter Olympics were a dazzling sight to behold. With fireworks, beautiful choreography and an appearance of some strange furry characters on the ice, it was an overall success for Sochi.

But Russian President Vladimir Putin probably would have done things a little differently, if he'd had the chance. After all, he is the manliest man on the Internet, what with all the shirtless horseback riding and the shirtless fly fishing and the taming of angry leopard cubs

Twitter users all over are buzzing about what Putin's opening ceremony would have looked like, had we all just manned up and given him his druthers Read more...

Olympic Rings Fail Is Already on a T-Shirt

This Is What Happens When Smart Phones Are Even Smarter

Our smart phones act like our best friends. We take them everywhere, give them constant attention and definitely treat them better than some of our fellow humans (when we're not dropping them in the toilet)

Some day, all of our dreams may come true and our precious pocket companions will become sentient beings, rising up to become the ultimate wingmen. Imagine if Siri could stop you from drunk texting your ex, or your Instagram app could intervene on your hashtag abuse. The possibilities are endless.

Matt Higgins of Textplus Untethered explored this question and came up with the Smart(er) Phone, a feature that could be just on the horizon for smartphone users in need of an OS friend. Its snarky life advice will make you wonder why you don't already have it on your phone Read more...

Jennifer Lawrence often shines on the red carpet. Sure, it's partially because of her stunning looks, but often, her oddball antics have everyone buzzing

Grumpy Cat Vine Videos Reveal Playful Side of Sour Puss

Don't end up on Grumpy Cat's bad side — she'll chomp on your hand, and enjoy it.

Grumpy Cat's prickly expression made her an Internet superstar, but we don't often see the famous kitty doing more than sitting like a grouch on a log. Now, thanks to a few new Vine videos, we can see a new, more fun side of Grumpy

The short videos, uploaded Wednesday, show Grumpy Cat playfully nibbling on string and a hand.

The cantankerous feline currently has 18,800 followers on Vine — compare that to nearly 3 million Facebook fans — so hopefully the new videos will be two of many six-second clips shared to boost Grumpy's presence on the mobile app.
