The week's best of the internet
The best images, videos, and memes to emerge from the great digital playground — from an adorable taekwondo match to BuzzFeed articles without GIFs
If you were unlucky enough to sign into Twitter this week, chances are you saw people tweeting at @tofu_product, a conversation bot of sorts. Only instead of trying to carry on a faux conversation like the AIM bots of yesterday, Tofu — as he's known — scans your tweet history and messages back a random, mostly nonsensical composite of what you sound like on Twitter.
Verified: It works as advertised. Try it out yourself.
3. BuzzFeed articles without GIFs
What if you took away all the animated loveliness that makes BuzzFeed, well, BuzzFeed? You're left with sparkling prosaic genius like this, from "8 Reasons Candy Corn is the Worst":
It's neither candy nor corn. Well, it might technically be a candy and includes corn syrup as an ingredient, but honestly, it just doesn't count. Candy corn leaves kids feeling sad and unfulfilled. Wax is an actual ingredient in candy corn. The other ingredients are sugar, corn syrup, salt, egg whites, and colorings. When trick or treating, it is almost always distributed in a homemade bag. Oreo couldn’t even make candy corn work. If you hand out candy corn on Halloween, you will be lame. You will end up with a lot of leftover wax-candy. [Tumblr]
4. The world's fluffiest bunny
Yes, it's real, and also the world's oldest domesticated rabbit. io9 has the story behind it.
5. Drake's new friends
Drake has a song called "No New Friends." Sample lyric: "I don't really need no new friends, no new friends, no no no new."
Naturally, someone put together a Tumblr called Drakes New Friends, which courageously exposes the sad rapper's ugly hypocrisy.
Ugh. Come onnnnnnn, dude. Have some INTEGRITY.
