Ahh, summer. 'Tis the season of watermelon art, diving fails and-- you guessed it-- belly flops. When we were kids, this pool move was awesome. But nowadays... who are we kidding? It's still (painfully) awesome!
The great thing about art is that we can express ourselves in endless ways. Feeling inspired by Grumpy Cat? Paint a detailed portrait of Tardar Sauce-- we won't judge. Or maybe 'Star Wars' gets you all jazzed. Heck, make a Lego scene to reflect those feelings! It's all fun in our books, and we're especially fans of the offbeat type of art, like that of the banana variety.
Listen everyone, there's a huge dilemma on hand. The 4th of July is only a day away, and we have one question for you: what the heck are you gonna wear?! If you're like us and have zero idea, don't panic. We're here to help.
Here at TheFW, we can find the cute in nearly any animal or insect or... well, anything. Moths, porcupines-- you name it, we're on it. So in this edition of cutest creatures, we're covering chinchillas. Warning: some serious aww's are ahead.
Here at TheFW, we’re big fans of paying it forward. Random acts of kindness can go a long way, especially in a society that’s riddled with hilarious fails and pranks. (Just kidding—that stuff is all in good fun.)
Raise your hand if you love summer. We're assuming there was just a collective "aww yeah!" among you, because seriously-- who doesn't enjoy lemonade and Slip N' Slides and hanging your head out the window? But we can't forget the tastiest way to celebrate the season-- ice cream. And lots of it.
If you're a recent graduate, you might've thought for a moment or two about the legacy you've left behind. Pranks are always a good go-to in our books, but a safer, less offensive way to leave an impression on your school is through creative yearbook quotes.
It's no secret getting a job these days is pretty tough. So that's why it's more important than ever to stand out from the rest of your peers, and we're not just talking clever resumes. See, going the creative route on actual job applications is another solid way to guarantee you'll get noticed, whether it be going overly positive or just plain hilarious (we prefer the latter).
Got any Memorial Day plans? Maybe you’re heading to a parade and dressing up in those American flag shorts (guilty). Or perhaps heading to the public pool to kick off swimming season is more your style. Whatever you do, there’s one Memorial Day staple that all Americans must experience on Monday— the BBQ.
There's nothing surprising about our pets getting into shenanigans when we're not looking. Sometimes we find the little buggers in the act, and what results is adorably hilarious. But other times, we're not lucky enough to catch them red-handed, although their guilty expressions totally allude to trouble.
