A couple weeks ago, way back when the 2012 Olympics were still happening, forums member Lincoln started a Photoshop thread called "Olympic divers are so funny." Close, but no medal; turns out the SA Goons were much more interested in Chernabog's variation: "Olympic synchronized swimmers are scary as fuck." Having been subjected to a humorous SNL parody in 1984 and countless hacky jokes in the decades since, synchronized swimmers have apparently wiped those theatrical smiles off their faces and unleashed their Lovecraftian wrath. It's the "tell people that you'll never sleep again because of a thing you saw on the Internet" theme of the summer!

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
