More People Are Dressing Up As Ray Rice For Halloween – Including Children

AYFKMWTS?!? (<-------- I'd spell that out for you, but I'd probably get in trouble.) Last week I reported about a guy who dressed up as "Domestic Abuse Ray Rice" for Halloween, complete with a blowup doll that he drug around that was meant to depict Rice's wife, Janay Rice. I thought he might be the only one stupid enough to do such a thing. I thought he might be the only person in America that would look at a case that has clearly brought intimate partner violence to light and think that it was something to joke about.

Apparenlty, I had too much faith in humanity.

LeVar Burton Reads Vulgar Children’s Book ‘Go the F*** To Sleep’ [Video]

I don't care what you're doing right now, you need to stop doing it and watch this video (as long as you aren't at work and their aren't kids around because this video DOES contain NSFW language.)

Now that LeVar Burton has raised enough money to bring "Reading Rainbow" back, he's moved on to other things. Most recently, it was reading a rather vulgar "children's book" (I say "children's" because I'm pretty sure it's actually aimed toward adults) aloud to a group of adults. It's pretty awesome.

An Actual Bass Singer Covers ‘All About That Bass’ [VIDEO]

I never imagined that  I would experience a man with a very deep baritone voice singing Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass", but it exists and frankly a song called "All About That Bass" should probably have a bass version. Bass singer Avi Kaplan (from Pentatonix) and backup vocalists Mario Jose and Naomi Samilton decided to do a bass version. A bass version that features mountains of fries and cheeseburgers.

Men Try On Women’s Sexy Halloween Costumes [VIDEO]

Let's face it, ladies... Halloween costumes have reached ridiculous levels. It seems like you can find a "sexy" version of darn near anything these days. Seriously. I was at a Halloween store over the weekend and I saw sexy snow man, sexy My Little Pony, sexy ninja, and about five hundred other "sexy" variations on what could be totally normal costumes. Including a sexy carrot. Sexy. Carrot.

It seems the folks at Buzzfeed have also discovered this trend, and decided to have a group of men try on some of the more popular sexy costumes while they videotaped it. The result is hysterical
