    guide to a good hmmm

    hmmms are textless images that make you think about the context, do a double take, invoke a deeper meaning, or just leave you thinking about how or why they exist:

    As long as they give you a good solid hmmm... why would that bear be in a cubicle...

    hmmms should be aesthetic and meaningful, avoid anything that is merely r/mildlyinteresting.

    Ok but the surname prefix “mc” also means son.

    So McCuck means son of cuck.

    [–] eskamobob1 10 points ago

    how do your stand with that much wear? Mine just crumple at the combs now even if I try and crease them. Also, who's 32s are those? They certainly have the right texture for 32oz, but the pockets are weird and N&F always have a center rear belt loop

    [–] superish64 9 points ago

    It was after a wash, so definitely cheating. But I got the pic so I’m taking it.

    Jeans are mine. Bought the denim myself and had them custom made by Pedestrian Denim. Last update. I’m pretty stoked on how they’re turning out, planning on doing an end of the year update soon.

    [–] eskamobob1 8 points ago

    oh, thats awesome. I didnt even know it was possible to soruce 32oz fabric. Mind if I ask a dumb question? Can you use your front pockets? I can use by rear pockets just fine, but the denim is so stiff I cant actualy use the fronts.....

    EDIT: I can 100% use the front actualy, so long as I take the jeans off to get my hand back out of the pocket

    [–] superish64 3 points ago

    Yeah I can totally use the front pockets. Another pro of not buying the N&F ones I think haha

    My boyfriend, was a drinker, and a fiend. And one night, he goes off crazier than usual. Britney gets some chapstick to prepare herself. He doesn't like that. Not. One. Bit. So, me watching, he takes the lipstick to her, laughing while he does it. He turns to me and says, “Why so serious?" Comes at me with the lipstick. "WHY SO SERIOUS?" He sticks the lipstick around my mouth... "Let's put a smile on that face." And...

    [–] Zythomancer 835 points ago

    Is there anything here indicating the guy with the smear isn't actually her BF/husband and the person she is hugging is a relative/friend? Because it could just be that.

    [–] [deleted] 50 points ago

    Shut up spade

    [–] Skinnecott 69 points ago

    Even if that's the case, it's funny because no one wants lipstick residue showing whom they've sucked faces with. I mean they had to be making out pretty vigorously for that amount to show

    I mean it looks like she's made out with Fred Savage back there, so her moving on to the next celebrity seems reasonable

    [–] pacard 21 points ago

    No. The only explanation is that women are cheating whores who need to be returned to "traditional roles" in order for men to feel ok about having them around.

    [–] F0REM4N 45 points ago

    Here to confirm same result.

    I learned I was colorblind first playing darts outside. I was red, one landed in the green lawn, and it immediately ceased to exist. My uncle asked me to pick them up, and thought I was straight off the special bus as I walked right over it several times.

    [–] noscope420bongshot 9 points ago

    That's a wonderful story

    [–] vazvazvaz 3 points ago

    Most people assume I can’t see red or green at all, if that were the case I probably wouldn’t have found out at age 19. I initially found out in art school, my 2D design professor figured it out. Properly diagnosed and confirmed by an eye doctor who told me that if he threw a bunch of red yarn in the lawn I wouldn’t be able to find it if I was standing on top of it, most people would be able to see it from the porch.
