Weird And Wonderful Illustrated Letters From A 16th Century Songbook

The Songbook of Zeghere van Male contains local and international 500 year old songs and motets. Made in 1542, the 1200-page long book is rich in illuminations, depicting ornamental and historiated initials and interlinear drawings not necessarily related to its content.

Also known by its call number MS 125-128 in Cambrai’s Mediathèque Municipale, the late Medieval work consists of four complementary part-books: Superius, Altus, Tenor, & Bass. And each part features bizarre, amusing and scatological illustrated letters.

Artist Creates Brilliant Comics For People Who Like Dark Humor

There are many comic creators out there in the world and they cover lots of topics and themes—from girl problems to fantasy stories. But not all creators are as brave as Andy, better known as Comic Dux. Andy makes dark humor comics with unexpected and twisted endings that will probably leave you surprised and often feeling a little violated.

Andy’s style is very simplistic and colorful. He usually doesn’t draw more than four-panel stories, which are more than enough to tell his creative and fun ideas. There is no denying that his sense of humor is quite unique and not for everyone. So if you’re squeamish or don’t like edgy themes, we would advise you to skip these comics.

Sarcastic ‘Texts From Your Existentialist’ That Might Make You Laugh, Then Cry

This Instagram account with over 500k followers named “Texts From Your Existentialist” mashes up classical art and modern-day quotes depicting various sarcastic and even downright ridiculous scenarios. The main idea behind the account is to insert 21st-century text messages into classical paintings, movie stills, and retro art.

April Eileen Henry is a poet who lives in Los Angeles. She created this project back in 2014, and Bored Panda reached out to her to find out a little bit more.

“One day I didn’t get a text back and started texting myself things I’d say to them. My art history background informed my muses. All the French existential thinkers sitting at Cafe de Flore in Paris inspired me.”

The page first started out with a Tumblr page and then grew and shifted into an Instagram page as well. As of now, the “Texts From Your Existentialist” has a racking number of half a million followers with an average post reaching over 10k likes and more. The page’s owner April also has a website too.

“Texts From Your Existentialist” often depicts sarcastic and demotivational texts on classical art and movie stills. You can even find juxtaposed pieces of famous artists such as Vincent van Gogh, Hilma af Klint, and even movie scenes that include the old Hollywood actresses such as Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, and many others.

“Texts From Your Existentialist” also sells merchandise, the most popular thing being prints. Because who wouldn’t want a hilarious, yet sad quote that they could proudly put on their desk or on a wall? Talk about having something weird but equally artistic and unique in your house. Although, having such prints hanging in your house might leave some of the guests with more questions rather than answers.

Funny Animal Pics That Just Don’t Make Any Sense, As Shared On This Instagram Account

Animals aren’t always as majestic as wildlife photography contests depict them. Sometimes they look as derpy as me and you. And believe me, I wouldn’t be saying such a thing if I didn’t have any proof to back it up.

Enter Doggo Taxi. It’s an Instagram account that shares random animal photos with no context whatsoever. Like cats helping their owner to puke. Or walruses highjacking a boat. Whatever you can’t think of, Doggo Taxi has it. The best part, these pictures are strangely wholesome too. Continue scrolling and check them out yourself.

Snails Start Attacking Man’s Garden, Instead of Killing Them, He Puts Up Scary Signs

Bertrand Hance planted himself a garden. The man grew zucchini, beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants to pass his free time and everything seemed fine until they arrived.

With no regard to Bertrand and his work, snails flooded his land and started ravaging the greens. The beasts came in numbers too. It became obvious pretty soon that Bertrand would have to take drastic measures. But due to his compassion, the gardener refused to kill them. Instead, he tried out a more humane approach. Bertrand put up insulting, threatening, and scary signs to fight off the enemy.

Someone Created Words To Describe Weird Things And Situations

According to The Cunning Linguist: “The English language is known for its richness and inventiveness. Well, I’m not impressed. Where’s the term for ‘a person who annoyingly laughs at non-funny things,’ ‘someone who’s always butt dialing you,’ or ’something that comes back to bite you in the a***’? I’ve solved that pressing problem. You’re welcome. If you like punny portmanteaus, there’s plenty more where these came from! If you don’t mind the odd sex joke. If that sounds like you, go to my Instagram. I also take requests!”

It’s made from 100% latex so it should be dried, turned inside out and wiped down with a damp cloth before using for the first time. It will also give you some time to reflect on your life and decisions that led you to buy this thing in the first place. Maybe you don’t need this mask? Maybe you need some therapy?

In case you are absolutely positive that you want to spend your money on this creepy thing, you can get it on Amazon. Jeff Bezos will be happy to get some extra funds from you for his next space flight.
