Jorts are the dumbest things I've ever seen. Next to Toms shoes. Next to the Toyota Prius. Next to d-bags taking pictures of their food. There are so many things that suck that people think are cool. For real, some of the supposed best bands ever and the greatest movies of all time are just overrated bunches of garbage.

So add the things that you think have run their course or never had a leg to stand on to begin with, like people that use their children as their profile picture. Unless you were permanently scarred and no longer recognizable after giving birth, this is not okay. (UPDATE: it has been determined this is never okay).

If there are other things that society has deemed acceptable and/or cool that are missing from the list, make sure to add them so other people can finally realize that the things they are doing (like the Harlem Shake) are just not okay.

<![CDATA[The Best Episodes of Between Two Ferns]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-between-two-ferns/mel-judson
Many celebrities do talk show appearances, but only a select few have been invited to join comedian Zach Galifianakis on his Funny or Die web series, "Between Two Ferns." On his web talk show, Galifianakis interviews famous actors (and even President Barack Obama) with his signature style and wit. Galifianakis is one of the funniest comedians around, and "Between Two Ferns" has resulted in some of the best videos on the Internet.

Which celebrities have done "Between Two Ferns"? The likes of Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman, and Justin Bieber have all been put in the hot seat and subjected to Galifianakis's pranks. Even Will Farrell, who founded Funny or Die along with his partner, Adam McKay, has appeared on the web talk show, playing right along with Galifianakis's jokes.

"Between Two Ferns" is a hilarious satire and might just be one of the best web series on the Internet. Though Galifianakis was excellent in The Hangover films, on Bored to Death, and in pretty much everything else he's done, "Between Two Ferns" might just be his best work.

<![CDATA[The Most Impractical Sexy Halloween Costumes Ever]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/impractical-sexy-halloween-costumes/devon-ashby
The tradition of the "sexy" Halloween costume has become a holiday cliché, but no one ever stops to consider the full dimension of absurdity that these costumes encompass. Some concepts, like "sexy cop," boggle the imagination automatically, by force of their pure and fundamental oxymoronic nature. Others, like "sexy mechanic" or "sexy executioner" may require deeper reflection before the true roots of their ridiculousness can be unearthed and contemplated.

None of us are short of examples when it comes to the most ridiculous sexy Halloween costumes of all time – few things are goofier than a sexed-up Big Bird costume. But what about the more mundane examples? Have you ever really paused to consider how perplexing the idea of a sexy lumberjack is? If not, perhaps the following examples will give you pause.

Sexy Eskimo
We've previously touched upon the advent of racist Halloween costumes in our Dumb "Sexy" Halloween Costumes List. In addition to being ignorant and offensive, however, this costume is also a baffling oxymoron (unless this hypothetical cold-weather-dwelling indigenous person is just an incredibly terrible hunter who was forced to craft her winter garment from the pelt of a single snow otter).
Sexy Miner
Nothing is sexier than choking on clouds of coal dust! Not to mention the auxiliary skinned knees and bruises that would surely be the result of foregoing the requisite bulky coveralls. (Plus, what's the deal with that lunchbox? What's she got in there, sushi?)
Sexy Football Player
I guess to be totally fair, this costume offers only slightly less coverage than the official uniforms of the Lingerie Football League. We still can't help looking at this costume and thinking about that scene in A League of Their Own where somebody slides into home base in a miniskirt and spends the rest of the game moaning in pain and being coated in iodine, though.
Sexy Medical Practitioner
We're unsure whether this person is supposed to be a doctor or a nurse, but we hope she doesn't have to lean too far forward to measure our heart rate with that stethoscope, or she's liable to twist an ankle and fall over. (If she doesn't contract some horrible disease first – aren't doctors supposed to wear rubber gloves and masks for this type of thing?)
Sexy Jason Voorhees
In an odd way, we guess this costume is actually sort of progressive, in that it imagines Jason Voorhees himself as one of the hapless, oversexualized young women he typically murders. Purely from an engineering perspective, however, we have to reluctantly admit that those boots just don't provide the type of leverage typically associated with the more efficient forms of mass murder.
Sexy Construction Worker
Many things are wrong with this costume (the traffic cones are such a glaring faux pas that they almost don't bear mentioning) but what's really most inexplicable are the unwieldy, geometric-looking work boots and the enormous prop hammer.
Sexy Lady Version of Batman
We suppose we could call this costume "Sexy Batgirl," but let's be honest, this looks nothing at all like Batgirl. Nor should it, since it's kind of horrifying to imagine all the awful things that could happen once that voluminous tulle miniskirt started catching on sharp objects during a death-defying, action-packed fight sequence.
Sexy Cop
This is probably the most singularly impractical costume on the entire list, since we literally can't imagine a single task related to police work that wouldn't be completely sabotaged by it. In addition to its more obvious impracticalities, this uniform is also blindingly reflective, and the skirt is so short that even doing desk work would be made unnecessarily uncomfortable due to sweat-induced butt-stickage.
Sexy Egyptian Goddess
We won't question the mysterious traditions of generic, Westernized "Egyptian" goddesses such as this one, and we do have to admit that her knee-high sandals are sort of cool. Hopefully, being an Egyptian Goddess doesn't involve too much physical movement, though, because whatever those hanging wrist embellishment things are, they look slightly uncomfortable and likely to get tangled up with other stuff.
Sexy Astronaut
We always sort of thought the point of wearing a space suit was to protect the delicate inner workings of the human body from the oxygen-deprived toxicity of outer space, but we guess if you're more fashion-oriented, substituting suspenders and daisy dukes might be worth the additional safety risks.

<![CDATA[30 Unfortunate Pet Halloween Costumes]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/funny-pet-halloween-costumes/anabel-conner
Counting down the days to Halloween? Let's face it, this holiday is hella fun, but it does come with a fair amount of bother and stress.There's lots to do, including putting together the finishing touches on your costume, arranging a designated driver for the evening's spook-tacular revelry, and preparing to shell out more money on candy to feed trick-or-treaters than you probably pay in taxes. It's important to keep a sense of humor alive while going through the motions, which is probably why many people decide to dress their pets in Halloween costumes. Who doesn't want to see a pug dressed like Yoda, or a cat in Pippi Longstocking pigtails? Even something totes obvious like a dachshund made to look like a hotdog is, at the very least, mildly amusing.

Most animals are good sports, even though it seems evident that many feel demoralized while wearing Halloween costumes. Vote up which of these unfortunately dressed pets is worthy of the most laughs. Keep in mind that no animals were harmed in any of these photos... unless you count the crushing of their souls.


Batman, All Squishy and Frumpy-Like
This chihuahua is either feeling completely shameful (and rightfully so!) being dressed in his costume, or he was just told that Ben Affleck is going to be portraying The Caped Crusader in the next Batman flick.
Ok. So this outfit is totally adorable. But, look at those worried little eyes. It's like this pup is saying "Why don't you just club me now and get it over with?"
Walter White and His Hazmat Suit
This poor cat's costume either says it's "time to cook" or "it's time to call animal control" and report it as abuse!
The Frog Dog... or Dog Frog?
Someone decided it was a good idea to make a dog frog... or a frog dog. Either way, he does not seem like a happy fellow. Not only does this get-up do an immense disservice to frogs, dogs, canines, and amphibians across the globe, but it's probably next to impossible to hop, let alone move, on those chunky paper mâché legs.
An Adorable Freddy Krueger
Freddy Krueger is a creepy dude that haunts the dreams of unsuspecting young adults, slicing them to bits with his razor talons. It's a mystery why one would dress such a cute pup as such a heinous character, but maybe he disembowels squeaky toys and does some major damage to a bowl of kibble. 
The Saddest Elephant in the Room
This level of sadness should never be seen during holiday frivolity. Elephants never forget, and neither will this put-out pup.
Superman Looking Defeated
It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a... really demoralized pug in a Superman costume.
A Less Scary-Looking Oompa Loompa
It doesn't matter if you are Johnny Depp himself, anyone with a Willy Wonka fetish needs to step awaaaaay from the animals. Just look at this confused-looking Golden Retriever. Those who dress their pets like Oompa Loompas are not worthy of a golden ticket!
Mr. T and His Gold Chains
Mr. T dog says "I pity the fool who tries to make me dress up next year."
A Big, Fat, Lovable Walrus
The Beatles kept singing "I Am The Walrus" and kept everyone in suspense. Was it John? Was it Paul? Evidently, everyone who guessed was wrong, and this Boston Terrier is shocked and awed to discover that he has been the walrus all along. Or, at least that is what his Halloween costume indicates.

<![CDATA[The Most WTF Things Politicians Said This Year]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/wtf-things-politicians-said-this-year/mel-judson

The most shocking political quotes of 2014 are here, and they are all from elected officials! This list ranks the craziest politician quotes from the year, including all of the worst gaffes and all of the most ridiculous, foot-in-mouth moments from some of the world's most prominent officials. The most disturbing lines on the list, of course, come when these politicians and candidates really did mean what they said. Though politicians are typically excellent public speakers, these elected leaders have made 2014 a year with plenty of funny political quotes and surprising political statements.

Whether they’re hilarious blunders, like gay marriage opponent Rick Santorum saying it’s “fun” to “bang the president,” or absolutely horrendous, like Indian politicians defending rape as “accidental,” all of these ridiculous statements from politicians will have you asking, “WTF?” But WTF moments from politicians in 2014 extend beyond America. Many international politicians have gotten in on the fun too. In addition to quotes from political party officials in Indian Parliament, the ridiculous political statements on this list include everyone’s favorite Canadian politician, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.

What crazy things have politicians and world leaders said in 2014? This list compiles the best of the worst quotes from senators, representatives, governors, vice presidents, former presidents, and current president(s) alike. No matter their status in national or international government, these leaders have all made some very public errors in 2014. 


Babulal Gaur
"This is a social crime which depends on the man and the woman. It is sometimes right and sometimes wrong."

Babulal Gaur Yadav (Bharatiya Janata Party) gave this defense of rape after the 2014 Badaun gang rape. Even the party distanced itself from the Indian politician, saying it was only his personal opinion.

Barack Obama

Barack Obama (Democrat) awkwardly said this to a White House crowd, which included Aretha Franklin. POTUS, evidently, isn't great at spelling.

Bill Clinton
"The great thing about not being president anymore is you can say whatever you want. Unless your wife might run for something."

Bill Clinton (Democrat) is definitely on track to be the first and funniest first gentleman. This quote almost insinuates that former President Clinton wasn't honest when he was in office! Who would have thought?!

Brian Schweitzer
"If you were just a regular person, you turned on the TV, and you saw Eric Cantor talking, I would say – and I'm fine with gay people, that's all right. But my gaydar is 60-70 percent."

Brian Schweitzer (Democrat) hinted at Eric Cantor, who's straight, being homosexual. Maybe he thought that because he's part of the "gay-friendly" party, he could casually drop the word "gaydar"? The former governor of Montana later apologized.

Joe Biden
"Isn't it a bitch? I mean... excuse me. The vice president thing."

Joe Biden (Democrat) was talking to a fellow vice president, this one of the Harvard business school and got real comfortable, even though he was in front of a crowd. Does everyone's favorite gaffe-machine not like his job?

Mulayam Singh Yadav
"Boys will be boys... They commit mistakes."

Mulayam Singh Yadav (Samajwadi Party) delivered this line during his argument against capital punishment for rape. As chairman of his party and member of Parliament, Yadav doesn't seem worried about voicing his beliefs.

Sarah Palin
"Waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists."

Sarah Palin (Republican) told NRA members that this is what terrorists would know if she "were in charge." And thus, she reminded us, again, why she didn't snag that Vice Presidential position a few years back.

Thom Tillis
"Let's enforce laws already on the books."

Thom Tillis (Republican) decided to defend the fact that women earn 82 cents on the dollar as compared to men. A candidate for Senate in North Carolina, he clearly let voters know that he doesn't care much about the gender pay gap and caught a fair amount of flak.

Charles Van Zant
"These people will promote double-mindedness in state education and attract every one of your children to become as homosexual as they possibly can."

Charles Van Zant (Republican), a member of the Florida House of Representatives, expressed his fears about Common Core to a Floridian crowd of anti-Core protesters. State Representative Van Zant is, apparently, very scared the new education initiative.

Ram Sewak Paikra
"Such incidents do not happen deliberately. These kind of incidents happen accidentally."

Ram Sewak Paikra (Bhariatiya Janata Party) shocked the world with this characterization of rape. The Indian cabinet minister and senior leader is responsible for law and order in the state assembly. How comforting.

<![CDATA[The Funniest Names for Kickball Teams]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/funny-kickball-team-names/kel-varnsen
Kickball. It's an amazing game, if we're all honest with each other for three seconds. It requires only basic motor skills and a cursory knowledge of how baseball works, essentially. But in kickball, you can't get hit in the head by a 90 mph fastball. You do, however, get to launch a mostly harmless rubber ball at your opponents' heads, and that's awesome. That's what America, at its core, is all about.

It's so fun, We all played it growing up (or most of us did, I would guess) and now there are leagues across the country where we can continue to play it as adults. As it was before, it is now. It's all about fun. That's why your team needs an awesome name.

Here's a list of some funny kickball team names. Vote for your favorites! Steal them for your own team! Have fun!

The We're Probably Drunks

The Last Picks

The Gym Class Heroes

The We Aren't Athletic Enough for Slow-Pitch Softballs
