<![CDATA[30 Days That Were Almost Completely Ruined]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/save-the-day-gifs/robert-wabash
This is a list of people who have missed accidents and tragedies by the skin of their teeth. These lucky sons-of-breeches are only walking around today because of sheer dumb luck (and quick feet). We have collected the very best GIFs of near misses and close calls, some are breath taking and others, cringing. You won't know whether to sigh in relief or facepalm at these idiots' decisions!

Whether's it's standing in the middle of a high speed truck race or deep sea scuba diving with hungry sharks, these GIFs show some of the best near-FAILs we have ever seen. If you see a GIF where you want to give the guy a pat on the back, give it a thumbs up. But if you see something that you think you could do yourself, go ahead and give it a thumbs down. Don't worry – we totally won't judge you.

Take a few photos, they said. It will be easy, they said.

It's almost human snack time

And they say train spotting is relaxing...

Pick up the pace, pick up the pace!

Coming through, don't mind me...

Cellphones are so distracting

They must've not heard the train coming

This girl thought posing in the path of a truck race was a good idea...

Now that's what I call security!

He's having an arse of a day!

<![CDATA[Things That Are Not As Cool As People Think They Are]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/things-that-are-not-as-cool-as-people-think-they-are/hoserusc
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[36 Huge Thanksgiving FAILs]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/thanksgiving-fails/robert-wabash
Thanksgiving is one of the best American holidays, but is also the most FAIL worthy. On Turkey Day, the food is the star, and you can't hide your Thanksgiving dinner screw ups behind great presents. From burned turkeys, deep fryer fires, questionable side dishes, and horrifying Thanksgiving apparel, we've gathered the most absurdly awful Thanksgiving FAILs here – so learn from these mistakes.

Can you buy a turkey hat? Sure, but maybe don't. The same goes for those ugly Thanksgiving holiday sweaters and turkey from a can. Just don't do that. It's not why the Pilgrims braved their Mayflower journey, and your family will just be embarrassed. These funny Thanksgiving FAILs will have you giving thanks that your own holiday dinner certainly can't be this bad. These are some of the worst Thanksgiving ideas ever and sadly, are recipes for failure, not delicious pumpkin pie.

Even the pros at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade aren't immune. Those big balloons are tricky and take a lot of work to keep afloat. You can sit back and laugh at their parade FAILs, but make sure your own Thanksgiving decorations and centerpieces aren't more reminiscent of Halloween by NOT making the one on this list.

No matter what's on your Thanksgiving menu this year, surely your holiday meal will be better than those on this list, and maybe your turkey-themed desserts will actually look like turkeys!

It Was A Slow Death

The Shinier the Cranberry Sauce, the More Delicious it Is

Flaming Oven

That Isn't Turkey, Sorry

She's Pretty

Is She Eating Her Kid?!

What a Cute Sexy Hat

Who Knew Frosty Was a Pilgrim?!

Ew, What Are the Dark Spots?

As Opposed To... ?

<![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. What are the best episodes of "Between Two Ferns" with Zach Galifianakis? Click through the list below to find out!

<![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 Medieval Warrior
To this costume's credit, it at least appears to consist of actual body armor, a big-ass sword, and some stuff on the arms that looks like it's possibly supposed to represent chain mail. The stripper heels and floor-length skirt seem likely to cause some embarrassment and possible mortality on the battlefield, though.
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 Girl Scout
Aside from how skeevy it is to sexualize underage girls, the very skeeviness of the costume makes it sort of confusing conceptually, since basically anyone drawn to a scantily clad woman impersonating an eight-year-old girl will just look like a perv anyway, and would therefore, logically, be very disinclined, for self-preservational reasons, to attempt to buy any cookies.
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 Firefighter
Exposed thighs and open flames just seem like a bad combination to us. Also, we're not sure what kind of material that halter shirt is made out of, but whatever it is, we can tell just from looking at it that it will instantly melt and fuse with your skin if it's ever exposed to heat.
Sexy Member of a S.W.A.T. Team
Maybe we're being old-fashioned, but we always thought SWAT team members were supposed to wear bulletproof vests and other forms of protective clothing that would shield them from showers of white-hot, deadly bullets. On the upside, at least this outfit has pants.
Sexy Pirate
We had planned to make fun of this costume's ridiculous high-heeled knee boots, lace-corseted bodice, and ruffled princess sleeves before coming to the sober realization that this is actually how a lot of actual pirates (and French noblemen, generally) actually dressed themselves. This is probably the most realistic costume on the entire list. Contemplate that.
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?"
Mother Mary Rover and Sister Polybark
Perhaps these two may have some "bad habits" (slipper chewing, cat chasing) so they've been dressed as the Flying Nun and made to spell out their "Hail Mary's" with stones, since barking them is unacceptable. Where the heck is St. Francis when he is needed most?
A Regal Lion
Just because domestic cats share genetic material with lions doesn't mean we should make them wear fake fur headdresses and rub it in that they're not really king of the jungle, right?
Mother Goose Dog
Hey... remember that one Mother Goose nursery rhyme about the dog who really, really loves being dressed up like Mother Goose for Halloween? Yeah. Neither do we.
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 Most Sheepish Sheep
It's entirely fitting that any dog in this costume would feel sheepish!
Mr. T and His Gold Chains
Mr. T dog says "I pity the fool who tries to make me dress up next year."
Do. Or do not. There is no trying to forget that your owner has dressed you up in this silly costume.
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.

Harry Reid
"One problem that I've had today is keeping my Wongs straight."

Harry Reid (Democrat) doesn't just lead the majority in the U.S. Senate, he also has great Asian jokes! Nevada Senator Reid later said he regretted using the zingers in front of this mostly-Asian crowd in Vegas.

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.

Rick Santorum
"Look, I understand why campaigns and all of you want to go out and just bang the president. It's fun."

Rick Santorum (Republican) told the Iowa State GOP Convention that he totally gets why politicians of his party criticize Obama. The former senator from Pennsylvania and second-place 2012 Republican presidential nominee just happens to have poor word choice, especially given his anti-gay rhetoric.


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.

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.
