Chika chika chika bop paaaaaa

Oh, sorry, I was just typing out the theme from the classic Nicktoon Doug. Remember Doug? It was that show about a boring middle schooler, which was somehow really compelling. 

Well, one of the things that gave that show its charms was the sound effects. From the scatty theme song to all those nasally characters, Doug was just as well known for its sound as its look. 

Great Big Story sat down with the man behind it all. Fred Newman is a voice over artist who made all those sounds with his mouth. He asl odid voices for Harry and the HndersonsWho Framed Roger Rabbit?, and, everybody's favorite movie, Gremlins

So if you ever watched Doug and wanted to know how all those sounds were made, this is the video for you.

Everyone knows that the Oscars were a total disaster

But how can we make sure that that doesn't happen again? Better typeface. 

No, that doesn't mean replacing all type with Comic Sans, it means making things easier to read. This includes making everything from voting to taking your medicine easier to do. And it's really easy to do. Wouldn't that be great? It might even prevent this.

This video from Vox breaksdown how typeface affects readers and monsterous, world-changing consequences, but also how easy it would be to change these things. 

This little girl is doing the lord's work. 

People have been making jokes about the Pope's hats for forever, but how many of us have actually done something about them? This little girl took things into her own hands. 

This little girl met the Pope and stole his hat. That's right: The Pope's hat. It wasn't the big one, but it's still pretty cool, especially how sneaky she was about it. Check this out.

“Keeping food on the table… That’s the reason I can’t quit. Keeping Wifi and cable. Otherwise no one would babysit.”

So, uhh, like when does the album drop dudes? Whoever has these legends as dads should consider themselves infinitely blessed. 

Following a horrific attack at UK Parliament on Wednesday morning, March 22nd; a monumentally oblivious and insensitive douchecanoe was photographed trying to get his selfie action in at the chaotic scene of the crime. The attack which has since been labeled a terrorist attack by officials, left 20 injured as well. If this idiot's goal was to skyrocket to the top of Internet's Most Loathed Narcissists List...then mission accomplished, broheme.

Double standards, the world is rife with them. Most of the double standards we experience in a day probably don't even bother us or even make us raise an eyebrow anymore.

You probably make it though your day ignoring all these minor injustices and whatnot just fine, but without fail there's always going to be at least one thng that drives you insane. 

In a recent /r/askreddit thread people spilled the beans.

Yet another dating-themed trending Twitter hashtag has surfaced; and this one centers on people unforgivingly sharing the intimate faults, quirks, and otherwise helpless personality traits of their exes, in a fine display of not leaving the past in the past. Can't help but give a shoutout to the scathing tweet that draws a savage parallel between bacon and someone else's ex.
