Tumblr User Follows Bob Ross with MS Paint And It Actually Works

Alright, this is downright, straight up, all around impressive. And the final result was good enough that you could tell the trees were pretty happy. Tumblr users are a creative bunch, doing stuff like writing an alien invasion story where the aliens are fought off by wildlife or expounding on wacky historical facts. Seriously, following along with MS Paint is brilliant and highly commendable.

Funny Tumblr Thread Explains Disney's Mythical Secret Porn Vault

According to this thread, Disney's strict policy that grants them exclusive ownership of any of their employees artwork also gives them the rights to any of the filth that those artists also end up creating as well. We hope Disney has a smut vault/porn cave, but it seems unlikely whether or not they would officially confirm the existence of such a thing. Tumblr has come through with some weird cartoon lore, like this dark thread on Garfield. Tumblr users also share some pretty incredible experiences, like this pizza deliverer who made a list of all the insane people she met.

21 Strange and Inventive Ways They Made Sound Effects For Classic Scenes

We like learning how our favorite movies achieved their astounding visual effects, but sound effects can make or break the tone of a movie. It's pretty cool to think that it's someone's job to figure out what it would sound like for a mooshy robot body to be pushed through metal bars. What's even more interesting is that they decided it would sound like dog food sliding out of a can.

In terms of choosing beggars this ableist takes the cake for being a terrible display of a human being. Upon learning that the artist has autism, the choosing beggar angrily demands a refund on the grounds that the artist has autism. You've got to be kidding me!

Elon Musk Gets Squashed On Twitter For Saying Artists Shouldn't Be Credited For Their Work

This one makes zero sense, Elon Musk. Was the intention with this series of incendiary tweets to get people riled up? That seems like the only possibility, cause people were bound to get all kinds of fired up. Don't credit artists...okay then Elon Musk, okay then.

Viral Conversation Spawns Too Many Vegetable Artist Memes

Old but gold and also weird. Last year a facebook post of this strange conversation featured an apparently very defensive James Barrett's wife taking over JB's facebook account to deliver a prickly message to someone whose only crime was planning to draw vegetables. Anyway the lack of context, unbridled aggression and overt weirdness caused it to be shared thousands of times. Plus, it spawned a bunch of memes. It became the viral sensation known as "James Barret's Wife"

This is just so goddamn weird. We've all had awkward meetings before but the level of BS going on makes it almost hard to breath. You can tell he's trying, but everything about the situation is so unnatural that no one is really sure of where to go with it. Someone, take an improv class.

Freeloader Trying To Get Her Artist Friend To Work For Free Loses Her Sh*t When Things Don't Go Her Way

This one was doomed for an irrational meltdown from the onset. Freeloaders have a tendency to emotionally implode when money comes into the mix. No time like the present for that reality check though. Can't put a price on how necessary that is!

Twitter Is Spoofing the Hell out of Coachella's Lineup

Coachella has released their lineup for this year, and twitter was there with their response. People thought up some pretty interesting and specific acts. Not much of a Coachella person, but would pay to see Sandra Bullock in a blindfold, just kinda wandering around.
