Copyright is a hell of a beast, so these toy manufacturers threw some toys together with dollop of word salad to try to squeeze in as much brand recognition as possible without having to deal with any of that pesky legal infringement for their amazing and ridiculous bootlegs. Like Beasts by Mr. Dre, Mike shoes or Dulcho and Garbanzo bags, the world of knockoff and of brands is rich and varied.

This guy really went all the way with his commitment toward creating an astounding Knex rollercoaster in his backyard. The result speaks for itself. It's awesome how the rollercoaster is just slow enough to look that much more real.

Mom Accidentally Ignites The Great Penguin Debacle

Poor mom was just trying to keep the peace amidst her kid having a bit of a breakdown over a toy penguin. Regardless of whether or not the penguin that mom swapped out was actually identical to the other one, it managed to gain disapproval from her husband. The moral judges of Reddit's AITA community seem to be in agreement that mom wasn't in the wrong.

Tumblr Story: The Terribly Misunderstood Evil Chancellor Traytor

This hilarious Tumblr story centers on a childhood game that a couple kids would play with their respective action figures. Unfortunately, within that league of action figures was a horribly misunderstood lad named Evil Chancellor Traytor. The poor homie would regularly fill out his diary with his various wholesome escapades, while other action figures in the community were busy badmouthing him behind his back. The Chancellor just couldn't overcome his name. It's a true shame.
