I love Free flash greeting cards. Special thanks to the viewer, Stanley, who sent me the Halloween card.
Tiger Woods? More like Cheetah Woods!
Our favorite golfer continues his epic fail as more women step forward and say he cheated on his wife with them. There are reports that Tiger Woods’ wife is leaving him. Tiger Woods Ambulance has become a hot search topic because more Tiger Woods breaking news struck last night when his mother-in-law was taken away in ambulance. It has been all over the Breaking US News sites. The drama surrounding him is spiraling out of control. I never imagined Cheetah would fall from grace so hard so fast. (That’s what she said.)
Apparently the world’s best golfer had multiple Fails when he wrecked his Escalade into a tree and a fire hydrant. Some say he was having an affair with Rachel Uchitel. You can view that as a win or a fail; I’ll leave that up to you. Here’s a link about the Tiger Woods car accident .
Here’s my favorite Tiger Woods picture, courtesy of FunnyBackgroundPictures.com
The site has a brand new look, just in time for Christmas. Smiles all round I hope.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â
You should be able to find fails much faster now with a new search box in the top right, better pagination, related fail links, and a new Twitter feed.
EpicÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â failÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â win!

And keep the awesome submissions coming (remember to add your fail caption onto the image BEFORE you send it, I don’t have time to caption images for you)…
Speaking of which, any programmers up for building a simple Fail-builder in the style of the Lol-cat builder?
Big up to the Times Magazine which featured an article on ‘Fail’ in their Microtrends section today:
A year ago, the top stupid internet trend was the LOLcat (take picture of cat, add amusing, badly spelt caption, repeat). In 2008, the world economy is faltering and the happy LOLcat has been replaced with one ubiquitous word: FAIL.
The format is simple: an image of human (or animal) hubris or stupidity, with the word FAIL written across it. It evolved in message boards and forums. The term ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œfailÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â (and its opposite, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œwinÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â) has been around for a long time, but FAILcats (for want of a better word) have only been popular for a few months. The superlative of ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œfailÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â is ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œEpic FailÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â.
Somehow they got the impression that Shipment of Fail was theÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â first fail blog…Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â (Fail! It wasn’t, but you already knew that), but overall I would say i’s a fairly hefty shipment of sucess all round Although I don’t think LOLcats are anywhere near on their way out yet…
