It Must Be The Economy: Awful DIY Iron Man CosPlay

Gee, multibillionaire arms dealer Tony Stark is probably so poor his latest suit is made of tape and—art paper? Probably carries it in a plastic garbage bag too.

Ha! The good news is the man in the picture isn’t Tony Stark. The bad news is that craptastic suit he’s in is still real. Turns out that the cosplayer pictured below has garnered enough laughs to go viral. Real name is unknown and as for his, er, cretaion–like they say, there’s no accounting for good taste.

Canadian Pop Singer Pays Tribute To Optimus Prime (Video)

In the annals of odd music, James Struthers’ latest single ranks…somewhere. Titled ‘You, Me, and Optimus Prime,’ the chill out track inspired a music video where a young man gets to enjoy outdoor escapades with the Autobot stalwart.
