Fail Time with FAIL Blog's Ben Huh

Fail Time with FAIL Blogger Ben Huh

We live it, we love it and we say it: FAIL. Life is full of epic fails, and fortunately for us, there's only one blog out there that documents it all.

Attack of the Blog! spoke with FAIL Blog founder, Ben Huh, who also runs other viral sites like I Can Haz Cheezburger, Graph Jam and Engrish Funny, to talk about being a part of the 2009 fail meme and his favorite videogames. (Sorry, readers, I don't think he's a Sony fanboy.)

You successfully brought about the Lolcat meme with the I Can Has Cheezburger site. What sparked you to create FailBlog.org?

Technically, I didn't create it, although it was a rather unknown site before we bought it. Simply put, I thought it was a funny site and I wanted to branch out beyond I Can Has Cheezburger. We're now up to almost 30 websites, including Hawtness.com and UgliestTattoos.com, both slightly NSFW.

AOTS Visits SEMA '09

AOTS Visits SEMA '09

Attack of the Show isn't just for geeks who only think of videogames, crazy gadgets and fax machines. Sometimes we like to nerd out over other things, like cars. You know, those things that go "vroom" and you can race in Forza Motorsport 3?

Blair Herter geeks out over the latest car gadgets at SEMA 2009 in Las Vegas, where he was able to check out the hottest tools, automotive components and designs available for those who like to take their cars to the next level. He also uncovers the new Lexus LFA that gives Ferrari and Lamborghini some serious competition, and checks out a modified Scion truck with the Kiwi Wifi.

Find out what else he discovered at SEMA in tonight's Attack of the Show live at 7:00pm EST.

Behind the People of People of Walmart

Oh, People of Walmart. Your blog exists to remind us what the United States of America is really about: not freedom, not the right to bear arms, but good deals, better personalities and the best class you can find around the world.

Attack of the Blog! recently caught up with the trio behind People of Walmart, a hilarious site dedicated to showing the world all the weird, strange, and downright "is that for real?" customers of America's shopping supercenters. Check out what Luke Wherry, Andrew Kipple and Adam Kipple had to say about their viral phenomenon.

How did you guys get started on the People of Walmart site?
The three of us needed some stuff at our local South Carolina Walmart. So we headed out on a Saturday around 2 p.m. or so. We were walking through the dairy section and saw an overweight woman wearing a pink tube top, short shorts with her ass hanging out, stripper boots, and her 3 year old was on one of those child leashes. A light bulb went off.

What do think it is that draws these characters to Walmart? There are just so many Walmarts across the country that you are bound to see a few crazies every once in a while. Apparently it happens a lot more often than one may think!

They say it's the simple things in life that make it worth living. We assume by "simple things" they mean "Around the Net." That's the only way the expression makes sense. After all, videos featuring a ballroom dancing Spider-Man, violent turkeys and wizard minstrels who love Zelda are the only things that make life livable and those elements are the basis of ATN.

Ride 'em RODEM Wheelchairs

Ride 'em RODEM Wheelchairs

If there was anything left to reinvent, a wheelchair probably wouldn't cross your mind. I mean, come on. It's got a chair and two four wheels. What more could you do with it?

Japan (as always) thought otherwise with their new RODEM, a new wheelchair designed so people can now straddle their chairs like a cushioned scooter bike and maneuver around the world with a joystick and all-wheel drive. Hmm, someone's been playing too many videogames.

Riding this around definitely looks more fun, especially when you're wearing your favorite gray flannel pajamas.
