If this doesn’t bother your sense of order, or the way things should be (I’m not going to go as far as mentioning OCD, but you might), you’ll find something else that will in an imgur album full of photos with something wrong. Taken as a group, they’re pretty funny -up to the point where [...]

Show Mom your nerdy side by sending her one of these comic book inspired Mother’s Day cards, she might not get the reference but I’m sure she’ll appreciate the gesture! Some of these cards are a bit maudlin, but considering that a parent’s death is often what spurs a hero into action their darkly comedic tone [...]
