Well, someone is spray painting condoms on graffiti dicks in London

Graffiti penises are “outdoor decor” you probably think you’d rather not encounter. But a safer sex advocate from the UK might just change your mind on that.

An anonymous 28-year-old Londoner is raising awareness of sexually transmitted infections and the importance of protection by spray painting condoms on graffiti penises. Yes, you heard that right. And it’s damn genius.

Sure, it’s technically illegal. But it’s also a pretty genius way of starting a conversation about safer sex.

“One night I did some research on STI rates, and then the idea just came to me to make stencils of a condom and a link where people can get free condoms then I just went out and did it,” the man, who is an art director by day, told BuzzFeed.

The condom artist has been at it since April, with each fluorescent condom accompanied by the URL for Shine, a reproductive health organization in London providing free STI screenings and free condoms through six National Health Service clinics.

So far, he’s added about 20 dicks to his portfolio.

The creative process is basically a graffiti dick scavenger hunt. Wherever the condom vigilante sees a spray painted penis already in place, he adds a condom. Simple as that.

“If there’s going to be cocks scattered everywhere that nobody wants to see, we might as well have people learn something from the cocks,” he told Buzzfeed.

In 2015, there were approximately 435,000 diagnoses of STIs made in England, mostly impacting straight youth under 25 and men who have sex with men.

The mystery artist has been particularly focused on spreading his message to youth because he noticed many of the graffiti dicks were at school bus stops. Shocking.

“It just shouldn’t be the norm to just have your wang out, especially unprotected,” he told Buzzfeed. “I just thought it sent the wrong message.”

The anonymous man-on-a-mission recently started an Instagram to document his safer sex project called @protectcitycocks. And while the creative effort is pretty goofy and giggle-worthy, the artist hopes it spreads a serious message.

“I just hope that this has some positive impact and that it could get more people to use condoms and eventually help lower the STI rates,” he said.

Insert cheeky “no glove, no love” joke here.

We get cat cafes, but this rat cafe goes too far

Enjoy the scurrying rats with your coffee.

With the exception of the Pixar film Ratatouille, rats and dining never go together. Never.

But a San Francisco tourist attraction is featuring the rodents at a pop-up cafe and charging people money to experience the potential health code violation.

The San Francisco Dungeon, an immersive show and history lesson aimed at tourists, announced its Rat Cafe popping up for only two days in July.

For $50 (that includes admission to the rest of the show) cafe-goers can sip coffee while surrounded by rats. It’s supposed to be an intentionally confusing experience: sit in a nice bistro-style eatery with a Barbary Coast theme with rats scurrying around.

It’s an all-you can-drink coffee buffet, so no food can be snatched by hungry rats. But still.

The rats are all reportedly up for adoption through the Bay Area nonprofit Rattie Ratz, a group that rescues and rehabilitates rats. So if you bond with a cafe rat you can bring him or her home. The ultimate souvenir.

Here’s what it’ll take for Republicans to actually impeach Trump

For President Trump, every new day brings a new impeachable offense.

The list of seemingly impeachable crimes grows by the minute one second, he’s leaking secrets to a foreign adversary, the next, he’s openly admitting to obstruction of justice on national television. But contrary to what you may have heard from the lamestream media, Congressional Republicans aren’t afraid of him.

They’re more than willing to impeach the president, assuming he commits what they consider an impeachable offense.

Below are a list of crimes that Congressional Republicans would consider impeachable offenses. Of course, they’d need a large number of votes to secure impeachment, including the House and two thirds of the Senate. If Trump commits one of these offenses, however, they’ll courageously push forward their Oath is to the Constitution, not the President.

1. Destroys 90 percent of the civilized world

Let’s be honest: do we really need 100 percent of the Western world? Who’s really going to miss Luxembourg?

If President Trump wants to destroy most of the civilized world, that’s completely within his Constitutional right but once he starts going after their Caribbean all-inclusives, they will consider a strong talking-to.

2. Instead of shooting someone on Fifth Avenue, tries to give them health insurance

If President Trump wants to shoot someone on Fifth Avenue, that’s absolutely within his jurisdiction as president. Were he to try and give them actual insurance, that would be considered extreme executive overreach and an impeachable offense.

3. Says something nice about Hillary

Hating Hillary Clinton is the GOP’s only consistent policy position over the last 20 years. They’re not going to allow Trump to go rogue on this one.

4. Uses the nuclear weapon arsenal to destroy the sun

The moon? No problem. Losing the sun, however, will affect the tan lines they’ve spent their whole career building. Impeach!

5. Jeopardizes their chance for re-election

As president, Trump has the right to do whatever the hell he wants. If, however, the president in any way effects the party’s chances for re-election, Congress retains the right to impeach him and replace him with someone way hotter.

6. Dies

The GOP will gladly take up articles of impeachment once Trump is already dead.

7. Commits to what he promised during the election

If Trump actually tries to rebuild the manufacturing sector or protect Medicare and Social Security or try to give healthcare to everyone, that will be considered an impeachable offense.

8. Lets his approval rating drop below 30 percent

Low approval ratings are an impeachable offense, per an article written by Paul Ryan on Medium.

9. Goes to jail

If the President goes to jail, Congress will potentially consider articles of impeachment if and only if it prevents him from signing their executive orders.

10. Raises their taxes

The founding fathers dreamed of a country free of estate taxes and rich with capital gains loopholes. If Trump does anything that affects their personal incomes, or the assets of lobbyists they care about, that is a sure sign that he has gone too far, and that he will be removed from office once and for all.

Maybe.

Dude’s pic with Paul Ryan promptly enters the trolling hall of fame

On Saturday, Twitter user @minnysconsin tweeted a photo of himself with House Speaker Paul Ryan at a Kiwanis Club fundraiser in Wisconsin.

It seems, though, that Ryan did not notice (or just ignored) this man’s T-shirt, which reads “Repeal and go f*ck yourself.” (It’s from the Pod Save America podcast merch page, BTW.)

The end result? A solid troll reminiscent of that Kellyanne Conway video we all know and love.

Just as a reminder, the House narrowly passed the latest incarnation of the American Health Care Act this week, effectively putting women, the LGBT community, people of color, people with disabilities, sexual assault survivors, and legions of other humans at risk. So this troll is well-deserved!

And internet denizens including the Pod Save America dudes appear pleased.

Good goin’, bro.

We’re all this lady dropping her pizza on the train

We’ve all had days like this.

I mean, I can’t say with 100 percent certainty that this hasn’t happened to me.

The tweet is from BBC reporter James Longman, who witnessed this tragic tableau on the train at 8 a.m. As some people noted, this would look absolutely beautiful hanging in a museum somewhere.

Aesthetic value aside, the picture also presents mankind with a dilemma: Would you eat the pizza?

ZOOM AND ENHANCE.

The sad, hungry people of the internet reached a pretty clear consensus.

Studies vary as to whether the five-second rule is really a thing. Also, the floor of the Tube probably isn’t the cleanest surface in the world. But there’s nothing like a thin, greasy piece of paper to make us feel better about eating pizza off the ground.

May your legend live on forever, pizza lady.
