*Every day, The Carper spends hours scouring the internet so you don’t have to. That being said, we come across some really cool shit that requires no caption or commentary. At 5:30pm every week day, we will post the “Coolest Thing You’ll See All Day” (or “CTYSAD”), which you will find is a pretty friggin’ accurate description. So, without further ado, THIS:

Mel Gibson Makes Understatement of the Year by Dutch

HuffPost – Mel Gibson must know that the first step in changing your ways is admitting you have a problem.

“Maybe you don’t know this about me — I’ve got a little bit of a temper,” Gibson said with a laugh on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” referring to his much-publicized confrontation with screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, the most recent in a growing number of leaked tapes of the actor’s curse-filled rants.

“I’ve got a little bit of a temper” No.  Bob Knight has a little bit of a temper compared to you Mel.  Christian Bale has a little bit of a temper.  You my friend, are off the reservation with your shit.  And I know he was joking, but it’s so fucked that he can do this shit and then go on Leno, have a few chuckles and plug his new movie.

If I had done this, I would have lost my job, my wife would leave me, and my friends would ostracize me.  Actually, that part about my friends isn’t true, they would have thought it was hilarious.  But in any case, I guess I can’t be mad at one of the most iconic actors of our time.

P.S. “Payback” was the TRUTH.

Nets logo designers are about as good at designing as Nets are at basketball by Flama Blanca

via – The Brooklyn Nets unveiled their logo(s) this weekend, and Jesus Christ somebody needs to get fired. Do you see this? Don’t adjust the color on your screens, because that shit is black and white. I guess Jigga and the Mad Russion realize they have a sunken cost of an investment on their hands. Apparently its a “tribute to the old New York subway signage system”. To me, it looks like they couldn’t afford color.

When LA baseball actually fans pay attention to the game by Flama Blanca

In a moment that will live on forever, two LA Dodgers fans had the wherewithall to display their bare asses for all of America to see. Bryce Harper, he of the retardedly priced rookie card, collected his first Major League hit. I love these guys for making the double he launched to centerfield the least interesting part of the story. I hope they save up some cash so they can sit behind the plate for ARod’s 700th home run.

This is EXACTLY what needed to happen on the site of the WTC. A 1,776 (nicely done) foot middle finger pointing East.
