    Mall Cops Call Actual Cops On Carousel-Riding Cosplayers

    Mall cops in San Diego did nothing to improve the reputation of their hilarious profession this month when they evicted a small group of steam punk cosplayers from the Westfield Plaza Camino Real shopping center in Carlsbad--and then called actual cops on the "riff raff."

    Ryan Brooks must have a lot of time on his hands, because he's been hard at work making his own authentic Mark III Iron Man suit. Well, not totally authentic -- it's not made of iron, or any kind of metal. It's all plastic, because he 3D prints them. Oh my god, what? Is this actually Tony Stark or something?

    Astronaut Luca Parmitano Wins Halloween

    We saw great Halloween costumes this year. There was this cosplay party in Toronto. Patrick Stewart even dressed as a lobster and got in a bathtub, but we're prepared to call it: Luca Parmitano wins Halloween 2013. While on board the International Space Station, he donned a Superman costume. Beat that! You can't, because you're not in space.

    Oompa Loompas Plead Guilty in Street Fight, This Really Happened

    We always knew the Oompa Loompas had a mean streak in them, so we're not surprised to hear that two Oompa Loompas have been charged for their part in a brawl outside a nightclub. We were surprised to find out that it was actually just two guys dressed as Oompa Loompas, and not real Oompa Loompas, because Oompa Loompas aren't real.
