In Case You Missed It

This post is dedicated to failing, or as many of us say today, EPIC FAIL. Now of course what first comes to mind when you bring together failing and ze Internet is FAIL blog.FAIL blog is a hilariously funny blog which posts pictures of people, places and things that are just…failing. I’ve inserted a slideshow here of a few I liked so you can see what I mean, as there really is no way to describe it, you just have to see them for yourself. FAIL blog is just once again a case of the Internet mocking real life and how truly goofy humans are.

My second act of FAIL today is an article I found about the creator of the Fail Whale. In case you don’t know what that is, Fail Whale is the whale picture that comes up when you can’t get something to work on Twitter, as seen below.

People all over have fallen in love with the Fail Whale image, in fact there is even now a Fail Whale martini! As the article states, Yiyung Lu, the Fail Whale creator, originally created the image as a birthday e-card for her friends and did not even have a Twitter when the company first came across the image and asked her if they could use it for their site. She later went on to create the Foul Owl image for Twitter, also seen here, which comes up when a suspicious account is suspended.

Read the article if you would like to learn more, and happy failing!
