14 Weirdly Specific Obsessions Hidden in Famous Works of Art

I don’t really think you can describe Giger’s obsession with genitals as ‘hidden’, Cracked.

I was gonna reply it’s as secret as Hitchcock’s obsession with Blondes but I clicked through and they did that too. They didn’t even pick Giger’s most phallic compositions. They posted a picture that was nothing but dicks and they still didn’t post his most penile works.
Like this Dune worm sucking a penis:

Or this penis made of dead babies:

Or the Erotomechanics painting I won’t even post that’s nothing but a gargantuan penis.
My parents didn’t like my youthful interest in Giger at all.

Sometimes I remind myself that I almost skipped the party, that I almost went to a different college, that the whim of a minute could have changed everything and everyone. Our lives, so settled, so specific, are built on happenstance. Anna Quindlen, Every Last One (via insanity-and-vanity)

A personal proposal to pants purveyors.*

And thanks to our Patreon patrons, this isn’t even the last ChaosLife of the week! Thanks everyone and stay tuned!

*Of course, we know it’s possible to find women’s jeans with real pockets, but it shouldn’t be as ridiculously hard as it is, should it?

Apparently, ants have a clear colored abdomen – something that photographer Mohamed Babu and his wife discovered one day when they noticed a “white ant” that was crawling along their counter. It turns out, the ant had just consumed a drop of milk that was left on the counter, turning his lower half white. The photographer set up a variety of colored water pools and patiently waited until the ants consumed the liquid to show their colored abdomens.
