Weird Website(s) of the Week: Sad Don Drapers Love to Party

Today's weird website is a two-fer, and they're both equally weird. The first is a site called Panda Loves to Party, which is entirely comprised of non-photoshopped photographs of pandas devouring birthday cakes and wearing party hats and generally yukking it up (despite being in captivity). We swear, this website doesn't exist just to make people feel better about jailing pandas so we can look at them in zoos.

The next website is something I can just barely grasp, it is so strange and post-whatever and meta-whatever. It's called Sad Don Draper and it features one cut-out screengrab of Don Draper from an episode of Mad Men I haven't seen, and inserts it into all manner of weird/bizarrely appropriate contexts, and/or makes odd animated gifs out of them, as per the below:

I think the image above may have something to do with my post from yesterday.

Don't Have Space For a Christmas Tree? Decorate a Pineapple Instead

Christmas trees aren't for everyone. Some people can't fit a fir inside their cramped abodes, while others are turned off by the expense, or by the idea of bugs hitchhiking their way inside. Fake trees are always an option, but a new trend sweeping Instagram—pineapples as mini-Christmas "trees"—might convince you to forego the forest vibe for a more tropical aesthetic.

As Thrillist reports, the pineapple-as-Christmas-tree idea appears to have originated on Pinterest before it, uh, ripened into a social media sensation. Transforming a pineapple into a Halloween “pumpkin” requires carving and tea lights, but to make the fruit festive for Christmas all one needs are lights, ornaments, swaths of garland, and any other tiny tchotchkes that remind you of the holidays. The final result is a tabletop decoration that's equal parts Blue Hawaii and Miracle on 34th Street.

In need of some decorating inspiration? Check out a variety of “Christmas tree” pineapples below.
