Bonobos Shorts
SHORTS STORY

Bonobos Shorts

The guys behind Bonobos' excellent-fitting trousers have just introduced their first line of shorts. They're available in two lengths—the standard nine-inch inseam or seven inches, for those looking to show a little leg. (We're not here to judge.)

Set Editions Mercy Cards
CARD SHARKS

Set Editions Mercy Cards

Because "sorry" is the hardest word to say, why bother saying it at all? Instead, try one of these cards. With inscriptions like "I don't even know what we're arguing about" and "You are right I am wrong," they might just save your relationship. Or destroy it.

MUG SHOT

The Chug Mug

Hey, what's Mother's Day without a chugging contest? This handy stein—which holds up to 60 ounces of frosty brew—comes with a meter on the outside that measures the depth of your chug. This year, just this once, let Mom win, all right?

Shatnerquake by Jeff Burk
O CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN

Shatnerquake by Jeff Burk

Summer's must-read cult novel concerns the so-called Campbellians—worshippers of Army of Darkness star Bruce Campbell—who set off an explosion that somehow brings all of William Shatner's characters into the real(-ish) world. Those characters—from Cpt. Kirk to T.J. Hooker—all want to kill the real Shatner. Awesomeness ensues.
