Well, it is Labor Day, so we are relaxing and having fun. We recently came across this collection of amazing tattoos inspired by children's movies -- what better way to pay tribute to those movies you spent worshiping during your formative years than get them permanently inked on your body?

It was bound to happen. The world's largest soup company, Campbell's, is set to release (at Target no less) limited-edition Andy Warhol inspired soup cans to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Warhol's infamous Campbell's soup can art.

Use only in earthquake emergencies.
