While originally Halloween was mostly celebrated in the US as well as in Canada (other Christian countries would honor their dead in a less marketing-tainted way), the euphoria slowly gained in amplitude on the world-wide scale, and can now be observed in countries such as Australia, Mexico or Japan as well as all through Europe.
Evidently, no way were we going to give-up on the occasion to offer you some treats & spooks, so please feel free to buckle up and take a spin down PMSLweb lane – Wishing you a fun & sinister trip!
Only a few days to go before Halloween comes knocking at your door, and by Halloween we mean troops of dedicated vampires, witches, pumpkins and other creepy folks… but not only!
These days creativity seems to be the name of the game, and you truly never really know what to expect when the door bell rings; you could end up face to face with a mechanical robot, one of the characters of your favorite TV shows or even a pot plant. Nonetheless, it always ends up to be for our greatest pleasure and can lead to brilliant giggles.
So what have you decided to trick or treat as this year? If your mind isn’t set yet, here’s our selection of funny Halloween costumes for the year, and the latter could be a wonderful source of inspiration for sure!
Wishing you a giggle-packed PMSLweb moment!
Last year we had treated you to a first collection of pictures dedicated to the Star Wars saga, and the time has now come to release our Episode II.
What’s the latest news on the Star Wars front? Well for those who would have somehow missed out on this important piece of info, since our last post Disney purchased Lucasfilm for a price of 4 Billion dollars and shortly after the firm revealed that a new trilogy would see the day as from 2015. No need to say that the announcement has “slightly” rattled the Star Wars lovers, whom aren’t really sure what approach to give to a trilogy not conducted by George Lucas …
Even though evidently Walt Disney studios are far from being noobs and are well-known for releasing breath-taking motion pictures, how faithful will they be to the real deal, how will the fans react and is the saga in danger? Only time will tell I guess.
In the meantime, a casting leak reveals a few hints regarding who will feature in Episode VII, see for yourself:
- Late-teen female, independent, good sense of humour, fit.
- Young twenty-something male, witty and smart, fit but not traditionally good looking.
- A late twentysomething male, fit, handsome and confident.
- Seventy-something male, with strong opinions and tough demeanour. Also doesn’ t need to be particularly fit.
- A second young female, also late teens, tough, smart and fit.
- Forty something male, fit, military type.
- Thirtysomething male, intellectual. Apparently doesn’t need to be fit.
But for now back to our collection of Star Wars goodies; we have split the latter into 3 categories, Knowledge & Humor being the first 2, then with Christmas less than 3 months away, we’ve added a selection of possible Star Wars prezzies that could find their place (or not) under any purists Christmas tree this year.
Wishing you a force-tainted PMSLweb moment!

Wishing you an intriguing PMSLweb moment!

For 40$ you can experience the thrill of having to put 3 puzzle pieces into the correct slots in order to mute the device.
You’re a “die hard”?

Finger Food Plates
While we all get a kick out of finger food during parties & receptions, what we enjoy slightly less is having to walk around holding party toasts and others once we get dragged into a passionate debate for instance. Not only do most of us end up with anchovy cream all over our fingers as a result of the timeless snack gripping – and while we can be tempted to stick the whole thing into our mouths our interlocutors may not really enjoy the sight – but in case we need to urgently top up our glass we are then left with only one vacant hand. This dilemma can be corrected once and for all thanks to the “Finger Food Plates”. Fred & Friends 10 pieces reusable plastic finger/plate set is sold for around 10$.
Have you ever been tempted by a tattoo but have ruled out the idea as you are not ready to commit for life?

No doubt that this gadget will find its public!
