We caught up with Maggie Robertson, the actor who played the part of Lady Dimitrescu in RE8, to see how she reacted to this massive influx of attention toward her and her character over the last few months, as well as how the role came about. During our discussion, Robertson shared her thoughts on acting in a video game for the first time, dealing with her newfound fanbase and even some of her favorite Lady D memes. So without further ado, here's the scoop on the tall vampire lady from Lady Dimitrescu herself.

Creative Posts From Internet Poets

Was "reading more" one of your failed New Year's resolutions? Well, we're going to let you in on a little secret: you don't have to buy books to indulge in the creativity of wordsmiths. Turns out that you can consume clever witticisms all over the internet. You just have to know where to look. Fortunately, the subreddit r/brandnewsentence makes that mission a little easier. It's a veritable hub of quirky writing that's been harvested from Twitter, Tumblr, and even the dreaded hellscape that is Facebook. We've put together some of their finest examples of creative writing, but there's loads more where these came from. Hell, they may even inspire you to get a little more funky with your own posts. Go crazy. We're here for a good time, not a boring time.

Funny memes, tweets, and tumblr posts collected from Reddit, r/brandnewsentence | Molly Hodgdon @Manglewood His kiss slow, but firm and unyielding like an old man backing his Lincoln Town OCar over handicapped parking sign. | Dylan Sprouse @dylansprouse Happy two year anniversary. Here's us looking more alike with each passing year until single beast with four arms and four legs runs at top speed 50mph and screams like baboon at nearby travelers trespassing into our woods many more!

Back in 2012, London-based artist and taxidermist Adele Morse received a fox that met its end in a bear trap, left to fade away into the forest floor before it was packed in a box and shipped to her door. Giving it a new take on life, Morse decided to use the fox while honing her craft but found its mangled carcass less than ideal and troublesome to work with. Nevertheless, she did come up with something, although even she admitted it was a face only a mother could love, and thus the Stoned Fox was born. 

Sitting in obscurity before being auctioned off online, Morse's creation would send her on a whirlwind journey of insane events no one could've predicted, from death threats to Russian media attention that almost labeled her as a spy from MI5. To hear this enthralling tale, we caught up with her to dig into the full backstory of the Stoned Fox meme, as well as what she's currently up to.

About half of us were first exposed to now-famous superhero comics via out-of-context comic panels used as internet memes, but we looked up the original issues and those memes are actually UNDERSELLING the glorious stupidity and insanity of the original stories. Stories like the Joker's "boner" fixation, Captain America's public "wanking," and the time Batman got slap-happy with his little buddy.

Twitter Users Share Funny & Fascinating Tales From Their Ancestry

If you go back far enough in your genealogy, chances are there are a few interesting stories that are worthy of being shared with family members, friends - or even Twitter. Yesterday, we were hit with the motherlode of ancestral anecdotes on the Bird App, thanks to Jamie Schler. In a viral tweet, the writer asked her fellow Twitter users to share their odd and cool tidbits of genealogical lore. And boy did the people deliver. The tales span centuries, from the Revolutionary War all the way to the misguided war in Vietnam. While they vary in tone (sad, funny, haunting), the stories share a common thread: being cool as hell. We've put a few of our favorite of the Twitter tales in this gallery, but you can take in a lot more fascinating tweets in the thread.

Mario's video games tend to be pretty tame and straightforward, but any time he warps into another medium things get freaking wild. From R-Rated manga to adult videos to ice capades, Mario's non-gaming adventures are mostly experiences Nintendo probably wants to keep buried. But we're unearthing them, because this... is CanonBall.

Crazy Badass Storms Through Traffic Arm, Jumps Rising Drawbridge

Well, we've got a new candidate for Time's person of the year. Or at least the badassof the year. We just don't know their identity. 

In a move that can be described as "sick," "dope," and "really f*cking cool," an impatient driver in Daytona Beach, Florida, decided to take a risk and drive over a rising drawbridge instead of waiting with all the sheep who would prefer to abide by the law. The spectacle was caught on camera, and seriously looks like something out of an action movie.

While we were hoping this daredevil would come out of this scot-free, the stunt was not well-received by police, who believe they've identified our new hero. Though this may be the most talked about instance of Evel Knievel-ry, it seems like jumping over drawbridges is a "Florida Man" trait. A motorcyclist made the dramatic leap last month, and we've even seen footage of a dude running over a bridge with JUST HIS FEET. It's true that these shows of cojones are dangerous and sometimes deadly, so while we're celebrating this instance of success, we must urge you not to try this yourself. Thanks to the videos below, you can enjoy the thrill (and some entertaining reactions) from home.

FOX's Malcolm In The Middle was popular for many reasons. Frankie Muniz as the hero. Jane Kaczmarek. Bryan Cranston's biggest role leading up Breaking Bad. And of course, the comedy. On the Internet, however, it's the show's opening credits that's had people talking for over 20 years. The collage of footage (set to They Might Be Giants) includes a ski jumper who is on fire - and people have been very serious about discovering its origin. And we're happy to report that YouTuber Kid Leaves Stoops did a thorough investigation and has shared their discoveries with us in this very detailed video.

Strange Memes For Lovers Of Weird Humor

If you love surreal, nihilistic, or downright cursed memes, you're gonna love this unique gallery. While some of the experiences and themes described in the memes (such as existential crises or general dissatisfaction with life) feel universal, these ain't your mama's relatable memes. Instead, they're a bit disjointed, very colorful, and often make little to know sense. Many of them are very colorful and a joy to look at. All of this means one thing: you're in for a very un-boring scrolling session.

Anyone remember Bat Boy? According to legend, the half-bat, half-boy crawled out of the West Virginia caves sometime in the 1970s, only to be discovered and plastered on the front cover of Weekly World News in 1992. But the adventures of the tabloid legend don't stop there. He became a musical, he bit Santa Claus, and eventually he, uh, maybe mailed anthrax to Cracked.

It's said that you learn something new every day. Well, today we learned that Nicolas Cage was slated to star in a Tim Burton-helmed Superman film. The movie, titled Superman Lives sounded like the breath of fresh air that the franchise needed. But due to production company drama, the plug was ultimately pulled. These costume tests from 1997, however, give us a taste of the awesomeness that might have been.
