Daily Afternoon Randomness in HQ (46 Photos)

It's been an amazing year for all of us here at theCHIVE. For a couple of brothers who just wanted to quit their day jobs, words can't express the gratitude I feel when I think about what this community has become.

The very first day theCHIVE started, my brother Leo and I thought we should close each day with a post that represented the best of the web - the funniest, sexiest, and most endearing photos on the internets that day. We called it the Daily Afternoon Randomness.

After a month, the DAR was getting hundreds of views a day. Leo and I thought that was so cool. Maybe someday it would reach a thousand hits!

Four years later, the DAR is visited by millions and the reason for its success has little to do with me. I'd like to thank all the Chivers and Chivettes who send in their original photos to make the DAR the great escape it is.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all of this. That was very nice of you.

We're going to post through the weekend but we're taking the next week off to spend time with our friends and family for Christmas. I'm sure we'll post sporadically throughout the week when we're bored but don't hold us to it. Patty and I will be in Key West around New Year's and our Chivers there know where to find us.

theCHIVE will return full-strength on January 2nd.

Have a Merry Christmas, Chivers. Enjoy your friends, family, and a good pint. We'll see you in 2013.

KCCO,

John

    • Jeebs

      Hey chive, please do me a favor and make it easier for me to X out of these stupid fucking advertisements at the bottom of every fucking page I look at. I don't even know what a zoosk is. And I understand you guys are here for profit but for fucks sake, how bout a little common courtesy.

      • Jack Wagon

        My favorite advertisements are the ones that take up the ENTIRE FUCKING SCREEN on my DROID4. Yup, my favorite! Merry Christmas to the entire planet!

        • placenta_smoothie

          get a computer

        • rtwfdsa

          If you have a computer go google ad block. It'll get rid of any pop-ups/advertisements on any site.

          • Andre

            He clearly said on his dumb ass PHONE!!! Some of us are on the move on the chive not just some neckbearded fucks! Get rid of annoying fucking adds please!!!!

    • bdg

        is that Carlos Mencia?

    • Shane

      Asshole

    • Shitty

      I never understood why big girls wear that shit….

      • Deep Dish

        Don't understand why this is getting voted down. It's a legit question. Bikinis are for girls who are at least relatively fit.

        • Lexie

          No I agree. I have a little stomach chub and I don't do bathing suits at all.

          • Kristen

            It's funny because you're a fat whore.

            • AlwaysAlone

              Kristen, I'd still do you even though you are fat.

        • bdg

          Beautiful REAL women!!!!!

    • Logic

      Reminds me of the AT&T bars in a way…

      • Berty

        Yea, me too , just with a lot more fat on them.

        • http://twitter.com/KenKCCO @KenKCCO

          Fuck all of you troll assholes. You do t k ow shit about shit in what it means to be a chiver.

          • ...

            Must not troll spelling….also since when is being a chiver about liking chubby chicks. I guarantee I do more to make the world a better place than you, and I've probably been on this site way longer than you. I was just poking a little fun you know like how they poke the pilsbury dough boy …

            • Berty

              Damn right bro, keep poking

            • http://www.superseedband.com AndySaximus

              he-heeeee

              • http://www.superseedband.com AndySaximus

                hmm-hmmmmm

            • AlwaysAlone

              (Making fun of fat chicks) + (making fun of pedophilia) = theChive.

              Don't like it? Leave.

          • McBeastie666

            Not sure what comments sections you've been looking at for the past couple years, but this doesn't seem out of the ordinary behavior for a chiver to me.

            • ...

              Thank you it's all these new kids that don't get what a joke is especially a clever comment. They just basically attempt to get up voted I try to bring a little flavour to the party!

    • geo

      I would bone them all if it was a package deal.

      • Capt Jean Luc Picard

        I would do any of them regardless, they are all lovely ladies!

        • ...

          Except for the fat whore.

          • Max

            How do we know she's a whore?

          • aidy

            Fuck you dick head

    • Smitty

      I heart these ladies because: squishy.

      • Puke

        Squishy stomachs, not quite the same.

        • placenta_smoothie

          as earlobes! mmmm

    • SweetGinger

      You probably have about a snowballs chance in Hell with any of those ladies…I guess, unless they like overweight, balding, mid-forty men, who live in their mother's basement…..troll.

    • rihughes

      I thought it was the tide pulling on their bellies. See the closer to the shore the more they are affected.

      • http://www.facebook.com/cassandra.boulanger Cassandra Boulanger

        Wtf chive?

        • Kristen

          Shut your whore mouth.

        • AlwaysAlone

          * Shut your whore mouth and go make me a sandwich.

    • some guy

      quick! stop standing there raking…push them back in the water, they're trying to beach themselves.

      • duckfart4U

        Miguel will never get them back in the water with that rake – especially the one on the far left- he's gonna need something much more sturdy. I think he just brought the rake out to keep the seagulls away while his helper fetches something better…..

    • Pete

      D*ckless twerp… these are nice looking women.

  • Just sayin'

    #32 You're beautiful!!!!!

    • LoyalLAChiver

      Note to self: Drop everything and move to Switzerl

    • Viking Skill

      **Swiss Chivette. Just like I'm not a Norway douche, but a Norwegian douche. Ya dig?

      • m.c.

        Unless she is an ex-pat who lives in Swtitzerland. Making her not Swiss… Now excuse me while I return to my fapping….

    • aosidns

      dat…everthing

      I apologize. A person this beautiful deserves more class than my knee-jerk-jaw-on-the-floor reaction

    • Ravel

      There are Chivettes in Switzerland? The frakk…there is hope for me after all.

      • screamqueenjo

        There are! And this one got a KCCO shirt from her best friend (best christmas gift EVER!)! Pics might follow 😉

    • http://twitter.com/Paredster @Paredster

      Check out the hespottedme.com site on fb and you can see she was at an Octoberfest party….in the US, everyother girl working was wearing the same style costume. But lies don't matter when you're that gorgeous. hahaha

        Based on these comments, I think you have receivd offers to be 100% full of any nationality that you want.

      • http://www.superseedband.com AndySaximus

        You want everyone to friend you? lol You should make where you're from public….

        • http://www.superseedband.com AndySaximus

          Honestly not sure why I even said that. Moar please ^_^

    • ZeGörman

      notes on how to tie the ribbon on that kind of dress, it's called a "Dirndl":
      lefty losey, righty tighty is what has to be remembered (from her pov)….ribbon left =single, ribbon right=taken.
      ribbon in the middle…well…haven't had sexy time yet^^
      and finally, ribbon in the back = widow

    • Notknowing

    • tdog

    • tv_paul

      Snow globes of this nature make excellent christmas presents.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Tomsfoolery TommyD

        I'd shake those.

    • herp de derp

      i think i already know what it is…

      • Kristen

        Well that's just fucking amazing. A chiver that's actually seen female nipples.

        • ...

          what a silly comment Chivers obviously see nipples we check TheChive then check porn then check TheChive again

  • Thin

    Best for last

  • nojoke420

    #38 I'm a motorboatin' son of a bitch

    • SayIWont

      why dont you try gettin jacked-off under the table in front of the whole damn family and have some real problems

      • GatOner

        Everyone wants to be part of a miracle John!

    • luckedout26

      yeah, that was awkward for both me and my computer screen…

    • Mark

      This is my photo and trust me there will be more to come of #38

    • r00s7a

      you old sailor, you!

  • Carl

    #42 Do you see what I seeeeeee?

    • Ryan

      I like how it appears as though the snowmen are each grabbing a little handful…

    • Dickleg

      Good call! Did not see that the first go-round.

  • Whoopi_G

    #38 Just what I wanted Santa! Thanks!

    • Tyler Rauch

      put those in my stocking, but idk if they will fit

  • Luvdembums

    That's one gripe against chive. Not enough curvy girls

    • China Man

      Here is another gripe. There are at least 10 "subtle hints" in the post promoting Chive merchandise. Not to mention the banners for the Chivery selling Christmas ornaments. Seriously, a Chive Christmas ornament?

      #13
      #18
      #25
      #29
      #36

      • Josh

        Let them make their money, you don't have to visit the site…

      • Alberta

        Its not chive secretly promoting their product. Those people submitted pics with their chive merchandise… Chive did not do that…

        • Get Real

          LOL – if you think the Chive does not do photo shoots and posts them on here as randomly submitted pics then you are on crack. Not to mention John always has to post his own picture wearing Chive merchandise a la #14

          • gsuchive

            If you're livelihood was partially dependent on merchandise from your website selling, I think you'd be doing a little self promoting too, let them do their thing

            • http://www.superseedband.com AndySaximus

              It's just as likely they're hangin out with chivers who take their pictures and then submit them. At least we know they actually like what they're trying to sell us. But who cares either way? More power to em. There's no membership, no crazy pop-up ads, or spam, and they do a good job. It is quality free entertainment with some great causes. I buy want to buy merch, not because it's shown on the pictures, but because I want to say thank you and get a cool shirt.

  • chivettediane

    Enjoy your vacation boys, you earned it 🙂

    • Chiver

      No sniveling!

  • chiver

    Merry Christmas Chive!

  • Whoopi_G

    #22 I could really use you a tutor right now, would you help me out?

    • Tyler Rauch

      Ques what kind of math is that? Econ? business calc?

    • The Joe

      I'm gonna ask some questions, and if you know the answer, raise your hand…

    • MMMF

      not a good tutor………the best you could get from her help would be 2 D's

    • Wisti

      her classes are a joke, but hey the boobs are very serious

  • Sanchez

    #45 The best gifts at the tree are always unwrapped

    • Sanchez

      and by that I mean I never use a condom, high five!

  • SkyVader

    #42 – Yes, oh do I? Yeah, it is a bit nipply out. I mean nippy. What am I saying, nipple?

    • JoeyW311

      Can't see the line, can ya Russ?…

      • Dickleg

        Hahaha! Classic…

    • NeedleFapper
