theCHIVE has teamed up with Adam Sandler’s new comedy, That’s My Boy, to create a new brand of Father’s Day cards, If Father’s Day Cards Were Honest.

Let’s face it, when we send our dads a Father’s Day card, we rush to the local drug store, pick out the corniest card, write the first nice thing we can think of, and stick the card in the mail.

This year, we want the Chivers to create the most honest and funny card they could ever possibly send to their fathers. You can use an actual card and simply snap a photo of it, or even create a card online if you like. As long as it’s honest, it’s fair game.

Send your submissions to fathersdaychive@gmail.com. One week from today we’ll post the top 20 submissions on Monday and let you vote on the funniest Father’s Day card. Get creative and be honest!

 The Military KCCOs have returned!

After being Sold Out for nearly 3 months, the Military KCCO’s are back for the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. There are limited supplies on theCHIVERY so you gotta’ be quick.

You don’t need to be a memeber of our Armed Forces to purchase a shirt this time around but please don’t buy them just to put the fuckers on Ebay, our service men and women don’t deserve that.

Limit 5 per order.

Military KCCO’s available RIGHT HERE.

Good luck, Godspeed.

UPDATE: All sizes SOLD OUT

return of the military kcco A few notes on tomorrows Military KCCO launch...

I’ve received a few questions regarding tomorrow’s Noon PST launch of the Military KCCO’s on theCHIVERY that I’m happy to answer.

First, this is not a pre-sale. Stocks are limited and it’s game on.

I’ve also heard your requests to raise the purchase limit from 5 to 10 shirts. I understand many of you are charged with the task of buying for your entire squad but, to be fair to everybody (and to curb the Ebay cherry picking), we must keep the limit to 5 shirts/order.

Per your suggestions, we’ve raised the logo 2 inches on the shirt. Even after the adjustment the logo will not be visible under your uniform, it will just be more centered on the shirt, which makes you look more handsome.

As always, good luck!

honor wall Operation Honor Wall: Honor a Hero

One of our Chivers, Chrisopher, has created a virtual Honor Wall for the troops. The idea is simple: Head over to Operationhonorwall and click ‘Honor a Hero Here’. You’ll be given an easy pop-up screen to craft a message for the soldiers. Your message of support will appear on the Honor Wall for everybody to see. It’s a great idea to show your support for our service men and women this Memorial Day. Click here to honor a hero.

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend, Chivers, and stay tuned for the Friday DAR1

 Join theCHIVE this Saturday in Santa Monica for happy hour!

theCHIVE is throwing an intimate gathering of like-minded idiots this Cat Saturday near our offices and you’re invited. We’ll be at Renee’s on Wilshire in Santa Monica from 7-10 and we want to meet our LA Chivers. Here’s the deal, I’m going to throw my credit card down and pay for everybody’s beers. When that fucker hits its limit, you pay for beers. Simple.

Because Renee’s is a smaller venue we do ask that you RSVP to the event. The first 80 people to contact us at chivesantamonica [at] gmail [dot] com will gain admittance. You must receive an email back from us confirming your request. Please keep it to yourself +2 to give everybody a fair chance.

We’re looking forward to raising a glass with our Chivers this Saturday and then taking the hangover shitshow on the road to San Diego on Sunday. This should be a good time. RSVP right now!

KCCO,

John

 Chivettes, we need your smiles for the troops!

Memorial Day weekend is upon us and we want to do something special for the troops. On top of our military meetup in San Diego, we wanted to do something more to show our appreciation. What better way than a beautiful smile?

Obviously Chivettes, if you have any military gear laying around, props are welcome. But if you don’t, just flash us your best smile to show your love. Send the smiles to thechivesubmit [at] gmail [dot] com or use our handy-dandy submit page.

Be as creative as you can, the SC goes live this Friday!

 theCHIVE San Diego meetup is a GO!

The date and location is finally set for our Memorial Day Weekend San Diego meetup! This Sunday, May 27th from 8-11pm, theCHIVERS are making a road trip down to Basic Bar in the Gaslamp Quarter to wreck shop with our service men and women.

We’ll be handing out Military KCCO’s to the first 100 sailors and troops through the door with Military ID. Also, all military personnel will be given a wristband for yourself and a +1 to drink your faces off, for free, on us. No corporate sponsors, we stick to the code.

You DO NOT have to be in the military to attend but this event is to honor our troops so they will be given priority and we invite all civilians to buy our sailors and soldiers a drink. This is their weekend.

For all the info, check out our San Diego Meetup Facebook page. We’re not selling tickets so RSVP’ing won’t guarantee admittance. We know this is going to be pretty crazy but isn’t that the point?

We’re looking to raising a glass with all our fellow Chivers and Chivettes. We’ll see you on Sunday!

chive sd theCHIVE wants to spend Memorial Day with our sailors, we need your input!

Here at theCHIVE, we always support our troops at home and abroad, and it’s about damn time we raise a glass with our Navy/Marine/Air Force/Coast Guard/Army Chivers.

theCHIVERS/theBRIGADERS want to take a road trip down to the San Diego area and party ’till the rotors fall off for Memorial Day but there’s one problem – we have absolutely no idea what we’re doing. We don’t even have a location or a date for this shitshow but not to worry, we specialize in controlled chaos.

Here’s what we need from our Naval Base/Miramar/Camp Pendleton/Fort Irwin Chivers:

We don’t know if any of y’all will be in town for Memorial Day. Does that Monday, May 28th work?
If not, would a weekday meetup be better? What day?
We’re available to travel starting Wednesday 23rd – Memorial Day except for Sat. the 26th.
Does next week even work at all?

Next, do y’all have a favorite watering hole?

This event will not be limited to the troops but it is for the troops. We will be handing out free Military KCCO’s to the first 130 troops through the door with military ID’s.

We want to hear from as many of you as possible to gauge what day and location you prefer. Majority rules.

Email your suggestions to wherethehellshouldwego [at] gmail [dot] com

Get moving, we want to announce the location this Friday!

KCCO,

John

chive lead An article on theCHIVE community yall might enjoy ...

We recently gave an interview to Washington Times columnist Jeff Barrett. I’m not posting this on theCHIVE in a sort of hey-look-what-cool-shit-people-are-saying-about-us! way; as many of you know, I’ve denied interviews to larger publications as I have no interest in using mainstream media to spread theCHIVE word.

However, this interview is largely about the Chivers and the kindness of theCHIVE community. Plus I figured since I’m constantly asked these very same questions I could kill, like, 2 million birds with one stone here. At the very least these are my honest thoughts on the Chive and provide some insight to its humble beginnings. Also, it’s Leo’s birthday today and I thought this would be fun for him to wake up to.

Entire article right here.

Deep cleavage gallery to follow in about a half hour.


We here at theCHIVE are firm believers in helping those around you, and sometimes the smallest things can make the biggest difference. So for the next week, we encourage you to go out and perform a random act of kindness for someone. However big or small, get creative and make somebody’s day a little brighter.

Snap a quick photo of your random act of kindness and submit it to our handy dandy submit page here or thechivesubmit [at] gmail [dot] com, and show the world how awesome Chivers and Chivettes are!

For a little inspiration.

chive ny meetup theCHIVE is coming to NYC and were lookin for a host!

It’s official, Thursday June 28th theCHIVE is coming to the Big Apple for our biggest meetup ever and we need your help. Rather than hawking down potential venues for the meetup and explaining what theCHIVE is and how bonkers this is going to be, we’d prefer to hold the event at a Chive-friendly venue with a New Yorker familiar with the insanity that’s about to take place.

So if you’re a Chiver and you own or manage a bar/club in Manhattan, contact us at thechiverules [at] gmail [dot] com. We’ll fill you in on our needs for the meetup (so far we’ve got booze, tunes, unicorn ice sculpture, and the Mona Lisa). Needless to say, we will promote and highlight your venue for millions of Chivers out there so the sooner you get ahold of us the better.

Chivers, mark your calendars. We’ll be providing you with more information on the meetup time and location as we get it. An East Coast meetup has been long overdue and we plan on making it one for the books. We can’t wait to raise a glass with our NYC Chivers!

KCCO,

John n’ Leo

work_chive

With the mind-blowing underground growth theCHIVE has experienced over the past year, we need to man-up and continue providing our users with the awesomeness they come to expect. The user submits are now in the thousands per day and we do a pretty damn good job staying on top of them, but Mac and Doug need a social life (even though they have zero game) and need help. On top of it, they have both been promoted and we need a new intern.

But we’re not hiring an intern, we’re hiring a Prospect. What’s the difference? Interns come and go, Prospects, if they can handle the mental/physical abuse and half-nekkid girls walking around on occasion, are here to stay. And that’s what we need, an eager Chiver who will bust their ass, prove their worth and grow with us. The Prospect period will not last more than 6 months before either being fired or promoted to Apprentice. Once on the apprenticeship path, you will one day be posting your own galleries on theCHIVE as an Author. But you must prove yourself. And that means we need to see INITIATIVE, sitting on your ass all day won’t go unnoticed; you must take the time to learn what we do, ask questions, and get to know the Chivers. We can’t tell you to stay late and work all night, but if I were you, I’d do it anyway.

As with any job call-out, we get submissions from all over the world and it’s a bitch to sift through. That said, we are going to vet the prospects by asking anyone interested in the job to send in a one-minute video explaining why they are the man or woman for the job. You can email us a raw video file or post it on youtube, vimeo, youporn -wherever, as long as we can view the video.

You have till Wednesday, April 4th to email us your video. We will be interviewing the following week, so you’ll need to be available if you make the cut. The position will start Tuesday, April 17th. You must live in LA or relocate near Venice Beach by April 17th (if hired). Send your videos to workatthechive[at]gmail[dot]com. Please include your name and location within the video.
