#BroThatsNotOK – UN Women Unite to End Violence Against Women

   Category: Maintenance |

Remember our #brothatsnotok posts? #BroThatsNotOK

At ChurpChurp, most of our staff are women and it is unthinkable that in this day and age women are still being oppressed in so many ways.

United Nation Women urges everyone to learn how to identify what and how violence against women is and how to seek help for those who do not have the strength to do so.

Men and women alike should UNiTE to End Violence Against Women. You can share your thoughts on their official Facebook page or leave a comment.

You can also join the cause via www.BroThatsNotOK.unwomen.org and most importantly, SHARE THIS with all your friends. Let’s make the world a better place for everyone – men and women.



Guys VS. Girls – Who Did It Worse?

   Category: Maintenance |

Memes are all the rage these days! And in the matter of guys vs. girls, we’ve scoured and compiled a list of the 5 most socially awkward fails from #brothatsnotok.

Here are the categories that we came up with:

1. HAIR DOs

 

The Heli-Do VS. The Double Mustache

Bad hair day? Experience the mushroom hairdo your mom ordered when you were ten or the 90’s boy band signature center parting or “kachupoy” look. We can name a few bad hair trends but these solo gems hit the ball out of the park. *ohgodwhy.jpg*

VERDICT: Guys win this round! Dude, you know your mustache is in the wrong place, right?

 

2. PHOTOSHOP SKILLS

   

That Figure VS. Those Biceps

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

This, unfortunately, does not apply to photoshopping skills. Knowing how to do it does not mean you can do it well! We all want to look our best, but we call this an abuse of the liquefy tool!

VERDICT: A TIE! We quote Bruno Mars and insist that “You are beautiful, just the way you are!”

 

3. PARENTING

 

The Stage Mom VS. The Scooter-Pram

We’ve seen what parents have been doing with their kids (frankly, there are a lot of mischievous parents). To all stage moms, we see this leading to a one way street named DAMAGED CHILDHOOD! Lol.

VERDICT: Stage Moms, because no 5 year old should look like they are 40.

 

4. FOOTWEAR FASHION

 

The Sandal-Boot VS. The Sandals-Socks Combo

Footwear has evolved from necessity to Lobster shoes (don’t forget to mention Lady Gaga), sky high platforms (RIP Spice Girls days) and uhm, the Sandal Boot?

VERDICT: Joan Rivers would now quip in with a snarky, potentially vulgar comment but we would just like to say “JUST DON’T DO IT, BOYS”.

 

5. SELFIES

 

My BF Caught Me Sleeping VS. My GF Took A Cute Photo of Me

Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who’s the most loved of all? We feel a bit sorry because the lonely hearts club just absorbed two more members. Isn’t this photo too hilarious?

We can see your reflection of fail in the mirror, you know that right? Our resident Nuffnang selfie guru advises all to vet your photos BEFORE posting them!

VERDICT: Selfie fails do not discriminate by gender. We call this one a tie!

 

We must admit we retrieved all these uncool posts about guys via http://brothatsnotok.com. If you enjoyed all the crazy stuff you’ve seen so far, hop over to the new meme site for more laughs (and cringes)! #morethanmeetstheeye

Seen any instances of fail that has reached epic proportions? Hit us up in the comments below, we’d love a good laugh in the office!

Cheers,

Nuffie Monika and Nuffie Clei

Churp Churp Community Announcement

   Category: Maintenance |

Dear Churpers,

As many of you might have noticed, the Churp Churp website was inaccessible for most of today (27 September), and it was brought to our attention that this was due to an intrusion into the networks of our web hosting service Exabytes, where 50 servers, including ours, were deleted. As a result, there was an interruption of services on our part.

Despite the deletion of the servers, our Tech team has since restored our site from a remote backup, and Churp Churp is running as usual again. However, there are some data that might still be missing, and we need help from all of you to ensure that any hiccups are ironed out soon.

There are a few ways you can contact us if you are facing any issues with your Churp Churp account, which are as below:

Churp Churp helpdesk
Dedicated feedback form

If you are encountering any errors with your account settings, user details, earnings, missing accounts and etc., please do get in touch with us via any of the ways listed above before 27 October 2012. Do provide us with as much information as possible, and do allow us until 30 November to resolve all issues. Jaedee

While we are working hard to fix errors occurring at the moment, we also regret that we will temporarily be suspending cashout requests from all accounts until all matters have been resolved.

Thank you, Churpers, for all your patience and support through this time, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Sincerely,
The Churp Churp Team
