This is it. It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for. For the past week you’ve done nothing but work, typing away in your cubicle, secluded from the world while the rest of us had an amazing time laughing at hilarious videos and enjoying everything else the internet has to offer. Well, now it’s your time. These are 25 of the week’s best links, articles, images, and videos from all over the web just giving you a glimpse of everything you’ve missed out on.

But enough with this petty banter. This is Link25 (304) – The Last Blockbuster Standing Edition.
