FAIL Blog Names United States Congress the Kings and Queens of FAIL for 2011

In the year of Weiner showing his wiener, a high-profile super committee failure, the debit ceiling crisis, an insider trading brouhaha and pizza being declared a vegetable, could there be a more colossal embarrassing moment for the United States Congress this year? According to FAIL Blog, that answer is yes with the entire U.S. Congress beating out Kim Kardashian, the Westboro Baptist Church, Rebecca Black and even Muammar Gaddafi as the Kings and Queens of Fail for 2011. Justin Bieber, crowned the Prince of FAIL in 2010, can now happily transfer his FAIL prize to the politicians in Washington D.C. Click to see the full list of 2011′s Top Failiest People, The Top 10 Moments in FAIL, and The Top 10 FAIL Videos.

We’re Uniting the FAILs at FAIL Nation!

We’re changing up a few things on the FAIL Blog sites, so here’s a handy road map for what’s happening with FAIL Nation, the FAIL Blog homepage, and beyond:

FAIL Nation, a brand new site, will now be your place for “classic” fails like sign fails, falling fails, and more. It’s geared for people who just want to see some fails, dangit, and no cat shirt promos.

Up Next in Sports and That Will Buff Out are being retired as individual sites. In the future, sports and car fails will all be on FAIL Nation.

FAIL Blog will now showcase the best and most highly-rated content from across the entire FAIL Blog family of sites.

Questions about the new format? Please let us know in the comments. Welcome to FAIL Nation, and enjoy your stay.

Tools for Developers – Now with FAIL Support

Just a friendly reminder for all of the awesome coders who hang out here, the Cheezburger Network Tools for Developers (a.k.a. the Cheezburger API) documentation has instructions on how to interface with the Cheezburger Network. You can drop captions on any picture, view and manage your collection of favorites, submit content to your cheezburger account and other cool things.

We have recently added support for FAIL Blog content. You can now get random fails as well as send your fails directly to FAIL Blog. If your fail is is epic enough, it can wind up on the front page.

There are some cool apps out there using our API, including our own I Can Has Cheezburger iPhone app,  lolcatmaker for iPhone, and an app for Boxee.  Developers are currently working on apps for Android, BlackBerry, and Palm Pre. If you’re developing an app that uses the API and would like to be featured here, please let us know.
