2/19/2013

2/18/2013

Rules for the New Monopoly Cat Token: new tokens strikes me as heresy, but luckily I still have my old set in good condition.

2/11/2013

12/10/2012

@AvoidComments: this is good advice.

4/26/2012

1995 Pontiac Grand Am GT: it’s getting noticed but I doubt the people most impressed by this are in the market for a $700 busted Pontiac.

9/25/2011

9/21/2011

Wolf Urine Lure: read the one entitled “One for the cellar.” Also, enjoy the reviews for fresh whole rabbit and the Luke Skywalker Ceremonial Jacket.

8/25/2011

New Apple CEO Tim Cook: I’m Thinking Printers: too soon.

8/24/2011

Urban Dictionary – get an inbox: very useful term.

8/23/2011

Hangman’s Rope: read the reviews. Also, if you search for “noose” on Amazon, you get another way to kill yourself.

8/14/2011

Fuck You Yelper: amen!

6/24/2011

8 Facts You Didnt Know About The Ice Cream Man: I did not know that.

Missing Missy: something about this brings me to tears laughing.

7/2/2010

Brett Erlich on Twilight: also, they call it the wrong thing. Twilight bills itself as a vampire movie but they aren’t vampires, aside from the drinking blood and immortality aspects. Similarly, soccer is called football despite its ball being the wrong shape, its goal is on the ground rather than in the air, and its discouragement of tackling.

6/28/2010

3/15/2010

That’s What Bea Said: I love this take on the meme!

1/8/2010

7/15/2009

E-Mails from an Asshole: is this Pranking 2.0? Guy replies to Craigslist ads with absurd earnestness. Luckily, they’re so over-the-top that I don’t see much harm in it.

7/14/2009

Helen Keller Simulator: you need to make it full screen for best results. There’s also a copycat out there.

2/24/2009

3M Performance Plus 8979N Nuclear Grade 48-Millimeter-by-54.8-Meter Duct Tape, Slate Blue: more great Amazon reviews.

2/17/2009

2/3/2009

Cornify: make any site suitable for little girls to visit.

1/27/2009

How Many 90 Year Olds Could You Take in a Fight?: I can only take 12 so I’d better stay away from the bigger retirement homes.

1/21/2009

Whiner Jerkins All Hands 10/13/08: funny VC Powerpoint parody.

10/10/2008

6 Baffling Mistakes Every Movie Criminal Makes: Cracked has some really good list entries. Favorite quote: “Cool criminal genius Hans Gruber wants to commit a robbery.
