funny things found on the internets.

Enjoy an assortment of funny things found on the internets:

  • I never thought I’d say such a blasphemous thing, but this is better than Cry Face. Be sure to check out the “How To.”
  • Ha, I like this guy: “Not to be a dick or anything, Iguana, but you’re not a fucking dinosaur. I know you roam around showing off your scaly skin, beady little eyes, and your nose holes. And yes, I’ve seen your tongue. But let me ask you a few questions. Can I ride you? Do you have answering machine messages from Steven Spielberg? WERE YOU ON MY SHOES WHEN I WAS EIGHT???”
  • I’m embarrassed by how many people sent me a link to this. I’m also embarrassed that my boss told me today that if she ever needed to coax me out of a burning building (long story), she’d just get a breakfast sandwich and say “Maaaaallory…look what I haaave…” 

Bet your Friday night wasn’t as fun as mine!!!

youtube clip of today: wtf blanket.

If you hate the Snuggie commercials on teevee as much as I do, you will find this to be humorous.  Honestly, I think they make people look like Jedi knights.  Which, to some, might be cool.  McStarWars, yours is in the mail.

And just for funsies, here is the actual Snuggie commercial. VOM.

a lifetime movie waiting to happen.

Here is your crazy story for today! (From the AP)

HEBRON, Ind. —  Police say a northern Indiana woman who wasn’t invited to her sister’s wedding reception showed up anyway and attacked the bride, pulling out clumps of her hair.

Twenty-three-year-old Annmarie Bricker of Valparaiso faces a misdemeanor battery charge for last Friday’s attack outside a Porter County home.

The Porter County Sheriff’s Department says a friend was hosting a reception for Nicholas Landry and Lori Kappes — Bricker’s sister — when Bricker attacked Kappes on the front porch.

Police say that after the attack, Kappes had smeared makeup and clumps of hair missing from her head but sought no medical treatment.

Bricker told police she arrived at the home to confront her sister and parents and “just wanted to talk” about family problems. She says she never touched her sister.

She “just wanted to talk”? HA!  Liar, liar, pants on fire!

I sense a Lifetime movie script in the works.  Toss in a stripper, a pregnancy, and we’ve got ourselves a nice little Sunday afternoon.  Maybe Kate Hudson is available?

the shoe heard round the world.

Remember that Iraqi reporter who threw his fancy footwear at the (former!) leader of the free world’s head?  Ahh yes, Muntazer al-Zaidi!  That silly prankster!

Now, as you could have gathered from my liberal bleeding heart wimpy sappy Obama obsessed blog,  I wasn’t W’s biggest fan.  But, to quote Austin Powers (and I will NEVER EVER quote it again, by the way.  I promise.), “Who throws a shoe? Honestly?!”

To commemorate the Muntazernator’s horrible aim (or W.’s cat-like reflexes, which no doubt are a result of his frequent cat naps), the Iraqis in Sadaam Hussein’s hometown, Tikrit, have unveiled a six-foot statue of a shoe.  Cool?

Now that is CLASSY.  One and a half tons of pure class with a tree sticking out of it.  Just in case you are dumb like me and can’t read Arabic, the inscription says “Muntazer: fasting until the sword breaks its fast with blood; silent until our mouths speak the truth.”

Ah, now that is poetry.

Muntazer, by the way, is in jail.  He is facing charges of assaulting a visiting head of state.

And please note about the title of this post, I KNOW that you can’t hear a shoe around the world.  I’m only making a nerdy historical reference to “the shot heard round the world”.  It’s a line from a poem written by Emerson about the start of the Revolutionary War.  WOOO LIBERAL ARTS!

constantly changing from calm to ill.

I randomly bought the City and Colour song “Sleeping Sickness” on iTunes because when all of my college friends and I slept for days on end in the weeks after we graduated, we called it the sleeping sickness. Which is to say, we were all probably mildly depressed because life REALLY sucks for a while right after you graduate from college. 

So I bought this song and kind of forgot about it, but it came on my shuffle the other day and I was all, “Hey! I like this! Where did this come from?!” Now I’ve been listening to it on repeat, as I’m apt to do. I really like the second verse, when the other singer (Gord Downie, thankyouverymuch YouTube) comes in. It’s a nice surprise, and there’s something very raw and appealing about his voice:

I debated for a while about whether to post the official music video or a live video, and for purposes of quality, the official video won. I rarely like a music video better than an actual live performance, and frankly who really watches music videos anymore? I’m starting to think they’re a lost art. But hey, as long as someone keeps putting that stuff on YouTube, I’ll keep posting it here.

i voted for a republican today.

Having been accused of only seeing things as a Democrat, I’d just like to announce that I transcended party lines today (take THAT, Mike.) and voted for a Republican.  This was a very serious and thoughtful vote that I took, and I stand by my decision.  I voted for Republican Congressman Aaron Schock as the hottest Congressional Freshman.

The choices?

Glenn Nye of Virginia, Aaron Schock of Illinois, Jim Himes of Connecticut, Tom Perriello of Virginia, and Jared Polis of Colorado.  Nye has solid good looks, and Himes is pretty foxy.  But Aaron Schock? RAWR.  Very, very…pretty.

See?

And he’s only 27.  True story, he’s the first member of Congress to be born in the 80s.  Thanks, Huffpo, for the factoid.

Vote for yourselves!

youtube clip of today: cadbury eyebrows.

This video is taking over the world wide webs!  No but seriously, people are loving this.  It is slightly hilaaaaaaarious.  When the girl whips out the balloon?  HA!  But it’s weird too.  Perfect for SWTCTW, no?  Now all I can think about is Cadbury chocolate.  YUM.
