Wednesday links [Oct. 6th, 2010|04:04 pm]

This is awesome. You parents may know all about these already. But I’m thinking, really, why stop at children. I think Fetch and I may need these for when we go out drinking. The Halloween Pirate may be a seasonal item for them, but I think year-round for me.


You know that pretty girl in high school or maybe now in your office, she looked fabulous with no make-up, she could eat a snickers bar every afternoon as a snack and never gain an ounce, and she could totally mess up a project, and just laugh and all of the guys would instantly forgive her? And how much you wanted to push her down a flight of stairs and gloat over her maimed and broken corpse?

When it comes to funny, I feel this way about this guy. It’s NOT FAIR. But, admittedly, at least it gives me joy to watch him, even if I’m writhing in jealous agony. Or agonistic jealousy. Something like that.

Which was brilliant comedy. And these notes are not far behind:
