Yup, April Fools day today. There were a few sites out there with good stuff.

ThinkGeek, as usual, brought the funny. Every year they have a bunch of fake items for sale on their front page. One of my favorites this year, Tribbles 'n' Bits Breakfast Cereal:

ThinkGeek :: Tribbles 'n' Bits Breakfast Cereal

The archive of past April Fools products (and I assume this year's will be added) is HERE

The site Geeks.com had an ad for a new version of rockband: Rockband Marching Band. The package included things like 1 trumpet, 1 trombone, 1 tuba, etc.

A picture of the ad is under here. )

But my favorite April Fools website today was definitely http://www.ryanseacrest.com/
Yes, you read that right. The super awesome funny Joel McHale took over Ryan's site for the day. (and his Twitter too!)
Because it was the whole site I've got multiple screenshots under the cut for you.

The term "slash" for gay fan fiction is derived from some of the first ones written: Kirk/Spock.
I didn't think the people who wrote it had any factual basis for it, until now... I don't remember this scene, but it's certainly slashy!

It's from the "Shore Leave" episode.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] witling for pointing it out.

The Kevin Smith/Southwest situation.
The girl Kevin was sitting next to on his flight home got in contact with him, and talks to him on SModcast HERE. The way she was also treated by Southwest is just shameful. The Southwest employees need some serious Customer Service training.
Kevin also writes more about the experience and how it was handled HERE. Gotta love the screenshots that show how SWA went into the original "apology" and changed some of the wording, with no note or citation of the change. Real professional.
The third paragraph where they originally threw the blame on the pilot:
"Our pilots are responsible for the Safety and comfort of all Customers on the aircraft and therefore, made a judgment call that Mr. Smith needed more than one seat to complete his flight."
Was changed to:
"We are responsible for the Safety and comfort of all Customers on the aircraft and therefore, we made a judgment call that Mr. Smith needed more than one seat to complete his flight."
I assume this is because the second blog they posted admitted that the pilot wasn't responsible, which therefore made the first one a lie. And we all know that when caught in a lie the ethical thing to do is retroactively change it.

An awesome article about Roger Ebert and how he is living with his cancer, and the results of his cancer treatments HERE

Leo LaPorte on TwitTV with the folks who did the "Look at me, look at him" Old Spice commercial. CGI or not?

And last, but not least, a Tweet that amused me today from @mklopez: In Holland, physically disabled people can get money from govt to be used to pay for sex. To do: 1) Move to Holland. 2) Chop off one foot.

[livejournal.com profile] muskrat_john posted a funny tweet last week. Many people said "OMG. I would so buy that t-shirt" so he drew a picture to go with it, and now you can buy that shirt!


Head on over to Off World Designs to buy the t-shirt here, or for the ladies cut go here.

And I'm not sure how long it's good for, but right now the code "presdaysale" = 25% off!

from @waitwait (The official NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me twitter acct):
Guest this week: Judd Apatow. In honor of him, we're doing the show stoned. Or, I should say: MORE stoned. /PDS.
(The /PDS means it was Peter Sagal. A bunch of the WWDTM guys use that account)

from Leverage's @BethJRiesgraf:
Dear Stranger, Please don't perch uncomfortably close, offer me drugs, or come back to ask for directions. ever again.

from @scottmccloud:
Even his BEES are winning awards now. #ohwhoelse
This one is referencing the fact that Neil Gaiman has not only won Hugo, Nebula, Locus, Bram Stoker, World Fantasy, and Eisner Awards as well as this year's Newbery Medal, but now the honey produced from his bee hives that he keeps with @birdchick just took TWO blue ribbons at the county fair!

from writer/crazy person @warrenellis:
i have taken some pills and now my balls are glowing WHY WON'T YOU LOVE ME I MAKE MY BALLS GLOW FOR YOU
No, I don't know what it means either.

Look at this sweet, innocent, harmless little puddy tat:

Lies! He's not sweet & innocent!

He tried to MURDER me on Tuesday!!!

Tuesday morning I finished my shower and walked out of the bathroom. One step into the hallway and next thing I knew I was flat on my back. Gabriel had puked in the hallway right in front of the bathroom door! I banged my knee pretty bad, and I've been kind of achy, but I didn't hit my head or anything.

But, at least when your day starts with you flat on your ass, naked, and covered in cat puke, you know your day can only get better. :)

[livejournal.com profile] genevra had a Christmas party to go to tonight, and [livejournal.com profile] akdar is off playing with the boys in [livejournal.com profile] mhuot's basement, so I'm watching the monkeys. Both yesterday and today when they were told that I was babysitting [livejournal.com profile] technomonkey_m said, "No! She's monkey-sitting!"

I ♥ Sinfest. In this post from back in August, Moose declared that he did not support Palin. It looks like the other mooses out there read that & added their support...

John McCain has a campaign store.

You can buy fine merchandise there, such as this pen:


Yup, with a pen like that you can be secure in the knowledge that no child will be left behind...

Well, they fixed it on the site. Wonder if the actual pens were already printed, and if they were printed correctly?

I still had the page open on my computer so I did another screen shot of the original, and then opened it in Firefox and did a screen shot of the new version.

What it looked like this morning:

As we were eating dinner Friday night, I asked my cousin & his wife, "So, is Kathy just slurring more now that she's getting older, or is she half in the bag?"
My cousin: "I'd guess half in the bag. Either that or she just had a stroke because she wasn't slurring 3 hours ago."
Kind of sad, because mom really does drink too much these days, but also really damn funny.
On a less funny note, I also noticed that mom was coughing A LOT this weekend. And not just "oh, I have a cold" coughs, but the kind of coughs you only get from someone who has been smoking for over 40 years. Not that Kathy would ever admit that smoking might be the cause of the cough. Smoking isn't bad for you, just ask her. But yeah, her coughs were so much worse than they've ever been in the past. *sigh*

xkcd is a webcomic that is mainly stick figures, very minimalistic, very little color used, and way super cool awesomely wicked funny!

These are the last two cartoons posted. The first one made me laugh, and the second one made me smile even though it put that damned song BACK in my head!! (and for those of you who haven't seen the commercial/heard the Discovery Channel song, HERE IT IS)

Know Your Vines

xkcd Loves the Discovery Channel

There is also a syndicated LJ feed

Does anyone have a crowbar?

I'm off to pry the gun from his cold dead hands.

Can't help it. I laughed. :)

The movie marquee at Block E:


I went to P.S. I Love You with [livejournal.com profile] lucky13charm a couple weeks ago. It was a sappy romantic love story with lots of pretty men and Jeffrey Dean Morgan's very nice naked ass.
It looks like the Block E theater is showing Psi Love You. It's a sci-fi love story! With mind-control! And Jeffrey Dean Morgan's very nice naked ass!

I'm not sure if I should be amused or scared that so many of y'all on my flist want me to actually make the Hawt Goat-Fucking Action filter and/or be put on it...
Buncha sick puppies here, I tell ya!

And should I censor my Monkey sex icon? Is it pedophilia if the baby monkey is watching them?

Falwell is dead and hopefully he's in Heaven. Yes, I did say that. Read on and you see why.

From [livejournal.com profile] trollprincess's LJ and comments in threads:

TP: As has been said I'm sorry for his loved ones but ... yeah. You know what makes me happy? You know that smack upside the head you give your little brother when he's being a real moron? I keep picturing God walking up to Jerry Falwell in Heaven and giving him that exact same smack.
And then when he said, "Who do you think you are, woman?", She'd smack him again just for kicks.

Me: But see, your Falwell scenario could never happen because he'd have to be in Heaven and I'm pretty sure that he's hanging out somewhere a little warmer. :)

TP: You know, on one hand I really want to think that.
On the other hand I'd LOVE to see him in Heaven, walking in and seeing people of all colors and girls holding hands with other girls and boys making out and Muslims and Jews and pagans and people wearing pro-choice shirts and realizing that he's going to be spending eternity in that place with people he loathes. (Of course looking at it that way means that IS his Hell, but whatever.)

Me: Oooooh. I like that idea. He goes to Heaven, where he was convinced he was going, and he finds out that he's not nearly as important there as he thought he was. And besides dealing with all the people he loathes, having to admit that he was wrong about them would make it his hell.
hee hee
This is making me giggle now.

Heck, I thought that to get to London from Minneapolis I would need a plane ticket. I was wrong...
According to Google Maps you just Swim across the Atlantic Ocean.....3,462 mi.
LOL! The estimated time of the drive is about 30 days, 4 hours.

So NSFW! But funny as hell! Can't wait to see this movie.

Gotta love a movie trailer with that pretty RED "This preview..." screen.
