Odds and Ends for 1-22-2006

A plethora of insane tidbits that barged into our psyches and started demanding hot tea and crumpets…

Foosball for people with too much money. I mean, who fantasizes about playing fooseball for real so much that they would want their faces on the playing field? I’m seriously asking here. Found via Wired.

Pikachu on a cracker? Is it brilliant? Is it sick and depraved? No, it’s all three! Whoopeeeee! Found via MetaFilter.

An advert that features a bunch of celebs divulging their favorite bits of profanity. We don’t know why we like this, but we do. Found via MetaFilter.

Guinness ice cream? Hell yes. The liquor industry misses my business so they’re trying to do an end-run via sundries to win my ass back. Get thee behind me, you bastards!

Can we hope someday that the villain in a Bond movie will carry a cane as cool as this one? We can hope, yes–but it would be foolish to do so.

Broadcast flag shenanigans are back in Congress. Of course. Boing Boing has all the info.

Reason reports that Kellogg’s and Nickelodeon are responsible for your fat children. Yeah, makes no sense to us either.

I can’t afford a pinball machine…but I could at least have a coffee table. Found via Boing Boing.

Poe’s dead and the gawkers won’t leave well enough alone, apparently. Bastards. Found via Boing Boing.


  • I think next year the pro-Poe forces should show up as reinforcements, every one of us dressed as the mysterious stranger and holding roses and cognac.

    Who’s with me?
