I’m sure this is old and has been sent round before, but, its still good for a chuckle. Would be better if it was Peter Costello wearing that t-shirt. That’d be a pretty good photoshop challenge I reckon.
Looks like America’s Finest News Sources, The Onion has put their entire archive online for free (this was previously a paid premium service). Awesome!
Everyone knows someone like this. They refer to themselves as “otaku” and they embrace everything Japanese, not necessarily because it’s something unique or interesting, but because it’s Japanese. They wear clothing with Japanese or Chinese characters on it that translate to English phrases like “good will” or “long life.” They wouldn’t be able to get away with wearing a shirt that said “long life” in English because it would just look stupid, but as soon as it’s translated into kanji it suddenly becomes cool and mysterious? Please.
I have great memories of cicadas from when I was a kid. Green grocers, brown bakers, black tigers. Some were more difficult to find than others. Today I was looking at the Cicadaville site, and it had some facts I didn’t know.
FACT: Cicadas are vicious killers.
FACT: Cicadas prey on innocent children and pets.
FACT: Cicadas are seething with deadly venom and flesh-eating bacteria.
FACT: This year Cicadas will kill more people than snakes, spiders, scorpions, and sharks combined!
Thanks to Tony for sending that on. Not sure of the original source.
More proof that it isn’t just the west and inner west who are doing it rough nowadays…
A group of pilled up youths attacked police in Killara today after a day of designer drugs and Stoli vodka.
The gang of 20-something rich kids hurled BMWs, bags of coke, Rolex watches, Arts degrees, Technics turntables, Tsubi jeans, duck-feathered pillows, leather couches, laptops, ITM slipmats, textbooks, dictionaries, non-stick woks, paintings, fingerlickin records, golf balls, hockey sticks, condoms and vitamin tablets at hapless police.
Police responded with water hoses and tear gas, injuring two boys. Both boys fathers rung Bob Carr immediately threatening legal action.
One policeman was knocked unconscious by an Honours degree from Sydney Uni hurled by a young 25 year old graduate working at his dad mate’s consultancy firm.
Police said, “these boys should know better then to throw their possessions at us. They are educated, have every chance in life and we’ve never done anything to hurt them.”
The riot was sparked when neighbours complained of loud sexy house music pounding from the backyard of the party host. Police attended the scene and things got worse from there.
Police were considering making arrests but were instructed to drop the case after one of the boy’s fathers offered to donate money to build a new gym at police HQ.
Thanks to Jaime for that π
An email I received from a friend that was too hot too pass up…
I know the counsellor said we shouldn’t contact each other during our “cooling off” period, but I couldn’t wait any more. The day you left, I swore I’d never talk to you again. But that was just the wounded little boy in me talking. Still, I never wanted to be the first one to make contact. In my fantasies, it was always you who would come crawling back to me. I guess my pride needed that. But now I see that my pride’s cost me a lot of things. I’m tired of pretending I don’t miss you. I don’t care about looking bad any more. I don’t care who makes the first move as long as one of us does. Continue reading “Relationship stuff”
