Peek-achu?

October 30, 2007

I’ve seen some disturbing anime stuff in my time but this … this is really freaky:

Who knew Pikachu was female?

Devil May Care

October 29, 2007

It’s that time of year again … the time for macabre madness and hellish hilarity that only the web can offer.  So, for gruesome fun, check out CAP’N WACKY’S BOATLOAD OF EVIL! (I recommend the “Unfortunate Halloween Cards” section.)

Come sail aboard CAP’N WACKY’S BOATLOAD OF EVIL. You may just laugh yourself … to death! Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha! [Note to self: maniacal laughter does not convey the appropriate menace when typed.]

My Bad

October 28, 2007

What a rotten day!  Seriously bad.  Just got back from the emergency room after reading the following headline: Boiled nuts help protect against illness.

Next time you can be damn sure I’m reading the whole bloody article before attempting what I believe to be a homeopathic treatment. 

On the up side, I’ll never have to worry about paternity testing.

Dogs In Togs

October 27, 2007

I’ve seen a lot of people dressing their dogs up in costumes lately.  A Halloween thing, don’tcha know.  Usually these nunderchucks wait until Christmas to adorn their cards with snaps of Fido wearing antlers and Ruff in a Santa suit.  But now it seems hip to stress out puppy with a pumpkin parka or a skeleton hoodie.   

Yeah, alright.  Go ahead.  Keep it up.  Embarrass your canine.  Make a mug of your mutt.  Push poochie past the breaking point.   

You may think it’s cute and all to have man’s best friend decked out in festive, seasonal garb but we’ll see who’s laughing when Cujo’s treating your jugular like a Milkbone.

Puttin’ On The Ritz?

Free tacos. Something to do with baseballs and sliders (thought those were at White Castle).  Not my scene, but I don’t mind seeing the Bell lose some overhead.

The Frighteners

October 25, 2007

TV Squad ranks the Top Ten Scariest TV Characters.  Sure, they start off with a guy from the original Star Trek series (nothing incredibly scary going on there other than Shatner’s acting) but they sure get it right later on with efforts from X-Files, Buffy and even Doctor Who.  I know I’ve gotten the willies from half of them.  And one caused me to sleep with the lights on when I was nine.

Costume Drama

October 25, 2007

I saw a letter in one of those Ann Landers-like columns last week, forget which one, one of the many that seemed to have popped up since the long-running columnist’s death. Anyway, it was from a woman who has concerned because her husband was upset that their son wanted to dress up as one of the Powerpuff Girls for Halloween. The wife thought that the son should be allowed to be what he pleased as it was simply make-believe fun. The father, of course, was outraged that his son would want to be a “girl” and wanted to force him to be something more masculine, like a fireman or a soldier.

Well, I can’t say I remember the columnist’s response to this missive, but I will say this for what it’s worth:

For crying out loud, mom, will you stop airing our family squabbles in the syndicated press! And tell dad I’m an adult now and I’ll be whatever I want to be for Halloween!

Jeez.  Is it any wonder I wish I was adopted?

Do you remember the show Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher?

If so, why?

Devil Without A Clue

October 23, 2007

Apparently Kid Rock was arrested in Atlanta for brawling at a Waffle House.

Better watch it, mate!  It’s white trash behaviour like this that allowed K Fed to snag Britney – and I don’t think the human race can handle the superbug that would ensue should you hook up with the trainwreck that is Ms. Spears after sampling Pamela Anderson’s particular brand of skank.
