German post office in tizzy over non-standard shipment and other news of the world

Quiz me!
I got a 4, my best showing in weeks. Some guy got a 7, though. That guy was Bill.
I had only heard about one of these this week which is unusual. You'd think news of an important vaccine would have broken through to me. Instead, I know about the famous people baby. That's what I get for klsitening to KS95 instead of MPR in the morning.

That better be m-----------' rare bird eggs in your m-----------' pants

Quiz me! I got a 4! It's a tie! Bill got four because he rarely looks into the pants packing activites of Australians.

Quiz me again becasue I missed last week! Bill got a perfect score so of course I got 6. Curse you photographs of a famous composer's spouse!

UPDATE: Operating in it's usual flawless fashion, the Wayback Machine carried Sherman and I back to last week to correct this link to the 7/14 quiz. While I was waiting for Sherman to finish up an errand at the sports book I took a side trip back to 1841 in Baltimore, where I scared the piss out of Mr. Edgar Allan Poe.

"Tony, have you tried these rolls? They taste like ass."

Accident? You decide. If you watch a lot of BBC, that is. Tough quiz. I got all the American ones though. 4/10.

I recommend reading the original post, and giving most of the responses a pass. You should, however, click the link regarding the blimp.

Who is this great new singer?

Ich Liebe Hoff I can only hold out so long when an artist has dedicated his life to speaking a message directly to me and uses every medium (except radio) to reach me with it.
Finally I can see the unversal appeal, the humor, and the brilliance. You can rest assured that there is more to follow...

Strangers with Candy

This review makes me excited to see this movie, and makes me horrified at being excited to see this movie.

Hulk Smash! Plan big hit in series reboot!

Is he my hero? Looked up this dude on, ahem, wikipedia, and saw a long list of movies that will change my life.
Hulk! (follow the link to confirm that they are going to pretend the Ang Lee one didn't happen ala Superman Returns to A Universe In which Richard Pryor Did Not Appear)

Lemons to Lemonade

I don't generally flog my brother's blog, but he picked up a pretty terrific news story. I'm not sure how we missed it.

Read the whole thing if you want, it's not bad, but be sure not to miss the two paragraphs starting with "The Mosquito".
