Toads, Bugs, and Leo DiCaprio

Quiz me! I got 5 and Bill got, any wagers?... 6.

At the bottom of the page I noticed Louis Theroux (TV Nation, anyone?) has an article about the most hated family in America. I hven't read it yet but he's usually worth a moment.

Flying Spaghetti Monster is my Co-pilot

Yarr-Vestite suspended "The school...remains adamant that their decision to suspend Killian for a day has nothing to do with his religion, and quite a lot to do with his repeated refusal to heed warnings against wearing pirate outfits."

Arr. Brilliant!

Saw it and liked it. And I just saw an ad for the album that is using a Chank! Font. Hooray!

what!? nothing about thawing a colossal squid with a giant microwave?

Quiz me!
Bill's a "Top Dog" with 6, "no thanks to those perplexing Belgians."

I got 4. I'm not proud of the ones I got either. It just turns out that the world corresponded to my wishes in those few instances.

Here's a preview for next week, EuroMyths! -or-"What do European conspiracy theorists obsess about since they don't have Hillary Clinton?" Briefly; corgi bans and offal tubes.

Malcolm was born a year after the war started.

Bonus Quiz Me!

I got 6, Mike has a superior 8. And I think we're pretty well informed. It's just a lot of crappy stuff to remember.

Feeling bound up? Meditate, burn some police-scented incense and contemplate the way the leopard walks

Quiz me!

I'm walking tall with a 5 and proved the advice to never switch away from your first guess.

Bill got a striding 7.

How are you at guessing wildly?

Quiz me!

I rule Cricket! I got 3!!
Bill got a 2. We're both "out for a duck" whatever that means. Maybe we'll be back in ten minutes?

Are you not so hot at cricket, the precocious nephew of the sports world? Practice up!

Wonder what the heck has been going on with the Cap since, um 1943?

"Daredevil's power is being "not-quite" blind"
So there's some kind of miserable comic series with all the Marvel heroes in it. It's the one that killed-off Captain America.
And some guy stripped out all the lame dialogue and rewrote it funnier.

BBC NEWS | Special Reports | Weekly world news quiz

Quiz me! Woo hoo. Bill smashes it up with a 7 again. That makes him a "Superhero!" but a British one, like Union Jack or Banshee.

I got 4, which makes me, I dunno, a Canadian one like Northern Light or Super Shamou.

Here is the official Canadian Superhero site

Now that's movie reviewing!

300 as reviewed on AICN: "I can’t spoil the plot because THANK GOD THERE ISN’T ONE. Just ass kicking that kicks ass that, while said ass is getting kicked, is kicking yet more ass that’s hitting someone’s balls with a hammer made of ice but the ice is frozen whiskey."

Celebrating your awareness of what the BBC calls news

Did you know the word ORANGUTAN translates to "The little man of the forest?" You did? That's not suprising. I believe that in the world of overexposed animal factoids this is second only to the revelation that the river otter is the Clown Prince of the animal kingdom.

Quiz me! The recording was Rock Blocked!
I got 4 and Bill got 6 saying that he was foiled by Japanese foodstuffs.
I assume that refers to the Ramen question. There is one question in there with a lot of zoo animals mentioned.

Ahhh! Refreshing!

Check out the crazy soap we got. It is embedded with cedar chips that are not only brutal exfoliants but also handy for the home hobbyist. Each bar has enough huge chunks of wood to build a two-man temple or a reasonably capacious car trailer.
Get lost, moth
