I'd Like Stuart Smalley In the Senate

Coleman vs. Franken!

Choose which ballots to dismiss and which to keep!

Speaking of (or in) Accents

Some are a bit off, but impressive nonetheless!

Ponder This

It is World Philosophy Day!

Idol Fail

Why can't I own a Canadian?

I can't believe I had forgotten to post about this classic. Truly one of my favorite websites, and all the more glorious because so many people can't seem to figure out that it's satire!

Do Not Feed After Midnight

This undated handout photo shows a creature called a pygmy tarsier, believed for the eight decades to have been extinct.

The New and the Old

Rob Thomas, who many of you may know as the creator of the splendiferious Veronica Mars, is once again working with ABC to bring back Cupid, which he created and produced 10 years ago. Up there is the promo for the new series.

Down below is the first ten minutes of the first episode of the original version, starring Jeremy Piven and Paula Marshall.

Of course, like so many other TV shows I've enjoyed, the original was killed after a short amount of time.

Here's to hoping that ABC will wake up and keep Pushing Dasies around.

I've found my replacement.

This solves all the IT problems using AI.
