Scoff Alien Skull Shotgun

Still too sluggish to post a really full shotgun. What’s with the alien skull? Read on.

  • How-To: BroadCatching using RSS + BitTorrent to automatically download TV shows (Tech)
    • BitTorrent can get me my favorite shows when I forget to record them?? Sounds great.
  • Wiki Game (Game)
    • They’ve thought up an interesting game using Wikipedia. Basically, It’s a race to get back to a target page in the fewest number of links. Kind of an online “Six Degrees” type activity.
  • The Danger of JackHammers (Image)
    • Notice anything in the picture more dangerous to an unborn child than the sound of jackhammers? Me too. Sharon sent this along.
  • Thanksgiving Horror Tales (Article)
    • Imagine being a Thanksgiving cooking help line staffer. People have the most bizarre questions.
    • And one phone call began: “You don’t know anything about kitty litter, do you?”
  • Anagram Generator (Fun Tool)
    • Nothing beats the fun of anagrams. OK, so that’s not true. But I never knew I could rearrange the letters in “Aces Full of Links” into “Scoff Alien Skull” until I visited this site.
  • Low Rider (Image)
    • I have no explanation. Safe for work. Is that the Knight Industries 2000 in the background?
  • 12-sided Calendar (Crafts)
    • Fold your own unique calendar!
  • A Collection of Word Oddities and Trivia (Word fun)
    • On which I learned about “LLANFAIRPWLLGWYNGYLLGOGERYCHWYRNDROBWLLLLANTYSILIOGOGOGOCH” which is the longest place name in the world, beating out Massachusett’s own “Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchabunagungamaugg”

Scoff Alien Skull huh?

I think "Vomit, Nicely Begun" has got you beat. ;-)

Then there's "Nice Bum Longevity" ... apparently I can be an ass for an exceptionally long period of time.

Ah well "Ye Tumbling Novice" should get back to his own blog I think. :)

I sent someone a Llanfairetc. postcard when I was in Wales. I don't remember who. Not you, I guess. ;)

Not wanting to be left out of the anagram fun, I have some interesting hidden meanings of my own. Perhaps I am merely giving out subliminal instructions: "Disrobe. Swirl. Wait." Maybe I'm merely making a statement on society: "Libido writes wars." Well, whatever you may think of me, don't forget that I am a "wild, wise arborist"!

BTW, can you guess who this anagram is?

"Whose bugger?"

You know, the only way that picture of the pregnant lady could have been any more ironic was if she had a bottle of beer in the other hand.

Whose Bugger=George W. Bush

:P
