1% More Shotgun!

  • Southern Mississippi library system bans Jon Stewart’s best-selling book (Ridiculous News)
    • Libraries in Mississippi join Wal-Mart in banning Stewart’s book over the naked SCOTUS picture within. If it’s naked, it must be porn. JimC alerted me to this one.
  • Woman Tore off Ex-Lover’s Testicle, Court Told (More Ridiculous News)
    • “A jilted woman today admitted ripping off her ex-lover’s testicle with her bare hands after he refused to have sex with her. Amanda Monti, 24, flew into a rage after her ex-boyfriend, 37-year-old Geoffrey Jones, rejected her advances at the end of a drunken house party. She yanked off his left testicle, which was later handed to him by a friend with the words: ‘That’s yours.’”
    • Via Messenger Puppet
  • biojewelry (Strange Commerce)
    • A company website that claims to be interested in culturing bone for jewelry. Like wedding rings.
  • Mushroom Expert.com (Reference)
    • A one stop location for learning about those wonderful fungii.
  • The Duel (Flash Animation)
    • A penguin and a squirrel and the Duke boys… it’s all too much. Set to banjo music, it makes little or no sense.
  • Uniroyal Fun Cup (Racing Game)
    • A fun little flash racing game. Really good graphics for flash.
  • Die Screaming With Sharp Things In Your Head (Weird)
    • Your source for photos of impaled garden gnomes. And you didn’t even know you needed such a source.
  • FlashcardExchange (Education Resource)
    • A place where people upload flashcards for other people to use. Flashcards mostly for vocabulary, but also for sign language and such. You can view them online, or print the printable ones!
  • The New Adventures of the Elephant Man - Part 3 (Flash)
    • Yeah, it’s pretty much true.
  • Make A Flake (Flash Game)
    • Make your own paperless paper snowflake.
  • Choose The Blue (Activism)
    • Where’s your money going when you buy from, say WalMart of Home Depot? Choose The Blue can help you find out. Thanks, Maggie.
  • Bush uses new nickname for senator.
    • First Pootie-poot and now this. If you like having a person around who lies to act like he’s your boss and he can call you whatever diminutive name he likes, you’ll love our president. A senator learns that there is no getting through to this bozo, as he adheres to the letter of the request but misses the spirit of it.
  • Clean Your Screen For Free (Funny Flash)
    • This application gives you a free and time-tested way of cleaning your monitor. Try it out!
  • MARATHON Trilogy - Free! (Video game)
    • Bungee has released its classic Macintosh FPS game “Marathon” for anyone to download and play. That’s awesome.

Interesting shotgun this week. I keep coming back to the dueling squirrel and penguin. Clearly the best of the week for me.

In terms of information, I mostly found Choose Blue to be discouraging. Every category I looked in seemed to be drowning in red. I suppose that is because the red party puts business before people.

I'm definitely going back to the flashcards site. That looks to be a huge resource.

Agreed on the Choose Blue. But now I've found another reason to like Sara Lee. I have no excuse not to pick up a pie on the way home. A BLUE berry pie! :)

LOL! I always wondered why I didn't like cherry pie or cherry cheesecake. I preferred blueberry. Perhaps it is genetic. Although, I do like mixed berry creations - blueberry, strawberry, and raspberry. Hmmmmmm.

I actually like cherries better, but sometimes I just don't need to see any more red.

Oh, god, is there anything better than a squirrel and a banjo?

Add in the General Lee, and we've got a party!

I'm not sure, thought, what Burt Reynolds was doing in that canoe...

I rented "Deliverance" this past weekend. Now I really get The Duel. The pigs make perfect sense.
