More Amazing Movie Magic!

Welcome back, film fans!  Time once again for a “sneak peek” at the secrets of Tinseltown.  Today we’re on the set of Cheapo Productions’ “Ultra Power Turtles III: The Quest for Pocket Lint” to watch our high-flying heroes actually take to the air!

How do they do it?  “Now, your big studios would dangle the stars from an expensive rig, and blot out the wires in post-production,” says “Turtles” director Steve Rancid.  “But we’re kinda strapped, so we just hold them up to the camera and make ‘whooshing’ noises.”

Friday Haiku: What’choo Lookin’ At?

Stoic sentinels

Bacon Got Back

I like pig butts and I cannot lie,
You other animals can’t deny
When the pigs walk in with those double-decker ‘tocks
I go “squee” when I see them hocks…

The Cliché Hollywood Nightmare Scene

It begins with a grating chord of violins; the camera creeps in slowly…

The subject twists in agony, as thoughts from the subconscious bubble to her lips…

The violins screech up and down like angry bees; the subject’s writhing becomes more and more desperate, until she can stand it no longer, AND –

GGHAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH! She bolts upright and stares into the camera!

Those Three Little Words

I mean, yeah, it was cute at first, when the relationship was just getting started, and there’d be this giddy rush to be the one to say it first, you know, because it felt so good to hear it come back at you…

But lately, it’s not the same.  He says it, and then she says it, and then they both say it, so I feel like I gotta say it, and it just turns into a call-and-response thing…

We like you, Ellen M., but we don’t “like you” like you.

Hi, I’m the New Monster Under Your Bed

Yes, moved in last Thursday. Still living out of the boxes; ach, such a mess, don’t get me started. Anyhoo, just wanted to pop up and say hello, and I promise to start terrorizing you as soon as possible, but we’re so busy right now what with the change-of-address cards and getting our youngest into kindergarten.

I Think Stephen Colbert Hacked This Post

Snorgling machine is more like it, Samantha B.

Tonight, Make It a Floofmann’s Night

For the special times—when only the best will do—reach for the hamster trusted by more families than any other: Floofmann’s Canned Ham.

That’s because Floofmann’s chooses only the freshest, proshest hams, with 30 percent more ‘tocks,* picked at their peak of redonku-liciousness.

And now, so that you may savor the jaw-dropping cleverness:

* Do we even want to know how you got 30% more ‘tocks, Julie and Ron?

No, Really, I Work Here

It’s just that—well, this is kind of embarrassing—my uniform is at the cleaners.

Little accident with the ketchup dispenser, if you must know.

That’s Knot Funny

For today’s busy serial prankster, the most important skill to master is time management.  For example, tie your victim’s shoelaces together first; this will keep him engaged and distracted, giving you time to short-sheet his bed, fill the sugar bowl with salt, and hide his car keys.
