Know Your Obscure Norse Goddesses!

Very little is written about the warrior princess SkëlärthGrøønt, who took the form of an alpaca sharing a head with a soccer mom from Keosaqua, Iowa. One ancient text refers to a similar creature intervening in battle to confound the invading Visigoths with a series of increasingly complex riddles involving buttered toast.

New on Dateline: Kitty Catches Tail, but at What Price?

Some say he’s not playing with a full deck because he uses his claws. Others think he’s an overachiever…

An Offer He Shouldn’t Have Refused

Jack Woltz fluttered his eyes as the the first rays of sunlight brushed his face. He could hear the servants busy in the kitchen downstairs, and he ran through the day’s itinerary in his mind: Breakfast on the patio, a brisk swim, then a ride on his favorite stallion before his afternoon meeting at Paramount Pictures.

His leg brushed against an object in the bed with him. Feeling hesitantly along the covers, his hand detected a familiar outline. Woltz flung away the bedsheets and gaped in horror into the lifeless eyes staring back at him, and realized — only too late — that Don Corleone was not a man to be trifled with.

Suck it, Hans Christian Andersen. I’ve always been gorge.

I’m sure this lovely cygnet would never say such words, Andrea M.

Bobby and Carl Contemplate Mischief

“Go ahead, ring his doorbell. I dare ya. I double dare ya.”

No way! He has an oven in his basement where he cooks kids and eats ‘em.”

“Oh, you’re such a big fat liar, Carl!”

“Well, that’s what I heard. Janie Platz says that’s what happened to Timmy Doyle.”

“Timmy set fire to the drapes and got shipped off to military school, you dummy.”

“Well, if you know so much, why don’t you ring his doorbell?”

Another example of mind control from Brinke G.

Going Down?

(All right, don’t panic… I’m definitely moving, so I must be walking… So, if I’m walking, I need to move my legs… OK, that’s a little better, but something still isn’t right… Maybe I’m really swimming… Yeah, that would explain a few things…)

OK…

GO!

Rube-Goldberg rockers OK Go are up to their old tricks with the video for their single “White Knuckles.” The band swears the video was shot in one fluid take (take 74, to be exact), and this Gizmodo article has backstage pics and a breakdown of how they did it.

Yes, you can buy music from these guys.
