“I’ll stop doing this when you stop calling my mom names. But let’s be honest, she is the 800-pound gorilla in the room, so it’s in your best interest to not insult us, you silly striped mule.”

Nahnny-nahnny-poo-poo, ThinkBrinke.

Is This Thing On?

Hey, is that a camera?  Am I on TV?   Hey, Aunt Louise, I’m on TV!

But wait — there’s even more Curious George action at the National Geographic site, including the thrilling “poking the lens with a stick” sequence!  Thanks as always to MarilynT.!

Amazing Picture of the Day

This photo will force you to do two things, in this order:

1) Softly gasp and mutter “Awesome.”

2) Yawn.

So What Did You Do For Fun When You Were a Kid, Grandpa?

“… back in those days, we didn’t any of this fancy-lad HD, 3-D, DVD whatzidingle, no sir.  Paid a nickel to take the streetcar down to the Odeon every Friday night.  Only cost a nickel to get in, and a large popcorn, that was another nickel…”

“… and that got you a feature, a newsreel, three cartoons, a travelogue from some island where the women didn’t wear shirts, Gaylord Mercer on the Mighty Wurlitzer, a trapeze act, and a live reenactment of the Battle of Little Big Horn, with horses.”

Something to ponder while you enjoy Avatar, Kerry M.

A Public Service Announcement

It’s a tragic story:  A busy kitchen, a distracted parent, a curious toddler, and a cupboard carelessly left open — the perfect ingredients for a recipe… of addiction! Once a child develops a taste for kitten huffing, he or she is often lost… for life.

That’s why the scientists here at CuteLabs labor ’round the clock to make pets safer, with innovations like the Child-Proof Kitteh™… because we care.
