I’ve Got My Eye on You, Pal…

… and I’ve got my other eye on your friend, there, so don’t try anything funny.  And, um … if you could just stand next to each other and try not to move in different directions, that would be great, thanks.

Seriously, could one of you jiggle my head a little?

You’ve opened our eyes, Jaime G.

"Stop standing around, people, we’ve got a fashion shoot to do!  Steve, I need you to move the herd of zebras to the left, they’re blocking the Christmas trees.  Trapeze artists, dangle a little lower, I can’t get you in frame.  Whoa, that’s enough makeup on the ballerinas, Marcie, we’re going for the natural look here.  OK, people — let’s make a statement!  (Hm, I think I’ll give this shot an F-17 with 800 ISO and 99 44/100 percent hydro-jammaframmitz.)"

You can tell it's an awesome camera; it's bigger than I am.

G’day, Cousin

Crikey!  According to Australian researchers, humans and kangaroos shared a common ancestor 150 million years ago and have similar sections of DNA.  "We thought they’d be completely scrambled, but they’re not," said one expert.  "There is great chunks of the human genome which is sitting right there in the kangaroo genome."  Well, this helps explain Yahoo Serious.

We Take You Now to King Neptune Memorial Speedway

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Atlantianapolis 500, and if you’ve just joined us, it’s been a thrilling race so far.  In a stunning upset, odds-on favorite Mario Clamdretti dropped out of the race when his 300-seahorsepower racer crashed on the far turn.  And as we enter the final laps, I see that current leader Ridley McFlatback is getting the signal from his pit crew to come in for service …

Check my left flipper; it's running a little hot.

I hear he’s got endorsement deals with Shell Oil AND Turtle Wax, Brinke G.
