For $630,000 you too can have a chrome Lamborghini

August 28, 2008

I think you could see yourself in it….and by that I mean your reflection. I mean it looks cool, but with the insurance and all…oh, I’m going to have to think this one over. I mean, I’m not sure I’d really feel comfortable flaunting my wealth in such an obvious manner. Also, this would end all debate about the size of my penis.

Holy schnikies that’s a drainage problem.

August 28, 2008

You’re out for a drive on the freeway, a bit of a storm kicks up, not too bad, when suddenly you’re driving into a geyser. Be sure to watch the whole thing as just when you think it can’t get worse…..

Olympic gymnasts slangin’ Ortega Taco products rather awkwardly.

August 28, 2008

Why does this commercial almost seem like a parody of athletes endorsing products? It reminds me of an 80’s ad. I don’t feel comfortable.

1200 lbs. of cheese carved to make a Statue of Liberty sculpture

August 28, 2008

And captured with time-lapse photography for your viewing pleasure. I wish they hadn’t captured the atrocious music though. This gentleman, Troy Landwehr, is actually referred to as a “Champion Cheese Carver.” Signs you live in an opulent society:

1. Very, very large man.

2. Said large man has time and energy to devote to carving, not eating, a food for public display.

3. Once said sculpture is displayed, the unwashed masses not only don’t stone the large man to death for wasting food, they honor him with the title of “Champion.”

This probably took some time.

Cops crack the living (explitive) out of a DNC protester

August 28, 2008

Crazy video footage of the police in Denver at the Democratic National Convention. Some cop in riot gear jacks this little lady right to ground with a baton. Later, that same woman seems to be describing what just happened, when she’s snatched away by what appears to be the same cop that hit her earlier. Free speech and right to assembly heard whimpering.

What Michael Jackson would look like without his own on call plastic surgeon.

August 28, 2008

The Daily Mail just ran the photo below of what Michael Jackson would look like at 50, according to “experts.” Contrast that with the recent photo of The King of Pop below. Quite a difference. The article also talks about how Jackson is in serious debt but reportedly turned down a 30 concert deal in London where he would be paid $1 million per show. Wow. For a tenth of that money I’ll do the whole MJ catalog and dance my arse off. Badly.

The Hacked USB drive is guaranteed to get you some funny looks.

This is an actual 2 GB flash drive for your computer.  Worth a few laughs.  No idea on pricing or availability.  From GizModo.

Hillary supporter in tears as she painfully discusses how she won’t vote for anyone this election.

August 27, 2008

Seriously…..like Hillary and Barack are really all that different.

China uses an effective speed bump to slow down traffic *coughs*people trying to defect*coughs*

August 27, 2008

Authorities in the ShanXi province of China apparently had enough of speeders.  So, they erected these 100 ft. long sections of concrete.  Standing 2 ft. high, they’re curved to maintain a constant slow speed.  Why is it when I look at them all I think of is how fast could I drive a car through there and end up on the other side in relatively good shape?  Also, it’s not my car.
