Three Wolf Moon tshirt: magical powers will be yours

Order yours today from Amazon for anywhere from $9.14 – $15.59.  Read one satisfied customer’s review:

This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that’s when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to ‘howl at the moon’ from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn’t have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn’t settle for the first thing that comes to him.

I arrived at Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling along side out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt.

Pros: Fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women
Cons: Only 3 wolves (could probably use a few more on the ‘guns’), cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed, wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark.

I suspect the shirt may have been targeted by some merry pranksters.  Or maybe I lack faith in the power of the 3 Wolves?  Either way, there are 100’s of funny reviews here.  Check them out.

Thanks to Pye for tipping us to this fantastic product.

Best martial-arts fight scene EVER

May 20, 2009

Just……just awesome.  So very bad that it’s brilliant.  Terrible camera work, inexpensive gore, bad fight choreography, and 1 awesome line delivered after the bad guy has been dispatched.  This is a must watch from the film Undefeatable.

Many, many thanks to Abe for sending this in….

Pac-Man trashes a French supermarket

April 22, 2009

Seriously.  French prankster Remi Gaillard dons a kick-ass Pac-Man costume and is pursued around a supermarket by people wearing equally kick-ass ghost costumes.  Good times.

Street-trials riding is flippin’ amazing.

Watch in awe as Danny MacAskill has his way with the streets of Edinburgh on a bike.  Think of this as parkour on a bike.  Amazing stuff here.  The featured song is “The Funeral” by Band of Horses.
