Tuesday Quickies: Teething Edition

I had a theme for this week, but I'm sleep deprived and I never get my shit together to find ten links for it. Yes, that's right: I am too tired to surf the web. So have some things from my bookmarks that have made me giggle.

Don't try to steal this dude's iPhone:
Chased Down a Thief Today (Localocracy)

Don't forget--Vajazzling still exists:
Sexist Beatdown: Vajazzling, and its Inevitable Male Counterpart, Dickerating (Washington City Paper)

Don't forget to turn off the lensflare machine:
Star Trek: How It Should Have Ended (HISHE)

Don't read this somewhere you can't laugh out loud:
The Alot is better than you at everything (Hyperbole and a Half)

Don't expect the usual relationship advice from someone named 'Mann Landers':
The Mann Landers Column

Don't send these cards to relatives who don't understand the young people's humor:
Foxy Blunt

Don't declare yourself King of the Geeks until you take this quiz along with John Hodgman and Patton Oswalt:
Science Fiction Trivia Challenge (WFMU)

I don't believe there's a town named "Fingringhoe." They must have made that up.
Britain's Rudest Place Names (The Telegraph)

Don't buy a jetpack for $90,000. Wait for it to go on sale.
Safe and Affordable Jetpack: Just $90,000 (Wired)

From the wayback machine: "I don't think this internet thing will catch on."
Why the Web Won't Be Nirvana (Newsweek)


  1. I'd like to thank you for linking to "Mann Landers" but my gratitude for that is canceled out by my horror at the reminder of "vajazzling" which I had previously blocked out of my mind. So my thanks is now tinged with sarcasm, more like, "Gee, thanks a lot!"

    But I still love your blog.

  2. Oh, Michele, believe me, I wish I could forget about vajazzling too. But we keep getting searches like "how to decorate your genitals" in our referrer logs, and I keep getting reminded. Sigh.

    We're glad you still love us though.

  3. Now I'm wondering how many people search for "how to decorate your genitals" on a daily basis. And WHY.

    Wait, no. Please don't answer that.
