"What is oozing out of our ground?"

I found this on Boing Boing. It's the funniest fucking thing I've seen in a while.

Raquel Welch greets the New Age.

I couldn't be sure, but I think I glimpsed Daniel Pinchbeck at the end.

More Raquel Welch here.

I suppose it was only a matter of time.

I've finally been "outed" as an alien. (Just take a look at the caption for the photo accompanying this, er, "revealing" article.)

"Will You Be Here Tomorrow?"

Boing Boing's Xeni Jardin assures us that "[t]his is not a parody of a workplace safety video. This is an actual workplace safety video."

Real or fake, this had me howling with laughter.

"His name is Mac and I want to introduce you to him."

Some of you might remember my appearance in this 80s kid-flick. I was never satisfied with the script and spent many long evenings confined to my trailer arguing with studio execs.

I've been asked to provide a voice commentary for a forthcoming four-disc DVD edition of "Mac and Me." I'll keep you posted.

"Come a little closer and I'll tell you my story."

Is there anything Cartrivision can't do?

Easily the funniest find of the day:

We now pause for an important commercial break.

We now pause for this important message from our sponsors.

How about that Prophet Yahweh? He's like some sort of mash-up between Sun Ra and Blossom Goodchild.

This functions as a brilliant metaphor for just about every social and political institution I can think of.

Hey, it's on the Internet. It must be true!

Kal Korff has pioneered original concepts and techniques in several fields of study. These include archaeology, artificial intelligence, computing, criminology, forensics, graphical user interfaces, historical research, human interface design, hypermedia, multimedia, nanotechnology, physics, and weaponry.

But seriously -- can you think of anyone in the known history of mankind with a resume even remotely comparable to this? I can't. Bucky Fuller and Arthur C. Clarke don't even come close.

Friday, September 12, 2008 is right up there with the indispensably funny "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks.

You've probably already seen this one on Boing Boing. If not . . .

As a vegetarian and squirrel-lover, I must say I find the proceedings in the above clip distinctly revolting. But the absurdity factor is so high that I can't help but look on in fascination.

Scientists get death threats over Large Hadron Collider

The head of public relations, James Gillies, says he gets tearful phone calls, pleading for the £4.5 billion machine to stop.

"They phone me and say: "I am seriously worried. Please tell me that my children are safe," said Gillies.

Emails also arrive every day that beg for reassurance that the world will not end, he explained.

Others are more aggressive. "There are a number who say: "You are evil and dangerous and you are going to destroy the world."

Group Asks for Divine Intervention to Ease Oil Prices

As the price of oil continues to rise, some are turning to God and prayer for an answer to their financial troubles.

The Pray at the Pump Movement, founded by Rocky Twyman, has been holding prayer vigils at gas stations across the country.

This made me smile.

Blog of the day: The "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks

The name says it all!
Here's life in Missouri for you:

Buy a car and get a free gun at U.S. car dealer

Every buyer so far "except one guy from Canada and one old guy" has elected to take the gun, Muller said. Muller recommends his customers select a Kel-Tec .380 pistol.

Canadians -- such insufferable pansies!

Perhaps I'll buy a car from this guy and use the free gun to blow my brains out.
