Pandaphants. They’re hilarious.

My sister sent me this a few weeks ago, and I should be punished for not posting it immediately. It’s amazing.

From BuzzFeed:

At the Bangkok Zoo, people stopped visiting the elephants, because they were more interested in the pandas. So zookeepers did the only logical thing. By which I mean the dumbest, weirdest thing. Here’s how that turned out.

Dog Mayor!

Rabbit Hash, KY knows how to run an election.  Meet their mayor, Lucy Lou.

Personally, I think the cat candidate was robbed.  Travis was 2nd runner up- from his bio:

Travis chose Rabbit Hash and you should choose this cat to be the new Mayor of Rabbit Hash. He is the ONLY candidate that actually resides in Rabbit Hash.”  Sad.  More information on this historic election here.

Donuts destroy sewer system

In case you didn’t know already, donuts can do harm.

“The suit details problems with the plant dating as far back as 2004, describing a sewer facility permeated by the smell of doughnuts, pipes clogged with corrosive slime and the resulting raw sewage leaks that eventually shut down the southern Fairfax sewer system.

At one point, public works officials ran a closed-circuit camera along a pipe to show the grease deposits, only to get the camera stuck in the buildup.”

Oh dear.

RIP Anna Bag,

This is the best bag LeSportSac makes, Nora and I can both confirm that.  But now it’s DISCONTINUED!!   WHYYY?!  It is what we’ve called “clown car bag” because so much shit fits in it and it doesn’t even look bulky.  Observe below (though this is a pattern I hate):

I even wrote them a damn email.  I say lets boycott until Anna is back.

Frank Lloyd Wright via Lego

I love me some Frank Lloyd Wright. And I love me some Lego. I mean, who doesn’t? People who don’t love Lego suck.

Anywho, Lego has a new Architecture series, and they’ve got two Frank Lloyd Wright sets on the way. Just a reminder that my birthday is approaching.

The two sets are Fallingwater and The Guggenheim.

Grain Edit’s interview with Frank Chimero

I’m a big fan of Frank Chimero. His state illustrations are fantastic (when’s New York, Frank? Or Vermont, or Indiana??), and I used to have this inspirational poster as my desktop at work for a while (the “Aw, Damnit” part got to me, eventually). Anyway, Grain Edit interviewed Frank recently, and it’s really fascinating. I’m not even a graphic designer or much of an artist (though I’m known to doodle geometric shapes on notebooks at work).

The whole interview is a great read, but my favorite part is when Frank describes how he comes up with the ideas for the states. Here’s an excerpt:

Here, I’m trying out a few ideas. Something long and curling? An alligator? A fish? A manatee? Nah. That manatee doesn’t look like one. It’s too skinny. Not cowish enough. Doesn’t work well with the shape. The alligator is nice, but too predictable? His legs don’t integrate in very nicely into the shape. A train? Oh. Wow. That’s nice. Maybe we can use the smoke to trail off to the left to fill that difficult space. Ok. Bingo!

So cool. Anyway, Frank also mentions this great video he did for Good Magazine. I hadn’t seen it before and I suggest you watch it both for his great drawings and for the info.

We evacuated the plane together and were standing near each other on the starboard wing. I thought I saw you glance in my direction a couple times and I thought you were really cute, but I wasn’t brave enough to say hello and besides, you were listening to your iPod and I didn’t want to interrupt. I was the guy with the orange flotation vest and Gucci loafers. Tell me what color my tie was. Next time we crash land, I will get up the nerve to say hello!

Mortgage crisis explained using Pokemon! Thank youuu

Economist Kevin Nguyen explains the country’s economic woes to his younger sister, using Pokémon as an analogy. Seriously.

Kevin: Have you been following the news?

Olivia: Yeah, I don’t really get it.

Kevin: Imagine that I let you borrow $50, but in exchange for my generosity, you promise to pay me back the $50 with an extra $10 in interest. To make sure you pay me back, I take your Charizard Pokémon card as collateral.

Olivia: Kevin, I don’t play Pokémon anymore.

Kevin: I’m getting to that. Let’s say that the Charizard is worth $50, so in case you decide to not return my money, at least I’ll have something that’s worth what I loaned out.

Olivia: Okay.

Kevin: But one day, people realize that Pokémon is stupid and everyone decides that the cards are overvalued. That’s right—everybody turned twelve on the same day! Now your Charizard is only worth, say, $25.

An infuriating video

New buzzword: Gotcha journalism.

From Wonkette: Because she’s masochistic, Sarah Palin went back for more inquisition with her MORTAL FOIL, the ancient fire dragon Katie Couric. Of course this time she brought her actual father, John McCain, to come and sit in and change the subject when Katie Couric starts getting mean. Palin sounds, uh, better(?), and is able to not completely mangle her 2002-era platitudinous bullcrap about “the terrorists.” On the other hand, Palin comes off as extremely pathetic because JOHN MCCAIN HAS TO DEFEND HER CONSTANTLY FROM KATIE COURIC.

Now that’s a funny image

Taken from the NY Times.

In the Roosevelt Room after the session, the Treasury secretary, Henry M. Paulson Jr., literally bent down on one knee as he pleaded with Nancy Pelosi, the House Speaker, not to “blow it up” by withdrawing her party’s support for the package over what Ms. Pelosi derided as a Republican betrayal.

“I didn’t know you were Catholic,” Ms. Pelosi said, a wry reference to Mr. Paulson’s kneeling, according to someone who observed the exchange. She went on: “It’s not me blowing this up, it’s the Republicans.”

Mr. Paulson sighed. “I know. I know.”

Amy Poehler: Leaving ‘Saturday Night Live’ will be ‘hard’

Tuesday, September 16th 2008, 2:16 PM

Amy Poehler is leaving “Saturday Night Live” after this season in order to focus on family.

The comedienne/actress, who expecting her first child with “Arrested Development” star Will Arnett, talked about parting with the show during an interview with Men’s Vogue.

“It’s gonna be really hard – Boyz II Men hard – to say goodbye to yesterday,” Poehler jokingly said of her nearly seven-year stint on the show.

“‘SNL’ was dangerous, late-night, last-minute and star-studded, but like any good drug, you need to know when to put it down.”

According to an SNL rep, the actress is staying with the show until her baby is born.

Though the mom-to-be makes no guarantee for a return to late-night TV, the star is reportedly working on her own show with “The Office” producers and writers at NBC.

Just last weekend, Poehler made headlines again for her spot-on portrayal of Senator Hillary Clinton in SNL’s season premiere.

I guess I have to cite The NY Daily News for the story, but jesus, Daily News, lay off the linking to your goddamn photos. Just report the fucking story.

obama? what a fabric!

this is the best news story of all time.

Neighbors of Andy Lacasse say the sign, which says “OBAMA HALF-BREED MUSLIN [sic]” breaches the fine line between free speech and inappropriateness.

“I got nothing good to say about Obama,” Lacasse told News 13.

Lacasse put the sign in his front yard four days ago.

“If I see anybody touching that sign, I got a club sitting right over there,” Lacasse said.
