Okay, if you’ve read my blog before, you already know that I am a HUGE fan of irony….so, despite the morbid nature of this story, I can’t help but enjoy it. It’s irony at its ultimate endpoint. It’s almost hard to believe that it’s not an urban myth.

Once again, I am awash in schadenfreude!!!
The main story, of course, is that Britney Spears’ little sister, a 16-year-old star on Nickelodeon, is pregnant.

But the funny part is this….

I can’t decide what’s funnier – the fact that the woman who raised that trainwreck Britney thought she actually had the legitimate history to write a PARENTING book – or the fact that the publisher suddenly woke up and said “Wait! We have to put this book on hold now.” NOW the publisher suddenly realizes there might be an integrity issue!! Where was that before, when they actually gave her an advance to write the book in the first place???!?!?!?!

Ahhh, schadenfreude. (I know it’s bad karma, but sometimes I just can’t help myself!)

You know, I just love the irony that the news channel that pretends to be an arbiter of ‘old-fashioned American values’ is also the channel that uses this kind of video for such a high percentage of its stories.

Here’s why it’s okay that your favorite comedy shows (Daily Show, Colbert Report) followed by your favorite other shows, will be in reruns until the writers’ strike is over.

Anyone who makes money from writing or other creative careers needs to be supportive of the writers’ strike.

I appreciate this guy’s creativity and his ability, but the end product is as creepy to me as the real deal.
You’ll have to scroll down to see the completed spiders after the jump.
Yuck. Spiders of any kind. Yuck.

One of my favorite toys as a kid
(I think it was a favorite because my cousins had it and I didn’t, so it had that elusive quality to it – and you know, the getting is sometimes better than the having.

And, apparently, if you use the code on this page, you can play with Spirograph now, too. Of course, it doesn’t seem to be working right when I’m trying to put the code in this blog entry, so good luck.

My dear designer friends, you will truly get the most enjoyment out of this. But you do not have to do design work for a living to laugh. Make sure you watch the Amazing! video too

If you find yourself not laughing, and you have anything to do with advertising or marketing, you may be holding up a mirror to your most annoying feedback.

…while you’re eating lunch at your desk….try this puppy out and see how far down the ‘endless‘ page you can go….once again, good ol’ Will at clicked provides a fine bit o’ entertainment…

I adore Warren Buffett…a billionaire with a brain and a conscience and a heart….

Dear God in Heaven! If this is the kind of person who’s representing us to the rest of the world, no wonder we’ve got a bad reputation.
