Terry Pratchett’s Colour of Magic

In celebration of my recent minor literary milestone, I have decided to share a bit of weirdness from one of my favorite authors, Terry Pratchett. For those of you familiar with the Discworld series, I'm sure you know where I'm going with this. The very first novel in the Discworld series, which takes place on the back of a giant turtle floating through space, was made into a live action movie. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the official trailer to 'Colour of Magic.'

Is it smart to emphasize to parents, the toy-buyers, how goddamn noisy your products are?

PETA Abuses Tiger

From the 'kick a guy when he's down category, PETA plans to put up the above billboard near Tiger Woods Windmere, Florida home to promote spaying and neutering pets. Hopefully no Lorena Bobitt wannabes take it to mean 'neuter your wandering husband'. At least Tiger isn't loosing all his endorsements! (kidding- he has no affiliation with this campaign)

I hate it when this happens

You are just minding your own business, cheering at the game, and some stupid mascot gets all up in your face!!

This would give me indigestion.

Another Hot Dog In The News

How about a more reliable weird hot dog story? Last September a guy attending a Kansas City Royals baseball game at Kauffman Stadium was injured by a flying hot dog. At the September 8th game Slugerrr, the K.C. Royals mascot, threw a hot dog at the stands and it struck John Coomer in the eye. He's now suing the team for $25,000 for the injuries he sustained which included a detached retina and cataracts-OUCH.

Brandon Bird


Brandon Bird is an artist whose style might best be described as "pop culture Norman Rockwell." Pictured above is one of his most famous works, No One Wants to Play Sega with Harrison Ford. Head on over to his website to see more of his work, including a Law & Order themed coloring book, children's letters to Christopher Walken, and a version of The Last Supper featuring 12 James Woodses (and RoboCop).

Archeological Find Or Old Garbage

A 140 year old hot dog has been found on Coney Island. The find was made under Feltman's Kitchen, a famous restaurant on the boardwalk that was once owned by the inventor of the Coney Island hot dog. The dog and a receipt were discovered frozen in a chunk of ice. There are plans to display both on Coney Island starting March 28th. If the above picture isn't enough for you, there is a video at the link. The clip includes interviews with incredulous passers-by.
