Poison Squad

Poison Squad from Morpho Animation Studio on Vimeo.



From what I can deduce, this bizarre cartoon exists only as a trailer reel so far. But I'd certainly watch a full episode!

Go Forth and Profit-Maximize, Plus Brain-Dead Art and Booby-Trap Boo-boo

★ ★ ★ ★!

Prosperity Ministry: Shareholder James Solakian sued the board of directors of Bible.com, calling the URL a "goldmine" that is being underexploited, profit-wise--perhaps dragged down by that pesky business plan requiring it to be governed in accordance with Christian principles. Reuters via Yahoo News

He Manned Up: The pension benefits case for Alan Finch, 43, has been further tied up, in an Australian court. He says he's no longer employable because of a bad judgment in 1988, to wit, going under the knife to become a woman. That surgery was a bitch, but it was the 1996 do-over, back to "Alan," that he now says ruined his work ethic. Sydney Morning Herald

Fine Points of UAE Law: The chief justice of the highest court in United Arab Emirates dithered over the domestic-abuse case before reaching a statesmanlike compromise: True, in Sharia the husband has the "duty" to "discipline" his wife, even by force, but from now on, no beating that leaves bruises or other physical marks. TheNational.ae

Fine Points of Nebraska Law: Sheriff candidate Donnie Brennan, 57, is in lockup in Cass County, charged with voting where he doesn't legally live and for not disclosing his residence on his candidate filing form. (Actually, he is a legal Cass County resident, but his brand-new wife unfortunately had him listed as co-owner of her old residence in Iowa.) According to this report, Brennan's "crimes" could earn him, umm, 30 years in prison. KPTM-TV (Omaha)

Poor-Taste Art: In Tel Aviv, sculptor Noam Braslavsky debuted his life-size model of Israeli mega-hero Ariel Sharon addressing troops as a decorated army general conducting hard-line negotiations with Yassir Arafat lying comatose in his hospital bed, where he's been for nearly five years. Independent Television News (London)
