We have all heard of seasonal beers and ales.Many (most) of us have tried a few as well. In Iceland one of their breweries is producing an interesting seasonal brew. Each batch is flavored by one lightly salted, smoked whale testicle. Would anyone here try it if they could?

Comfyballs

The US patent office denied a trademark to a Norwegian company for the name Comfyballs for mens underwear. The name was deemed too vulgar to trademark. Maybe they could try Cradled Crotch or Non-Testy Testes.

Flashcube!



I remember when Flashcube and I protested the war at the Pentagon, dropped acid with Timothy Leary, and saw the Grateful Dead at Fillmore West. What an integral part of that decade he was!
