Happy Birthday, Mr. Logan Chicken!

To steal shamelessly from The Beatles, it was 10 years ago today, Logan Chicken taught the band to play. Or at least started teaching me to be a's a look back at years zero through ten!

"Midtown Madness" comes to life

So one of the kids' favorite games on the ol' xBox is Microsoft's driving game Midtown Madness 3. And the hook in the game is that there's a joyride option where you can just drive around Washington DC or Paris and basically destroy stuff. Can't squish people - this isn't GTA or anything - but you can smash windows and bust up the car pretty darn well. And one of the places you can drive is down into the subway. And race along the tracks. And get hit by a subway car. All from the comfort of your own basement.

Clearly this German guy has played the game and thought he'd try it out for himself.

Finally, Tintin gets his props

And by "props" I naturally mean "movie deal". All just in time for the 100th birthday celebration of Georges Remi, better known as Herge.

Now...who should play the intrepid reporter?

Clearly it was too much for Jerry

On the same day that Lindsay Lohan tops Maxim's 'Hot 100' the Rev. Jerry Falwell dies at age 73.

I like to think it was the picture that goes with the Lindsay story that did it...

Yet another old guy getting a hole in one...

So this 90 year old guy in Florida got his first hole in one the other day, and this is what he has to say about it: "'I have very poor eyesight,' Tanner said. 'I seldom see where the ball goes.'"

Clearly my eyes need to get worse. My only excuse for not seeing where the ball goes is that it almost never goes where I aim it!

Clearly the AP understand's Bothell's fashion sense...

Why else would they include this sentence in their article about tonight's American Idol results show (bold italics are mine)?

"Lewis, 25 and the only man left in the competition, overcame Cowell's attack. The fashion police may not forgive his choice of a t-shirt with a painted-on bowtie Wednesday. Lewis is from Bothell, Wash."

Karma is on the war path

First we have this guy, who got drunk and thought it would be a good idea to tip over some tombstones. Well, Karma got it's own by crushing his legs with one of said tombstones, and now he's facing charges.

Then you've got these nuckleheads, who decided it would be fun to climb in to a giraffe's enclosure at a zoo in Latvia. In this case karma took the form of the pissed off giraffe, who proved that no, he's not a cute little horsey, by beating the crap out of the drunks.

You go, karma!

Another entry in the things I don't want to find when touring a house I'm thinking of buying: The owner dead in bed.

To quote the Realtor, "I've smelled death. I know what death smells like. I can't believe my sinuses were that bad."
