LOL FERRET: EPISODE 1

lol-ferret-snake

Although Bosley the Ferret passed away years ago, he still produces smiles. First posted on 8 November 2007, Bosley has staying power with a score of 1/2/2 and over 44,580 hits, despite the fact that I didn’t know there was an established protocol for posting “Lol” memes at the time (hence the font and non-meme-correct “LolSpeak”).

Okay, this is brilliant.

Great Barrington – Business is Greater than Great! 

It appears that someone/some people have created a YouTube channel about the town of Great Barrington, MA that has a video for EVERY business in the town.

The song is the same in all of the videos and each video is just filled with some exteriors of the business.

I am obsessed.

this is real, people. and it’s realer than real.

It’s true. Business in Great Barrington is greater than great, and here’s proof:

Watch the entire play list. I know where I want to go on my next vacation, and I’ll check each establishment off my bucket list one at a time. Wait for the Great Barrington Cemetery
It’s greater than great.

Campus Survival Cookbook Page 25

That image is from Page 25 of The Best Cookbook Ever, aka “The Campus Survival Cookbook” by Jacqueline Wood & Joelyn Scott Gilchrist (William Morrow & Company, 1973). While not condescending in the least, it assumes you know little about cooking, own few cooking utensils, don’t know how to shop for groceries or what staples you need. It also assumes that you’re on a tight budget and even provides shopping lists. It’s out of print, but there are used copies out there, and no, you can’t have mine.
[Beware of the freebee .pdf’s – MalwareBytes threw a hissy when I tried to download a copy.]

The Seven Tone Fart Symphony is awesome.

Flying houses [via].

2.2 lb burrito swallowed in 1 minute 44 seconds.

Ancient Islamic depictions of Mohammed.  Don’t worry. You won’t be beheaded for looking at history, at least in the one remaining country with Freedom of Speech. Here’s the full archive. Download them all before The Powers That Be decide that they are hate speech, and God Forbid it ever comes to that. [BTW, Zombie is brilliant.]

This is disturbing.

LMAO. AGW is a fraud, a transparent hoax that has nothing to do with science and everything to do with confiscation of your income. Check this out.

George Carlin on Global Warming [warning – strong language].

Can you say “indoctrination?” Here’s the Reverend Jesse Jackson on Sesame Street. Really.

“Remember when you stuck my nose in it when I was a puppy? I do.”

I saw an insect yesterday I’d never seen before. It was about 2-inches long, the size of a large grasshopper. It had pumpkin-colored wings that laid flat on its back, and a shiny black body with a sky-blue band on the top of its abdomen. It crawled into a patch of dead rye grass that we’re growing on the side of the garage, so I pulled the grass out to get a better look and disturbed it. It flew off, with orange dragonfly wings and black dangling legs, obviously a wasp. It was a Tarantula Hawk, and I’ll never mess with one again. Here’s one description of what it’s like to be stung.

But then there are bullet ants.

So you’re in the Outback on walkabout and you need some rabbits? Catch some snakes first.

This may be the most mildly disturbing collection of miscellaneous links we’ve posted, but to make up for it, here’s a link to our Hot Links Archive.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
