Puddles’ Pity Party website is everything you’d expect, and more.

12 protips on How to Email.

Naked Tickle Me Elmo  creeps me out.

The SJW was a great satirical post for April Fools Day by Maddox. I’d forgotten about his acerbic wit until I had a brief discussion about vegetarianism recently, and remembered his classic comment:
“For every animal you don’t eat, I’m going to eat three.”

There’s a new victim in town. Check your right-handed privilege, folks.

In 1674 London, women petitioned to ban coffee [via]. Why? Here’s a hint:

THe Coffee-house being in truth, only a Pimp to the Tavern, a relishing foop prearative to a fresh debauch: For when people have swill’d themselves with a morning draught of more Ale than a Brewer’s horse can carry, hither they come for a pennyworth of Settle-brain, where they are sure to meet enow lazy pragmatical Companions, that resort here to prattle of NEws, that they neither understand, nor are concerned in; and after an hours impertinent CHat, begin to consider a Bottle of Claret would do excellent well before Dinner; whereupon to the Bush they all march together, till every one of them is as Drunk as a Drum, and then back again to the Coffee-house to drink themselves suber…

Note that at the time of that petition, the midday meal was called “dinner.” Supper came later in the day as a snack before bedtime at sundown.

Heh. I just rediscovered Missing Missy. Classic trolling at it’s best.

Devo – The Early Years. VHS video is probably from 1977, possibly somewhere near The Spud Fryer.

Michael Crichton critiqued Kurt Vonnegut in 1969, and it’s an interesting read [h/t Octopus].

Stuff like this makes me wanna puke.

Apparently it was an exercise required of applicants to a government job. The woman who posted this on Twitter said she was asked to leave after she voiced her disgust about the “I’ll Bet You’re A Bigot” test. (Note that they couldn’t even spell “Nostradamus” correctly.) I wouldn’t hire ANYONE who chose to participate in such an idiotic exercise, and walking out is the appropriate response, IMO.

And that’s exactly what she did.

Reminds me of this ill-conceived mind experiment, and the work of photographer Jill Greenberg (whose claim to fame is making toddlers cry as a political statement).

Puke.

Block Parties Here Are Incredible.

“Hey, Bob! What’s going on this weekend?”
“The Stones are coming back again.”
“Aw, crap.”

“The [Nankai] Hawks were sold and moved to Fukuoka City in 1988 or 1989. Since the stadium was abandoned, the City of Osaka, working with a trade group, turned it into a giant outdoor home show with rows of various model homes from several construction companies.

“If I remember correctly, the houses were a failure, as most Japanese in the greater Osaka area were not interested in western style housing and the quality of construction was not up to their expectations. I think the stadium was finally demolished in the late ’90s.”
