Halloween Stories For Children includes “The Hairy Toe” but I never heard of it. It’s similar to “Der Vinder Viper” without the punchline “I’m Der Vinder Viper man, come to vipe der vinders.”

The first link above says there’s a pun in the story title, but I didn’t catch it. All I could come up with was “Jarritos.” It means “little jugs” in Spanish, and its anglicized pronunciation is “hairy toes.” It’s one of the better soft drinks to come out of Mexico, and Jarritos Tamarindo is the best.

The greatest voice in cartoons: Mel Blanc described the business to David Letterman in 1981. At 03:28, Blanc described how Porky Pig’s voice came to be – he went to a pig farm and listened.

A kilowatt hour is the distance a kilowatt can travel in 60 minutes and it’s faster than a cheetah. (Okay, it’s not, but it is because I just said it is.)

From the Hoodathunkit Dept.: 47 year-old Filipino man was rescued after living three years in a coconut palm. His body was covered in blisters and insect bites, suffers from muscle atrophy and his spine became deformed after so much time spent crouching in the tree. He exhibits symptoms of psychosis, including delusions, hallucinations and paranoia.

A Brief Illustrated History of the Navy Goat.

You’ve probably uttered the phrase, “it begs the question,” and you’ve probably used it incorrectly. It doesn’t mean what you think it means.

International CyberWar attacks in real time – and it’s not a time lapse. The majority of attacks originate from China, and the majority of the targets are in the US. [Source of screencapped image at top.]
