some days I love the internets

Every once in a while, the internets cough up something utterly perfect:!

(Worksafe, save perhaps for the name itself.)

My own small contribution is here — bid now, at these prices we’re practically giving them away!

when silly ideas collide

It’s mildly amusing to me that the current blogoland/livejournal “post a candid photo of yourself” meme happened to coincide with suit day at work.

When all the wolves in woolly wigs
Have huffed, and puffed, and blew the bricks
The skulls of Brooklyn’s cruelest pigs
Will rain on Fulton’s newest kicks
As mulish swine of all surrounding counties sniff the gruesomeness
We pass around the pineapples and pull the pins in unison
I will gladly feed you to the breed who wants you sacrificed
No pagan or sacrilege, just bacon for scavengers
I will gladly seat you with the chickens, not the passengers
Hopefully the crack in his armor spreads to his avarice
Never that, Wilburs multiply quicker than triples
And hunt their truffles in fistfuls, but it was all bells and whistles
Bougie this and Bougie that…
War pig or pussy cat…
Glitzy to the pork ribs, had to gold-leaf the booby traps
Powder-pink, double-breasted, mess of mud and money
Waddle off the fire to make his stubborn tummy wroggle
And while I don’t really know the working details of your tribes
I know that that’s one ugly fucking tie.
