The winter television mid-season is here, and already the replacement shows are being canceled. This spin-off was canned before it even started, although the pilot was awesome -- little Mahmoud is the victim of bullying at his school imprisons everyone in his treehouse in revenge.
This is what happens when you type in "sledge hammer" at Wikimedia Commons. I swear this sculpture is called "Hammerschwinger," which is my new favorite name for a child. Hello, Gwynneth Paltrow? Yeah, I have a great name for your next son. Or daughter.
This is a geoduck clam, the official mascot of Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. Cousin Steve, who is a professor there, brought each of the girls one of these cuddly little guys. I'm guessing you can imagine the level of sophistication our conversation reached during Happy Hour, when these came out of Steve's suitcase.
Here is a real geoduck clam, in case you're ever actually tempted to eat one:
Some of my favorite creations have their origins in conversations. I mocked up this shirt after a good laugh with my sister last weekend. She made this quip not realizing how close to reality it is around Fooleryland.
Our dad takes a unique approach in life, usually, especially where his daughters are concerned. Dad didn't offer anyone livestock on my behalf, at least not that I know of. Either that or he needed to sweeten the deal with a donkey.
CUPERTINO, Calif. (FP) — Apple today rolled out its latest product in a bold attempt to prove that it can stay on the cutting edge of design and innovation.
The assembled audience at Apple Headquarters gave Apple's iCycle a thunderous ovation for about ten seconds before mass texting ensued.
Both the MacBike and the MacBike Pro have a built-in 16GB or 32GB iPod Touch, and are fully rechargeable by human pedal power. The MacBike Pro also has Siri personal assistant installed, for directions, for remembering which Starbucks your exes frequent, and much more.
New Apple CEO Tim Cook seemed excited by his company's latest foray into uncharted territory as the iCycles were unveiled at Apple Headquarters Friday morning. The iCycle will roll off assembly lines for sale on November 11th.
According to industry insiders, Apple's rival Microsoft is also poised to introduce a line of cycles sometime early next year, although specifics haven't been leaked. Microsoft is being characteristically silent on the subject.
Rumors of MacBike Air have already begun to circulate in Silicon Valley, although the Federal Aviation Administration has firmly denied that air space will be authorized for iCycle commuter traffic.

I had a rare lunch with my old friend Lance a few weeks ago, and took a couple of photos. As soon as I had clicked the first shot, taking care not to make it look like that large fountain was sprouting from his head, I realized that a pointy tree* behind Lance was probably sticking up above his head like a horn. So I quickly shifted in my seat and snapped another shot, sure that I had avoided the single horn look.
Um, new problem.
Sorry Lance. Thanks for having lunch with me. Next time I'll PhotoShop you, but for now? It's comedy.
