Concept stolen from The Oatmeal.
My friends Felicity Fenton and Mike Hensley had a pinata party a few weekends ago to celebrate their brand new marriage which was tons of fun. A lof of people made pinatas which included a mini guitar filled with candy rings, a creepy mime looking guy, a jellyfish, and the bride and groom naked.
For mine, I put together a cow pinata using mostly what I had around. Here’s how to make it:
You will need:
- Small box (I used a double cereal box from Costco)
- A few sheets of plain white paper and a black marker
- Cottage cheese, 48oz
- Plastic grocery bag
- Ketchup, medium bottle
- Barbeque sauce, medium bottle
- Toilet paper rolls, 4
- Empty ‘Chinese food’ box
- Spaghetti and meatballs, about two cups
- Latex glove
- Half a pencil
As you may already know, convicted digital pirate Jammie Thomas-Rasset has been ordered to pay $80,000 per illegally downloaded song for a total of 1.9 million dollars. This has become a landmark case because Jammie, a single mother from Minnesota, is not exactly a hardened criminal. See a news article here.
Clearly this case is setting the precedent for later digital piracy trials. But even clearer is the ridiculousness of this fine: 80,000 times higher than she would have paid for these songs on iTunes.
Now I’m definitely not arguing that digital piracy should be legal and I don’t wear Pirate Bay t-shirts. Stealing another’s intellectual property should be a crime because it violates the licensing of that property, it’s all very simple. However any fines for individuals who violate these licenses need to be more in line with …
Being insane is one thing, but being insane on YouTube is totally different. To be insane on YouTube means you have to be insane enough to stand apart from all the other crazy people on that website. It’s a real accomplishment.
And here are the top 5:
#5 – Rainbows in the Water Lady
One of my personal favorites, rainbows in the water lady combines insanity with stupidity in that perfectly redneck way. “And I just want to know what the HECK they are putting in our water. We all know these rainbows weren’t there 20 years ago!”
#4 – The Spirit of Truth
Spirit of Truth is a YouTube classic. And I can tell, he is NOT faking this one. He’s totally insane and loud, which means he definitely makes this list.
#3 – Poodle Aerobics Lady…
The days of great TV theme songs are long gone. For the past decade television producers have been taking pop songs by a normal bands and slapping them on shows. But in the 80′s and 90′s TV theme songs were composed by professionals who wrote theme music all day long. Using cheesy vocals and a ton of synth, these carefully crafted masterpieces are the forgotten gems of 80′s/90′s. Here’s my top ten:
1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES heroes in a half shell TURTLE POWER! They’re the world’s most fearsome fighting team….they’re heroes in a half-shell and they’re green. When the evil Shredder attacks, them turtle boys don’t cut him no slack!
Honestly, I could keep going.
2. Fraggle Rock

I recently got a new MacBook Pro. Of course, the first thing I did was use its webcam to photograph my old MacBook, something I could never do before!
The whole thing left me wondering, what would happen if I point the two webcams at each other and turn them on at the same time?
1. They blow up.
Rating: 2 stars
This one’s pretty straightforward. Basically the cameras can’t handle the concept of each other’s reality and respond by exploding. Like if you see your future self in Back to the Future.
2. Steve Jobs materializes.
Rating: 5 stars
In this scenario Steve Jobs materializes in the …
I’m in a weird demographic: I like to eat natural/organic food but I’m also incredibly lazy. I try to seek out fresh, local and natural foods, but ultimately I just want to eat Hot Pockets all day long.
So what am I to do? Trader Joe’s has always had a ton of natural/organic junk foods, and with the recent “green-washing” trend I’m seeing an ever-expanding variety of hippy products for lazy people like me.
So here’s a run-down of the five major junk food groups: Soda, Hot Pockets, Chocolate Milk, Frozen Waffles and of course Fast Food.
Pepsi Throwback – natural sugar not corn syrup
Oh man when I saw Pepsi Throwback I was in heaven. Pepsi has always been my life-blood, however when I started worrying about additives and especially corn syrup I started to feel guilty every time I had one. My only …
So I decided to make a page devoted to misspelling this word, because I’m certain there are others like me out there.
