  • Awesome Pontiac ad

    This ad is awesome. (Shame it’s for the G8.) (Via everyone and their dog, it seems. I think I saw it first on BoingBoing Gadgets.)

  • Righting the failboat

    You’ve probably seen this image macro before: The Cougar Ace suffered a ballast tank pump failure when she was dumping her origin ballast water and filling — or, I suppose, trying to fill — her ballast tanks with local water, as required before entering American waters to prevent the accidental importation of invasive marine species.

    Americans Against Traffic Calming really writes its own jokes. (I found that while looking for general traffic-calming stuff after reading about this living room in the road in England.)

  • hippo honk!

    The other day at Starbucks I ordered a to-go grande half-caf soy no-whip pumpkin spice latte. YOW! Am I GENTRIFIED yet? That said, I really like their pumpkin spice lattes. Like everything else “pumpkin-flavoured” they taste of cinnamon and allspice, not pumpkin, but that’s fine because it tastes like pumpkin pie. Candice likes their maple […]
