101 Uses for a Dead Llama
May 15th, 2010 by Babs

<div class=\"pavatar\">101 Uses for a Dead Llama</div>

Because such a list does not already exist, and because I can, I’m compiling a list of uses for a dead llama. Those in the know, know why, but all are encouraged to post suggestions here (the more creative, the better). :)

These are the ones I’ve collected, so far:

  1. End table.
  2. Seat on a Merry-go-Round.
  3. Speed bump (actually, I’d prefer them alive for that).
  4. Small boat anchor.
  5. Gather a couple dozen as weights for a hot air balloon.
  6. ETA: Strawberry planter.
  7. Carpeting for Canada.

International Alert Levels
Feb 11th, 2010 by Babs

<div class=\"pavatar\">International Alert Levels</div>

This was posted by Luke Pollit of the Titans on the KotW DB. It was too funny not to share.

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats and have raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from “Tiresome” to a “Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was during the great fire of 1666.

The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from “Run” to “Hide”. The only two higher levels in France are “Collaborate” and “Surrender..” The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France ‘s white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country’s military capability.

It’s not only the French who are on a heightened level of alert.  Italy has increased the alert level from “Shout loudly and excitedly” to “Elaborate Military Posturing.” Two more levels remain: “Ineffective Combat Operations” and “Change Sides.”

The Germans also increased their alert state from “Disdainful Arrogance” to “Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs.” They also have two higher levels: “Invade a Neighbor” and “Lose”.

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual, and the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels .

The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

Americans meanwhile and as usual are carrying out pre-emptive strikes, on all of their allies, just in case.

And in the southern hemisphere…. New Zealand has also raised its security levels – from “baaa” to “BAAAA!”.. Due to continuing defense cutbacks (the airforce being a squadron of spotty teenagers flying paper aeroplanes and the navy some toy boats in the Prime Minister’s bath), New Zealand only has one more level of escalation, which is “Shit, I hope Australia will come and rescue us”.

Australia , meanwhile, has raised its security level from “No worries” to “She’ll be all right, mate”. Three more escalation levels remain: “Crikey!”, “I think we’ll need to cancel the barbie this weekend” and “The barbie is cancelled”. So far no situation has ever warranted use of the final escalation level.

And last but not least…….

The Scots raised their threat level from “Pissed Off” to “Let’s get the Bastards” They don’t have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line in the British army for the last 300 years.

Super Bowl Commercials

<div class=\"pavatar\">Super Bowl Commercials</div>

Super Bowl commercials were pretty lame this year. However I did manage to find a few that I rather liked.

Volkswagen – I don’t know why they call it “Slug-a-Bug”. Everyone I know calls the game “Punch Buggy”.

Tim’s Doritos

eTrade

Bud Light Auto-Tune

Kia – Too cute!
