Not to get all muppetgum, but there’s already a Muppet with AIDS on the South African version of Sesame Street:
I share a great aunt with Zooey, and she was the one who broke the news to me of Zooey’s engagement to “some musician. Who’s in a band called Cute-something? Something Cute? I don’t know, your cousin had heard of it?”
I am torn. I want to see this movie, but I also thought we were throwing it in jail … http://videogum.com/archives/trailer/fantastic_mr_fox_continues_to_093071.html
A baby girl? The Internets (which are never wrong) say he has seven to 10 children. Hope they’ve budgeted for a math tutor.
The downvotes? Really? Bert has a history of terror, is all I’m saying.
Saw that show, too, during my honeymoon (Does it make it better or worse that we got super-discounted tickets after we sat through a three-hour time share presentation? Oh, right. Worse.) I thought he was AWFUL (when I close my eyes, I can still see the Michael Jackson impersonation he did where the super-strong fan blew his shirt open, exposing his steroid-hardened abs). My husband, however, Lots Of Love’d several times during the performance; I began contemplating an annulment.
Gabe, are you trying to say cats *don’t* have attitudes? Because if so, hoo boy, do I have the comic strip for you.
I don’t know which I love you more for, your avatar or your Target Women reference.
Hmmm … that was supposed to be in reply to HowManyWhales. Dunno how it ended up down here.
Ha–I was just about to post a link to Attack Attack, too. I don’t know which version of the video you posted because my workplace blocks MySpace (sigh), but the one with the farmhouse and the blonde who has her hands over her ears and looks pained for a goodly portion of the video is far superior to the remake (although, holy shit, the glo sticks at the end of the new version are hilarious). Attack Attack has even spawned its own genre: crabcore.

These guys are from my hometown, Columbus, Ohio (well, sort of: they’re from the ‘burbs), and apparently dropped out of high school to do this band thing full-time.
I would write more, but the weeping is making it difficult to type.
I think your comment would carry more weight if it didn’t have a grammatical error itself. And also if the “errors” weren’t intentional writing flourishes.
U R 2 Good 2 Be 4Gotten. (Sorry, that was the standard yearbook inscription at my school, along with “I never really knew you that well, but you seemed really nice” [Am I the only one who got that one?].) Anyway, your daily doses of humor (and of super-cute animals) will be sorely missed ’round these parts, but I’m really excited to see what you do next–I have a feeling it will be unbelievably awesome.
My friends bought a TomTom GPS so that they could have Mr. T provide them with directions wherever they went. Looks like you can also get Burt Reynolds, Dennis Hopper, Gary Busey … There’s a list of voices here: http://www.navtones.com/magento/products/tomtom
I live in the land of Ohio State University, and have had the unfortunate experience of seeing a trailer hitch covered by a mini Brutus Buckeye with those Truck Nutz hanging underneath so as to appear that the testicles belonged to him.
