Stop Having Boring Tuna, Stop Having a Boring Life

So, normally (okay, semi-normally...)


(seldom normally....)

(shut up)

I would present my fascinating and insightful spin on world issues in 'Torn from the Headlines' Tuesday.

Today, however - although there are many, many headlines to draw from:

"Housing 'severely unaffordable' " [quotes family in accompanying photo, uncomfortably sharing their living room with their 60" flat-screen tv]

"Carney wary of Obama plan" [well, d'uh. What carnival worker wouldn't be leery of a proposal to bar financial institutions from engaging in proprietary trading. That could affect the local Money Tree, yo]

"Apple: It's all about the tablet" [Yeah, that's what Moses and Bayer thought, too. You're not as revolutionary as you think, Steve Jobs...]

... I will instead take the low road (virtually sub-terranean) and just cut and paste a little sumpin' sumpin' brought to my attention just this very minute (thank you, dear Audrey!)

While it does not have serious global implications, I am fairly certain that those of us who have ever been awake watching tv at 3:00 am will appreciate the timeliness and artistry.

Without further ado, something to either:

a) brighten up your Tuesday
b) give you epileptic fits

Happy Tuesday, one and all!

Excuse me, I need to get a fresh pair of knickers.

I need me some 'slap-chop'... hilarious!

Also, love the new format- retro and chic all at once.

OH MY GOD. This is FANTASTIC! :) I have seen the Slap Chop commercial probably a thousand times and it still makes me guffaw, but this is awesome. There have never been so many catchphrases in one commercial ever. This is so wrong, it can only be right.

Countess MPM: Like the Veg Assassin says below, so wrong - yet so right.

Countess FF: Why? Did you get some 'instant breakfast' on them?

Countess Ti: Glad you enjoyed it!
BTW, just read your latest piece on IndieInk. Wow. Just wow. The fact you do all you do - so freakin' inspirational. You are a superhero!!!

Guv: I know, right?? Even though, like you, I've see the commercial about eleventy-seven times, I STILL watched the video about 2 or 3 times. All dude needs is some Veggie Hos & a bottle of Dom, and he be a pimpin'
true rapper, yo.

I love the page redesign, though Zeus looks a bit upset at your expression.

Count Cormac: Yeah, I'm not too crazy about this picture, either. Once I get it all figured out, I think that our Mr. Z will, like the cheese, stand alone as the posterboy for 'Irksome'.

You are very welcome!

I watch that thing at least once a day because my 4 year old is so enamored of it.

I still won't buy one though...nope, not after the most recent super glue incident. I'm just better off not playing with gadgets of any kind. Seriously.
