First, a PSA/sales pitch from one of my favorite blog crushes, Dr. Grosz: The good doctor is selling his car (that's Kathleen to you). It's not just any car. It's a classic, 1955 Ford Country Sedan which, if it could talk, would have amazing tales to tell, including being in A Beautiful Mind. Check out the auction here.
- Bonsai Kittens? Fake. Spinal Tap? Fake. Rowdy Rider Piper's feud with Hulk Hogan? Totally real, man.
- Did you know that Pinocchio is Italian for pine head? Now you do. Knowledge is power, kids. [via Seki]
- On this date in 1898, the U.S. declared war on Spain. Which is interesting in that today I have declared war on the humorless. I have also declared tomorrow, April 26, to be National Take the Stick Out Of Your Ass Day.
- Remember Flesh for Lulu? I really liked that "I Go Crazy" song.
If you have any interesting links to share, leave them in the comments. I said interesting.
So, Sister Christian just came on the radio and my son yells out, "YEA, this song ROCKS!" It's the small things that make me so damn proud.
