Desktop Goodies 8/30

Let me preface this by saying I have not had Internet for four days due to Hurricane Irene. My entire town and surrounding areas are still without it and we don’t know when it (or other media/communications) will be restored. I feel VERY lucky to have electricity right now. I drove to the closest place I could find to get online for a moment, and will try to do so again as soon as possible. In the meantime…

This made my day, because outside of saying it myself I’ve never seen the phrase “Zoologically incorrect”…and it’s a favorite.


Another unsettling Peek-a-Boo:

Think about this next time someone uses the fine colloquialism “He/she’ll have my head on a platter!”

This actually got printed:

You might be living in an insane, surrealist dictatorship if your “Dear Leader” is plastered on boxes of tongue scrapers…and walks by to inspect them for quality.


Go ahead Betty…one Business Casual Angel Donut won’t hurt…


The comic panel of my life (books rule!):

The female of this species probably takes a ages doing her makeup in the morning.

And speaking of other species…we will never be as awesome as this guy…

I’ll leave you with this, folks…

  1. Oh man! Great stuff! It started with “and/or terrifying” and just didn’t stop. Looking at the coiling left tentacle of that octopus is like staring into infinity. Thanks a lot!

      Haha…no problem! Still without internet (I’m at a bookstore right now) so my ability to find new gems is limited until my town is repaired a bit more from the storm damage).

    you know it makes sense…

  4. I love that Japanese peek-a-boo! I’d like to steal it for my blog. The monster with a hundred eyes is a favourite of mine. Hyakume (literally 100 eyes) protects shrines from thieves. One of its eyes will follow the thief around until he is captured.
