What is it with ad departments screwing up the Super Bowl this year? They must have gotten their advice from the Patriots receiving corps. Come on people! First the ice hockey and now this. Hat tip to http://www.awesome-robo.com for pointing this one out.

I’m Feeling Uncreative
Maybe it’s because I just finished the book. Maybe it’s the toll that editing takes. Whatever it is, I am feeling uncreative and unproductive. Last night I watched the movie Splice. I really think I should write a review, but frankly, I don’t feel like it. Pathetic huh? On Splice, it was a weird movie that wasn’t really that good and then went completely off the rails at the end. COMPLETELY. I would say the last 30 minutes is some combination of completely unbelievable and completely random, as if the writers of the movie just had no idea how to wrap it all up at the end. So yeah, I got nothing. Here’s a dose of internet meme to make up for it.
Predictions of What 2011 Would Be Like From a 1911 Newspaper
This is great. It’s interesting to see what they got right and to speculate on why some of their predictions went wrong. For instance, they predict that the US will have a population of 500 million. Without birth control, they are probably right. Read more here.

Happy Friday the 13th!
If you were ever going to make that impulse novel buy, what a better day than this? Think about it this way, the Kindle version of That Which Should Not Be is about the same price as a Big Mac meal, and it won’t make you fat. Check it out here.

Weird News of the Day: Scotch in a Can
I really don’t know what to say about this. Just reading the title may kill the Passionate Foodie. But here it is, scotch in a can. Wow.
“Each can of Scottish Spirits will contain 12 ounces — about eight shots — of 80-proof “single grain scotch whisky,” distilled and matured for three years in oak casks in Scotland, according to Rubenfeld. The company hopes to have its cans on shelves in major American markets by Feb. 1, retailing for $5 apiece.”
The Secret to Why I Can’t Spell — English is Stoopid
I always think people who are proud of their grammatical and spelling abilities are funny. English is the most gosh-darn ridiculous language since people first scratched lines on clay shards somewhere in Mesopotamia. If you are somehow an expert in it, I’m not sure that is necessarily something you want to brag about. If you doubt me, read this article.

Woman Hit By Flying Body Parts of Man Killed By Train Sues For Damages
You know, maybe it’s cause I’m a lawyer, but this makes perfect sense to me. You run out in front of a train, you have to be responsible for the people who are injured by your severed head. Am I right or am I right?
Dreaming of Princess Leia and the Metal Bikini? Now You Can Live the Dream!
I don’t know what to think about this, other than I am surprised nobody came up with it earlier. Apparently, a Sci-Fi themed brothel is coming to Nevada. . . . . . . Yeah . . .
Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Clause! (According to the Bloggess at Least)
Jenny Lawson, Bloggess extraordinare and provider of all the funny things on my website (unbeknownest to her. Stealing is grand!) has proven the existence of Santa Clause with the kind of logical accuracy that makes mathematicians die of brain infarction (a disease peculiar to that species). I mean, can you argue with this?
“I’ve never seen a zombie, but I still keep a rifle in my office in case I see one. I think we should all give Santa the same benefit of the doubt that we give zombies. In that we should believe in his existence, that is. Not that we should shoot him in the face.”
I thought not. Read the rest here.
Random Funny Post of the Day — Commercial Fails
“So I’m not sure what these McDonald’s commercials are trying to do. They’re pointing out how smart you, the customer, will be for saving money on the dollar menu, yet they’re comparing this level of intelligence to spending 10 seconds of awkward silence figuring out a pet name for your girlfriend and finally coming up with ‘sweet-tea’ and then ‘sweetie’.”
Remember, I am trying to be funny by stealing funny. Anyway, click me.
