Dear Amazon,

Why are you trying to sell me a copy of Parallels Desktop that looks like a cellphone battery?

Here's the direct link if anyone wants to see it happen for themselves:

This was spotted on the Anthrocon forums this morning:

Spam Screencap

No ma'am, you will NOT be putting anything in me anytime soon.

Oh, and what WAS your username again? *clickety-click*

When real life imitates The Onion:

Pro-Life Group up in Arms over Krispy Kreme's Abortion Doughnuts

Krispy Kreme, being the genial purveyor of glazed goodness that it is, decided to get in on the Obama inauguration craze and is offering one free doughnut to every costumer on January 20, Inauguration day, and released this seemingly innocuous press release:

"Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE: KKD) is honoring American's sense of pride and freedom of choice on Inauguration Day, by offering a free doughnut of choice to every customer on this historic day, Jan. 20. By doing so, participating Krispy Kreme stores nationwide are making an oath to tasty goodies -- just another reminder of how oh-so-sweet 'free' can be."
Well, The American Life League noticed the liberal use of the word choice and decided to blast the chain bakery for producing abortion doughnuts.

"The unfortunate reality of a post-Roe v. Wade America is that 'choice' is synonymous with abortion access, and celebration of 'freedom of choice' is a tacit endorsement of abortion rights on demand," the group's president, Judie Brown said in a statement.

There's more to this story, and the entire press release from these American Life League nutjobs can be read over here.

And it gets better, these whackos have a website, too. Complete with a counter of "deaths since Roe v. Wade". Wow.

And while I'm venting about anti-rights groups, I found something worth sharing: "The Only Moral Abortion is My Abortion". Yep, it's an article about when anti-abortion people get abortions themselves. Funny, isn't it?

Remember the post I made last month about the grandmother who was arrested for videotaping an altercation on board a JetBlue flight?

Well, JetBlue just couldn't leave the situation be. Instead of admitting they screwed up, or at least remained silent, they instead chose to send Marilyn Praver a nasty letter in which they accused her of of being "argumentative, condescending and belligerent", and chastised her for refusing to obey the instructions of crew members.

Guess what just got posted on YouTube. Yep, it's the altercation in question:

Nothing too shocking, just a couple of passengers arguing because one passenger couldn't (or wouldn't) control her "little angel". And that's what JetBlue was so upset about?

The blog Photography is Not a Crime has much more detailed writeup on the situation, including a copy of Marylin Praver's complaint letter to JetBlue.

And remember, taking pictures inside a plane isn't allowed, unless you're a JetBlue flight attendant, wiping another attendant with a tampon:

I think Sarah Palin should work for JetBlue. She'd fit right in.

Thanks for pointing this out, [ profile] lockemaison:

That's pretty much a day's worth of calories right there, in that one shake.

I'm amazed places can get away selling this stuff. I know that people have to take responsibility for what they eat, but I think there has to be some accountability for the companies that sell this crap, too. I'd be surprised if 1 in 100 customers who consume that shake have any idea how bad it is.

So apparently, the owner of Furry Art Pile up and decided to close the site last night.

No warning. No notice. Just gone. *poof*

I feel badly for the artists who lost any artwork or commission info from the site.

Guess I'll be visiting ArtSpots a lot more in the future.

For the morbidly curious, that pic was used on a paper tray liner at a Burger King at an airport. The original blog post about it can be found over here.

And yes, *what* is Burger King thinking? Pickles do NOT perform body cavity searches on onions!

From a comment left on my previous entry.

It's only fair I give equal time to both candidates, right? :-)

Captions for the whole thing or just for individual stills are acceptable. Personally, I think the upper right picture looks like she had some sort of misfiring of her bowels or something.

And no, I'm not voting for her. I don't want to see the above for the next 4 years.

[ profile] alexismckee just showed me this video, which shows "how true Danes are", according to him.

The below video is a speech made by Oklahoma State Representative Sally Kern at a gathering in her district. There were 50 people present when she went on this anti-gay rant.

She did not know she was being recorded.

This is rather frightening that there are still people in this country--elected officials at that, who think these things, and rail against homosexuality.

Of course, after looking at this slightly creepy picture of her, I think I am going to question what her realities consist of:

Sweet Jesus.

If the world were a perfect set of teeth, Sally Kern would be plaque.

An interesting happened with FedEx today. My order from Adagio Teas (who totally rock, BTW) arrived, but the box appeared to suffer a bit of a mishap enroute to the office:

Damaged Package Damaged Package

And by "mishap", I really mean "got completely gutted". To FedEx's credit, they did tape the box back up, and did not lose any of my order. They get cool points for that.

Then I opened the box, and this is what I saw:

Why is there a CD with my tea...?

Huh? I didn't order a CD...

WTF?  I didn't order this CD!

Who the hell is Michael Manson? And what is he doing in my tea??

I emailed these pictures to the folks at Adagio, and they were as confused as I was. They didn't put the CD in my order, and have no idea where it came from. The best guess we have is that my box wasn't the only one that got damaged, another box had its contents ripped out, and that CD was put into my box by mistake.

I guess that somewhere, someone is missing their Michael Manson CD...

Taken at a recent furmeet:

Pool's Closed

Yep, it's a real sign in a real store. Apparently these people have never heard of 4chan.

I wonder if they could have possibly used the word "closed" any more times...

That description of downtown Philly isn't too far off, either...
