monday monday monday!

What a Monday Monday this is! (in Chicago) Sorry no posts over the weekend. Between my busy activities of doing laundry and folding laundry, its hard to find the time to noodle around on the internet.

But without further ado, today’s stuff:








  • A quiz to sharpen you minds early in the week. (please leave your answer as a comment)

    A bat and a ball cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs $1.00 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?

    A. $1.10
    B. $0.10
    C. $0.05
    D. $1.00
    E. $0.15

    (the answer is not as obvious as you think…)

  • Storella once made his friends promise to play “Another One Bites the Dust” at his funeral. Whether or not he still holds us to that, or if he has a contract in writing, I don’t know.

    Anyway, here’s a link to the AV Club’s “Tempting but Inappropriate Funeral Songs.” (Storella, please note #24)

  • For those of you who like Nine Inch Nails, their new 36 track instrumental album is ready to download from their site for $5.
  • Dr. Steve Brule…for your health!
  • Vodpod videos no longer available.



  • Lame Political Joke to Tell Your Lame Liberal Friends (the Kind Who You Wish Weren’t on Your Side if You Are Also Liberal. They Probably Participated in a Protest for Some Sort of International Miscarriage of Justice in College):
  • It turns out John McCain might not be able to run for president because he was born outside America.

    I think this is unfair! When John McCain was born, America hadn’t even been discovered yet.

  • History’s Greatest Replies. Among them:

    Groucho Marx

    From 1950 to 1961, Groucho Marx’s “You Bet Your Life” was one of the most popular shows on television. In addition to being a perfect vehicle for Groucho’s quick wit, the show featured several gimmicks that became part of television history (a little bird that appeared whenever a contestant uttered “the magic word” and the question, “Who is buried in Grant’s tomb?”). Shot before a live audience, Groucho would typically interview contestants for a short while before moving onto the quiz portion of the show. However, so many of Groucho’s quips were off-color or risqué that it generally took to up to two hours to produce enough suitable material for a half-hour show. One night, a contestant revealed that he was the father of ten children. When Groucho asked “Why so many children?” the man answered, “Well, Groucho, I love my wife.” Marx hesitated for a moment, panned to the audience in his inimitable manner, and then delivered one of the most famous lines never to be actually broadcast on the show:

    “I love my cigar, but I take it out of my mouth once in a while.”

    1. My dad wants us to play “Domino” by Van Morrison at his funeral. My pick would be Wham’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.”
