Emergency and calories

The following story is about a woman who called 911 because McDonald's ran out of McNuggets. We all agree it's stupid, outrageous, etc. and there isn't too much that can be added to the story. The reason I am linking is that the writer felt it was important to include some McNuggets stats to the piece:
"McNuggets, introduced to the McDonald’s national menu in 1983, are sold in more than 100 countries and often are dunked in barbecue or hot mustard sauce. Goodman’s 10-piece selection has 460 calories and 29 grams of fat."
This is what we call good writing since knowing how to eat McNuggets is not common knowledge and the calorie count is extremely relevant to the story.

Belly button lint

New business idea: belly button protector. Just imagine Billy Mays screaming on TV, "For a low, LOW price of $11.99, YOU can have not one, not TWO, but THREE [beat] THREE!! belly button protectors to keep you lint AND dirt free."

Glow in the dark

I am typically not a fan of these types of videos. Safe for work.

Survey results + new link

Results from the survey:
1. Keep the links
2. Update them every day
3. Mention if the link is safe for work
4. One of you thinks I am sexy

One person asked that the links be added to some sort of a blog so they can be traced back and followed later. That makes sense so this is the new format. We'll do another survey later to see if people like it.

New link (cartoon that mentions threesomes - should be safe work):
To preempt the question, the answer is "no."
