LAPD Delivers a Boot to Criminal's Head
Oh boy, LAPD. I have a feeling this may turn into a big story the next few days.

A suspect is in a high speed chase, daily event in L.A., and he is stopped. He makes a break for it through the backyards of suburbia for few seconds and gives up. Then, well, look at 37 seconds in and you'll see.



It's hard to watch. Now I don't know what the offense is other than running from the 5-0, and I couldn't care less if a crook is roughed up a bit, but that's ridiculous. After the kick to the head, it looks like a few baton smacks were tossed in as well.

Are we taking bets? How long until that copper is fired? How much will the settlement be?

Awkward Boners
wash_monu_ybnby.jpg
I'm not sure what's more suspect, that I've spent a good deal of time looking at this site, or that my girlfriend sent me the link.

We've all been there. (Well, just under half of us have been there.) You wake up in the morning and find you've got a kickstand. The air jet on a plane happens to be angled just right and suddenly you're poppin' a rod. Or, your local priest has you over for movie night. All are inopportune times to sport wood. Luckily, there's a site that documented this phenomena.

Video: Make the Girl Dance {nsfw}

Here's a video that makes great use of the little black bar and reverse type.

Those models...boy can they sing!

I kept waiting for a Diesel logo to come up though.

3 Chords & the Truth Episode #3
After the slight delay, we now unleash the third installment of 3 Chords & the Truth (in two parts) on the unsuspecting world. While promising we'd try to keep them short and sweet, we ended up having to separate the episode into two parts. The good news is I think we finally hit our stride with this one. Maybe it's because you can finally see the whites of our eyes. Maybe it's because Johnny lets me say more than five words. Whatever the case, we hope you enjoy it.





And a quick update: the tap-dancer we were trying to think of was "Tommy Tune".

The Tarantino Mixtape

My wife doesn't understand my obsessional lust for Tarantino movies. She also doesn't understand my similar insatiable lust for Uma Thurman, but as I've tried to point out to her (several times), the two are not unconnected, and to understand one, you must understand the other.

This mix video, from Eclectic Method just kicks ass.

Burlesque Cosplay

Leo sent us this link via Twitter this morning (you are following our awesome twitter feed, right?) and I just had to share. This must be just about geek nirvana. Not just hot strippers, but hot strippers IN COSPLAY COSTUMES.

If these girls ever have a "Superheroines of DC Comics" night, I'm there. Full (NSFW) slideshow can be seen here.

Digilegs are Awesome too!
digigrade-leg-ext.jpg

Muscle women are awesome. But they'd be even more so wearing these things.

For those who've ever wanted to walk like a centaur, or an AT-AT, or scare the crap out of your neighbors, these Digilegs will damn sure do the trick.

These giant metal braces are made of steel, strap on to your theighs and add 14 inches of height to your frame.

These are not ordinary stilts; they give a person the uncanny and graceful appearance of an animal. The movement of the legs is genuinely graceful and naturalistic.

If you are into Halloween these must be incorporated into your 2009 costume.
Man, I would love to walk down Broadway with this things on chasing tourists or that beef-cake Naked Cowboy.


Check out some other cool creations at Kim Graham Studios


Thanks Fancy Pipes.

Proposition Bets To Scam Your Buddies
Faro2-500.jpg"One of these days in your travels, a guy is going to show you a brand-new deck of cards on which the seal is not yet broken. Then this guy is going to offer to bet you that he can make the jack of spades jump out of this brand-new deck of cards and squirt cider in your ear. But, son, do not accept this bet, because as sure as you stand there, you're going to wind up with an ear full of cider."
Sky Masterson from Guys and Dolls

Recently a website that we are friends with reprinted a few bets that you can't lose from a book. I'm not having a go at them, it's just they weren't very good. A couple winners, but not really.

Having a misspent youth where if I wasn't on the basketball court or soccer pitch I was in a card room, I thought I'd give you reprobates a few winning bets to pick up a few drinks at your local watering hole. A few aces that I've had up my sleeve since I was a teen.

Those were the days that I had a fake ID with the handle William Henry Bonney. Or, Billy Bonney. Yep, Billy the Kid. Not a whole lot of history buffs at the Sports World Card Room in Federal Way Washington.

It should be said, that to really have the benefit of a good proposition bet, it should be done in a playful manner. The duped should feel that were a part of a good story and not mind buying you a beer or a hot dog at the ballpark. The guy that I scammed as a 16-year-old that I could chuck a pumpkin farther then he could - story and scam will follow - probably still hates me.

These gags will work if you can sell them

404 Error

Whoops! We're not sure if it was your fault or ours (probably yours, we're good that way) but you've encountered a FATAL ERROR!!! Or at least, a pretty grumpy one.

Specifically the Latvians who run our server are telling us in a weird accent "Smarty error: [in evaluated template line 6]: syntax error: unrecognized tag 'mtfeed' (Smarty_Compiler.class.php, line 580), Comrade!". Ain't life a bitch.

If you want to vent, email our slacker of a webmaster. Otherwise, we'd suggest going back, using search, or clicking around aimlessly on this page like a moron.

Have fun.
