Here are some pics of my old, decrepit cat, Shamu (named by me at age 7 for the killer whale). She's 21 this year, and sleeps 20-odd hours a day. She occasionally rousts herself to eat. This past weekend, we had Christmas with my mom, uncle, step dad and assorted step-siblings. She promptly found a nice gift box and went to sleep in it ('cause everybody loves pictures of old, cranky cats):

So while at the parents' house this weekend, we actually watched SNL for the first time in years. The following musical number, from Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake, marks the first time I've laughed out loud at the show in half a decade. I don't know what it is. The pitch-perfect Color Me Badd vibe to the whole thing? The earnestness of the girls playing their dates? The deadpan delivery of the step-by-step instructions? maybe it's just the infectiously catchy tune. I dare you to watch it a couple of times and not be humming it to yourself in the aisle at Target.
If NBC released an unedited version on iTunes for $.99 a pop, they'd make millions.

Toys that maim. When I was a kid, I would have wanted them all. Hell, some of them still look cool. I really want a "Johnny Reb" cannon.

Via notthatguy, comes Benny Hinn in "Let teh Bodies Hit the Floor!" This is high comedy.

The highlight comes about 1/3 of the way through, when it looks like he pimp slaps some old lady right to the floor.

Iran just finished hosting a bizarro-world academic "history" conference. Subject: the Holocaust. Or, to be more precise, the lack of one. I knew about this some time ago, but I didn't know the US "delegation" was being led by the old Imperial Wizard himself. Can we get the Iranians to keep him? I'm sure they'd have lots to talk about.

That's a lot of different kinds of crazy packed into one room.

When guns knives are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns knives.

Our relatives across the pond, in their hell-for-leather charge back into serfdom, have surrendered their guns  to the lords of the manor long ago. Now the peasants can't even have their crude farm implements.

Next up...

I've always wondered how often reporters, writers and others in media bother to check facts given to them by often hardly-disinterested parties. Yet more evidence that the answer is "hardly ever."

To be fair, I can see how the initial error here could have been an honest mistake. The problem seems to be that once it was made, a long line of people never bothered to "show their work" because the data just sounded so good (or too bad, depending on how you look at it).

Man. I think this is the new Star Wars Christmas Special. A live-action Superfriends show. And it's a comedy.

And yes, Solomon Grundy is there.

Be sure to read all the way to the end. The second (and last) episode was in the format of a fucking roast. Keep an eye out for "Ghetto Man - the first black super hero" and Mordru the Sorcerer on a jet-ski.

I have GOT to see this.
