I know its late in the day, and most of you have probably already had Thanksgiving with your family, but I couldn’t help but post this here. Man I love the Onion. Check out this hilarious Thanksgiving slide show of theirs!
Check out all their Thanksgiving “news stories” and laugh out loud!
Lets go back, back to a time when a broad only had to worry about good coffee, white shirts and a good shape. Enjoy!
The Daily Show is Hilarious and this new ( what I hope actually will be a recurring segment ) really made me laugh. Neil deGrasse Tyson is scientist and apparently a comedian as well.
About the laziest thing you can do if you want to promote your business on the internet is to throw a poorly-thought-out hashtag out in an ad and ask people to tweet it. Not only are people extremely unlikely to be that into the idea of staying at a Holiday Inn Express to tweet about it, it just shows kind of a fundamental unawareness of how social media works.
Yesterday, I saw a prime example of this: a Hulu commercial from Applebees for their “spirited cuisine” menu, depicting a chef (apparently actually Christian Delpech, a bartending competition winner), doing all kinds of tricks, asking people to suggest another trick he should do by tweeting with the hashtag “#spiritedChef.”
To me, there was only one natural response.

Little did I know that I would be the only person on Earth that responded to the campaign:
They were pretty good sports about it, but I’m a little scared to accept the gift card they offered me. I may be the first person killed by Applebees who wasn’t killed by their food.
Cats might be the belles of the Internet photography ball, but I’m a dog person and I’ll be damned if cats get all the recognition. Photographer Carli Davidson’s series Shake was a giant leap in the right direction, and now another canine advocate and photographer has stepped forward with his own series of portraits.
His name is Ty Foster, and where Davidson’s series captured dogs mid shake, Foster’s series Lick captures them in the middle of licking their own face.
As a photographer, Foster has always focused on dogs. His own Rhodesian Ridgeback Tech is so used to being photographed that, even when out shooting for fun, he’ll count shutter clicks and bound over to Foster expecting a treat after 5 or 6.
The Lick series came about by mistake. One year ago, while looking through shots he had taken for a client, he kept stumbling across “throw away” pics of dogs licking in the studio. He couldn’t stop laughing, and thus an idea was born.
SAUK RAPIDS, Minn. (WCCO) - It was Edward Snowden’s revelations of domestic spying by the National Security Agency that hatched the idea — graphic artist Dan McCall would take the NSA’s emblem and create a new look with a funny twist.
“When I got finished I thought, this is pretty good - I thought it was fun,” McCall said.
Soon, he was having T-shirts emblazoned with the NSA logo accompanied by the slogan, “peeping while you’re sleeping.” Under the parodied emblem was the statement, “the only part of government that actually listens.”
What McCall meant as pure parody, apparently wasn’t very funny to bureaucrats at the NSA.
