Message from the Gibbons

I am a baby white cheeked gibbon and I can see into your soul. Looks pretty good in there, bro!

Even my mom thinks so. She did say to mention she thinks you should watch that smart mouth, though. Before it gets you in trouble.

Also, she doesn’t want to have to stop this car.

This comic should be tattooed on the face of every person in the country so that every other person will  see it every day and I will never have to hear some idiot ranting that free speech is being violated just because said free speech has consequences.

I’ll go first.

Comic from xkcd, of course.

Alt text from comic: I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.

This “finale” is a stab in the heart from something I love. Something that can’t actually stab because it’s a teevee show.

It’s just. Chris O’Dowd got famous and now he’s too well groomed to pull off the role of unwashed loser. He seems slick, Hollywood mean instead of adorably, hilariously mean. And Katherine Parkinson’s schtick as self-absorbed know-nothing isn’t working either.

Obviously, Richard Ayoade can work magic with anything, especially when given the heads-up that women’s slacks are gonna help him in life. And wonderful weirdo Matt Berry does a workmanlike-and-sometimes-amusing job of shouting weird stuff. Like he does.

Verdict: Pretty disappointing, but go ahead and watch it if you’ve watched the rest of the series. A few bright spots.

Pugs on a Plane

I know that this is a cool photo of a  pug on a plane, and that’s all I should be thinking about.

But I’m just wondering why it looks like the guy in front of the pug is facing backward. How is that even possible? Is he sitting in the pocket usually reserved for the eighth wonder of the world AKA Skymall? Or is this some kinda weird old timey plane such as would exist within the confines of Mad Men? What is happening here?

Wes Anderson Movies from Best to Worst

foxy

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Rushmore

Fantastic Mr. Fox

The Royal Tenenbaums

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Moonrise Kingdom

The Darjeeling Limited

Bottle Rocket

 

Note: The top three could probably be placed in any order. Also: I hate Wes Anderson just a tiny little bit. So precious and determinedly whimsical. But so fucking talented and delightful.

If this is true, Jenny McCarthy is actually a hero.

‘Ullo! ‘Ullo

My opinion at first is that this opossum is secretly some kind of English comic from days of yore. He clearly has a lot of charm. Look at that mug! “Cutest possum ever” says the photo caption on Pinterest.

But, do opossums have that dark line on their faces like that? Do they smile? I haven’t even started questioning whether they hang upside down holding flowers. Until I find the taxidermy website. Yes, this opossum is dead! Taxidermy: The original Photoshop for cute animals

Happy spring everyone!

Best Internet Advice Ever

I saved this because it is so great. I have it saved on my desktop as “Best Internet Advice Ever” and sometimes I open it up. It never fails to impress. I don’t have any idea who these people are and I don’t remember what Shirley said to elicit this wisdom.

Fuckin’ fake ass ponies. You know who you are.

This is from a comic called Eat More Bikes, which is also good general advice.
