Ripped from the Bloglines

I have to say, I kind of miss the olden days when TinyTuna had to bring in a current events topic for the class. We would go out of our way to find something interesting, humorous or quirky that didn't involve guns, death, or Republicans. Just Kidding! Alas, 5th grade doesn't seem to include daily current events, so I have no outlet for all these newsworthy gems.

Except here.

You Might As Well Jump
Sponsored by Eddie Van Halen and a case of Mexican Beans, all good citizens of Planet Earth must click here to find out when you need to JUMP to help "stop global warming, extend daytime hours and create a more homogeneous climate." If World Peace is not involved, I'm not biting.

Another One of Your Rights....
Kraft makes road-kill candy. Public ponders both colors and flavors.
.............................................................Has Been Taken Away
From the AP Newswire: Production of road-kill shaped candy has come to a screeching halt. The AP Newswire passes on the obvious "puts the brakes on..." follow-up.

You Know, A Train! Choo-Chooo!!
Someone should have explained that "Take the A-Train" should not be taken literally.

Animals are ALWAYS Funny
Maybe it was a CHEESEHEAD preparing for Jump Day.

Crime and Punishment??
Something tells me Super Nanny would NOT sign off on this one...

Double Cheese, Hold the Orcs
Why interrupt gaming for such mundane activities such as sustenance? It's all about multitasking, baby. Battle a dark elf WHILE you order a large pizza supreme. What's next? Wait. I don't want to know.

Come On And Dance
In what is actually kind of sad news, The Numa Numa guy is going into hiding. He's depressed. He's embarrassed. (He works at Staples!) Anyway, what a bummer. Come back, Numa Numa guy! We love you!!

Hi GT... the following is a message to Numa Numa guy Gary. I know he reads your blog, and maybe if he asks your boyfriend nicely enough, he'll see this note.

Hey, Gary! Be not sad! There is a world of people out there who dance in their cars, who rock out at the kitchen sink, who sing in the shower, and they look a lot like YOU. And it's all good!

Your video made me happy. It gave me something to sing with my son in the car, and best of all, in the stairwell at work (good echo). It made me learn a bit of Romanian. Seeing the band's video made me appreciate Duran Duran!Gary, it's all good! Don't hide! Be stout and proud, and keep dancing!

Thanks, GT for the space.

Thanks GT, some funny (and odd) stuff out there!

As for the Numa Numa guy, it was funny, not in a "laughing at him" way, but in a "laughing with him" way. I had the tune running in my head for a few days. I hope he's ok--goodness knows I probably look goofy singing in the car!
