Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this WWWednesday!

Yeah, WWWednesday! Greetings to everyone. Sorry that this blog has gotten a little stale over the last few days. Things have been wicked busy! Without further ado, let's just right into the nonsense...

1) History quiz first... Look at the title of this post. I'm sure many readers will remember who used that line (not referring to a WWWednesday, obviously) in a speech. For Jim J. Bullock and the win, why is that quote relevant to today?

2) I was reminded earlier this week that Weird Al is a genius. And it appears that he wrote a song just for me. Check it out! This isn't quite as good as "The Saga Begins" and "Amish Paradise" is still the all-time king of the Weird Al hill.

3) Speaking of "Amish Paradise", whatever happened to Coolio? It seems like the last thing I remember about him is the whole spat with Weird Al... Mess with the Polka-Parody King and ya gon' get served, fool!

4) Continuing on the white and nerdy line, get ready to be thrilled: A previously unreleased Tolkien book is expected to hit the shelves next year. While I doubt it could stack up to the LOTR series, it will still be worth checking out.

5) Ahhh... The dangers of stardom. Consider, if you will, the plight of Thomas Wilson. Destined for fame and stardom, Thomas was cast into the role of Biff Tannen in the Back to the Future flicks. Sadly, such success came with bonds that he was never able to break. At least he has a good sense of humor about it.

6) WARNING!!! The end is at hand (yes, again)! Gigantic killer bugs are attacking... I would like to extend a special welcome to our new insect overlords!

7) With the arrival of the insect invaders, that $1.76M space trip from Neiman Marcus is looking like a good bet, ain't it?

8)
It's just a little ridiculous to assert that you "don't play dirty[at football]" less than an hour after stomping your cleated foot on the face of an opponent. If you must do so, please remember to conveniently forget the previous incidents that might make you look bad.

9) I wonder if bears experience hangovers like people... What a crappy way to start the spring.

10)
There've only been a couple seach engine oddities worth mentioning this week.
  • People in Malaysia seem to think that I know something about defining calvinism.
  • There must be a revival of Herrick's poetry in Europe, since 5 people arrived here looking for "Gather ye rosebuds". That or they've released some new version of DPS...
  • The Revolution in the Third World will not be televised. But I will liveblog it.
