[profile] kradical shared this a couple of days ago. If you know the original song, this is brilliant. Even if you don't, it's funny. There's one obscenity in the lyrics, and the subject matter is risque, so it's not a song for everyone. But it made me giggle.

Entertainment Weekly does a Picture of the Day feature, and today's is spoilery for the 11 September episode of "White Collar."
Stuck back here because of spoilery-ness. )

...I bring you this clip from "Sports Night." (Episode is "April is the Cruelest Month")

(Eagle-eyed viewers may recognize the guys playing the suits. I use that terminology deliberately in relation to one of them.)

(Same guy is in this one.)

A friend posted this to G+...

Sorkin's Recycled Dialogue.

Almost 7 1/2 minutes of Sorkin characters saying similar-if-not-identical things.

(I note there was no "OK" section, but that could've filled 20+ minutes all on its own.)

Clip from the next episode of "Srugim" (YouTube link).

(Clip is in Hebrew without either Hebrew or English subtitles; let the viewer beware.)

Srugim spoilers after the jump )

The really funny part is at the end, when language is used to prove identity.

-- A coworker of mine does rock climbing as a hobby. He did a presentation at a lunch-and-learn a while ago about the climbing, and in the midst of it he mentioned how wonderful merino wool is. Since I am currently working in merino (Debbie Bliss Merino Aran, for those who understand what that means) (I'm making gloves that I will post about as soon as I have more than just my one prototype glove), I showed him what merino looks like in ball form (rather than in clothing form). And it made me wonder how frequently people find the juncture between knitters and rock climbers, conversationwise. (It's probably pretty frequent, given the interest both have in quality fabric production.)

-- As discussion of this year's early (11 March 2012) Hugo nomination deadline heats up, I've been seeing a lot of references to "Hugo nom deadline." This made me wonder if it was the deadline for chomping on Hugos. (Om nom nom!)

-- Blechy, rainy weather today. Blech. Still beats snow.

-- Cool video seen on the ABE Books blog: Dancing Books (link to YouTube video)

-- Squeaker decided my outfit today, having rejected the outfit I'd originally laid out. Mind you, this was *my* clothing, not *hers*.

-- Muffin was ill earlier this week, but she's doing fine now. Moral of the story? Muffin should eat blueberries more deliberately and with forethought.

-- There are still two slots available in the handcrafts meme I posted a couple of days ago.

SEVEN BAR JOKES
INVOLVING GRAMMAR
AND PUNCTUATION.


BY ERIC K. AULD


- - - -

1. A comma splice walks into a bar, it has a drink and then leaves.

2. A dangling modifier walks into a bar. After finishing a drink, the bartender asks it to leave.

3. A question mark walks into a bar?

4. Two quotation marks “walk into” a bar.

5. A gerund and an infinitive walk into a bar, drinking to drink.

6. The bar was walked into by the passive voice.

7. Three intransitive verbs walk into a bar. They sit. They drink. They leave.

Ian Randal Strock, who among other things is the author of the upcoming Random House book The Presidental Book of Lists: From Most to Least, Elected to Rejected, Worst to Cursed—Fascinating Facts About Our Chief Executives, has started a blog devoted to a discussion of US Presidents, Vice Presidents, their families, elections, and things relating to them.

[personal profile] mabfan and I are fascinated by presidential trivia and history, and the blog looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.

Check it out at http://uspresidents.livejournal.com (or [profile] uspresidents).
