Thai Beef Meets US Beef

I offered the ox a taste of beef, but he refused, saying that he was Hindu, and although this could be viewed as narcissistic, it hardly hinted at cannibalism. “Besides,” he said, “where I’m from, ‘corn fed’ isn’t a compliment.”

I guess you could call them yardlong beans, but most of the world switched to a better system long ago, and besides, where’s the fun in that?

Top this.

It’s very rare to find someone who’s the master of so many things.

When I told Max not too step on or over headstones, he asked if it was because they are traps.

I remember being told not to do the same thing decades ago in a cemetery in Hawaii. I remember asking if it was because it’s impolite to step on people’s heads.

I like how people in a sane world can use certain words and not totally lose their shit. Besides, it’s a warm & fuzzy single action.

Sony hates you.

“Last Friday, Sony Music sent Gummy Soul a cease and desist order for Amerigo Gazaway’s “Bizarre Tribe: A Quest To The Pharcyde”.”

Sony just doesn’t get it:
They don’t know how to make good products anymore.
They don’t understand “fair use.”
They don’t know how to get back all the loyal customers they chased away over the years…
It seems they only want to make a last few bucks before Samsung and Apple and all the other companies who do get it (a little better, at least) collectively piss on their grave.

Die, Sony, die.

By the way, the album mentioned above is simply sublime.

– NOTICE OF BAGGAGE INSPECTION –

To protect you and your fellow passengers, the XSA is required by law to steal your wife’s panties and confiscate your house keys so you can’t get in when you arrive home from your 26 hour flight at midnight inspect all checked baggage. Your bag was among those selected for physical inspection (possibly because it contained used women’s undergarments).

During the inspection, your bag and its contents may have been searched for prohibited or tantalizing items. At the completion of the inspection, many of the contents were returned to your bag (albeit not in the orderly or sensible fashion in which they were originally packed). Also, we forgot to completely zip up the outside pockets so that stuff was falling out of it when it reached the baggage carousel. In addition, we forgot to replace the suitcase straps… Our bad!

If the XSA officer was unable to open your bag for inspection because it was locked, the officer may have been forced to break the crappy die-cast metal locks meant to keep out petty thieves and perverts¬†on your bag. Our bad! We routinely invest in million dollar x-ray porn machines, but can’t afford a bent paper clip! XSA sincerely regrets having to do this, however, XSA is not liable for damage to your locks resulting from this necessary security precaution (because if we wanted to be accountable for our actions, we wouldn’t work for the government!).

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

There couldn’t possibly be a western equivalent to this horrifying act of culinary cruelty, right?

Wrong:

Attributing this reaction to ionic exchange somehow doesn’t make it less difficult to watch (again and again).
