It’s almost November, and that means it’s time to start thinking about holiday shopping! OK, I know holiday shopping can be stressful and I think it’s nothing short of stupid how people swarm to the mall on the day after Thanksgiving, but it should be fun and shopping online definitely helps!

Anyway, we’re here to help. Dee points out a couple great gift ideas in this article. This one has to be my favorite:

Hillary Clinton Nutcracker



Yup, the Hillary Clinton Nutcracker. It’s only a shame there aren’t more products like this for our presidential candidates, but I guess we’ll have to take what we can get.

We all get email forwards and, love them or hate them, many of them are damned funny! If you’re like me you hate the interruption that a constant flow of forwards bring along with the foolish chain letters and other garbage that typically come along with it.

Enter DeesInBox.com. Dee handpicks the best forwards to post on DeesInBox.com including jokes, stories, funny videos and pictures.

The site is great! You can go to the site anytime you need a little distraction (instead of being distracted when others send you forwards,) follow along through RSS, leave comments, and if you really must send something to all your friends, you can send a link instead of forwarding bunches of pictures.

Check out DeesInBox.com any time you need a good laugh or to catch up on the latest jokes, forwards and viral videos.

I find myself on the road again with another example of something you don’t really want to hear when you’re boarding an aircraft:

From a pilot clearly hurrying out of the plane: “Excuse me, I need to make sure this thing will fly.”

After my previous post of things you don’t want to hear on an airplane a couple people posted good comments, but I think this one is my favorite:

Kees posted: “Please fasten your seatbelts. We’re going to try to land.”

There is something satisfying about “Top X” lists, no matter how contrived they may be. Well, since it’s that time of the year, here’s eWeek.com’s 15 Geekiest Vacations.

Star Trek Convention


On a personal note, Carla’s vacation came in at #5, but somehow the anime convention didn’t make the list (sorry Tom.)

The Phat Phree has compiled an impressive list of the Top 50 Local TV Commercials. These are the low budget, lower talent commercials for mom-and-pop businesses and small chains that your local television channel features late at night.

The compilation is quite impressive although the top five are all for the same business. They’re funny, but I don’t think they deserved to get all five places.

Here are a couple of my favorites.

Jhoon Rhee Taekwondo

This is really part commercial, part sing-along.

The Des Moines Renaissance Faire

I bet the announcer came with the venue.

Eagle Insurance

Just wrong.

For more of these gems including discount food, talking tamales and a number of the worst raps ever check out the whole list.

Thanks to Kirsten for pointing this out to me.
