I was surfing. And I came across this.
It's just some person's journal.
I have no idea where the picture comes from, or even whether or not it's genuine. But it's funny.( Picture behind the cut!Collapse ) Current Mood: amused

"Don't Blame Me... I Voted With the Majority"
I received this in a forwarded e-mail, so my apologies if you've already seen it a million times... it was my first.This is a clothing label from a small American company
that sells their product in France.
* Wash with warm water.
* Use mild soap.
* Dry flat.
* Do not use bleach.
* Do not dry in the dryer.
* Do not iron.
* We are sorry that Our President is an idiot.
* We did not vote for him.

And These Guys are Pros?
It's one thing that Planter's named their new product "Nut Poppers
", but it's quite another that they actually used an photo that reinforces the mental image! Current Mood: surprised

How come whenever this one shows up,
I'm reminded of this...
Yeah, baby! Individually wrapped for your convenience. :P Current Mood: silly

Drana Krall: Great Canadian Songstress
This one's for the ladies. Well, okay, maybe not, but these photos were taken inside the men's washroom, so, umm, I dunno. It's less exciting than it sounds even.( Behold the poster for the new Diana Krall album!Collapse )
Finally, some much-needed exposure for great Canadian artists writing about what they know: Canada. You know, like Elvis Costello (British)
and... uh... Tom Waits (American)
... Mose Allison (also American)
The best album cover EVAR.
Okay, so someone linked to that "ten worst album covers ever," post on diaryland just recently. I'd seen it a while ago, but had just sort of skimmed it. I somehow missed out on the pure joy of this cover the first time. Without further ado, I present to you ( the best, or perhaps second best, or maybe just kind of momentarily amuing album cover EVAR!Collapse )
I'm sorry, but that totally rocks. Who knew Jude Law started his career as a model for Tops Records? And what the hell is she doing with her left foot?
The best part is the subtitle, though: "FEATURING THE FINEST IN TOP HIT ENTERTAINMENT."
I wonder how many people out there provide only mediocre top hit entertainment.

In Canada, for those of you unluckily not in Canada, we have this weird thing with skill testing questions on all contests and giveaways. The theory is that if you have some test of skill, then it's not purely luck and isn't a lottery / gambling / something requiring complicated permits, etc. Or something. Whichever. I'm not a lawyer.
That said, the skill testing questions are never exactly challenging. They are usually things like, "(15 x 2) - 10 = ?" You fill the blank in and away you go. It's not exactly a difficult question, and I've long wondered to whom these were tests of skill. But then, I've met some exceedingly math-dim people.
I actually ran across this today, though. Not only does the question astound me, but the fact that it's multiple choice does it one better. I now present to you the pinnacle of skill testing questions on Canadian contests:
(Taken from a NOW Magazine contest to win a dinner for two at an Ethiopian restaurant.)
Okay, so like, yes, I agree that people who can't answer this should not be allowed to win prizes. On the other hand, I really must formally protest the use of the term, "skill," here. Current Mood: incredulous

Dr. Arizona, to the ER!
( Diagnostic fluids.Collapse )
The operative bit: "This product is a food, not a drug. It is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any diseases."
Diagnose? What hapless goofball consumer buys a fruit drink hoping it will diagnose his or her ailments? How would it *tell* you? (If the beverage turns blue, you're having a baby!)

iron chef chocolate bars
My wife was out at the mall a while back and picked me up something really, really great
:( Iron Chef French!Collapse )
I must say that the challenger
would have won this Peanut Butter Battle
. The bar was largely flavourless, and was presented without flair or imagination.
Sakai isn't my favourite Iron Chef; Chen Kenichi is, and I'd probably like his food the best, too (Szechuan usually!). And what's up with that Iron Chef Italian guy who's never on the show?
Apparently, there were three different bars, one per Iron Chef (Chinese, Japanese, French).
If you've never seen Iron Chef, it's the best cooking show ever
. Current Mood: amused

Ok, this isn't really a "product", but it's still reprehensible (hopefully the link stays put for a while so we can mock it): Current Mood: *shudder*

missed it by that much
GM renames its upcoming wankmobile Current Mood: amused
Canoe | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"A General Motors executive yesterday admitted that the future Buick model - which is set to debut late next year - will be re-named in Canada after GM learned LaCrosse is a Quebec slang term for masturbation... GM vice-chairman Bob Lutz, who was in Toronto yesterday to address a gathering of GM dealers, said he wasn't aware of LaCrosse's racy roots although he speaks French and spent three years living in Paris. 'I thought I knew every expression existing in the French language for self-gratification, including the crudest ones known to man,' said the outspoken Lutz."
