Star Wars Mashups

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

 I found this collection of Star Wars mashups via an internal company newsletters (yeah, I work for a cool company.)

(Mashup: “In Web development, a mashup is a Web page or application that uses and combines data, presentation or functionality from two or more sources to create new services.”)

You gotta love Star Wars.  There’s something here to offend every fan.

Star Wars .. and Scooby Doo!  Cool.

Star Wars … and Monsters and BobbleHeads! (This is getting wrong)

Star Wars … and Disney characters.  (Getting Wronger, but check them out!)

Star Wars … and Hello Kitty.  (This is just wrong.)  (especially Chewbacca)

Star Wars … and Dr. Seuss. (Now we’re back to cool.  Check these out – he has more.)

(sorry again about the Hello Kitty)

 Star Wars … and Winnie The Pooh.

Say what you like, but I love this one, ’cause I like Pooh and Eyore as much as I like Star Wars.

Funny.

I have nothing to add to this video.  You’ll love it or just scratch your head.

The video is … amazing.  I fear to even glance at the comments.

I’m guessing  NextGenHacker is wishing the internet had an undo button.

The Census

“I have dual citizenship. With the United States and Florida.”

OK. This is not very timely, but I still laugh out loud every time I watch.

This is from a Saturday Night Live skit, via Flowing Data.

Personal Space … and Grapes

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

 I like this advertisement, mostly for the psychology.

I like this video because I’ve always liked the old “got any grapes” joke on which this is based.

Secret for a long happy life

Monday, January 24th, 2011

A bald, wizened little man was rocking in a chair on his porch, smiling happily. A passerby, charmed by his smile, came up to him and said, “I couldn’t help noticing how happy you look. What’s your secret for a long happy life?”

“I smoke three packs of cigarettes a day,” he said with a toothless grin. “I drink a case of whiskey a week, eat fast food, and never exercise.”

“No way! How old are you?”

“Twenty-six.”

Do Not Destroy. Urgent Documents Enclosed.

Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

 Do Not Destroy

DO NOT DESTROY.  DO NOT BEND.

URGENT

DOCUMENTS ENCLOSED.

Yes, this is petty,  but it grabbed my ire today and shook it.

By no stretch of anyone’s imagination is a sale flyer from Dish Networks URGENT.  It strains our language to call this “DOCUMENTS”

Harumph.

Dear Postmaster.  Please do not destroy this letter, as I assume you do to those not otherwise marked.

Head vs. Gut

A ball and bat together cost $1.10.  The bat costs $1.00 more than the ball.

How much does the ball cost?

Nuts and Flakes: The Economic Argument

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

This is a silly presentation (often the best kind), but he’s absolutely right – for any “it”, if it worked, somebody would be making money with it (and not just by selling plans on the internet.)
