Hard-Working Moles Are Good Moles

Links of note.

The most disturbing words you'll hear today regarding copulation between animals: "love dart." It's a snail thing. And it's freaky weird. Isabellla Rossellini even thinks so.

Spam was apparently at one point friends with speef and spork.

A question you may have already asked: WTF CNN?

A literal reworking of "Total Eclipse of the Heart." Is better than anything you could have hoped for.

"Taylor Momsen Did Not Write This Headline" — on the dying art of a once-valued aspect of journalism and not about Taylor Momsen at all.

Film titles are getting longer and less standardized

Previously unknown frog has a bizarrely pointed nose.

The House of Mirth as a poorly played Choose Your Own Adventure book. Spoiler: The chooser does not chose well.

Why does just about every fork only have four tines?

A fake McDonald's exists in the City of Industry that only functions as a place to shoot commercials. And it's nicer than whatever McDonald's you live next to. For those who Back of the Cereal Box readers who live in the City of Industry, you may know this location as "that exceptionally clean McDonald's that is never open."

I'm not one to shill for big-name commercial products, but this video advertising Tostitos restaurant-style salsa is pretty amazing. But you have to view it embedded on this page to get the full effect.

Male antelopes increase their chances of inseminating a female of their species by tricking said females into thinking a predator is nearby, thereby preventing them from running away.

For reals, spoken to Mickey Mouse: "If you want to commit suicide, use this."

Tell Me Again Why I Can't Be a Manta Ray.

When Zsa Zsa Gabor cameoed in on of the Freddy Krueger movies.

Inexplicably, The Lawrence Welk Show does "One Toke Over the Line."

Was the Bugs Bunny-Michael Jordan movie Space Jam based on an ancient Mayan sacred text? The answer may surprise you? Seriously the strangest thing I've read online this year.

And, because it will never happen again, a Lost-specific link dump:
And two videos for your face:

The song "Death Cab for Cutie" by the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band — mentioned on this blog years ago but deprived of a video until now. (Via Vovatumblr.)

Hello, Hello! Via Towleroad, Goldfrapp's video for "Alive." Given that this song is my new thing to wake up to, this video — Xanadu-era Electric Light Orchestra meets The Walking Dead — was not at all what I was expecting. And as a result I like it all the more. Also: a kickass song

  1. Well, I took a look at the first link and I don't think I can handle any more for today. I've seen the Green Porn thing before, only it was about ducks, and much less vocals were involved.
