What the hell is up with fake blue eyes in commercials?  Some lousy Father’s Day commercial came on today and I was immediately struck by the little boy with spice addiction.  His eyes were glowing blue and when I paused it to get a closer look, it turns out he has no pupils.  This crappy photoshopping is ridiculous.  Do blue eyes really test so well you have to erase a child’s real eyes and replace them with electric blue ones? WTF people!

If you are in search of a blog that will put an end to all of your earthly troubles, look no further than the Noisy Channel.  Aside from being a font of knowledge that will turn you into an AI from a futurist’s dream, there have been reports that regular TNC readers have been cured of certain debilitating illnesses such as halitosis, trichodaganomania, and the often fatal googlemania.

What are you waiting for?

P.S.  Daniel, email me for the address of where you can send the check.

Let’s say you are standing next to a 10-foot tall box filled to the brim with blankets.  Wouldn’t you bark at it so the giant could lift you up and put you in it?

After a short period of discomfort, because he didn’t know what he was getting himself into, the little buddy is sleeping peacefully.

While at Oak Island, we visited the North Carolina Aquarium. It was decent, nothing on the Baltimore Aquarium, but it had some cool stuff. In the southeastern swampland exhibit, there was a very specific sign (below) about what not to do on the plants. When I trundled on the venus flytrap three feet away, I had the perfect excuse, but they didn’t buy it…

There was also an outdoor pond with a bale of baby turtles and some carp.

By now, the April Fools’ Day blog post shtick is so done that it has been reduced to one bad joke after another. It’s too much! I will be joining the Kloonigames Alliance Against Awfully Horrible Need-a-word-for- jokes-starting-with-N (KAAAHN).
