Sound of a chipmunk: Weird chipmunk noise

The chipmunk noise in this video was recorded on our front doorstep a couple of years ago, but we have the same situation in the backyard today. After weeks of air conditioned cabin fever during the Heat Wave of 2011, the windows are finally open here at the...

Jack Handey is a real person, and just to prove it, he got himself born 60 years ago today. Even Wikipedia agrees that “Handey is a real person, not a pen name or a character,” so happy birthday, Mr. Handey. Even though Jack Handey has authored books...

SNL skits: Fred Armisen, ‘Obama Plays It Cool’

Fred Armisen was jeered pretty roundly when he started playing Barack Obama on SNL, but I always thought he had keyed in on several quirky traits, and that the parody just keeps getting better and better. Last night’s “Obama Plays It Cool” piece was...
Faucet instructions from Peerless are funny

Faucet instructions from Peerless are funny

Amy and her boss were replacing a faucet yesterday. They began by dutifully reading the instructions. Pretty soon they were laughing out loud at lines like “Good luck to you, and may all your coupling nuts turn freely,” and “Step 1G: Spit and drink a...
