- The New York Times ran a story on recent military casualties in Iraq; among the soldiers mentioned was Corporal Jeffrey Starr. Read Michelle Malkin to find out what the Times could have found "fit to print" about Corporal Starr, but didn't.
- On Scooter Libby, go see Jeff Goldstein, and the Minute Man. And that's all I have to say about that.
- Suppose you were introducing a brand of clothes
specifically aimed at nursing mothers. What clever
name could you think up? Whoa, hold on, smart guy, don't make it too
I've got a good brand name for the baby's clothes, though: "Suckler's Raiment". Ha!
(That might be the first ever actual pun here at Pun Salad. Sorry.)
- An optical illusion of a type I hadn't seen before: Mr. Angry and Mrs. Calm. (Via GeekPress, who has a link to the paper describing the trick.)
I rented this movie because I thought it would be dumb fun, but it turned out to be more dumb than fun. (Although that might just be me; Mrs. Salad really liked it.)
Just a lot of mindless action, one-dimensional characters I didn't care too much about, mostly flat jokes, an absurd plot. Even the sainted William H. Macy gives a lackluster performance. (But Delroy Lindo was good, in his 1.8 minutes of screen time!)
An actor named Rainn Wilson has a role in this, and I kept trying to figure out where I'd seen him before. IMDB coughed up the answer: he plays Dwight in The Office (American version) on TV. OK, I guess that's good acting.
