JusWondering… Why Do I Look So Angry?

…especially while playing Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters at Disneyland?

Reasons why I’m JusWondering:

  • I did get the highest score in my family.

258,000 points vs. 48,000 points vs. 10,000 points…

  • I was on a children’s ride.
  • I was playing a game.
  • Perhaps…

…perhaps it was because I was riding solo.

  • (I think it was because I was concentrating on my HIGH SCORE OF 258,000 POINTS!)

So, Duh! Pop Quiz… License Plates Edition

I’m on the road a lot for my job, and I’ve seen more than my fair share of stupid personalized license plates.  There are even a few in the parking lot of my office that are idiotic!

So for today’s So, Duh! Pop Quiz, I figured I’d look up a couple celebrities’ personalized license plates, and see if you could figure out whom they belonged to.  Good luck!

Coinkydink Or Coinkydonk? Vinylmation, Meet Kidrobot

While in Caleeforneeuh (that was my Governator impersonation), of course I had to visit the Disneyland and Caleeforneeuh Adventure Theme Parks.

While there, we happened upon a new Disney merchandising gimmick entitled… Vinylmation.

A taste:

Not to be confused with the Divinyls and "touching one's self"...

I should clarify this… it was I that was unfamiliar with the products.  My mother had already known about them and happened to purchase two earlier this year.  They were the display image on her phone, and I had no idea what they were until finding these at the park.  Mystery solved.

(SIDENOTE: It should also be known that my entire family is very Disney-fied. So much to the point that my brother knows – and swears by this fact – that the best gummy candies in the world are found in Disney theme parks.  He feels the same about their chocolate-covered pretzels, too.)

(SIDENOTE ADDENDUM: I’d have to agree about the gummy candy.  My brother thinks it’s because they use sugar from beets.)

Anyzip-a-dee-doo-dah, upon spying these Vinylmations, I immediately thought of these:

These are Ye Olde English Dunnies (I don't know if I should have pluralized it).

Kidrobot makes (or distributes) these painted vinyl rabbits, each called a Dunny (like I said, I don’t know if I can pluralize it).

Did The House of The Mouse rip it off?

Is it a Coinkydink or a Coinkydonk?

No, I really want to know.

Actually, I probably don’t care.

BONUS RIPOFF!

The only reason I know about Kidrobot is because of these:

Yes. These were sold by Taco Bell.

A Handful Of… Songs I Haven’t Heard In A While

This post begins a series of what should mostly reflect my recent trip to California.  My brother moved out there; I used to live out there.  I wouldn’t say that I missed being out there, so I’ll type it: I missed being out there.

For one, I love my 89x here in Michigan.  Well actually, Canada.  While out there, I forgot how much I enjoyed KROQ, and I was glad to find that its playlist hadn’t really changed.

Here are A Handful Of songs I haven’t heard in a while that I heard there:

  • Bad Religion’s Infected
  • White Town’s Your Woman
  • Stabbing Westward’s Save Yourself
  • Sneaker Pimps’ 6 Underground
  • Ming Tea’s BBC

(Okay… that last one I heard while at Universal Studios.)

Drunken Recollection… An Incendiary Idea To Combat Incendiary Ideas

Travelling by plane used to be fun.  Well, I still enjoy it, but it used to be more fun.  (I really, really hate taking off my shoes.)

But all the increased security does, in my opinion, is increase frustration.  So one day while I was drinking, I was thinking:

If the authorities are looking for religious zealots, why not single them out by showing offensive posters?

I mean, if someone is that religious that they’re willing to blow themselves up for their beliefs, their reaction to a questionable image would definitely be a tell, right?

Take for instance, this poster:

I know, right?  And how about this particularly nasty one:

Well that should be enough to give you a good idea of what I’m talking about.  Now excuse me… after making those, I’ve got some vomiting to do.

No, it’s not from making those pictures…

…it’s from drinking!

InASense, Lost.. The Flintstones Made A Dick Joke?!

This clip comes from Asylum’s list of the Dirtiest Sexual Innuendos in Children’s Cartoons, but I have to put it here because it sort of shocked me.

I know the show originally aired in prime time, but I don’t even think The Simpsons would try what The Flintstones pulled here

– and no, that’s not an innuendo.

Just Sh–ty To The Sh–… When Life Gives You Mormons, Make (Sorta) Porn!

I don’t think it’s particular to Mormons, but maybe adhering to its rules (beliefs?) (doctrines?) (bat-shit crazy guidelines?) is strictly Mormon.  A guy that couldn’t look at porn devised a work around dubbed bubbling.  Basically, it’s an optical illusion – and a fair effective one.

But I prefer the old Catholic way… look at real porn and feel guilty about it.

One last side prayer:

Please let these girls be legal.
