[Officially "wrong"][But still funny] LEGO Strip Club...

This Is Why I am Broke - Lego Strip Club

Things in LEGOville just got interesting now that the LEGO strip club set up shop. This childhood ruining set includes everything your LEGO people need for a good old night of debauchery including shapely exotic dancers, a world class DJ, and stacks of cash.



Again, that's just wrong. The price shock you? Hello... strip club...

Actually, it's the custom paint, but still... lol

[Flowchart of the day] "When Should I Reply All?"

bitchwhocodes - Should I Reply All – A Flowchart

It’s easy to just hit the reply-all button. Perhaps a little more thought might make our email just a tad bit more manageable. Perhaps a flow chart would help? Big thanks to Val Head (@vlh) for helping me spiff up this flowchart that might help you decide if you really need to reply all?



When should you Big R or Little R? Reply All or not? Here's a flowchart you should reply with the next time you're stuck in a Reply-All pile of ... :/

Game of Thrones travel via Kayak, book your carriage or ship today

technabob - Book Your Vacation to Winterfell Using Kayak

Now you can finally book that vacation to Winterfell you’ve been dying to go on. Or you can visit King’s Landing. Why not Pentos? will help you travel the Seven Kingdoms, since they have teamed up with HBO to help you get information on traveling around Westeros and Essos.


The ten cities you can travel between are:

  • Kings Landing, Westeros (KLA)
  • Oldtown, Westeros (OLT)
  • Lannisport, Westeros (LPR)
  • Gulltown, Westeros (GUN)
  • White Harbor, Westeros (WHI)
  • Winterfell, Westeros (WFL)
  • Pyke, Iron Islands, Westeros (PYK)
  • Tyrosh, Essos (YRH)
  • Pentos, Essos (PEO)
  • Braavos, Essos (BRV)


Now that's an awesome marketing play...

Oh Unicorn Barf!

Instructables - Unicorn Barf

Ever since I found out that you can buy cereal marshmallows in bulk on the internet, I have been dreaming about making cereal marshmallow marshmallow treats. Similar to rice cereal treats, but with only the best part of any cereal- the cereal marshmallows! They have affectionately become known as "unicorn barf" around these parts, for obvious reasons, but what is a bad day for a unicorn is a delicious day for everyone else! They are super simple to make and look really pretty!



What can you say about a name like that? (Well, you can say it's much better than "Unicorn Poo"... LOL )

Hungry... yum...

IT Aphorisms - (For example, "I’m not afraid of hard work, unless it is me doing it.")

simple talk - Phil Factor - IT Aphorisms

An aphorism is a concise or laconic statement that expresses an element of truth, and maybe a sting in the tail. such as ‘I’m an atheist, thank God’, or ‘The bearing of a child takes nine months, no matter how many women are assigned.’ An aphorism that is too often repeated becomes a clichĂ©.

The literature of Information Technology in general is short of aphorisms. It IT, we don’t tend to use them much, Although DBAs will recognize Paul Randal’s famous ‘The answer, as always, is that it depends.’ we generally pine for the seventies when greats such as Fred Brooks Jr, with his classic ‘The Mythical Man-Month’, used the form to perfection. It is full of aphorisms such as ‘our estimating techniques fallaciously confuse effort with progress, hiding the assumption that men and months are interchangeable’, ‘Adding manpower to a late software project makes it later..’, or ‘How does a project get to be a year late?… One day at a time’. Fred Brooks wrote in a flowing prose style of extended aphorisms and the book is as fresh as when it appeared in 1975

I’d like to attempt to revive the tradition of the aphorism in IT writing and presentations, and to get you started I came up with a few to give you the idea of the sort of humor I enjoy. I hope you’ll contribute your own aphorisms as comments.

  • Excuse this complex and intricate code, I didn’t have the time to make it simple.
  • If every well-known DBA in the world was laid end-to-end, I’d assume it was the effect of the evening Partying at SQL PASS.
  • I’m not afraid of hard work, unless it is me doing it.
  • The only time you can predict the release date of software is after it has happened.
  • Only a youngster can make a fortune with a startup, since age brings the knowledge and experience that it is impossible.
  • ...

[Humor] Death by Cube...

Agile Scout - The Slow Cubicle Death – Welcome to Corporate America [Funny]

This guy does say:

“Pushing me to the brink of homicide… maybe lose my mind… maybe kill him.”

Since people at work might (maybe, could be, okay they never do, but just in case...) I'm going to keep my comments to myself. But I did have a sympathetic laugh at this this morning...

Katniss the cat in the kitty remake of The Hunger Games

CNET - Katniss the kitty? Cats remake 'The Hunger Games'

"Meow the odds be ever in your favor!" The Pet Collective casts cats in the roles of Katniss Everdeen and the other beloved characters from "The Hunger Games."

(Image Credit: CNET -> The Pet Collective)

It's hard to improve on the hit movie and beloved best-selling series "The Hunger Games" -- unless, of course, you replace all the humans with cats. Instead of elaborate special effects, the movie set is "Sweded" (re-created using the cheapest materials possible) into a cardboard masterpiece. Or is that meow-sterpiece?


Having just recently read the three Catching Fire books, well, watching this put a whole new light on the series. And it's pretty darn funny too... :)

Zombie Post of the Day #2: Zombie Combat Battalion Scrolls (ZOCOM) - Get your Zombie Tab here...

Zombie Combat Battalion Scrolls (ZOCOM)


Soldiers qualified for Zombie combat wear the Zombie tab. Those serving in one of four Zombie combat BNs wear the scroll.

The Zombie Combat Command has seen much success in the past three years. Containing all major Zombie incidents within the United States, the creation of the 26th Zombie Combat Regiment, with four Zombie Combat Battalions has been approved. The first, second and third Zombie Combat Battalions are actively recruiting soldiers to fill their ranks.

For more information, please visit our website:


Here are some reasons why you should be a member of the 26th Zombie Combat Regiment.
1) Show that you are second to none when it comes to killing Zombies.
2) Get featured in the Zombie Combat Command comic!
3) If you get the fireteam or fireteam leader backings, you can feature yourself and three others in the comic.
4) If you get the squad or squad leader backings, you can feature yourself and nine others in the comic!
5) You can order Zombie tabs (issued ONLY by ZOCOM) at any time. No need to wait for recruitment or drives.


Come on you know you want to pony up some funds to get you and your team part of one of the Zombie Combat Battalions (1st is my choice, but 2nd works too, having spent some time in the 2D... ;) With 14 days to go, of the total 15, they've already hit their funding too.

I've had to keep myself uber-busy today to avoid my wife's wrath (i.e. I SO want the big package for my team and son, but... but... um... maybe if I loot the change bottle... um... ;)
