Sunday Burst of Weird and AWESOME!

Oddities and Awesome abound!

:: There was a hoax last week regarding KFC, which claimed that the makers of the "Double Down" sandwich, which substitutes fried chicken breasts for the bun, had come up with a sandwich that actually did use a bun -- with the main sandwich ingredient being Original Recipe chicken skins.

Well, it seems that someone was a bit disappointed that this was a hoax, so they took matters into their own hands and made their own KFC "Skinwich".

I love these people. It's this kind of thinking that's going to end the recession once and for all, folks!

:: I'll bet you all never thought you'd feel sorry for a common, annoying housefly. Well, you will when you watch this video. You can almost see the flies thinking, "Oh God I am so f***ed...."

:: It's always weird when this happens: I write about something from years ago, a movie or a book or something, and then within weeks I find out something new and weird about it. Case in point: the movie Krull. It seems that way back in 1983, the studio behind Krull was willing to try some interesting publicity stunts, like inviting a bunch of couples to a movie theater to have Krull-themed weddings. Before the movie even opened.

Sadly, the article doesn't include any thoughts from actual Krull-wedding participants. I'd love to know the same things the writer would like to know. (The writer certainly seems unfairly down on Krull as a movie, though. I, for one, think it would be really cool to have one of the Glaives from the movie!)

:: Note to my readers in the Beaverton, OR area or anyone planning to visit: Beware the buttocks grabber! Via Steven Den Beste, who seems a bit defensive about this. Hmmmmm.

More next week!

I would go to one of those Krull themed weddings only to get my hads on a couple of those glaive table decorations. It always seemed like the coolest weapon to me. You can throw it with more accuracy than anything larger than a throwing star and maybe, just maybe, it will come back to you. I mean the areodynamics are there for that to work so you get two slices at a guy. It also just looks cool flying through the air and the swish sound it makes.
