Beer for Warnicks?

It's an import from Japan. You'll love it?
Maybe. If you like your beer to taste like fish.















Read the review here at the wonderful "Mike's Blender".

And now for something completely different.

A Word from Kenneth Branagh  on Shakespeare

Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross introduced me properly to Shakespeare, strange but true. It was during an early English Literature class. Our reluctant group of novice Shakespeareans were all prepared for a turgid beginning to our high school literature studies. As a mixture of nervous dread and dull groans spread around the room, Mr. Grue, our teacher, brought out an ancient record player, which he placed on his desk. There was a little excitement. Perhaps he was going to play us a recording of Romeo and Juliet and at least save us the toe-curling embarrassment of reading this incomprehensible stuff aloud.

"Listen to this," he announced in a voice that commanded attention.

Imagine our surprise when out of this Edisonian contraption came the familiar strains of the chart hit "You Are Everything." Strains is the right word, as the number began with a low orgasmic growling the rang from the seriously Mr. Gaye and a soaringly moist response from Miss Ross's much affected soprano. Mr. Grue stopped the record and faced the bemused class. Where did Shakespeare come in?

"Now what was that all about?" Perplexed faces all around.

"Sex, you twerps!"

Suppressed giggles all round. Yes, it was.

"Now open Romeo and Juliet and let's find out where Shakespeare used it."

The noises of pages turning by excited singers was deafening. I don't think I've ever looked back. Thank you, Mr. Grue.

Best Article Title in a long long while...

Not that this is NSFW exactly- the article is clean, but the title could get you an odd second look.
Anyway, articles like this- let alone with such a great title- do not come along every day.

You are making a German spectacle of yourself!

When it comes to getting a blend of talent, over the top kitcsh and Eruopeans not having any idea just how silly they can be, nothing- and I do mean nothing- can beat the  Eurovision song contest.  Here's Germany's entry for 2009. Wait for the giant lips to drop....

Good thing they didn't order hot wax.

Okay, it's a commercial. But funny. Yes. Funny. And Tchaikovsky works really well with a spot free rinse.

Okay, so it may be an Acura advertisment. Who cares? Kind of reminds me of the underground tunnel between the "B" and "C" wings of the United Airlines terminal at ORD.
