Lego Pitfall

Lego Pitfall!

(Via Killer Kitsch.)

From a long-ago and far-away place whence Minecraftian creations were assembled by the laying of hands onto square-shaped, interlocking plastic bricks sometimes augmented by Lincoln Logs. ;)

Because even Bigfoot shows up if you wait long enough…

Bill Watterson sighting in Pearls Before Swine

(Via Stephan Pastis.)

Recognize the artwork in that Pearls Before Swine second panel? Someone special drew that. Someone without whom countless childhoods spent reading the Sunday paper would have been all for naught. Here’s a hint:

The idea I proposed was that instead of having me get hit on the head, I would pretend that Pearls was being drawn by a precocious second grader who thought my art was crap. I named her “Libby,” which I then shorted to “Lib.” (Hint, hint: It’s almost “Bill” backwards.)

Follow the link, read Stephan’s story…and bask in the awesomeness that is the return of Mr. Bigfoot himself to the daily comics. Sort of.

Life was richer then…

You are dearly missed, Calvin and Hobbes.

Bill Watterson:

It’s always better to leave the party early. If I had rolled along with the strip’s popularity and repeated myself for another five, 10 or 20 years, the people now “grieving” for “Calvin and Hobbes” would be wishing me dead and cursing newspapers for running tedious, ancient strips like mine instead of acquiring fresher, livelier talent.

Still, it doesn’t seem right that Calvin and Hobbes should bow out so early while Garfield drones on and on and on—to say nothing of twenty years without Video Power. ;)

This would make quite the tattoo…if my right buttock wasn’t already reserved for Bender B. Rodriguez’s swanky visage. And before you make fun of me for choosing a foul-mouthed, cigar-smoking robot over, say, a naked beach babe packing a machine gun in each hand, check out this list of 20 of the worst tattoos ever

—and keep in mind that it could be much, much worse:

Microsoft Tattoo - sounds like an ill-conceived, overpriced tattoo design program included as part of Microsoft Bob.
