  1. @For your Jurassic appetite. Wendy’s Stops Rogue Restaurant from Selling 9-Patty ‘T-Rex’ Burger

    Anyone who eats something like that obviously doesn’t care too much about their own body or health. By all means, enjoy a regular burger or two, or three depending on your hunger levels but that. wow.. Wrong on so many levels.

  2. Superman did team up w/ Santa!!

    In fact, I just sold that exact comic the other day in my online store ..it was DC COMICS PRESENTS #67 from 1984. Superman & Santa Claus take on Toy Man.

    I can’t believe Comics Alliance messed up on that.

  3. I think the future of mistranslations is that we’re just going to be way more cavalier about mistranslations. Re-packaging a product for overseas isn’t the huge project it used to be. Heck, we’re starting to get cavalier about “mistranslations” from English to English thanks to auto-corrected text.

  4. I laughed my arse off over those scaredy dog pictures!! I think #10 is my favorite – 😆 !!

    Just saw a clip of that Sandra Bullock movie, The Heat, that you mentioned a few entries back. In the clip there’s this cop with albinism, and I guess they mistake him for a criminal, and he says something to the effect of, ‘What? Because I’m an albino I have to be the bad guy?’ – a nice jab at the evil albino stereotype. The actor is Dan Bakkedahl (I believe), who does not have albinism, but from the quick clip it looks like the make-up department did a good job making him look authentic. I wonder if I can hire them to work a little magic on Mr. Das… 😉 (Although he really doesn’t need much work – we were at an outdoor party last Sunday and I noticed that hubby’s legs were the same color as the sun-bleached concrete. 😛 )


  5. The charities info is so disturbing. It’s a shame how many people donate to scam charities too without doing a little research first to find out if that money will really reach the people who need it. So much money wasted that could have gone to productive charities who actually help people.

  6. David Caruso as Archie? *shudders*. Then again, David Caruso? *shudders*

    What’s sad is that I mentioned the “All your base…” thing to a co-op student at work recently, and they had no idea what I was talking about. I’m officially old.

  7. I used to work at Wendy’s a long time ago. So long ago, we were the first Wendy’s franchise to open in Utah. Anyhoo, part of clean up was to empty and clean the Frosty machine. Can’t recall if we did that nightly or once a week… but there came a time at the end of the day when the leftover Frosty stuff was removed. Which meant Frosties for all the night crew. So the pic of the guy pouring Frosty straight into his mouth? Yeah, seen that more than once after hours.

    I do know we were the cleanest fast food place in the state back then. We cleaned constantly. Pull three sodas? Swipe down the splashplate with the other hand. And we were fast, the menu was simple then, we could have hot orders up by the time the customer was getting their change. I still have my Hot N Juicy pins tucked away somewhere. I know, being proud of an old fast food job is weird, but we were the first locally, and we really did set and meet some high standards.

  8. I’m back! Did anyone miss me? The Wifi was hard to come by and I’m way behind reading all of your wonderful posts. I’ll catch up soon.

    JeffW & Ponytail: The cheesecake I brought to Florida was fantastic! I didn’t notice any texture difference from the freezing at all.

    I love the beach. Wearing a bathing suit and no shoes for a week is so relaxing.

    Thank you for the links Mr. M., the dog picture links had me laughing out loud.

  9. @ DP – I totally read your ‘mistranslations’ as ‘manservants’ – TWICE! I either need new contacts, help around the house, or…something. 😛


  10. @ Line Noise: I saw that article about eyeball licking the other day and had the exact same thought as you: “Hmmm… Joe’s conjunctivitis is looking a little fishy now.”

  11. Noooo! They can’t make an Archie film; Ron Howard is way too old now. I have fond memories of buying Archie while my dad bought his super hero comix. I loathed Veronica and rooted for Betty.
