New State Fair Treat: Fried Coke

Oh, yeah! Fried Coke, my friends. Invented by Abel Gonzales, it consists of Coke-flavored batter, deep fried, drizzled with Coke fountain syrup, topped with whipped-cream, cinnamon, sugar, and a cherry. How freakin' awesome is this? Truely, we live in amazing times.

Borat Shut Out of White House

Via Reuters:

Secret Service agents turned away British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, in character as the boorish, anti-Semitic journalist, when he tried to invite "Premier George Walter Bush" to a screening of his upcoming movie, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. BEST MOVIE TITLE EVER!!!

Also invited to the screening: O.J. Simpson, "Mel Gibsons" and other "American dignitaries."

Cohen's stunt was timed to coincide with an official visit by Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, who is scheduled to meet with Bush on Friday.

Borat denounced an official Kazakh publicity campaign running in U.S. magazines as "disgusting fabrications" orchestrated by neighboring Uzbekistan.

"If there is one more item of Uzbek propaganda claiming that we do not drink fermented horse urine, give death penalty for baking bagels, or export over 300 tonnes of human pubis per year, then we will be left with no alternative but to commence bombardment of their cities with our catapults," Borat said.

I love Borat.

UPDATE: Now with video!

Iron Man Has Been Chosen!!!

They've chosen who is going to play Tony Stark in the upcoming Iron Man movie, and it's freakin' PERFECT.


Robert Downey Jr.

That's right.


I can’t even express how much I love that choice. First of all, congratulations to Paramount and Marvel for having the nerve to pin their franchise on Downey.

And when the franchise finally gets into some of Tony Stark’s darkest hours, when he faces down his own demons in the second film or the third, can you imagine how much soul Downey can bring to it? If handled right, that’s some of the most potent dramatic material in any Marvel movie, and now they’ve got the right actor to make it all work.

300 Trailer

HOLY CRAP! This looks SOOOO cool! This is the 'true' story of the Battle of Thermopylea, as told in Fank Miller's graphic novel The 300. 300 Spartans and 700 Thespians stood against 2,641,610 Persians (by some counts). It's a heck of a tale, and this movie should be the shiznit.

UPDATE: A video that actually works. Sorry about that...

The "Religion of Peace" Continues Being "Peaceful"

The Face of the Religion of Peace

So by now you know that the Pope has stepped in it. He quotes a predecessor from the middle ages, mentioning Islam while trying to make the point that violence is incompatible with the nature of God. What does the "Religion of Peace" do?

They respond by" peacefully" shooting a nun volunteering at a hospital in Somalia and setting crap on fire.

Honestly, is anyone surprised? Someone farts in the same room as the Koran and Muslims go ape $*#@ crazy with "peace". I grow weary of the manufactured"peace" at the slightest perceived offense to "Muslim sensibilities". What sensibilities? Every freakin' thing is an excuse to burn stuff and chop off people's heads, with very sharp implements of "peace". Anyone still think the West can resolve our differences with the Middle East through rational dialogue?

If we can't even speak openly and honestly to each other without Muslims thowing a temper tantrum like the spoiled rotten children of the world that they are, then what hope is there for rational conversation between the two cultures? Why should non-Muslims be forced to walk on egg shells and show all deference to Muslims when they consistently harass and persecute non-Muslims living among them?

Funk dat noise.

Muslims have about 300 more years of growth ahead of them before they're ready to participate in the affairs of the rest of the world.

Borat Movie Trailer

If you haven't seen any of Sacha Cohen's Borat, get yerself to youtube and watch. The man is a genius. In fact, the Kazakhstani government is so annoyed at him, that thier prime minister (or whatever) is on his way to the US to complain to President Bush. Of course, the problem is Cohen is British, the movie was filmed in Romania, and it premeired in Canada, so I'm not sure what Bush is supposed to do about it.

RIP, Steve Irwin

Sad news today, Croc' Hunter Steve Irwin has died.

He was killed while filming some footage for a documentary.

Irwin was shooting a documentary on dangerous marine life, in shallow water at Bat Reef, about 32 nautical-miles offshore, at about 11am (AEST).

Footage of the attack shows Irwin swimming above a 2.5m stingray before it turns on him and sends a poisonous barb through his heart.

Irwin was pulled from the water by a cameraman and a crewman, put on an inflatable tender and taken to a support boat about 500m away.

A sad day, indeed.
