Just something light

I’m in need of light blogging today, so we’re just going to collect a few light things — some silly, some bizarre, some just... light.

  • In the people with more time than sense category, we have a page of photos of dogs dressed up in lobster outfits. It doesn’t get much more bizarre. [Via BoingBoing.]
  • In the people with no sense whatsoever category, we have an unfortunate incident in which a sister violently attacked her brother because he wanted her to cook with butter instead of margarine. [Again, via BoingBoing.]
  • There’s this New York Times article about a woman in Concord, Massachusetts, who has convinced the town to ban bottled water. I have sympathy: there’s nothing sillier than paying those ridiculous prices for plastic bottles of water. But, what, you’d rather drive people to buy soda instead? OK, yeah: that’s sillier.
  • And then you just have to love the headline on this article from New Scientist. The article’s just so-so, but when you have a headline like On the trail of Tutankhamen’s penis, all is right with the world.

Ha! Had to repost the King Tut item to my facebook page. Everybody's trying to write the headline that will draw people in. So many sites to go to on the net, the headline writers have to behave like carnival barkers.
