The Week in Pictures LXX

Random Friday Thoughts:

And so we come the the end of the craziest week in recent memory. I had hoped things would slow down, but that wasn't to be. I'm exhausted and badly in need of a drink.

Of course, that could have something to do with the holiday party that I attended up in Stamford yesterday. I realize that I criticized that city recently, but it is actually much nicer when you've been drinking. This company throws more holiday parties than anyplace else in the world.

Our new contract recruiter has the strangest shaped head. It looks like portion from the top to the cheekbones was put in a vice - forcing any fat to migrate southwards towards his cheeks. Looking at him is like watching an anorexic chipmunk try to eat a grapefruit whole.

Anyway, let's move on to an abbreviated version of the WiP:


The Vatican is reportedly re-thinking it's new "first to touch the dead pope" method of choosing the papal successor.


Worst. Sinus. Infection. Ever.


A farmer is fighting to evict a family of three that has taken up residence in a sunflower on his land.


Church & Dwight Co., Inc., the manufacturer of Trojan brand condom, have been contracted by Superman to develop a prophylactic that's strong enough to handle his rod of steel.


In a related story, astronomers have traced the source of a mysterious object that landed in Smallville in the 1930's as having come from a now defunct planet called Krypton.


The star of the hit movie "Happy Feet" will be the subject of a touching television special about his first visit back home after making it big.


Tiny Grand Pianos are the latest must have item for people who enjoy "a little music".


The Fox network has cancelled it's short lived reality series "Butch the Cross-Dressing Dog"


Gratuitous picture of Ciara.


Overly tight speedos are being blamed for the Chinese men's synchronized diving team's poor performance at the Asian Games.


And finally, a gymnast is undergoing treatment for a horrible case of athlete's foot that developed on his head.
