Far Side Reenactments in Real Life

I've always loved Gary Larson's twisted sense of humor and several of his far Side books are in my permanent collection. I recently found a Flickr collection of real world re-enactments of some classic Far Side cartoons HERE.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Move Over, Eric Clapton!

This 8-year old Japanese kid can play a mean streak (but he still can't sing yet!). And he sure doesn't need a copy of Guitar Hero. Prodigy!

Something for those with ADHD

From YouTube, titled 40 Inspirational Speeches in 2 Minutes. For movie fanatics - How many movies can you identify? Here's the entire transcript:
Shame on you. This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you're going to let it be the worst. And I guarantee a week won't go by in your life you won't regret walking out, letting them get the best of you. Well, I'm not going home. We've come too far! And I'm going to stay right here and fight for this lost cause. A day may come when the courage of men fails... but it is not THIS day. The line must be drawn HERE. This far, no further! I'm not saying it's going to be easy. You're going to work harder than you ever worked before. But that's fine, we'll just get tougher with it! If a person grits his teeth and shows real determination, failure is not an option. That's how winning is done! Believe me when I say we can break this army here, and win just one for the Gipper. But I say to you what every warrior has known since the beginning of time: you've got to get mad. I mean plum mad dog mean. If you would be free men, then you must fight to fulfill that promise! Let us cut out their living guts one inch at a time, and they will know what we can do! Let no man forget how menacing we are. We are lions! You're like a big bear, man! This is YOUR time! Seize the day, never surrender, victory or death... that's the Chicago Way! Who's with me? Clap! Clap! Don't let Tink die! Clap! Alright! Let's fly! And gentlemen in England now abed shall know my name is the Lord when I tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take our Independence Day!

Dr. Seuss as a Tech Writer

From Grandchild's Guide to Using Grandpa's Computer:

Bits Bytes Chips Clocks
Bits in bytes on chips in box.
Bytes with bits and chips with clocks.
Chips in box on ether-docks.

Chips with bits come. Chips with bytes come.
Chips with bits and bytes and clocks come.

Look, sir. Look, sir. read the book, sir.
Let's do tricks with bits and bytes, sir.
Let's do tricks with chips and clocks, sir.
