Saving Up for a Apple Wheel?

Somewhere, someone out there is saving up for an apple wheel, or asking the sales rep for one at the local best buy, or asking their grandmother for one for their birthday, who’s insisting that the local sales rep find them one because their grandson/granddaughter simply must have one, and the Onion should be ashamed of themselves.

Extreme Newscasting

My first ‘real’ job in high school was as a weekend photog for WAGM television in northern Maine, so I could just imagine the backstory to the video above – “Hey, I’ve got an idea…”

Impressively, not only does our intrepid reporter retain his senses, he has the presence of mind to recover the microphone and finish it out before collapsing.

Totally Looks Like

From the folks who brought us icanhascheezburger comes the spin off totallylookslike. I am not proud of the time I’ve just spent looking through the site and I will never ever get that time back, but if I traveled back in time to 30 minutes ago, could I look away, knowing what I do now? No, I could not.

Homosexual eases into 100 final at Olympic trials

Ed Brayton via Tom Kirkendall notes that American Family Association has a policy at its new outlet, OneNewsNow, never to use the word “gay” but to replace it with “homosexual” – which is all well and good until someone named Tyson Gay turns in a record time in the US Olympic qualifying rounds. The result is an epic poem to double-entendre – “Homosexual eases into 100 final at Olympic trials”

Tyson Homosexual easily won his semifinal for the 100 meters at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials and seemed to save something for the final later Sunday.

His wind-aided 9.85 seconds was a fairly cut-and-dry performance compared to what happened a day earlier. On Saturday, Homosexual misjudged the finish in his opening heat and had to scramble to finish fourth, then in his quarterfinal a couple of hours later, ran 9.77 to break the American record that had stood since 1999.

One of the men who talked about challenging Homosexual in the 100, his former Arkansas teammate Wallace Spearmon, failed to make it to the final by the slimmest of margins. The top four runners advance from each semifinal, and Spearmon finished fifth in his-all of .001 behind Michael Rodgers.

Spearmon, twice a medalist at world championships in the 200, was last out of the blocks and managed to make up a lot of ground, but it wasn’t quite enough. “Aim to win. Got fifth. Feelings are hurt,” Spearmon said. “I’ll make the team in the 200. That’s about it.”

Homosexual didn’t get off to a particularly strong start in the first semifinal, but by the halfway mark he had established a comfortable lead. He slowed somewhat over the final 10 meters-nothing like the way-too-soon complete shutdown that almost cost him Saturday.

Asked how he felt, Homosexual said: “A little fatigued.”
