The fat, bald, alien puss is not impressed.

ATOMIC TOURISTS:  watching+the+world+die+around+us

Atomic Overlook is a series of photo manipulations by artist Clay Lipsky. You can peep the series over here. Thenanigans  can't help but see a sad commentary on how we are all standing by as the world collapses around us. But maybe that just means it's time to up the meds.

HIGH HOPES: I've said it before and I will say it again: ants - one day this will all be theirs.

SWORD STORIES*: There are two kinds of people in this world. People who don't own swords and those who do. These are their stories. Here's the latest.

THE FAT, BALD ALIEN PUSS IS NOT IMPRESSED.

I SEE DUMB PEOPLE: It's not just that this story is a great example of the dumbing of America. No, it's the fact that the OTHER knucklehead involved here has one of the most spectacularly appropriate names ever. I SAID EVER.

THEN THERE'S THIS: Nobody ever said that professional athletes were Rhodes Scholars. Wow. Just wow.

OUT OF THE FRYING PAN  INTO THE FIRE: Worst road trip ever. Sadly, no word on the flying squirrel or Boo Boo.

REVENGE IS A DISH BEST SERVED PINK (warning: Danish F-bombs)

See what happens when a Danish teenager gets his comeuppance for messing with his older brother's Facebook page.

MEOW TIMES INFINITY: Your kitteh might just be a psycho. Mr. Blogfood is pretty sure that this explains what was up with his once-favorite furball Joe Tucker.

BAWITDABA DA BANG A DANG DIGGY DIGGY DIGGY SAID THE BOOGY SAID UP JUMP THE BOOGY: There are two famous loud mouthed self proclaimed bad ass hard rockin' musicians from the Motor City. One of them is a complete jagweed. And the other? Well, you'll never hear thenanigans bag on Kid Rock. Here's one reason why. Not listening, mind you.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: This is relevant to thenanignas interests. Also, a huge relief.

TILT SHIFT DRESSAGE:

jump+horsie+jump%21

I'm completely fascinated by tilt shift photography. As you can see above, this effect manages to make real life scenarios appear like models or miniatures. There's a series of photos from the Summer Olympics you can find over here.

PARADE OF ASSHATS: Wow. They are everywhere these days, and they are increasingly unhinged. This guy and this guy and this guy and this guy...sigh.

FOR THE RECORD: While thenanigans is saddened by the loss of this talented director, he completely approves of Mr. Scott's decision. It's a personal choice, one made in defense of dignity. And our government should stay the hell out of it. Always.

* Once upon a time there was the greatest radio show ever. Long live the Pete and Joe show. Thanks for letting me keep one part of it alive.
