Daily Dose of Bad Similes — 07/12/06

Posted in bad similes on July 12th, 2006

After months of pent-up emotions like a caffeine-addict trying to kick the habit, Cathy finally let the tears come, at first dripping sporadically like an old clogged percolator, then increasing slowly like a 10-cup coffeemaker with an automatic drip, and eventually pouring out and noisily wailing like a cappuccino maker complete with slurping froth.

This Just In

Posted in blasphemy, viral on July 11th, 2006

a couple of our favorite kings

I’m thinkin’ this is a viral for the Jeeebus-man. From KTRK in Houston:

“Someone covered up a billboard on La Branch at Winbern with a poster featuring a picture of Jesus Christ holding a Budweiser can. The company that leases the billboard believes vandals made the poster at home and then pasted it on top of the ad that’s supposed to be there.

It shows Jesus holding a Budweiser in between the phrases

“Jesus, King of Jews” and “Jesus, King of Beers.”

“I thought that was just crazy,” said commuter Jose Cazares. “It looks professional too.”

Neighbors say the billboard has been up there for a week or more.

For our money, Elvis is still the one, true King. For the Queen? The field is wide open, though we would like to think that Richard Simmons has a commanding lead.

You still can’t trust the press. I did not see the J-word anywhere on that improved billboard. In fact, they totally messed this reporting up. It would have been:

“Jesus, King of Jews” and “Budweiser, King of Beers.”

Dumb-asses.

Updateage:

Although the folks that did this sign improvement did a professional job with the graphics, their job with the copy missed an opportunity for a happy rhyme:

“King of Jews” and “King of Brews

I expect that this will leave the perps scarred for life.

Our Friend, the Spittlebug

Posted in invertebrates, Sputnik on July 11th, 2006

spittlebug with spittle

The other night, Sputnik and I were reading a scientific type journal, namely, the March 2004 issue of click magazine. We were doing pretty well at getting all sleepy until we came across this factoid from the invertebrate world:

“What’s inside that bunch of bubbles? Look closely, and you’ll see a bubble-blowing baby spittlebug. With its sharp beak, a little spittlebug pokes into a plant stem and sucks out the juice, or sap, inside. Some of the sap is the spittlebug’s meal. But the rest bubbles out of its behind until the bubbles cover the bug completely.”

Norwood Matt and Sputnik (together):

“Woah!”

So much for getting all sleepy. We spent the remainder of the evening discussing the finer points of having the surplus from one’s meal bubble out of one’s behind.

In the scientific world, there is some controversy as to whether or not the gas filling the bubbles is mixed into the goo external to the spittlebug (carburetion) or is blended internal to the spittlebug (fuel injection, or farting, if you will). You can read all about it over here where the spittlebug was the bug playmate of the month back in June of 1996.

The spittlebug gives up all this foaming at the south end of its alimentary canal as a rite of passage from teenager to adult. We note that, with humans, this is not always the case.
