The Eagle Fire Garfield Randomizer

Another go at Garfield. Even Rick Astley hasn’t been ripped on this much in the past month as Garfield.

…so this guy noticed that Garfield comics make just as much sense if you throw random panels together, and sometimes are actually pretty funny. He got a cease and desist letter. So he made the code available for people who wanted to try it for themselves. Here we go!

What I Learned in Jail Last Night

From Gawker:

As I was led through the subway station in handcuffs Tuesday night, a young girl called after me, “Oooh, undercover got you, didn’t they? What you did, ma?” Good question! All I did was drink a beer from a paper bag while waiting for the F train. Trashy habit, and technically illegal, but who cares, right? In fact, the NYPD cares very much. What followed was twenty-four hours in two jails, hours in handcuffs, and eventual dismissal in that three-ring circus known as Night Court. Everything I need to know about life, I learned in the female prisoner holding pen in the Tombs.

After taking away my beer, the cute-but-weathered strawberry-blonde lady cop who arrested me put me in a van with two other quality-of-life violators: an old homeless Polish man named Bogden, and a seventeen-year-old black kid named Kevia. Both were arrested for “outstretch”: taking up more than one seat on the subway, or lying down on the seats.

You can be put in jail for taking up more than one seat in a New York subway???

Swiss Army Bass

I object to them using the term “Swiss Army” to describe it when there isn’t a pair of little scissors…. Or a corkscrew!

Yup-that’s right. It’s a bass guitar with a midi keyboard mounted on it. Yes, the two are played simultaneously. The bass is played with the left hand alone by means of a guitar technique known as “hammer-ons” while the keyboard (which emulates a distorted slide guitar most of the time. among other things) is played with the right hand. This instrument has a weight equivalent to that of a small motorcycle, and as you might imagine, requires years of time and patience to “master”.

You can just close Cynical-C after this. I’m not going to find anything better than this today.
