Congress Day?

Last Monday was President’s Day here in the United States and on that day the folks at The Laughing Spoon postulated that “we don’t have a special ‘Congress Day’ but if we did…”

You’ve Heard Of A Three Dog Night? Here’s A Three Video Day.

In honor of the US Men’s and Women’s Curling teams being out of Olympic medal contention (and the women finishing last in the competition) there is always this vidoe of “Cut Curling.”

NOTE: No cats are harmed in this video and to us, this is “humorously cute.”

Mike Masse is getting a lot of notice on the internet these days. Masse and his friends, including his bass playing buddy Jeff Hall do amazing covers of songs. These YouTube videos (including many others) were recorded at a pizza joint in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The two songs we are presenting here show Masse’s range. The Toto song “Africa” done acoustically is incredibly a stretch musically, but then to turn around and do “S.O.S.” by the Swedish group ABBA?

Student Ricrolls Physics Teacher.

This is great; a Ricroll in a physics paper. (Also a case where someone had way too much time on their hands.)


If you aren’t aware what “ricrolling” is you can get a definition here and here.

What A Difference The Letter “S” And An Apostrophe Make.

As we often do, we cruised by to see what was happening in the world of sports and entertainment. In the headline box we scanned this (minus the yellow):


“How did a musket from the 1700 and 1800′s get arrested?” we wondered.

We then realized that the article was on Devone Bess of the Cleveland Browns football team.


We think we need to slow down from reading all of the Revolutionary War books that we have been going through lately.

It’s Not CSI!

Scream-ROH Our graphics guy here at Raised on Hoecakes sent us this gem from a website called “Clients From Hell,” which is a site devoted to relaying quick stories on graphic clients that can best be described as “difficult.”

One graphic artist was apparently asked by a client:

Why is it that the people on CSI can enhance an image and cut out the crap in seconds WHILE SOLVING A MURDER, and you need almost an HOUR to do it!?”

Why indeed.
