What's for breakfast?

Got my bowl.
Got my spoon.
Got my cereal (so many choices... some of these look kinda stale).
Maybe I'll skip the milk this time...

(thanks to Michael for the cereal archives link!)

Hey, don't bogart those Beggin' Strips!

Steve is a contributor to The Sneeze, where he writes a little something he likes to call Steve, Don't Eat That!

Steve puts things down his gullet that Fear Factor contestants refuse to try. Pickled pork rinds, for example. No, not the crunchy, deep-fried heart-healthy kind of pork rinds. I said pickled. Pickled. Pork. Rinds. And potted meat food product. And a BLT sammich using Beggin' Strips dog snacks. Oh, the humanity.

PS. The rest of The Sneeze is eye-wateringly funny on a regular basis as well. You can check out The Best Of, or the complete archives.

Here's the poop for all you would-be cheat... er... I mean winners.

It's still in the early development stages, but after being a cash cow for Fox for the past 15 years, it looks like a Simpsons movie is finally being made. Don't get in line for tickets yet, though, as the release isn't planned until either summer or Christmas of 2006.

"Excuse me while I reboot my son"

Jon Blake Cusack, from Holland, Michigan, told reporters that the practice of adding "Junior" and "II" after a boy's name were too common. That's why he named his newborn son Jon Blake Cusack 2.0. Looks like this is going to need an update.

Smiling Faces (Sometimes, Sometimes Not)

Don't let the handshake and the smile fool ya
Take my advice I'm only tryin' to school ya.

Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes
They don't tell the truth, uh
Smiling faces, smiling faces tell lies
And I got proof.
"Smiling Faces Sometimes" - The Undisputed Truth

Can you tell which are genuine smiles and which are fake? You might not do as well as you think.

I scored a pretty anemic 13 out of 20 correct.

Taking one for the team

It's official. The fearless young men of are back. Whattaya mean, what do they do? They review bad candy. No, not bad candy as in "I had a Snickers bar once and the chocolate was kind of stale and crumbly." No. I mean Really. Bad. Candy. For the offendable, be forewarned, their reviews have language that's a little, well, salty.
