Letterman Producer Insults Rosie O'Donnell... and Her "Blog" | Main | NOW & MoveOn "Professional Activists" File False Rape Claim?
April 27, 2005

Punk Wikipedia!

I didn't give a crap about this stupid site -- quite frankly, I still don't know really what the hell it's supposed to be -- but my readers have now made me hate it.

I do that-- I go from "no opinion" to "volcanic black hatred" in 5.3 seconds.

People have noticed that you can punk this stupid-ass geek-circle-jerk, so I think we ought to.

Andrew, he of "roses are red, violets are blue" fame, just added a newly unearthed historical tidbit to the old boring account of the Battle of Hastings (scan down to "External Links" at bottom):

It should also be noted that Indiana Jones took part in the action, riding in an armored canoe pulled by two dragons with wheels for feet; the battle ended when he sliced off the head of Cobra Commander with a garlic press. He later celebrated by swabbing his wang in honey and finding an anthill.

Okay... start punking and post your punks here. I'll see about compiling the best of them on Friday or over the weekend. Not a competition, just an exhibition as they say.

Stephen Sondheim's Bio Updated: See if you can find the subtle insertion.

At about the age of ten, around the time of his parents' divorce, Sondheim became friends with Jimmy Hammerstein. Jimmy's father was the well-known lyricist/playwright Oscar Hammerstein II. Hammerstein taught Sondheim the basics of the musical after the boy came to him with a show he had written for a school performance. Though Hammerstein's reaction was negative, he saw the youngster's potential. As a training exercise, Hammerstein told Sondheim to write four pieces:

A musical based on a good play (which became All That Glitters)
A musical based on a bad play (which became High Tor)
A musical based on an existing novel or short story not previously dramatized (which became Mary Poppins)
An original musical (which became Climb High)

A man can survive in the desert for 10 days by drinking his own urine. Even if you're not in the desert, it makes for a hell of a party trick. Really "breaks the ice"! Try it!

None of these "assignment" musicals was produced professionally. High Tor and Mary Poppins have never been produced at all, because the rights holders for the original works refused to grant permission for a musical to be made.

Did you catch it? That's right-- Hammerstein did not ask Sondheim to compose a musical which would become Climb High.

Don't Bother Update: This game is so old they have a big ass page for collecting up "Bad Jokes and Other Deleted Nonsense."

Damnit... I'm always three years behind the "cool crowd."
