Overnight Open Thread. Ministry of Silly Links, Part XVIII (genghis)

Now with even more randomness and irrelevancy

Vodka-Related Update: From the Seattle Times: Judge Orders Hendrix Vodka Pulled From Shelves, $3.2 Million Settlement.

Item #1: A comparison of Various Economic Models and Economies. From an e-mail sent in by a listener to the host of “Ye Olde Tyme Dori Monson Talkie Show,” we have Economics Made Easy, using two cows to illustrate the differences. Looks like it’s one of those e-mail jokes that’s probably circled the globe on the intertubes at least 30 times, so probably everyone but me has seen it. Still seems heh-worthy though. An example or two:

You have two cows.
You have some vodka.
You count them and learn you have five cows.
You have some more vodka.
You count them again and learn you have 42 cows.
The Mafia shows up and takes over however many cows you really have..”

You have two cows.
Your neighbor has none.

Item #2: College Football News’ annual “All-Name” Teams Selection. Yes, football season has passed us by, but is that gonna’ stop us from talking about it? No, I say! A thousand times no! Pete Fiutak (the Ace of sportswriting) at CFN has compiled his annual list of The coolest new names in college football. 1st Team, 2nd Team etc., by position. (school recruited by follows the names) For instance:

” QB - Shavodrick Beaver, Tulsa” (my nominee for the “Name Heisman”, but Fiu picked someone else, -ed.)

“DL - Mister Cobble, Kentucky”

And mercifully,

Item #3: Still More “Demotivational Posters.” Always a crowd-pleaser, the delightfully named Despair, Inc. has some pretty good ones, such as:

I ran across the site looking for a “demotivational” stimulus poster. There are also a huge number of them over at Motifake, but the quality is quite a bit more hit and miss there.
