Overnight open thread – Odds n’ Ends…but Mostly Odds (genghis)

Item #1: ABC News (Australia) delivers a story from China about a new sex-themed park in Chongquing. Apparently not everyone’s on board with the idea though:

”A sex theme park in south-west China that exhibits naked human sculptures, giant genitals and boasts a sex technique workshop is stirring up howls of protest, state press said. "Love Land", billed as China's first-ever sex theme park, is slated to open in Chongqing municipality in October, but detractors hope the project will never see the light of day, the China Daily reported.”

However, if it does manage to get built, it looks like they’re going to have some pretty good attractions there. Can Disneyland match this?:
”Besides displays on sex history and techniques, the park boasts a giant rotating statue of the lower portion of a nearly naked woman bent over at the waist.”

Item #2: Over at Cracked.com they have posted 17 More Images You Won’t Believe Aren’t Photoshopped. Trippy stuff as always.

Item #3: Finally, I don’t recall if anyone’s posted this yet, but ABC is rolling out a new animated series by Mike Judge called The Goode Family. Here’s the premise and main characters from the Wikipedia article on it:

”The Goode Family is an obsessively "green" family who live a politically correct lifestyle. The reason why their last name is Goode is because they are always trying to do good. For example, they reuse their shopping bags, drive hybrid cars, recycle, etc. They are also vegans.”
“Gerald Goode (Mike Judge) is an administrator at a community college. He comes from a "long line of over-educated academic liberals". Helen Goode (Nancy Walls) is Gerald’s wife, a local activist. The Goodes have an adopted son, Ubuntu (David Herman) who is from Africa. They also have a biological daughter named Bliss (Linda Cardellini); she often disagrees with her parents, and sometimes pokes some holes in their world views. The family dog, Che, is also vegan: he craves meat and often tries to eat neighborhood animals and pets.”

It’ll of course be hilarious and spot-on as it skewers the Left, so I give it 3 weeks before it’s cancelled. Thanks to Matt Miller for passing this along. Below the fold is additional video and an interview with Mike Judge about the series.
