Overnight Open Thread

A little more subdued than your average ONT given the date but Iím sure youíll soldier through.

Tonights musical selection is:

Here's some random lameness I had laying around the house...

Tonight's Caturday Content:

Actually, Maet sent this to me earlier (he's always thinking about you little darlings, even when he's not here and despite the nervous tic he's developed from doing the ONT). It's a video that answers that age old question: What would happen if you turned 100 cats loose in an Ikea? I can't top the description on the link:

An English IKEA decided to release 100 live cats overnight. Why? Why would you question such a thing? The video is the most amazing and life-affirming event. Ever. Embrace it. Watch it a thousand times. Watch it ten thousand times."

Truer words were never spoken.

More down there in the basement...


Maybe Randy Newman had a point...

Columbian man is world's shortest at 27"

"BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) - Edward Nino Hernandez is in many ways a typical 24-year-old Colombian male. He loves to dance reggaeton, dreams of owning a car - preferably a Mercedes- and wants to see the world."

"Top on his list of people he would like to meet are Jackie Chan, Sylvester Stallone and former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe."

"What sets Nino (pronounced NEE-nyoh) apart is his size. He is slightly taller than a piece of carry-on luggage and weighs just 22 pounds"

Alas, his title may be short-lived, so to speak:

"Khagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal is expected to take over after he turns 18 on Oct. 14. He measures about 22 inches (56 centimeters) and is currently recognized by Guinness as the shortest living teen."

Lily Tomlin Channels Paul Anka:

Since we opened with Iggy, let's close it out with him shall we? (the version of the song with lyrics)
