Midday Overnight Open Thread - Bad Timing Edition [Rajiv Vindaloo]

BREAKING: Cha-Ching! Maffei concedes; NY-25 another pickup for the Republicans! (Edit: The newspaper has since rewritten the article with a more "nuanced" narrative. Maffei is behind, but he can still request a recount.) (h/t Bomber© in the comments.)

So there I was, all set to compose and post my first awesomeish weekday MOOT, but then Comcast was all like

and I was stuck all day peering through the window instead of attending the party. Story of my life, let me tell you. I mean, I love you guys, but not enough to hand-code 175 lines of HTML on an iPhone.

Anyway, speaking of great timing: The elections are over, the thrill is gone. Thanksgiving is still two days away, and you're stuck reading this. In short, you must be bored. So hey, why not pay a visit the beautiful Korean DMZ? South Korea's Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has introduced new mascots who would love for you to stop by and and engage in some "ecological tourism", which I believe is PR-speak for "there's not much there; hope you like plants."

They introduced these cute little critters to the world ... yesterday.

Left to right: Didi, Jiji and Mimi the happy DMZ butterfly family. Not pictured: Uhoh the Stuxnet-infected centrifuge.

Says the Yonhap News Agency:

The butterflies, named Didi (dad), Mimi (mom) and Jiji (their child) and with blue, pink and green wings, respectively, symbolize a family from an alien planet making their visit to Earth to find its natural charms.

Above: Natural charms.

More fun after the jump than if Don Rickles was your TSA agent.

I was gonna call this the MONT, but eman correctly recognized that MOOT makes more sense. So welcome to the MOOT.

Why? The question is moot!

(Looks like you may be seeing a big blank spot here if you're using a mobile browser. Just pretend the cat is lost in the negative space.)

Get three free MP3s from Amazon

Click the link above, hit "enter your code" and punch in GET3MP3S. You have to use them by the end of the day November 29 or they go bye-bye. Don't say I never did anything for you.

Puppet Gets a DUI

Warren the Ape was the most hilarious show on television. Unfortunately, it was also greenlighted by MTV of all channels, which was about as intelligent a move as casting Betty White to play Phil Spector. Fourteen-year-old girls didn't get it and didn't want to get it. Thus it almost certainly will not be renewed, and I'm pissed off. You can still watch the episodes on MTV.com, for now. I suggest you give them a try.

Live From the MSNBC Newsroom

Okay, allegedly it's an animation by Nathan Lane Love. But admit it, doesn't that look just like Keith Olbermann by the time he gets to the end of a Speshul Koment?

I'm pretty sure the little hats are a metaphor for Ed Schultz's unstructured I'm-gonna-torch-this-place id.

Or Else It's a Metaphor for Charles Nelson Reilly.

...and that's why all the hippies eventually switched to cocaine by the late '70s, Billy.

Bacon: Your One True Friend

It's never too early to teach your children the joys of fried pork products. Get yours soon before it's banned in Britain!

Somewhere, somebody is offended.

Today's MOOT brought to you by the instrument what am for you.
