Wonder how that chicken got it's hole stretched out enough to lay a round one.
If a boat is a hole in the water you throw money in, do you really want your ship to come in?

There is another picture at the link showing that the round egg next to one of the hen's regular eggs. In diameter it has about the same width as the "bottom" part of a regular egg:

Somebody should make a cartoon of that. And they should be the forest's superheroes, Weasel and Woody, The Super Ws!

Weasel wasn't riding, it was hanging on trying to kill the bird.

When I lived on a chicken farm for a couple of years we'd get oddly shaped eggs all the time. Round ones (not perfectly round), cylindrical, oblong (not normal oblong, longer than that). We'd pick them up, clean them off, say, "How 'bout that?" and eat them. Not once did we ever think of selling one on eBay.

I have been sorely tempted to find a 64 or a 128 and a disc drive and play some old school games.

That's my 64.

I hooked it up to retrieve some documents on floppy and print them out.

There are kits available to create an interface between the Commodore floppy drive and a PC. If I get some free time I may play with that.

She is an aspiring politician.

Apparently a conservative. Taking the Newsmax approach it seems.

I posted that captain joke on my tumblr and it went over all the youngins heads. I can't help my vast taste for music and movies. That was literally the first thing that popped into my head when I saw that pic. :heh:

I like that they're doing that with both male and female superheroes, usually critiques of unrealistic bodies for superheroes ignores the men. However, is it just me, or in things like this, do they often seem to make the characters slightly overweight?

That's not a realistic Captain America, that's Steve Rodgers before they changed him. I guess by realistic they mean no super powers of any kind. Also, they managed to make the original Iron Man even uglier.

And yes, the did make most of the women slightly overweight, but a couple of them did improve over the original.

Also, the site is called bulimia.com. I'd say they could be... biased when it comes to what makes a "realistic body". These characters are superheroes, they could have made them as "realistic" as they wanted, but they should be at least athletic.

What I find intersting is that while they emphasis the female genitalia, the males have none.
