July 2009


July began with a wish for a Happy

Indy Pendants Day



The best video of the month has to be Conan O'Brien having William Shatner read Sarah Palin's farewell speech as beat poetry, with a bass and bongos. The video has been removed from YouTube, but here it is on NBC's site.


Below is Jimmy Kimmel's promo for the new series "hung."


Below is a tribute to the late actress who played her: "Mrs. Slocombe's Pussy."


Below is the making of an incredible sand painting.


Below is the viral sensation made by a band who had a valuable guitar broken by United Airlines.


Below are amazing 3-D projections on buildings. Some make the buildings look like they're collapsing..

From Tom and Cindy Morse

Only in America ......do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front. Only in America......do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

EVER WONDER: Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed? Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'? Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word? Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'? Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons? Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker? Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes? Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections? Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

Tom and Cindy also sent this photo: The Kids Took Away Their Car Keys.
