It's been a while since I've read the Onion, but I think I just broke something laughing.

Among my favorites: Potato-Faced Youngster Lauded For Memorizing Primitive 26-Character Alphabet and Grandfather Disrespected In Own Home. The Yao Ming article gets massive bonus points for even referencing a poem by Cao Cao.

Gundam cartoon academy to turn science fiction into reality in Japan

One aeronautics expert involved in the project said that, as a serious scientist, he can see clearly which parts of Gundam are technically feasible and which are not.

Nuclear-powered thermal rockets and spherical helper robots should be pursued, he said.


THIS JUST IN: JAPANESE CIRCUMVENT MILITARY RESTRICTIONS BY CREATING ARMY OF HAROS. NEWS AT ELEVEN.

"...I Am Legend?" -Angela, asking some question or other
"What? I Am Lenin?" -Ireny
"...in Soviet Russia, brains eat YOU!" -Ireny

So yeah. Book of Secrets was, as expected, ridiculous. It was so ridiculous it was hysterical (some obscure ancestor of mine was allegedly involved in the Lincoln assassination! CLEARLY WE MUST GO ON A TREASURE HUNT, ALTHOUGH HOW THIS WILL CLEAR HIS NAME ESCAPES ME ENTIRELY). I don't think five minutes went by during that movie without me finding something funny about it. And the history - or should I say the lack thereof - would have hurt my soul so much if I weren't already laughing. I really don't want to go into detail because I would still be sitting here next week, but...yeah. It's great; if you need a laugh, or if you're desperate enough (like me) to sit through a two-hour movie just to see approximately five seconds of men in Union uniforms at the very beginning, go see it.

([livejournal.com profile] wonk579288 was right, the best part was definitely the random French cops on bikes - mostly because...yeah. Artbunnies there. And Helen Mirren was also great. BEN'S MUM IS THE QUEEN LOL.)

I'm sorry, but there's no way you can be an interesting protagonist when the antagonist is much hotter and a better actor than you.

(Yes, I am watching National Treasure again! How did you know?)

And I'm going to see Book of Secrets tomorrow with [livejournal.com profile] arcticfox547 and [livejournal.com profile] sunnydayz36. I hope it's at least as entertaining as I initially thought it would be. I also hope we don't get kicked out of the theatre for snarking too loudly.

You have to say one thing about the PPC: We're quick when it comes to responding. We've got a Narnia Division up and running to combat the Sues that are already appearing as a result of the movie (one of them is the spawn of Professor Kirke and Jadis, however that works out *gags*), and Christopher Robin is now safely installed in a room in FicPsych (with a complimentary portal-generator to the Hundred-Acre Woods).

xD I <3 the PPC.

Also, I need to plug this link: http://web.archive.org/web/20041024001257/home.uchicago.edu/~rascalzo/arch/palace/library/contents.html

It's amazing. I <3 it.

(I also <3 Pathy's new Wingbound chapter. It's not all that hard to figure out why. x3)
