Things We Saw Today: Something Better Than a Cat

Look, we have nothing against cats. But when we see a really ambitious and tiny turtle trying to eat something as big as itself … well, show us a cat trying to do that. (at Diary of a Death Starlette)

Think Geek is selling this enlightening and not-at-all-traumatic book about how when your mom turns into a zombie, it is your moral obligation to kill her (again). (via io9)

  • Nostalgia Time: Remember Full House, the ABC sitcom about a delightfully blended family living in San Francisco, made up of a widower, his sexily Greek brother-in-law, his goofy best friend, and his three blonde, blue-eyed daughters? Well, if you’re wondering how a Greek woman (the daughters’ mother and sister of the aforementioned sexy Greek man — that was John Stamos) could defy the odds and give birth to three children bearing none of the dominant traits associated with people boasting Greek heritage, then you’re not the only one who is suspicious.

      The Superman sign might not make much sense (is the gum Pink Kryptonite flavor?), but I’ll certainly never forget it.

      I’ve always had a great love for small turtles trying to eat big red things, so I was delighted by your picture of the little guy going at the strawberry.

      For anyone who likes this sort of thing, here’s a youtube video of a similarly sized turtle trying to eat a cherry tomato. It’s been one of my favorites for quite some time now:
