Dec 3rd 2010 By: Andy Khouri The whimsical speech of Jedi Master Yoda may have progressed from endearingly eccentric to Jar-Jarringly annoying in recent years and in recent films, but the 900-year-old's memorable dialogue and that of other characters from the Star Wars saga has been somewhat redeemed by cartoonist Adam Watson with some inspiration from an unlikely source: Dr. Seuss , who really should have created a book about something called a Nerfherder. Acting on that anarchic artist impulse that we love so much about the Internet, Watson reimagined some famous Star Wars scenes and characters in the style of the legendary children's author, going so far as to create all-new rhymes in the Seussian tradition.
Last week, Pokemon Black and White were finally released in America as the two latest installments of the long-running video game franchise. It's something I've been looking forward to since it was announced, to the point where I've been reading through the Pokedex -- the official in-game database that describes all 649 Pokemon -- and in doing so, I've discovered something: For a game made for children about adorable monsters, there's a lot of really disturbing stuff in Pokemon . Okay, okay, admittedly: It's a game made for children about adorable monsters who are sent out to fight each other for the enjoyment of their owners like gladiators battling at the pleasure of a ten year-old Caligula. But it's one thing to have Mewtwo listed as being the product of "years of horrific gene splicing" ( Pokemon Red ), and quite another to have multiple creatures whose sole purpose is to drag children kicking and screaming through the gates of Hell, and that's not an exaggeration .

When you were in school, what did you do when you didn’t know the answer to a test question? did you leave it blank? Did you take a guess? Or did you fill in something extremely hilarious that you knew to be wrong?
Disclaimer: I have no regard whatsoever for my grammar in this post. Do not attack my grammar as opposed to my comment because as a former debater that will just piss me off and make you look stupid. Firstly, I’d like to say that some of the people are right, youth now seem not to give two shits about education and yes the education system in the US have drastically dropped in efficiency. But let’s be real, this isn’t anything new, there is a general culture of anti-intellectualism in our country among ALL US citizens, not just the youth. Of course, it would be a sweeping generalization to say that most of the people in our country are unintelligent fucks, but let’s not criticize to the youth while half the politicians are hanging on to their common sense by a string.
Tablet full of crude jokes and riddles about beer is found - dating from the time of the biblical ExodusBy Rob Waugh UPDATED: 16:52 GMT, 27 January 2012 Crude jokes, beer and a hearty disregard for politicians were part of life in ancient Mesopotamia - 3,500 years ago. A newly translated tablet from the area of present-day Iraq runs through a series of riddles which show that even in 1,500BC, people liked a puzzle. Modern audiences, though, should not expect to have their sides split - or indeed to solve any of the riddles, which are rather tricky (the riddles and their solutions are below). Cuneiform script as seen in a clay tablet, found at Tell-El-Amarna, Egypt: The location of the tablet of riddles is not known, and the study authors worked from a transcription from 1976. The museum it was in was looted during the 2003 Iraq war
It's no secret that Photoshopping images of models and celebrities is a regular and controversial part of the way that the advertising industry works. And while some companies, like Dove, are working to debunk the damaging and physically-impossible standards for the human body that the industry perpetuates, filmmaker Jesse Rosten has a different idea. Why not just turn that Photoshop brand into a spinoff line of cosmetics and prey on women's insecurities that way?
