Ring ding dong - ringa ding ding ding dong

I admittedly used to hate talking on the phone - especially when I had to call someone. You never knew who was going to pick up, how to address people, if they were scary, etc. For this reason - and for the many long long long never ending conversations with my mother [which I wouldn't give back for the world but you know...] - I truly appreciate this comic.

Ten Reasons to Avoid Talking on the Phone

Thanks, Nadia!

So who watched the Canada-USA game yesterday?

Yes? No? Doesn't matter - check out this highlight:

Sir, you're missing some teeth...

Sports advertising is SO much better not in the US.

I love this commercial loads. And I like that the pub looks like the one I used to frequent in London.

And I always kind of embarrassingly like Savage Garden. Shhhh don't tell anyone!

Today I was exploring someone's Facebook, and I came across this video. It's supposed to emulate how foreigners hear English - it's all in gibberish, but it does sound convincing at times.

Not only is it interesting from that perspective, but it's also a great video and fun song.

It's Italian, it's from a couple decades ago, and it'll make you want to dance.

Juan Pablo Amigo

Maybe it's because I'm Catholic, but something does not feel right about this video... The lounge music... The pope licking on the Virgin's ladybits... You know, the whole bit. I would also encourage you to check out this woman's other videos at YouTube. They're pretty classic - and trippy.

Hey laaaadies...

Rugby players have the best bodies. Seriously. They're built like fucking houses - but not in a scary sort of way?

Adidas (NZ) realized that and created probably the most genius marketing campaign ever.

Because, really, isn't the jersey swap everyone's favorite part of any game?

Jersey Swap

A friend does bring up a good point, though:
"i guess it's supposed to attract the ladies/gays??? to buy jerseys...?"
Alright, maybe 'genius' wasn't exactly the word I was looking for earlier.

Thanks, Xavie!
