Osamalantern

The following image of an awesomely carved pumpkin isn't a e-mail forward or something I found on the Interweb, this is the strangely amazing work of Lukas' younger brother, Natron. The picture's a little dark, but then again, so are the dank caves of Tora Bora.

Here's a much clearer picture of the Osamalantern taken from a bit farther away. And, yeah, I'm totally phoning it in today...

Slack Link of the Day: I honestly can't figure out the causal connection between the problem and the solution, but maybe you can: "A Canadian city under pressure for alleged sexual harassment within its fire department has ordered firefighters to wear only boxer-style underwear." Perhaps all the pressure on their junk from the tighty whities causes male firefighters to lash out at female firefighters?

Slack Video of the Day: I'll do you one better than just a solitary video, I'll grant you access to the be-all, end-all of video vaults: I Love Music Video. This thing is freakin' awesome.

Slack Song of the Day: Aretha Franklin randomly popped onto my iPod this morning, and forgot how much she sounds like chocolate pudding, in a good way. If chocolate pudding could play music it'd be Sly & The Family Stone. But if it could sing, I think it'd sound like Aretha. You tell me, here's Think, The House That Jack Built, and a super cool take on The Beatles' Eleanor Rigby.

Imagine a female coworker stripping off her pants to reveal a sexy pair of panties. Especially in a workplace where they work out all the time, you can see how that might lead to some cat-calls and whatnot. So the boxers rule was for the females to wear, not necessarily for the males.

Of course, the gaping hole in the front of boxers causes a whole new set of problems...

why does whip cream go so freakin well with chocolate pudding?

Kyle, good work, I actually kinda figured that after I posted this, but I still can't see why this would be mandated practice.

And maybe they're buying the kind with buttons in the fly to prevent the new problems you suggested...

Female firefighters can even do an ad for button-fly boxers: "It's annoying as shit for dudes, but rapily protective for us!"
