Joba Celebration

(no subject)

spatialrift47 on the most important unofficial holiday of the American year, Super Bowl Sunday:


And the commercials! Oh, the commercials. They definitely took a turn for the surreal this year, didn't they? And quite a few retro references. Sometimes both in the same commercial, for example CGI lizards dancing Thriller. Or Pepsi doing a Night at the Roxbury reference ten years too late. Or the Budweiser showing us what Rocky Balboa would look like if he were a Clydesdale. You know, stuff like that. But I have to give props to GoDaddy.com: they know that sex sells, and went with a very straightforward "COME TO OUR WEBSITE AND SEE THIS LADY'S BOOBS."

And then I have to take those props away again. You see, unashamed male that I am, I went to see the aforementioned boobs, and THERE AREN'T ANY. THE BOOBS ARE A LIE. In the hypothetical scenario wherein I someday need to register a hypothetical domain name, GoDaddy just lost my hypothetical business and my hypothetical money. (Hey - I'm a grad student. All of my money is hypothetical.)

zmarlowe takes us on a visit to Skynet...

Lackey: Hmm. Connor's mother has hidden herself fairly well--ah ha! Here's a police record from his early teens--
Skynet: A TEENAGER? DAMMIT, CAN'T WE JUST KILL HIM AS A BABY?
Lackey: This is the only record I can find. You did erase most of the old data when you downloaded the first season of "Mad About You."
Skynet: CURSE YOU BITTORRENT.

Context is sending laughter through time to destroy us all.
