Degree Commercial with Bear Grylls and Real Ursine

October 1, 2012

– – Bear Grylls is a British survival expert and adventurer who hosts the show Man vs. Wild on the Discovery Channel.  He also does a number of commercials for Degree deodorant, one of which shows us a poor subject pacing in a primitive “perpetual motion simulator,” which is really a large wheel set into motion by the movement of the guy walking inside it.  “Feelin’ fresh and dry!,” assures the hapless subject as he moves at a leisurely pace.  The deodorant’s protection is activated by movement, ‘ya see, so to kick things up a notch, the survival expert tosses the wheel walker a trout, and a bear is introduced in pursuit behind him!- –Now things are getting interesting!

Help me!,” screams the subject with the bear in hot pursuit.  “Keep running!” is the only advice he is offered by the survival expert who calmly walks away…

Hair Raising?

June 26, 2008

This is strange, and will probably be loved or hated.–Furry Hairstyles? I am attracted by the foxy one on the left, but would probably try to mate with her hair or run away with it <*blushes*>!  Just the kind of thing to sport at your next furry convention, or use to proclaim your identity to the world!

Meaty Comments?

June 22, 2008

–Jessica Simpson recently sported a T-shirt proclaiming, “Real Girls Love Meat.” Since this is a high-class place, we will not take the obvious low road on this comment, that is, questioning whether Jessica is related to Homer Simpson (“D’oh!“).

PETA took umbrage to Jessica’s shirt…gee, I didn’t know we had any freakin’ umbrages left to take!  Anyhow, they responded with a list of five reasons Why Only Stupid Girls Brag About Eating Meat.

They don’t call it Hollywierd for no reason…

exploding_whale.jpgNot for the queasy!–In November of 1970, a 45-foot, eight-ton carcass of a dead whale washed up on the coast of Oregon. It was rancid and they wanted to get rid of it, so a group of highway engineers decided to blow the sucker up with dynamite! This was on the theory that the dynamited whale parts would then be consumed by seagulls and the problem would be eliminated. So they put half a ton of dynamite next to the dead whale, and set it off…and in the resulting explosion, some rather big chunks of dead whale blubber filled the air, threatening the spectators and causing them to beat a hasty retreat. One big chunk o’ dead whale impacted with the roof of a car with predictable bad results. All in all, it was not a pretty sight…

…and this is not an “urban legend”…this really happened! The event was taped, and the video may still be seen…

Glow Cat!

December 17, 2007

glow-cat.jpg –Korean researchers have produced cloned Turkish Angora cats that glow red in the dark when exposed to ultraviolet light!  They modified a gene in the cat’s skin, inserting a fluorescent red gene. 

It’s been known how to clone a cat for about seven years.  Cats are known to suffer from 250 or so genetic disorders that humans do, too.  By cloning rare animals with certain conditions, researchers could have a population to study the condition and potenial treatments for it.

Glow in the dark cats would also make great spooky gifts, and eliminate need for a night light!  I myself am the product of a secret government experiment gone terribly awry…
