Brain Candy

Today I am tired. I always start out energetic enough, but I have so much to deal with before I even go to work in the morning. By the time I'm finished with work, I'm ready for some good food, some good wine or beer, and something to turn my brain into pudding, because it just can't handle anything else. I suspect that some of you may be like me in this respect, so here are some things to entertain you after a long day at work:

Cracked.com's 7 (thankfully) extinct giant versions of modern animals. I now have the phrase, "Boy, it hasn't been the same since the scorpion lobsters showed up" stuck in my head.

Here is an old IHOP commercial. I've never seen IHOP buildings like these--well, actually, I have--but they're not IHOPs anymore. I only go there when they have stuffed french toast. But this commercial is seriously weird. Thanks to WFMU, where I first saw it. (And speaking of, visit their website to pledge in their annual marathon fundraiser).

Auto Tune the News, #10. You shall build a turtle fence.

Ever hear of the Bayeux Tapestry? An account of the Norman Conquest, dating from around 1077, that is demonstrated through a series of pictures? Well, now you can make your own history using images from the Bayeux Tapestry. (Thanks to Miss Cellania at Mental Floss).

Lastly, no post would be complete without a LOLcat:
