Take a Ride On My ‘Broom’, Little Boy… Red Bubble has this shirt up, (Master & Wizard, by Zomboy) and quite frankly, it weirds me out a little– especially given Dumbledore’s known proclivities.

Where’s Waldo Tattoos: far more prolific than I would have imagined. And several of them occupy, in my most humble opinion, rather questionable placements. more after the jump…

One of the more pleasant activities of adolescence is reading educational material that you might not realize is educational at the time; the things that will help you be a better person, and eventually (hopefully), a decent adult.

Thanks Girl. _________________ So– there’s this, from First Second Publishing.

But the guide is coming out. Not a movie… not another book. The GUIDE. Hothead Games (Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness) is producing the book as an app for iProducts. No telling how thorough it will be, but one imagines it will at least cover the basics: Vogons, Disaster Area, the […]
