My day started off with the clock-radio playing NPR, with Frank Deford talking about lawsuits against teams like the Detroit Lions for defaming the good names of actual lions by being so bad. I then managed to drop a decent one on my co-workers with a fake techie e-mail (for those who care, I said I was giving up and installing the new version of Exchange for Solaris. It's kind of an inside joke...) The News and Observer got into the act with a sports blog entry about how the Chapel Hill police were regulating the sale of light blue paint in order to prevent fans from defacing too much (and yes, I had to try to be the smart ass in the comments).
Gary Kueber over at Endangered Durham goes for the comedy-at-the-extremes approach and takes on some of his favorite punching bags, including NIS, the Human Services parking lot, DOT, and a few new ones, including electronic billboards. (And also ribs some fellow bloggers.)
Google's offering this year is, to my eye, highly disappointing compared to past efforts (particularly the sublime Google Romance) and features a supposed new artificial intelligence, which appears to be some kind of split parody between the Terminator franchise and bad personal websites.
That's all I've found so far. Anyone else find anything good?
