more iProducts

In an earlier post, I highlighted new iPea. Well, there is apparently no end to the Apple spoofs. is "the top creative competition and photoshop contest site on the web." (as in "a picture is worth a thousand words") Currently, they are sponsoring a contest to create Apple's Next Product. Check out the entries so far!

While you're at it, you can check out my favorite section of the website: chimeras.
Chimera: chi·me·ra [ki-meer-uh, kahy-] –noun, plural -ras.
an organism composed of two or more genetically distinct tissues, as an organism that is partly male and partly female, or an artificially produced individual having tissues of several species.

palindromes - wierd al style!

A few years ago, I found this book, and I thoroughly enjoyed its contents. A few years later, someone introduced me to the song "Bob" by Wierd Al. Just yesterday, a student sent me a link to the music video! Once again, Wierd Al is clever, weaving together palindromes to create one wacky song!
Palindrome: A word, phrase, or sentence that reads the same backward or forward.

Two of my favorite palindromes are:

drowsy sword, and

oozy rat in a sanitary zoo,

Although after visiting this site, I think I might have a new favorite!

the smallest ipod yet

Apple keeps coming out with smaller and more efficient iPods. However, this is the best one yet! Read all about the iPod Pea! (If that isn't enough to amuse you, check out the video for the iPod Flea.) It just doesn't get any more amusing than this.

SNL's attempt was not quite as funny.

banana bunker

There is a market for everything. Including a protective case for your banana.

Uh oh. Competition. Check out the Banana Guard. It's good to have choices.
