Blingo, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

Remember how I was blogging about that Blingo thing? Well today I actually won a $10 for iTunes! I was all, what the heck!? So anyway, I guess I read the rules wrong. If you sign up for blingo, I get your prize if you win, but not the other way around. Sorry if I seemed misleading. I was all happy for everyone who signed up as my friend too, but then I was all, oops, they don’t win. You should still sign up though, cause I want your prizes! Yeah!

Chicken Choking 101

So there's this toy that teaches kids how to “choke the chicken.” No, not that chicken! It's a toy chicken, called Choke-a-Chicken that you literally choke!

Michael Beatty, spokesman for the Queensland state branch of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, fumed: “What's next? Burn a cat? Shoot a dog?

Personally, I'd figure the next toys in this particular line would be: Spank a Monkey, or Groom a Wookie. Note: I did some extensive research on future toys over at Wikipedia.


BlingoSo Blingo is this search engine (it uses google’s search results) that gives you prizes for searching. That is, if you search at exactly the right time, you can get a prize like an iTunes gift certificate or a PSP or something. Only 10 searches count per day, so searching all day won’t get you any better odds. Still, I’m going to try it to see if I can win anything. You should too. And sign up as my friend, that way, if I win, you’ll get the same prize, and vice versa. Awesome, right?
