Will it Blend? That is the Question.

So I was turned on to the “Will it Blend” phenomenon a while back when an Apple iPhone was blended. “Will it Blend” is a video podcast of sorts featuring a mad scientist type guy blending random objects that probably shouldn’t be blended.

Objects range from the aforementioned iPhone to Tiki Torches to (my personal favorite) Halloween glow sticks. The episodes take a pretty formulaic approach. The scientist guy talks about what he’s going to blend, picks a mode (like smoothie) and blends the item. The camera shows the item being blended initially, then pans out to show the dude in an awkward position, blending the object.

Once blending has commenced, the scientist dude opens the blender top. Then the phrase “_____ smoke, don’t breath this” will occur. And the verdict? Yes, it blends! How could we for even one second doubt the blending power of Blendtec blenders!?

Of course, reason that everything blends is probably due to the fact that Blendtec produces the show as well as the blenders. Still, it’s pretty damn entertaining for a random video podcast. Plus when they do change up the format, it’s awesome. Sort of like if you were watching Scooby-Doo and it turned out that the ghosts were real, or Scooby was actually a ghost, or if Velma and Daphne started making out like they did in the movie!

Let Me Show You My Pokemans. Let Me Show You Them.

I guess this random image has been around for a while, but I just saw it recently. I guess its resurgence in popularity has to do with the recent release of the new Pokemon Pearl and Pokemon Diamond games for the Nintendo DS.

I am a big fan of the cat macro images, and this one is just pure awesome. I guess the combination of cats in strange poses and bad grammar (“let me show you them!?”) is a comedy goldmine.

Oh, that reminds me, I really should buy those new Pokemon games. I know I’ll get them eventually, so it might as well be sooner than later. It’s not like they’d drop in price or anything…

Also, the ytmnd page of this poster has some awesome live arrangement of the Pokemon battle song. It’s sooo bad! I’m getting way too pumped listening to this.
