Alphabet Blocks for a Geek Baby
"Amateur engineer/designer" Jonathan M. Guberman made his newborn son a set of custom engraved wooden alphabet blocks, with "things that his mother and I were looking forward to sharing with him" on 4 of the 6 sides. (See them all here)
"The only real rule I followed in choosing subjects was trying to maintain an even gender balance" which makes them even more awesome. (Of course, your choices for certain letters may vary)
Life's a Happy Song
sung by Kermit the Frog and Flight of the Conchords' Bret McKensie, who wrote the song [NYT]
Things that go moo in the night.
We've all heard of the possessed Raggedy Anne doll
, the eBay haunted painting
, and the talking mongoose
. But what about the rest, the dancing cows
, the evil muppets
, and the Kermit-like, child-molesting frogs
? Ludicrous enough to be true?
