Your favorite web comic sucks, but this one has bunnies.
Super cute bunny goodness can be found on Zack Rabbit's twitpic
stream (some image overlap). And don't miss the youtubery: "Still Alive," "Bumble Ball"
(NSFW if you're a stuffed animal), and "Yoga for Stuffed Animals" among others.
on twitter too.
It's Pancake Day
Also known as Shrove Tuesday
or Mardi Gras, the day before Lent is celebrated in the UK by events
such as football matches, races, and the consumption of mountains of pancakes
. Perhaps you celebrated by running a pancake race
, like the famous one in Ripon
, you made some lovely pancakes of your own

There is no word on whether IHOP has asked the Vatican to shift the timing of Lent.
As mentioned previously
, today is not only Super Tuesday, but also Fat Tuesday, otherwise known as Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday, or...International Pancake Day
. IHOP is not a happy camper that the biggest payday in its calendar (when it admittedly not only gives away free pancakes but raises money for charity in the process) has to compete with our pesky American democracy. As they say in their press release: “Super Tuesday, set for February 5, 2008, encroaches upon the centuries-old celebration of Pancake Day, traditionally held the Tuesday preceding Lent to rid iceboxes of forbidden dairy products.”
So it decided to thumb its nose at the Catholics and declare next Tuesday "National Pancake Day
," even though it's during Lent, which defeats the entire purpose. Except for those whose religion's highest priority is the consumption of free pancakes.
Tuesday Morning Quarterback moves to ESPN.com's Page 2.
. In April. (Other weblogs
missed the move, too; apparently the only clue was a Best of Slate post
.) I've always loved reading TMQ and I hope it's just as good at ESPN.com. Alternative viewpoint: TMQ Sucks
