The television program Adventures of Superman
aired in first run from 1952 to 1958. When it ended, producer Whitney Ellsworth
-- not that one
-- sought to produce a follow-up series, The Adventures of Superpup
. The show
concerned an anthropomorphic super dog, Superpup
, whose secret identity was mild-mannered reporter Bark Bent. (Bark was assisted by ace reporter Jimmy Olsen, who was now a mouse hand puppet
living in Bark's desk drawer.) Naturally the producers cast little people in dog masks
, as one does. [more inside]

Last night, British ITV broadcasted "Exposure: Gaddafi and the IRA

from videogame ArmA 2
. ITV has stopped streaming the documentary.

Entomological blogger Bug Girl (previously
) debunked a web site
touting the benefits of giant Japanese non-biting genital lice as personal "pets" (they just live happily in your underwear. It’s so COOL! They grow, and have families. You can feel em living and crawling around!)
. She dismissed it as a hoax.
So the site's author sent
her a sample
"1 Crunchwrap Supreme + 1 OCTO-MAC
+ 20 or so Taco Bell Fire Sauce packets + Taco Bell Cheese Sauce + Bacos + Garfield's Macaroni & Beef + A splash of Jim Beam + Approximately 2 cups of salsa = GODKILLER
, for why else would it exist but to kill God?" [more inside]
Doctors successfully removed a two-inch nail from a man's genitals yesterday.
Doctors pulled the nail out of his urethra on their first attempt and later said the man could have died if the object had not been spotted on X-ray. The man had admitted himself to SMC on Sunday night with extreme abdominal pain and was unable to speak.
The man told doctors the last thing he remembered was having something sprayed in his face and being fondled by one of his assailants before he blacked out. [more inside]

How to win at the internet:
Horse mask? Check. Wild mushrooms? Check. Improbable thongs and partial nudity? Check. Dancing? Check. Craziest goddamn thing I've ever seen on the internet? Absolutely. As if I even need to say it, this isn't safe for work, for human consumption, or retaining what few shreds of sanity you believe that you may still cling to.
