We all grew up on Looney Toons, Tom & Jerry, Saturday morning cartoons – and old amusement park owners saying that they would have gotten away with it, if it weren’t for those meddling kids!
And if you were to sit down and watch those classic cartoons today – you’d see a rash of violence bestowed upon the characters to each other: faces blown off, coyotes plummeting to their deaths, anvils falling from the sky.
Hunters on a mission to kill. Coyotes on a mission to kill. Yellow parakeets on a mission to kill. Giant roosters on a mission to torture a dog. Continue reading IT’S TRUE: ANIMATED CHILDREN’S FILMS ARE MORE VIOLENT THAN FILMS FOR ADULTS
We think our favorite part of this horrible, horrible video that showcases the death of BARNEY THE DINOSAUR is watching it muted. Continue reading BARNEY THE DINOSAUR IS DEAD. VIDEO AT 11.
Talk about the ultimate “brain freeze”!
There have been many people who have said that “man was never intended to drink cow’s milk, unless man wanted to be as fat as a calf”. For those people, human milk is the only kind to have.
And maybe – just maybe, they’ve been right all along.

Who would be crazy enough to sign up for a one-way ticket to Mars, knowing that they will never come back to Earth, and that they WILL die on this mission?
Apparently over 1000 people have volunteered to DIE on a proposed Mission to Mars.

Some people enjoy going to visit their dentist. Many people don’t care for their annual visit and try to put it off as much as possible.
Maybe the people who don’t enjoy going to the dentist know something that the rest of us don’t: that the Dentist is trying to kill you!

There are two things in life that are unavoidable: death and taxes.
And in some cases, some deaths can lead to more taxes if the estate planning and last will and testament aren’t handled carefully.
After all, there’s a reason there are some ARTICLES ABOUT UNUSUAL WILLS and bequethes, with millions upon millions of dollars being left to care for family pets or monkeys.

High school athletics are nothing to sneeze at.
For some, it’s a required part of the curriculum, intended to encourage healthy living and the strong development of young bodies still growing.
For others, it’s a way out of a podunk town and into a major university or professional career.
But if you participate in a solid high school sports program, there’s a good chance that you’ll end up hurt…. or even dead.

We know you’ve done it at least once – everyone has pee’d in the pool at least once in their life.
Of course, this is more expected with children and others who have less control of their bathroom habits, but we’re sure that there are one or a dozen adults out there who have peed in the pool – on purpose – on some drunken night.
Heck, we’re fairly certain we saw one of the contestants on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette pee in the hot tub on an episode. We definitely remember seeing it happen in MTV’s The Real World hot tub, as well as on CBS’s Big Brother. And Michael Phelps did say that “all Olympic swimmers pee in the pool… all the time!”
If an Olympic athlete will pee in the pool, then how bad could it be for the rest of us?

There’s one thing that’s a given in life, they say: death and taxes.
And if you’re lucky, you won’t ever have to pay taxes.
But everybody is going to die sometime, and the question you should ask is what do you plan on doing with your body when you’re gone? Are you a burial person? A cremation person?
Not everybody is going to have their ashes sprinked into the water on the it’s a small world ride at Walt Disney World (we know it’s happened), or packed into a firework and blown up in a celebratory display, or made into a diamond.

Web Watch was talking with a real estate agent the other day about new home construction, and we thought we’d ask, “has anyone every inquired whether the new home was built on an ancient Indian burial ground?”.
They looked at us blankly, and said “yes”. It’s a quite common question for them, it seems, whether it be new home construction or even trying to find out a bit more about existing home sales.

We all know the lyrics to the song, DEVIL WENT DOWN TO GEORGIA:
if you’d care to take a dare I’ll make a bet with you.
Now you play a pretty good fiddle, boy, but give the Devil his due.
I’ll bet a fiddle of gold against your soul ’cause I think I’m better than you
So what the Devil is proposing in his offer is that Johnny (who plays pretty good fiddle, boy) has a soul that’s only worth a golden fiddle.
The question is, is Johnny getting ripped off a bit?

There are many different, silly ways to die – at least, that’s what the video says:

The other day, Web Watch was browsing through various birthday cards at the local Target, trying to find The Perfect Card for a friend.
When picking out a birthday card, one always has to take into consideration whether the recipient shares the same sense of humor (if you go for a funny card), can appreciate a joke at their aging expense, or if you need to go the safe route and go with a sappy poem or note that more honestly conveys how you really feel about your relationship with that friend.
Friends seldom offer cards to each other – it’s more of a family thing, we believe. With friends, it’s easier to just go out for a drink and celebrate the birthday event with them.
But when your friends live across the country, then sending a card is almost the same thing as being there – especially if you get the sentiment just right.

THE SOPRANOS was, as everyone who’s seen the show has said, a milestone in television history. There are very few television series that can get that amount of water cooler talk going these days, although some have tried (*cough* The Red Wedding *cough*).
But with The Sopranos, it really did hit its peak with the final episode, which is widely considered THE BEST FINAL TV EPISODE EVER, even though Entertainment Weekly said it was only worth the #10 spot on their list. Go figure.
