I am totally thrilled with The Count’s latest level-up of his bear-drawing technique. That bear looks like it just wandered out of the Jamboree.

I haven’t thought about that Tick video game in several years. For us, what promised to be a laugh, slowly became a festival of masochism as we kicked and punched our way thru endless waves of ninjas.
I refused to let the game defeat me and, after several hours of slowly punching and kicking palette-swapped enemies, we made it to the final boss, Chairface Chippendale.
Then the Super Nintendo locked up.
There was nothing we could do but restart, and neither of us had the heart to spend another large chunk of time playing that game. We were judged, and found lacking.

On the subject of slap wraps, I had a couple. I’ve also made a few wax hands in my time on this Earth.
I’d think that the new equivalent to the slap bracelet are Silly Bandz. Overthinking It has a fine write-up here.
They also have a pretty good article titled Newtonian Inconsistencies in Lena’s “Satellite” which pretty much delivers the goods.
