Eugene Mirman and the Anti-Gay Phone Company

@ 11:28 PM | Filed Under: Humor (t) | Comments (0) | Cosmos

Eugene Mirman is a funny guy. Here's further proof. You have to listen to the "Anti Gay Phone Call I" and "Anti Gay Phone Call II" MP3s.

Best Spam Ever and Gabriel Jeffrey's New Book

@ 11:14 AM | Filed Under: Humor (t) | Comments (0) | Cosmos

[UPDATE: So much for it being a random email. The book author gave the publisher my email. ;)]

I love the gapingvoid cartoons. I think we all have at least one person in our lives who reminds us of this one.
