The Blog Post of the Beast

No doubt countless blogs will sport the same title today, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity. So it's too bad I got nothin'.

Other people do, though.

Ran and Ken remind us that it's the 62nd anniversary of D-Day.

The ol' Antichrist himself, Damian Penny, brings us this topical nugget from the Beeb:

A woman born weighing 6lbs 6oz on 6 June at 0600 BST, and who is 66 on 6/6/06, is refusing to drive on her birthday to help avoid accidents.

Very public-spirited of her.

A Dutch Christian group calls for violent worship to ward away that pesky evil. (Via the minions of Xenu.)

"Tipper," commenting on this Rantburg post, points out that this is a bad day for hexakosioihexekontahexaphobics everywhere. But that's good news for sesquipedalians.

And now, from the "Horrors of the Deep" department: Niles and I are reading our Dave Barry desk calendar, which has been talking about Alexandria, Indiana, which once upon a time boasted the world's largest hairball. I have not been able to find a picture of the Alexandrian hairball, but a search turned up Zip It, a drain-unclogger.

It's a long strip of plastic sporting tiny barbs. You stick it down the drain and it drags up all the disgusting hair you've ever washed down the drain, plus the disgusting hair of the last ten or twenty people who lived in your home before you. Then, if you have any sense whatsoever, you throw the whole damn thing away. They have a Greatest Clogs Club, which should not be viewed by the weak or infirm. A must for those who wash their Old English Sheepdogs in the bathtub.

More evil later if I encounter any, and it doesn't eat me.

UPDATE: In the comments to the Rantburg post linked above, I said I'd heard a local radio spot in which the DJs said, "Tomorrow, we're going to Hell!" They were going to call up a fellow in Hell, Michigan. Turns out that was Mike Hickey, owner of the Dam Site Inn in Hell, as reported here. I remembered they'd said he owned the Dam Site. Naturally, it has a web site. Heh, to coin a phrase.
