If you're really bored...

...one fun thing to do is to dig a big freakin hole, jump down in it and find some pipes to fix.

The perils of a Swede travelling to Spain.

If you translate this sign from Spanish it says "one free hour"...
...but in Swedish it says "one free whore."

What is this?

Answer to last week: Allison had the right idea. That was an x-ray of Leo's sinus cavity. It was taken a few years ago, but we recently found it while sorting and purging our stuff.

Vad är det?

What is this?

Answer to last week: Nope, not an opener. You put that thing on the end of a tube of say, banana caviar (yes, that exists here), then use it to roll up the tube as you use it so you are sure to sqeeze out every last morsel.

What is this thing?

There was some confusion with last week's since some of you thought we were pointing to the guard over the rear wheel. What we were trying to point to is the 'Springer.'

Buy yours today for just $48 at Springer USA!

Truth in Advertising

This jar clearly states it's contents: "100% Fruit & Berry Strawberry Jam." They even glued a frilly paper thingy to the lid, just to let us know how wholesome it is.

But if one dares to turn the jar around and have a look at the ingredients, it contains preservatives: Calcium sorbate. Granted, it's only 0.1%, but still...some quick math reveals that this product is really 99.9% Fruit & Berry! I don't really know what calcium sorbate is, but Wikipedia says it's 'CaC12H14O4' and that sure as heck aint no fruit or berry.
