Weekend Coffee Links: Missing Cobra Edition

by on 04/02/2011 • 2 Comments | Reading Nuggets

Hello! Welcome back to Saturday and congrats on making it this far! I hope your week treated you well and that your weekend will soon be filled with belly laughs, naps, and whatever other odd stuff you’re into.  Personally, I see some major napping and Girl Scout cookie eating in my future. But before all THAT can kick off, I present you with my picks for the most interesting and/or amusing links of the week.  You’re sure to find something interesting to catch your eye and bring up over brunch. Ready?

Onward!

  • Boy skis into bear den, lives: A 12-year-old boy fell into a bear den and managed to get out with just a few scratches. Sadly, the bear cubs who live there may not be so lucky. Go snuggle your young, mama bear!
  • Bronx Zoo Cobra found: Speaking of things that could kill you, the poisonous Egyptian cobra that escaped last week has been found safe and sound back at the zoo.  While that’s great and all, I do hope he keeps tweeting.
  • The Art of the Press Release: Greg Garcia, the man behind Raising Hope, wrote a press release to mainstream media explaining why they should write about his show.  Why do I never get press releases like this? I only get the boring ones.
  • I won’t murder you: When your friends told you that only creeps hunt for relationships on the Internet, they were talking about this guy.
  • On Saying No: The article is from 2008 but I still haven’t learned the lesson. You probably haven’t either.
  • Baby Jessica Turns 25: Remember that little baby that fell down the well for 52 or so hours? She’s 25 now and has two kids.  She also has access to her $800,000 trust fund people created on her behalf.  Yowsa. Hopefully she does something useful with the money.
  • A large movie popcorn = 3 Big Macs:  Yeah. File that under “things you wish you didn’t know”.
  • Twin baby boys have a conversation:  Two 17-month-old twins just hanging out in their diapers having a conversation. Oh, if only we understood baby talk.
  • 25 Stars From The 90s You Probably Didn’t Know Where On Twitter:  I know I should be way too mature for this list but, who are we kidding? Rider Strong! DJ! MY ENTIRE CHILDHOOD!
  • Skittles Touch: Cat: I really have no words for this video other than you have to watch it. And I blame Greg Finn for introducing it to me.

That’s it from me. What caught your eye this week?

  1. Candace Cameron Bure is on Make It or Break It aka my new obsession. It’s completely ridiculous.

    My friend teaches kids self-defense and one of the lessons is “No is a complete answer.” It’s pretty much the most important thing to learn ever.

  2. Skittles Touch: Cat – a terrible advertisement. Thanks for the compilation, but it is better to match the subject site. Such as video on SEO promotion sites. Do you have it?
