The Bizarre! The Cool! The Wonderful! (and fan mail from Germany)


I’ve just received this really cute and amusing email from 1 of 2 identicaL twin brothers from Konigsburg, Germany.  Let’s see if we can help these boys out!

I stood in line for an hour with my identical twin while we were visiting California and now we are betting a lot on your cuisine. I believe you can settle the matter. We are taking this seriously and we have made a bet. I have a Brioni suit that he wants and he has a green Ford mustang from 1972 that I want.

Your information will settle the matter and my brother and I can put the matter behind us once we hear from you.

My understanding is that your tacos are Persian tacos but he says that they are actually Lebanese tacos. I checked online and it said something about the owner being Korean. I know they are not Korean but I can’t figure it out. If they are Korean then we will trade them for a six month period. The cabbage in there is confusing me greatly.

Thank you and good day,

Mark Black

I saw this and felt so SAD FOR THE GOLDFISH!!!  It’s called The Poor Little Fishbowl.  And made by a Chinese person.  As you turn on the faucet, the water level also drops, controlling your water consumption via guilt and developing in your once-happy goldfish a solid case of PTSD.  You can read more about it HERE.

So apparently this is a pet carrier for your pets.  And, granted, it’s for the elderly to “walk” their dogs, but seriously, doesn’t this defeat the whole purpose of walking your dog???  I mean, aren’t we supposed to walk our dogs so that they can get some exercise and some form of visual and auditory stimulation outside of the house?  POOR DOGGIE!!!  It’s essentially a stroller for dogs, which I don’t support.  Babies have an excuse (UP TO A CERTAIN POINT!) because they either can’t walk or they can’t walk far.  Or they’re so friggin slow, they’re gonna give you an aneurysm waiting for them to catch up with your power walking.  But LOOK!  They’ve got AIRHOLES!!!  Lucky dog/cat.  More HERE.

OMG SO CUTE!!!  >__<  Above is an excerpt from a 6-year-old girl’s imagined 3-year whaling expedition.  YOU CAN ALMOST HEAR HER PIRATE ACCENT!!!  More of the cuteness accessible HERE.

AHAHAHA.  I just thought this was the most amazing Taiwanese movie poster EVER.  Hey, TAIWAN.  YOU’RE AWESOME.  This is from 1961’s Fantasy of the Deer Warrior: “Natural scenes, Animal (beast) suits, Taiwanese fairy tale movie.”   The poster alone makes this an absolute must-see.  Original link HERE.

Aaaaaaaaaand, that’s about all I’ve got for you peoples.  For today.  MWAH!

Love and tacos,
