Weird Converter

Ad agencies love weird factoids. But they can be a pain in the butt to find. Weird Converter makes coming up with length or weight-related weird factoids so easy, it feels like cheating.
Did you know…

  • The Golden Gate Bridge is 155 1/2 Weinermobiles long?
  • Or that a blue whale weighs 1,750 Tom Cruises?

I hope you all appreciate that I have kept the examples free of excrement or genitalia. But Weird Converter also gives you those options.

Say it five times fast.

THIS was more appropriate than Stephen Colbert?

I’m speechless.

This column from the Washington Post has the color commentary. But it doesn’t make it any easier to watch. (Free registration required. Thanks to Justin C for the link.)

Oh, Grow Up

It makes me chuckle every time I hear Libby Lewis of NPR reporting a story on the Lewis “Scooter” Libby trial. I think can guess who they’re going to assign when the Totenberg Nina scandal breaks…
