I say it's a hoax

"Pride & Predator" - definitely a hoax.

Best excerpt from the comments, however:

"Sounds great. To be be really effective it should be quite light on the Predator - have really long courtship scene in the countryside and then have the Predator just materialise in a tree and vaporise them. I am a man of simple tastes."

This is why I don't use PERL

I don't care how logical it is. I can barely remember C syntax, and it has about 20 operators.

For the rest of the audience, a properly dark piece from The Onion.

Plus some handy laundry tips for Paul.

Immortal Dr Who jellyfish poised to rule Earth: Self-mothering clone blobominations amok


For anyone that doesn't read the register, "well, you should" (Major, 1994, cited in Izzard, 1996)

ahem, so read this excellent article. excerpt:

"And that's not all. The reborn, undying gelatinous blob-cyst monsters can also "spawn" hundreds of genetically identical clones of themselves, each of which is also immortal and able to replicate itself at will using its own former guts, muscles or whatnot, transformed for the nonce into a thicket of supplementary genitalia"

facebook group of the week: The fake tan midget and pirate porn appreciation society


The Description is worth sticking with until the end:

"to my utter dismay I have found a shocking lack of pirates shagging bleach blonde midget slags with fake tan caked on like they've been wrestling other female midgets in a field of mud, which i also have not been able to find!
or how about amputee porn particularly when they're covered in industrial Swarfega. Licking cats bumholes. Whilst singing Gregorian chants. Badly. While caressing the dead gullets of fish. ACROSS THEIR FAKE BREASTS. And pretending it's ostrich scat.
I demand a broader range of porn for the people who appreciate it for reasons other than sexual gratification, although if thats how you get your kicks, fair play!"

join now!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies


The Classic Regency Romance—Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!
Quirk Books


"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane Austen's beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she's soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead. "
