Jokebook: So Fast

A turtle goes up to a cop, and says, "Officer, I was just mugged by two snails."

The cop says, "All right, what did they look like?"

The turtle says, "I’m not sure. It all happened so fast."

Quote of the Week: Most Unintelligible

Lloyd Levin, co-producer of “Watchmen,” on Fox studio’s decision to initially turn down the movie proposal:
An internal Fox email documents that executives there felt the script was one of
the most unintelligible pieces of s*** they had read in years.

I read an interview on with a guy who invented something called TV-B-Gone. It's basically a universal remote that can shut down any TV in the area. My first reaction was why would you want to do that? Then I read it's for turning off those ubiquitous TVs you find in public places. I started looking around at all the televisions that surround us. There's a TV in the break room here at my work. There's a TV at the doctor's office waiting room. There's a TV in the lobby of a potential employer. There's a TV in the bank. There are TVs everywhere, and we've just come to accept them as a part of our lives. And knowing that someone is paying to stick all these TVs in our faces makes it more galling to think about. So I say "good." Use these babies. Power to the people.

NOTE: There's a better interview at Wired.
