Hey there, ‘Redheads… Here’s hoping hump day treated you better than Barry Bonds. Today, the asterisked home run king was found guilty of Obstruction of Justice, specifically lying to a grand jury about knowingly taking steroids. When he heard the verdict, his reaction was, “BARRY BONDS SMASH!” I’m not sure what he expected. Basically, his defense had been carefully crafted by a team of six year-olds, who advised him to plead “NUH-UH!”. Previously, he had stated that he didn’t know what he was taking. Well, here’s a hint. When your head grows and your balls shrink, you’re not taking Flintstones chewables. So, now some federal prison softball team is going to get a hell of a lot better.

There are two awesome nerdly items I found on the interwebs today. Here’s the first… It’s the blue canary in the outlet by the light switch who watches over you. If you’d like to make a little birdhouse in your soul, it’s a mere $12.99 over at ThinkGeek.com. The other bit of awesome comes at the 2:10 mark of the video below…

That’s right, folks. Some dude in Oklahoma is building an AT-AT. The news is made all the more awesome coming out from perky eye candy, Sara Underwood. I dare say it would be equally as cool if I heard it from Ed Asner. Let’s not let the messenger distract us from the fact that there’s an AT-AT under construction in Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plain. All I’m saying is, once it’s completed, two words come to mind: Road. Trip.

See you Thursday.
