The 5 Greatest Things About Carlo.

He may have turned up in a photo before, but I think it’s time for you to officially meet Carlo.

Carlo is great. He’s great for way more than five reasons, but I’m on a tight time budget.

Actually, just going by the photo above, I’m sure you could dream up more than twenty reasons why Carlo’s so great. It’s no tall order. Only the worst cynics, the jerks who are contrary just for the sake of it, wouldn’t be able to. Read More…

Alien.

Since you guys did such a great job last time, I thought we’d give it another try.

In a single comment, your job is to explain what you’re seeing here.

BFCDAW #2: My New Robot.

It’s time for Bullshit Filler Content Devised At Work #2.

This one was important. Today was crazy busy. I knew I wouldn’t have the energy to come up with an original concept after the long commute home. If I wanted to post anything tonight, I needed a BFCDAW miracle.

Nope. HAD to be a robot.

My materials: A paper plate, a plastic cup, a few markers and some individually wrapped Twizzlers. Post-Its, too. I don’t know. I was just grabbing whatever I could find. It was madness.
