2500 and counting, 252 bodies to 911 iraq parity day

back in february, i introduced the concept of 911 iraq parity day, because while there is no connection between 911 and iraq, i guess we needed one. so, with the news that the american death toll in iraq has reached “a number” [according to white house press secretary tony snow], that number is now just 252 short of the number of americans killed on 911.

at the moment, the bigger number is between 38355 and 42747, but we don’t do body counts (we do do damage assessment).

so, i encourage you to drop in on the original post and get your bets in the comments. after all, at this rate (60-80/month), we’re just a few months away from 911 Iraq Parity Day.

mel brooks pre-goatse’s goatse

in 1976, one mel brooks directed (and starred in…) a film called silent movie. that film features the earliest obvious goatse i’ve ever documented, and for your browsing pleasure, i provide this documentation to you:

to save your eyes, the text reads:

engulf & devour
our fingers are in everything

salut, mr. brooks. genius. sheer genius.

update [2006.07.21] more explorations over at boingboing. i still think brooks was first…

this sort of thing doesn’t happen in america, right? stolen elections are the sorts of things you expect from third-world strongman dictators.

there are several months to get it fixed…
