Winnie the Pooh Held for Robbery?

12 Aug

As if it’s not bad enough that Tigger’s always getting in trouble, now Winnie the Pooh’s getting into the act! Yahoo! News reports:

Japanese police have arrested a 20-year-old man who attacked and robbed two people after they stared at his Winnie-the-Pooh costume, officials said on Tuesday.

Masayuki Ishikawa was hanging out on a Tokyo street corner after midnight last month while wearing the cuddly costume, accompanied by two friends dressed as a mouse and a panther, when he took offence at being stared at, police said.

I would not be surprised to find a mouse in the Hundred Acre Wood, but a panther? Bit of a stretch perhaps. Or then again, one wouldn’t expect kangaroos there either.

Christopher Robin could not be reached for comment.

Disney lolcats Roundup

27 May

These things just accumulate in my blogreader . . . and every now and then I can’t resist sharing them with you all!

With apologies to all those Crocs-loving message board denizens, and a nod to ihatecrocs.com:

(Full disclosure: I own a pair of fleece-lined crocs, which I rarely wear in public but do love love love!)

And this last one has nothing to do with Disney, but it’s so funny I couldn’t resist:

Disney Ads on NSFW Sites

27 Mar

I think the headline here makes it clear . . . but the links below are probably not appropriate to follow from your office computer, or if your kid is reading over your shoulder. I even starred-out a blog name in the text below, to try to stay PG-13.

Apparently some of Disney’s ad buys are showing up in places you wouldn’t expect them . . . like smut sites. At least, that’s what Defamer tells me:

Occasionally, when the planets align just so and the sun strikes the Earth at the exact right location, we witness that rarest of phenomena known as Disney Ads on Smut Sites. Or at least that’s what gutter-minded rabblerouser [*******] calls it, having caught as many as six different instances of Walt Disney World Web ads aligned beside Egotastic’s recent coverage of sex tapes, flashings and other NSFW (and definitely NSFDW) mini-scandals.

I had to think twice about whether I wanted to blog about this, because I already get plenty of traffic from people looking for materials I don’t carry here, and I’m sure this will lead to more disappointed people, hunting for something salacious and finding me whining about bus service at Saratoga Springs. Man, what a buzz kill.

But it struck me as kinda funny, plus I have to admit I was amused to discover the acronym “NSFDW.” I initially took it to mean “Not Safe for Disney World,” but now I wonder if it means something else. My friend Google introduced me to Malaysia’s National Standards for Drinking Water, but I’ll bet that wasn’t it. In any case, I think we need a new interweb meme: NSFWDW.

My Chief Magic Official Video Resume

28 Jan

Okay people, my Disney Chief Magic Official video is online. Good thing I don’t embarrass easily I have no idea whether the number of views of each video has any impact on selection of the first round of finalists . . . but I figure it couldn’t hurt to get some traffic, right?

Plus, I know y’all really need to see my attempt at deadpan comedy, right? So go ahead click here to see my PowerPoint, office-jargon-spewing skillz in action.

And hey, if you’re interested in linguistics and the interweb, especially if you already speek leet, you could do worse than to read their special in-depth analysis of lolspeak.

Star Wars III: The Backstroke of the West

2 Jan

Need a little humor this morning, perhaps feeling a little sad about going back to work after a holiday break? Winterson.com has highlights of Star Wars Episode III subtitles, reflecting the translation to Chinese and then back into English:

. . . i was walking past my friendly dvd salesperson and decided to check out revenge of the sith. i was assured the quality was good and for 7rmb why not give it a shot.

aside from the counters on the top of the screen and a distorted perspective it was ok- not high quality but watchable. the captions were a hilarious surprise- a direct english translation of the chinese interpretation of what the script was saying. it varied from being somewhat close to the script to being ‘far far away’….

I have a similarly confusing (and sometimes unintentionally hilarious) Mandarin release of the Neon Genesis Evangelion movies. As if Eva hadn’t already broken my brain.

Offbeat Disney-inspired T-shirts from Cryogenically Frozen

29 Dec

The Disney Blog this morning points us to an irreverent little cafepress store, Cryogenically Frozen, set up by a friend of his who has worked at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. The shop sells t-shirts inspired by Disney attractions past and current, as well as backstage humor (protein spill, anyone?).

Oswald fans will be glad to know there’s a t-shirt proclaiming, “I hope we never lose sight of one thing . . . it was all started by a stolen rabbit.” (Or perhaps was it started by a little girl, playing with a blatent Felix rip-off?)

Santa in Stormtrooper Custody?

25 Dec

From Gizmodo:

An Imperial Stormtrooper commando broke into Santa’s Factory on the North Pole yesterday evening, killing an undetermined number of elves, arresting the owner and confiscating his sled. Joe Kwazansky, local spokesman for the Evil Galactic Empire in Los Angeles, appeared in a press conference this morning confirming the rumors of an Imperial takeover of Christmas’ celebrations. “The Emperor wants to assure His subjects that Xmas will continue as planned. The pug-nosed fatso, however, will pay for his crimes,” Mr. Kwazansky said amid the palpable shock in the press corps. Apparently, the arrest has occurred in connection with earlier reports on the manufacturing and stealth placement of Weapons of Mass Destruction
