Sunday Burst of Weirdness


Several items:

:: Oh, come on. Did Marvel Comics really sanction this? Talk about reinforcing stereotypes of comic book readers. Yeesh. (May not be work-safe. Via.)

:: Belladonna sent me a link to this very odd video. Again, I’m a fan of the old edible missile — but teeny-tiny ones shot by trebouchet at insects? Huh?

:: Not weird, actually, but very cool: a video inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry. (The entire tapestry can be perused on this site.)

UPDATE: Wow, I forgot the weirdest thing from this past week — this page of old print advertisements. Lots of times old ads are fun to peruse because they have an oddly touching air about them, as if to say, “Wow, the things they thought products could do!” But as demonstrated at that link, from the perspective of today, many old ads aren’t nostalgically touching but downright creepy. Here’s just one example:

Building a better India

Some of these really gave me the willies.

(I don’t remember for the life of me where I first saw this, so credit is due to somebody. If it’s a blogger on my blogroll, let me know!)
