What’s Not On The Gray Lady’s iPhone?

“An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated the premise of ‘Angry Birds,’ a popular iPhone game. In the game, slingshots are used to launch birds to destroy pigs and their fortresses, not to shoot down the birds.” [NYT, via @pourmecoffee]


NPR this morning referred to the Straw That Stirred the Drink aka one of three people to hit 3 HRs in one Series game as Jesse Jackson.

@Nabisco: I’m sure Congressman Reggie Jr. asked for a correction.

That’s important work the NYT is doing there …

How the fuck do you write an article about a game without having at least watched someone play it?

@karen marie has her eyes tight shut: It was actually a book review of the new Steve Jobs biography. But this helps indicate the competence of the reviewer.

@nojo: Shit, I can write incompetently on all manner of subjects too, why don’t I have a job at the NY Times?

I’m not sure if this is incredibly funny or if I’m incredibly drunk. In any event…wait…typing is making me forget why it’s funny.

Heh. Yeah, it’s funny.

WTF with the [!] after Herman Munster? I’ve seen it, I haven’t gotten the joke, and now I’m so drunk that I don’t mind admitting that I have no fucking clue why pizza man gets an ! — the only person deserving an ! is ¡Andrew! and he fucking gets two, and one of them makes you turn your computer upside down and shit.

Back from nature walk with gun. Been going like a crazy man since Thursday and have not had a good night’s sleep since Tuesday or Wednesday. My brother’s girlfriend the wildlife biologist says we were in excellent habitat (which I located with map study and sat photos) but that the elk were freaked out and hiding after two bow hunts, two muzzleloader hunts and a previous rifle hunt last wee. The late season rifle hunt is a low percentage game.

Time for a drink, a bath and bed. Catch up with you guys later.

@JNOV: Merely following the Author!’s wishes.

@nojo: Wait — he does that shit to himself? Stupid fucker.

@JNOV: This is Herman Cain!

How can anyone resist?

Angry Birds is awesome. Angry Birds Rio is for pussies.

@Benedick: I’m a big fan of Plants v. Zombies on the iPhone. Check it out – well worth the $2.99.
