Photobombers Of The Day, Vol. 2 (NSFW)

Another round of hilariously ruined photos, most of them sent in by you, my readers, after seeing the first Photobombers post.

Several of these are unsafe for work. On some you definitely need to click the pic for a larger view in order to fully appreciate the shot.

Are some of these Photoshopped? Probably. Do I care? Nope. They're still funny.

Just another way to say, "Get a room!"

Whoa there, Ted Bundy, you're scaring us.

When you gotta go, you gotta go.

His goiter looks a lot like Jessica Simpson.

I thought only dudes did that.

Metal sucks!

Does it smell like ass in here to you guys?

George Carlin's ghost loves photobombing.

Dogs love photobombing...

... and so do cats.

You never forget your first Heineken.

Some photobombing is accidental, but still makes an impression.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's brew, dude.

The Captain loves photobombing.

Wow, that's my kind of party.

Many thanks to Gem, Meghan, Greg, Robin, Andres, Stwh20s, Gary, Nikki, Dylan, Charlotte, Amy, Tat42, TheKey, and for the pics.

19 Weird/Cool USB Gadgets

(Some more weird than cool, and vice versa. From LOTD reader Craig and I added a few from my own sponsors.)

The plethora of USB ports now offered by today's PCs has spawned an abundance of unusual devices. A small culture of collectors has even emerged around odd USB gadgets, and chances are one of them works in your office, displaying his collection of bizarro devices proudly on his desk.

Here are some of the weirdest and/or coolest examples we've found.

Movie Quote Of The Day

I love this quote from The Karate Kid. It seems to come to my mind often, I suppose because it applies to most things in life.

MIYAGI: Now, ready?

DANIEL: Yeah, I guess so.

MIYAGI: (sighs) Daniel-san, must talk. (They both kneel.) Walk on road, hm? Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later (makes squish gesture)... get squish just like grape. Here, karate, same thing. Either you karate do "yes" or karate do "no." You karate do "guess so," (makes squish gesture) just like grape. Understand?

DANIEL: Yeah, I understand.

MIYAGI: Now, ready?

DANIEL: Yeah, I'm ready.

Or, as my grandad used to say, "If you're gonna do it, do it. If not, don't." And then he'd whack me upside the head with a 2x4 to help me remember. I loved that old man.
