The Tenant in Room 109: Because Scientists are Funnier Than You Are

My current renter is a little blog called Because Scientists Are Funnier Than You Are, which was one I've never read before, but it tickled me so I thought it was worth the space.

Because Scientists are Funnier Than You Are

This is another older blog, with entries running back into 2002. Most of the old entries are short commentaries on links and they lack permalinks so I can't really discuss them or bring any particular one to your attention. When it comes to politics, we don't exactly see eye to eye, but by god, when he goes after pop culture figures, he is merciless in a way I just have to respect, and very very funny while doing it as well.

So let's start with the Dear Abby letter he always wanted to write. He also wrote a great rip about the woman who is suing Gene Simmons for defamation because she appeared beside him in a picture in a documentary as the number of his sexual conquests was revealed.

And speaking of sex, I would be remiss if I didn't mention his take on
Angelina Jolie
's prowess as a lover. Or a wonderfully sly take on the potential I Dream of Jeannie movie which has some decent shots at Jessica Simpson. And this David Hasselhoff ad has to be seen to be believed.

I think my favorite posting most recently from the site is this article that uses the movie Weird Science as a template to evaluate the people at the company you work for, and in thinking about it, a lot of it does ring true.

Of course, I am just revealing the tip of the iceberg, as there are a lot of celebrities who are discussed and mocked that I am not illuminating... if they are notable, they have probably been burned by this blog, and that is a good thing.

So check it out!
