I knew that I knew it from somewhere. It sounded familiar, but I couldn't place it. Now I know. The Olympics stole their theme song from the opening credits ofWhat do Bruce Campbell and the Olympics have in common? - Tuesday TubeWatch

The Oatmeal, while not very old, has become an insanely popular site, and with good reason. It’s really funny.

Ten words you need to stop misspelling

These are important posts that should not be missed. You MUST click on them, read them, learn them, and live them.

None of you have any excuses anymore for leaving comments on this site that contain misspellings or improper semicolon use.
