I cite this work: Monty Python -- Enough ... Beret Guy is a great channel for the nonsensical humor we all need sometimes. I'm really surprised you compared this one to CAD, actually; that humor just tends to lack sophistication. This is truly embracing the bizarre side of humor. As a matter of fact, I lol'd.

It got with the Popular Culture incident, yeah. Seriously guys, knock this the hell off already. Even if you don't think it's vandalism or, you know, obnoxious, at least realise that it's old already.


Seconded. Or I should say, thirded. Leave the Wikipedia vandalism for the hordes of undignified tubers already out there. Shouldn't we be better than that?

In a *slightly* unrelated note, did anyone else notice that the Existentialist seems to have appeard in http://xkcd.com/328/? Behind a counter? Perhaps this is where he got his bakery-er-iffic beginnings.

I say definitely a Get Smart reference (for those who don't quite get the comic - the agents come upon a "bakery" that is actually used for arsenal [or something], and later on a third character mentions that all that was found at the "bakery" was cake... or something).

Every one in six objects being a scone doesn't mean a whole planet of scones, necessarily... I would think that the likelihood of a single object being a scone would be independent and disjoint (right?) and therefore the likelihood of an entire planet to be made of scones is (1/6)^(however many scones could fit into the planet). Unless, of course, the object could be of any size, and there's gigantic space-scones out there, in which case 1/6 of your cells are actually SCONES! I think I've just discovered the cure for world hunger (find the space scone) and dry skin (anti-scone cream). Glad to see that my rambling on teh internets is not fruitless. :D

Rather than jump on the scone bandwagon I am going to continue bouncing along on the cheese one. Mhmhmmmm, brie.

I want one of those levitating I-beams they use in the infiltration ...

I wondered what that was attached too . . .

Also, where would I find one of those? Do they sell them at the warehouse?
