First In Line For iPhone - I'm not one to make fun of someone else for waiting in line to buy something geeky. I sat on a sidewalk for 14 hours to get Phantom Menace tickets, and when it came out on DVD I sat on the sidewalk outside my house for another 14 hours before bringing it inside and watching it.

That said, this guy has been waiting in line for five days to get a $600 iPhone. This means he either has plenty of disposable income or he should be in line at an employment agency, yet he casually mentions on his blog that readers can donate their own hard-earned money to him through Paypal for this incredible feat.

If you were thinking about donating some coinage to Darfur, please reconsider your foolish waste of money. A man is buying a piece of consumer electronics. Can you really sleep at night knowing you did nothing to help him?

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
