Jacob Lew, President Barack Obama's White House chief of staff and new U.S. Treasury secretary nominee, was ridiculed earlier this week for his childlike signature comprised of nothing more than few looping pen strokes.
Quickly dubbed "Loopy Lew," numerous media outlets scoffed at Lew for his absurd signature that will soon grace newly printed American currency.
Now Yahoo! News has released the Jack Lew Signature Generator, a tool to turn any name into the man's nearly illegible scrawl. We've included a couple Lew-py examples below.
Can't really add much. Just watch the video.
Though presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been vague on specifics, one thing he's been clear on is that he doesn't support the Public Broadcasting Service and would defund the shit out of it.
A new video satirizing Romney's dislike of PBS just hit the Web. Romney vs. Big Bird, the grudge match of the week.
For reasons not entirely clear to anyone, South Korean singer PSY's video Gangnam Style has become an international megahit, with incredible levels of radio airplay and media coverage despite the native tongue of the country.
And as with all things on YouTube, success spawns parody, generally around Star Wars or Star Trek themes.
So here it is, Klingon Style, a parody of the song, sung entirely in Klingon.
Now all we need is a Star Wars version. Oh look, there it is.
Up next from Hugh Atkin, the creator of the Eminem-Romney mashup, "Will the Real Mitt Romney Please Stand Up," comes the Obama and M.C. Hammer mashup you didn't know you were waiting for.
And it features guest vocals from Clint Eastwood and Hulk Hogan to boot. Bangarang.
Missouri Republican Rep. Todd Akin aroused a mighty shitstorm with his statements about female anatomy having built-in defenses against pregnancy in cases of "legitimate rape," an assertion so incorrect that it is only taught at the University of Todd Akin's Butt—where his head clearly earned a master's degree.
One filmmaker responded by turning Akin's statement into a creepy pharmaceutical commercial for "Legitimate Rape," an answer to those suffering from "Sexually Liberated Uterine Tendencies," or SLUT.
It's creepy, violent and bizarrely comical.
Have way too much free time on your hands? Well, here's one way someone beat you to spending it: mashing up nearly 300 movie clips to sing "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-Lot.
In December 2010, Cobweb wrote about a "panda cam" set up by Mozilla, the software development company behind the Firefox Web browser. A 24-hour stream of three young red pandas was sent out to millions of users to raise awareness of the endangered species.
After broadcasting "250,000 hours of cuteness," Mozilla is closing down Firefox Live. The red pandas, now 8 months old, have reached adulthood.
Two of the amber-colored critters, Dolly and Winston, will now head to Zoo Boise, according to a Mozilla announcement in March.
Zoo Boise officials will continue to implement a species survival plan, part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' efforts to save red pandas. Dolly and Winston will add extra genetic diversity to the red panda population already on hand at the zoo.
Their sister, Bernadette, goes on to Virginia Zoo in Norfolk, Va., for an arranged marriage with a young male panda named Oscar.
There have been approximately seven bazillion Republican presidential debates so far. And the candidates seem to view them as an opportunity to strip off whatever shreds of likability they have.
Meanwhile, on the other team, President Obama is singing Al Green in front of a Patton-sized American flag.
Good luck topping that, Romney.
