Eminem likes puns, too

Been listening to Recovery on and off lately.  What’s started standing out to me (besides the fact that it’s much better than Relapse) are the puns.  Some particularly noticeable ones:

…but it’s time to exorcise these demons
These muh’fuckers are doin’ jumpin’ jacks now

-Not Afraid

My filet is smoking weed, 
Get back cuz the stakes are high

– Cinderella Man

…now you get to watch her leave out the window
Guess that’s why they call it window pane

– Love the Way you Lie

The lowly pun shows up everywhere these days…

Facebook Chat comes to Windows Live Messenger

Now, I try not to bore you too often with posts about work, but every so often we do something I can’t help but brag about.  Today was one of those days.

Around noon Pacific, we released an update to the Windows Live Messenger beta adding Facebook chat.  Now you can IM your Facebook friends from inside Messenger.  All you have to do is connect Facebook to Windows Live, fire up the Messenger beta, and chat away.  Facebook Chat in Messenger is starting out in 6 regions (Brazil, France, Germany, Russia, the UK, and the US).

Here’s what it looks like:


Chat joins the Messenger social view updates from May to make Messenger a great way to keep up with what’s going on in Facebook.  Give it a try and let me know how it goes.

Hey!  That Messenger screenshot looks familiar.  It came from one of my PowerPoints!

Internet leaks into newspaper. Hilarity ensues.

The Sunday paper is always a good way to wind down from the weekend and catch up on what’s been going on in the world.  Normally, I find out about all sorts of things I’ve never heard of before (ratfish, anyone?); however, today’s Foxtrot started out vaguely familiar and ended up making me laugh out loud.



For the uninitiated, it’s a reference to this video and its 10 million views.  Another entertaining derivative (with 6 million views of its own):


The Internet is such a productive place Smile.

And, finally, what would the Sunday comics be without a really bad pun courtesy of Pearls Before Swine?

Pearls Before Swine comic from 8/15/2010.  With a really bad pun.


Is that better, Hannah?
