Fun on the Web June 2, 2011 Everything You Want to Know

Everything you need to know, ranging from a summer reading program, to travel, to internet and business, to hobbies, to home and garden


"Food addicts are the people I feel sorriest for because
that's really hard. You need to eat. You don't need to do
drugs. Very hard for these people to quit. "I'm going cold
turkey... mmmmm turkey. Do not think about food... do not
think about food... do not... nuts..." -Craig Ferguson


"Subway sandwich shops are testing out several upscale restaurants called Subway Cafes. They feature wood paneling, lounge seating, and other things to distract you from the tuna fish being served with an ice-cream scoop." -Jimmy Fallon


How unfortunate for Weight Watchers. The sign for its branch in a Roanoke, Virginia, mall sits above the sign for a tie-dye shop. The name of that store? A Little Bit Hippy.


Long lines were supposed to be a thing of the past once our neighborhood supermarket installed a self-serve checkout counter. Customers easily figured it out -- except for the woman at the front of my line. In its irritating computer-generated voice, the machine kept reminding her to take one item after another out of the scanning zone before she could check the next. There was a constant "Move ... your ... produce" and "Move ... your ... milk" and so on. Everyone in the growing line was getting restless, but even we had to laugh when she left a bag of dinner rolls on the scanner and the machine commanded, "Move ... your ... buns."


Hope you enjoyed my fun on the web today!
