Mucho linkage this week!

The bowling league they stole those pins from is gonna be piiiiissed

A video of the best team jugglers in the world. I love how the commentator, himself a professional juggler, gets increasingly bitter at how much better they are than him.

That's a pile of carp if you ask me.

The Onion reports on a promising new service offering short-term carp rental.

Resistance is fut...what? You've heard that one before?
