Headline from The Onion
: “CIA Realizes It's Been Using Black Highlighters All These Years.”
CIA Director Porter Goss has ordered further internal investigation.
"Why did it go on for this long, and this far?" said Goss in a press conference called shortly after the report's release. "I'm as frustrated as anyone. You can't read a single thing that's been highlighted. Had I been there to advise [former CIA director] Allen Dulles, I would have suggested the traditional yellow color—or pink."
Goss added: "There was probably some really, really important information in these documents."

File this under “Comics everyone else has already told you are good”: She-Hulk
. It’s hilarious. I read the two collections, and both were very entertaining. Here’s one of my favourite moments:
I was going to say that I was surprised at how good the series was, but that’s not true; I’ve thought for a while now that Dan Slott is a talented writer. His plotting and dialogue are both top notch, but what I like most is his ability to create characters. The new characters in Slott’s books feel like they’ve always existed in the worlds he’s writing. His work shows an understanding of the stories that came before, without seeming derivative, repetitive, or boring. When most other writers insert new characters into existing franchises, the effect is jarring at first. Slott’s characters, in She Hulk
and in his and Ryan Sook’s Arkham Asylum
mini, fit so well that I’m always sure that I’ve seen them before.
The two tpbs I read had two artists, Juan Bobillo and Paul Pelletier, and while both do good work, I like Bobillo’s stuff much better in this series. His rounded characters seem more human, which fits the gentler tone of Slott's writing.
We’ve got a customer who comes in and he reeks of tobacco; I’m not sure if it’s cigarettes, or a pipe, or chew, or what, but he smells up the whole place. He was in yesterday just as we were closing, and after he left me and the other guy working, Scott, talked about how much this guy smells. I said that I guessed the guy must smoke a hell of a lot, to which Scott responded, “No, I know people who smoke constantly and they don’t smell like that. That guy smells like he smokes and then takes all his ashtrays and dumps them in a plastic bag and pours water into it and then pours it over his head.”
Well, it made me laugh.
And finally, here’s a link to a slideshow of Thor rolling a joint
. Watch the whole thing, it gets funnier as it goes.
