Nothing like combining passions. I found a great page that discusses both
cheese and Lego concurrently! If it's green and stuck to your Lego, it could
be snot, Playdoh, or cheese...try the taste test!

I'm wondering if the monster bunnies come from Chernobyl. Scientists say they
haven't found any two-headed mice, but have they investigated the area after
dark? They could discover the newest cool thing: glow in the dark pets.

I've long remarked that the major reason videophones didn't take off when
first invented in the 1960s is that people don't necessarily want to be

of your image to really make it popular.  The Jetsons had a similar
