MISCELLANEOUS MERRIMENT:

Here is a soundboard with the various noises one hears from a devoted audience member at an art-house movie. [Wonder-Tonic]

Jonathan Poritsky wrote about a frivolous lawsuit that someone filed against “Drive” for having a misleading trailer and for being anti-Semitic. The attorney representing the case — Martin H. Leaf — posted insane comments in response. It’s pretty awesome. [The Candler Blog]

Another good reason to read Kris Straub’s webcomic Chainsawsuit regularly. [Chainsawsuit]

This awkward “Wheel of Fortune” moment is the result of clever editing and didn’t really happen, but it’s funny. Timing is everything. [YouTube]
