Donny and Marie do Star Wars

This vid is a classic, in a strange and too-awful-not-to-watch way.  

Donny and Marie Osmond have a go at making Star Wars a musical, starring as Luke and Leia.  Somehow they manage to drag Kris Kristofferson into the act, hamming it up as Han Solo.  Meanwhile, a platoon of Storm Troopers dance and sing Motown and showtune classics while R2-D2 panics.  It may have been the 70s, but still, there can be no excuse for this level of showtime disaster.

Remember, Luke and Leia did turn out to be brother and sister – maybe the Osmonds were on to something way before the rest of us.

Resign sweetly from your job by cake

This is one unusual way to hand in your notice at work.

cake-resignation

Neil Berrett sugared the pill of his departure from Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, San Francisco, by announcing his intentions in icing.

He posted a picture of the huge baked message on Flickr , the photo sharing website.

In the letter, Mr Berrett wrote: “Dear Mr. Bowers – During the past three years, my tenure at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard has been nothing short of pure excitement, joy and whim.

“However, I have decided to spend more time with my family and attend to health issues that have recently arisen. I am proud to have been part of such an outstanding team and I wish this organization only the finest in future endeavors.

“Please accept this cake as notification that I am leaving my position with NWT on March 27. Sincerely, W. Neil Berrett”.

But get this, it doesn’t end there.  One of Berrett’s followers on Flickr used his intiative and offered Berrett’s employers a baked version of his CV!

He wrote: “Dear Mr. Bowers – I understand a position has recently become available and I would like you to consider me for the job.

“I am not entirely sure what it entails, but I am very smart, a quick learner and flexible. I am also able to recognize an opportunity as it presents itself and take advantage of it, even if it arrives disguised as a photo of a sheet cake.”

Bert is Evil

This site has all the evidence to prove what I have known all along.  Bert is evil.

Cadbury merge with Nestle?

What a stunning thing a wee merge between chocolate giants Cadbury and Nestle would be.

You are entering my dark place

Garth Marenghi ‘s Dark Place is an 80s sci-fi and medical drama unlike no other.

It features guest appearances from UK comedy genius team The Mighty Boosh and parodies low-budget 1980s telly shows – taking the mickey out of everything from sci-fi to fashion.  The SFX are particular impressive.

I think the Marenghi character is a bounce on horror novelist Stephen King.  How tres flattering, ahem.

You might recognise Richard Ayoade from the brilliant The IT Crowd, playing famous publisher Dean Learner.
