Links for 10.30.08: Country Joe the Plumber, Lil Wayne gets nasty, Bono on Facebook…

by Josh Kimball

*Country: Joe the Plumber (aka Samuel Wurzelbacher) has a booking agent and a PR agency, and is considering entering the world of country music as a recording artist. [wired]

*The Miracle of Birth: Rapper Lil Wayne apparently helped deliver his second child recently. His commentary on the matter follows. “I delivered him. I held the left leg the whole time. It was nasty, very nasty, but it was wonderful.”

*Facebook: Those pictures of BONO with two 19-year-old girls in bikinis made it into the wild thanks to inept privacy setting management by one of the ladies in question. [all facebook]

*Pasterolling: Go here and copy/paste the symbol, please. [waxy]

*Disturbia: A collection of videos of little kids singing Katy Perry’s magnum opus, “I Kissed a Girl.” Sometimes I’m not sure what motivates people to put the things on YouTube that they do. Like Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend.”

*Mashups: Waxy looks at Girl Talk’s official sample list. (Wikipedia users identified about 75% of the samples before this list came out.)

*Politics: The Economist endorses Barack Obama. Whoa. Since when did the Economist start endorsing socialist candidates? [mefi]
