Links for 12.20.09: Let it be.

*Words: If you know me, you are probably aware of the fact that I don’t believe in definitions. To wit: This. Additionally, here are the year’s buzzwords. I’m a big fan of Great Recession, but I think teabagging should have gotten its own entry (not just as an extension of “Tea Party.”)

*Humanity: Google Maps India gives directions by landmarks, since many roads aren’t clearly marked with their names. [waxy]

*Food: These photographs depicting last meals of death row inmates by James Reynolds are rather cold. [coudal]

*Beer: Heineken once designed its bottles to work as bricks? (Older, link, but I mean, it’s a beer bottle that’s also a brick.)

*Video: Watch this video showing how holiday music can be played on a washing machine. I haven’t used a washing machine in years. Also, I need to buy a new refrigerator. [notcot]

*Art: Doodling improves your concentration. I drew a Charlie Brown figure flying in a recent HR meeting. FYI. [marginal revolution] Also, if you feel like time has passed quickly, you had fun. That meeting felt long.

*Local: Slate takes on The Replacements’ “Let It Be” on its 25th anniversary. Unrelated to this link, I despise Slate. With great vigor.

*Today’s links: F

Video: Teabagging day – INNUENDO

Whatever your political persuasion, there can be no doubt that this is INNUENDO at its most aggressive. Like. WOW. (I’m not even sure if this is “real,” but the wordplay is sensational, nonetheless.)

WORDS: Butterfaith, work hot, the full Ginsburg and teabagging

The Boston Globe covers the language beat, defining, among other slang terms [parentdish]:

Bluetool: Someone always wearing a Bluetooth, even when they’re not on the phone.

Butterfaith: A girl who is attractive by all accounts, except for her devout religiousness.

Work hot: A person who may or may not be attractive, but is the best-looking person at your workplace.

Also: “The full Ginsburg” = appearing on This Week, Meet the Press, Face the Nation, Fox News Sunday, Late Edition. [the nyer via kottke]

Also in the news: Teabagging’s Wikipedia site. (Funny that the entry “needs additional citations for verification.” Uh boy.) From the excellent entry (in the Miscellaneous section):

After numerous arrests for underage drinking at his concert, John Mayer jokingly threatened to teabag passed out concert goers in his blog:

“If I happen to be walking backstage and I see any of you young men passed out drunk on a stretcher, make no mistake about it, you will come-to in front of your disappointed parents with a face full of Sharpie and the sneaking suspicion that you’ve been teabagged by one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people of 2007.”
