Why do I keep hearing the "Merry Melodies" cartoon theme in the background?

Like Col. Sherman Potter said on M*A*S*H*..."Well, ya won't see this hangin' in the "Leew-ver"

I would have hoped for Magna-Doodle, because that's more of an accurate representation of what he has "done for us" thus far, and his administration. Actually, his cabinet has been created from Silly Putty.

I was thinking Mr. Potato Head would be more appropriate.

No, I say we leave it at Rubik's cube...

1). Most everyone bought into the hype.

2). He's a puzzle.

3). He doesn't want anyone to figure him out.

4). The object is to get all one color on the same side.

Ok, dumbazz, hurry up and die already. You're wasting good oxygen and space. Oh, do the world a favor and get cremated so you don't take up space in the ground. Thank you for your consideration.

I gave my daughters each an etch and sketch for Christmas and my three year old wanted to to know how to turn it on.

A great uncle of mine worked for Ohio Art, the makers of Etch-A-Sketch. It's called using a magnet from the topside of the screen, which draws the etching "mechanism" to the backside of the screen....Much the same principle as when you sign your name on a card reader at a grocery store. You can't backtrack a line that meticulously with an Etch-A-Sketch.

Well that makes a lot more sense. I didn't think it was possible to make that type of shading and detail using the janky little knobs. But then again, I never sat down and tried to create real art with an Etch-a-Sketch before. Looks cool though.
