Looking at these photos may cause an intese desire to go watch Christmas Vacation... multiple times. 'Is your house on fire, Clark?'  'No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights.'

So AT&T would like you to reach out to them with this iPhone app if you happen to hit a dead zone or if you become a dropped call victim. So how are you supposed to actually make the complaint when there isn't any service?

Seven of the most inexplicable character additions to television shows.Seven of the most inexplicable character additions to television shows.

...the writers some how thought it made perfect sense to introduce a futuristic floating green alien into the town of Bedrock. Add in the fact that only Barney, Fred, Pebbles and Bam-Bam can see or hear the alien, and the Great Gazoo essentially amounts to an imaginary friend.

Look for other Twitter themed accounts to get their own television shows if this one happens to take off. Which it might, because some of the posts are actually quite funny.

After 12 years of it I couldn't count the amount of times I've heard 'You're a wizard Harry'. It does wear a bit thin after a while. And I've heard all the puns about my wand.

Apparenly real craters left by meteors are not as tidy as this one was and that don't appear to have been dug out with a shovel. Oh well. See yesterday's batch of links for original story.
