Gullible, party of one.
I'd thought about how he could possibly pull it off. I figured they must have created some sort of movable cage that would move along with Phelps' speed but still keep him protected from his predatory opponent.
Imagine my disappointment when Phelps dove into the water and the shark was COMPUTER GENERATED.
Also, Phelps wore a shark-type flipper, which isn't as terrible as some sort of illegal performance enhancing drug, but come on.
And then, to top it off, PHELPS LOST.
In the end it was a bunch of mathematical equations that could have been done in the Discovery Channel offices.
Switching gears, I am a big fan of podcasts and I've written about one of my favorites before, the Popcast. The hosts, Knox and Jamie, talk for one hour a week about "the things that entertain but do not matter," which are my favorite kinds of things. I wrote a post years ago about Matt's belief that the words to The Circle of Life are "oh my God, a penguin and a llama." and then how I submitted his interpretation to their episode about misheard song lyrics and it stole the show.
Well, The Popcast posted this picture from their live show a few weeks ago. Two fans actually took Matt's misheard lyrics, put them on a shirt, AND WORE THEM TO THE SHOW.
I've never met any of the people in this photo but I feel like I need to frame it and hang it in our living room.
A few weeks ago my mom and Emily and I went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. As we walked in my mom said, "Oh girls, I meant to tell you, I've decided to like elephants," which was perfect because the first thing we saw was a wildlife photography exhibit with elephants aplenty.
I don't know much about art, but I know what I think is pretty. We wandered around for a few hours, had lunch in the little cafe, and then decided to check out the modern art before we headed home.
Modern art is something that I don't really understand.
Apparently I'm not the only one, because the guard at one exhibit said to us, "Please don't ask me any questions about these pieces. I don't even understand them. That one is just a piece of rope hanging from the ceiling. It's called 'Rope Hanging From the Ceiling.' Do you believe that? I really just want to go home."
My mom is a fourth grade teacher, and when she saw this one, she said, "If one of my students left the chalkboard looking like that, I'd tell them it's unacceptable, go clap those erasers and do it again."
Also, while we were there Emily got a breaking news alert that Beyonce had named her twins, Rumi and Sir. My mom said, "You know what Beyonce needs to do? She needs to go grocery shopping and clean a toilet and then tell me what she names her kids."
Someone needs to put that on a t-shirt.
