Bowing to the whims of a publisher, Amazon remotely deleted thousands of copies of 1984 and Animal Farm from people’s Kindles. Sure, they were also reimbursed. But the irony here couldn’t be much less subtle. Read More ›

You can understand the English, but the Welsh part reads, “I am not in the office at the moment. Send any work to be translated.” This is why you should never trust the internet for your road sign translation needs. View Image ›
The AFP photoservice ran an image taken from Tina Fey’s SNL performance last weekend as an actual picture of Governor Palin. Hey, I mean, they do look alike. But Amy Poehler ain’t no Katie Couric. View Image ›
