More from the boys in Lagos

I get lots of spam, both in my email and in the comments here at Ratlands.  Most of it is junk.  Most of the Ratlands comment spam is for various mail-order pharmaceuticals.  And, I get a few of the classic 419 scams (you are promised a commission for helping some person transfer funds out of […]

I’ve just recently started seeing this Burger King commercial.  The whole Spongebob square butt thing is creepy, but I just can’t get my head around the idea that someone thought the phrase “booty is booty” was a good idea in an ad for a 99¢ kids meal. This, on the other hand is how you […]
