The Savage Sword of Upchuck

One of the greatest fantasy writers ever was born this day 104 years ago: Robert E. Howard, who created the immortal Upchuck the Barbarian! (at left). Way to go, Bob-man! This giant-size alter ego (click on it) was available only on the Daria's Inferno CD-Rom game. We all know what Charles thinks of it.

The most famous television commercial in the history of the entire cosmos was aired this day 26 years ago. I actually saw it during the Super Bowl. I was in shock for hours. Check it out.

Two years ago this day, the awesome Slobbergoat created the Daria version of a popular Internet meme. See what you think of it.

Moar when I figure out what to post. How are you doing?

Mongol General: Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good, but what is best in life?

Mongol: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair.

Mongol General: Wrong! Upchuck! What is best in life?

Upchuck: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their feisty women.

Mongol General: That is good! That is good.
