Strange day out here at Windswept Fields

Richie Tennebaum

Perhaps the best fake magazine cover in the history of cinema

Who knew the Baumer suffered his meltdown in 1994? One of saddest days in fictional sports.

The Royal Tenenbaums is now out on an awesome Criterion Collection Blu-Ray. A must own.

The Jam – “In The City”

Had to share this excellent clip of The Jam performing “In The City” on Tony Wilson‘s music show “So It Goes”.

Originally broadcast on November 20, 1977, so you know it’s quality.

Putting your iPad in a Blender

witz.org loves his shiny new Apple iPad, and would never subject it to the still popular “Will It Blend?” meme. Fun seeing one get chopped to hell, though.

Video Proof: Michael Jackson still alive

Shocking video proof that the King of Pop faked his own death.

UPDATE: Revealed as a hoax from some German TV outlet. Shocking.

Pharaoh Wacko Jacko

egyptian-bust-jacko

The Pharaoh of Pop doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as King of Pop, but visitors to Chicago’s Field Museum could swear that’s Jacko’s face on a 3,000-year-old Egyptian bust. 

The spitting image limestone sculpture has been on display at the museum since 1988, but recently started drawing attention because of its likeness to Michael Jackson — complete with disfigured nose.

Pinky Cubans

For years now, when we listened to the 1994 Morrissey hit single “Now My Heart Is Full”, I thought the song’s refrain referred to “Pinky Cubans”. I was saddened to recently find out that alas, the line is “Pinkie, Cubitt”, referring to characters in Graham Greene‘s novel Brighton Rock.

Apparently misheard lyrics are a cottage industry, as a website called “Kiss This Guy”, has a huge database of them.

What are your favorite misheard lyrics? Leave them in the comments…

Hipster Grifter Kari Ferrell Speaks!

kari-ferrell-hipster-grifter

Good work! Bucky Turco landed the exclusives of exclusives, photographing and interviewing the infamous Kari Ferrell, she of “Hipster Grifter” fame (also seen in Gawker, Salt Lake City’s Most Wanted, Vice Magazine, etc).

Coaxing not only a video confession where Kari admits to past wrongs, but also an odd photoshoot, where Kari poses with traffic cones, websites, and flat screens – all while wearing the latest in Married to the Mob finery.

Like Shooting Phish In A Barrel

Phish.

Over $1 Million in illegal drugs seized at Phish Reunion(!)

Really? SHOCKING. That’s some A+ investigative police work there. Note to cops: we hear Willie Nelson might sometimes carry a stash as well…

In response to our post about a crucial, missed penalty in last Sunday’s Superbowl, witz.org reader Brandon Freeberg, a lifelong Pittsburgh Steelers fan, sent us the photo above, and the following message:

OH MY GOD, WHY WASN’T A FACE-MASK PENALTY CALLED FOR THIS????? THIS GAME HAD TO HAVE BEEN RIGGED. OH GOD, AND BABY JESUS!
