Are you threatening me? – Great Cornholio

Beavis and Butt-Head Great Cornholio Bobble Head

Beavis and Butt-Head Great Cornholio Bobble Head

From the Beavis and Butt-Head TV series, comes The Great Cornholio. Beavis' alter persona is just as crazy as he is! This 6-inch tall bobble head utters the following 5 unforgettable phrases when shaken (subject to change):
    "Are you threatening me?"
  • "Where I come from, we have no bunghole."
  • "I am the Great Cornholio!"
  • "I need T.P. for my bunghole."
  • "You will give me T.P., Bungholio?"

Price: $12.99

This is too good not share. Kudos to the mind behind this. Enjoy!

R.I.P. my Droid Eris, Hello iPhone 4s

Well, my Droid Eris isn't totally dead, but the screen is shattered. Thanks to my cat, or should I say my wife's cat, the Eris was the unwitting subject of a physics experiment. The cat decided to test Newton's 3rd law of motion and got to observe the force of gravity as the phone smashed onto the floor.

Now, I know the smartphones are pricey, which is why I had insurance on the phone. So I wasn't too worried. I knew it was covered and I also knew that I was due for an upgrade soon, if not already.

I headed down to my local Verizon store to check out my options.

I was told that there was a $99 deductible and I could get a new Droid Eris. Well, that would make me whole - minus $99 that is. So I asked what else I could do.

Well, lucky me I was eligible for an upgrade and even had a $50 upgrade credit. So for $159 I got a new 16GB iPhone 4s.

Well, I ordered a new 16 GB iPhone 4s. It should be here in a few weeks. So for now I'm using my busted Droid with a few layers of clear packing tape on the screen to minimize the lacerations to my thumbs while I wait.

I look forward to playing with the new phone when it arrives and I hope to use it post more regularly to this site.
