This Week In Internet: The Polar Bear Lives, but the Chinese Man Dies

I thought this New Yorker piece, "The Wisdom of Children," was truly hilarious.  Here's an excerpt from Part I, "A Conversation at the Grownup Table, as Imagined at the Kids’ Table:"

FRIEND FROM WORK: Hey, guess what! My voice is pretty loud!
DAD: (laughing) There are actual monsters in the world, but when my kids ask I pretend like there aren’t.
MOM: I’m angry! I’m angry all of a sudden!
DAD: I’m angry, too! We’re angry at each other!
MOM: Now everything is fine.
DAD: We just saw the PG-13 movie. It was so good.

So this week's theme is for the kids: A Day At Elementary School.

English
Slogan generator mixes a random thing with a random advertising slogan.  Some of the better results it generated for me:

Incest: Reach out and touch someone
Venereal disease: Get the sensation
Nerve gas: Betcha can't eat just one
Hepatitis: Yeah, we've got that

School's out, kids.  Have a good weekend.
