Flaphack #10: The final hack! How about a delicious, fluffy pillow for all of your pancake dreams?
dennys are you ok
I should note that this is only done with unsold pancakes at the end of the night, and is intended as a suggestion for the homeless, who collect the pancakes from the back of the restaurants after closing.
WCW: Lucy Liu…can kick ass and look sexy while doing it.
How has she not aged?
And the first person to say “Ancient Chinese Secret” gets a bop in the snoot.
Via Jane! Stop this crazy thing!
The question everyone’s been asking is “When will Build-A-Bear Workshop release the next pony?”
The answer is APRIL 4th, and it’s not “pony” it’s PONIES!
Rarity will be released along with Cutie mark Crusaders Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo in mini-form, like Spike was.
That leaves only Applejack, who will almost certainly come out alongside Applebloom.
And then Doctor Whooves, right?
Hey, I can dream.
This is from the latest mail-order catalog, not even up on the website yet!
mscotter83 asked: If Will had you on Table Top, what game would you want to play?
Do you think he would let me play the Goosebumps boardgame with the moving graveyard pieces?
I am giving you the hardest look of disapproval right now, Neil.
BUT LOOK HOW SPOOKY
Sorry, but if you want to talk rotating graveyard pieces, I have to go with Lakeside’s Haunted Mansion game.
I just went on about it the other day.
I think I’m judging you a little, Wil. Don’t underestimate those kid’s games.
If you knock Dark Tower, for example, I shall have to ask you to step outside.
FACT OF THE DAY: zebras’ stripes are not always black and white. sometimes they are black and orange

I KNOW there’s a picture of Shere Khan Facepalming out there, I just can’t find it.
Pretend I did.
Cheers and admiration for Kate, Rian, our pals at BOOM! Studios, and the little girl who we hope will grow up to be the World’s #1 Cartoonist.
Today I witnessed something amazing. Almost in stark contrast to yesterday, today I saw tangible impact of lady-representation in comics.
At the bookstore I work at, we have a dedicated Adventure Time section. This family came in and those kids were SO EXCITED to see their favourite characters in comics. I talked them through each OGN and series compilation, explaining what they all were and in what order they should be read, and this little girl’s entire life was changed. You could see it on her face.
The moment I mentioned Kate Leth (and that, yes, she is a girl.) this little girl’s face lit up like Christmas morning. I don’t know if it just never occurred to her that girls can work in comics but the excitement and wonder that left the store in her was a privilege to see. I ended up selling them the Fionna & Cake’s, all the OGN’s, and an AT doodle book. She left begging her dad to help her learn how to draw Marceline comics. (And he was happy to comply!)
Kate Leth has left an everlasting impression on this little girl just by existing and working in the industry. I honestly hope to someday be able to see such an impact on someone from my own work. Ladies in comics is important. The representation on the page, and behind them, is important. Having a reflection of yourself in the content you enjoy is important. I hope that little girl grows up to be a famous comic author someday.
It was a very good day.
It’s wonderful when one of those “Everything you know is wrong” moments goes in a good way.

I like it - very Mad Magazine.
This is an actual thing you can buy from the WWE.
It’s a baby version of their new Brock Lesnar shirt.
It’s adorable, but it becomes brain-cripplingly hilarious if you know that Brock suffered from diverticulitis while in the UFC.
I’ve started playing GI JOE Battleground, the mobile game, which is pretty damn good.
But it got me thinking about the ORIGINAL GI Joe movie, which was wonderful and AFAIC, still holds up. The opening song was spectacular, and probably took about 15% of the budget.
After the virulent reaction to the death of Optimus Prime in the Transformers Movie the year previous, they changed their mind about killing Duke. But god forbid they spend any money animating a new sequence - as Duke gets his dramatic death scene, closes his eyes and just fades away, a hastily dubbed in off-screen voice says “He’s slipped into a coma!”
Likewise, after the big fight at the end, over an establishing shot of The Pit, another ADR session brought us the line “Hey, everybody, it’s Doc - Duke just snapped out of his coma!”
Some moments of the Oculus trailer remind me of the final scenes of The God Complex.
I am still hoping Karen Gillan shows up on Raw or at Wrestlemania to push the film - it’s produced by WWE Studios after all.
Can you imagine her and Sheamus hooking up?
With Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel out this weekend, here’s a look at a mad little thing called HOTEL! starring Peter Capaldi, Paul McGann, and a number of British actors who haven’t played Doctor Who.
And by “Look”, I mean, “The whole movie”.

Thorin: All right, we’ll get one more.
