A famous Israeli writer, David Grossman, wrote a whole song (a rap, actually) based on Israeli bumper stickers. Israel is an intense place and so the politics are intense and yes, even the bumper stickers. The idea of writing a whole song based on bumper stickers… genius, if you ask me.
I’ve made a resolution only to post things here that elicit a relatively strong emotional reaction in me. So, here you go. I found this through Mashable.
The site is called Instant Oil Spill. Geez, everything has to be instant these days, doesn’t it… On the front page it says:
That’s right, now you can have all the same disregard for the environment (albeit virtual) that big oil does everyday! Why should they get to have all the fun?
Simply enter the web address of the site you’d like to contaminate and watch the spill happen.
Note: This doesn’t really harm other websites. We’re not complete a**holes! ;)
Check out the site and entre a URL into the space to watch the oil spill take over the site. Good times, ay?

Today being Canada Day and all, and me being a very proud Canadian, I’ve been waiting to come across something smart enough to post here. Finally my dear cousin posted this amazing list of very amusing quotes about Canada. Read the whole list here. And here are a few of my faves:
Canada is the greatest nation in this country. – Former Toronto mayor Allan Lamport
Your majesty, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, and Madame Houde thanks you from her bottom too. – Montreal Mayor Camillien Houde (in 1939 to King George VI)
As always, Canada will now bury its war dead, just as the rest of the world, as always, will forget its sacrifice, just as it always forgets nearly everything Canada ever does. It seems that Canada’s historic mission is to come to the selfless aid both of its friends and of complete strangers, and then, once the crisis is over, to be well and truly ignored. Canada is the perpetual wallflower that stands on the edge of the hall, waiting for someone to come and ask her for a dance.- Kevin Myers (The Daily Telegraph, London)
A constitution nursed upon the oxygen of our bright winter atmosphere makes its owner feel as though he could toss about the pine trees in his glee. – Lord Dufferin
Canadians have been so busy explaining to the Americans that we aren’t British, and to the British that we aren’t Americans that we haven’t had time to become Canadians. – Helen Gordon McPherson
Oh, what a country! – Deena :)

This is a bumper sticker seen recently in Israel (translated from Hebrew):
“We demand an international investigation to determine why the US built two tall towers that interfered with a humanitarian peace flight by al Quaeda on 9/11.”
BTW, I don’t even know if this bumper sticker really exists but still someone somewhere thought of this line which is oh so smart and in this case, that is what matters.
This video is done very artistically.
