Gentlemen, start your Thetans [12 Jun 2006|12:14am]

I've recently started listening to Wait Wait Don't Tell Me again, after a long hiatus. I'm glad to be listening to it again, because it's funny -- I think it's the funniest thing I hear or watch on a regular basis -- but also because I hear about important news stories that I otherwise miss like this one, “Gentleman, start your thetans”.

Yes, Scientology is getting into NASCAR. Unfortunately there are no pics of the car, but we can infer from this description:

The hood of the car will say "Dianetics" on it, along with a volcano to mimic the book cover.

...that it will be ridiculous. And, as Wait Wait said (paraphrasing), "When the driver crashes, he won't be allowed to scream."

reddit.com: Sofa King ad. Read tagline out loud. [12 Jun 2006|12:38am]
I've been trying to figure out where the Sofa King sample comes from in the introduction to the Danger Doom song, "Sofa King". This doesn't answer the question, but it does bring home the joke which I -- no joke -- was totally missing before. Even though the end of the song makes it totally clear. Pfft.
