ESPN.com has a Spring Training Blog with quick hits and notes about activities at each Major League Baseball team’s spring training camp.
The post tonight about the New York Yankees’ pitcher Chien-Ming Wang and his bad foot had a headline that would send Beavis and Butthead (and me) into giggling fits.
YANKS’ WANG FEELING FINE (7:05 p.m. ET)
Chien-Ming Wang who missed the final 3½ months last season because of a foot injury, is on a restricted running program and will do most of his conditioning work indoors.
“Everything’s good,” said Wang, who threw off a bullpen mound Sunday.
In other Yankees news, CC Sabathia kept his beard on Day 2 of workouts, but it won’t last much longer. The Yankees have rules on allowable facial hair and length of hair.
“Our manager will handle it at some point,” general manager Brian Cashman said. “I don’t even think we’ve posted our team rules yet.”
Let’s hope the Yanks’ manager, Joe Girardi, will get around to handling Wang in addition to CC’s beard.
(This proves it. I have the sense of humor of a 13-year-old boy. By the way for those of you interested, the other critter in the picture up top is not a beaver. It’s a groundhog.)

I spent an entire afternoon back in the fall at CWage‘s abode perusing the Perry Bible Fellowship Almanack by Nicholas Gurewitch while he and Newscoma worked on her blog.
One word – hysterical.
I recently bumped into the link above to PBFA which has all the comic strips from the book.
Go spend some time there.
It’s Bart Simpson vs Captain Kirk or Lisa Simpson meets Spock.
Using a Theremin, a funnel and a Rhodes piano, a combination of The Simpsons and the Star Trek theme songs has been mashed together.
It’s not quite Gwen Stefani and the Soggy Bottom Boys, but it is different.
And how often do you get to see a Theremin in action.

Nothing makes Newscoma and me laugh harder than giant floating heads.
So you know exactly how much I was pleased to find a list of the 10 Greatest Floating Heads of All Time on OMGLists.
They cover everything from the Great Oz to Frylock to Jambi.
Here’s a little video clip to put you in the mood before you get your meckalecka hiney in gear and “head” over to check out all 10.
I want one NOW!!!!
Pretty Please !!!!
They have all varieties from shuffles to touches with three different Simpsons logos etched on.
They’re a bit pricier, but not a ton more than the regular cost and you get your name etched on it.
Cool beans, if you ask me.
Here‘s where you can order one for me.
I promise I’ll say “Thank you very much.”

In all my inntertubes wandering today, I ran across a group on flickr that is just for pics of tattoos of food. Unbelievably, the predominant food item among the 200+ pics of tats was cupcakes.
Here are a couple of my favorites.
I like this person’s good and evil theme.
Here’s another evil cupcake.
You can go to the Flickr group and see all the iced bakery delights and a variety of foods and cooking utensils I’d also never considered as potential tattoos.

It’s Spanish television.
The show is “Cruz y raya.com”
The skit involves a Simpsons skit with actors painted yellow sporting buggy pingpong ball eyes.
I thought the untooning pics of Homer I linked to were weird enough, but feast your eyes on this.
