  • This may be the work of one “Johnny Marbles.”
  • Guy who says “This is an outrage!” at conclusion of attack. How delightfully British!
  • The Murdoch-owned Fox News is showing this clip on repeat like it’s the David Tyree helmet-catch, except instead of David Tyree it’s Wendi Deng and instead of a football it’s her fist catching some young scamp’s face.

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores.

Anyway, she took the bait today, good job, guys!
