Randomosity: Frivolous Lawsuit Edition

Every frivolous lawsuit should be handled this way. Funny site The Oatmeal had their stuff stolen by another site, and then that other site had the audacity demand $20K for what The Oatmeal said about them. And then things got hilarious.

I make decent stove-top popcorn (when I’m not munching on my favorite dieting crutch, SmartPop 100 calorie bags), but this is an even better method than the one I use – definitely going to try it soon (via LifeHacker).

    What a mess that Oatmeal/FunnyJunk debacle is. I hope that lawyer just goes away and lets The Oatmeal get back to the funny!

    And thank you, thank you, thank you for the Mad Men photos. Any day of mine that starts off looking at Don Draper is bound to be a good one.
