February 6 is a very newsworthy day in the history of celebrity conception. In 1931, Dan Ratherâ€™s parents got more riled up than a three-legged cow in a milk jug, conceiving the future CBS anchorman. And one extremely early morning in 1950, the local weather for Jane Pauleyâ€™s parents was fertile. Happy conception day, Dan and Jane!
Also conceived today: John Keats (1795), John Candy (1950)
If Piper’s McDonald’s Sim game didn’t satisfy your appetite for online fast food fun, maybe this will.
Remember that creepy Burger King commercial last night where women wearing Whopper-ingredient-costumes all piled on top of one another? Well, if you go here you can make your own Whopper sandwich featuring the Whopperettes. I honestly can’t believe I just wrote that sentence.
I’m not sure what the best part of this site is. Brooke Burke. The King dancing on the side of the screen. The Send to a Friend option. Seriously. If a friend of mine ever sent me an online video of a sandwich he designed, we’d have to have a looooooooong talk.
After logging about eight hours on Chibi-Robo in the last four days, my eight-year-old daughter has decreed it to be the best title ever for the Nintendo GameCube. Chibi-Robo is a four-inch-tall domestic cleaning robot, a gift to a young girl from her father, an out of work roboticist. Besides attending to tasks like scrubbing up muddy dog prints off the floor with a toothbrush (and accumulating "Happy Points" for doing so), Chibi-Robo explores the house, learning snippets of a meta-story involving a no-good robotics company out to harm the family.
I feel sorry for Chibi-Robo. Couldn’t they at least give it a mop?
Finally, a cheat sheet for the grueling interview process of becoming a McDonald’s employee. Tell your mom you’re practicing for your new job and spend some time with this Unofficial McDonald’s Sims game (word to A Welsch View)
According to CNN, online job hunting is getting trickier. The trouble is due to new federal guidelines meant to standardize how employers track data on the diversity of their job-applicant pool. And links to porn.
How do you make a really cool scene from an amazingly cool movie even cooler? Easy. Add Super Mario Bros. sound effects.

Eva Longoria is on Oprah because she bought a house for her parents, and she’s asked Oprah’s decorator to fix it up. (Her parents initially put the outdoor furniture she bought for them inside the house.) Her mother said that she always dreamed of having a leather couch, while her father seems to prefer deer heads. Oh, by the way, Eva can skin a deer. Marry her now, Tony!

From Pro-G (via Engadget):
A man running a counterfeit piracy operation, selling games, CDs and DVDs from his ice cream van has been convicted. William Agnew from South Lanarkshire was sentenced at Hamilton Sheriff Court after admitting to the offences. 4,000 DVDs, CDs and games (PlayStation, Xbox and PC) were seized during a raid on the man’s business premises. The goods, if sold new, are estimated to be worth in the region of Â£100,000.
By the looks of his truck, I say he was asking for it.
