Oh, y'know what? Nice work BBC.
They contacted the estate of Bob Marley wanting to schedule two days of interviews with him.
"It said the project would involve Marley -- who died of cancer in May 1981 at the age of 36 -- "spending one or two days with us", and that "it would only work with some participation from Bob Marley himself"."
A week or so ago I was trying to think of some of these
Redd Foxx "Confucius Say" lines that Tosborn always used to say...
Man who run in front of car get tired.
Man who run behind car get exhausted.
Man who walk through airport turnstile sideways going to Bangkok.
Man who eat many prunes get good run for money.
Baseball is wrong: man with four balls cannot walk.
Panties not best thing on earth! But next to best thing on earth.
Man who fight with wife all day get no piece at night.
It take many nails to build crib, but one screw to fill it.
Man who stand on toilet is high on pot.
Man with hole in pocket feel cocky.
Man who live in glass house should change clothes in basement.
Man who fish in other man's well often catch crabs.
Man who fart in church sit in own pew.
Crowded elevator smell different to midget.
Here's a crazy optical illusion that will blow your freaking mind.
You gotta stare at the green dot in the middle. Read the instructions...
Dunno if you saw Google Gulp today (being April 1st).
Obviously a jab at their own G-Mail scheme:
7. How can I get my hands on a Google Gulp?
This "limited release" beta product is available to anyone who turns in a used Google Gulp bottle cap at any local retailer. If you don't have any Gulp caps, ask a friend to give you one.
8. What if none of my friends have a Gulp cap to give me? Can't you just give Google Gulp to anyone who wants it?
Well, we're thinking about it, but, um, you have to understand that there are many considerations which go into deciding how to distribute --
9. I mean, isn't this whole invite-only thing kind of bogus?
Dude, it's like you've never even heard of viral marketing.
