coyote laughs

Coyote Loves Me.

When I used my "Coyote Laughs" icon on my post about the Hot Smoked Sausage prank, I thought to myself, "Oh, that's just asking for trouble. Somehow, some way, that's going to wind up biting you on the ass."

Well, I had one of those sausages for lunch, and another for dinner.

I've been fighting off the remains of the flu for the last few days, and when I'm not feeling my best, my stomach sometimes has trouble digesting certain things.

Like capsaicin.

Let's just say that particular bit of foresight was more literal than I expected.

The Hoard Potato: Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

In an obscure comment on TV Tropes, I read a rumor that part of Fox's motivation in the Watchmen suit may be to leverage Warner into finally clearing up the DVD rights tangle on the Adam West Batman series.

If this gets resolved with "We'll let you release Watchmen if you let us release Batman on DVD", that's a win/win in my book, and Fox might actually be forgiven their trespasses on the comics community.

Bear in mind the source -- this is an unattributed wiki comment about a rumor. I'm not even sure if there are rights issues with Digital Distribution of Dozier's Dynamic Duo: the Movie based on the series has been out in several editions over the years.
