‘My Little Brony’ Dolls: Friendship is Manly

‘My Little Brony’ Dolls: Friendship is Manly
For some reason, My Little Pony reminds me of the Powerpuff Girls. It’s probably because of their usage of bright colors or the fact that their larger-than-life fanbase includes unusual members, most notably grown-up men who probably aren’t who the shows’ producers were targeting.

Disney to Release One Star Wars Film Each Year Starting in 2015: Geeks Rejoice!

Soup Straw Chopsticks Do Double Duty for Slurping

Soup Straw Chopsticks Do Double Duty for Slurping
Noodles don’t taste just as good without the soup. That’s the thing I don’t like about chopsticks. They’re fine for picking up meat and veggies and for cramming noodles into your mouth, but unless you’ve got a soup spoon, then you’re left slurping the soup up from the bowl.
