Links Roundup for 6/11/2011

Here we go again!

1) FDA Dietary Guidelines of the Past; or, When Butter was a Food Group.

2) A stop-motion short made with knitted figures.

3) It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it: mocking anyone using the term "chemical free".

4) Basic Instructions continues to be my favorite webcomic. Here's a classic for you.

5) A Softer World is still funny. (Bonus points if you catch the mouse-over text reference!)

Speaking of web-based humor, there now apparently exist two Doctor Who mashup blogs worth following:

6a) A Doctor World (based on A Softer World, as referenced above)

6b) Texts from the Tardis (combines Doctor Who screencaps with actual texts from Texts from Last Night). NOTE: very NSFW texts!

And now a bonus bunch of links I've already tossed up on twitter and/or facebook, but repeat here for people who didn't catch them that way:

7) If I had to choose a form of graffiti to support, I choose the one in red.

8) An amazing personal story of an ER doctor on duty in Joplin during the massive tornado.


10) Muppet/Star Wars action figures exist? Awesome!

11) Guaranteed to be the cutest thing you've seen in ages: a little kid racing an otter at the zoo.

12) Finally, the only reasonable explanation for those infernal Star Wars prequels.
