This is not your mother’s periodic table. (…It’s funny if your mother is a chemistry teacher.) Look closely for elements like “podium”, “goofinium”, and “jazz.”

Ever read On Beyond Zebra? Dr. Seuss’ letters have their own Unicode extensions. My inner typeface geek (okay, it isn’t that far in) is flailing.

Speaking of geekery: a handy guide for getting into P. G. Wodehouse. Jeeves and all.

Opening titles to a vintage Krazy Kat cartoon. In fact, it turns out there’s a good mattering of Krazy on YouTube, including several animations by Herriman himself. Hand-drawn. In 1916.

Media personalities as Harry Potter characters. Jon and Stephen are Fred and George, and more. (I lol’d at Malcom Gladwell as Professor Trelawney.)

Speaking of the news, Sarah Palin’s farewell speech explained: it’s slam poetry! Masterfully performed here by William Shatner.

Gladwell as Trelawney? Seriously? Why not like, Sylvia Browne or someone actually appropriate? Or some crazy conservative commentator? I’m not the biggest Gladwell fan ever but at least he’s sane.

I think it’s a combination of “making wacky predictions that can turn out to be surprisingly accurate” and “having foofy hair.”

If you ask me, though, I think the Fleur Delacour comparison takes the cake. :P
