The Future is Now

Well last night certainly was exciting! It was a once-in-a-lifetime historical experience that we witnessed and will be talking about for years to come. Someday we will all be sitting around reminiscing about where we were and who we were with when it happened. I'm talking, of course, about when CNN unveiled its new Virtual View "Via Hologram" remote interview technique:

There I was, minding my own democratic business watching those blue state numbers pile up, when suddenly Wolf Blitzer beamed a distant correspondent into his studio for an interview. She even faded-in with an electronic poof, like Spock on Star Trek. Seriously, see it for yourself here:

The truth, or course, is that it was hardly a hologram at all. They simply used synced-up motion control cameras at two different locations to create the illusion. So Wolf was actually staring at nothing. Via Hologram, indeed.

In other exciting CNN news... man discovers a mouse in his buns!

***FATTY SEZ*****

Nothing worse than the Dems winning control of "the house" and the rainbow parade cheering them on. I would rather eat that mousedog than watch those semi soft homoerotic elections results again. Dan you must of gotten girl drink drunk with gay aiken

Oh god. Now I had to go and research this mouse thing, and the breadmakers are saying that it's "pan accumulation" - not a mouse. But rather hardened dough. WHATEVER.

not sure what's worse?
the actual mouse or Fatty, the ignora-mouse...

I've been rediscovering Morrissey this week, so now I have "You're the one for Me, Fatty" in my head.

Why didn't they hazard cutting the bun, or even just trying to peal the dough away a little? Were they trying to keep up the suspense? It wouldn't be news otherwise? Is this supposed to be like a Christ sighting in a taco? This is obviously more interesting than the fake holograms. I mean who fakes holograms?

The questions baffle the mind!
