WULAD Web Wround-Up
I don’t know who this guy is, but I suspect this is all a ploy to win the hearts of overweight American housewives. I mean, look at him—he's so sensitive!

This article is good news, of course—the uneven hot dog-to-bun ratio is one of the long-standing inequities in our society—but as a second-rate graphic designer, I must say that this story is accompanied by what has to be the lamest hot dog illustration money could buy. And to top it off, this abortion of a graphic is credited. Thanks, "CBS," whoever you are! (Click here for an example of a respectable hot dog illustration.)

This page is quite interesting, although I don’t understand exactly why it exists.

"A Norwegian man died parachuting off the Eiffel Tower after his parachute became tangled up in the metal structure, a French police source said." Fair enough, I thought, that’s a pretty gutsy way to go. But there’s more: "The 31-year-old jumped off the second floor of the structure on Monday night..." Wait—he died jumping off the second floor of the Eiffel Tower? How embarrassing.

Look at us! We're comedians! Craaaaaa-zy comedians!

That’s it. You can go back to putting up your America’s Next Top Model Finale Party decorations now.
