Australia has these beautifully coloured parrots called Lorikeets. As beautiful as they are, at this time of year they are also drunk!

Did you ever wonder why products need to have “Why do they think they need to tell us that” warnings? This article from Aol.com offers an explanation. And here’s the 2011 finalists in the Wacky Warning Labels.

How can you explain the love  parents have for their children? Rain Price’s parents, Dale and Rochelle, explain in a Yahoo.com article:

“The school bus for the first time ever came down our street this year,” explains Rain’s dad, Dale, to Utah’s Daily Herald. “This was [my son’s] first year on the bus. My wife came running in the room and suggested we go wave at him to embarrass him.”

Yes, by embarrassing your child. While in costume.  Every.  School.  Day.

And what else do you do? Why, you start a blog called wave at the bus showing each days costumes. Now that is love!

Wacky Wednesday – Random Stuff

Today’s Wacky Wednesday is links to things I found a bit wacky.

There is something for everyone, apparently, on the internet as this link to weird auction listings proves.

There is a web site that sells home-made items called Etsy, which begat the web site Regretsy who, according to their FAQ page, “is the fail blog of hand crafts”. Short on time? Here’s a slide show from Business Insider that highlights some of the, shall we say, more unique offerings from Etsy.

I was weirdly mesmerized by this video of Jello that was dropped onto a solid surface. If you like watching flames dancing, you may like Jello moving and grooving.

Wacky Wednesday – Royal Wedding 2011

Prince William will be marrying his love, Kate Middleton, on Friday, April 29th. There are many traditions when someone is getting married. And when one of the main members of England’s royal family (and future king) becomes engaged, the tradition of money-making merchandise wackiness quickly rolls into high gear. Here’s a list of some of the obvious and not-so-obvious merchandise and  souvenirs that can be yours, if the royal wedding spirit is willing and the wallet is able.

Are you a nerd? Love computers, mobile apps and games? PC World has compiled a  bucket list of 50 geeky things  for you or the nerd you love.

Fortune cookies. Always a source of enlightenment and entertainment in one little piece of paper. And riches if you did what these people did and played the lottery using the numbers found on those little pieces of paper. However, some fortunes just don’t make sense, as you can see in this article from BuzzFeed.

Do you need a distraction for a few minutes? You can play Rock-Paper-Scissors against a computer on The New York Times web site. Your opponent will be a novice or veteran and as the game progresses, you can see how the computer makes it’s choices based on your moves.

Many animals, as a form of protection, use camouflage to hide from predators. Let’s use this stink bug in Singapore as an example. Some people think it looks like Elvis. Others see Bert from Sesame Street. I’ll let you decide who the stink bug looks like and who it’s predator could be.

What do you do if you love show jumping but your family can’t afford a horse? Why, you train a cow, of course.

Hope your Wednesday is not that wacky, and if it is, the weekend is almost here.
