…Cafe Serre tells the tale of one lucky cop?

Cafe Serre

Café Serré is short (even for a short) but it’s also a nicely animated 3D tale of one lucky cop and his time at the cafe:

…It’s TGI Friday: Where’s An Egg?

Where's An Egg?

Where’s An Egg? has Russian instructions, 1970s graphics, and is surprisingly fun considering those two don’t often combine for much good.

In this hard-boiled adventure game, you must help the Boise police find a missing egg. Not in Mancuso’s garage? Try Brodermaker’s gymbag. Everyone’s a suspect when “Where’s an Egg?” is the game that you are playing. And that’s the game!!

NOTCOT called it her favorite Flash game ever, and it’s definitely one of the most unique, so give it a shot and see how you do.

…Michael Millhouse looks great in photos?

Lewiston Tribune

You just can’t make this stuff up!

On December 14, the Lewiston Tribune put a surveillance camera photo on their front page of a man in a black-and-blue checkered coat that had stolen the wallet of an unaware convenience-store customer.

Directly above that picture, the Lewiston Tribune put a photo of Michael Millhouse decorating a window with holiday spirit.

In a black-and-blue checkered coat!

Police quickly made the connection, and Michael was arrested on charges of theft.

Talk about good timing!

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Meth Rocket?

Meth Rocket

Though it’s not exactly a performance improvement, two crafty drug runners from Missouri sure did do some tricky modifications to their vehicle. Though their plan seemed foolproof, their execution surely was not.

The ‘meth rocket’ that they designed was supposed to fly out of their trunk if they were stopped by the cops, and was activated by a series of pulleys and the car’s cigarette lighter.

Unfortunately for them, their rocket didn’t go skyward when the red and blues started flashing, and they were pulled over in possession of two pounds of methamphetamines and 41 Viagra tablets.

Sounds like quite the party.

…Buildering is dangerous?

Today’s word of the day is Buildering (a play on words from Bouldering I assume), which means “the act of climbing on (usually) the outside of buildings and other artificial structures.”

You may have seen Alain Robert, aka The Real-Life Spider-Man, climbing to the top of skyscrapers and bridges under the arrestful eyes of the local police, but Buildering is typically less flashy, and usually takes place closer to the ground. Check out the video to see what I mean:
