This Might Not End Well of the Day: Last week, members of the 4chan-affiliated hacktivist collective known as “Anonymous” (once again) set their sights on the controversial hate-mongering congregation of the Westboro Baptist Church, issuing an open letter which calls on the church to “[c]ease & desist your protest campaign in the year 2011” or “meet with the vicious retaliatory arm of ANONYMOUS.”
The letter goes on to warn that “the damage incurred will be irreversible, and neither your institution nor your congregation will ever be able to fully recover.”
Yesterday, the WBC replied with an open letter of its own, egging the “anonymous coward crybaby ‘hackers’” to “bring it.” WBC’s youth leader Megan Phelps-Roper took to Twitter to thank Anonymous for their threats, adding that “Your efforts to shut up God’s word only serve to publish it further.”

Adorable Abomination of the Day: A rare “panda cow” — a miniature cow with panda markings — born last Friday in Larimer County, Colorado, is said to be one of only 24 in the whole world.
Farmer Chris Jessen, who breeds mini-cows as pets, says panda calves can sell for $30,000, which isn’t that much considering YOU GET TO OWN A PANDA COW.
One-Question IQ Test of the Day
From The Manbottle Library:
There is a mute who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one’s teeth, he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.
Now, if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself?
Think about it, and then click through (and scroll down) for the answer.
Did you get it right? Liar!
