Reality is still in beta test.

Right. I may not be fully awake enough to handle with this morning yet.

This started with a headline on For those unfamiliar with Fark, it's a site which collects links to sites it's users and moderators deem interesting -- news stories, flash games, porn, blog rants, whatever. It's not a news site, but I can think of worse places to bone up on current events.

The headline was something like "College Student creates sandwich topped with chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks and french fries. Named country's best sandwich by Maxim." I don't have the original headline at my disposal because it appears to have been replaced by "'Fat Darrell' crowned as nation's best sandwich; 'has that element of drunken ingenuity'."

I read it as "Sandwich topped with action figures..."

This did not strike me as odd. The words "sandwich" and "action figures" sort of wandered aimlessly around my brain for about an hour, until I was turning on my computer at work and they suddenly collided.

Actually, they didn't so much collide as take a good look at one another and force me to loudly blurt, "what?!"

My boss and they AEG popped their heads over the top of my cubicle to ask if I was okay. I wasn't sure what to tell them. I'm also not sure how "chicken" could have morphed into "action." Granted I wasn't wearing my glasses, but I doubt that has anything to do with it.

Incidentally, the word "sandwich" appears in every Douglas Adams novel except for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The record is 75 times in Mostly Harmless. So Long and Thanks for All the Fish is a distant second at seven occurrences.

And now... now there's a naked man in a hat on my Friends page. Oh, the humanity.
