IT'S HARD TO THINK

It IS hard to think of one... unless you're willing to use your brain for 10 seconds: Lucy, Fonzie, Chaplin, Skywalker, Ferris, Gilligan, all of the Bradys and for pete's sake Sulu!

A SNACK IN THE DARK

Tired of dingoes eating your baby? Now your baby can eat a Dingo!

WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY

The other day, my window disappeared. At least that's what it looked like. Got to my car — no window.

Turns out, the window regulator broke, and the glass vanished into the door. Without a working motor, the window wouldn't go back up. The price to fix it? $350-500.

Unless you do it yourself.

First I took the door panel off. (And left it in my kitchen because that's kinda funny.)


Then I removed the plastic weather seal and disconnected the wires.

Here's the shiny new regulator. I could've bought it online, but I spent a little more to get it from  Engler Bros Auto Parts in Santa Monica. The reason? If we all keep buying everything from Amazon, there won't be small businesses in a few years.

Repair time: about 2 hours. Total cost: under $100.

FORTUNE

I got nothin'.

WHAT THE BLANK?

Whenever I get one of these in the mail, I think — "This seems very passive-aggressive."

WELL, THAT CHAPS MY HIDE

Not one, not two, but THREE giant tags sewn into the waistband of the Gap's tagless boxer briefs.
