If you want to make some paper snowflakes but, like Vince, you're just too frustrated with safety scissors, then try out Make-a-Flake. Guaranteed to waste at least 6 minutes of your life!


A jilted California man intentionally crashed his car into his ex-girlfriend's house yesterday. You know, intentional acts of "driving-car-into-house" still count as newsworthy in my book. But wait, isn't this the second time we've seen a jealous ex-lover plow a car into a building? Maybe...but it's definitely the first time the jealous ex-lover set the car on fire first.


Southern drivers plus icy roads equals much ensuing hilarity. Why, Nashville, why?

Round one of Iracane Alma Mater vs Iracane Alma Mater goes to...Iracane Alma Mater! Hahaha! See you (hopefully) in the Big East Tournament final, Michelle.

Morning quickie: it's your basic car-slips-on-black-ice-and-crashes-into-house story. Nice picture.

I am NEVER SWIMMING WITH MY MOUTH OPEN again! UGH!

Which town will play host to the first Krispy Kreme store in New Jersey? Might it be Brick? Hell...that's only a 15 minute drive from Manasquan! It's gonna be one fat summer.

Where does our fine state of New Jersey rank on a list of the average gasoline prices among the 50 states? You would be surprised. Take that, Missourah!

Since commercials before movies started creeping up in theaters several years ago, I've become more and more infuriated by them. High school teacher Miriam Fisch is even more pissed: she's filing a class-action lawsuit against Loews. The naysayer among you (cough, cough David cough) may respond with "If you don't like the commercials, then don't go to the movies!" But the crux of the lawsuit is the enormous difference between published starting times and the actual starting times. There's frequently a good ten minutes of ads and previews. Theaters should be required to publish actual starting times. Check out the plaintiffs' website.


In Albuquerque, Krispy Kreme donuts cost $84,000 per dozen. Well...they cost that much only when the credit card company's computer system malfunctions. (Link fixed. Thanks, Vince!)

Hey nerds. It turns out that you can mix oil and water. Just remove any gas that's dissolved in the water. (Yeah, I don't get it either. But this may spell remarkable new advances in salad dressing technologies. It's a NEW PARADIGM IN SALADS!)

Investment bank Thomas Weisel Partners upgraded Krispy Kreme to 'buy' from 'hold' today. Funny...I've always recommended 'buy' for Krispy Kreme doughnuts. But please...exercise caution: if you've never had an Original Glazed, make sure your first experience is with a hot and fresh doughnut. Buying twelve-hour-old doughnuts from the local Quick Chek is just not the same rapturous delight as eating one right off the conveyor belt.

It's the Blizzard of Aught-ThreeŠ or as Vince like's likes to call it "The Aught-Three President's Day StormŽ"
Total storm accumulations 20-30 inches.
Whoa!


I can't even begin to explain this wacky story. Just read it for yourself.


Best part about today's blizzard? The kids already had the day off from school. Ha-ha!

My cousin Bryant is a little bit too much of a Wake Forest fan. (and maybe a little bit too much of a Brad Daugherty fan)


A new Kids in the Hall movie is a strong possibility!


Happy birthday to my cousin Chrissie! She rocks.

Kevin Boylan and Bruce Newberg won a 7.9 million dollar arbitration decision against Krispy Kreme for being forced out of their minority ownership in several California Krispy Kreme donut shops. Hmm...
Dear Krispy Kreme,

     I promise not to sue you. I don't want your filthy lucre. All I want is a Krispy Kreme franchise on the corner of Lake Shore Drive and North Beverywck Road.

Regards, Rob

Oh, those wacky library patrons and the things they put in the book return drop boxes...like...you know...ducks. Make sure you read to the end of the article to see what wacky food item people sometimes use as bookmarks.

Wow...it's rare enough to have a car-crashing-into-house story where nobody gets hurt, but to have a plane-crashing-into-house story where no one is injured....now that's newsworthy.

Hey! Who wants to have some FUN? Now are you just saying you want to have fun or do you really wanna have FUN? Well you're shit out of luck. Check out some great time-lapse photography instead.

I fully support the ban on smoking in bars and restaurants in New Jersey...mostly because I won't have to Febreze my clothes every Saturday morning. Fie, unsavory odors!

I've been watching this flash animation for the past 75 minutes. MAKE IT STOP!!!


Is it a dream come true or just another false media promise? Whatever it is, if I ever have a flat-screen LCD television in my bathroom, I might never leave the shower.

If you're ever going to crash a car into a building and get hurt in the process, make sure the building is a hospital. No ambulance necessary! The article is accompanied by a decent photo.


This New Scientist article attempts to link the reason that humans hiccup to some distant amphibian ancestry. Silly magazine. Everyone knows that hiccups are caused by $4 pitcher of Killian's night at St. Maarten Cafe.

I'm pleased to introduce our latest team member at the site: our cousin Matt. Go easy on him, he's new.


Mwah ha ha ha...I, Matt, will be your new blogster here at iracane.com, so sit back, and feel free to add polite comments!


Happy 80th birthday to Conrad Bain! You know what this means...he's prime fodder for the next iracane.com deathpool.

Nice! Daphne, Alabama has a drive-thru Blockbuster video store. What a convenient way to return videos!

Happy 25th birthday (Monday) to Super Bowl contest winner Vince Adamson! As winner of the 2nd Annual Blah Blah Blah, he earned a nice gift pack from the Cackalacky Country Store. (bottle of sauce + tee-shirt)
