I have never wanted a tattoo, but the Kitchenaid Mixer might just the one...

I always thought the similarities between Dune and the Wheel of Time where particularly striking. All female "witches" with one male who can do the same stuff, who has been in prophecies and will change everything. Desert Warriors made more fearsome than anyone else by their harsh environment, inextricably tied to the prophecy hero. Lots of feuding houses. Of course WoT takes these similar setups and then goes lots of different directions with them than Dune, rather than maintaining a similar plot all the way through, but then, so does Star Wars...

That Moon Landing one is hilarious.

And "I Didn't Want To Go On Your Stupid Quest Anyway" is freaking GENIUS. I laughed on an average of every three paragraphs. I want to cut off Sän's head and take his powers.
