Something We Normally Don't Watch

SNL's TV Funhouse Spoof

First off, I'm not a big Saturday Night Live fan. It used to be good, at least, what I remember of it. But the jokes and skits have really taken a turn that does not please me. I don't like Dora the Explorer, either (her "brother's" "show" isn't all that enjoyable, either). All the screaming and disjointed questions are rather annoying; not to mention the incessant switching from English to Spanish.

So, come Saturday night, I was flipping through the channels and caught this "skit" on Saturday Night Live. Every once in a while they do something called TV Funhouse, which is supposed to be an animated spoof of something else on TV (usually, from what I understand). This night, they spoofed Dora; this has to be the funniest thing I have seen in a long time.

A word of warning, some of the humor may be of an adult nature. It's not that it's all vulgar (there are a couple of spots that may be, one that is for sure), but that the humor is on an adult level, perhaps over the head of most children. This, despite being animated, and a spoof of a children's program.

Another Anti-Spam Measure

adding another layer of precaution

The comment spam in recent weeks has been on the increase. Apparently, they're finding away around the anit-spam measures already in place—although, according to the logs, more is being prevented than is getting through. The funny thing is they seem to be targeting just a couple of entries; most of them are going after "Another Neat Trick or Hack" (an entry about a "hack" I created for Pivot).

So, I've enabled another feature of the Pivot Blacklist: the Spam Quiz. This is a simple question with an answer not readily available to spambots. So, when you want to leave a comment here, you'll simply have to answer another question. No big deal, right?
