Basketballmer, Birthday Books, Bakersfield, And Boobs, All In Your Afternoon Happy Links!
Man, Snipy and Rebecca take ONE afternoon off from writing the link post, and out come the Ponies. So sue us. Here are your Happy Nice Time links, People:
The upcoming Season 2 of HBO's True Detective will be set in California, but not in Los Angeles, which has Been Done.
The jerkwads at the MPAA don't want people drooling over posters of Eva Green's boobs. That seems seriously stupid -- in other words, standard operating procedure for the MPAA.

What do you give an excessively literate kid for his 17th birthday? You could always ask! Now, if we can just convince him to start writing for Wonket again...
What do you give an excessively racist sportsball team owner for his franchise? If you're Steve Ballmer, about $2.5 billion. Naw, that has to be a typo. Does it include any good books at least? Like a Guttenberg bible or two?

Also, too, we have Sideboob.
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
