Whittle It a Little, It’ll Fit

Odds and sods I look at regularly, just because they amuse me. I hope they do the same for you.

Back in 2002, computer game maker Acclaim Entertainment announced that it planned to advertise its newest game, ShadowMan2, by paying families for the right to place small billboards on gravestones.
