Friday Links!

Leading off this week, and it's wonderfully funny: NBA Free Agency Recap: Otto.

I couldn't possibly have said it any better: NBC paid $7.75bn for its Olympic rights ... and we got televisual vomit

From Wally, and I still remember the magnificent mess that was Mad Magazine: The Don Martin Dictionary: A collection of sound effects from his Mad Magazine pages. Next, the reincarnation of Harpo Marx: Cat Existential Crisis.

From Brian Brown, and it's a terrific read: The ballad of the Chowchilla bus kidnapping

C. Lee, and stellar as always. First, and this is fascinating, it's The Marriage Pact. This is awful in every way: As China Rolled Out Its COVID-19 Shots, Victims of Earlier Vaccine Scandals Vanished. This is brilliant: Wild Parrots in Australia Are Teaching Each Other How to Break Into Trash Bins. This is concerning: Over half the deer tested in Michigan have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2. Death of a legend: Ron Popeil, Inventor and Ubiquitous Infomercial Pitchman, Dies at 86. I can't quite get behind this concept: You Don’t Need to Pay $12 for Mac and Cheese Ice Cream. Make It Yourself Instead. Oh, and I botched this link last week: The Soviet spy steam railway that's still running
