1. Delightfully Anachronistic Package De– Wait, No, Nevermind!

    As you know, when I happen across a product with delightfully anachronistic package design, why, I just feel as though I’m going to bust, I get so excited, and–

    You know, if I’m ever going to win the respect of the rest of the internet, I’d better play by the rules, and in this case that means joining hands in solidarity with my online peers, my sister sites, you might call them – Wikipedia, and Reddit, and all the rest, sure – and louvering the site today.  I was going to say “shuttering” but I know you hate that term as much as I do.

    …And yet, I have to ask: Doesn’t it seem odd that on Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard Day, we celebrated Betty White, and now today, we’re going black?  

    Will we ever go back?  They say you don’t.

    But I think we will.

    You’re probably wondering what all of this is about.  It’s about SOPA.  Which, if I remember my decades-old  junior high Spanish, as well as my right-now living-in-Southern-California Spanish, means “soup.”

    I think that about says it all.

    So I hope that all five or six of you that may visit the site today understand that this is bigger than just some delightfully anachronistic package design (every example of which I find makes me more giddy than you can possibly  imagine).

    This is about Spanish – or quite possibly Mexican – soup.
