…Cream cheese penguins look delicious?

Cream Cheese Penguins

If you’re planning on BBQing this weekend, then grab some olives, a bit of cream cheese and a carrot and make yourself a cream cheese penguin army!

They’re easy to make (though time consuming) and the end result is a can’t resist treat that will delight young and old alike.

…Yesterday was April Fools’ Day?

“You know the rules, and so do I…”

Yesterday was April Fools’ Day, but I feel like it should have just been called Official Rick Roll Day, since so many sites (DYH included) used it as an excuse for a little meme misdirection. (YouTube Rick Rolling anyone and everyone that clicked on a featured video link was a classic!)

However, not all sites went for the easy/obvious gag, and some managed to pull some pretty funny stunts. Below are some of my favorites:

…Twhirl might be the best Twitter client?

Twhirl

Twhirl is an Adobe Air based Twitter client that runs on both Windows and Macs, and features the following:

  • Connects to multiple Twitter accounts
  • Notifications on new tweets
  • Shorten long URLs (using snurl or is.gd)
  • Cross-post updates to Pownce and Jaiku
  • Post images to TwitPic
  • Search tweets (using TweetScan or terraminds)
  • Timeline filtering
  • Localized to English, German, Italian and Spanish
  • Color schemes
  • Automatically check for new versions

While I’m currently a fan of Twitterrific, I’ve started to use Twhirl on the Windows based work computer, and definitely like the feature set. It’s easy to use, unobtrusive, and gives you plenty of customization. Plus, Adobe is pushing hard to get developers to work with Air, so there’s a lot of support there for future developments as well.

Maybe it’s time to give Twhirl a whirl.

…It’s TGI Friday: Drag Soccer?

Drag Soccer

Drag Soccer is a tactical game of soccer where you control when players run, pass, and shoot.

It’s addictive in its simplicity, and the AI means you don’t have to worry about the other players while you give one directions, making it easy to learn as well as fun.

Drag on.
