There hasn't been nearly enough fun around here lately. Our last attempt at making you smile — despite Farm Bill delays, Monsanto victories, the co-option of the EPA, and tragic transgenic pigs — caused quite a brawl in the comments section. (22 and counting!)
So, it's Friday. Start the weekend off right with this beguiling little BoingBoingTV segment about the "fast, the furious, and the well-iced" world of electric cupcake-shaped cars. If the husky '70s-style voiceover of friend o'Ethicurean Xeni Jardin, aka Lady Buttercream, chanting about "trans fats running free" doesn't make you smile, well...go eat an actual cupcake and cheer the hell up.
