WebLinx: Organic Food, Gizoogle, and Bad Lip Reading

Here are a few interesting, but mostly useless things I saw on the internets this week.


I try to purchase organic products whenever I can. But sometimes I wonder just how "organic" is the stuff I'm buying? For example, suspiciously gigantic perfectly formed organic bananas from Mexico always make me wonder.  The Cornucopia Institute has some very interesting and informative scorecards and reports on the truth behind companies and products labeled "organic" and some not very flattering things to say about the USDA and its relationships with agribusiness lobbyists. If you buy organic eggs or organic milk you might be interested in their Organic Egg Scorecard, or their Organic Dairy Scorecard


Gizoogle translates websites into slanguage used by Snoop Dogg. This site is not appropriate for children. And some people (like my mother, for example) may not think it is funny. For example, the Gizoogle text translator would translate what I just wrote above as:

Gizoogle translates joints tha fuck into slanguage used by Snoop Ta Tha D-O-Double-Gizzle. This joint aint appropriate fo' children. I aint talkin' bout chicken n' gravy biatch fo' realz. And some gangstas (like mah mutha, fo' example) may not be thinkin it is funny. 

You can Gizoogle anything, but wikipedia pages are particularly amusing. For example, Oldskool Possumz Book of Practical Pussies, is the Gizoogled wikipedia page for the poetry book we are reading this semester: Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot. Fo' realz, biatches.
