Enjoy the unique comedy stylings of Leonard Cohen! He's quite funny although I keep waiting for him to break into song or, at the very least, do an impression of Dustin Hoffman. The clip is included in the 1965 documentary Ladies and Gentlemen... Mr. Leonard Cohen, which also included his reading of "The only tourist in Havana turns his thoughts homeward" that I posted about previously. You can watch the full documentary here:
From Boing Boing pal Dave Eggers' pitch perfect opinion piece in the New York Times:
Q: I think I have it.
A: Have what?
Q: It. I’ve got extreme fatigue, migraines, chills, aches, nausea and a fever of 102.
A: Are we talking about coronavirus?
Q: We are. I’m worried. I’m 50. People my age are dying.
A: That does sound concerning. Let’s get you tested.
Q: OK, I’m ready.
A: You mean now?
Q: Of course.
A: Oh, you can’t do one now.
Q: Why not?
A: How’s late next week look for you?
Q: Late next week? I’m sick today.
A: We have three appointments in mid July. Wait. Those were just taken. How’s your end-of-month?
Q: We’re four months into the pandemic. It still takes that long to get a test?
A: It depends. Looks like Tulsa has a drive-through thingie tomorrow. Are you anywhere near Tulsa, Okla.?
A: Keystone, S.D.?
A: Well, then it could take longer. Where are you?
Q: San Francisco.
A: Oh, then it’ll be a lot longer. Let me make sure … Let’s see … Typing in ‘San Francisco’ … Is that two S’s or two C’s? No, I got it. Whoa, looks like a lot of people want tests where you are.
Q: And you don’t have enough?
A: Oh, we have plenty of tests. We just don’t have appointments. You need an appointment to get a test, and the appointments — these we don’t have.

Yesterday, five large department stores in the towns of Lindsay and Whitby, Ontario, Canada had to temporarily stop ringing up customers because every item scanned at the register showed up as Mr. Potato Head.
"A point of sale downloading error caused item names to appear incorrectly," said Cathy Kurzbock, manager of external communications for department store chain Canadian Tire. "It has since been corrected and the stores are operating normally."
Apparently, they don't suspect this was a prank but, well, I wouldn't be so sure.

Search Google for many more memetastic upside down Stormtrooper helmet gags. (And yes, I realize that the cap of the helmet is still right-side up.) These happy Stormtroopers would make great bad guys in the "Star Wars But With Tiny Lightsabers" feature film.
