A Utah coffee-shop made a funny t-shirt that showed coffee being funnelled into the trumpet of the Angel Moroni (a sigil that tops Mormon temples -- the Church enjoins caffeine hot drinks). The LDS Church threatened to sue for trademark infringement, so they got an even better design:

It shows a giant hand from the sky pouring the java - which the LDS Church urges its members to abstain from drinking - into a disembodied trumpet.

The caption: "The Lord giveth, and a church taketh away."

Store owners Ed Beazer and Van Lidell insist it's just harmless repartee, albeit a tad one-sided.

Trailer for The Birds: 1963. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock starring Rod Taylor, Jessica Tandy, Suzanne Pleshette and Tippi Hedren. wealthy San Francisco playgirl pursues a potential boyfriend to a small Northern California town which slowly takes a turn when birds of all kinds suddenly begin to attack people. The final screenplay (from a Daphne Du Maurier story) was written by Evan Hunter, best known to detective story fans under his pen name "Ed McBain". Tippi Hedren's daughter is Melanie Griffith.

Celine Dion sings with Video Graphic of Elvis during American Idols 'Idol Gives Back'. The technology is great... but I am not a big (or even a little) fan of Celine. link via don't call me veronica
