Forbidden Lies, and Fart Apps

Two facinating, totally unrelated things I came across today.

On Showtime, watched the documentary "Forbidden Lies." This wonderful movie explores a literary hoax, and touches on big issues of truth and deception.

Also, caught this clever bit from The Daily Show:

Thanks, Steven, I hadn't seen the joelcomm piece, and it's great.

(It's one of the subjects of the Fart Apps segment telling what it's like when The Daily Show films you for hours, to get a few minutes of footage to air. Worth a read. Link to the URL that Steven provided is here.)
