And here I was thinking that this thread would be about Tina Fey.

Kari Byron vs Tina Fey

. . . Kari Byron by KO in the first round.

Ya' gotta' give the Mythbuster's credit though. As hot as Kari is, they don't play it up on the show. Class act.

A lot more people would watch if they focussed more on Kari and had her (as Nicholas Johnson puts it) 'use the hotness' more. Hence my point, "Ya' gotta' give the Mythbuster's credit though. As hot as Kari is, they don't play it up on the show. Class act."

Destiny, I'm pretty sure I've seen you do it here at the Café.

Certainly not - Lions can differentiate between meat and tofu. Smile

Hm. Might wanna run along to the "Table Hoppers And Party Strollers" thread for more on the lions' feeding habits.

That's a great story Leland - everyone should read it - few jokes are as funny as what life itself can throw at us.

She's even an art geek. Her work tends towards the bizarre, as in 'dark and bizarre' just like bizarre magick.

She's displayed her sculpting skills on the show a few times. They built a replica "Ark of the Covenant" and she fashioned the angels for the top. One was Adam and the other Jamie.

So Kari Byron isn't just another pretty face after all!

As for the polyhedra gaming die, it only goes to show that what was once old is new again! I liked the "An artifact from when they really HAD dungeons and dragons for playing the game!!!" statement! So true, so true!

This die does raise an interesting question, however. What game was it used to play?

Just so everyone knows, the link to Christies no longer works, at least for me.
Magic! The quicker picker-upper!

No, she's got great legs to (Bada-Bing).
I'm sorry but I just couldn't resist that set-up.
