Pucker up
This one is listed under the Nuclear Blast section. It's supposed to indicate that you should have an evacuation plan. But those white lines look like streets. So this image seems to suggest that you should have a plan to escape a nuclear blast that happens about half a block away. A nuclear blast. Half a block away. Nuclear. Blast. Block.

This graphic is salvagable with just a little careful editing.
"LOCATION OF BLAST" should be changed to "LOCATION OF BLAST"
"You are here" should be changed to "You are here"
"POSSIBLE ESCAPE ROUTE" should be changed to "KISS YOUR ASS GOODBYE"

If you are Vin Diesel, yell really loud
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has published a web site full of instructions for how to Be Ready for any manner of terrorist attacks. The instructions are illustrated with the same sort of images you might see in a plane emergency card... take for example this icon used in the First Aid Kit section:


The first aid kit example is pretty clear. Others are less so. In response, one thoughtful individual has taken it upon himself to attach some appropriate captions to some of the more ambiguous images found on the site. As a sort of public service. In the interest of education. Really.

(Thanks to Susan for sending this my way.)

From Ruben to Clay? From Clay to Ruben?
I have to agree with the old ball and chain about Ruben and Clay being the obvious choices to win American Idol. I'm having a little trouble, though, picturing them doing the tender love song in the obligatory American Idol movie.

Granted, I thought Kelly and Justin wouldn't make a believable couple, either...
