Tauntaun Sleeping Bag might become real

Tauntaun Sleeping Bag might become real

There were plenty of good April Fool's gags this year, including CADIE and GMail Autopilot from Google, but my personal favorite was a joke product ThinkGeek was offering. The Tauntaun Sleeping Bag was merely a joke--a gag to trick customers--but after an influx of emails, the store might actually offer it.

Apparently, so many customers emailed ThinkGeek that they're seriously considering making this sleeping bag. How cool would that be? The only stipulation is that they have no idea if they'll be able to get a license from Lucasfilm. But still, it's awesome that they're going to try.

I hope if the real thing is made, it looks exactly like the mocked up photo: furry Tauntaun body outside, Tauntaun guts inside and light saber zipper. Now you can recreate the famous scene from The Empire Strikes Back without the Tauntaun carcass smell.

Real Apple fans have iPhone wedding cakes

Real Apple fans have iPhone wedding cakes

If I told you that we found this picture courtesy of Gizmodo, you'd probably look at it and call me a liar right to my face.  I'm okay with that.  What I'm not okay with, however, is this beautiful iPhone cake and its wasted potential.  Look at those apps - the thing isn't even jailbroken!  I suppose it's fitting though; a locked down phone for a newly-locked-down man.

The cake took 18 hours to make and was a gift to Bobby Casey from his new bride.  Sure, it says Cingular on it, but that doesn't take away from its awesomeness one bit.  It's almost too beautiful to eat, but unfortunately, the cake was eaten.  At least they took pictures.

Bottom line: whoever made this thing has serious talent.  In fact, I wonder if she'd make us a Palm Pre cake for launch...  If you're out there, get in touch!...
