PopWatch: We're not safe for work

I know I come off like a benevolent blogger, but actually, my goal is to get all of you fired from your jobs. Then I can get rich opening a national chain of Internet-coffeehouses called The Watercooler where smart, funny, unemployed folks can work on their résumés, surf the net, consume overpriced Cheetos and Diet Cokes, and passionately debate their pop-culture obsessions. The latest step in my evil master plan: To get you busted by your boss checking out one of these clearly not-work-related links:

-10 Things I Hate About Commandments: There’s no arguing that this trailer for Charlton Heston’s classic — recut to the music of Beyoncé, Usher, and the Romantics — is a hoot, but the shout-outs to Sinéad O’Connor and Samuel L. Jackson raise it to must-see status.

-I’ll say nothing about TVGasm’s mashup of American Idol and The O.C., other than that it’s definitely worth a few precious minutes of your afternoon. (Poor Marissa!)

-Metafilter pointed me to a link of Luke Chueh’s artwork, and now I can’t stop looking. Too bad "I Asked for Scrambled" and "Ham" are sold out; otherwise these vaguely cannibalistic pieces would be hanging in my apartment.

-And finally, in honor of Joan Collins’ 73rd birthday, a tribute to her famous Alexis-Krystle catfights. Rated G, for genius!

    I read when my kids are at recess – respond when they are at lunch!
    I’m tenured so no getting fired here : )

    Luke Chueh’s originals might be sold out, but check out Gallery 1988 (gallery1988.com) for Luke Chueh prints and others. Also check out the still-available originals and the prints from their annual art show inspired by videogames of the 1980’s, “I am 8-bit.”

    Y’all have probably gotten me targeted. Your website is now blocked at work (I’m typing this from home). So I keep waiting for The Powers That Be to call saying, “We know about your PopWatch addiction; pack your crap and leave.” I just can’t help it. Little jewels like “10 Things I Hate About Commandments” (which had me laughing so hard I cried, by the way) just keep calling me.
    The Watercooler will have a support group, won’t it?
