Weekend Open Thread: Friday Fun Links and VerSpanken!

-Here, Todd McFarlane, is an example of The Walking Dead as block figures that more people wanted.

-Facebook takes steps to ensure stupid people know The Onion is satire, ignoring the obscure sites that actually fool people.

-NECA secretly made a Toys R Us Exclusive Mego-style Jason Voorhees in Nintendo colors.

-An American soldier and an Islamic Jihadist briefly Twitter-bond over Robin Williams. Meanwhile, an American right-wing site insists the late comedian used demonic possession powers.

-Rob Liefeld has his own iOS app. Now, if I could just remember which of my 35 pouches I left my phone in…

-Simon Cowell is making a Betty Boop movie, because we can’t have nice things.

-An essential fast food flowchart.

-When you think Jules Verne, you naturally think Dwayne Johnson.

-Man tours around on a home-built velociraptor tricycle to protest kids being taught creationism.

As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.) Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A.
