-------------------------------------------------

  We are utterly stupid - and often mishear song
  lyrics as something entirely different.

  "Like a Bat Out of Hell" = "Like a Battery
  Chicken" - you know the type of thing.

  B3ta member Joel Veitch - creator of The
  Frightened Boy - has recently been exploring
  this area to great effect with his "Simply
  Red having Sex with a Rabbit" series of
  animations.

  So we joined up with him to make some more...

-------------------------------------------------

  Joel & B3ta have been swearing at the
  computer all day to get this stuff to

  fun.

: B3TA CHALLENGE - WINNER
  .. Photoshop this penguin ..

  We have been having a lot of fun on the B3ta
  message board this week. We challenged our
  friends to take a picture of a baby penguin
  and mess it up in Photoshop.

  See the results:

  "disturbing search requests" web site.)

: B3TA CHALLENGE - NEW ONE
  .. Photoshop this Echidna ..

  This week we have a new challenge, 
  Photoshop this Echidna.

  (BTW: an Echidna is small australian mammal
  related to the Platypus.)

  Remember - this isn't about artistic
  excellence - but about making a little
  gag.


-------------------------------------------------
: PYGMY SHREW NEWS
  .. Sting the little bastard - until he dies.

  Pox - the guys behind the heavily forwarded
  Pygmy Shrew animation - have put up a fun
  new "activity."

  It's a cute little animation where you can
  click on the shrew and sting him with a bee.

  Go on - kill him:

: LINK OF THE WEEK
  .. World Trade Center Game

  There have been a lot of games created 
  about the WTC Disaster, and almost
  all have them have been unplayable and
  in poor taste.

  This game breaks the mold - it's actually
  good - a variation on the classic arcade
  game Missile Command.  

  (But it's still in poor taste...)
 
  Play it:
