Sackboy is Judge Dredd (link roundup)

Teaser poster featuring Little Big Planet's Sackboy as Judge Dredd.

And a few more links:

1. Oprah to give Jenny McCarthy, who advocates not giving kids vaccines, her own show. I can't find it at the moment, but someone once put together a list of all of the stupidity Oprah had supported. It was an impressive list. And speaking of Oprah, how does this paragraph end up in an AP article about the colossal screw up that is the KFC free chicken giveaway?

Known for generosity, Winfrey has doled out impressive giveaways for her studio audiences, from books to cars, and her comments or support have caused distinct spikes in the popularity of everything from consumer goods to political candidates. She also has hosted a televised philanthropy competition, "Oprah's Big Give," where contestants help people in need.
Uh, yeah, she was promoting KFC out of generosity.

2. Terrific opening sentence to a blog post: "Still embedded somewhere in the shores of California, buried by more than a century of sand, are lost hydroelectric machines."

3. The Top 8 ‘Oh Shit!’ Moments from Mixed Martial Arts.

4. Cute drawing of Spider-Man and Venom.
