I like James the Circus Zebra. Help James jump on trampolines and swing on trapezes until he reaches his destination -- a canon that shoots James through a ring of fire! Ooooh! Ahhhhh!
If you want to cut to the chase and just shoot James through the ring of fire, click on "Ring of Fire" when you open the game.
Or click on "Ball of Doom" and see how many seconds you can keep James balanced on top of a circus ball. This game has the advantage that it rarely takes more than 40 seconds to play. In fact, the first time you try it you'll be lucky if you last 5 or 10 seconds. This game definitely won't waste half an hour of your time.
And while we're going for mindless entertainment, don't forget to read The Onion.
Oh, look, a bunch of ads. Right in the middle of my --
I see that Macy's is having a Columbus Day Mattress Sale.
It never occurred to me until just now that I need a Columbus Day Mattress!
Because nothing says "Columbus Day" like box springs.
It makes me wonder: What else am I missing?
Seasons change, summer turns to fall, the holidays begin to creep up on you, and -- bam! -- it's October 31st and your kids have nothing to wear for Halloween and you didn't even get a mattress for Columbus Day.
That's the kind of thing that can haunt a kid for life.
