Friday LinkFrogging – 6/11/10

Oh what a week its been boys and girls.

Lots of good (albeit largely late) content on the mighty GG this week.

That leads us into our favorite weekly (and always timely) feature…LinkFrogging.

Yes, we’re back once again with a load of links to mystify your friends and neighbors with this weekend.

And, of course, no list of links would be complete without a slice of cheesecake.

This week proved to be a dilemma for yours truly.  With a pair of remakes opening in theaters this weekend, The Karate Kid and The A-Team, I was torn between a pair of contenders. 

First, there’s Jessica Biel who stars in The A-Team as army officer charged with bringing in the gang that can’t shoot straight. 

Then there was Elisabeth Shue, the love interest in the original Karate Kid movie.  She taught a whole generation a different application of “wax on, wax off.”

What’s a GonzoGeek to do?

I’ll tell you.

For the first time ever, you, dear reader, get two different slices of cake.

You can thank me later.

On with the links.
