Tonight's open thread is brought to you by fennel. Let's all thank the great bulb for hosting this semi-nightly post where off-topic conversation thrives.

After a hard day of dealing with the death of Guitar Hero and the threat of even more Call of Duty, let's all take a moment to share better, more enlightening news with the group. Like the news that I'm about to chow down on some delicious fennel! Hell yes.

Perhaps some of these non-fennel items will encourage you to talk amongst yourselves.
