Groovy, baby

When I see things like this story, which Karin and Kevin have both flagged, I just can't help myself.

At around 5 a.m. Monday, authorities say two people in a dark SUV broke in to Austin Powder, a business that sells explosives to construction companies for blasting purposes.

Is it just me, or is anyone else unable to read the name of that business without thinking "International Man of Mystery"? Yeah, baby, yeah!

I am SO ashamed to admit this, but no, I cannot. Shaggalicious, baby.

Well, not any more I can't.

I actually thought the business was REALLY named after the Austin Powers before I read your entire entry, kind of like when "Bollywood Video" opened up across from my local "Hollywood Video."
