Breakfast of Champions: 2/20

If you don't read Swedish, I'll inform you that this Flash tool is an ad for a telecom company. If we had telecoms in the U.S. that developed interactive basset hound-beatbox games, it'd be a lot easier to swallow giving them immunity from lawsuits, I'll tell you that.
