Today we learned about Meghan McCain's hatred of going to work when she's been dumped and love of landing airplanes on the Las Vegas Strip. She said: "The American dream of rags to riches feels attainable the minute your airplane lands on the Strip." Uh, airplanes don't land on the Strip! So we said that we could have titled the post: "Meghan McCain Lands Airplane on Vegas Street, Miraculously Avoids Killing Anyone." But a commenter had a better suggestion.
Today we all watched a video for a teen song called "My Jeans." It's all about a beloved, fabulous (but not Zack fabulous, just regular fabulous) pair of dungarees. It was great! But it's sooo this morning. We need something hip and now. Luckily one commenter has their finger on the pulse of the industry and could tell us what's next.
Today we looked at the raging debate over New York's bike lanes, with strong voices on both sides speaking their piece. Bicyclists are annoying menaces that don't follow traffic laws! Motorists are careless and don't care about helpless bikers! Etc. In truth, bicycle people can sometimes come off a bit more on the self-righteous side than the non-bicyclists, but not this person, thankfully.
We've been talking a lot about fucksaws recently! Sometimes directly, sometimes indirectly. Like when Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is referred to as "a human fucksaw." This prompted a commenter to wonder if we maybe had stock in the fucksaw and stood to gain from its mention. (We don't, sadly.) This question opened the door for some charming legalese/business-type speculation.
