Friday afternoon. Partly cloudy and temperate, 62 degrees.
My computer is dying and that is the least of my woes . . .
Having a really bad November 7. No words . . .
This week’s best news exchange:
Jon Stewart: But first, team coverage at various campaign headquarters.
Jason Jones: Incredible night for Money in politics . . . all $6.5 billion that participated in this year’s election are here tonight . . .
Jon Stewart: Sam Bee is at money’s opponent in this year’s election: Ideas.
Sam Bee: As you can imagine, it’s been a tough night for Ideas. Just minutes ago, Ideas conceded to Money. Obviously, it was a collect call. Ideas is in rough shape.
Jon Stewart: I think a lot of people didn’t even realize Ideas were on the ballot this year
Sam Bee: Ideas didn’t put up much of a fight, appeared in very few ads, certainly didn’t show up for any debates

Baffled and completely caught off guard I slowly peel the aluminum foil off the pan to behold a plethora of sugar cookie and frosting vaginas. Not just any old vagina, but ALL KINDS OF VAGINAS… I give the parent the most professional look I can muster and quietly reply “I’m sorry Autumn, but I can’t give these to my students. This just isn’t appropriate.”
I don’t have an image for these educational cupcakes, but if you want to see the rest of the story, including the mother’s rant, click here.
I mean really, second graders? I. Just. Can’t. Even.
In our continuing coverage of social media fails:
Jumping on the Ebola bandwagon:
Really? You had to add that disclaimer? Sheesh.
This is too cool not to post: Wes Anderson Centered
Just two of many reasons to go to Norway:
