I hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day weekend (and the week before) because now it’s time to catch up on everything you missed. Let’s all clear a half hour of our day to peruse links on another episode of In Case You Missed It.
We’re kind of married to this title now but you definitely missed a lot of this stuff and, unlike the former author, I don’t feel like being passive about letting you know it. This story about the Holocaust denier? No way you knew about it. The mayor who got killed by a donkey? I bet that one’s new.
A month ending also means it’s time for one of those fail compilations – it’s hilarious. And there’s only one piece of shark news this week. I know. I’m sorry.
STOP EVERYTHING YOU ARE DOING AND WATCH THIS VIDEO:
Alright, are we good? Hello from the middle of nowhere. It’s Monday, isn’t it? Consistently working through weekends really kills my concept of “Monday.” But to the majority of you reading this, today is the first day of a new work week. There’s a lot to- okay seriously can we talk about how cute that video was? The part when the dolphin was swimming in circles around the dog and she was just rotating in place was awesome. And when she wore the life vest? Or how about when she jumped in? Or the nap at the end? Even when the dolphins swam through the wave. Any part with the dog really. Or Dolphins. Really actually that whole video was the best part of the video.
Okay I got a little sidetracked there. Anyway, yet more things happened last week that you probably missed because you’re busy at your job daydreaming about taking your dog to swim with dolphins. But that’s why I’m here and have a whole new Plethora of Links™ that you may or may not find interesting. Of course you should find them interesting unless you’re a god damn philistine.
Yours truly was busy in the middle of nowhere last week and was going through internet withdrawl, but I still managed to find some things you probably didn’t know about.
Here’s what you missed:
Alan here. Clifford was unable to do this week’s post so I’m filling in at the helm. There’s a lot I want to cover, so in lieu of the usual couple items plus commentary I’m just going to barrage you with news and hope you take something away from one of the stories.
Let’s get started:
Welcome to Part 2 of the Kno Yo PO series – an in-depth examination into the life of the everyday PO Life editor. This week’s profile: Eddy.
1) Which Hogwarts house would you be in and why?
Eddy: Like Clifford, my initial reaction is that my ambition and absolute hatred of muggles and half-bloods would land me in Sytherin. Ultimately, however, I’d be in Gryffindor because their Quidditch team’s scouts would hear of my skill and offer me some sort of under the table scholarship. I heard they need a Blind Side Beater for the 2012-2013 season. Also, if Gryffindor gives me any shot at getting in Emma Watson’s pants, that’s where I want to be.
The PO Life:
Clifford: Eddy and I would pretty much run Hogwarts like fucking Sirius Black and James Potter. We’d absolutely tease the hell out of awkward kids, like Severus Snape, and figure out how to become Animagi by Year 5.
Eli: Hufflepuff so he can get the best access to the herbology labs.
Rudy: When are people going to learn? If you think you’re in Gryffindor, you’re not in Gryffindor. Also, if you think that saying you’re not Gryffindor material will increase your chances of getting into Gryffindor, you’re definitely in Slytherin. Eddy is the only guy I know who enjoys reading his collegiate text books for fun. Ravenclaw no doubt.
