things I see and must speak on, son!
It’s not enough to drink beer – you have to make a game of it. It’s required, apparently. I’ve seen people play beer pong and quarters, but there’s another level to this drinking games phenomenon. Read the rest of this entry
I just don’t get why we have so many socks without a mate. There must be 50 left after The Great Sunday Sock Pairing of 2014, which is crazy.

New York Times puts 'extreme' in quotes in reference to Buffalo snowfall, Mountain Dew enthusiasts cry foul
In the last twenty years or so, the word ‘extreme’ has been bandied about with reckless abandon. Its overuse is well chronicled in silly product commercials, the X Games and so on.

Calling your beer “Double Pumpkin” implies to me that this will taste even more like pumpkin than most pumpkin beers. Yet, I can detect no pumpkin taste at all!

The Wall Street Journal is for everyone! (And by ‘everyone,’ we mean rich people and Jim & Pam from The Office)
You can’t slip this sort of thing past Dr. Girlfriend! She can spot an income inequality piece with the best of them. I guess The Wall Street Journal isn’t necessarily trying to market themselves to the widest audiences, but this is a bit much even for them.
