1. Drink! This marks the first time I can link to a video of Lukey saying “move forward.” Awesome. (h/t M. Silenus)

2. Did you lose your dog … that died .. and you wrapped in plastic … and put in your ceiling … about a hundred years ago? It’s been found near Observatory Hill. Yay for you! (h/t Kayla)

3. Lukey is running in the Great Race. I cannot WAIT for photos of him trying to run with his hands either on his hips or in his pockets, because, come on, have you ever seen him on his feet in any other pose? Maybe they can just hand him a microphone and he can talk the whole time he’s running. (h/t Lauren)

4. “Why do we hate pigeons so much?”

“A dislike of any bird is an evolutionary survival instinct that has been passed down through our DNA. Back in cavemen times birds were bigger and posed a real danger.”

Please. In an article that contains the lines:

They are known to be susceptible to some diseases like tuberculosis

they can breed up to up to six times a year

… are you really trying to tell a chick that has been pooped on, pecked at, stared down, and dive bombed by screeching pigeons that she’s afraid of them because of the DNA passed down by her cave-dwelling ancestors?

Nice try.

5. The Burgh has been named the Most Romantic City for Baby Boomers and The Number One Cultural Destination. This explains why I always see the old people having sex in the museums. (h/t Sofa King)

    Do you think Sonni giggled just a little when she heard Luke drop his famous line knowing that she was going to have to take a drink when she got home.

    Yes, hand him a microphone and throughout the race he can exhort the other runners: “Move forward! Move forward!”

    Lukey’s chief of making stuff up has been “moved forward” out of the Mayor’s Office:
