1. Today is President’s Day. I’ma buy me a mattress.
Also? If you’re really going to buy a mattress? Original Mattress Factory. Trust me.
2. So I asked Wendy Bell if she’s going to bring back Wendy Bell’s Baby Blog and her response is “I don’t know yet.” She cited reasons such as the time factor and also the privacy factor:
It’s one thing to write without anyone knowing who you are — but to be out there for all to see — it’s different.
That’s why I’m anonymous. It drives the minions nuts and it keeps the stalkers at bay.
She should just call it “Wendy Bell’s Baby Blog by Anonymous.”
3. Lukey has declared war on snow.
How awesome would it have been if Lukey had actually literally said, “I declare war on snow!”
Can I ask, there has been snow in Pittsburgh for countless winters. Has snow plowing ever been such a political hotspot before, so much that the mayor actually has to declare war on it? Geez. When I’m mayor it will be “Plow my street so I can get to the office, then PLOW ALL THE DAMN STREETS BY THE TIME I GET TO THE OFFICE OR YOU’RE FIRED.” Salt truck drivers would be whipping down the streets doing 80.
(h/t to BagItTagIt who wrote, “Obviously I know you’ll be posting this, but seriously, could there BE a better headline to make fun of?” Yes. Mayor Declares War on Weather. )
4. Scary Naked Bleeding Man is now the subject of a HILARIOUS shirt.
5. An email:

Please help us celebrate National Pigeon Day on June 13th.

National Pigeon Day sounds like a great day to kick a pigeon.
Here’s a little screencap from their right-hand news bar:
I can’t even adequately express to you what my trigger finger is doing right now. It’s like, having a seizure.
(h/t Amber, who I think may have added me to their mailing list because that is one IRONIC email I got)

haters are amusing, don’t let them get to you! If these folks actually read the animal cruelty statutes they would know most of it doesn’t even cover pigeons, except maybe the passage where one of the few restricted means of destroying pest/nuisance animals is “by means of a high altitude decompression chamber or decompression device.” Which is a shame, cuz I would bet that would totally be a hit on youtube.
It SO WOULD!
