1. Yesterday I saw this car in the lot my husband parks in near Market Square:
That one in the lower corner says, “Will work for Bryan Adams tickets.”
And you guys thought I was the biggest Bryan Adams fan in the city.
Dying to know whose car this is.
Also, who knew there were that many styles of Bryan Adams bumper stickers?!
2. Dear local fire departments, I am looking at you, using two fingers to point at my eyeballs and then I’m whipping that around to point at your eyeballs.
3. Fayette County … REPRESENT.
Also, why do some men do this? Do they think they’re going to whip it out and women will just not be able to control themselves?
Gold star to the commenter who said, “He was just trying to give them some special sauce.”
Update: NEW representation from Fayette County! ICE CREAM TRUCK WARS.
4. Lots of WTAE links in this Random n’at. This is the saddest, most ironic headline I’ve read in a while.
5. Someone is stealing Lukey’s $1,000 Taking Care of Bizznass trash cans.
40 of them have been stolen. That’s $40,000. I just did math.
City Public Works Director Rob Kaczorowski said the steel cans are missing from all over the city, many from bus shelters no longer in use. A worker discovered a can was missing in March. An inventory determined 39 were gone, Kaczorowski said.
“Most were in isolated locations … where there’s not a lot of pedestrian traffic,” Kaczorowski said.
First, this is why you don’t spend 1,000 freaking dollars on trash cans.
Second, Lukey, why are you putting $1,000 trash cans in isolated places like bus shelters that are no longer in use? Places that barely see any pedestrian traffic adorned with $1,000 trashcans?!
Throw a $100 trash can there for the love of responsible spending.
It’s funny, ’cause it’s true.
7. The post below this one is a ticket giveaway for the Pittsburgh Magazine Best Restaurants party. WOO!
8. City Council has added to the 311 line, this time creating a line just for residents to report annoying noises.
A Pittsburgh City Council task force today announced the creation of a “noise line” to gather public input about aggravating sounds across the city.
Residents may phone or text noise pollution concerns to (412) 223-7620.
There is so much hilarious potential for abuse of this phone number I can’t even stand it.
“Hello? Yeah, the Mayor is on my radio.”
“There’s a toothless yinzer being interviewed on the five o’clock news.”
“I’m calling to report that these trash cans make a HELL OF A SOUND when I roll them away.”
