This past weekend, thousands of folk fanatics crowded the confines of Fort Adams State Park for the 55th incarnation of the Newport Folk Festival. The sellout crowd included many families, and more specifically, dads.
Droves and droves of straw-fedora-wearing, banjo-pickin' dads.
Someone in my office is masturbating at work. How do I know? Because I have found jizz on the toilet seat TWICE in the last two weeks. We have a few single-stall, shared bathrooms, and we're a fairly small office. I have a few suspicions of who it could be, but no real evidence. If it were someone leaving rotten food in the fridge I'd just send a company-wide email, but that doesn't seem like it will work for this. Our company is smallish--maybe 30-35 employees--and we don't really have HR. Help?More
I've been dating this guy for about 6 months, and last week, for the first time, he asked the waitress to split our check. I was shocked--so far he's always been a gentleman and picked up the bill when we go out. I'm totally turned off by it, but he seems like a great guy in other ways. Should I tell him how much this upset me, or just dump him? Cheapness is a total deal-breaker for me. More
Everybody knows that, if you eat something, you attain it's power.
That's why that dude from "Red Dragon" tried to eat that William Blake painting and why Chinese men have been scarfing tiger dicks as a cure for impotence for thousands of years. It's science, okay?
One of my coworkers doesn't get kitchen etiquette. She always brings in foods that smell: fish (that she warms up--eww), broccoli that she'll steam in the microwave, cheeses that make the whole fridge smell like feet. Once she left refried beans from takeout mexican in the fridge so long we thought a small animal had died. She's also careless--besides leaving food around, she never really cleans up after herself. She'll wash the pan she used, but when you go to use it, you realize there's still food stuck in the corners, or she'll spill something sticky over the counter and just...leave it there. More
It has been another crazy week in pop culture, so we're perfectly happy selling our souls via Kickstarter and pawning off some saucy celebrity dirt for the right price. The Pop Culture Kickstarter is a regular round-up of all of the wild stuff you've missed on the Internet in the past week if you don't spend as much time on Facebook as we shamefully do. If you haven't heard which celebrity hunk is off the market or which actual Kickstarter campaign is making millions in the name of food, read on and get your pennies ready.
Local SEIU District 615, the union that represents contracted cleaners on the MBTA, has been fighting recent staffing cuts that will reduce the number of MBTA janitors by 29%. The union has been protesting publicly since June, but their most visible demonstration came in the form of a flash mob in Government Center where various protestors gave a spirited (though disjointed) rendition of the Village Peoples' "YMCA."More
