Good morning, again. I’m watching people get snowed on on TV while i sit in my heated apartment. Outside it’s a toasty 40-something. That white stuff looks cold. You guys can keep it. 😉
Today’s interrogatories: What is the best comeback line you ever came up with? Was it timely or did you think of it after the fact? Do you say “all of a sudden” or “all the sudden”? Were you ever a tattletale as a kid? What’s the oddest job you ever had? What is the bigger waste of time, reports or meetings? Are you religious, or spiritual (not the same thing) or neither?

The Pope has made history choosing to resign instead of submitting to the traditional poisoning.

The last papal resignation happened in 1415. To give you an idea of how long ago that was, they hadn’t even invented gifs yet

Catholic Church seems like a great buyout target. Strong brand, underutilized real estate assets, random money-losing affiliates.

You know the Church is dead when the Pope just up and quits like he’s some two-bit Alaskan governor. #edshow
