Internet round-up for the week of October 10, 2022
Good morning, and happy Friday! It’s gray and overcast out here in the Bay Area — it seems to be cloudy every morning now and then sometimes clears off in the afternoon. Is this California fall? Can’t say I love it. It’s hard to get out of bed! And also, it’s chilly enough for a sweater, but only if you’re in the shade? I don’t understand.
I’m feeling a bit down this morning because a) see above and b) [somber moment alert!] I found out yesterday that an old friend of mine from the Chicago comedy scene passed away this week from a heart attack and stroke at only 38. Just a real bummer.
It always sucks when someone dies, but especially when that someone is very funny and nice and talented, and also really close to your age. Which is…objectively young. Ugh. I shouldn’t have to think about my mortality on a Friday. No one should.
Glancing back over all the fun stuff from this week has been a bit of a pick-me-up, so hopefully, it’ll do the same for you.
I’m Being Personally Attacked
I should not have to be reminded of the Presidential Fitness Test. This is unfair. The Presidential Fitness Test is the reason why I wasn’t a straight A student in elementary school — yes, that’s right, tiny little me got a “B” in PE. PE should be pass/fail!! My one small victory was that one year I managed to sneakily use my foot to prop myself up during the arm hang and score high enough for an “A”. Does this still exist? I hope not.
It’s called RECYCLING.
Vintage Meme Making The Rounds
I will never not laugh at none pizza with left beef.
Also, I don’t know how or why this appeared in my feed, but I can’t stop laughing about these California vanity plate requests and the DMV’s responses. Here are a couple:
Randomly Selected Animal Cuties
Today’s cuties are heavily skewed toward animals eating things.
That’s it from me for this week! Stay safe out there.
