Saturday was Record Store Day, and I'm good with that.  What's old is new again.  Licorice Pizza mean anything to you?  We aren't just old geeks, you know.  You are welcome youngins, for vinyl.   story

Butt dials never get old.   But never never butt dial the police, whilst preparing to commit a crime!   Or better yet do, as "a Bremerton, Washington woman did."   Gives the police a leg up.       story

The Germans are to blame for the Easter bunny.  If you are even looking for someone to blame.  "Originally an 'Easter hare,' a buck-toothed bringer of chocolate to the kids that have behaved themselves was first mentioned in German literature in 1682." (story)    All in all, any tradition that ends or begins with chocolate, I decree as a keeper.  Enjoy!  Celebrate foremost, what Easter (click here lovies) really means to humanity.
