Smells Like Bacon

My Green Mountain homeland has been getting serious play here over the past several months because of its hip, hip artistic bent. It was one thing when the groovy kids at Middlebury College continued their dominance of Muggle Quidditch - college students are supposed to be zanily creative. But even the state's malcontents are getting into the act.

Inmates working at the Vermont Correctional Industries Print Shop in St. Albans developed and printed the decals that adorn State Police vehicles, modifying the traditional logo just a tiny bit to reflect the artists' interpretation of the authorities' oeuvre. It took the state four years to figure out the merry pranksters' digital duplicity, and mere weeks for the world to have a chuckle at its expense. Two pigs' feet up from the art lovers at Gheorghe: The Blog.

Woody Jackson (Middlebury College '70) would be proud.

"Denver prosecutors say Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno has been charged with drunken driving and careless driving after getting pulled over in south Denver.

According to FOX31 in Denver, Moreno was driving a Bentley convertible with personalized license plates that read 'SAUCED.'"



It doesn't get much easier than that.

danimal, two bits of positive news on the ankle front:

1. the doc thinks it's an old injury that didn't heal exactly right and is being exacerbated by the increased mileage i'm doing right now. no threat of doing more damage, just a matter of pain management.

2. i discovered the magic of aleve on saturday and haven't felt a bit of pain since.

It's aleve now but wait till you have to graduate to the infamous aspirin/codeine over the counter pills. They are bliss.

Danimal said...

well awwright awwright.

Dave said...

Igor said...

Two beers? Pussy.

i have a guy whose office is right next to mine. whenever i send him an email he walks out of the office and pops his head in and says, "i just got your email." when he sends me an email, he walks out of his office and pops his head in and says, "i just sent you an email." it's awesome.
