Well, when you're run by Koreans ...
Be honest, boss, did your heart skip a few beats when you saw that that was Vanya's post and all of his open tabs were visible?
Especially the one about cleavage.

Is 'buger' pronounced like 'booger'?

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

The latest series of H&R Block commercials is yet another example of some marketing hack appropriating a song snippet (from "For the Love of Money" by the O'Jays) and hoping the yahoos won't notice they're using it to connote the exact opposite of what the original song meant.

As a former seasonal H&R Block employee, I say this with only the greatest affection: jerks.
Poo-tee-weet? So it goes.

So, lately I've been seeing this bumper/window sticker: HE>i. Why they think Helium is greater than the square root of minus one I have no idea.

Ha! Good one. Those in red states would have a different interpretation of the sticker. The design in on t-shirts as well.

Good question. It appears to be one. There is a revival of old-fashioned barber shops in this area, although this one appears to have been around for many years.

At my next J! audition when they ask how I'm going to spend the money, I now have the best answer: "Visit all seven ancient wonders of the world"

You plan on winning enough to buy a time machine? When you're done, can I borrow it? I'll have it back by yesterday.
