Good morning, ding-dongs! Has anybody else been watching the basketball? The actual most ridiculous thing happened last night. Like, I’m completely unaffected by it, had no stake, but here I am in the morning completely incredulous that it happened. This isn’t even a setup for a bad joke about something like my alma mater winning/losing a game — just that a tiny honors university that’s an extension of a state university system did something that was supposed to be impossible, and with players who all looked like they just started to shave.
Oh, and Trivago was finally, mercifully really eliminated from the WACK audition. I think. Is she back yet?
I’ll of course be all over the ongoing drama as the auditions, the Tournament and the Corenament move on today, and it’s St. Patrick’s Day, upon which the not-Irish masses all use that one Scots-Irish great grandparent to present highly racialized caricatures, most notably drinking themselves blind. It’s a mess! This is why, as sensible people, you should play the Fun, do the dang Corenament, and focus on all of the good things that are presented to you below.
What’s This about Drinking Yourself Blind?
