First gratuitously useless post of the year

I'm too disinterested today to be my usual inscrutably wise and topical pundit self, so I'm posting a picture I found on Strangedaze, Mitchieville's strange friend, that caused me to giggle for half an hour, even when I wasn't even looking at it. Others have found my sense of humour to be inscrutable too.

While you're at it, check out this hilarious story by Emily Yoffe — Mascot for a Day (My adventure as a 10-foot-tall, inflatable George Washington). I laughed to the point of tears when reading it, which was really embarrassing at the time as I was in a room full of very serious graduate students doing important research. Consider this my public service for the year… back to regular broadcasting soon.
