Pixnit, obviously, but anyone know who does the bad apples? Photo by sushiesque.
Friday = Weekend section day! Come, let’s see see how they stack up this week. Ready?
Casually slipping “says David Bowie in an e-mail” into a story = 3 points,
via The Globe. (“Said David Bowie during our weekly sushi date” would’ve taken the cake.)
Combining self-deprecation, restaurant-deprecation, and a joke in one sentence: “If you’re the kind of diner with a bad short-term memory, you’ll… wait, what was I saying?” = 2 points, via Globe Sauce.
Employing the words “shook his jowls violently” in a lede = 2 points, via NYT Theater section.
Using an almost painfully meh review to characterize a decidedly meh sounding concert, via NYT Music.
Pitting Oscar Wilde against the surgeon general, comparing cigarettes to nipples, and mourning the loss of a best bet pick-up line = 2 points, via WPost Weekend. Bonus: WPost Weekend wrote about the best barside outdoor smoking areas a few months ago = 1 point.
And our winner, for banning the words “Brangelina” and “TomKat” from the English language, and providing useful tips for unicorn hunting – in one article! = 475,892,563 points, via CSMonitor.
