Friday Bits of Tid, Constitution Day Edition

Today marks Constitution Day. On 17 September 1787, in Philadelphia, the Framers of the American Constitution added their signatures to the document they had produced, and soon thereafter it was dispatched to the Continental Congress for consideration by the states. Later today, I plan to sit down with a cold Samuel Adams beer and read that wondrous document. It caused many things to happen, a war not the least among them, ultimately resulting in the the greatest advancement of the human condition in history, politically, socially and scientifically. We should feel humbled and grateful.

Let the tidding commence.

Romanian witches get tax relief. Afraid of being turned into a frog, are we?

The fastest lawyers in the world.

Politics in DC has gone to the dogs. Literally.

Your right to swing your fist cat stops at my nose.

Hamburger chains Krystal and White Castle genetically design the world's smallest cow. Does it have square hooves?

This has to violate at least one law of physics. How to get and cure the munchies at the same time: pot-infused ice cream.

More vintage advertisements.

We're more like SpongeBob SquarePants than we think.

And finally, blogging will be light/sporadic/intermittant for a while. BackwardsGirl and I are moving into new digs. Much to be done, but it's right down the street.

You're all invited to help, of course.
