Friday Bits of Tid, 2010 Auld Lang Syne Edition

Now it's time to say goodbye to 2010.

Good Riddance! Adios! Don't let the door hit you on the way out! Begone!

"Leave, and never darken my towels again!" Groucho Marx

I, for one, will be glad to get this year over with, as I'm sure you all will. Politically, it's been filled with things that I never though I'd see or hear, although there is a ray of sunshine courtesy of last Novembers' election. There is a decent chance that we can stop this lurch to the left that the current administration seems hell-bent on taking us.

R. Lee Ermey captures the sentiment well. Thanks, Ace.

On this day, General George C. Marshall was born in 1880. He authored the Marshall Plan and had a space flight center named in his honor.

From the "bothered conscience" files come these two stories:

Man returns library book 76 years later.

Thief pays for hammer stolen decades ago.

Kill a snowman, lose your job. It's only fair.

This was completely unnecessary. 1,914 guitars are smashed simultaneously.

The devil made me do it. Man blames Ozzy Osborne for traffic arrest.

Duude, you can make this red light if you floor it, man.

He was probably on his way to this pot, munchie, Doritos festfood drive.

The Abbey Road crossing has been given "listed status", which we can only assume is the equivalent of our "historic site". Who knows, I can't decipher British.

And finally, a drive-thru sex toy shop in Alabama. Which is more notable, that there's one of these at all, or the loophole in Alabama law that permits sex toys for "legislative, judicial or law enforcement purposes"?

Happy New Year, ya'll.
