Why so serious?

First Child – MIA

No, not the MIA with the planes.  I know, I’ve been missing in action.  What’s my excuse? Um, homework. No, but seriously, I have exams coming up  in two weeks and they are kinda important. Aren’t I too old for exams? The short answer’s “yes”, and the long answer’s “hell yes”.  So ja, thats what it’s like. But from 3 weeks, I promise to be more regular. Wait, that sounds kinda dodgy. I dont mean it like that.

Anyway, the point of this post is that with exams around the corner, I have found some good work-avoidance-sites, chief among these being McSweeneys .  You can while away many hours. Here for instance are their recession Nursery Rhymes.

Jack and Jill: OK, so Jack and Jill went up the hill, to fetch a pail of water. But, listen, even water is expensive nowadays. So Jack just innocently asked, “Do you really have to wash your hair every night?” Then, of course, they started getting into it, and Jill became pretty damn passive-aggressive, and unnecessarily, I might add. So then Jack fell down—maybe on accident, maybe on purpose—and he broke his crown. And, with no health insurance, they were both shit outta luck.

The whole thing

There’s also a bit on bad halloween costumes:

PHIL: That’s nothing. I remember one year my parents gave me a color TV set, made me run down the block, and then they called the cops on me. My costume was “the Thief.”


And then, you have to check out the lists. Now go get back to work.
