Oh, Here's Monday Again. Joy.

At this point, I could start a blog called "Stupid Sh*t Politicians Say" and every day I'd probably have a dozen new stories to share.  Like this one.  Can these people not hear themselves when they speak?? (Care2)

I'm not the only one getting sick of the stupid, sexist, and sometimes homophobic vitriol these politicians spew.  Chris Kluwe, punter for the Minnesota Vikings and all-around awesome dude, wrote an eloquent, hilariously biting response to a Maryland delegate who was offended that an NFL player supports gay marriage.  He even edited that response when readers complained about his use of naughty language.  My new goal is to work "Alas and alack my top hat has fallen!" into everyday conversations.  I love this man.  (Out of Bounds)

Well, this is one way to ensure you won't get your quadruplets all mixed up!  (Laughing Squid)

There are some pretty tasty-sounding suggestions in this list.  I might have to give that mac & cheese gnocchi idea a whirl!  (Easy Food)

Did you know that you can vote for your favorite public bathroom in a contest called "America's Best Restroom"?  Yup.  That's a thing, apparently.  (Best Restroom h/t BoingBoing)

This marriage proposal gets a 1-up from me.  (Geeks Are Sexy)

You may have read about the 16 year old girl who tweeted about wanting the President to be assassinated.  Well, one of the very few things that the First Amendment doesn't protect is a threat against the President, so now the Secret Service is investigating.  Some may think that's an extreme response, but I think she (and probably countless other of social media users) needs to be taught that actions have consequences.  (Detroit Free Press)

I love this collection of school photos of famous authors.  The yearbook blurbs next to Maurice Sendak's and Margaret Atwood's pictures are sublime.  (The Atlantic)

Two guys, fighting over a woman, end up arrested on various charges.  Sounds like a normal crime report, right?  Only this feud led to a flight from Philly being rerouted and federal charges being filed.  If I'd been one of the passengers on the flight, I would've been pissed!  (Time)

Here's a sweet little story about a mother who compares her family to Brangelina's because she has a little boy who happens to like girly things.  (Hello Giggles)

And now, every NFL fan in just 90 seconds.
