During Shutdown, Fast Food Workers in Government Buildings Are Shit Out of Luck

While plenty of furloughed federal workers are packing bars during the shutdown, flashing government IDs to snag deals on beers and tacos, another segment of the local workforce has found itself out of a job without the hope of receiving back pay, or even the dignity of being "furloughed."

This Halloween, Don’t Dress Up as Food

Does anyone really think dressing up as a taco or a banana or a PEZ dispenser is a good idea for a Halloween costume? Halloween is all about creativity–and free candy. C'mon, folks. Use your imagination. Going as a piece of meat is just a bad idea on all fronts. Going as a walking product [...]
