Get Bused, Get Omnibused

It’s that time again — time for some bigtime link aggregation. So strap in and enjoy the ride, y’all.
PA liquor laws are stupid, unpopular. Sky blue, Pope Catholic, Queen English.
I pride myself on being a bit of a geek, but getting the real Boba Fett to show up and object to your Star Wars/Labyrinth-themed wedding is just off the charts.
USA Today writers: tragically unhip, they pine for earlier days and shake their fists impotently at those “darn kids”.
Rope-less jumprope? Stupidest. Idea. EVER.
Christopher Hitchens has a brother and, wouldn’t you know it, they’re polar opposites. What a weird world we live in.

I love liberal columnists. A philandering, faithless Chief Executives that lied under oath to a Federal grand jury, hey, no problem! An ex-VP and Presidential candidate takes to the Convention stage and lays a huge, creepy, tongue-filled kiss on his wife? More’s the better!
