It's a good time to be alive when you can pee and snap a photo of stall graffiti in hopes of winning some cool loot from your local alt. weekly!

We especially loved this post by @genevievemueller,

but this post by @durwoodkerbyburger sums up the human experience of using public stalls and therefore is this week's winner!

Congrats to @durwoodkerbyburger! Email amelia@alibi.com to retrieve your surprise and alibi bucks. And thanks to our pals on Instagram who posted. Stay tuned for next week's photo contest guidelines!

The Daily Word in mental health taxes, a house thief and true love

By Mark Lopez [ Fri Feb 27 2015 9:11 AM ]
The Daily Word

Eight people died last night in a series of shootings in south-central Missouri.

Jim Inhofe provided a little show-and-tell on the Senate floor.

A California couple who'd been married for 67 years died on the same day while holding hands. That's love, y'all.

Porn lovers can rejoice, as Google has lifted the “explicit sexual content” ban on Blogger.

Season 3 of “House of Cards” is now live on Netflix, y'all! Note: SPOILERS in the following link.

A Rio Rancho mother is “disturbed” by a pornographic book her son checked out of his high school library.

Bernalillo County commissioners approved a tax hike that'll go to mental health services.

Snap! APS has decided to close schools today. Snow day!

Apparently, a thief in Oregon stole an entire house. No, really.

The Daily Word in racist fashion police, net neutrality and GIANT black holes!

By Amelia Olson [ Thu Feb 26 2015 11:53 AM ]
The Daily Word

It's Thursday! Not exactly as good as Friday, but still pretty damn good.

The Internet may not be owned by a few corporations soon because Washington seems to be pretty down with net neutrality!

There is a black hole that is 12 billion times larger than the sun and is 900 million years old.

Zendaya Coleman elegantly explained why assuming dreadlocks smell like “patchouli oil” or “weed” is racist and weird. Giuliana Rancic apologizes. The internet gives Coleman a giant high five.

A new proposal would require Lyft and Uber drivers to provide insurance and undergo extensive background checks.

Surveys conclude that over half of all farm workers in America lack “legitimate documents” and therefore have no legal rights or protection.

The Daily Word in Men's Rights, cryptozoology, PARCC and Tom Joles

By Ty Bannerman [ Wed Feb 25 2015 9:03 AM ]
The Daily Word

Good morning, it’s Wednesday, February 25,

and KOB anchorman Tom Joles is having a time-out after a rumored physical altercation with one of his fellow reporters,

it turns out that even beatniks can be beautiful,

a GQ reporter visited a “Men’s Rights” conference and found out that those guys are kind of a bunch of assholes,

2 million cars in the US are outfitted with remote-shut-off technology that can, and has been, hacked,

aiming laser pointers at police helicopters remains a great way to get arrested, even if you say you're sorry,

students and parents continue to protest an upcoming standardized test,

and a local researcher says the uptick in chupacabra sightings is due in part to global warming.

Have a great day!

The Daily Word in alien license plates, the religion of Cher and gerbils causing the plague

By Amelia Olson [ Tue Feb 24 2015 10:35 AM ]

It's Tuesday and the sun is shining here in Albuquerque. JK! It's freezing.

It’s snowing! It’s snowing! CLOSE ALL THE SCHOOLS! CANCEL WORK!

You’re chewing too loud! Apparently there is a name for the feeling of rage you experience when the person next to you is breathing too loud.

Rats are not to blame for the Black Death! A new study suggests gerbils are the actual culprits in the “second plague pandemic.”

Feeding your baby peanut butter might prevent her from serious nut allergies in the future. Peanut butter for the win! PS. Don’t try this at home.

Cher calls out Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson for vetoing a bill that would allow for more LGBT anti-discrimination laws. Like we needed any more reasons to worship Cher.

New Mexico wants to offer license plates that have anything from aliens to horned lizards on them. Duh. Let them do it.
