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 email@example.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 Bossy Vaginas, Scottish Geese and Expensive Chile
By Amelia Olson [ Thu Feb 5 2015 2:54 PM ]
Your vagina is a boss!
If you’re a teen who texts and drives, a New Mexican college student is in the process of releasing an app that will track every move you make while operating a vehicle!
The University of Vermont acknowledges a third gender and allows students to be identified by their chosen first name, even if they have not legally changed their name yet. They also honor preferred pronouns. AKA VERMONT RULES.
The woman who famously called Angelina Jolie a “talentless brat” (um, hasn’t she seen Hackers?) stepped down from her position at Sony.
A totally irrelevant piece about Scottish geese.
There is no price too high to keep us from our chile, but dammit if we don’t get more rain.

The new Ghostbusters movie has an all female cast!
Drinking soda may cause early menses.
This woman had 13 pounds of pot hidden in her car and had no idea. I’ve only ever found a kind of scratched cd labeled “DAD’S MIX” in my car :(
A thoughtful piece on Tent City.
In Florida they have zombie cats!
Here is a disco version of "Suicide Is Painless" .
Some tips on surviving catastrophe.

Prince turned down an opportunity to be on The Simpsons and less surprisingly so did Tom Cruise!
"NO ONE UNDERSTANDS ME!" says Selena Gomez at Taylor Swift's 25th birthday party.
If your life feels terrible right now, or you're nursing an incredible hang over from a work holiday party, watch this video of puppies playing with their mom in the snow. It'll make you feel better.
Proof that you can return all the expensive gifts you got for your children and give them onions and bananas instead!
Oh SNAP! BBC is gettin' real with this list of the worst CEOs of 2014!
Garfield! Because everyone needs more Garfield in their life.
Everything is actually more terrible than we realized, because someone stole a disabled veteran's dog from a gas station on Wyoming.
And for anyone who says there isn't anything to do in Albuquerque, here is a comprehensive guide to ALL the things to do today!

The Daily Word In Pissing Kate Middleton Off, Dogs Dressed Up As Turkeys And A 6-Year-Old Girl's Skateboarding Posse
By Amelia Olson [ Wed Nov 26 2014 12:14 PM ]
It’s Wednesday November 26th and this rude ass storm is ruining Thanksgiving!
Meanwhile in Southern California, three six-year-old girls are cooler than we will ever be, and skateboard all the damn time.
In Pakistan, 20-year-old Aansoo Kohli teaches 150 children in a shed, isn’t paid for the job, and is finishing her Bachelors Degree,
And if you’re American and you're reading this from your tent outside Best Buy while you wait for a 99 cent TV, joke's on you! You’re doing it wrong!
A local “cafeteria angel” is paying off student lunch debts at elementary schools anonymously and depositing money into needy families' bank accounts, because apparently some people care about other people?
And while the rest of us are consuming questionable amounts of alcohol this “holiday” season and arguing with our racist in-laws, these dogs are all that really matter this Thanksgiving.
Americans can't do anything right. We can’t even dress ourselves! Which really pisses Kate Midleton off. C'mon, you guys! Get it together!
Merry happy Thanksgiving, or whatever. Don’t drink and drive.
The Daily Word in Grandmas Who Get High, Ryan Gosling's "Twin Soul" Stalker and America Doesn't Need Gun Regulations, Duh!
By Amelia Olson [ Fri Nov 21 2014 11:53 AM ]
It’s Friday November 21st 2014 and people still send things in the mail!
Meanwhile in California, a totally stable and pretty nice lady left a doll catalog on the front steps of Ryan Gosling's house, because she is his “twin soul”. This happened after Gosling's sister didn’t respond to the woman’s countless emails. RUDE.
And turtles really loved Truth or Consequences 90 million years ago.
If any of you wondered what your grandma does between reading Readers Digest and eating at Crackle Barrel, here’s a clue ,
Add College Universities to the most terrifying places to coexist.
AnD cOpS hErE rEaLly Do JuSt Go WiTh ThE *f~l*o~w*~*!
Truly meaningful things happen all the time,
And this Golden Retriever lived out what we all dream of doing at buffets.
CALL THE FBI! WE NEED TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF HOW THIS MISSING NEW MEXICAN KITTEN ENDED UP IN A DUFFEL BAG IN MAINE!
And even though the world is mostly terrible, this 100 year old woman visited the ocean for the first time in her life on an all expenses paid vacation.

Napkin Art #15: ABQ 505 Squiggleydoo
By Nick Brown [ Tue Jul 28 2009 4:43 PM ]
I can’t remember much about the woman who made today’s napkin except that she’s a kickass artist and was super kind to draw a napkin for me. Stark spaces, bold lines and a sense of collapsing symmetry underscore a message of iconic (ironic?) local pride. It’s destined to be a classic. Thank you, napkin lady.
