Someone told me that the moon was made of cheese. I don't think that's true. I mean, aside from the fact that cows can't breathe in space, you would have the time to make that much cheese? He's gotta be lying, right?

Not a fan of the deadspin gawker collective?
Dan Szymborski
1:53
Deadspin's fine, but the larger gawker umbrella is too tabloidy for me.
1:54
Deadspin's the best of the Gawker bunch for sure
Which I would wager is due to the presence of the excellent Tim Marchman.

A pear. Unripe ones are like rocks and the shape would make everything kind of funny.

Dan Szymborski

Yes

A priest, a rabbi, and a Buddhist monk walk into a bar. The bar has a good lunch special and they are friends and like to spend time together once a month to catch up on events.
