Panda loves snow

So, it’s snowing today in the nation’s capital, which is friggin’ annoying, but you know who fucking loves it? That’s right, that little bastard Bao Bao, our resident kind-of-a-baby panda at the National Zoo. It’s his first snow, and he friggin’ loves it. Like the bastard he is.

Anyways, carry on with your miserable day.

Little girl is super sad that George Washington is not our current president

Sick of campaign ads?  Disgusted by the DC insiders and/or Tea Party outsiders running for office?  This four-year-old girl, who just finished learning about early American history and became very enamored of our first president, feels your pain.

Just a drunk guy on the D.C. Metro singing some Lil Jon

It’s Monday, and cold and rainy here in D.C., so here’s something kind of fun. Just in case you missed it (or don’t subscribe to D.C. local blogs), here’s a guy late night on the train, rousing everybody with a winning rendition of Lil Jon’s “Get Low.” He stops for about two minutes, then the greatest part of the video happens. You’re welcome.

Ninety percent of fast food cooks will be affected by D.C. raising the minimum wage

Minimum wage impact

D.C. recently passed a law gradually increasing  the minimum wage, from $8.25 to $11.50 by 2016. According to a report by the D.C. Fiscal Policy Institute, this will affect ninety percent of D.C. fast-food cooks.

I don’t have much more to say about that, except it’s a damned shame we have to have this job-killing minimum wage, because corporations would be paying workers way better without it. Or something. Unleash the free market or whatnot.
