“Tumblr prides itself on being a home for brands, established and emerging, we at Yahoo are all about brands,” Mayer said on the call.
not to be too too too cynical but I know all the people I follow on Tumblr and all the people who follow me are united in one thing and one thing only: their ravenous enthusiasm for brands. “I came for the sense of a new community, one with a keen feel for the visual but with a passion for language, too,” they say, “but it’s the brands that keep me here. Sweet Christ I love brands. Let the mountains collapse into dust and the oceans all boil, but give me brands,” they cry in the night. I personally remember, as a child, pleading with my parents to let me interface with my favorite brands. And interface we did. With the brands. The glorious, glorious brands
A little girl in my 4th grade class came up to me after recess and said, “I got married at recess!” and I said “Oh? I didn’t know anyone was ordained under the age of twelve.” and she asked me what ordained meant and I explained and then she said “Oh, well, no, my wife and I were married by the slide, but we’ll be happy together anyway.”
So apparently on school playgrounds, slides are already legalizing same-sex marriage.
|Friend:||I locked myself out of my apartment. Can I have a spare key?|
|Apartment Lady:||Sure. Can I just see an ID?|
|Friend:||I don’t have one.|
|Lady:||Do you have anything to prove it’s you?|
|Lady:||Well, okay. Here you go. Do you have anything you could leave so I know you’ll bring the spare key back?|
|Friend:||*looks around* Umm… I could give you my shoes?|
|Lady:||...That’s okay. Just make sure you bring the key right back.|
