welcome to the weekend :)

I HAVE A LOT OF HEMP MILK, DOMINIC. JUST SAYIN'.

And this is why The Stranger is my favourite newspaper in the world.

@3: My thoughts exactly.
5
But pot and head go together so nicely!
6
I've always struggled with spelling the artist Pushead's name correctly for this same reasons. Luckily, it really doesn't come up a lot.

This is what hyphens are made for. Just sayin'.
8
Hyphens rule.

Speaking of pot, is the Stranger going to promote the rally to free Marc Emery May 22? It will be at the Henry M. Jackson Federal Bldg from 2 - 4 that Saturday.

I know Dominic thinks the guy is a megalomaniac, and maybe he is, but it's a great way to draw attention to the absurdity of marijuana laws.

I'll be walking past there in about 20 minutes. You don't even have to come downstairs - just open a window and drop one out.
11
Oh, don't be such a shi-theed.

I know pot busts are the lowest priority in Seattle and everything, but don`t you ever worry that posting stuff like this might give any cop with a grudge against the Stranger probable cause to come by your office for a little searchin' and seizin'?
13
How do you spell "Pothast"?
14
This post made me so fuckin happy. *Stranger love*

@12 - Getting busted for pot possession in Seattle .. that would be any Stranger reporter's wet dream.

I'm glad freshness is important to somebody.

One of my favorite lies too spread is that Portishead was originally pronounced porta-shed and it's the name of England's largest portable outhouse company (like honey bucket) but when they started to get big in America their management made them change the pronunciation. It's stupid (I mean, 'shead'?) but it's amazing how may people fall for it, especially when they're a lil' buzzed.
18
haha ok you made me laugh sorry for calling you a stupid fuck 2 seconds ago on another post
19
I'm with ya on the spelling, Dominic - for the longest time when I was a kid I thought "misled" was pronounced "my zld".

*hugs*

This post got me thinking about the similarly annoying "posthumous," prompting me to look up its odd origin:
Postumus was largely used with respect to events occurring after death but not exclusively so, since the word was simply one of the superlative forms of the adverb post, "subsequently, afterward." Because of its use in connection with death, however, later Latin writers decided that the last part of the word must have to do with humus, "earth," or humre, "to bury," and began spelling the word posthumus.
Very clever, Latin dorks.

I love this post for the single reason that it reminded me of some 'special' butter needing to be put to use in the fridge. Nothin' like bakin' in the sun.

In the last decade or so, legal publications have taken to combining the two words, "case law," into one word, "caselaw." Which never fails to make me think of "coleslaw" and distracts me from whatever point the writer is making. All a lot of dumf-uckery, if you ask me.
