To lighten up your weekend, I offer the following stories I noticed this morning on BoingBoing:
From Craigslist, an anonymous stoner expresses his thanks to the similarly baked employee at the local pizzeria who took his order for the Best Pizza Evar.
I called you from my cell phone but had completely forgot who I was calling by the time you answered the phone. Of course, you were also baked to bajeezus and forgot to tell me that I had called Cottage Inn.
When you answered and said, “Whatsup?” I thought about it, and after a 20 second pause I told you that was hungry. You suggested I try a pizza, and I agreed that it was probably a good idea.
Then I asked you if you sold pizza and you said that you could make me one. I said I wanted anchovies and something else on my pizza. You asked me what that something else was.
We spent five minutes listing toppings until we figured out that I was trying to remember how to say: “Sun dried Tomatoes.” When you said: “We’ll bake that right up for you,” we both started laughing uncontrollably.
It was the best pizza I ever had; I just wanted to thank you for helping me out.
And, in the second half of your Saturday Netkooks twofer, I give you the following from the US Patent Office:
37. A method for offering marriage to an individual by utilizing a patent application to offer marriage to the individual, the method comprising: drafting a patent application, wherein the patent application is drafted in a tangible medium; drafting a marriage proposal that proposes marriage to the individual, wherein the marriage proposal is drafted in a tangible medium; incorporating the marriage proposal into the patent application; presenting the patent application to the individual during a proposal event; signing the patent application; and sending the patent application to the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
I read and enjoyed the whole thing. It’s sweet, in a nerdy romantic-comedy sort of way.
