Today’s chuckle

Given that my name is Jennifer, I haven’t had too many experiences with Starbucks baristas spelling it wrong. Well, beyond the occasional “Jeniffer.”

This video imagines a more nefarious motivation behind the misspellings (to hilarious effect).

Note: some NSFW language.

Enjoy!

I bought it: Hipster Calendar

According to Forbes, that estimable evaluator of trends and hipness, I live in the third “Best Hipster Neighborhood” also known as Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

It will come as no surprise, then, that this exists.hipster calendar

Perhaps more surprising: the fact that I bought one for $15.

How could I resist tattoos and antlers?

I found this calendar at The Lodge‘s General Store on Havemeyer in Williamsburg. My regular barista told me that he didn’t get his own month this year because “he got too drunk during the shoot.”

A sign near the calendars says ‘proceeds go to charity.’ I asked which one and was told about a ‘friend with cancer’ but really, I just wanted a funny calendar for my kitchen.

Sadly the folks at The Lodge don’t seem to sell the calendar online. Missed opportunity.
