The Weekend Desk Report

Hell, if this suburban DC housewife can raise two young kids while spearheading a Russian spy ring, there's really no excuse for the Weekend Desk to slack off.

Market Update
The wealth gap between Harpies and Trolls grew ever wider this week, as even the wealthiest snatchers struggled to extort a measly $100 million from an online corporation. Meanwhile, even the most mundane Troll seems poised to suck, like, a bazillion dollars out of the top names in the business.

Waste Not Haste?
For the record, the city is currently only hoarding $1 million worth of plastic tubware. Only when those bitches from Clean Sweep show up and toss all the bins on our front lawn can we can say we're throwing $1 million away. And, maybe just this once, we'll be encouraged to feel good about it.

Progn-octo-cation
The unblemished run of Paul the prognosticating octopus is set to end with the World Cup Final on Sunday. It's just as well; experts say Paul's method of predicting by selective eating can't be sustained much longer as he feeds on BP's credibility.

Going Dutch
For the record, we agree with Paul's pick. After all, it's sort of written into the Dutch national anthem.

Transformations
Finally this week, the big-budget feature film Transformers 3 begins its reign of terror in the Loop, kicking off more than a month of shooting. Aside from transforming streets into film sets, the production also seems poised to transform newspapers into PR flaks and respected local thespians into check-cashing fools.
