The Weekend Desk Report

Once again, you'll have to pardon us as we prepare for the on-coming Apocalypse. Here are the main stories for the weekend.

Market Update
The value of gold has reached record highs over the past few weeks. As it turns out, so has the value of Golden.

Fired Up
Take heart, America. It turns out you can oust your incredibly unpopular management. Unfortunately, it usually takes a couple of election cycles. And, frankly, you're still fucked in the meantime.

Open Fire
In fact, the global economy may soon prove so unstable that no one will be left with a pot to piss in.

Mission: Impossible
The central problem with these long-running blockbuster franchises is that, eventually, the plotlines get too outlandish and the aging action star with the unlikely hair isn't believable, no matter how much couch-jumping - literal and figurative - he does.

Crowned Head
Incidentally, isn't one governor with a pompadour and a tenuous grasp on reality enough?

Takes One to Know One
Finally this week, for dessert you get to write your own punch line.
