The Weekend Desk Report

Speaking of freedom of expression, it looks like the American media is still too chicken-shit to say "pussy."

Market Update
Looks like today's Groupon is Groupon, available for a 37% discount while supplies last. Which could be a while.

Trendspotting
Apparently, "shirtless" was the second most popular shirt term associated with newly-minted telegenic Republican blowhard Paul Ryan last week. The Weekend Desk can now exclusively reveal the rest of the Top Five:

5. Hairshirt

4. Shirttails

3. Tea Shirt

1. Full of Shirt

Trendspotting Redux
Is it too late to start questioning Paul Ryan's personhood?

Self-Loathing
Cheer up, Paul. Had he lived, Beethoven would hate your ass too.

Strike It Poor
Of course, there's still the chance that America could be saved by a sudden push of negotiation and bipartisanship. But we'll keep the presses running. You know, just in case.
