These newspaper vendors are comedians

Orogun urged publishers and practitioners not to upload news online till about 12 noon, so that the vendors would have made appreciable sales by then. He said, “online news have drastically slowed down sales of hard cover newspapers; you can imagine a situation where you go to distribute papers in offices and you’ll see them already posting comments about trending stories on their phones. It’s very discouraging.” According to him, “It is really affecting us negatively, that we cannot boast of selling up to 300 copies a day, when we used to sell over 700 copies a day in the past. We do not know what to do any more, that is why we are appealing to publishers not to allow their stories to be online early, that they should post their daily news online as from 12 noon when newspapers would have sold reasonable copies.”


Weird Al Yankovic puts a spin on Robin Thicke’s blurred lines. I haven’t even listened to Blurred lines to the end, but I’m sure I prefer Weird Al’s version.

Gotta love Weird Al. First song of his I happened on in 2007 (I think) was don’t download this song. Hilarious.

I deezered the track and discovered it’s just one in a whole new album (Mandatory Fun) Weird Al’s just released which includes riffs on popular contemporary tracks like Pharell’s “Happy” (turned “Tacky”), and Lorde’s “Royals”.
