When Overzealous Local-News Affiliates RT Without Thinking

Philadelphia’s Fox affiliate went on an RTing tirade this morning, ostensibly in support of its new weekend-morning program (and National Pet Day). This zealousness prompted early-morning me to throw some spaghetti up against the wall to see if it stuck. Which, as you can see above, it did. Which, as you can see below, it…

Horrible Person Patricia Teijeiro Paulson Likes Blaming Hit-And-Run Victims, Posting Racist Comments Online

This Guy Literally Beared A Monday-Morning Cross In Philadelphia

A city that’s already seen a Jesus impersonator intervene in a brawl between a skateboarder and LOVE Park ranger, that city being Philadelphia, was treated to some more Biblical hijinks on Monday morning.
