Weekly News

Hello all! It is time once again for my blathering about randomness. I like randomness. If you’ve read me before, you know this. I think it’s a positive quirk. 🙂

This first story could start a war if I dropped it into the midst of a writer’s conference. Proof that the Oxford comma has a role. Can you tell which side I’d fight on?

This is so cute. The sheep let the rabbits hitch a ride, and the rancher gave them a pass since they were smart enough to figure out such a solution. Good all the way around. This gave me the feels.

In science news, the weirdest condemnation of putting on all the colors to attract a mate. Apparently, it increases the risk of extinction. Intriguing, but also a bit humorous.

That’s all for me tonight. See you back here in seven.

    Smart rabbits.

    Interesting story about overtime and the comma. It’s placement or lack of placement made a difference there. DLP always uses the Oxford comma.
