Keep news weird

May 28, 2014

New York Times’ Mike Grynbaum reports that De Blasio’s Latest Break With His Predecessors is Ending a Ban on Ferrets. Michael Roston there tweeted, “.@grynbaum gets Rudy Giuliani on the phone to talk about ferrets.” Thornton McEnery from Crain's New York Business called it: “Horses and Chimnies and Ferrets, Oh My…”

There’s a Kickstarter fund from LeVar Burton & Reading Rainbow making the rounds today. It plans to Bring Reading Rainbow Back for Every Child, Everywhere. Serenity Caldwell at Macworld urged, “Children of the 80s & 90s: Your pocketbooks are beckoning you to bring Reading Rainbow to the web and schools.” Kyle Orland at Ars Technica put it into a song: “Kickstarter in the skyyyyyyyyyy... funding goes twice as hiiiiiiiiigh.”

For a laugh, you can watch 50 Cent throw a Really nice first pitch last night. Or just the opposite of that. Ashley Codianni with Mashable shared, “I wasn't going to click on 50 Cent's horrible first pitch from last night, but then I did and you should, too.” Dara Healy from Storyful had another suggestion: “Get it together Curtis.”
