Man, the weather was beautiful over the weekend, yeah? So beautiful, in fact, that the weird/fun/sick/otherwise remarkable news cycle seemed to almost shut down for a couple of days. Here's yer slim pickin's.
FRIDAY, APRIL 8:
A Rick Scott PAC fired back at the woman who called him an asshole in that viral video, releasing a
commercial name-calling video of their own. Because that's how you get stuff to go away.
That Hernando sex offender who cut off his monitoring ankle bracelet earlier in the week was recaptured. OK, we'll ask the question everyone is obviously dying to: What's up with this guy's lip?
SATURDAY, APRIL 9:
That contest to rename a part of U.S. HWY 19 between Holiday and Hudson now has eight finalists. Yup, they're about as unique and inspired as you'd expect for a stretch of Pasco asphalt, but what's infinitely worse is the list of "joke names" TBO.com culled for the article, thereby implying they were the best on offer.
Beyond America's Wang(tm): High school students in Princeton, NJ are being investigated after a photo of them playing a version of beer pong called "Jews vs. Nazis" showed up on the web. Are we still being shocked by what stupid teens will A) think is funny and B) allow themselves to be photographed doing? Is that still a thing? We need some let's-just-beat-them-senseless-and-move-on legislation on the books.
SUNDAY, APRIL 10:
And finally, what the hell is the Frozen Four? Anyway, apparently it went well.
