Something tasteful, but not too bland

Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis has been covered on MetaFilter before, but the most recent episode takes a turn for the wack at 1:38 with the debut of The Lonely Island's (also previously) newest video "Spring Break Anthem," which takes both a traditional as well as a different--but quite timely given recent events--take on spring break.

Fiscal Cliff Notes

One of those inevitable year-end traditions is Lake Superior State University's List of Banished Words, led this year by the currently ubiquitous "Fiscal Cliff", followed by the related political/economic shorthand "Kick the Can Down the Road". Of course, "YOLO" is on the list (as I predicted), along with "Double Down" (surprisingly NOT in reference to the KFC menu item), "Job Creators", "Spoiler Alert", "Bucket List", "Guru" (didn't Mike Myers kill that word in 2008?), the marketing-speak "Superfood", the twitter-driven verbed noun "Trending", the oxymoronic "Boneless Wings" and this year's pick for 'word that has lost all meaning': "Passionate". Of course, Your Mileage May Vary (YMMV, an acronym not yet banned, but give it time...)
