Do as little work today as possible!

No work for me!

No work for me!

It’s World Cup time, folks. What, never heard of the World Cup? Well, it’s nothing less than the global phenomenon during which drunk Brits beat each other with lager bottles, where Germans visit brothels for sport, where everyone goes crazy for football, and–here comes the truth, folks–people in the United States neglect their work, wives, children, and responsibilities by pretending to care about a game they never played, don’t understand, find vaguely effeminate, and would completely ignore if it didn’t mean watching television at work.

That and we’re going to get our ass kicked by England! Woo hoo!

Vive le sport!

    Any chance Americans get to gather, drink, wear an American flag as a cape, and chant U.S.A. is never passed up. If they sold beer, and Nike made a commercial pumping it up, people would show up to a world chess showdown ready to chant.

"When we met my dad at Starbucks he said I couldn’t play with his laptop but I forgot. He also said don’t fool around with his phone but I think I FaceTimed Australia. My dad sighed and published a short piece on Medium about the challenges of raising kids in the digital age."
