Procrastinate on This! Brought To You By Friends of FaN

Guys, I don’t know about you, but I’m just exhausted. How dare our employers make us continue to slave away like this. You know what you should do? That’s right, procrastinate. Here are 5 things to get you started, courtesy of a bunch of tips from Friends of FaN. Thanks, Friends!

1. What if White People Riot? Sadly, I had to depend on my white friend, Howard L, to point me towards this great article about how insulting it is for the media to keep asking “what if black people riot if Obama’s not elected,” when apparently there’s a lot more rage on display in non-black corners of the country right now. But I suppose that’s why they call it a melting pot. Read the full article here.

2. CH sent me this link in an email with the dramatic subject line “please don’t click on this link if you want to get anything done today.” I won’t say whether that claim is true or not. But I will point out that this week’s “Procrastinate on This!” is over an hour and a half late. And I will also warn you ahead of time that this link leads to a list of the 150 Best Online Flash Games. Good luck.

3. Both Brian V and CH sent me links to this upsetting article about the current HIV scare going on at my alma mater, Normandy Senior High School, in St. Louis, MO. Because of the ages of everyone involved, the details are sketchy to the point of serious confusion. But if you went to Normandy (or just want to be happy that you didn’t) read the article here.

And after the jump, two random videos, sent to me by a co-worker. One a surprisingly awesome mash-up of Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” and the Soggy Bottom Boys “Man of Contant Sorrow.” Then like five minutes later, he sent round a funny Russian “Teliskop”ode to Sarah Palin, which I’m fairly sure was filmed in L.A. The sad thing is that we’re really busy. But we make time for this boys and girls. We make time for this.
