On "A day doesn’t go by where you don’t hear about more bank layoffs and branch closings."

@jfruh I know, right?! You mean to tell me 5-6 people repackaged BILLIONS in bad debt and resold it all over the WORLD to hundreds of thousands of people? [And at the same time, I have to keep in check my abject hatred for these people, because--at least theoretically--they are humans and have parents and kids, etc.]

On UFOs Caught On Video Over Brooklyn and San Francisco

On Today Only: The Awl Is Auditioning New Commenters!

this is like that dream one has where everybody one has ever met in one's life is there, context-free, but just as beloved. also: i think you're missing a slot for passive-aggressive Canadian commenter always referring to "up here".

On How Not to Kiss in Paris

You know, I live in Montreal and we do the bizous thing to a lesser extent. So I will spill the haricots verts: it's not codified, it's not complex, people just do it because they're tired and hung-over and it's endearing--depending on whom you are kissing, I guess.

@John Ore Beef straw really really sounds like a euphemism.

On My Conversation With A Wells Fargo Fraud Specialist

for me this is hilariously funny because i do in real life find myself telling retail folks and others way too much superfluous information, and they're all like, "You don't get out much, do you?"

On Spanish Jambalaya Casserole

@John Ore: This looks kind of awesome! But the beer in the Mason jar: are you not afraid of putting a tooth out, dude?
