I love finding all the adult jokes that went over-my-head as a child watching TV, via mishasminions:

Today in Fox News irony

Boom.

Heh.

Ironic that I didn’t read anything about this in the news today…

New York Times Staffers Stage Walkout Over Contract Negotiations
Huffington Post with the story.
For background, see Jim Romenesko here and here.
One of the oddities is that the Times, after working to combine its print and digital operations, is proposing separate contracts for print and digital reporters.
In a memo to colleagues, the Newspaper Guild at the New York Times writes, “Any proposal to dismantle the decade of work that has been done to unify the newsroom, securing its place as the world’s premier news organization, could be laughed off as far-fetched legal gimmickry. After all, that would be an act of self-immolation. But even if it’s not worth serious consideration, it has landed just we are heading at full speed toward a crisis over genuine issues like our pay and benefits.”

Yup. Pretty much sums up our holiday weekend plans. By the way, if you haven’t seen Simon Pegg’s hilarious sitcomSpaced, check it out here and your weekend can be just as fulfilling as ours. Now how’s that for a slice of fried gold!

I want a design that will appeal both to the ‘ironic-mustache’ crowd, and the ‘thug-life tattoo gangster’ crowd. Got that?

SUBWAY DOUCHERY : Farewell to Hipster  
Today we say goodbye to some old friends… My flannels… assorted thrift store denims… and several Ironic T-shirts. We’ve had a good run fellas… a real good run… but I’m pushing 30 years old and I can’t have people wondering if I’m a hipster or a vagrant anymore… They need to know I’m just a hipster…
Flannels… You guys were the best, keeping me warm and perfectly sloppy all at the same time.. you were in style… you were outta style… then back in again… and then no one was sure but we kept on wearing you because you are surprisingly comfortable yet functional.. I’m gonna miss looking like the Brawny Man’s gay son.
Assorted thrift store denims… Heck, we knew we were throwing the dice when we bought you! You smelled funny and everyone knows someone that developed a really bad rash because they didn’t wash you first… but when I was going through my Ryan Adams/Urban Cowboy phase… GODDAMIT! I didn’t know who I was but you didn’t care… you complimented my cowboy boots you didn’t make fun…
Ironic T-shirts…. where do I begin? I suppose I’m going to miss you the most… You were the stand by… the right or wrong… never say die… but when your arm pits started to yellow and harden… and the holes around the neck got too big to be cool… and then I wasn’t sure if the Billy Joel River of Dreams Tour shirts was Ironic anymore because I started actually loving the album so much… we have to say goodbye because I’m not sure who I am anymore.. 
You will be buried at a miscellaneous park in Brooklyn… because I’m not even sure which is the cool one anymore… I’ll see you on the other side.. in this life or the next..
*** A thousand condolences to Ironlace for sending in this picture. We’ve had a good life but we can’t keep living like this… Stay Alive & Keep on Douchin’ ***

Now that @twitter is rolling out its own in-house URL shortener, I wonder if bit.ly is starting to get worried? http://bit.ly/9REurN
@JDCoffman on Twitter.  I’m not sure if he grasped the irony of sharing this news through a bit.ly link (but I wouldn’t put it past him).
