There are three reasons I like this video. 1. There’s a grown ass man in a baby carrier. 2. It features Grizz from 30 Rock. 3. Whenever we have Gracie in her sling, someone says, “I wish I could get carried around like that.” Every time.

Just saw this newish video from Paper Fortress about a trip to Vietnam.
This is a couple seasons old, but if you want to get warmed up for tonight’s season finale, this is worth your nine minutes. Don and Betty’s house wasn’t a set, it was actually a house. Also learn about Sally’s real-life mom and how Jon Hamm got the part of Don Draper.
I’mma let you finish, bad British baseball commentary, but the Irish sailing commentary from last year is the best silly commentary of all time.
Last year’s Dollar Shave Club commercial was amazingly successful at getting people talking about Dollar Shave Club. It was refreshing, funny, and seemed to come from out of nowhere. I called it the best commercial of the year. I can’t imagine them ever topping it, so it’s not surprising this follow up commercial isn’t as good. On the other hand, it’s a product designed primarily to get people talking about it. And here I am. Again, the commercial isn’t as funny, but the product just might be the first to successfully disrupt the almighty toilet paper industry.
True story: Senior year in college, I had a fiction workshop taught by a Pulitzer prize winner and one of the two stories was about a guy who invented some sort of limited wipe technology, which had the evil Toilet Paper Lobby all up in a tizzy. I should try to find that story.
Not bad. This is about a year old, but my drafts folder has been neglected.
The latest Perennial Plate video makes me want to go back to Barcelona more than I already do. Which is a lot.
Kind of needed this video of a cat licking a vacuum hose this week. They have the weirdest cats in Russia.
The Perennial Plate team got engaged last month and celebrated by posting an endearing love story from a Sri Lankan tea farm.
