We have a slight crisis, and I need all my minions to respond. Apparently, the City of Austin has decided to rename the Solid Waste Services Department, and idiots that they are, they are letting people VOTE on this! And not on pre-approved choices! My favorite is the Department of Neat and Clean. Isn’t that freaking adorable?
So here’s where the crisis comes in: someone, attempting to be clever, submitted the name “Fred Durst Society of the Humanities and Arts”. Yes Fred Durst of the band Limp Bizkit that was torturing all of us in the 90s.
And guess what else I discovered? These bastards over at somethingawful.com are attempting to hijack this vote!! They planted this name and are trying to get tons of people to vote for that awful name!!
Minions!!! We cannot allow this travesty to take place!! You are officially ACTIVATED!!! Please vote for Neat and Clean, as that is in second place, and we can hopefully overtake the horrific jackasses!!!
PS. Shout out to Jessica who always finds cool stuff to show me and get me riled up.
UPDATE: I scooped NPR on this story! Here’s their link. And thanks for all your comments on this. They are apparently not displaying, but I am receiving them. Thanks!!
