Happy Ash Wednesday, to those of you who celebrate 40 days of giving up something meaningful in your life. I’ve tried my hand at a bit of Lent before, but my Ash Wednesday resolution to not tickle my pickle for more than a month was a goal that ended up being ambitiously rubbish for me within a few minutes. If you’ve been paying attention today, you might have noticed that I’ve been celebrating Ash Wednesday by hiding good ol’ Ash Williams inside my header images.

Didn’t see him? Here’s where he was hiding, if you weren’t as eagle-eyed as Hammersteyn:

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
