Hello 2011! Funny story about today’s ION post: Geoff PMed me over Gtalk wailing and gnashing his teeth like a seven year old girl that just watched her pony getting sent to the glue factory. Amidst the shrieks and bouts of hysteria I was able to make out that he was too swamped, couldn’t possibly make it blah blah blah. The ironic thing is that I was also totally swamped at work, but for a fleeting moment my inhuman ability to bite off more than I can chew beat my minute portioning of better judgement. So I put Geoff out of his misery and took today’s ION.

As I did that, however, I too began wailing and gnashing my teeth like a seven year old girl that just watched her pony getting sent to the glue factory. So I did what no other guy in his right mind would do: I asked somebody else to find me a lady to drape herself seductively over the header of today’s ION. Why would any guy willingly fob off such a delightful task? Desperate times, desperate measures people. And to illustrate just how desperate I was, I asked my fiancé to do it.

The conversation went something like this: “Hey love, Geoff needs me to do today’s ION post so could you please trawl Google Images for a picture of any hot and scantily clad chick to put as the header image?”
There was momentary stunned silence, but then she asked, “Is Geoff the guy who wrote about tea-bagging his wife?”
“Yeah, that’s him,” I said.
“Damn, that was hilarious. I’ll email you what I find!”

Five minutes later I get an email with the above header image and this message: “I choose this girl because I know you like a decent butt and she has probably one of the most fab bums I’ve seen on a girl.”

Man I can’t wait to marry this woman.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were too busy lamenting a dead pony on the back of a glue factory truck.
