Kakistocracy: Government by the worst persons; a form of government in which the worst persons are in power.
Bones is one of the better shows on TV right now, but this short little clip from S10E08 made me quite literally laugh out loud. Just a wonderful bit of silliness.
640×1136, 2,048×1,536, and 5120×2880. Yes, I make this joke somewhat annually. But…it amuses me, so I’ll probably continue to do so.

I got a mystery package in the mail today. Opening it, I found a fun little surprise to go with the Awkward Family Photos game I mentioned the other day: The 2012 Awkward Family Calendar! February 28th and August 8th look like especially good days to me. ;)
Long-time readers will know that my family has been featured on the Awkward Family Photos website not just once, but twice, and both photos were also featured in the Awkward Family Photos book. Well, you can’t keep a good thing down — we’re now also featured in the Awkward Family Photos game!
