Oh That's Interesting... And Funny!

I'm a big fan of the sort of history you never learned in history class--secrets and coverups that the books keep out to maintain our patriotism for America as kids--so when I bump into some good readin', I feel the need to pass it along, especially when it's hilarious.

My good history readin' sent me to lots of other good readin', so I'm passing that along, too. Be warned that these are very funny yet also crass and vulgar at times. There are definitely some Not Safe For Work words used in these articles, but for the most part they're just extremely interesting and rather funny.

Did you guys know all of this stuff? Even I haven't read through all these yet, but I thought I'd put together a collection for all the time-wasting I'll be doing after this final week of school wraps up!

Enjoy! :)
