Nitwit News – January 23

When there is booze involved, there are many situations you may find yourself in that you normally would not get into. Say, there’s a certain cuisine you only crave when drinking. But what happens if a snowstorm foils your tipsy plans? Turn to the Internet, like one Baltimore Craigslister did this week in his quest for Taco Bell. The guy wrote on Craigslist (edited for radio): “Guys, it’s snowing like [crazy] outside, I’ve had a few drinks too many, and my [cruddy] little hybrid can’t possibly make it to the neighborhood Taco Bell in this weather. I need someone with a 4 wheel drive vehicle to come pick [me] up, take me to the Taco Bell drive-thru, and drive me back home.” He goes on to offer a fun time playing video games if the person isn’t a total creeper, and offers payment in tacos, chalupas or “whatever.” He also wrote in his Craigslist ad: “Seriously, my desire for tacos right now is totally unmanageable, so I’d probably even buy you a 7 layer burrito if you asked nicely.” The Craigslist poster eventually sobered up and went on the Taco Bell mission himself.

In Florida, St. Augustine Record publisher Delinda Fogel’s ambitious goal for 2014 “is to eliminate the typos and grammar mistakes in the newspaper.” She said in her paper: “I hear from some readers that part of the entertainment value of The Record is counting the number of errors. I’m not proud that we have a problem. It is very humbling, but it seems to take an army to help turn this tide. This isn’t a simple work-at-home project; participants are asked to meet at the Record building to proofread pages from 8 PM to 11 PM. We’ll keep a tally of the proofreading volunteers and award a nice dinner for two to the person who helps us catch the most typos and errors.” One recent large headline in the newspaper read: “Social Security think he’s an imate”.
