Friday Filler

A cold zapped my desire to write this week, so enjoy these words instead:

“The Sweet Story Of How Ben & Jerry’s Built Its Ice Cream Empire” at Huffington Post
It all started with a guy named Ben and a guy named Jerry. The year was 1978, and young besties Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield decided they wanted to start a company. They briefly considered bagels, but the equipment was too expensive, so they opted for opening an ice cream shop in a converted gas station in Vermont. Their company name was simple: Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Ice Cream.

“Searching for Krampus” at BoingBoing
AL Cacophony reports on the christmas devils’ growing popularity in America, and the old-worlders drafted in to help keep it real.

“The 60 Silliest Pie Charts on the Internet” at TwentyTwoWords
Some of life’s most important issues broken down into simple pictorial graphs. . . My favorite is Trivial Pursuit.

Okay, I lied.
I did have a little time to write once I was feeling better, but instead I watched one of my favorite movies, Only Lovers Left Alive.
