"Both would-be robbers booked a hasty retreat in the face of the scimitar-wielding clerk."

Pittsburgh what are you doing
A would-be thief got more than he bargained for when he tried to hold up a corner store with a sword Friday – only to find the clerk had a sword of his own.

+Eric Nielsen - I guess Colin had it right in the first place. Pittsburgh, what are you doing?!

REVERSE RICKROLL

In which people attending a Rick Astley performance got AC/DC's "Highway To Hell".

p.s. Rick Astley has a new album, and it's not really my style of music but it turns out he's got a great voice.

YES PLEASE
