When additional detail could only spoil the moment:

Police swooped on a picturesque Cotswolds village after residents complained about fundraisers holding a rubber duck race.

Really? You thought I wanted to join the Skin Care community? Sorry, I'm too busy trying to make these damned dactyls behave.

Hostess reports that Ding Dongs may have come in contact with peanuts. Can a sentence get any better than that?

The day-old donut award for this morning's worst sentence goes to Francis Thompson for

Ah! is Thy love indeed
A weed, albeit an amarinthine weed,
Suffering no flowers except its own to mount?

No, Google+, I do not want to join "Textile Exposure." Nor "Wordsmithery." ("Sorry," said Dickens to Thackery, "I have to return to my wordsmithery.")

Today's reminder from Auden:

Thou shalt not do as the dean pleases,
Thou shalt not write thy doctor’s thesis
On education,
Thou shalt not worship projects nor
Shalt thou or thine bow down before
Administration.

My Google newsfeed continues to offer me stories of the Kardashians' dress code. Google+ keeps recommending pages like "Foodstuff" and "Lovelife of Snails." They couldn't get these things more wrong if Al Gorithm chose them at random, which I'm beginning to believe he must.
