Well, there you have it. Our first week as the new and improved HoboTrashcan is in the bag. We all finally solved the “new hobo rolls into town” mystery and I wasn’t replaced by a younger, sexier hobo, so I think we can all agree that this week has been a success.
Also, I don’t know about the rest of you, but I think this new format is pretty sweet (and not just because I am prominently featured on the banner on the top of this page). Hopefully the new and improved HoboTrashcan will prove to be incredibly popular and will become a huge financial success so that Joel can start actually paying me in cash instead of in Skittles.
Anyway, I hope you all have a great Labor Day weekend. We’ll be back on Monday with even more hobo goodness.
Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
Murphy’s Law – A disaster that must be stopped
Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are the men responsible for Date Movie, Meet the Spartans and Epic Movie. Their latest film, Disaster Movie hits theaters this week, so Joel Murphy attempts to figure out why these guys are still allowed to make films.
Note to Self – Why your team won’t win the Super Bowl 2008
Sport’s columnist Brian Murphy takes a look at all 32 NFL teams and gives you the reason why each one won’t win the Super Bowl this season. Even the best sports analyst have trouble predicting the outcome of the NFL season this early, but we guarantee Murphy will get 31 of these right.
Outside of the In-Crowd – Rules for Facebook
In honor of HoboTrashcan’s new Facebook page, Courtney Enlow shared 11 rules that all Facebook users should live by. Courtney lays into everything from misspelled movies titles to slutty photos. So if you want to avoid looking like a total douche on Facebook, we suggest you memorize this list.
Overrated – HoboTrashcan
To help celebrate both the new site and HoboTrashcan’s three-year anniversary, Ned Bitters explained why HoboTrashcan itself is overrated. Then, our editor Joel Murphy joined in on the fun to explain why Bitters is overrated. So if you ever wanted to know why we all suck, here’s your chance.
Guest Blog – “My Baby” by Lil Romeo is one of my favorite songs ever, which is not embarrassing
SARAHSPY shares her love for the Lil Romeo song “My Baby,” which she recently rediscovered after spending years unable to track it down because she thought the song was by Lil Bow Wow. Sarah shares her love for Lil Romeo (who she admits hasn’t aged so well) in this special guest blog post.
From the Vault – Tara’s photos
Last year, to help us celebrate our second anniversary, HoboTrashcan’s site girl Tara returned to the site for a special hobo-themed photo set. If you missed it then, we are bringing it out of the vault this week. We think you will agree that it’s a much better anniversary gift than that toaster you got for your wife last year.
Also make sure to check out an all new Hobo Radio, Chicken and Milk, Recyclables and our daily Hobo Headlines.
