Not much has happened since we last spoke … except of course the end of the longest running presidential campaign in history, which concluded with a big win for Barack Obama. The 44th President of the United States is the first African American ever elected, making this election a watershed moment in this nation’s history.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve talked a lot about the election. Those of you who are sad to see it come to an end can relive the magic of Obama and McCain’s campaigns by looking back at this week’s Outside of the In-Crowd and Murphy’s Law and last week’s Hobo Radio Podcast and Note to Self.
Those of you who are sick of the election and are glad to see it finally end, we promise that next week we will be back to the normal lighthearted foolishness that we usually offer here on HoboTrashcan.
Another good way to forget all about the election is by picking up Gears of War 2. We’ve been playing it all day here at Hobo Headquarters. In fact, I’m off to play it now. My plan is to shoot Brian Murphy in the face so that I can use him as a meat shield.
Mmmmmm … meat shield.
Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
Murphy’s Law – Thing will never be the same
When the American public elected Barack Obama President of the United States, they sent a message that it was time for a change in Washington. When reflecting on this monumental change, Joel Murphy began thinking of the Tupac Shakur song “Changes.” He shares his thoughts on the song and the election in this week’s column.
Note to Self – Ryan’s got Falcons flying
This week, Brian Murphy spotlights Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, who came into a tough situation by playing for a team that finished 4-12 last year after the face of the franchise, quarterback Mike Vick, being arrested on dog fighting charges. Faced with a tough situation, Ryan has thrived.
Outside of the In-Crowd – Vote or die … unless you shouldn’t
This past Monday, Courtney Enlow encourage everyone to get out there and vote … well, not everyone, exactly. Enlow gave eight groups of people who she believed should not be allowed to vote, a list which included people who believe that Obama is a Muslim and those who are anti-Kool Aid.
Overrated – The following foods …
We suspect that Ned Bitters might have had a case of the munchies when he sat down to write his column this week, since Bitters takes the time to explain why extra cheese on pizza, fried chicken, Chinese food, veal, oysters, “All You Can Eat” french fries, cheese on top of a burger, popcorn, hot sauces and lobster are all overrated.
There will be no new Hobo Radio Podcast this week, but please check out our all-new From the Vault and Recyclables.
