So, by now, most of you already know that Bob Parsons, the CEO of GoDaddy, killed an elephant in Africa. I think that’s horrible. His excuse was that elephants were destroying crops, but to me, this is like when people living in mansions in the mountains say a bear was digging through their garbage. If you live in a place where there is wildlife, and you just keep encroaching on that wildlife, then yes, you will probably have a run-in with an animal. Just like with bears, if you leave your garbage bin open, leave food out or even leave bird food everywhere, you’re basically asking the bear to come over. In this case, people are on elephant land, growing crops that elephants love and then being angry that elephants are eating those crops. You can call me a hippie if you want, but I think that’s so wrong.

I just saw a tweet from @lynzway about a South Park art show in NYC. As I was clicking through the pics, I realized that Mrs. Way herself had a piece in the show, seen below.

My friend Allen Klosowski knows how much I love Michael Jackson, so he tweeted me a link to this video this morning and now I feel the need to share it through every possible social media channel. These two dudes, Stjepan Hauser and Luka Sulic, play Smooth Criminal in a epic cello battle. Definitely check this out!
