Hey, did you know that you can hear our boring voice and dry humor in audio format? That’s right – we contribute a weekly segment to the Two Guys and Your Money Podcast.
I’ve heard I sound like Ben Stein. No word yet on whether I’ll be in a sequel of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, but my best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night that I was on the short list.
Okay that’s enough of that. More Weekender!

- The Financial Samurai has a great post at Untemplater on the English Rugby players banned from an all-you-can-eat joint. I asked a friend about getting kicked out of all-you-can-eat restaurants in America – “not during a meal”, he said. “That’s breach of contract.” Of course, most restaurants can ban you at any time from returning. Keep that in mind when you try to emulate Homer!
