Every weekend, we tally the scores and link you to the posts and articles that we found interesting, hilarious, absurd, or just plain weird. In other words, we liked them, and since you like us, we imagine that you will like what we like. And what we like wins. Since you clearly have nothing better to do with your weekend, here is the official PITB Waste Your Weekend Box Score.
