Spring is almost here, and a large portion of us sprang forward on Sunday, mostly against our will. I heard that Monday was National Napping Day, but I slept through it. Pi Day is coming up on Thursday, so that's a good day to eat 3.14 pies. Then St. Patrick's Day is on Sunday, so you can drink a lot of crappy green beer and be exhausted for the second Monday in a row. Protip: Bring the remaining .86 of a pie to work with you to help with that hangover. 

By the way, if you haven't yet, be sure to check out the changes to Fark's mobile site. If you run into any problems with it or have suggestions, please help us out and contact Farkback and select "Technical errors/difficulties/questions/bugs" in the dropdown instead of just talking about it in a thread or submitting a thread about it. 

XOXO,

Pie Day CSB

Worked at Renaissance Festivals around the country for 5 years. It's tradition to receive a cream pie in the face on your birthday. So you spend the entire day paranoid. I was pied at 6 a.m., right before coffee. Was that the end of it?
NOPE
Was lured into the campground after work, under the premise of a joint. Received 11 pies simultaneously.
They were hiding behind a van.
Revenge is sweet though. Distributed some lard pies later that night.
