Horrible weather inspired jams!
Horrible weather inspired jams!
I offer a thousand apologies for not posting Columbus' best missed connections last week. I was dealing with the great cheesecake crisis of 2013 at my family's Thanksgiving fete, and couldn't muster the strength. Trust me, I would have rather been scouring the interwebs...
But don't worry, because there are some real gems in this week's edition... perhaps some of the best thus far. Since local weather reports say Snowmaggedon is upon us, let these lovelorn Columbusites' pleas for companionship warm your heart and/or make you feel better about not having a date for your office Christmas party.
At least they have a common interest.
Screws and poles and puns, oh my!
This dude just described every guy at Bodega on Monday. How the hell is this girl supposed to know which one he was?
I wonder how this guy's wife knows about his "trashy" secret...
And then there is this gem... We're talking Craigslist hall of fame potential:
If this is real, that enema tech wasn't very professional.
Bottoms up Westerville, the good guys won!
Today (Dec. 5) Marks the 80th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition, and as Westerville's first winery, it seems only fitting Good Vibes Winery ( 2 S. State St., Westerville) should host the fete.

Since Westerville was once known as the "center of the temperance movement" and has only allowed the legal sale of alcohol since 2006, it seems only appropriate that we make up for lost time by drinking like our freedom depends on it.
Good Vibes is offering wine and appetizer specials for the occasion, and encourages patrons to check out the Anti-Saloon League Museum, which is an easy two block walk (stumble?) from the winery. The party officially starts at 5:32 p.m. (the exact time of the repeal).
So let the kind people at Good Vibes pour you a glass while you sit and discuss why Westerville hates boozes so hard.
While we're talking veggie burgers, we figured it was a good time to check in with one of our favorites.

Well Hell's bells kids, so much for Midwest manners!
Researchers at the Marchex Institute named Ohio the most foul-mouthed state in the U.S. based on the amount of swear words used in consumer phone calls, Twitter and Facebook posts, The Atlantic reported. Congratu-Effing-Lations everybody! We did it! Our grandmothers are going to be so proud... Well, maybe not.

Ohio was followed by Maryland, New Jersey, Louisiana and Illinois. Washington was found to be the state least likely to get their mouths washed out with soap, followed by Massachusetts.
I guess Washington makes sense, but I'm totally baffled by Massachusetts. I mean, have you seen "The Departed", it has Nicholson in it for f--- Oh, there I go again.
Uncle Jack says "Watch your f*!king mouth, Ohio."
Apparently we are also pretty unlikely to say "please" and "thank you." I blame this on Chillicothe. I blame all of Ohio's downfalls on Chillicothe.

If you ask me, if you are calling me first thing in the morning, and keeping me on the phone for more than 10 minutes, you bet your sweet ass I'm going to swear at you.
