Monday News Feed

-JK Rowling has outed Albus Duumbledore. In an answer to a question from a reader at a lecture at Carnegie Hall, Rowling sort of surprised the audience by explaining the relationship between Dumbledore and Grindenwald (if you don’t know who that is, I’m sure there must be some sort of Harry Potter fan site on the internet. Keep looking). The usefulness of letting people know a character was gay after the series has ended is somewhat debatable. There was no information on what Hermione and Ron were up to for so long in the Chamber of Secrets in the last book, however.

-The Deputy Mayor of New Dehli was murdered by a pack of wild monkeys in his home. My guess is that he pissed of the Wicked Witch of the West. Authorities will not comment on my theory.

-The Sioux Gateway Airport in Sioux City has finally given up on trying to get its three letter airport code changed from SUX to pretty much anything else (however, the FAA did offer them another three letter code: GAY. The offer was turned down). It seems like they finally got a sense of humor about the thing, and are marketing their new website, flysux.com and t-shirts

I wonder if Albus was pitching or catching?

I wonder if this is the first news story ever about Sioux City.

SUX!!! That ROX!

Poor airport.

Also how the hell do they get GAY from Sioux City? Or don't I want to know?

I would guess that either A) IoP is making up GAY to be funny or B) it's a condensation of "Gateway"

I'm not making that up. You can check my source for confirmation of that fact.

Sometimes reality can be hilarious.
