Greetings Webtaculators! I hope everyone enjoyed on this great Thanksgiving holiday before Christmas so rudely barged in. Or, in the alternative, I hope you you didn’t enjoy Thanksgiving because you’re part of the vast liberal plot to get rid of it. The only holiday I am truly looking forward to is the best holiday of all – Birthday Month. According to my father-in-law, you get to claim the whole month of your birthday (regardless of the very clear meaning in birthDAY) as yours. So, I am hitching my train to this wagon full on, and I highly suggest you all do as well. On to the news.
STORY OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Republicans Cannot Stop Lying
Why: Because Devin Nunes, one of the main Republican Representatives who defended Trump during the hearings last week, is now also implicated in attempting to get dirt on Biden. Plugging your ears while screaming THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN is not the same thing as winning.
ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Why Go Outside?
Why: Because online sales crushed in store sales for this year’s Black Friday.
LAW THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Devin Nunes Has A Cow
Why: Because not only can Devin Nunes not explain his trip to Europe, but he also does not understand the Constitution.
TECH THING OF THE WEEK (long look)
What: Cyber Monday Counts As Tech
Why: Because there are more deals waiting for everyone who had much better things to do with their lives than shop.
SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Stealing Signs
Why: Because one of the most archaic parts of baseball, coaches using hand signals to tell batters / base runners to do things, caused the biggest scandal in baseball right now. Hey, anythings better than the blatant racism / homophobia that is part of hockey.
MOVIE THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: Little Women Goes Big
Why: Because yet another version of this classically adopted film is probably the best.
MUSIC THING OF THE WEEK (6 min. read)
What: Pitchfork… Liked Coldplay
Why: Because Coldplay’s newest album is a lot – but at least the bands’ hearts are in the right place by not touring due to concerts’ impact on the environment.
PHOTOGRAPHY THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. look)
What: Thanksgiving Day Parade
Why: Because giant balloons are fun.
LITERATURE THING OF THE WEEK (10 min. read)
What: National Book Award Finalists

What: Disco Is Back
Why: Because Disco Elysium is one of the most original and best written RPGs to come out in a very long time.
INTERNET THINGS OF THE WEEK (∞)
What: Peak Colbert; Baby Yoda Forever (Remember When The Internet Was Good?); There’s Nothing As Touching As A Corporation Stealing Your Childhood To Make You Cry
Why: Because Internet.
THING YOU SHOULD GET BRIAN OF THE WEEK
What: Something Cyber!
Why: Because Brian deserves it.
