From The Archives: To promote the premiere of the TV show Weeds, ad agency Le Bureau sent out a bunch of hemp-filled (THC-less) “Weed Bouquets” to press and media agencies.
Now that’s what I call blunt marketing! (I’ll show myself out.)

Being a lifelong New Yorker (I grew up in Northern California and live in Los Angeles), when Entertainment Weekly called and begged me to be on the cover of their magazine (the show I’m on, Parks and Rec,  was going to be on the cover, and thus I would ride its coattails) and  that the shoot would be anywhere but Manhattan, I, of course, said no  (yes).
To even consider leaving my fair city (I’ve never lived here) makes  me literally vomit (not literally, actually not at all). So the decision  was easy: I’d triumphantly stay in New York (I’m working on a movie  here, and due to a giant storm, all flights were cancelled) while my  fellow castmates mug it up in EW (I’m a subscriber). Victory  (devastation)!!!
Mine (yours),
Nick Offerman (Adam Scott)

Probably the funniest* internet thing.
*(Sorry, that was a little hyperbolic.  It’s not the funniest internet thing. it’s moderately funny at best. I smiled, but didn’t laugh aloud. Not like I do at cats or dogs with wigs.)

I know Tumblr doesn’t cater to longer posts, but this is too good not to share:

Dear Sugar,

I read your column religiously. I’m 22. From what I can tell by your writing, you’re in your early 40s. My question is short and sweet: what would you tell your 20-something self if you could talk to…

Rosie, I will buy it for you if you get it for me  ;)
rosiesiman:

i especially love foxes.
and the quote from le petit prince below.
also, i wear size 6 in rings if you would like to get this for me ;)
myturqouiseroom:

What this ring (needsupply.com) means to me, a reminder of the fox wisdom:
“What does that mean—-tame?”
“It’s an act too often neglected,” said the fox. “It means to establish ties.”
“To establish ties?”
“Just that,” said the fox. “to me, you’re still nothing more than a little boy who’s just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you I’m nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you’ll be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world …”
 But he came back to his idea. “My life’s very monotonous,” he said. “I hunt chickens; men hunt me. All chickens are just alike, and all the men are just alike. And in consequence, I am a little bored. But if you tame me, it’ll be as if the sun came to shine on my life. I shall know the sound of a step that’ll be different from all the others. Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground. Yours will call me, like music out of my burrow. And then look: you see the grain-fields down yonder? I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me. The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat…”
So the little prince tamed the fox. And when the hour of his departure drew near—-
“Ah,” said the fox, “I shall cry.”
“It’s your own fault,” said the little prince. “I never wished you any sort of harm; but you wanted me to tame you…”
“Yes that is so”, said the fox.
“But now you’re going to cry!” said the little prince.
“Yes that is so” said the fox.
“Then it has done you no good at all!”
“It has done me good,” said the fox, “because of the color of the wheat fields.” And then he added: “go and look again at the roses. You’ll understand now that yours is unique in all the world. Then come back to say goodbye to me, and I will make you a present of a secret.”
“Goodbye,” said the fox. “And now here’s my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
“What is essential is invisible to the eye,” the little prince repeated, so that he would be sure to remember.
“It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”
“It is the time I have wasted for my rose—” said the little prince so he would be sure to remember.
“Men have forgotten this truth,” said the fox. “But you must not forget it. You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed. You are responsible for your rose…”
“I am responsible for my rose,” the little prince repeated, so that he would be sure to remember.
