Good Morning from OYIT (Afternoon Edition) [Mon Jan 26]

By Jake

I woke up this morning a little before noon and to my dismay there was no Good Morning from OYIT article posted. Now, I'm a bit superstitious and now feel like there is no way anybody can have a good morning. Well, if we can't have a good morning we can at least have a good afternoon.

Weather is morning business. In the afternoon what we care about is lunch. The Shanghai Chinese restaurant in Durham, NC offers many great lunch specials for the low price of $6.25. For a Vegetable or Shanghai roll add $0.75 to your order. That's under $10 for authentic Chinese cuisine and a Shanghai or vegetable roll. That price cannot be beat.

I'd like everybody at work to meditate on a picture of a waterfall today in order to maintain a cool head. If your boss is pushing you around or calling you a "boner," or whatever bosses say to make their employees work harder, just stay calm. Remember that this person is paying your bills, and when you go to find another job you'll need the reference. Here's a picture of a waterfall:

Since most of you are at work, I will refrain from posting a music video. I would have just posted an Insane Clown Posse video anyway, so we all win by not having it posted.

If you eat at the Shanghai Chinese restaurant please share your fortune from the cookie in the comments section.

Have a great day and evening.


  1. I was actually reading this post for the weather chart. thanks for nothing. now i'm going to have to go to or!


  2. But...but...there was a picture of a waterfall!

  3. I apologize. This is my fault for not being alert enough to have a good morning column ready for this morning. I will fix that for tomorrow, with weather.

  4. 'Love is for the lucky and the brave.' - That sounds like a MISfortune!@@(#*#*@!

    This was funny! I even got an extra laugh thinking of the ICP video that you didn't post.
