It's a good day for some comic relief!

THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 2017

We turn to our greatest newspaper:
It's a good day for some comic relief. For that reason, we turn to the world-class foppistry of the New York Times.

On the reimagined page A3, the foofaw comes early and often. That said, the Here to Help section may be Timesiest of all:
How to Help
HOW TO TACKLE CLEANING THE BATHROOM
We sh*t you not. That's what it actually says.

Gonzo! The Times called in Jolie Kerr, a "cleaning expert," to give us a handful of tips. These are her five subheads, and no, we aren't making them up:
Scrub the shower and/or tub, sink and toilet
Clean tile and grout
How to remove soap scum
Pick up loose hairs
Keep bathroom floors clear
No, really. "Keep bathroom floors clean!" That's what the Times expert says!

(Beneath each heading, Kerr explains how to accomplish the task.)

Little on today's reimagined page is much better than this. In the feature called The Conversation, we learned about the mental horizons of (some of) the newspaper's readers:
The Conversation
FOUR OF THE MOST READ, SHARED AND DISCUSSED POSTS FROM ACROSS NYTIMES.COM

1. We Taste-Tested 10 Hot Dogs. Here Are the Best.
A hot-dog show-down by The Times's Julia Moskin, Sam Silton and Melissa Clark—all native New Yorkers—landed atop Wednesday's most-read list...
At least they didn't fly the journalists in so they could taste-test the dogs. Meanwhile, those hot dogs made Times readers lose control! We'll permit ourselves an invidious guess—these are the people who constantly say how dumb The Others are.

Each day, the Spotlight feature presents "additional reportage and repartee from our journalists." Today, the repartee is built around comments by Kirsten Dunst and Sofia Coppola concerning what it's like to work together. In our view, it's not their fault that the New York Times asked.

Page A3 is always there to offer comic relief. Meanwhile, atop page one of ThursdayStyles, we encountered this blurb:
2 UNBUTTONED
Judging 50 authors by their clothes. BY VANESSA FRIEDMAN
Judging authors by their clothes? We're keeping that one for the weekend!

The culture of the New York Times is extremely foppish. Branding says this can't be true. Problematically, though, it is.

Important point: You have to buy the hard-copy Times to receive this comic relief.

    1. (HOW I GOT MY HUSBAND BACK HOME)
      Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 11yrs now. We were happily married with kids, 5 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids,He packout of the house to live with the woman and i strongly believe that she did some spell on him because even when i beg my husband to come back to me he refuse and went to live with her. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr KALA is capable of solving marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr KALA Powerful Love Spell that really works. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email DR KALA at: KALALOVESPELL@GMAIL.COM or call and whatsapp him on +2347051705853

  6. Are you in bad need of love spell to bring back your ex lover or reunite your marriage? I had a problem with my husband a year and six months ago, which lead us apart. When he broke up with me, I was confuse and did not know what to do to get him back until i came across Dr. Omoluyi on the internet on how He has helped so many people solve their various problems. I Emailed Him and I told Him my problem and i did what he asked me to do for him to help me, to briefly make the long story short, Before I knew it, in less than 24 HOURS, my Husband gave me a call and he came back to me and told me he was sorry about what was going on between the both of us. Finally, I am deeply showing my gratitude to Dr. Omoluyi for keeping his words and promises in bringing back my husband. If you need his help, you can email him at: [ Doctoromoluyispelltemple@gmail.com ], Call or text him on +1 (518) 460-6400 or Reach him through his Website: [ http://www.doctorokpamenspells.com ].

  9. After being in relationship with markiss for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: drosemudiamenspellhome@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. I CAN NEVER STOP TALKING ABOUT HIM, HIS EMAIL ADDRESS IS: drosemudiamenspellhome@gmail.com CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEM, HE ALSO HELP PEOPLE TO GET PREGNANT.
