So we had a story about Comcast remixes on the site today. Then our reporters wrote some inspired tweets. Then we had to explain to our editor who R. Kelly is. 

In other news, follow our reporters — they’re hilarious. 

“I used to play Flight of the Bumblebees in my college newsroom to make editors edit faster the night before we published.”

– Overheard in the newsroom

  • Reporter 1: "Is it possible to eat a sesame seed bagel without destroying your life?"
  • Reporter 2: "It's adding sesame seeds to your life. You need a different outlook here."

“I’m going to step away for a few and go outside and see what that’s like, get some coffee.”

– Our editors work really, really hard.
