5 Things

Thinking about parking validation, TV doorbells and goat-men

    • For whom the bell tolls

      Hey, Hollywood: Can we get rid of the sound of doorbells in TV and movies? My dogs don’t know the difference, and I’m going deaf from all the barking. —Ken Miller, associate editor

    • Getting our goats

      A photographer out for a hike in Utah snapped a shot of a man dressed in a goat costume trailing an actual herd. This is almost as creepy as Lindsay Lohan wearing clothes with high necklines. —Erin Ryan, staff writer

    • Score!

      Sign that it’s going to be a good week: My parking validation was only good for three hours, but the woman at the Golden Nugget parking garage cage gave me the extra 20 minutes for free. —Rick Lax, staff writer

    • La Furia

      As if Spain weren’t dealing with enough—financial crisis, 24 percent unemployment—the country’s Olympic uniforms look strikingly like McDonald’s castoffs. Burger, fries and a gold medal, anyone? —Sarah Feldberg, editor

    • Reading Comprehension?

      The Mike Huckabee/Chick Fil-A vs. the Muppets debacle should have us all wondering why anyone who has actually read the Bible would praise “the biblical definition of the family unit.” —Kristen Peterson, staff writer
