First of all, it’s supposed to be red yarn. I’m not entirely sure why, but it’s always red yarn.

The story I’m working on right now is sort of complicated, and every time I pass the hobby aisle at the local store, I have to fight the urge to buy red yarn, because I really, really want to post character names on a bulletin board and string red yarn between them to keep track of their relationships, but I’m not completely sure how to do it.

Is there a Red Yarn for Dummies book?

But I digress.

What exactly is going on here? I can understand Law Enforcement stringing red yarn between this guy’s various cohorts for their own benefit, but why would they do this in his jail cell?

BBBB: This logic applies to extension cords and a lot of other things, too. Sneakers and various items of clothing come to mind. I just found it nicely presented and generally hilarious:

Which is correct…

1. The Declaration of Independence begins “We the people…”

2. The Declaration of Independence begins “Us the people…”

Neither, of course: it’s the Constitution that begins “We the people…” (since “Us the people…” shouldn’t even sound right to people who confuse “there,” “their” and “they’re”) and come on everybody, stop posting this on Facebook every July 4!

Is this a real thing, or is Mallett extrapolating based on a single water tower near one minor league ballpark somewhere in Michigan? I personally have never noticed any water tower/ballpark correlation.
