Last weekend, Dan Savage called for an assault weapons ban on the ballot. The internet responded. Also, rumors started spreading about the Pope resigning because of gay orgies involving priests. Also, the Oscars happened.

Monday involved a lot of horse meat, fallout from the Oscars, and an algorithmic Hamlet. Plus: The Seattle Times paywall kicked up a stink and Michelle Malkin really should've thought before she made that video.

Tuesday kicked off with the three G's: guns, gay marriage, and good architecture. Some frat boys surprised the world by behaving like real, decent human beings, and the TSA surprised absolutely nobody by behaving like monsters. 235 Slog voters incorrectly guessed sequestration would be over by now. Also: Still more Oscar fallout!

Chief Diaz's bare upper lip dawned over Wednesday like a big red sun, inspiring Cienna to write poetry. Rodney Tom was accused of assholism and Mike McGinn moved us one step closer to Minority Report before getting into a tussle with Pete Holmes. In brighter news, the grand jury refusers were released!

Goldy said on Thursday that Seattle might get pucked in the near future. We learned how dumb Rob McKenna really is and saw how terrible Tim Eyman's record has been. A juice company accused Anna Minard of being a food and alcohol addict, inspiring some great comments like treacle's, to the left.

This morning, Goldy talked about the aftermath of the state Supreme Court's decision to kill the two-thirds supermajority. The whole world fell in love with Jinkx Monsoon. Girls Gone Wild went bankrupt. President Obama slapped down Republicans and talked about why gay marriage should be legal everywhere. Also, Charles Mudede saw three dead animals. I bet the Oscars had something to do with the deaths of those poor creatures. Now let us go and enjoy this beautiful Sequester Weekend in peace.

Housekeeping, think of it as a promotion.
