Professional Cuddling


This is a thing where you pay people like a dollar an hour to platonically snuggle you. I always kind of thought this was a joke but it turns out St. Louis has at least two professional cuddling services with offices and everything, and it’s not like St. Louis is known for having stuff. When Ikea finally built a store here we painted it in our city mural at the airport. Anyway, I assumed I wouldn’t be interested in paying people to touch me when I don’t like people to touch me for free, but it seems like I don’t know myself as well as I thought, because I kind of want to do this. 4.0/5

The Peter Principle

Steve Carell Sept. 1

This is a theory that attempts to explain why management is so horrible by postulating that every time a worker is competent at their current job they get promoted, until finally they reach a level at which they can never attain competence, and then they stay at that level forever. I’m going to have to call BS on this one, though, because I have been in the workforce for almost 20 years and I have never seen a competent person get any sort of promotion. 1.3/5
