Glad You Asked: Weekend Edition



Dear GYA, Since Clint Eastwood's speech at the Republican National Convention, chair sales have increased by 28% in American households. What does this mean? It means either more people are yelling at Obama within the privacy of their own homes, or people are just sick and tired of using their legs.--- Either way, anything happening this weekend that doesn't involve sitting on my ass? Adam Rosenwasher, chair data specialist, Ogden
