Cherry Blossoms Save Washington, America
Look, these pretty things are a-bloomin' all over the Tidal Basin shores and whatnot. This was obviously taken yesterday, when the foul rain wasn't pissing down upon the Nation's Capital. But it should be kind of sunny tomorrow, so make sure you take a long three-hour lunch, enjoy the famous cherry blossoms given to us by Japan on December 7, 1941, and then come back to the office only to find you've been picked for the new round of layoffs because what the fuck, a three-hour lunch, in this economy?
