Mitt Romney is going to make "plural marriage" legal once he's president.

*looks around*

Whoops, sorry. I thought this was the best political rumors you've heard this year. Never mind...

You don't even need rumours.

Santa is going with the "world needs ditch diggers" economic model.

Meanwhile Mitt is going with the "mardi gras parade float" economic theory, where some sit on a sparkly barge high up while the crowd clamours for worthless trinkets.

Ditch diggers? Are you insensitive or what? They prefer to be called "ditch digroes".

Seems Sir Richard Branson has heard about the whole ticketing fiasco and is disgusted. He seems to think he could do better than Bmorg with both eyes closed and both hands tied behind his back (just like half the people on these boards). Upshot is that he wants to buy Burning Man LLC and make everyone a Virgin Burner.

When the sparklepony population hits a critical low, I hear that seasoned burners have been observed to spontaneously develop a taste for loose glitter, feathers, and whining, in order to preserve the natural balance.

I heard it on the Burning Blog . . . in the comments area.

Maid Marian, although there were a number of curious misspellings and syntax errors, and the IP address suggested she was posting from a Muscovite internet café.
