It's Thursday.  You know what that means?  That's right---the only day of the week where something reliably interesting is on Slate.  Get your weekly dose of source material from Prudie here.

Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidant:

1) You know what this tells your husband? "My wife is a doormat." Expect more cheating.

2) What is she cooking? Chicken tartare? She needs food safety class.

3) Forgive me for being crude but was he drunk? Lucky he only killed himself.

4) Keep cans of SPAM around. Give one to each offender, say "now we're even, Madoff."

Source material at Slate, just like always.

New name, same great taste:

1) Cheating? Not unless you fuck 'em. Enjoy the free show!

2) Said Franklin: "Three can keep a secret if two are dead." Keep it zipped, chatterbox.

3) This is safe territory for "it goes or I go" ultimatum. What were you thinking?!

4) Until you said you were married, I would've said "career opportunities..." Now? Ignore creep.

News going up on later today about the "radio" part. Stay tuned.

Year Two of the Great Brevity Experiment Begins...Now.

1) Gives new meaning to "C'mon, boy, get a hold of yourself!"

2) Channel your inner Jeff Ross. Roast the old coot over the coals.

3) Unless first teacher is teaching "I Wanna Learn a Love Song", just switch already!

4) You might have valid point. Free for dinner? No, wait...I don't date nitpicky shrews.

Oh, if only I could write LW2's eulogy speech...
