Every morning around here, a producer puts together a list of news stories for Rachel and the staff. Usually it’s Tricia, but today Vanessa did the honors. She included this Peter Sagal picture of cellist Yo-Yo Ma on the bathroom floor with a wombat.
Rachel hit reply all:
did everybody who read to the end of the note today do a google image search for “wombat”? do a google image search for wombat. go on. you deserve it.
We deserved it. We googled images of “wombat.”
The rest of an instant email chain is after the jump.
First reply (from me, with picture):
Call me undermothered.
Next up, Rachel, also with picture:
Call me itchy.
And finally, Yarvitz:
Call me fascinated.
For the record, Mike says that he sincerely is fascinated by the wombat. How could they be so cute, so indestructible and such killers?
