Today in our morning meeting Joy was reprimanded for never having watched the hit TV show “How I Met Your Mother.” But everyone in the world was apparently watching the show’s finale last night. It was the show’s most-watched and highest-rated episode!
The popular series came to a close after 9 seasons, and most of you were *seriously* disappointed.

Yes, you too can have your cherished family photos “enhanced” with randomly inserted pics of actor David Hasselhoff by uploading them to the social media engine.
