Sponsor Eddie Izzard!

Eddie Izzard has run 43 marathons in 51 days around the UK to raise money for charity. But this is not just any marathon set he is running. Oh no no no no no.

This is not only supremely badass of him to do, but he has already raised more than £43k in donations that were matched by an anonymous donor for a current total of £86k for charity. Every donation helps!

May I see your citrus permit, please?

I’ve always had my suspicions Texas sees the Rio Grande Valley as the ugly red headed step child of the family. It’s the little things. Like a federal checkpoint an hour away from the valley outside Falfurrias Texas. And mandatory USDA permits for taking fruit out of the valley area.

No, really!

These signs are everywhere in the valley, and this one was posted at a local Staples.

There is no charge for the permit.
