El Guapo, the most Guapo man in all of DC, writes: Adios. Arjewtino pens a tribute that no doubt expresses a widely shared sentiment.

Much like a gaucho saddened by the falling of his enemy, I am wistful at the idea that my Guatemalan rival will no longer be blogging. No more Argentina-bashing; no more bragging about his glorious moustache; no more daily ruminations on his vida de pasion. El Guapo had a loyal (and rightfully so) following. He will be missed.

Sometime ago Roosh V., aka DC Bachelor, penned a hilarious and memorable post about his plan for a DC Puppy Rental Service as a way to meet women. Well, guess what? In surfing some NYC blogs this weekend, we came across Janeism, an upper Manhattan-based blogger, who has a report about a real dog rental service in NY that’s coming to DC. It’s called Flexpetz and you can rent a dog for a few hours to a number of days. Janeism writes: … now, in exchange for some cash, I can buy something close to that love and drop it off when I’m done. It’s puppy prostitution, in a sense. But like a lonely sailor in a new port, I might be tempted. Others commenting. Harlem Fur: the idea of leasing a pet strikes me as a bit strange.
