The World’s Latest Ping

So I think that, unless Ryan has done later, today’s Ping is possibly the latest posted in our history – nearly 3pm Eastern time.

I have a perfect excuse, of course: this morning I needed to milk the cows, make the cheese, churn the butter, and lube up the icebox (it was running dry.)

Curious, though: what time of day do you freak out and think to yourself, “Where’s the freakin’ Ping?!”

At 2pm I was a little worried but not ready to clear my throat loudly.

I thought maybe someone was having a baby.

To be quite honest, it's a Sunday: I don't check the Ping until night. Every other day of the week, by 12noon, I start to wonder what's up. Sunday, however, is the Ping's time to tuck me in with a whimsical thought just before bed.

I look at 7 O'Ping of course. Now that may be 7 O'Ping in the A.M. or 7 O'Ping in the P.M. depending on my schedule and how much screwing off time I'm allowed on the computer before I go in to work and start burning other people's food.


What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
