Seven thousand bucks worth of gluttony

Remember when Paul pledged to shove an entire Fudgie the Whale ice cream cake into his piecakehole for charity? Well the end total raised for the Arlington Food Bank was $7270.12. They raised $3655.06 in donations and the AFB’s matching arrangement from the Feinstein Foundation doubled that.

And I know, that math isn’t right – twice $6555 is 7310, not 7270, so I think someone forgot to carry a 1. Artists, pfft. But who cares? That’s mad charity bank right there any way you slice it. Nice work, guys.

You could thank them – and treat yourself – by going to see them at the Wolf Trap Barns later this month.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. The bad math is more likely due to bad handwriting. Someone confused the first “5” for a “3”, it seems. ( 3635.06 x 2 = 7270)

  2. “twice $6555 is 7310, not 7270” Weren’t you just complaining about a math error?

  3. Complaining is a strong word – I’da gone with observing. And as I said, it’s a great result regardless.

    Besides, this was a typo, which is different :)
