Our town now has an official jester, and I did a double-take when I saw that Dave Pell mentioned it in NextDraft:
+ A Welsh town has appointed its first jester in 700 years. (If he’s successful, he gets promoted to Tweeting.)
Full disclosure: I had no idea it happened until I saw the announcement in our local paper the other day. That said, I guess I’m pretty much required now to go check out his show!
