I wanted to write a Light Reading news article (my first for about 10 years) to celebrate my first day being back at the helm of the new Light Reading, but when I had a sniff around for something to cover, I realized all the good stories had already been taken.

Dan Jones already covered the frankly hilarious LG phone giveaway/spear-chucking impalathon in Korea yesterday. Over on Internet Evolution, Mitch Wagner was all over the Hitler Lovers group on LinkedIn and his problems with the same network's pole dancers (best second-day lede evahhhhh, Mitch).

Which leaves me with some slim pickings. But I did finally find something newsworthy. To whit: the epic similarity between our own Dan Jones and the Internet's Grumpy Cat.

I know. Amazing, right?

It's good to be home.

— Stephen Saunders, founder, Light Reading

Congratulations on the new Light Reading. 

Sorry I didn't comment here earlier. I was studying for my pole dancing final exam.

Pensive, grumpy, whatever, I'm just glad I've kept up with my nose hair plucking regime.

Le Maistre still hasn't recovered from his reputation as a suspect in the death of his family's hamster.

Dan's looking more pensive here than grumpy. But point taken. And thanks for sticking Disqus in the bin, where it belongs.

Cracking article, Steve.  Nice to see a return to primo content.  What's up next, the "Ray Le Maistre is actually Ray Winstone" rumor?  Or vice versa.  Welcome back.

Should you ever encounter Dan Jones and Grumpy Cat at the same party:

 

Dan is much more capable of pulling off a brown polyester blazer, but Grumpy Cat has slightly better diction.
