Tattoo you

Put that brand where the sun don't shine: The employees of a New York brokerage firm have gotten tattoos of the company's logo. The tattoos prove the workers' loyalty -- and score them an extra 15 percent commission.

Even disgruntled employees could be gung-ho for the corporate tattoo -- as long as it's on a certain body part.

@SuperRichDude: Billionaire Warren Buffett doesn't have a computer on his desk at Berkshire Hathaway headquarters, but the Oracle of Omaha still managed to join Twitter.

Buffett, 82, was gaining 1,000 followers a minute but as of Friday was following nobody. You'd think he'd at least follow Bill Gates -- the only person in the world who's got more dough than he does.

School takes a sun day: Sunny skies and temperatures in the 60s Friday prompted the principal of a private school in Bellingham to give students and teachers the day off.

He might be starting a trend, given the typical rainy, blustery spring weather in Western Washington. We can hear it now: "Everett and Marysville schools running two hours today late due to morning sunbreaks."
