Off topic: New Year’s resolutions, beyond the ball drop, drunk birds

About those New Year’s resolutions, here are some statistics. Speaking of New Year’s resolutions, will you “abstain from relying on verbal hashtags to emphasize a point”? They didn’t drop the ball: Instead, some cities dropped a possum, an orange, a peach, a watermelon, a shoe, a peep as they counted down to 2015. And you don’t say: When finches get drunk, they slur when they sing.
