Last week, mental_floss co-founder Mangesh Hattikudur proposed to his lovely girlfriend, Lizzie. It's hard to turn down one of America's Coolest Entrepreneurs Under 30, so they are now engaged.
This is exciting for numerous reasons. First, of course, there's the genuine happiness of the couple. In addition to being the driving creative force behind the _floss, Mango is one of the finest people you'll ever meet. They deserve each other (and not in the negative way that phrase is often used). Second, this should cut back on the number of emails I receive from Mangomaniacs who want me to put in a good word for them.
Third, it gives us a reason to post a celebratory sale. Everything in our store (excluding subscriptions) is 15% off. Just visit the mental_floss store and enter the code "shesaidyes" during checkout. In one way or another, a portion of the proceeds will help support the nuptials. Here's a sample of what's for sale:
(Congrats, Mangesh & Lizzie!)
