Founding _flosser Will Pearson recently sat down with the good people at Birmingham Weekly to discuss the past, present and future of mental_floss.

Posing with Will are Hazel (security), Winslow (senior art director), Neely (editor-in-chief) and Josh (art director). Not Pictured: Emmitt.

Ah, there's Emmitt. Here's how Winslow explained why the pup wasn't in the group shot: "Emmitt gets unnerved when you try to make him do something. So when I tried to make him look at the camera (and not bury his head in one of our crotches), he just left the shoot."

If you're in the Birmingham area, we'd love to meet you at our October 12th Trivia Show at Cantina on 29th Street. Though I can't promise Emmitt and Hazel will be in attendance. You'll have to meet them another time.
