Colorado ID cuts coke but not tension on HBO's Girls

Girls CO ID 2.jpg
This ID was up to no good on Girls over the weekend.
On "Bad Friend," the episode of the zeitgeist-courting HBO comedy Girls that aired Sunday, the characters decide to buy some coke and indulge in cocaine-related hijinks. At one point, Lena Dunham's character, Hannah, and Andrew Rannell's Elijah are seen chopping out lines on a toilet seat and the camera lingers on the implement of choice: Elijah's Colorado ID.

Brandon Marshall
Slide show: Election night in Denver
The election is a time for taking sides -- on issues, on candidates, on which of the watching parties has the best drink specials. But this year's election joined a few sides along the way. (This is where you can go ahead and imagine is winking at you.) Continue reading for the best Craigslist missed connections to result from the 2012 election in Denver.

Debate 2012: The twenty best Big Bird memes to result from Romney's comment

Is Big Bird endangered? If today's Internet anger counts, maybe not.
The wild round-about that was last night's presidential debate came with a big load of soundbytes ("And by the way, I like coal"), none of them more Google-friendly than Romney's take on the large yellow star of Sesame Street. Romney told the world he loves Big Bird but would still cut funding to PBS. "I'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for," he said.

For fans of the world's bizarrely proportioned bird, this was the shot heard round the world. And the morning after, the Internet has exploded with fake (and funny) social media accounts devoted to the fair-feathered mutant -- and hundreds of memes to go with them. Continue reading for our twenty favorite takes on the beef between Romney and Big Bird.

Six ways the Big Blue Bear could make over his image

All illustrations by Jay Vollmar.
Since 2005, "I See What You Mean," arguably Denver's most beloved piece of public art, has been photographed, imitated and miniaturized. The sculpture outside of the Colorado Convention Center, nicknamed the Big Blue Bear, has been laughed at, loved, lingered over, tagged with a yarn-made ball and chain and pranked with a Big Blue Piece of Poop. It's even lent its name to a food truck and a new garden.

And after seven years, Big Blue is getting a bit of a facelift. But will it go far enough?

Seven Colorado icons we'd like to see immortalized in a corn maze

All illustrations by Jay Vollmar.
The Fritzler family will go down in history as proud, card-carrying Coloradans -- in large part because this LaSalle family has already made its mark in corn. For the past twelve years, the Fritzlers have created epic and (mostly state-centric) corn mazes, the most recent of which honors Broncos star Peyton Manning. They've got a great repertoire started -- all of which you can see in the post below -- but we've got some suggestions. Continue reading for the Colorado figures we'd like to see commemorated in corn.

Seven Denver spots that could benefit from David Beckham's H&M statue

Metro Denver will welcome another H&M store tomorrow, but sadly, even though statues of the store's body model, David Beckham, appeared in three cities last week, Denver is not getting one. (For a consolation prize, just look at those abs. Now try to look away.) In preparation for the chain's latest addition, this time at Broomfield's FlatIron Crossing , we thought long and well, hard, about where we'd like to see Beckham's bod appear in Denver. Continue reading for photos that show just how well Beckham would bend this city's already stunning scenery:
