Please don't mow before 10:00 AM, give the night shift workers a break.

1. MI5
2. Disturbing is the first word that comes to mind. The second word is "so last year". Pi's (I think) ?dance? that went with his ?song?, and I use those terms very, very loosely. Ride your pony.
5. North Dakota State Bisons.
9. South Park?
11. I'm gonna guess Minneapolis.
13. Another guess. Reasoner?
