Just Another Day....


Serge drove south, wearing a cheetah costume and hostage-negotiator Windbreaker, sitting next to a panda as they passed a bicyclist with dangling iguanas, looking in the rearview mirror as officers interviewed Korean salon workers, an Australian film crew, Marilyn Monroe and JFK, while a man in a camo hat ran through a dozen bodies chasing a small alligator. Serge shook his head to himself. "Life goes by way too fast when it's the same thing every day."

--fromClownfish Bluesby Tim Dorsey

Motivational

     "We're almost next to him," said Coleman.
     "Get ready with the bullhorn." Serge drove closer to the narrow footpath circling the water.
     Coleman giggled. "Is he going to be surprised!"
     "That's the whole point," said Surge, reaching for a knob. "This is all about unlocking inner potential." Serge cranked the volume.
     "...Eye of the tiger!..."

Beauty is as Beauty Does

"None of the Fangs could deny it: Buster was beautiful. As he walked to the front of the stage, his evening gown ridiculously sequined, his long, blond curls bouncing with the rhythm of his confident stride, the rest of his family began to realize that he might actually win. Mrs. Fang whispered, 'He's going to do it, Annie. Your brother is going to be Little Miss Crimson Clover.' Annie watched Buster, his face paralyzed with happiness, and immediately understood that, for her brother, this was no longer about making an artistic statement.

Something Else to Worry About


"A shortage of bees makes it necessary to haul bees to agricultural areas for pollination purposes, so it had to happen sooner or later. A truck carrying bees through Coeur d'Alene, Idaho overturned on I-90 in June andspilled up to a million bees. Traffic was backed up for a couple of hours, and drivers were warned to keep their windows rolled up.

To make matters worse, Coeur d'Alene was hosting an Iron Man Triathlon event at the same time. That couldn’t have been pleasant."

I knew it!

Down the Drain

They say he was done in by his doodie. Police in Thousand Oaks, California, used DNA found in an unflushed toilet to finger a burglary suspect. Detectives managed to sniff out the suspect after they found some fecal matter in a toilet at the crime scene and had it tested for DNA.

“Most people don’t assume or don’t know thatDNA can be obtained by other thingsbesides hair and saliva,” Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Detective Tim Lohman said.

His mother must be so proud. How many times does she have to tell him to flush?

Accident? I'm not so sure....


A bizarre shooting incident in April in Lee County, Georgia, wasdetermined to be an accident. Larry McElroy fired a 9mm pistol at an armadillo in his yard. He could not foresee what happened next.
The bullet killed the animal, but also ricocheted off of it, hit a fence, went through the back door of his mother-in-law's mobile home, through a recliner she was sitting in, and into her back.According to a report, McElroy was about 100 yards away from the home at the time.
The mother-in-law, 74-year-old Carol Johnson, was taken to a hospital, but her injuries were minor.

I knew it!


I found this on the internet, so it must be true!

The Real Reason You’re Craving Junk Food? You’re Thinking Too Hard!

If you’re like many office workers, your desk job gives you a double fat increasing whammy: Not only are you sitting, inactive, at a desk for most of the day, but this type of mental, knowledge-based work actually makes it more difficult to control appetite and may make us eat more calories and fat. Since the work requires glucose for maximum brainpower—well, we naturally reach for more fuel.

Can't Make this Stuff Up


Sydney--A new Sydney Harbor ferry will be christened Ferry McFerryface--Sydney's 2nd-favorite choice after the now famous Boaty McBoatface.

And in another piece from today's Gazette: Police in Denmark say a man is suspected of stealing 12 of Copenhagan's green public benches.

Do you suppose he was redecorating?

Shark!


"Next time you're afraid to share ideas remember that someone once said 'Let's make a movie with a tornado full of sharks.'"


A Freudian Slip...

...or something no woman has EVER said?

"Freud thought the control of fire led to self-control. Around a hearth, he said, we have to suppress a primal urge to quench the flames with a stream of urine."
