The world of the unusual

January 28, 2007

Hi Grit

I thought I would share a few stories that I came across this morning.

Crime of the day. It could only happen in Ireland. A convict on weekend release from prison, when faced with delays in returning within his deadline, relied upon his experience to solve the problem. He stole a car and drove it back to the jail. He received a suspended sentence for the act.

Monty Python. It seems that in Malaysia they have a shortage of Guard Dogs for their fruit orchards. This could have something to do with a large python, who recently swallowed eleven of these dogs. The snake must have one gigantic appetite.

Abandon Train. I guess this could only happen in the UK. During the recent small incidence of snow a train got stuck (nothing unusual there you might think.) However, in this case the train driver and crew obviously decided they had had enough, so they got off the train and ordered a taxi to take them home, leaving the passengers stranded. I can’t say that I have noticed this option in the Customer Care manual.

The liberal media ain’t real bright

January 26, 2007

Hi Brit,

While we all suspect, or so I suspect, that the liberal media aren’t running on all cylinders, I stumbled across a news item that illustrates it nicely,

Ted Nugent denies immigrant reference.

Now, for those of you who are not familiar with Ted Nugent, not only is he one of the best guitarists in the world, but he is a fanatic hunter with bow, firearms, and, I suspect, his bare hands.  I’ve heard rumors that he is tough enough to chase his prey down on foot, kill it in any one of several bloody ways, and eat it raw.  He is also known to be a straight forward, outspoken, and direct type, who has absolutely no hesitation to tell you exactly what he thinks.  So, to pick a fight with this killing machine, a man who could easily slaughter most people and compose a great new musical work while doing it, knowing that he is rich enough to get off with at least one murder, to me, is definite proof of stupidity.

 Rock on Ted!
