This is the world that we live in

It’s baffling out there. Things that confuse and amaze me:

Wouldn’t this man’s prowess with the electric saw merely prove his fitness for a job?  Austrian saws off own foot to avoid work.

And here I thought Easter was about chasing the Easter Bunny into a trap with sticks and dogs. Easter Egg Hunt canceled because of aggressive parents. “Organizers of an annual Easter egg hunt attended by hundreds of children have canceled this year’s event, citing the behavior of aggressive parents who swarmed into the tiny park last year, determined that their kids get an egg.”

I thought Spinal Tap had taught everybody: If you’re going to stuff your jockey shorts, use a cucumber.  Man arrested after “abnormal bulge” in underpants. “Police allegedly found nine stolen credit cards, a loaded firearm, about 180 ecstasy tablets, about 28 grams of amphetamines and a large amount of cash hidden down the man’s pants.”

Why was nobody fighting for Trisha Yearwood? Country Music Debate Leads to Hammer Attack. “An argument about country music stars Reba McEntire and Loretta Lynn escalated into a domestic dispute that has Savannah-Chatham police looking for a man believed to have attacked two people with a hammer Tuesday.”

Never, in years of owning pets, has this happened to me. What am I doing wrong? Businessman’s snake vomits cash.

And finally: Yo quiero tacocopter. I need this service. How do I petition the FAA to let tiny robot drones deliver to tacos to me?

Tacocopter Aims to Deliver Tacos Using Unmanned Drone Helicopters.

  1. The guy with the pharmacy/gun store down his trousers sounds prepared. For what, exactly, I’m afraid to ask… He sure seemed to cover all the bases…

    These were great. Thanks, Meg. I’m doing a little recovery…and laughter is definitely the best medicine. Well, right after a pants-load of ecstasy, methamphetamines and handguns, anyway…

  2. All I can do is shake my head. Have we always been this insane and only now know about it because of the Internet?

    Here at our apt., they’re having an Easter Egg hunt on Saturday. The 24-year-old who organized it has no idea what is coming her way! The flyer for the event states that it’s for kids 13 and under. Oh baby, is this going to be a mess. I will not be attending.
