Today in Weirdness

Here’s what’s going on out there on Planet Weird:

First: this was clearly a delivery mixup. The Elmo cake should have been sent to the penitentiary, along with the cherry pie containing a file.

“Knife In Walmart Cake: Cayden Bibeau, 2, Finds Weapon In His Elmo-Themed Birthday Cake.”

And I take issue with the headline. A paring knife is only a weapon when you’re fighting over possession of the potato peeler.

Second: Council bans apostrophes from all street signs to avoid “confusion.”

Mid-Devon Council declined to comment further and did not elaborate on who might be confused by the use of correct punctuation.

Grammar is scary.

Finally: The Gloucester Cheese Rolling competition has at last been captured on video.

Again, I take issue with the title of the video. Cheese rolling isn’t the world’s stupidest competition. Bog snorkelling season hasn’t even started.

  1. Grammar is scary. Its intimating for tho’s who dont know ho’w to us puntiation or spel;

    And I agree with you, a paring knife is only a weapon in battle; otherwise, it’s an implement of veggie destruction only.

    Finally, bog snorkeling rules, but the cheese dash is hysterical!

  2. Ban on apostrophe’s? Mon dieu. Whatever next? Between you and I, Meg, I dispair of the English language.

  3. Not to quibble, but shouldn’t that be…between you and me?
