Today in Wackytown

It’s the merry-go-round of craziness. Around and around we go. Where does the wheel stop spinning?

First: Rihanna’s press fiasco aboard the 777 tour plane.

The singer’s promotional trip to push her new album Unapologetic has involved drunken nudity and streaking, while she locked herself in the ‘panic room’. It’s not the first farce involving pop stars, alcohol and bored members of the press.

There’s video at the link, but you may be disappointed. The streaker isn’t the pop star but an Australian journalist.

Next: John McAfee, former software tycoon now on the run and wanted for murder in Belize, and who last week was phoning Wired magazine — supposedly from the cardboard box under which he’d buried himself on the beach — has upped his game.

John McAfee Blogs About His Many Disguises.

He also went as a taco and burrito vendor one day, and on another day writes that he dressed up as a drunk German tourist “with a partially bandaged face and wearing speedo swimming trunks and a distasteful, oversized Hawaiian shirt and yelling loudly at anyone who would listen – ‘Leck mich um ausch!'”

The first comment on article says it all: “Your move, Charlie Sheen.”

And finally: Three deer use automatic doors to enter Iowa store.

Coralville Police Chief Barry Bedford says the deer used doors that open automatically to get into a Kohl’s store.

He says the fawns stayed in the store’s vestibule, but their mother made it into the store and headed toward the back.

There’s no mystery here. It was a Kohl’s. The deer were scouting the latest in plaid shirts and Elmer Fudd caps. They’re planning to dress like hunters and turn the tables. Watch out, Iowa.

  1. I think John McAfee was last seen with a disco ball on his head.

  2. Going into a Kohl’s here in Iowa is never a single doe’s first choice, especially with two fawns alongside. But, hey, have you ever tried using a mouse or a touch screen with a split hoof?

  3. By the way, there’s been some discussion here in Iowa about this particular story headline. “Three deer use automatic doors to enter Iowa store” sounds like the beginning of a joke to me…

    Three deer walk into a Kohl’s to buy plaid shirts and Elmer Fudd hats… The first deer says, “… ????

    Take it away, “lying for a living” readers!
