The oppressive heat in the south is causing major problems for people, animals and plants. When will there be a break in this record breaking heat??? Hopefully soon.
AND as far as the constant bickering out of Washington DC. I want everyone be sent to "time-out". They have to stay there until they can come out and play nicely with each other.
SO...for now, I am going to get my news from the little boxes in the KC Star that say Weird News.
One Way to Make a Point
A mayor in Vilnius, Lithuania decided to send a strong message to people that park illegally in bike lanes.
Arturas Zuokas who is a cycle enthusiast, decided to make a video as a warning to the possible consequences resulting for parking in the bike lanes.
Posted on the mayor's YouTube page, Art (is it all right if I call you Art?) is reportedly explaining that in the future the city will use tanks to take care of the offending autos left in the bike lane by their rude owners.
While the actual video is a staged hoax, the mayor said he is hopeful that residents hear him, loud and clear. He is prepared to repeat the performance.
Well, Art...that was a creative PSA.
What's Up [you really need a] Doc?
A man in Idaho Falls, Idaho has been told not to wear his bunny suit in public anymore. Complaints by area residents say he has been frightening small children.
The Idaho Falls police department got calls on Monday that a man in a black bunny suit was being a menace.
One report said, Falkingham was peeking from behind a tree and pointing his finger in a manner of a pretend gun at a small child.
|Even without the bunny suit, he is a|
little strange, don't you think?
Really a ballerina?? When did a 34 year old in a bunny suit be the "good" choice.
Proven beyond any doubt...People will buy anything
An artist, Justin Gignac made a bet with a friend at an ad agency that he could sell anything if it was packaged right. Seems as though Justin proved his theory.
If you are now craving some authentic New York trash to call your very own go to NYC Garbage to order some.
There are entrepreneurs and there are ENTREPRENEURS.
Why is she being called a Mermaid???
Oliver Voss, an artist in Hamburg, Germany has set put an interesting display of his work in the Alster River and it is getting plenty of attention.
Why, oh why, do they refer to this as a mermaid?
When is the term "backfired" taken literally?
Jordan had the idea that in order to win his girlfriend back he would illicit a friend to shoot him in the back. His theory being that she would feel sympathy for him.
His plan back fired. (heh heh)
In what Wisconsin prosecutors are calling the most phenomenally stupid case they have ever seen, three Wisconsin men are pleading guilty to felony weapons charges.
According to the complaint Jordan asked his friend Anthony Woodall to shoot him in the back three times.
Anthony refused to actually pull the trigger but enlisted the help of another friend Michael Wezykl, who agreed to carry out the plan for cash and pills.
After retrieving the gun from Wezykl's home the trio went to a nearby park. After the first shot missed his back and hit his arm, Cardella asked for Wezykl to try again. Seemingly, Wezykl was out of the mood at this point and said "I'm done."
Wezyk and Woodall both were sentenced to two years probation and 100 hours of community service. Cardella had the charges dropped against him and was punished by the fact he didn't get his girlfriend back even after taking a bullet for her.
How does one begin to fathom the depths of idiocy?
Is it Kate's dress or not?
Thelma Levett, a balloon artist in Leicestershire, England has her career taking off very much like the house in the movie "UP".
Earlier this year, she fashioned a wedding dress out of 5000 balloons. She says she was inspired by Kate Middleton's dress. Levett is quoted as saying "It's not a replication."
|Really?? I can hardly tell them apart!|
I love the fact, Levett thought that squeaks could put a pall (who uses that word?) on the wedding day but the fact you are wearing balloons isn't.
Finally, a good Facebook comment..
|Facebook is not your friend|
US Marshalls along with a task force of the NYPD raided Burgos' apartment and found him sitting at his computer.
I wonder if he had time to post to his Facebook page..."I guess they can."
The Good for the Day...In the article involving the shooting....Woodall refused the request to shoot his friend because he is a felon and didn't want to break his probation by handling a gun.
The Bad for the Day...People will buy anything.
The Weird for the Day The other day, I came out of the Target to find another stupid parker. This is an actual photo...no Photoshop...really.
