This headline just can't be improved upon. "Man shoots off finger while using bathroom." I have a feeling he's VERY lucky it was just a finger.

A pizza thief had a rather enterprising way of avoiding capture after his escapade. He had the pizza delivered to an apartment two floors down from his own, then met the delivery man with a knife and took the pizzas without paying. Unfortunately for him, he gave them his real phone number, and the police traced that and found his family eating the pizzas.

A judge rules that mooning is not illegal in Maryland. What's the big deal about a butt anyway? Unlike the gender-specific private parts, everyone has one. Besides, mooning is just an invitation for a kicking.

The weirdest pre-nup you'll probably ever see proves that rules can't save a marriage.

Kitten hitchhikes down the NJ Turnpike on the underside of an SUV. That has GOT to be one of Marshmallow Kitty's kittens. There's no other explanation.

An artist chains his own legs together so he can draw a picture of it, then loses the key. It makes even less sense when you realize that he did that in the desert and had to hop for 12 hours to find help.

A building in Evansville turns out to have a hidden second story. What's amazing is that, apparently, someone found a way to hide it from the OUTSIDE, too.

A church in Oregon is selling Angel Soft toilet paper to raise money. As a public service, they could even print "Do not play with guns while using bathroom" on each square for a nominal fee.
Moa: The King of Destruction

Today's Bridge: We lost again. I had an opportunity to call their bluff and double an off four contract, but I didn't. That was my mistake. But they put together two games and we underbid a notrump contract, although it might have been due to the opponents' play that we made it with overtricks. I think they could have hurt us by attacking other suits.

Today's Psychonauts: I'm missing three figments from Black Velvetopia, but I know where one is, because it's one I missed last time through the game as well. I may or may not have the Regeneration upgrade by the time I get Confusion... I've got the Confusion upgrade without the power itself. I spent most of the time watching The Simpsons, though. The creators had some interesting things to say about the early episodes.

The plot of I"s has become very interesting with the most recent book, so it's starting to feel more like Video Girl Ai. I'm reading more of The Wallflower now, and I got a bit lost in the first chapter because it was the last chapter of a storyline that started in the previous book, but I could never tell the main characters apart anyway. I'm on the sixth book, and I still don't know who's who. It just doesn't seem to matter much.

I hope to sleep better tonight because I took some sinus medicine and didn't eat a whole Tony's pizza like I did last night. That was a sad pizza. The eighth-slice shown on the box had about half the toppings of the entire pizza that was inside. There were three pepperonis on that tiny slice, and seven on the whole pizza. I don't know how you feel, but I definitely can't call that "loaded" with toppings. They were only two bucks each, but if that's all I'm going to get and there won't be any leftovers for lunch, I'm going to stick with pizzas that have substance. Speaking of which, I ran out of bagels and had to use toasted bread for my egg salad sandwich. It didn't turn out too badly.
