A Missouri City, Missouri man running unopposed for city council polls no votes at all. Not a sausage. Bugger all. We've seen it happen in fiction, but I don't think I've ever heard of such a thing in real life. You'd think he'd at least vote for himself, though.

Teacher puts clothespins on kindergartners' lips to keep them quiet. If only everyone would do that, we wouldn't have problems like these.

A man arrested for DWI uses his brother's name, then calls that brother to bail him out. "Well, yeah, I tried to pin the rap on you. But you'll still stick up for me, right?"

A devastating prank listing on Craigslist has people steal everything from a rental property, including the kitchen sink. Sounds like another story I reported on recently.

This firefighter and his bikini are all over the news. It's funny, because he was just another drunk driver aside from being dressed up like a woman.

Insane man kicks a painting of David and Goliath because he says it disturbs him. He did the same thing to some pigeons outside, the squad car, and the bunk in his jail cell. But when he kicked a TV because Paris Hilton was on, he was pronounced completely sane.

"Happy Boys Voice", the Chinese follow-up to American Idol ripoff "Super Girls", has been instructed to keep things clean and tasteful. This means that the Simon Cowell-style judge will have to be replaced with someone who doesn't insult the contestants, and the boys can't wear wigs and bikinis. I don't think many people will watch.

A British dentist peed in the sink and then didn't wash his hands or the instruments before operating on patients. This, not the drills, is the number one rational fear at the dentist's office.

A New York social worker buys jewelry with a city bank account. It would be a pretty simple (through grand) misuse of city funds except that this guy has never worked for the city. He stole a government account and used it to buy jewelry. How stupid is that?

An elderly German woman sets a trap for a thief. The old ladies are really taking it to the criminals this week. Maybe we should hire more of them for the police forces.

The president of Italian broadcasting service RAI fails to have reality shows removed from his stations. Don't worry, big guy... we're all right behind you.

Uganda scraps some discriminatory laws, including an adultery law that makes it legal for men, but illegal for women. About time someone puts those married men to task.

Interesting about the disturbing art story. I was just reading an article about insanity brought on by seeing art. But the art they were describing was stuff like Micheangelo and Davinci and such. Stil interesting.

Re: interesting
I think a certain degree of insanity is required to look at most of those in the first place. So who can tell?

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
