A day of rest... and news

Japanese man finds a fish hook in his burger. The burger is, of course, inside him at the time. Doctors say that surgery is an option if they can't get the hook to come out "naturally". I don't think I'd be willing to wait to find out. I think "naturally" would be worse.

Brothers-in-law get into fight over politics that ends with stabbing. I can't see why we haven't abolished politics yet. I can't think of a single thing politics has done right that couldn't have been done just as easily, and better, without it.

Man pees on police station. Probably not the best place to do that.

Drunk driver didn't even realize he was missing a tire. That's okay... he didn't seem to realize he was driving, either.

Lithuania's main airline, flyLAL, changes its International Securities Identifying Number to eliminate the terminal four sixes. I don't see why they bother... whether it ends with 6666 or 7995, it's still ISIN.

Killer robots are the latest big threat. Persons denying the existence of robots may be robots themselves.

Kindergartner suspended for having a Mohawk. Why would anyone WANT hair like that?

There's a new mnemonic for remembering the names of the eleven planets, but we're not going to tell you what it is. Now to drag Naoko Takeuchi back to the drawing board and have her create two new "dwarf" Sailor Warriors. There are even characters called "Ceres" and "Eris" in other series she could base them on.

The mayor who posed in underwear on a fire truck has been recalled by a narrower margin than Bush's "win" in Florida 2000. They say it's not the underwear, but her views on water and the local golf course. "Two wrongs don't make a right!"

Stephen King and John Mellencamp write a musical. I think it's about a guy who "walks tall" and gets his head chopped off by a ceiling fan.

Teachers get reprimanded for patting down students in search of $5. And they didn't even find the money. To make things deliciously amusing, today's entry on my calendar of stupidity was the story I mentioned a while back about gym teachers accepting $1 bribes from students, eventually losing their jobs for a profit of a few hundred dollars.

Prison inmate sues because the correctional department is refusing him/her proper treatment relating to gender reassignment. You think it's cruel and unusual to let nature take its course? I'll tell you what's cruel and unusual... killing your wife in "self-defense" when she pours hot tea in your crotch. Sure, it hurts, but there are alternatives to murder. Make her have a baby... that'd do it right there.

Bank robber makes a big show of putting on his stocking, then runs into a nearby apartment building. "By the way, if any police are looking for me, I'll be right in there!"

Pakistan takes YouTube off the Internet because someone insulted their religion. Now see how much trouble this religion stuff causes?
