Re: Jimmy

True enough, Naut! I suppose it would be like the New Mexico flag bearing the likeness of two people skiing, and arguing there should only be one! I don't know of any ski resorts in New Mexico . . .

Re:

Thanks, adnohr. And when I read this stuff, and/or watch the evening news, cringing is almost reflexive! How can you not? Oh, and gritting my teeth, twitching my eye and slowly shaking my head are usually a part of the ritual too . . .

Re:

Crazy weirdos indeed, Kabu! And that's probably putting it mildly! No, I never really have a favorite either, but I try to save what I think to be the most bizarre for last! Really makes you feel 'normal,' don't they . . . ?

Re:

No need, Annicita. I simply check a section in the daily newspaper The New York Post entitled Strange But True, and pluck out the odd two or three of the most bizarre stories, and group them together for my Friday posting! You should see some of the ones I don't bother posting . . .

Re:

Those 'cardboard homes' are no joke, Krisles, to many people.  Yes, when I was younger, we too would have enjoyed playing in them, but our parents would probably have not allowed us to construct them on our front lawn! That's something that should be kinda out-of-sight! And I don't know what a llama would be thinking either . . .

Re:

Now that, C C T, is a strange combination . . . eggs, naked women and bees! I don't think I've seen even a science-fiction program with such a combination! And be glad you're not in the majority, because the majority today seems to be falling closer and closer to rock bottom . . .

Re:

Or perhaps, FSI, they should have just bit the bullet, gone to a store, and purchased the honey legally! It's not that expensive, or worth getting overly stung for! Of all the things to attempt to steal . . .

Neat stuff! And just to annoy our Minneapolitans - what are sailboats doing in Minneapolis? The smallest bodies of water they should be on are the Great Lakes...

silly people doing silly thiings and taking somethings too far. Don't have any favorites this week...they are all crazy weirdos.

you must be trolling the web into the wee hours looking for these gems

Really intersting group today, Jimmy.  How does anyone think they know what a llama thinks?  Being stupid enough to try to steal honey from a hive with a beard is uncommonly stupid, a new low. And I saw cardboard homes in Caracas years ago that would have been dream playhouses in my childhood...but familes were living in them!

First you  put me off off eggs , and naked women , and then bees. A good job I am not in the majority Jimmy.

Those criminals should have invested in some beekeeping suits.
