News, but not the serious kind

You never saw a guy pulled apart before?

February 11, 2008

Quick quiz: this picture shows…

  • A dude paying the price for not knowing this is the “Year of the Rat.” His guess, ”Year of the Miniature Schnauzer,” was just plain stupid. 
  • A grotesque version of our wishbone tradition. One of the rope-pullers will get his wish, but the victim certainly won’t.
  • A performer who tours as ”The Human Hammock.” Sadly, this is the extent of his act, which has been described as “pathetic.”
