News, but not the serious kind
Honk if this seems strange…
Strange days have found us
Strange days have tracked us down
Oh, I think it’s that war in Libya. It’s getting weirder and weirder, and starting to remind me of tracks off that “Strange Days” album.
In this top photo, for instance, you can see an anti-Gaddafi fighter walking his ostrich.
That does look a little bit odd, but troops in war often have a mascot.
What’s that thing he’s got on?
The caption says he’s wearing a tiger mask. Doesn’t say why.
Gosh, it all does seem kind of surreal, now that you mention it.
Whoa! Did you see that intense flash, Blog Guy? Somebody just shot off a big fricking rocket-propelled grenade!
Yeah, that would be that guy on the crutches over there.
So, you suppose that poor ostrich knows he’s going to be eaten, or do you think they have some way of pretending it isn’t happening?
What? How could an ostrich possibly ignore something like that. I mean, he’s standing there in the sand, he’s got to see it coming.
I guess you’re right, Blog Guy. You can go back to “Strange Days” now.
