Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Some blog readers have been asking why I’m not in Las Vegas covering that O.J. Simpson memorabilia trial. There are several reasons:
2. These photos from the trial scare me. I don’t want him giving me one of those stink eye stares. Would you?
3. Now that I know he wants his memorabilia back, I can’t look at him without feeling guilty about owning some Simpson autographs. I mean, if I keep them, how will he ever get more?
Recently, I ranted here about the sad state of today’s political protesters.
And now, more evidence that protest isn’t what it used to be. Note this caption informing us that these protesters are throwing “cobblestones, Molotov cocktails and shoes” at riot police.
You were mugged by a nine-year-old?
No, this one is all grown up now. But I’d know that red hair and chipper voice anyplace!
Blog Guy, in this crazy world today, security is very much on my mind. Are any other countries making progress in protecting their people and property?
So, somebody stole a rare shark from an aquarium in England. The owner thinks the thief “came prepared,” because it turns out to steal a shark you have to show up with a big bag full of water, a polystyrene box and a net.
No, Salvatore’s in prison.
Um, her brother Giuseppe?
Prison. No, wait! I think Giuseppe got out! HE can give her away!
Welcome to the tribulations of planning a wedding in Sicily for the daughter of a former “boss of bosses.” And it only gets worse.
For sure. Have you seen the new Mercedes-Benz MS (Maximum Security) model in this photo? It is SO cool! The new security system tracks a would-be thief, snags him around the legs, hoists him upside-down on a retractable pole and holds him until police arrive.
It’s called ”Police Pope!” See, this guy used to be a cop, and when he becomes the Pope he still misses police work. So they call him in on tough cases. You know, he’s out on that little balcony a lot, and when they need help they flash a signal. He puts on his cop hat, and he’s off!
I get that question a lot. Yes, it is. You take for instance the simple police line-up. In Peru, the cops make it much more obvious who they think is guilty. Like they will show a real suspect along with three squirrels, three pianos, three circus clowns or something like that.
