Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, I am really pumped about the Civil War 150th anniversary stuff coming up. Aren’t you?
You bet. I went to the Manassas reenactment over the weekend, and loved it! What I saw was First Manassas, as opposed to Second Manassas, which happened a year later.
Yep, just like Rocky movies. I already have my tickets for Gettysburg III.
Anyway, it was very hot, and the troops were drinking from these round canteens. Where do you suppose the soldiers bought those?
From the general store or snack shop on their base?
Yes, they got their canteens from the Canteen.
Did you know the Confederates had spies and accomplices working for them in the North?
Hey Blog Guy, I know you love to cook and sometimes share culinary secrets.
I spoke to an Italian chef, and I think I can help you out. You’ll need a butt-load of fresh basil, some parmesan, pine nuts, garlic and olive oil. I’m going to make a trial batch in my own kitchen while I write this.
Blog Guy, you’ve written a lot about police decoys in the past. I guess they have to be highly skilled to do that job, right?
Sure, some of them are, but others are just phoning it in.
I’m not sure when our state lawmakers began competing to pass the most wacky weapons laws, but it’s getting pretty hard to keep up with them.
Those signs of the onrushing Apocalypse that I like to chronicle here are coming so fast I can barely keep track of them these days.
It turns out, the Arizona Legislature has just voted to make the Colt Single Action Army Revolver the state’s official firearm.
Okay sir, we hired your consulting firm, flew you over here from the U.S. in first class, and bought you a big steak dinner.
It’s time to share your military expertise. For example, at this crucial road checkpoint here, what should we be doing, Mr. – I’m sorry, please remind me of your name?
Lonnie, what were we thinking? I KNEW we shouldn’t have booked a fashion show in Mexico, what with the drug wars, the gang hits, the brazen shootouts all over the place!
It’ll be fine, Boss. Some of the models want to wear Kevlar vests on the runway, but those are pretty fashionable these days.
I just can’t make up stuff like this. I sure wish I could, but I can’t.
Maine lawmakers have approved legalizing switchblades for people with one arm.
Our story says this will keep one-armed people from having to open folding knives with their teeth in emergencies. Really.
Blog Guy, you’ve written a lot about those Government Death Panels. I was wondering, do they have special vehicles I should watch for in case they stop at my house?
Some do, but most of them just travel in their own cars and put in for mileage.
Then how do they carry the weapons they use in their job?
Well, you can hang on to them from the window of a sedan, or if you have rifles you can stick them out the sunroof, er, gun roof.
