News, but not the serious kind

What’s wrong with this picture?

Blog Guy, I’ve been seeing photos of well-armed rebels in Yemen in recent days, and I notice a lot of swollen cheeks. Are those plucky lads in need of major dental care?

No, don’t worry about that. These guys are just getting stoned on a leaf called qat.

According to Wikipedia, qat contains an amphetamine-like stimulant which is said to cause excitement and euphoria.

But…but…but… That one guy is holding a huge honking rocket-propelled grenade! Should he be doing that?

Honk if this seems strange…

Strange days have found us
Strange days have tracked us down

Blog Guy, how’s come you’re playing a Doors album really loud? What’s up with that?

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.

So what’s the worst that could happen?

Sarge, if it’s okay with you, I’m gonna take a little cigarette break.

Okay Lonnie, there’s not much goin’ on here right now. Say, are you just gonna stand that rocket-propelled grenade up on end like that?

Welcome to the Grenade-o-Rama!

First off, ladies and gentlemen, I want to thank you all for coming out to our sixth annual Grenade-o-Rama! I don’t know about you folks, but I think this is the best one yet!

Let’s also thank the ladies for the tasty deviled eggs and potato salad, which we should probably eat as quickly as possible considering it’s 110 degrees out here.
