Oddly Enough Blog

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?

Look at the scythe of that knife!


Honey, I’m goin’ shoppin’ downtown. You want anything?

I sure do, Earl. We need skim milk, tuna fish, Hostess Ding Dongs, and darn, there was something else…

Oh yeah, daggers! We’ve got some birthdays coming up and daggers make great gifts.

Letting the qat out of the bag…


Blog Guy, I read with interest your item about the goofy protesters in Yemen. You know, the snake-biters, the bread-heads and so on.

So have they made progress since they started getting goofier? I’ve seen plenty of photos of angry crowds over there.

Get out your daggers, kids!


Okay staff, we’ve been hired by the anti-government faction over in Yemen to get some publicity for their cause.

It seems that what with Bahrain and Egypt and Libya and all, nobody is even paying attention to the poor protesters in Yemen.

Be sure to wear some flour in your hair…




Welcome back to a regular little feature we like to call, “Stuff maybe we should have mentioned in the photo caption, but didn’t.”

Pay close attention. I know this guy here looks like somebody with pieces of bread taped onto his head.
