Anna and Guy Esposito happily entered their cat, Sal, in the pets section of the 2010 census, but they certainly didn’t expect that to result in their cat getting a jury summons. While that’s pretty silly to start with, the truly ridiculous part came when Anna filed to have Sal disqualified on the grounds that he doesn’t speak English -and the court refused to disqualify the feline.
If you lived in a small town in France and assumed that a strange incident fifty years ago involving bread, mass hallucinations and at least five deaths were related to mind control experiments by the CIA, people would think you were insane….That is, until recently uncovered documents proved you right.
Oh Arnold, you sneaky pocket-vetoing bastard.
The pentagon has come up with some really moronic “terrorist” threats since 9-11, but I sincerely think this one might take the cake. They have decided that terrorists will plan attacks on the White House or other major targets using gaming social network sites like WOW. That’s right, terrorists are going to create warlocks so they can elaborately line up real world maps over World Of Warcraft lands and then discuss attacking the areas with “spells.” Are you shaking in your shoes yet? Yeah, me neither.
I hate the direction our country is headed when it comes to this insane paranoia. The yeti expedition is more likely to find something real than the government is at this point.

Mmmm…hot dogs. Seriously, I love 7-11. It made me feel comforted when I saw them in Sweden and other places in Europe. Today is one of my favorite days of the year.
P.S. Viva la pizza dog.
All these news stories lately are making me a sucker for bear stories. First the bear and kitty friends, now this. Ram Singh Munda, a resident of India, saved this little bear when it was abandoned in the forest. The bear, named Rani or “queen,” became friends with his daughter who was recovering from the death of her mother and is now like a member of the family.
Unfortunately, rather than trying to do what’s best for all involved, the Indian government just arrested Munda, sent the bear to the zoo and his daughter to boarding school. Now the little bear isn’t eating. The whole thing just isn’t right. I do agree that he shouldn’t be raising a bear at his house, but he shouldn’t go to jail and the bear’s hunger strike is dangerous. Booo Indian government! Booo!
Seriously, how cute is that little bear on the bike? He looks like he’s smiling.
