Weird stuff for Friday

Weird stuff for Friday

After my rant yesterday where I called 56 legislators bigots, I settled for a light breakfast this morning, designed to offend no one but Bears fans.

  • 127 mobsters busted in New York and Joisey. Best nicknames: Bobby Glasses, Vinny Carwash, Jack the Whack, Johnny Cash, Junior Lollipops, and Tony Bagels.

  • The titular insect of "La Cucaracha" smokes weed. Seriously, the original lyrics:
    La cucaracha, la cucaracha, (The cucaracha, the cucaracha)
    Ya no quieres caminar, (Doesn't want to travel on)
    Porque no tienes, (Because she hasn't)
    Porque le falta, (Oh no, she hasn't)
    Marihuana que fumar... (Marijuana for to smoke)

  • Speaking of insects, scientists have determined the date humans started wearing clothes by studying the DNA of body lice.

  • My D.C. readers may be familiar with this, but my summer in DC I commuted via the Red Line and Blue Line and thus never discovered the Slug Line.

  • Skywatchers can plan the year with the Top 11 Astronomical Events of `11.

  • And I've been forced to side with the Republicans yet again as the governors of Wisconsin and Illinois bet on Sunday's game. Loser volunteers at a food bank in the other state (a good thing) and has to wear the other team's colors (a bad thing... for Pat Quinn!) Kos gets in on the buildup:
    Sunday's game is much bigger than even the Super Bowl. Nothing can ever top beating the Packers in a conference championship (sic). In fact, the two teams haven't even met in a playoff game for over 70 years.

    Sorry Jets and Steelers fans, but this is the game of the year.
