Dragon attack

A park ranger in Indonesia was attacked by a komodo dragon who climbed in his window. We are to believe the attack was unprovoked, but I bet the man tried to steal his gold.

Though it looks like it’s giving birth, this frog actually has 7 legs. It was found in the kitchen of a restaurant in China… presumably for being served… as a king-size frog legs portion.
Not much more to read at this link, but I feel obligated to show credit.

Week of the rat

I was waiting for the rodent triple play or rat trifecta to take effect, but I'm running out of time. This will be old news in about six minutes.
Whatever tickles your fancy, I have links to two strange rodent stories for you today. You may prefer the tiny buck-toothed naked rat or the humongous rat so big, he just might eat your cat… or your dog!

Strange, naked buck-toothed rats.

Scary giant rat in China.

All together stupid

Sure, this guy is a real jerk-face, but jailing him?

Check out this headline:
Man jailed after harassing elderly neighbors by whistling Addams Family theme each time he saw them.

Never mind nanny state. Sounds like a nya-nya state. Don’t we have better things to get our knickers in a bunch about.
Leopold Wrobel needs a spanking, not jail. Kathleen and Michael Sharpe need to grow their fogey behinds up.

Read the ridiculous article here.

Not for the squeamish

Yuckers. I found this list in a blog by Robert Brockway. He was completely grossed out by his list of “Most Disturbing Animals,” and I can’t say I blame him. These are creatures that will never come close to being cute. No matter how much I try, I just can’t bring myself to take one home.
How he managed to compile this list in three parts is beyond my ghoulish comprehension. I tip my fangs to you, Mr. Brockway. You have won the award for actually grossing me out.

Roberts lists get progressively more disgusting, so I’ve listed the worst first. However, you’ll find my two favorites posted below. Quite tame by his list’s standards.

Avert your eyes if you are squeamish.

Otherwise, enjoy these links:

Enough zombie traffic already

Well, apparently these zombie traffic hoaxes have become the new trendy prank. It’s not as funny anymore. We know that humans don’t yield to zombies while driving anyway.

But if you are keeping count… clicky.

I friend dead people

An amusing and sad read about people who die, and how their Facebook page is treated postmortem.


PS The Grim Reaper has many Facebook friends, but they are sick of his stupid status updates.

Death gets a Mulligan

The grim reaper missed his mark today, but quickly rearranged the universe to commit his deadly deed. Don’t mess with the Grim Reaper.

Sad article here.

This one goes to twelve

WPIX may have a new Chiller Theater hand.

The cutest human baby possible was born recently. He has six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot. He’s a natural to play the part of a live-action Chiller hand if WPIX ever wants to make a new opening.
None of the extra digits are nonfunctional. I hope they let the little prince keep them all.

Read about it here.

IDiOT Message Board

The zombies have made their way to Illinois., but instead of “Daily lane closures due to zombies,” this traffic sign reads, “Daily lane closers due to zombies.” The evidence here is overwhelming.The pranksters this time were actually zombies!

Here’s the very succinct article.

Either that or the IDOT message board was fiddled with by an IDiOT :P

Think Zombies can spell? I present exhibit A.

Queen of the scorpions

Click the above pic or here or for the article and video.

This brave little Thai woman set a record for living with 5,000 scorpions in a glass room for 33 days and nights. I’m not sure her record is in any danger considering she beat her own record in doing this. No one else has the desire, let alone the nerve.
She claims to have been “bitten” several times, but do scorpions do anything other than sting or pinch? I suppose they bite their food. Mmmmm, Thai food.
