Whacked Out Freaks – Part Two

As if this touching episode wasn’t enough, now the Thompson family has put out a request for anyone who owns a cannon. No, I didn’t spell that wrong. We’re talking a real cannon, the type that shoots cannon balls (ala Pirates of the Caribbean). Since you obviously can’t head down the local Walmart to find such things, the family has solicited the media to not only find a cannon but help them find the perfect owner of a cannon. It’s so important apparently, that they have put out the following requirement: Anyone interested needs to submit a 100-word essay and mail it to the Aspen Daily News. They’ll forward the submissions to the Thompson family.

“The winner of the content will have to bring the cannon to Aspen at his or her own expense and possibly on short notice.”


OK, once more with feeling…


It’s A Good Thing

I really don’t like to admit this, but it’s been hard for me to keep up with the daily news coming from Iraq, not to mention Afghanistan. Now that the drama of the Iraqi election is pretty much over, there just hasn’t been a lot of breaking news to catch my attention. Yes, I do realize that there are tens of thousands of families with loved ones serving over there who live each day awaiting news from the area. That’s why I’m grateful for blog sites like this that provide a real service for people. It’s a lot of work pulling together this kind of information, and for that I say, “Thanks Arthur.”

And The Winner Is…

Security Break at Oscar Telecast!

A naked 33-year-old man named Robert Opal streaked briefly into view, flashing a peace sign, as NBC cameras cut away to avoid a full frontal assault on viewers of the Academy Awards* ceremony, broadcast worldwide.

The Los Angeles sex shop owner streaked all the way from one side of the stage to the other just before the best picture award was announced. Opal was clearly viewable behind actor David Niven, who was on stage and ready to introduce Elizabeth Taylor.

“Isn’t it fascinating,” remarked host David Niven, as the naked man disappeared into the wings after streaking across the stage, “to think that probably the only laugh that man will ever get in his life is by stripping off his clothes and showing his shortcomings?”

Some were convinced that the security break was staged. Cynics found Niven’s line too good not to be scripted, and they gained additional ammunition when instead of pressing charges, the Academy put some clothes on the streaker and brought him into the press area.

Producer Jack Haley Jr. denied the interruption was planned.
