Man... It must be the summer doldrums or whatnots, but it certainly is a slow news day. Even Editor Joe has been reduced to writing about circus peanuts in order to, you know, stay current and stuff.
I'll blame the heat. It makes people do funny things. Kind of like this guy: AOL News - Man Accused of Biting Off Pet Rooster's Head
Yes, I can think of no other way to teach your unruly rooster a lesson than by chomping off its head because he was hassling your pet pigeons. I wonder how the pigeons feel about capital punishment.
And then there's this guy whose story I nicked from Editor Jeff's journal: ARTICLE: Police arrest naked man after he flails car with a stolen pigeon.
I'm thinking those two should share a cell together. They could have tons to talk about.
Finally, to prove that not all heat-stroked minds are bent on destroying the poultry population, and that there is actually some good to come of this blistering, brain-baking heatwave, here's a story about an Evangelical pastor who's in a heap of trouble for actually trying to teach what Jesus taught: AOL News - Disowning Conservative Politics Is Costly for Pastor. I'm thinking we need to get a betting pool going on how long it's going to take Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson to issue an Evangelical fatwa.
Anyway, I hope you're all staying cool in this heat. Did everyone have a wild weekend?
