Stranger than Fiction (weird breaking news).


Recommended Posts

Got a news article that is way stranger than fiction? Here is where to post it. 

Check this one out:

Burglary suspect kept stolen brain beneath porch and used it to get high, police say - The Washington Post - www.washingtonpost.com

Now that you mention it, I remember a new-ish channel on Youtube handles stuff like this. It's called Barshens and is basically a collab between internet entertainer/reviewer Stuart Ashen and internet cook Barry Lewis. One of the they do is called 'Sharticles' where they rip apart weird and frankly pathetic news stories from the local papers. I'll post a link to the first one and we'll see if it fits the criteria;

[One F-Bomb; but otherwise all clear.]

Oh gosh...that first article.

I can see the even more saccharine PC remake Magic School Bus now:

 

Magic Poo-Bus.

 

Environmentally-sound and full of $@&@.:P

Admittedly the first episode of this is quite...weak. It's the later ones that get truly bizarre.

Well how do you think it got into the porcine?

 

By very unethical and non-consensual means... kind of like taxes.  Ironically it sounds like government was an apt ecosystem for such a disease to infect. :P

Eh. I'd say it was a shameless move...but it's McDonalds. That goes without saying. Though I suppose it could work to their advantage, if they do what some people in the comments suggested and use that 33K in rent to help the homeless. That IS, after all, what they keep saying they do.

People need to eat and people need jobs. ;) As long as Ronald McDonald does not run around up as Cardinal then it should be fine. (Though I personally think that would be hilarious. XP)

Perhaps, but I'd think almost any other company than McD would have been more suitable.

You got to love the liberal “news....” They are like a suicide cult. It may do a lot of coverups and PR damage control for creeps like Wienstine and donor-pining pal Chuck- “I am proud to know you Harvey” -Schumer, but ultimately they are a problem that takes care of itself.  xD

That link didn't work for me, so I found one that did. Yeah, it -is- a thing.

...students and teachers on the third floor of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School started smelling something odd according to the Baltimore Sun. Bill Heiser, the school’s president, told the paper the stench seemed to be getting stronger and that several people reported difficulty breathing.

What a thing to loose, and what an even more frightening thing to find. At least it did not konk any one in the head, Three Stooges style. 😁

This will be the next cause-celeb on Tumbler guys. Desegregation for disenfranchised Emus.😝
