Crazy Stuff

So - this guy changes his name to "They" - just They. Apparently Andrew Wilson wasn't working for him. Here is some other stuff that was in the article:

"They said he did it for humor to address the common reference to "they."
"'They do this,' or 'They're to blame for that.' Who is this 'they' everyone talks about? 'They' accomplish such great things. Somebody had to take responsibility," he said.
Now, his friends are getting used to his new name.
"They call up and say, 'Is They there?'"
He acknowledged the name could drive grammarians crazy.
"Not only is he making a statement about his name, but he's messing with the entire English language," friend Craig Erickson said. "

And I guess you can be drunk on a horse and not get a DUI:

PITTSBURGH - The state Supreme Court ruled that Pennsylvania's drunken driving law can't be enforced against people on horseback, a decision that inspired the dissenting justice to wax poetic.

This must have been one ugly ass woman:

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - A Malaysian man shot and killed his wife after he mistook her for a monkey picking fruit in a tree behind their house, the New Straits Times said on Wednesday


Ok - this settles it. Church can kill. Now I am really not going back.

ROME (Reuters) - A 67-year-old woman was killed when a three-meter tall metal crucifix fell on her head in a small southern Italian town on Wednesday, police said.

This is just plain funny. Can you imagine how many couples would be in court if the judge had sided with the husband in this case:

MADRID (Reuters) - A Spanish man tried to have his wife charged with domestic abuse because she refused to have sex with him on five consecutive days, Spanish newspaper El Sur reported on Friday.

How could she really be a "speaker" of this language if everyone else was dead and she had no one to speak it with?

BEIJING (AFP) - The last native speaker of a 400-year-old language used exclusively by women in China has died, state media reported.

Actually - not Jewish. Local Jewish Ass is an anagram.

But I am a recovering Catholic - just trying to figure out religion in my life now.
