...you should definitely invite this guy.

Key Quote Indicating a High Level of Cluelessness on Someone's Part: Supt Hopkins said the man had not offered an explanation as to why he had attached the fire crackers to his head.

Hey, at least he was wearing a bike helmet. Not much else, but he had some concept of safety.

Maybe he was just practicing for the Zombie Parade.

There's a man who's going to go out with a bang.

Self-lobotomy gone wrong?

road train?

I'm with crossgirl, what in the name of screaming Jesus is a road train?

I just LMAO, co-workers looking at me funny... wonder if alcohol was involved?

I was thinking a trolley?

Shoddy journalism -- no mention of whether or not alcohol was involved!

And, from Wikipedia:

"A road train or roadtrain is a trucking concept used in remote areas of Australia, the United States, and Western Canada to move bulky loads efficiently. The term "road train" is most often used in Australia. In the U.S. and Canada the terms "triples," "Turnpike doubles" and "Rocky Mountain doubles" are commonly used for longer combination vehicles (LCVs). A road train consists of a relatively conventional tractor unit, but instead of pulling one trailer or semi-trailer, the road train pulls two or more of them."

Well, it's obvious really, no explanation required . . .

I'm willing to bet beer was the best explaination. Beer and a bet.

So a train with only one car must be a track truck?

Better than road kill. No?

Reading the paper on a slow Monday
Regretting last night's Danish Zombie
I saw a nude man, he made me nervous
I curled up and regretted my breakfast
And he said,

"I come from the land down under!
Light my helmet and hear me thunder!
Look upon me in fear and wonder!
You'd better run, better take cover!"

*WAVES @ Hammie!!!*

and a *snork*

*Waves @ Siouxie!!!

Key comment: what's the world coming to if you can't let off some steam from time to time?

Flickr is filtered at work, so I hope this works...

This guy's calendar is broken. He was just trying to celebrate Chinese New Year.

*ding, ding, ding goes the road truck...*

nope. doesn't work.

train! train! i meant road train. which also, does not work.

Wow, all this stuff coming out of Australia...

Siouxie wants to know if he's single.

Layzee, you know me so well. I love a man that cracks me and himself up.

HORK @Snammie... Oh, I mean SNORK @ Hammie...

He's single. The road train's double.
*waves @ Hammie!*

He was doing fine until one of the firecrackers hit a flying sheep. Two-baas. Too baaaad.


R.I.P Tony Hillerman. I sure will miss Lt. Leephorn and Sgt. Jim Chee.


*Waves @ Annie!!!*

When you first look at that headline, it brings to mind a man running naked down the street while somehow launching crispy, wafer-like snacks from his head...

also OT (but not as sad)
Simon LeBon of Duran Duran turns 50 today...

Awake in the nighttime
Got to go pee
Prostate exams
and colonoscopy!

So now I'm a geezer
When I used to be taut
Feet like a freezer
Socks are for naught

chorus: I don't wear Depends
I have to grunt to see my shoes
Don't know how to text or whatever comes next
And I'm grumpy like the coot!

Hair's turning gray
from my 401(k)
I have to grunt to see my shoes
If you give me a call, my phone's on the wall
And I'm grumpy like the coot!

Loads of fine women,
I sought and I chased
Taking v***** now would be really a waste!

Now when I see models
Mostly super- (of course)
At them 'Get some clothes on!'
I yell till I'm hoarse.

(repeat chorus)

end OT

*lights cell phone for insom. Drops cell phone in loo*

Penguin--I read it that way too.

Near-nude man runs down street firing crackers from head
I read it as our CEO laying off white people from the comfort of the bathroom on his yacht.
