A South Korean mayor who dumped a tonne of trash on a clean beach to give environmental campaigners something to pick up has said sorry for his deception.

When I was a Cub Scout, we had a boy in our troop who was always causing trouble. We had our meeting at a family's house where there was a farm pond with a dock extending out into the deeper water. The troublemaker, unprovoked, pushed another scout off the dock, looked around, then jumped in and pulled him out. When the scoutmaster asked why he had done it, he said,"Jordan said he couldn't swim, and I thought I could get my life-saving badge."

Everyone had lots of funne despite the deceptionne.

Mayor Dong is pretty cocky.

Major T.J. Kong in Dr. Strangelove had this covered:

---"I've been to one world fair, a picnic and a rodeo and this is the stupidest thing I ever heard."

He was just trying to make the environmental crusaders feel needed.

Stix, that's the type of kid who drives adults to drink.

Rod, you hit the nail on the head. That's what I tell myself every day I come home from work to find both sinks full of dirty dishes waiting for me to put in the dishwasher or hand wash - my cavemen know how to make me feel like a maid needed.

MOTW, I'm the caveman AND the maid, so I'm at war with myself a lot. "Get off your lazy butt and wash those clothes!" "Later, after the football game." "No, right now, because you won't do it later." Then I hit the pause button and head for the washing machine.

Well, this does provide some good food for thought as I think about our next yard cleanup day at the church.

Reminds of the Modern Family episode where Luke received a medal for putting out a fire he started. He said if they gave medals for starting fires, he would have received one for that too.
