I can’t say I’ve ever imagined having a reason to thank the hacker group Anonymous. That is, until five minutes ago when I read they had hacked the Westboro Baptist Church’s Facebook page. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Insert another THANK YOU just for good measure.
Not familiar with Westboro? Let me fill you in…these are the bullies who masquerade as Baptists and protest the funerals of fallen soldiers, innocent children, and now the Boston Marathon victims (may they all rest in peace).
Thank you, Anonymous, for taking up a good cause.
The goat that started it all…
2013 might not be a good year for goats.
It seems those crazy Cubs fans are at it again. Nothing quite says “I am a fan in need of hospitalization,” like pulling up to Wrigley Field and hand delivering a severed goat’s head in hopes of breaking a silly curse (the 1945 curse on the team’s future World Series hopes). You read that right: a goat’s head. And this is not the first time it has happened.
While I should probably hesitate to say this (actually, repeat it–as I have been known to mention it on my blog a time or two), I am a Cubs fan. Not a goat-head-delivering Cubs fan…but a Cubs fan nonetheless…and I will tell you: As much as it pains me to say this, there are not enough goats in North America to save the Cubs this year.
I’ve been meaning to write about this for the last couple of days and I just haven’t had a chance…
Earlier this week the Washington Post ran this article about a robbery that was botched because the would-be-robber couldn’t write a legible robbery note. Don’t they test for that in schools these days?
Just ask my dad…by the time I was in the sixth grade, I excelled at writing notes requesting cash.
What is this world coming to?
