Things Guaranteed To Make You Go, Huh?

I was trolling around the ‘tubes trying to figure out something different to post today and I ran across this site: Odd Facts You Never Knew. They have several categories; crazy crimes, insane animals, riddles, misc., etc. The following is part of their Weird Laws section:

Of course we live that way on a daily basis with the neocon cluster-f*ck that’s half-assed running things now, but you get the meaning. Make sure you click on the link above and read the second part of the list, especially the last one. I wonder if that’s an impeachable offense?

  1. I was thinking of the old MAD magazine saying that was part of it’s title when I thought of this post.

    (Things Guaranteed To Drive You Mad!)

  2. LOL! Me thinks you’re ALREADY mad, Dad. Hey, there’s a moniker for ya… MadDad2059! Would that make me the guilty by association?

    I think the New York law that prohibits doing things that are against the law is quite lawful, and it should also be against the law to not obey the law that prohibits doing things against the law, as well…

    What say you?

  3. Avignon, France- It is illegal for a flying saucer to land in the city.

    Dang! Avignon is no place for me to relocate to then.

  4. Me-thinks me poor brain-housing group is quite croggled, thanky very much!
    I like Christopher’s entry about the flying saucer. I can also tell you I’m not surprised.
    Check this out that was on opit’s site this morning:

    Opit always finds good stuff. This article is something that would’ve been considered tinfoil hat a few years ago. The only thing I could think of after reading it is a rubberband being stretched at the opposite ends. Not good.
