And Now, Some Weirdness

Politicians across the planet are not always destructively weird. Sometimes they are just…weird. Thus the move by the New Zealand government to ban such baby names as  Lucifer, Duke, Messiah and 89. In the first example, the rule-makers have obviously not had a three-foot antichrist living in the same house. In the fourth, one wonders whether other numbers fun afoul of the law as well, like Tootsie or Forsyth.

Then there’s the Loch Ness Monster. Well, not exactly in Loch Ness–it was filmed in Alaska. But it’s real this time! Honest. OK, the picture is fuzzy and looks like…something we’ve never seen before. Ergo, it’s a monster!

And bee-wearing? (Go hang this ribbon on the winner. No! You do it!)

Now, for the beach-goer bored with traditional wet wear, we have the C3PO bathing suit. (Sorry, you’ll have to check the link yourself. Kids might be reading.)

After seeing the above, I was ready for this one. Michele Bachmann is polling well among Presidential contenders. Can’t top that. See you tomorrow.
