TGBDS: Epic Randomness

Recommended Posts

New McD's look-alike advert in Japan, apparently (could be fake news, of course). According to the source "the adverts aren’t actually anything to do with McDonalds, but in actual fact is a an advertisement for Yotteba, a popular Japanese food chain with 32 venues across country.

The Japanese writing is translated in English: “Of course, we serve them in Yotteba’s original container”.

And now for something a bit different...

 

"For well over a year, two mysteries consumed a peaceful New Jersey community. There were the strange letters that showed up in the mailboxes of local barns, asking about the possibility of forming a “sexual relationship” with horses, cows or other large animals. And then, there were the homemade tire-slashing devices that farmers kept finding in their driveways, or near the entrances to rural farm roads.

 

Now, authorities in Sussex County, N.J., are saying that both were the work of the same man, Richard Decker, who lashed out by harassing people who refused to let him have sex with their farm animals.

 

The 31-year-old was arrested Oct. 3, according to the New Jersey Herald. Prosecutors said at a Wednesday detention hearing that since August 2018, he had been sending letters and emails detailing his request to farms, stables and horse boarding facilities throughout Sussex County, located in the northernmost point of the state. Unsurprisingly, many of the recipients were not thrilled to learn than an adult man was interested in having a sexual relationship with their livestock..."

You are quite correct. How stupid of me.

 

Normally see them plummeting out of the sky vertically not taking off horizontally.

Froze my ass off today even in full foul gear. Nor'easter with 35 mph winds and rain blowing down the arm w/ temps in high 30s (damned mid-Atlantic hurricane system is drawing down polar air plus the same system that was out west a few days ago). Pulled 8 boats but was slow going due to conditions. About 1 hour/lift. I was lift #7.

 

Came home, got under 2 blankets and sat back in my recliner. Woke up an hour ago. 

 

Anyway, boat is out of the water for the season. Still some winterizing to do but forecast looks a lot warmer in a few days.

 

Sad.

ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?
___________________________________________
ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?
____________________________________

ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?

____________________________________________
ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?

ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
WITNESS: No..
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?

Someone in the hotel I'm staying in has a duck in their room. I can hear it quacking nearby. Don't think it's a kid's toy, either. Perhaps it's an emotional support duck.

For those of you who drink Widmer, I'm sorry that you're now drinking Bud.

 

Anheuser-Busch bought out Portland’s pioneering Craft Brew Alliance for $220 million Monday, three months after the macrobrewer rejected a much pricier deal. The transaction cements Anheuser-Busch’s ownership of the Portland company that makes Widmer...
