The year has been off to a raucous start. Name it and it seems to have already happened. Well, except for the apocalypse. However, many would say that the signs are pointing to such an event. As it is currently heavily raining in New York, I started thinking of all the wacky bits of new the last few weeks.
First off, Florida issued warnings last week to watch out for wind chills, freezing temperatures, and falling iguanas. They are bigger than locusts. Must be a big sign for us all. What it points towards, is anyone’s guess.
Then you have the zoo in Texas that is getting ready for Valentine’s day. The zoo will name a cockroach after your ex and then feed it to a meerkat live on camera. What sweet revenge for some people. At least meerkats are cute, fuzzy, and furry.
Speaking of being furry, a group of people dressed in furry animal costumes helped police do a citizen’s arrest of a man suspected of domestic violence. Good for them to be on the lookout and to step in to help out. It must have been a hoot to have been arrested by someone in such a costume. Makes for a good jail story. Or perhaps not.
Lastly, have you ever seen the landshark Saturday Night Live (SNL) skit? For some reason, I find it hilarious. It’s about a killer landshark knocking on doors. It’s an old skit. Fast forward to present time and four new species of tropical sharks that use their fins to walk are causing a stir in waters off northern Australia and New Guinea. Whoa. SNL was so ahead of its time. Good times ahead. What’s next?
