Raccoon Wars?

True Story: In Olympia, Washington, raccoons are roving around, terrorizing the town! They've killed ten cats so far, and attack one dog. One woman carries a steel pipe with her when she goes outside...

This reminds me of Pom Poco, the classic cult 'toon that details the raccoon wars with humans! Could this be the beginning of something...stay tuned!

Designer Ice?

Just when you thought that people couldn't be coaxed into buying anything else ridiculous, the word is that "designer ice" will be coming this fall! That's spring water, pre-packaged in ice cube trays that are sealed in plastic. -- Just pop one in your refrigerator for some really superior ice cubes, and all for only $3.99!

I couldn't believe it a few years ago when small bottles of spring water found a ready market for over $1 a bottle...this in spite of the fact that water just as good (or better) can be drawn from your kitchen tap! People running around sipping on their water bottles look like they have an adult pacifier engaged!

Let's anticipate the next hot trendy fad, and be among the first to sell these people bottled air!!!

Buy an iTodd!

Hey folks, can't afford a trendy iPod? Then buy an iTodd! Todd knows thousands of songs, far more than you'd fit on an iPod...and for far less than you'd pay for an iPod, Todd will come over to your house and sing a song that you specify whenever you want! All this for just the price of a meal for him! Just set a place at your table, and call iTodd today!!!

Dig Deeper, Furolks...

Oh oh...BP, the oil producer, announced that they need to shut down about 60 miles of their pipeline to replace it 'cause it's rusty...this means that you and I are soon gonna pay even more at the pumps, say about 8%...this translates to about an additional 10 to 15 cents per gallon. Other goods transported by truck (and most are) can also be expected to go up as costs are passed along. As the guy on the TV commercial says when his microwaved meal bursts into flame, "that's not good!"

Elvis' Teddy Bear

Ouch!--Elvis' teddy bear was chewed up, ironically by a guard dog, in a private collection! Pieces of the teddy bear were strewn all about, together with a good number of other bears in the collection that the dog had gotten ahold of.--Bad dog!--Bad!!! :(

Well, Fidel Castro's gone under the knife for intestinal bleeding. Fidel's held power in Cuba for 47 years! Think of all the U.S. presidents that he's annoyed! One of the last communist dictators, speculations are about as to the true state of Fidel's health. The 80-year-old Cuban leader turned power over to his "younger" brother Raul, who is 75!

Now if Castro died, we'd probably get some great baseball players coming to this country!

Ouch, Mel!

I like Mel Gibson; he's one of my favorite actors, and his "Mad Max" character is one of my heros; who can forget "The Road Warrior?" But I guess it's important to separate characters from the actor portraying them...Mel Gibson was recently pulled over and charged with driving while intoxicated. Rather than express contrition, he used the occasion to spew anti-Jewish sentiments at the arresting officers...this is not cool!

When Mel's arrested next time and told he has the right to remain silent, he better take advantage of it!
