Why do I find this amusing?


It's actually rather tragic. While I in no way condone domestic violence of any sort, and I realize that sobriety is very difficult to maintain for an addict, the visualization of this guy doing what he's been accused of doing, all while naked to the world, brings a smile to my wrinkled, craggy old visage... An excerpt:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A convicted felon who became a motivational speaker -- and used his life experiences to warn teens about the dangers of drugs and crime -- is accused of going on a bender, threatening to kill his girlfriend and her son, and smashing a former prison buddy in the face with a statue of John Wayne.

Hey. It's the Midwest. Shit happens. In even stupider news, some poor schlub in Chi-town (not my town) was busted doing something which appears highly illicit in a Google Earth shot:
And don't even think about trying to find it directly at Google Maps, because the notoriety of this entire mess has led to the image being removed. (That, or somebody threatened to bash in some heads over the unwanted publicity). It has caused me to think twice whenever I'm at say, a grocery store, or someplace in public, and have to scratch or adjust an undergarment. You really never do know who's watching, and worst of all, you could end up on some heinous blog that shows you 'keeping it real.'

Is nothing sacred? Obviously not. Big ups to Gadling for allowing me to rip off/link to this story.

Gotta run now...
