  1. I saw an article splashed messily all over the front of some newspaper about the “TREE MURDERER”

    Um, can anyone say “macmillan bloedel”

  2. The mouse story sounds like so many varations of the cruelty to animals with comeuppance to the human perp. “Guys tie dynamite to jackrabbit it runs under their car”. These and other appear in things like Darwin awards all the time.

  3. Crazy stuff, man… That first item is so typical. When are we all going to figure out that the people who most vocally oppose behaviors/attitudes/etc are most often the ones secretly indulging those things?! It drives me nuts, especially living in the Southern U.S.
