And You Thought Driving While Text Messaging Was Dangerous

Odd story in today's paper about an accident in Somerset County:

Clark Fish was driving Sunday evening on Kuhntown Road in Jefferson Township, Somerset County, when, he told police, he "accidentally shot his hand with a .357 revolver," troopers said.
-Pittsburgh Post Gazette

Assuming he bought his car at one of the many fine Baierl Automotive showrooms in the Pittsburgh area, could we say that this story was like shooting Fish in a Baierl?


Screw you, then. Maybe I'll just get back to work, if this is how you're gonna be.

Whatcha Gonna Do

In case you were wondering if Hulkamania is still running wild all over you, the answer is yes. Yes, it is. Apparently Hulk Hogan is the spokesman for something called "The National Wave", the idea for which was born in Freedom, PA:

"The goal of the National Wave is to have Americans across the country wave a “Uniting Towel of America” at the same time for 15 minutes at 9 p.m. ET on July 4, 2008."

Interesting. It may sound TERRIBLE to say, but I feel like I've seen this TOWEL idea somewhere before. If only I could remember where. Memory loss is an awful thing, but it's something I guess I have to COPE with.

Also, we're supposed to wave it for 15 minutes? Straight? Can we take a break? I mean, I'm pretty sure people's arms are gonna get tired. Let's be honest: not everybody has pythons like Hulk and me*. Plus, 9:00 is when my Golden Girls reruns come on and if I miss the first 15 minutes, I just can't catch up.

*Admission to the Gun Show is $5.00 and available through your local Ticketmaster outlet. You'll have to buy the whole seat, but you'll only need the edge.
