I always wondered how my parents managed to visit every child in the world each Christmas Eve to give them presents too.

He's more of a convenient lie, like God or Social Security. Except that you actually get to meet Santa.

Substitute, right? I'm guessing the original teacher was on suspension for merely suggesting that the easter bunny brings chocolate eggs not lays them, that blasphemous bastard.

Locally the gas station where I go almost every day was the scene of a murder recently. Some poor woman got shot when she was misidentified by someone with a grudge against someone else. Ya can try your best to stay away from people but could still just happen to look like someone else and get shot buying a slushie.

See this is the great thing about the internet. Nobody has gotten shot sitting behind a computer screen. Now checking the door after being behind the screen of the computer. That's a different matter.

Praise Jesus, especially when it's sunny outside because Jesus would totally be cool with you praising while you get a nice tan.

Provocations on the Estonia-Latvia border

Translation:
At 13:37 on Thursday Ivars Graudinš, a Latvian citizen from Limbaži, posted a video on social media in which an excavator is used to transfer soil from Estonia to the territory of Latvia. The video is titled International scandal - Latvians taking back land from the Estonians. "This is for the island of Ruhnu, you devils!" the man can be heard saying in the video.

Spoiler: show
This made my day. :lol:

Why do I imagine that Eastern Europe has the European response to the North American Hillbilly?

Because, I can't help but imagine that the response to that would be, "He tuk mah dert!"

That would be Southeastern Europe, better known as the Balkans.

Beto O'Rourke and Ted Cruz have apparently both grown beards. It's been for either a senator or a presidential candidate to have a beard for over a century, but maybe that's changing.

I think Beto looks kind of like Mac from Always Sunny

And Zodiac looks about 20% more human

Hagerstown woman's house struck by a bullet Thursday morning.

That's not a big deal. That can happen anywhere. Well two homes were hit that morning, not sure if it's related, whatever that's not the reason I posted the link. This same woman was involved in a minor accident while trying to avoid a major accident on the highway last week. She and another driver collided while getting out of the way of a sliding semi truck. At a place on I-70 where traffic slows often (because people try to limp onto the highway going 30 mph after merging when the speed limit is 70) a tractor trailer was not able to slow quickly enough and slammed into a bridge, catching fire and killing the driver.

If anyone is penning a Final Destination re-reboot I think they need to talk to this lady.

Wow. Ted Cruz is pretty much the last man I would've expected to grow a beard.

Well he has to throw people off his trail; I don't think the Zodiac killer has a beard in any of the police sketches.

JamishT was a heck of a guy,
With a devilish twinkle in his eye.
With his hand-picked flowers,
And his feel-good powers,
He made all the girls blush and sigh.
