Imponderable #103: Arkansas

2 Aug

August 2, 2013

I want to apologize beforehand. This is another testicle story. Between this and the guy with the 140 pound testicles I really don’t want this site to become Testicle Central. I really need to rethink the Imponderable. Last week’s goofy ghost story is more in line with what I prefer. However, that said, the essence of an Imponderable is that (among other things) it is unbelievable. This story I find very, very hard to believe. We have A- a man who is paralyzed from the waist down and B- his dog. And in the fact that C- he sleeps in the nude and the fact that D- the dog was hungry and you may know where this is going.


I may need to rethink, not just The Imponderable, but my whole life if this is the sort of story I am going to post. I have a headache right now.

But I am not as bad off as that guy in the story.

One quick note. This story has been edited by The Daily News since it originally appeared. The comments section was full of readers complaining that, as it was first published, the story read “the dog was in fact eating his ball” instead of “his gonad.”

I have a lot of other problems with this story.

PS: I will not be at all surprised if this is just an urban legend. Somebody check Snopes.

Some Things Never Go Out Of Style (Archives a6 and a7)

Some things never go out of style. for example, Star Trek. This Antiquity from the Archives concerns Star Trek: The Next Generation. And that’s good, since that is a classic program.

However, there are some things that never go away that you just wish would shut up and get out of your face, like the Clintons. Will we never be done with Bill and Hilary Clinton???? Yet that is what this Antiquity  concerns as well.

Bill Clinton and Star Trek. You could put this post in a time warp and even in the 41st century they’d know Bill Clinton and Star Trek.

Trek 2

This juror on The Little Rock Whitewater trial came from Brooklyn, I am sorry to admit.

She wore a Star Trek uniform, complete with toy phaser and tricorder, to sit on a jury. “I stand for Star Trek’s ideals.”

At least Star Wars fans only call themselves Jedi, they don’t usually dress like one. But as I’ve said before, Trek fans are nuts. They learn to speak Klingon, a fictional tv language. They walk around in Trek costumes in broad daylight. And they claim wearing a Starfleet uniform to formal occasions “is appropriate.”

Note to Barbara Adams: It is not.
