Talk About It Tuesday – People Are Whacked

Welcome to another edition of Talk About It Tuesday.  Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day last week. The weather is getting warmer here on the East Coast.  I’m not sure if that is good or bad, but I am enjoying it.

Last week we talked about an adorable penguin named Roast Beef and a dude who slathered his naked self in chocolate and peanut butter.  As a writer, it is important for me to observe human behavior. I am sure all my writer friends would agree. That’s why I get a kick out of these stories.

Truth really is stranger than fiction.

In Leechburg, Pennsylvania, 23 year-old Timothy Beer was reading the newspaper (people still do that?) and came across an article about a man robbing a Chinese restaurant. After reading about the robbery, he went to the police station and confessed to the crime!  The man claims his other personality committed the crime. It wasn’t me, it was the other me!

Well, I guess you’re free to go then!

So you say you’ve got nothing going on in your life?   Well try this: 6-foot 4, 300 pounds of man walked into a Downingtown, PA Wal-Mart wearing nothing but a pair of socks. The funniest part of the article: The video also shows shoppers avoiding Taylor. Um, I don’t know about you, but if I spot a big naked guy walking around a store, guess what… I am not introducing myself.

In Portland, Oregon, a woman was spotted in the front seat of a car naked and bound with duct tape.  Valentine’s Day is a day for lovers and the like to express their feelings and sentiment.  Nothing says I love you like playing  S & M games in your car (in public).  A stunt like this is also a stark reminder of those we’d like to stay out of the gene pool.  Of course good U.S. citizens reported this to the police.  Of course it was all a misunderstanding.

I am so glad there are so many whackos in the world. It makes it so much more interesting!  Have you read any crazy stories lately?  Enjoy the rest of your week and be sure to drop by Thursday for The Walking Dead Chow Down.

Toodles!

  6. I haven’t read anything off the wall lately, but I’ve been in my own cave editing…lol. And after reading what you’ve read, I’ll gladly stay in my own little world for now. I’m a people watcher, but even some of that is too much for me.

What's on your mind?
