The Daily Word in Mouth-Breathers, Ghost Thieves and Goat Yoga
A Chinese artist, Lu Pingyuan, claims he stole a ghost from an English pub after the ghost agreed to be a piece of art and go on tour. The pub owner is not so happy with this arrangement and is asking the artist to return the ghost immediately.
A Trump supporter warns that if we let the Big Man lose the race, there could be "taco trucks on every corner." That actually sounds pretty awesome.
Stop. You had me at "yoga with goats." I'm moving to Oregon.
The very first confirmed case of identical twin puppies has happened. They're Irish wolfhounds, known to rate somewhere around 8.6 on the Cute-o-meter, and threaten to rend the very fabric of existence with their sweetness.
Here's another animal first: A mouth-breathing dolphin was discovered in New Zealand. Marine biologists aren't sure how or why the little bugger is doing it, but until now it was believed to be impossible.
Experience virtual terror with Björk Digital, a virtual reality exhibition that lets the audience experience a one-on-one concert with Björk. I don't know if my heart could handle such a fright.

The Daily Word in stealthy seahorses, unpardoned turkeys and human-like baby goats
The weather is getting wintry and some ABQ kids need help staying warm. Here's where you can donate a coat.
A 14-year old kid was banned from Coronado mall for being punched in the head and called a fag. And then his attacker posted a video of the incident to youtube.
The NSA is watching you masturbate.
President Obama is preparing to pardon a turkey, as presidents have done since 1989.
And since the turkey gets pardoned, it's reasonable to ask: What do they eat at a White House Thanksgiving? Why, another turkey, of course. A very bad turkey who doesn't have a cute name like "Popcorn" and therefore doesn't deserve a pardon, I assume.
You can add this to your repertoire of animal-based similes: "As stealthy as a seahorse."
And finally, my favorite headline of the day: Confusion in Ekiti town as goat delivers human-like baby goat!
The Daily Word in Michele Bachmann, eagerly murderous beavers and crazy, crazy goats
The seemingly-mythical Downtown grocery store may soon be one step closer to becoming a part of our reality.
Here's a guy who decided that drunk driving wasn't dangerous enough.
The New Mexico Mind Research Institute is scanning prisoners' brains to try and predict whether they will re-offend. We can only assume that this will result in a future super-villain's origin story.
Tea Party fave and all around crazy/evil person Michele Bachmann won't be seeking congressional re-election. So sorry to see her go.
Hard-working, industrious beaver industriously murders man.
A goat went crazy, goat style.
Dish Jockey: Eating our way through the Duke City, one dish at a time
The Alibi is launching a terrific new food column in this issue. The idea behind Dish Jockey is to illuminate Albuquerque’s culinary underbelly, exploring some of the more unusual cuisines and dishes to be found here. Each micro-review highlights just one specialty of the house—a dish so singular, it deserves to have a whole column to itself. We’re starting things off with two helpings of exotic soups— Talking Drums’ African goat pepper stew and Arirang’s Korean soon tofu. Have a suggestion for a for another Dish Jockey fixation? Post a comment here or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
At a conference in Las Vegas, Nev., a few weeks ago, I snuck off to the city’s fabulous Chinatown at every opportunity. Intrigued by all the “tofu houses” I saw, I assumed there were a lot of vegetarians in town. But no, the presence of tofu does not mean the absence of meat. Soon tofu (also spelled soon dubu) is a spicy Korean soup loaded with curdles of extra-silky tofu and meat—and often a raw egg that quickly cooks in the steaming bowl.
A heady taste of Africa awaits in Santa Fe
Ahmed Obo, the owner/chef at Jambo Café in Santa Fe, was born on the island of Lamu off the coast of Kenya. There, he grew up among the culinary traditions of Africa, Arabia and India. The food at Jambo reflects the Lamu style of culinary fusion. It’s designed to be interesting and different but doesn’t attempt to force anyone too far from their comfort zone. The ingredients, including a host of local meats and veggies, is priced unusually low for a restaurant dealing in clean, local food.
