Weird Wonders

Taming of the Ostrich

By Rini Grammer [ Wed Nov 16 2016 3:00 PM ]

A few years ago I was walking around my neighborhood, minding my own business. Two men whom I had never seen before approached me, speaking a strange language.

“Who are they? What do they want? Are they a threat?” I wondered silently and watched them from the corner of my eye.

The one closer to me held a stick by his face and it began to make noise. I was in shock.

“What is this? Witchcraft?” I reeled. Then it became pleasant. I lost myself in the whistling. I began to dance in a way I never had before. I was mystified. It was like my consciousness had been taken over by a higher power.

I regained my footing and left as the man nearest to me shouted something in a pleasant tone.

I will never forget that day.

The Daily Word

Another cyclist was hit and killed by an Albuquerque driver.

I want a baby dragon.

Have you tried any Instagram diets?

Would you rather...” with The Lonely Island. (Yes. Yes, everything with The Lonely Island)

Hey! Can we play trade-sies real quick? I have a gun, you have some heroin so why not, ya know?

German Government officials decided they actually did commit genocide. HUH.
