The Daily Word in Churks, Forward Thinking and Real Money

The Daily Word

Delta Airlines is showing an edited version of the film Carol, where all of the lesbian kissing scenes have been removed. Ironic, considering the film depicts life among the backward, closed minds of the 50's. Progress.

Meet the "churk," a real-life government genetic engineering experiment in 1960 that resulted in a chicken-turkey hybrid. This monster was mentally retarded, physically deformed and grew twisted feathers. Science.

Irish police chased down a UFO and pulled it over. Turns out the whole thing was a publicity stunt (false flag operation) that the cops were in on (conspiracy)to promote a children's art festival (Illuminati indoctrination camp). Confirmed.

Two completely different women in Ghana are accused of being reckless witches. Reckless, because they both apparently crash landed while flying. One was in the form of a bird (allegedly) until she smashed into a woman's house and turned back into a human. The other was flying somewhere (allegedly) when she felt an "electric shock" that made her fall from the sky. According to the article: "There have, however, been suggestions that the woman might have been suffering from mental problems." Understatement.

A Florida judge said during a ruling that Bitcoin isn't real money. I can't tell if this is good or bad. Uncertainty.

FBI Director James Comey gave an address to the American Bar Association annual conference and told everyone the awful news: The FBI has a ton of trouble breaking into people's phones. And unfortunately, government agencies have no recourse. That means it's up to us—the little people—to make it possible for them to spy on us. Cooperation.

But Annan has kept a secret from his U.S. fans: He is also a master guitarist whose music—as unassuming as it is mesmerizing—draws on the West African highlife and palm wine styles.
