So what does a zombie, a skinhead and the Hulk have in common? They’re all in the news. Heehee… a hodge-podge of a weird current news.
‘Zombie attacks’ spread through the Deep South in Florida and Louisiana
Just two weeks after the infamous face-eating attack on the MacArthur Causeway, a Miami man believed under the influence of “Cloud 9″ — a substance police indicated is a form of bath salts — reportedly growled at arresting officers, yelled “I’m going to eat you,” and tried to bite them.
Then we go to Louisiana. Officers had to track down a suspect who had bitten a “chunk” out of someone’s face in Louisiana while “under the influence of some kind of drug.”
What is going on in the south? Drinking too much swamp water?
Oh, btw… if you are a fan of zombies, check out the photos of a zombie parade in my post just before Halloween last year, “Photos: It’s a Zombie Apocalypse! Why ARE zombies so popular?” The makeup is phenomenal!
Skinhead candidate gets just one vote and wins the election
Scary, huh. I find this more frightening than the Zombie Apocalypse.
Republican leaders have a mess on their hands in Pittston, Pennsylvania, where a man with “longstanding ties to white supremacist groups,” as the Associated Press puts it, elected himself to a low-level, local post. How’d he do it? He won the April election with just a single write-in vote, which he cast for himself. The Southern Poverty Law Center is now drawing attention to the case, saying that Steve Smith — who now holds a four-year committee post repping Pittston’s Fourth Ward — is linked to “an extraordinary array of white nationalist, skinhead, and neo-Nazi groups.” Party leaders say there’s nothing they can do, with Luzerne County chief adding that the only grounds for qualification is two years as a registered Republican, which Smith has.
The GOP “does not endorse or represent any of the hateful views of Mr. Smith, nor did any of the voters in Pittston City or Luzerne County,” Luzerne County Republican Party chief Terry Casey said in a statement.
And let’s wrap this up with someone who is not the sharpest knife in the drawer….
Man paints himself green like the Hulk – but used the wrong paint
Paolo Henrique dos Santos was hoping to look like the Incredible Hulk for just a few hours, but the Brazilian pool attendant’s new identity lasted a lot longer thanks to the industrial-strength paint he used to cover his body. While the paint was the perfect shade of green and accentuated his muscle tone nicely, it happens to be designed to coat ballistic missiles and nuclear submarines — not human skin. It took 24 hours for the superhero and a crew of (now) intimate friends and family to scrub off the “incredible” green substance.
