This just in: Russians are still zany.

Vincent Van Gogh

Everyone knows that too much drinking can cause Christmas parties to go wrong. But few can have imagined the bloody outcome of a recent festive drinking binge in Siberia.

Police in the remote region said on Friday that they are struggling to work out whether self mutilation constitutes a crime after two men cut their own ears off in an arm wrestling match.

 

How much vodka would you need to cut your own ear off?  A whole bottle?  Two?  I mean OK guy has a gun to my wifes head and it’s cut my ear off or she dies where’s the knife?  But to lose a bet and then say “Oh shucks, I lost let me cut my ears off?”  Seriously Russians are freaking zany.  Full story here.

Dennis Rodman just went off the deep end right?!?

Is Charles Smith running for office?  I don’t know him or his politics but he seems like a guy who could do some good for people.  On the flip side Dennis Rodman seems like he’s gone off the cliff on live TV right?  What drug(s) was he on here?  Is Chris Cuomo serious?  Does he really think Kenneth Bay wants Dennis Rodman speaking on his behalf?  Why?  So he can get fed to the dogs like Kim Jong Un’s uncle?  Best TV CNN’s produced in YEARS.  Unintentional comedy to the nth degree.

The science is settled, God LOVES Tim Tebow!

 

 

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Question his quarterbacking skills all you want. But when it comes to college football, Tim Tebow knows his stuff.

The former Heisman Trophy winner came within a point of predicting the final score of Monday’s thrilling BCS National Championship Game during his television debut for ESPN.

“Auburn might be a team of destiny, but tonight, Florida State is deeper from top to bottom,” Tebow said. “(With) Jameis Winston and Telvin Smith’s leadership in the fourth quarter, I think they win 35-31.”

Rest of the article here.

Freaking Tebow man, nails the score as FSU won 34-31.  He must have a direct line to the big man upstairs.  I don’t know about you guys but if you’re the type who likes to call a bookie for NFL games I’d be watching ESPN this weekend to see what knowledge Tebow’s dropping for the masses on the world-wide leader.  It’s a shame he throws worse than Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite otherwise he might still be in the NFL.

Busy Thursday?!?!

Friend of the blog and author Donna Lethal is making her triumphant return to Lowell this week for a limited visit before heading back home to Los Angeles.  Thursday night at 7pm at Zeitgeist she’ll be doing a reading from her book “Milk of Amensia” which is all about growing up back in the 70’s and 80’s in the Mill City.
