I don’t like Mondays (repeat)

Yesterday thanks to the wonders of social media I learned about the concept of “Blue Monday.” Apparently yesterday (and I’ll admit I’m fuzzy on the details – is it Jan 17 or MLK day specifically/the 3rd Monday in January?) was supposed to be the most depressing day of the year.

I don’t recall feeling particularly depressed yesterday but just in case anyone needs a pick-me-up, here are some current events that may bring a smile to your face.

Woman recreates da Vinci's 'Last Supper' with lint
If you can overlook the dementedness of spending so much time on this pursuit and buying towels in specific colors just to get the right shade of lint for Judas, it’s actually not a bad rendition of a painting. In dryer lint.

Naked tourist, self-proclaimed ‘King of the World’ arrested
You know, I think we’ve all been there at one time or another. The Florida Keys, I mean.

Monk nabbed with nun's skeleton at airport
This story honestly left me wanting more. I thought the dude would be a serial killer caught with a body that he tried to pass off as some religious thing. Turns out it is a suspected scam … which is intriguing in its own right, but I don’t know. Ending was disappointing. But just for funsies, this one did not take place on Florida.

The ending of this last story, however, will not disappoint. But you have to promise to read the last line:

His loins still burn for her
Florida man sticking with girlfriend even after she torches. His crotch. With gasoline. The dating scene is ugly.


  1. Don't be depressed! Maybe the firecrotch couple will get some counseling.
