The Squirrel's Nut Cache - 3/11/2010

The Nut Cache - a collection of recent things I found interesting, or amusing, or nutworthy.

What is it about McDonald's? Is it something in the food, or just the clientèle they attract? One The Nut Cache contained a story about a woman calling 911 because the McDonald's she visited was out of McNuggets. Now, from Loveland Colorado, we have a story about a an 85-year-old man being beaten up over a parking space. Total Depravity, anyone?

43-year-old giant fish eats 25 goldfish every-other day. Yep, a fish story you can believe in! But, that's not all! I've got another fish story... well... um... a notfish story... Sometimes, fish isn't fish! It seems that a sushi bar in Los Angeles has been busted... for serving whale at $60/plate!

(h.t. to Phil Johnson via Twitter for this one) It isn't safe to shush someone who rudely talks on her cell phone at the movies. Her two male friends may attack you with a meat thermometer. Yes, a meat thermometer! (Notable from the comments section, "Well, thank goodness he didn't get shot, since Californians are so "concerned" about gun ownership. Now the State Legislature can draft a bill banning unregistered meat thermometers in California.")

This is hard to accept, but Chuck Norris turned 70 years old yesterday. Yeah, I know. Me, too. But, guess what? The classic fight scene with Bruce Lee in Meng long guo jiang, was 38 years ago! Happy Birthday, Chuck!

I've been sitting on this one for a while. It seems that animal rights activist are making an effort to force one of my rodential brethren, Punxsutawney Phil, into the unemployment line. Let's face it, there's not many jobs out there for groundhogs, and it just breaks my heart that Phil might lose his job to automation...

Who knew that you could get almost $1000 a piece for two empty glass vials. Well, I think they were most likely empty, but the seller claimed that each vial contained a ghost... yup, you can now buy ghosts, and they don't go cheap. Two "ghosts" just sold at auction for $1,983. Really? Can you say, "Sucker!"? I knew you could...

From one exorcist to another. I seems that the Vatican's Chief Exorcist thinks that the devil is a work in the highest reaches of the Roman Catholic church, including "cardinals who do not believe in Jesus, and bishops who are linked to the Demon". I imagine Huss, Luther, Ridley, Lattimer, and many others would agree...

That's all the nuts I've scrounged for this week. Until next time!
