Sunday Sillies

* Is _that_ the way the girls are in Texas? According the _Houston Press,_ via “Wonkette,”:http://www.wonkette.com/politics/shelley-sekula+gibbs/pretend-rep-clearly-beloved-by-constituency-216976.php a Republican woman running for Tom deLay’s old seat had to do so through a write-in campaign. Unfortunate, since her name was the less than memorable “Shelley Sekula-Gibbs”, many voters mis-spelled it and the Fort Bend County election office had to decide which of these was valid. You get a flavour, I think, of Texas politics when you learn that one of the votes counted in her favour was actually spelled “Shelly DraculaCunt Gibs”.
* The Swedish edition of Wikipaedia “claims”:http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fäbod that there used to be a law forbidding men to be stay alone with cows and goats, lest they be tempted to bestiality, a crime which was until 1864 punishable by death.
* this “reference to an experiment”:http://acephalous.typepad.com/acephalous/2006/11/measuring_the_s.html by Scott Eric Kaufman should screw up his results by offering evidence of transmisison backwards in time.

  1. I’d put down my teacup before reading this. That was fortunate.
