By now, we’re sure that all of you have heard the news regarding birds falling out of the sky like a wet dream from Hitchcock. Some have suggested that it was lightning at hand. Some have directed their speculation towards a loud and potentially traumatic event, such as fireworks. A few have even suggested a biological weapon or experiment being tested on a hapless group of avian warriors.
But no one suggests the UFO? Nobody? Really? Does nobody want to shake the tentacle of that fine alien?
Yang Youde is in a desperate struggle against property developers that want to take his farm. These must be Gorn property developers because Yang is using an improvised cannon made from a wheelbarrow and pipes to drive them off.
Fireworks were seen all over this fine country over the weekend. As we are told, the U.S. celebrated its Independence Day. And if you care, Canada celebrated their existence last week, too. (Seriously? You’re still part of the British Empire, what do you have to celebrate?)
But fireworks aren’t always a good thing, especially if you live in Congo. There, in the city of Goma, a fireworks display intended to celebrate peace that began in January made the civil war-weary city dive for cover, thinking the war had started up again. People went diving for cover upon hearing the explosions going off.
Everyone, let’s agree not to play with bubble wrap around Congo for a while, sound good?
