Last Sunday my wife and I went to the local mall looking for a pair of trousers. About ten minutes into our slow zombie shuffle with the other shoppers through glitz-riddled corridors of terror I leaned over and murmured to my wife, sotto voce, ‘Brains…braaaaaiiins…’
Alas, the escape code didn’t work. We had to get the trousers anyway. She Who Must Be Obeyed prefers Nattily Dressed Husband to Slob-o-Scruff Spouse of the Shed. Then we had to brave the parking lot with its endless lines of circling cars. I swear I saw at least three 1957 Plymouth Furies.
I would ask whether there’s anything weirder than these malls. But of course, there is. In the Netherlands, a gentleman transformed his dead cat into an RC helicopter. Don’t laugh, it’s true. Must ask my relatives if it’s flown over Soest.
What’s the weirdest (and funniest) thing you’ve discovered this week?
Coming soon: something not weird at all. A launch and a contest. Watch this space.
