A few months ago I posted "a few clowns in the news".
Well what was I thinking?
I was wrong. There are more than a few clowns in the news.
First, from one of my favorite locations for strange news - Wisconsin.
Wisconsin has lovely forests and maybe some of them are still WILD. But while enjoying the outdoors in Wisconsin I've never given getting hit by a blow dart a second thought.
I should have!

Wisconsin police allege a 41 year old woman drove around town shooting blow gun darts at pedestrians. Police say the woman told them she did this because she just wanted to hear people say "Ouch...". Five people were hit. Damn cheesehead terrorists.
Next on to Chicago and Playboy's headquarters -
3D glasses bring new life to Playboy's centerfold.
"Dear, why do have those strange glasses on?"
"Oh, just helps me read the articles."
Wait, wait, wait - what exactly is popping off the page here? You do know they are 3D in the REAL world. Well actually they may appear larger than real on the page.
I got a kick out of this story on Playboy's latest plans. Here's a great quote:
"This particular picture is one example of how books and magazines are different (than computer images)," he said. "You can hold it in your hands, save them, and as Dad used to, put them under the mattress."
Remember they already tried Marge Simpson as a centerfold last fall. I guess a 3D avatar Na'vi native would be too cost prohibitive given the movie connection. But just think - sales of a Na'vi princess packing a blow gun would sell great in some parts of Wisconsin. Maybe next month?
