The Week In Pictures: The 'I Forgot to Post This on Friday' Edition

Random Friday Thoughts

Today is going to suck. I hate this part of my job. Erm...I mean the things I do after blogging, not the part that pays me to post things like the WiP.

Rain is forecast for most of the weekend, which is good since it's been about 12 hours since we last saw a downpour. I was worried that we might be in the midst of a drought.

Anyway, lots to do today, so let's move on to the WiP.

Archaeologists have discovered the earliest known depiction of the human body, which appears to be a headless female with large breasts or, as the artist titled the work, "The Perfect Woman"

HA HA HA...erm...kidding.

Recent satellite photos of earth indicate that, in addition to other woes, global warming seems to have resulted in a bad case of dandruff for the planet.

Anthropologists have come across a remote tribe that came across a discarded computer and began worshipping it as a god - to the point of having DVD trays installed in the mouths.

A man is looking to set the world's record for fastest bicycle trip around the world. His plan rests on an ingenious device that will permit him to make the trip without stopping to use the restroom.

Police have released this graphic photo in an effort to help identify a hit and run unicyclist who struck a pedestrian yesterday.

In other crime related news, the DEA has made what it calls one of the biggest narcotics busts ever in taking down a huge pot farm on the outskirts of town.

And finally, a woman arrested for prostitution was released after police realized that it was a misunderstanding and that the woman was actually on her way to a costume party dressed as a "hookah."

Week in Pictures: Abbreviated Edition

Random Friday Thoughts:

Rain, rain, rain. That's pretty much the weekend forecast. Thank goodness for alcohol.

The transfer out of NY is looking more realistic by the day, so let's see how much longer I'm here.

It's been a crazy week at work, so the WiP is going to be very brief. So without further ado, let's jump right into it:

A sand sculputre artist has filed for damages against the city after what he says was an improper arrest for giving blow jobs on the beach.

In a related story, a local woman was arrested on beastiality charges for exchanging butterfly kisses.
