It's Raining Coconuts Out There!

A  myth spread by coconut haters.

And one would think a famous cook would fight to end the horrible stigma of succulent nuts born amongst the fronds of tropical palms, full of juice and life giving nourishment.  But sometimes, you just feel like a nutter.  I guess this is why I've never once seen one growing, could it be, they are banned?

In this link, a pit bull mauls a coconut to death.  A terrible waste.

Here is a poetic salute to all of the things that kill us.  Remember, according to pit bull enthusiasts, you are far more likely to be konked on the head by a murderous coconut, than be killed by a pit bull.  In this link, they muse about the ways people meet their untimely demise, it makes them feel better.   This myth has been debunked long ago.  As for me,  I'll take a piece of coconut cream pie.  Thank you.

Heroic Pit Bull Travels 2000 Miles to Attack Owner

                                          This is available as a magnet for the fridge!

This is a transcript from SATIRE Radio News 
from The Onion. 

It's the Onion Radio news!  A heroic pit bull journeys 2,000 miles to attack its owner.  This is Doyle Redland, reporting.

A determined three-year-old pit bull escaped from a kennel in Quincy, Illinois and miraculously found its way across the great plains and through the Rocky Mountains to its master's new home in Pasadena, California, where it savagely mauled owner Jerry Lathrup.   Lathrup's wife, Helen, was overwhelmed.

   She explained,   "There was this scratching sound at the front door, and when I opened it, there was Sarge!  He bolted across the room and sprung, right at Jerry's face!" 

The last similar incident occurred back in 1885, when a mule followed its owner from California all the way to the gold fields of Alaska, in order to kick him to death.

THIS is not Satire news, it's a true story.  It may be stranger news than the one from The Onion, and stranger still, there is effort to save this dog's life after mauling a person to death.  There are people lined up to adopt it.   Life is stranger than fiction, even satire, these days.

It's the Owners

It's the owners, once more for groaners. 

If pit bulls only attack because of negligent ownership, it should be reason enough to regulate them.
