Weekly Review for 6/2/06

  • More than 1,700 Britons left a cruise ship early after many passengers were stuck in their cabin with a stomach virus. A lot of people can relate to that. Anybody that saw Mission Impossible III knows how a cruise can make you vomit.

  • In Denton County, Texas, a construction worker was injured when the portable toilet he occupied was struck by a tractor trailer with a wide, um, load. If the man decides to press charges it will be convenient since the mishap occurred in the County Seat.

  • A woman in India recently married a king cobra snake. The bride works from the home, and the groom is a congressman.

  • A Las Cruces radio station is playing an all Barry Manilow format. All Barry—all day, all night. The station general manager, Phil Kinzer, describes himself as a “fanalow.” It could be worse. At least he’s not an emin-enema.

  • Senior citizens in Prosser, Washington, are being overwhelmed in their condo village by marmots, a close relative of the ground squirrel. It’s believed the rodents migrated from Las Cruces.
