Even larger Oreo cookie discovered in Africa

Dwarfing the manhole-sized Oreo, which hitherto was believed to be the largest Oreo cookie in existence, scientists announced today the discovery of a chocolate saucer of unheard of proportions in the small village of Photoshop, Kenya. The photo shows the Oreo dwarfing a full-grown African bull elephant.

The enormous confection is in the process of being transported by container ship to Yorkshire, where it will be incorporated into an "Incredulity Monument" at Leeds, having been purchased by the Council of that city at the urging of one of its more scientific thinkers.

Turning to sports news, the annual Scotland-to-Cornwall bicycle race was halted and disrupted about halfway through the race by an irate man screaming, "There's no such thing as a cycle-ist!"

Hell Drivers


Do you remember hot summer nights at the country fair?
Do you remember Joie Chitwood and his Hell Drivers?
Do you remember the Wall of Death on the midway?
Do you remember how pissed carnies used to get when you tried to take their picture?

Anger management


Captain Ahab had a bit of an obsession with the white whale named Moby Dick:

"I'll chase him round Good Hope, and round the Horn, and round the Norway Maelstrom, and round perdition's flames before I give him up."

And, finally:

"To the last I grapple with thee; from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee."

(Ishmael) And he piled upon the whale's white hump a sum of all the rage and hate felt by his own race. If his chest had been a canon, he would have shot his heart upon it.

Fargo

One of my favorite movies of all time is the now cult classic "Fargo." I just remembered that Paul Bunyan appears briefly in the final scene. Remember? Watch that scene here.
