renaissance in a can

I'm writing a feature-length film script. It's a time-travel musical involving superintelligent stuffed animals. We're going to shoot it in October and it will rule. Also, I've been hard at work on the aforementioned new web project: more details soon.

Anyway, with all of this on my plate, plus teaching a class, I'm lucky to have alert readers to do my job for me. Felisa, who can always be relied upon for bizarre animal stories, sends in the cow that fell through a roof in Turkey.

Sahin's wife, Rahime, was equally incredulous. "They told me that a cow fell on top of my husband," she said. "I thought they were kidding me. May God protect us from a worse accident."

And Peyton would like to remind us that it is now illegal to wear aluminum underwear in Colorado.

"This is serious business," insists State Sen. StephanieTakis, who sponsored the bill. "We have laws against using crowbars astheft devices, but if you were lining your underwear with aluminumfoil, that was not a crime." It is now. Apparently, shoplifters foundsuch so-called "iron pants" allow them to sneak stolen items past anti-theft scanners at store doors. The law also allows store securityofficers to detain people who "crackle when they walk," but provides anexception for aluminum britches worn for "personal amusement".(Colorado Springs Gazette)

This may foul up some Workshop travel plans, since American Airlines tends to fly people out of here through Denver. Make sure to look amused, folks.
