The Strangest Thing You’ve Seen All Week

I tell ya, everyone claims to see a lot of strange things. Here’s my weekly pick.

Teddy Roosevelt. I was at a local RV, Sports, Boat and Travel show (that the company I work for happened to put on) and saw, well, Teddy Roosevelt walk by. It’s actually a fellow who gives lectures on how Roosevelt would see today’s environmental challenges, but it’s quite… surreal… to see Roosevelt walking by.

Can you top that?

Ooh ooh! I have a strange one. My friend who is a fellow VW owner brought me a bag of long curly hair that she had removed from her car tailpipe. We wondered if a creepy former neighbor might be stalking her and shoving wigs up the tailpipe, so I called a friend in service and found out it was actually her muffler coming apart.

Seeing feet and feet of hair that appeared to be the same color as my friend's, combined with twigs, was the strangest thing I saw all week. I just wish I could have seen the faces of people behind her in traffic!

It would have been even weirder if Franklin Delano Roosevelt had walked by you.

I saw a hockey game in person on Friday, where an NHL record of 419 Penalty Minutes. Even the GOALTENDERS fought.

Ok, so that may not count as strange, but it was definitely the coolest thing I saw all week.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
