Headline of the day: Teacher OK after crashing into bear on a bicycle

How the bear got onto the bicycle, I’ll never know.

cf: Marx, Groucho: “I once shot an elephant in my pajamas.”

I am chagrined to see that this is my first ever Groucho reference here at Collateral Damage. I apologize to my readers and promise to do better in the future.

PS:  Walt Kelly’s birthday was last month and I forgot to mention it. Again, my apologies. Why is it this book title never goes out of date?

Headline of the day: Elephant kicks heroin habit

BEIJING (AFP) – An elephant has kicked his heroin habit after a three-year stint on an island rehab in southern China, an official and state media said Thursday.

Yeah, but you wouldn’t believe the amount of methadone he’s on.
