in the news today
A 17-year-old from Connecticut attempted to sell drugs to a pair of police officers wearing jackets clearly marked 'Police'. The officers were on patrol in an unmarked car when Davaughn Goethe waved them down, jumped into the back of the car, and asked them what they wanted and how much. Goethe even remarked to the occupants, "You guys look like cops." Upon realizing that the two men were, in fact, cops, Goethe apparently swallowed his merchandise, which has yet to be recovered. He is due to appear in court on March 23.

Talk about mind-altering substances...

What is a biro?

answer to Thursday's question
Okay, I was talking about the Japanese poetry form: 31 syllables, structured in 5 unrhymed lines of 7 syllables each, except for the first and third lines, which are only 5 syllables. However, Drew and Jay tell us that a tanka is also a Tibetan religious painting on fabric, a member of a people living on small boats in the coastal areas of China, a kind of 25-foot long boat often rowed by women in Canton, and an Estonian grunge band. Honestly, aside from the painting, I have no idea what these people are talking about.

'Tanks' and congratulations to: Dean, Drew, Ariel, Alex, and Jay. And the Smartypants go to Jason and Vin. (These ones really made me laugh this time!)

Nikki Alfar is really not as sexy as El's illustration would have you believe... but she doesn't mind if you think of her that way.
