Fantastic Beasts of the TSA

Fantastic Beasts of the TSA

This skit on The Late Late Show with James Corden, “‘Fantastic Beasts’ of the TSA w/ Eddie Redmayne” is a brilliant way to promote the now-released movie. It is the story of Newt Scamander, his character in the new Harry Potter film, dealing with TSA airport security.

Kudos to The Verge for the original find.

We have all seen stupid warning signs and labels before. This post is going narrow the dumb factor specifically to labels and signs that prevent Darwinism. That said a formal definition is in order but before that a few disclaimers.

First off, if you are easily offended by sarcasm, you may wish to stop reading now. Secondly, links will be provided to actual signs when possible, however, these links may cease to function shortly after the post date. These type of images on the web have a tendency to vanish. Finally, please keep in mind that this a satirical, humorous post… not to be taken too seriously. I do not actually endorse removing stupid people from the gene pool.

Definition of Darwinism

1: a theory of the origin and perpetuation of new species of animals and plants that offspring of a given organism vary, that natural selection favors the survival of some of these variations over others, that new species have arisen and may continue to arise by these processes, and that widely divergent groups of plants and animals have arisen from the same ancestors.
2: a theory that inherent dynamic forces allow only the fittest persons or organizations to prosper in a competitive environment or situation.

In layman’s terms, it is often termed “survival of the fittest”. In the context of this post, definition 2 is more relevant. Mainly the focus is that our society is so protective that we let too many survive. This post is themed “stupid people shouldn’t breed” or “death to the dumbest”.

More Legal Advice from Hutson & Harris

A few days ago, I got on my soapbox about the edible laws in Texas. Actually, I let a few musically talented attorneys do most of the talking. I thought I would share some more of their wisdom today… trust me, just shut up and listen.

Shut Up

Thanks for listeing. If you enjoyed the video, you may wish to subscribe to the singing lawyers on YouTube.

We all do dumb things. The two individuals I am about to mention, take it to an entirely new level. Arsenio Hall coined the phrase “things that make you go hmmmm”. I actually have that phrase as a category here. Check out these morons in the news.

Two Crazy Ways to Kill Insects

A Few Interesting Ways to Kill Insects

Being a former beekeeper I am not too afraid of bee. However, as a former land lord, I had to deal way to often with yellow jackets, hornets and wasps. They can be a pain to get rid of…

The folks over at Boing! Boing! often share interesting and unusual video. Check out the two below.

Amazing Mail Deliveries

Amazing Deliveries

Putting Special Emphasis on the Word “Service” for Postal Service

While listening to an episode of  WaitWait… Don’t Tell Me!, I heard an interesting story about a letter delivery. When dug deeper on the web, I found several similar occurrences. Read on for three amazing deliveries.  I wish the USPS were as dedicated as some the postmasters mentioned below.

Scott, from Scotland

Kudos to the NZ Post for successfully delivering a letter addressed as follows:

Scott, from Scotland … aged about 60/70?? … corner of Tiniroto Road (almost). By a bridge. Has a Japanese wife — who may be older but looks about 20 … also has a daughter, about 3. Loves history … Good sense of humour … tells a good tale … Rural delivery area, sort of south east of Gisborne.

Sound more like a clue in an adventure game than an address. Continue reading “Amazing Mail Deliveries”

Stoned Driver and Passenger Turn Themselves In

They say pot can make one paranoid. The audio below is certainly an example of that. Listen to these stoned drives, convinced they are being followed, turn themselves in… along with 20 pounds of marijuana.

It seems that the stoned criminals thought they were being followed and decided to call 911 to put an end to the cat and mouse game.  I can’t tell from the recording if they were actually being followed but found some humor in their above and beyond cooperation with the dispatcher.
