The Writer's Life 4/15 - Monkeying Around

A chimp that escaped from a Japanese zoo led handlers on a two-hour chase. Here is fascinating footage of its capture:

What if a socialist and someone who pretends she isn't a socialist have a debate? Add punchline here ______.

The Blacklist is a fast-paced hour of violent nonsense. Last night NBC alerted the audience that a "bombshell" was coming. I was surprised by who was eliminated, although I wouldn't be surprised if it were some sort of ruse. Anyway. Song accompaniment has become a staple in TV shows. For the most part I hate it, and the playlist the creators of The Blacklist come up with is often bizarre, intentionally so, I assume. Last night, after wild shootouts and car crashes, Having My Baby, performed by Odia Coates, not the song's writer, Paul Anka, was cued as the female lead was delivering, not in a hospital but in a warehouse unknown to those who wished to abduct her . I suppose there are those who enjoyed it. I thought it was as lame as could be.

Here's a list from Replace any or all with the name or names of politicians:
Icelanders consume more Coca-Cola per capita than any other nation.
Dueling is legal in Paraguay as long as both parties are registered blood donors.
Most toilets flush in E flat.
2,000 pounds of space dust and other debris fall on the Earth every day.
Approximately 40,000 Americans are injured by toilets each year.
Each month there is at least one report of UFOs from each province of Canada.
You can be fined up to $1,000 for whistling on Sunday in Salt Lake City.
It takes about 142.18 licks to reach the center of a Tootsie pop.
The serial number of the first MAC ever produced was 2001.

My thanks to the four kind folks who bought books today.
