Crazy News Stories of the Week

Herpes-infected monkeys on the loose in Florida

In the 1930′s, a Florida tour guide was inspired by “Tarzan” to bring a rare species of wild monkeys to the state, NY Post‘s Natalie O’Neil reports. Originally, they were small in number and contained on a island, but in recent decades, they’ve learned to swim, and have been spotted many miles away on the mainland. And the worst part? Of the more than 700 monkeys caught in the past decade, most of them have tested positive for the Herpes-B virus. The monkeys are now considered a health hazard to the state.

Alaskan mayor mauled by mad dog, is also a cat:  Yesterday in The Daily Caller, reporter Robby Soave broke the news of an appalling mad dog attack on a city official in the town of Talkeetna, Alaska.  Yes, the city official happened to be a cat, but that cat is the town’s mayor and has been for the past 16 years. Was the attack an accident? Probably, but could it have been the reactive protests of an oppressed canine underground against a fierce cat-tatorship, the first move made by Talkeetnaan dogs in lieu of an impending political coup? Absolutely not, but what a helluva story that would be, am I right?

Why you should read this article: Not only should you read this article, but you should donate to the cat mayor’s rehabilitation and physical therapy. If he doesn’t run again in November, then we’re hearing that the Green Party ferret will run unopposed and raise the town’s taxes on tuna and scratching posts.

Chris Matthews to Obama: “Oh no, girl you didn’t.”: In TWT this week, news writer Jessica Chasmar wrote a story on Chris Matthews appearance on “Morning Joe” Wednesday, where he blasted President Obama for making Democrat party leaders choose between supporting the President’s potential war with Syria, or breaking from party loyalty and acting on their own code of ethics. Matthews compares this to Democrat loyalty that followed Lyndon Johnson into the Vietnam War. They would eventually turn their backs on newly elected Republican Richard Nixon regarding that same conflict.

Why you should read this article: Democrats have feelings, and Matthews stands up for those little guys who want to have their cake and eat it, too. Is it too much to ask that these conflicted party members just be allowed to believe in what the party does while they remain loyal to their leader without following his lead?
