* In case you missed it: Washington Post reports killer story on drunk man who finds bed in wrong home. The story just keeps getting better. The lede is solid:
There’s drunken confusion, and then there’s the place that a 50-year-old Montgomery County man found himself—-in the wrong bed in the wrong house.
The late night snack graf is darling:
Bob Breiner walked upstairs to the master bedroom and flipped on a lamp. Less than two feet away: a man he’d never seen, wrapped in blankets, sound asleep. On the floor were shoes, socks and pants. Earlier, the man had apparently helped himself to a crab cake from the refrigerator.
But this quote makes the story:
One of the officers asked him whether—-upon entering the house and seeing a white Persian cat—-he realized he was at the wrong place. “I thought maybe my wife had gone out and gotten another cat,” he told the officer, the Breiners said.
* New PSA tries to get kids not to use “gay” as a derogatory term. “Will a public service announcement help make accepting homosexuality more OK among kids?” asks Jessica of Tango Mag. “Or is that idea. . . totally gay?”
* Gawker posts a scan of what is claimed to be Sarah Palin‘s report card from her senior year at Wasilla High (above). The grade sheet hasn’t been confirmed to be “real,” but doesn’t the reported 841 out of 1600 SAT score jibe with your own stereotypical assumptions of Sarah Palin’s horrifically deficient intelligence? And isn’t that the true test of “reality”?
* Nepalese living goddesses grow up so fast! The Associated Press gives the profile treatment to the three-year-old girl who “will be worshipped by Hindus and Buddhists as an incarnation of the powerful Hindu deity Taleju” . . . for now. The girl will live as a goddess in Katmandu “until she reaches puberty and loses her divine status.”
