There is so much in this post! The chocolate beer spread sounds like it could actually be good. Those tattoos are pretty extreme, and, of course, permanent. That "hot" skyscraper's pretty unbelievable. Thank you for sharing all of this odd news!

Those tats... well, some are cool and some are well.. :)

I am glad that they took the guinea pig to the vet. Usually you hear about bad behavior from these institutions. However, I do get what they complained about.

I do not know where you find these gems. I have never heard of a building melting cars! Chocolate beer spread? Audio books for hens. So much to think about and it just goes to show- anything is possible!

Happy Monday!

lol Tracy, I don't know where to start. A audio book for hens? lol
I think the shoplifter with a moustache and fake nose takes the cake.
Happy Monday :)

Wow, an audiobook for hens! I'm not even sure why that's needed, but it's kind of awesome. I totally promote hen literacy. :)

Brian Joseph said...

Seriously, I wonder what temperature that parts of the cars under the glare of the building were reaching.

Kelly said...

They had the story about the building and the car warping here. It would have upset me, too!

I love my beer, but I think I'd rather drink it than spread it.

I'd be kinda torn about the chicken and the diamond. Too bad it didn't just pass it.

Interesting tattoos. I hate to tell her, but when she's older those flowers are going to wilt. ;)

Patti said...

I love your random news stories.

Karen said...

I like the brick wall skull tattoo. The artwork is beautiful on all of them - just not anything I would ever do or even enjoy looking at. But to each his own.

I would think the chicken would poop out the earring. Guess not lol

Hi Tracy,

That skyscraper story is just unbelieveable, isn't it?

The fact that the architects couldn't have worked out any of the potential problems at the planning stage is bad enough, but then to discover that the designer has already had similar problems in Vegas with a ridiculously shaped building, is inexcusable.

Apparently the Jaguar talked about in the article looked a complete mess and I heard a radio interview with the owner, who was understandably gutted.

They took readings out on the pavement in front of the building last Saturday afternoon and the temperature reached over 50 degrees!

What a complete hash this project is!
