Frell. I have to work today. I mean, really work. Wish me luck!

Here is something to ponder. I already asked this favor of my resident history expert, Henry. I need some really good 'mysteries of history.' Whats your favorite? Or, did you hear one that stuck in your head?
A good example would be: Jack the Ripper. Notorious and unsolved.
Thanks.

I'd like to know how George Dubya got reelected. Historians will puzzle over that one for years.

Hmmm… how about what really happened to Hitler? They never found his body and there are various accounts for how he died. Or has he died???

hmmm. I'd like to know how people survived back in the stone ages with out baths.... Ok really I'd like to know how some "cave men" survived the ice age when something as big and mighty as the mamouth went extinct.

Marilyn Monroe - suicide or murder?
Jimmy Hoffa - wearing cement shoes or living in NE?
Kenny Rogers - dead walking the earth or formaldehyde in an IV drip?

Someone, and I'm not saying who, but someone is causing trouble over at FMD. So I guess my question is, why are some people giant, drippy assholes and why can't they all be repeatedly run over by buses?

How about the mystery of Joe's supposed funeral. Did he really have a funeral to attend?

I'm only half the trouble at FMD. So I'll take the busses and let the other guy have the drippy asshole.

Jimmy Hoffa was stripped, washed and fed into the hamburger grinder at the Des Moines meat packing plant. He was later consumed at an annual Ford employee picnic and potato sack tourney. "Best burger I've ever tasted, Bob," was frequently heard admist the three-legged racing and general haberdaschery.

stellar, you are the kind of trouble we like! (And yes, I am using the Royal 'we'.) :D

trinamick said...

Stellar, the only way we're letting you get run over by a bus is if I'm driving! :P As for another one, I'd be willing to back up a couple of times.

Then he would finally have something to post on his 'Pedestrian Crossing' thread...

Wow - you're right, he has an empty blog. I've got one of those too!

As for history mystery, i can't come up with anything, brain's not workin. How about what if Jesus and Mary Magdalene had gotten married, had a baby who continued JC's bloodline, and the church tried to conceal the evidence and destroy the bloodline, and Harrison Ford found out about it and got into a whole bunch of trouble, and.......
