"Heck. They grow them at the side of the road....they must be expecting to lose a few"
Seconds later, the criminals were vaporised.
Bonus "During their jolly to Washington for Trump’s inauguration, Nigel Farage and Brexit financier Arron Banks staged the most solemn of pilgrimages to Arlington National Cemetery to lay a wreath at the grave of a British soldier who perished in 1944. The fact that he succumbed to anaemia whilst working a desk job approximately 4,000 miles from Normandy – perhaps the only person in Arlington not to have actually died for their country – was somewhat de-emphasised."

Another Tedious Tuesday slide. I'm trying to think of some cockamamie fact to make this slide even slightly interesting.
Bonus - "Cockamamie" - By the look and sound of it, cockamamy (also spelled "cockamamie") seems like an arbitrarily coined nonsense word-but a reasonable explanation for its origin exists. Supposedly, cockamamy is an altered form of the term decalcomania, which denotes a process of transferring pictures and designs from specially prepared paper to surfaces such as glass or porcelain. The word decalcomania comes from the combination of French décalquer, meaning "to copy by tracing," and -manie, meaning "mania." In the 1940s, painted strips of paper with images capable of being transferred to the skin were called "decals" or "cockamanies." They were naturally regarded by many as silly novelties. Hence, in time, the variant cockamamie came to be used as an adjective meaning "ridiculous."
Bonus 2 - Heavy Snow.

Based upon their own interpretation of Paul's Fourth Latter to The Galetions, Bob and Shirley Cummings and neighbours Ted and Augustine Marshall of Toledo Ohio believed that The Second Coming would occur in June, at this small outcrop in Ohio.

However, I suspect this is a photo from Peru, where the extreme altitudes can lead to health problems - especially for non-locals. This looks like a low-tech oxygen enrichment treatment.
