Ah yes, it must be Saturday:
Animal rights activist beaten with duck in Spain
Madrid (AFP) - An animal rights activist was beaten with a duck by a Spanish woman defending one of the country's most bizarre and controversial festival traditions.
The man was whacked with the bird while he filmed the annual "duck chase" in the Catalonian seaside town of Roses, where every August ducks are thrown into the Mediterranean and then caught and brought back to the shore by swimmers.
Sort of like running with the bulls, but not. Maybe it's because it's early yet, but for the life of me I can't figure out a witty lyric from "Mf Fair Lady" that incorporates "ducks."
"The ducks in Spain stay mainly on the brain…"
You see my point. It's just not working. Or, "By George! He don't got it!"
Not to scale…LOL!
I note that a main battle tank with operational cannon is for sale:
We are selling our Cheiftain MK 6, main battle tank with 120mm gun.
This armored tank is fully functional. The 2 engines both run great and have low hours on them. It comes with a NEW backup main engine. The turret is fully operational and the stablization system works; it is controlled via a joystick. The main gun is registered as a Destructive Device with the ATF and comes with 10 projectiles. More projectiles are available. The barrel is in excellent condition and has never been molested. It has a factory laser range finder. Also included is the hydrolic mine plow and infrared spotlight. The intercom system works as does the NBC filtration.
Okay, let's be honest…if you're reading this blog you can close your eyes and imagine how cool that tank would look on your lawn. Of course, you can also imagine being divorced and forced use the tank as a very dangerous motor home. Imagine rolling up into the Egret Acres Motor Park and Landfill in your very own battle tank RV. You pull up to your spot, plug in the power, open the top hatch, pop up the satellite dish, set the hibachi on the turret, rotate the cannon toward the old Winnebago full of dudes playing Kid Rock at mind-numbing volumes and say, "You have 30 seconds to turn down the music!" It'd almost be worth the divorce! I envision my very own battle tank with a snowplow blade and a backhoe attachment, so not only could I plow a road, I could build a road! I think I would paint it blue, with a contrasting red digicam turret.
You will notice I am not at a 3-Gun match this AM as planned. I decided to give me knee one more week (and a shot of cortisone next week) before the big Noveske 2-day match. Besides, I have to assemble a pizza oven, which is proving more complicated than cold fusion.
