One of my few joys since moving out to the desert has been tumbleweed hunting with the minivan.  On windy days, the things will roll across the roads and, if you time it right, you can strike them head on with the car.  They are light and dry, and when struck they *shatter*.

It is more satisfying then it should be.  I should probably see a therapist.

Nicholas D. Wolfwood: You know, this would have made a *great* episode of The Twilight Zone.  I can hear Rod's voice now...


"This man is about to discover that nature holds some secrets...and some grudges. A will that cannot be fathomed by humanity. He will come to this knowledge as he tumbles into...the Twilight Zone."

I used to do that too, until I broke a fog lamp off of my Jeep. Damn weed had a stalk about 2" in diameter.

CSB:

Years ago I was at a friend's house on July 4th, and he decided to play with some commercial-sized fireworks. The first mortar he lit misfired, went about 50 feet in the air, and landed in a pile of tumbleweeds that were stacked against the neighbor's house. Then it exploded, catching the weeds on fire. We scrambled with the neighbor's garden hose and put the fire out before it caught the house on fire, but it did blacken the wall and eaves a bit. The neighbors weren't home at the time. Always wondered what they thought when they got home and found A) the weeds were gone, and B) the smoke damage to their house.

You know, the same thing happened to me last time I tried to tell a joke.

FloydA: He's just pushing them into a ditch?

He does realize that west Texas might some day get windy again, right?  It's theoretically possible.


It's the same strategy that works for Rick Perry and the state legislature.

Those are clearly not tumbleweeds. They are wind-brahmin.

I grew up in West Texas, and this does not surprise me.

But the tags for this article include Bob Woodward? Really? Unless the mods think Woodward has been acting dumb as a West Texas tumbleweed this week, I guess.

*scratches head*
