I was in a horse-drawn wagon earlier today with friends, and there was this very strange dude just staring at us.  Weird, to say the least.

KopiLuwaked: I watched a car in El Salvador hydroplane into a mountain side totally farking it up!

That is one tough car!! Very strange indeed!

My dog pooped a necklace again. He must have eaten a hair and when he did his morning business there were three turds evenly spaced along a hair just hanging there. He was slowly spinning in circles trying to reach it. I had to grab it with a leaf and pull it out. He got kind of pissed but I can't blame him- how weird would that feel?

I saw a really enormous cricket in my basement. It was the size of the last joint of my thumb, had stripey legs and was tame enough to pick up. I thought he was a cicada at first, but it turns out he is a cave cricket.

I took him out to my garage, which has a lot of leaves and stuff near the edges of the garage door for him to eat (Wikipedia says they like organic material,) and will be darker once I get these new basement lights installed. Also, the six-year-old named him Captain Hoppity Stripeylegs, because that is how six-year-olds think, and she is presently chalking stripes on her tights and composing an interpretive dance about the life of the cave cricket people and culture in general. (Her dance teacher went on an Isadora Duncan kick last winter and we couldn't make the kid wear a scarf for love or money, so this is progress.)

Really, two weird things I saw today.

My 14-year-old son running ...

I dragged him to the track with me so he could get some exercise because--like most teenagers--he's in danger of permanently mind-melding with his laptop.

The annoying part is that he's thin as a rail and actually runs like a gazelle when he tries, while I'm tramping along like a farking water buffalo ...

I haven't seen anything weird today because I haven't left the house. But yesterday morning on my way to bring the manfriend to work I saw a grown man wearing a ruffled leotard, a long beaded necklace, fishnets, and spats over high heels. He was attempting to twirl a baton. He did not look sober.

Went to a wedding today...someone on the groom's side apparently has a kid named Bailey and kept saying "Bailey Jay stop doing that" and such to the kid.  I presume Jay is the kid's middle name.  I didn't have the heart to tell her who the more famous Bailey Jay is.

Cheesehead_Dave: Not really strange, but kind of cool: The bubbler on my floor at work has been torn apart all week. It was finally back together today, but retrofit with a motion-activated spout for filling water bottles and a counter to show how many plastic bottles had been saved.

Good thing Fark greenlit the language maps article the other day. or I would have no idea WTF a bubbler was. Rock on with your crazy dialect, Wisconsin.

Nothing today, but...

Earlier this week, while driving to work, I saw a guy with an "Ice, Ice Baby" era Vanilla Ice haircut.  He was crouched behind a Ford Mustang, and he was dry-humping the bumper while smacking it with his right hand (ala "smacking that ass").

I'm pretty sure it wasn't his first time doing this.

BigLuca: A few years ago I went into the liquor store to by a bottle of absinthe.  As I was looking over my choices I heard a voice ask if I needed any help choosing, I look over and there is a midget with a green mohawk and a face tattoo.   He was very knowledgeable about the different brands and he did help, but I was a regular in that store and had never seen him before or since.  Now I wonder if I just imagined the whole thing.

With the power of fark, we can figure this out.  Was this when you were going to the liquor store to buy your second bottle of absinthe of the day?

There was a woman shopping at my Costco wearing a full football uniform. Pads, cleats, helmet in the cart, everything. She looked to be about mid-40's. I'm not sure what that was all about, not am I sure if I want to know.

henryhill: About a half hour ago, I saw two fat slobs, sisters I think, rolling around on the sidewalk (Queen St., Toronto) punching each other and spitting on each other, to the delight of the gathering crowd. One of them pissed herself too.

I really wanted to get the grass cut before it rained here. It was clouding up majorly and the wind was really blowing hard. I just finished mowing, when a huge gust of wind blew up my grass clippings into a small funnel cloud. It lasted no more than 5 or 6 seconds, but I saw the birth of a "grass tornado".

Pulled out of the drive to make a milk run and stopped to let an entire company of Hasidim pass in front of me on their way to Shule.

Damnedest thing is, had the same thing happen to me in Plano, Texas about the same time of year (June) 15 years ago, also while on a milk run.

Hope to be alive in another 15, in another state, just to see if it happens again.

I saw a peanut stand,
heard a rubber band,
I saw a needle that winked it's eye.
but I think I will have seen everything
when I see an elephant fly.

I saw a front porch swing,
heard a diamond ring,
I saw a polka-dot railroad tie.
but I think I will have seen everything
when i see an elephant fly.

I seen a clothes horse, he r'ar up and buck
and they tell me a man made a vegetable truck
I didn't see that, I only heard
but just to be sociable, I'll take your word.

I heard a fireside chat,
I saw a baseball bat
and I just laughed till I thought I'd die.
but I'd been done seen about everything
when I see an elephant fly.

skybird659: A white crow. Really! An albino crow that hangs with the other crows and crows back and forth and isn't a gull, dove or egret. Showed up 4 days ago, first time I heard it crow!
