Instructional Video Of The Day: Five-Step Approach

From TheMovieGuru, who writes, "It's not just the accent, the bad toupée, and the fact that this guy is just a tool. He's teaching the five-step approach--but watch how many steps he takes."

Other than that, he's a natural on camera.



News Story Of The Day: Chimp Escape

"I hate every ape I see, from chimpan-A to chimpanzee" -- Troy McClure. And I'm with you, Troy. I hate monkeys, too. Well, with the possible exception of orangutans--they're somewhat amusing. "Right turn, Clyde!" WHAP!

CHIMPANZEE ESCAPES, SMASHES POLICE CAR WINDOW

(The Kansas City Star) A 300-pound chimpanzee escaped from its owner Tuesday afternoon and ran rampant through a Kansas City neighborhood, scaring walkers, pounding on passing cars and breaking a police car’s windshield.

The 21-year-old ape, named Sueko, also pointed and laughed at residents and flipped off an animal control officer near 78th Street and Indiana Avenue, witnesses said.

About 40 minutes and one tranquilizer dart later, Sueko meandered into a cage in her owner’s van. The owner drove her — with a police escort — to Monkey Island, a primate sanctuary in Greenwood where she will stay while the city’s legal department weighs its option.

City officials would like to avoid returning the chimp to her owner, Mark Archigo, who has been in and out of legal trouble over Sueko since 1995.

On Tuesday city officials cited him for having a dangerous animal in city limits. It was at least the third time that Archigo has been cited for problems with Sueko getting loose or biting people.

City officials, who briefly sent her to the zoo 15 years ago, even threatened then to euthanize her if Archigo brought her back into the city.

Archigo could not be reached for comment.

Photoshop of the Day: the Queen Mother

Although the Queen Mother died in 2002, the following photographs have just recently surfaced.* These surprising photos appear to reveal some glimpses into the secret life of the Queen Mother that no one would have suspected.

For example, who knew that the Queen Mother moonlighted at a pizza shop?


Or that she was a NASCAR driver?


Apparently, she also worked at a health spa in her spare time. Here she is giving a scalp massage to Cary. From the look on her face, she is enjoying it as much as he is.


With so many responsibilities, the Queen Mother needed to do something every once in a while to blow off steam. One way she liked to relax was to go hunting for songbirds.


Surprisingly, the Queen Mother was a big fan of baseball. She even caught a foul ball once at a game.


I have heard rumors that the Queen Mother was a prankster and that her favorite joke was to say, "Hey, pull my finger!" while posing for family portraits with the Royals. I didn't believe it until I saw this picture.


Although the Queen Mother was obviously a very busy woman, she knew how to kick back and have a little fun too. Here we see her listening to some folk music and watching two rednecks having a dance-off. First prize is that pig on the right.


Later, the party moved to the hot tub. In this photo the Queen Mother is enjoying the company of an unidentified man...hey, wait a minute...is that Frank?!
