“Abraham: Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?
Sampson: I do bite my thumb, sir.
Abraham: Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?
Sampson (to Gregory): Is the law of our side if I say ay?
Sampson: No, sir, I do not bite my thumb at you sir; but I bite my thumb, sir.” – Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare
Two Superpowers and a Thumb
Last year in late December, a 24-year-old man attending an “ugly sweater” party at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia obtained access to an ancient world wonder… by wandering through a door.
What did he do with this opportunity you ask? Take a selfie and steal a thumb.
Delaware resident, Michael Rohana, slipped through an unlocked door into a room containing statues of ancient warriors from the renowned Chinese Terracotta Army. He took a selfie with a 2,000-year-old warrior and then decided to break the thumb off of the statue as a souvenir… great job Mike.
Unfortunately for my man Michael, he hasn’t only been charged with a flurry of crimes (each statue is worth millions after all) in the United States, he has China on the warpath for disrespecting the honor – and appendages – of its warriors.
If you’re ever talking to someone and desperately need an example of the most pathetic person possible look no further than the sorry excuse for a cop, let alone person, Scot Peterson.
The disgraced Broward sheriff’s deputy, who hid in a stairwell during the Parkland school shooting, refused to appear Thursday before the state commission investigating the massacre.
Max Schachter, whose son Alex was killed in the attack and who also happens to hold a seat on the spurned commission didn’t mince words:
“He’s a piece of garbage. He could have gone in and saved six children’s lives and he chose to do nothing. After all those other officers went into the line of fire with the chance of them being killed, he stood behind a concrete pillar for 45 minutes and did nothing. He’s a despicable human being.”
He’s right you know… just ask Florida mainstay the SunSentinel
Tony Hawk’s new Comedy Career
While tons of people have professed fanhood to the legendary skateboarder be it from being a fan of the sport or just from controlling a poorly rendered version of him on various consoles, apparently people don’t recognize Tony Hawk…
Luckily he has a sense of humor about it and has honestly had some pretty funny goes at some Twitter comedy.
