Other People’s Stories

Some of these are really cool.

Every story on OPS is a story a contributor heard from someone else. These stories have been overheard and misheard, told and re-told and sometimes refined over time. They do not shy from hearsay, gossip, myth or guys we knew in high school. OPS is dedicated to the time-honored tradition of stealing other people’s material and we therefore recognize our debt to those from whom we’ve stolen and acknowledge that these stories do not belong to us.

Tongue Twisters

Here is a site full of tongue twisters such as

The thirty-three thieves thought that they thrilled the throne throughout Thursday.

The best part is they have tongue twisters in different languages. Check out this one from Rwanda.

Ibibiribiri bibiri biri mu murima wa Mubirigi. Hari umugabo wo kwica ibibiribiri bibibri!

Cleaner throws away trash art


This cracked me up:

LONDON (Reuters) – A cleaner at London’s Tate Britain modern art gallery threw out a bag of garbage which formed part of an artwork because it was thought to be trash, British newspapers reported Friday.

Criticism accepted! Oh this was my favorite part.

The newspapers said the spokesman would not reveal how much the bag had cost to replace.

Yep, I can see how a bag full of garbage would be hard to find.
