Can we just refer to Alabama as The Ass Hole of the Union?
Nothing is original anymore. Not even pranks. The flip card prank that Yale pulled on Harvard last week was done a tad more than forty years ago.
In fact, only a handful of people watching the game understood the full significance of what had just happened, and these were the Caltech students who had labored for the past month to secretly alter Washington’s flip-card show.

Somebody needs to come up with an idiotic idea award and give it to whoever thought of this. If I have to wear earplugs while playing my revenge on my neighbor it seems like I am getting the raw deal once again.
Terrific essay. Here is a taste.
This is one of the most strangest stories I have read in a long time. An elephant handler is killed by Mary the Elephant , so..
But how were they to destroy a 7500 pound elephant? Shooting her in four soft spots on her head might have worked but was too risky with the crowd of curiosity seekers that the story attracted. She was too smart to eat food laced with cyanide. In 1903 an elephant had been electrocuted at Coney Island, but that was with the help of Thomas Edison. Kingsport or Erwin did not have enough electrical power for an electrocution. Clinchfield could use two engines to crush Mary, or the derrick could be used for hanging her.

These are great and horribly cheesy. Borderline Not Safe for Work due to the cover of Starship Intercourse.
Difficult to believe that a toy called “The Pocket Rocket” would be considered a worst toy.
We need more of these “Behind the Music” type sites.
But what many of us didn’t see behind that brave exterior was a monster cowering in the face of his own insecurities, a monster so unsure of himself he wouldn’t even watch his own performances, and a monster who ultimately allowed his own weaknesses to overcome him and nearly ruin his career. A genius, a tyrant, a womanizer or just a washed-up drunk? It’s time to expose Grover- the monster behind the myth.
