Over Roaches? Well, not just roaches, but the RoboRoach product, a “backpack” kit from Backyard Brains. You place your order, it comes in the mail and then you perform a brief “surgery” on your cockroach. Attach the tiny backpack to the roach and you can then control its movement from your smartphone phone app until cockroach “adapts.” Simply return the cockroach to its cage for 20 minutes, he “forgets” and the stimulation and it all works again.
“We’re not breaking any laws,” said Greg Gage, the co-founder Backyard Brains. “These are roaches that people would easily kill in their apartments.”
PETA calls it a felony; practicing veterinary medicine without a license. I’m waiting for a “people” version to come out; I’m going to have me some fun.

That’s all I got on that; just needed something to fill some space.
The Nazis are Coming; the Nazis are Coming!
On Saturday – that’s tomorrow – the National Socialists Movement will be protesting at the Jackson County Courthouse and, of course, your well-coiffed Scribe will be there to take pictures and report in. I reached out to Westboro Baptist this morning to see if they would be present. I’m not sure what their angle would be, but, hey, I thought it was worth the question. Nazis are gay, Germans invented gayness, we fought Germany and they should have won, I figured there would be something, but apparently I was wrong.
I received a very curt, “No!” and was hung up on.
KC Crime Fighter Alonzo Washington tweeted, “To rally against the Nazis and not change our tolerance for black murders in KCMO is an empty gesture.” I don’t know how the two are connected, but as I’ve told you before, Alonzo, our tolerance hasn’t gone anywhere, with or without the Nazis. This is largely a black on black crime issue. For once, I’d like to see you put that factoid in the community’s lap where it belongs. They are the only ones who can fix the murder rate. Not the Nazis, not the KCMO police and certainly not “our” tolerance or lack thereof. We all know what the problem is; FIX IT.
Pope Francis, paused this week to pray and lay his hands on a man covered in facial tumors as the man buried his head in the Pope’s chest. The encounter occurred Wednesday at the end of the general audience, which had about 50,000 attendees. This guy’s the real deal and I’m not a Catholic. He maintains a humble apartment, recently took an ’84 Renault to get around the grounds and lives out the message on a daily basis. Kudos, Francis, keep on Pope’n.
Obligatory Obama Opology
President Obama apologized to those Americans whose insurance plans are being canceled even though he said repeatedly they could keep their coverage if they liked.
“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me.”
On the same day, Delaware announced their initial sign up results for ObamaCare; FOUR total residents. Four. Yeah, I know it’s a small state; Rhode Island could kick its ass, but four people?
Hall of Famer George Brett says he regrets using inappropriate language with an autograph hound, but he said he was tired of dealing with the man that he considers a stalker. “I apologize for using foul language in a public place to a guy that’s been stalking me for a long time,” Brett said on Thursday.
Brandon Farrens said he was waiting for Brett to arrive at Kansas City International Airport on Wednesday to get what would be his 15th autograph out of 35 attempts.
Why? He sells them!
For my money, Brett’s first and only mistake was signing anything for this dip wad, but he did, and in a profanity-laced tirade, indicated that it would be the last one that he would ever give him, stating, “If I ever see you (expletive) again, I’m going to shoot your (expletive) ass, do you understand?”
So Brandon “Douche Bag” Farrens, with his smart phone video in its full, upright position, gets the autograph but calls Brett an “asshole” as he walks away. Brett then appears to walk back towards Farrens and the video abruptly ends. Regrettably, Brett didn’t have a pine tar bat and just beat the living daylights out of him!
That’s it for this week, have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday, if the Nazis or inner city crime doesn’t get me first.
