Strange Claims, and Some Are True

It’s hard to be more publicly exposed than the Sasquatch hunters who held a press conference last week and said “that the carcass encased in a block of ice — handed over to them for an undisclosed sum by two men who claimed to have found it — was slowly thawed out, and discovered to be a rubber gorilla outfit”; the Guardian reports: “Porn claims outrage German Kafka scholars”; John McCain claims he doesn’t know how many houses he owns; Salon asks, “Does air conditioning make people vote Republican?”; presidents of some of the nations most prestigious colleges have banded together to lower the drinking age, claiming it will curb binging; and it’s no exaggeration that the fastest person on the planet has been found. Wait, Kafka and Sasquatch?
