But fish don’t have feet!

Court takes up ban on fish pedicures –

It’s been a while since I had a good fish post… Anyway, the fish are performing the pedicures, not getting them. The fish eat dead skin from people’s feet. The practice is banned by the Arizona Board of Cosmetology — a notorious band of nanny-state zealots — apparently because it’s gross, or as they say “unhealthy”. I could see how it would be bad for the fish

Yeah, that’s weird

“You know something Whoopi? It would be a blast if Michael asked me to dance”: The Michael Jackson video that time forgot | Music | A.V. Club

I was watching one of the Michael Jackson marathons last weekend, and this video popped up. It disturbed me, because I had no recollection of it, and my recall of mid-to-late eighties music videos is awfully detailed at times. (I have many talents.) So, I guess the reason is that it was never released as a single in the US. Seems a lot of effort to go through just for foreigners.

In this case, I have to believe the Kremlin

AFP: Mamma Mia! Putin denies mystery ABBA concert

A former American President — I forget his name — said that he looked into Putin’s soul. And if there’s one thing I know about ABBA, it’s that they never had any soul.

Jewish? Moving to Dothan, Ala., can net you $50,000 |

I wouldn’t exactly call Dothan a “small town” — the city population is about 65,000 — but in common with much of the South outside the major cities, its Jewish population has declined over the years. (There used to be a lot of Jews all over the South, especially in Mississippi, but they’re now pretty much confined to Atlanta, Birmingham, etc.) So, the remnant population is offering bonuses to Jews to move to Dothan and stay there.

It’s actually a pretty nice place, close to the beach (I would go to the beach a lot more if it didn’t take so long) and has an impeccably Biblical name.

“Sorry, honey. I’d let you ride in front, but the dog gets jealous.”

It’s not a great picture, so you may not be able to tell, but that is, indeed, an actual human being — a woman of, as they say, a certain age — standing up in the back of a moving pickup truck. This is the sort of thing you see occasionally, if the world has gone insane.
