Malawi politician victim of vampire rumors.


You know, I just spent 20 minutes trying to dream up a better introduction to the article than just hyperlinking the title, but I'm simply not eloquent enough. In all honesty, I think that Rousseau and Hume would have just given up on the whole Enlightenment and committed suicide if they had know that 200 years later, in a thriving multi-party democracy, politicians would be stoned for colluding with vampires. Then again, I suppose that those of us dwelling in North America really shouldn't laugh at the idea of politicians colluding with vampires when we have vampires threatening to protest and possibly sue White Castle for garlic based discrimination.

Since the white castle vampire lives in Ohio, I suppose I should buy my parents some silver bullets for Christmas?

  • I thought they were supposed to work on Vampires too, at least in the Blade movies. Then again, I suppose that in the Underworld/Underworld Revolution movies, they only work on werewolves.

  • It's the United Democratic Front, so of course they're real vampires. The Ohio guys is just a publicity-vampire and those can be killed with a negative rolled-up news report, worse than a stake to the heart.

  • A great way to dispose of a vampire is to cut out its heart (during the day obviously) quarter the heart and bury the quarters to the Nort, South, East and West.

  • Haha, Underworld...nerd...and possibly worse, goth.

  • So what can we use on NPR? I'm thinking the only thing is an Israeli airstrike on their broadcast antennas, dropping thousands of Sliders beforehand to soften them up.

    PS--Thanks loads for the oil change info--who makes the best filter has been the topic of debate in our family for generations, and you've finally settled it and brought peace to our warring family.

    PPS--Love your blog and especially the weird stories. Just goes to show ya that there is no generation gap amongst Chargers (I'm '99). Good luck in your studies!

  • Kappy:
    Thanks for the comment.I'm pretty sure that 99 is close enough, based on the TV theory of generations (i.e. you watched the same TV shows growing up) that it wouldn't be a generation gap anyway.

    I have a picture of a Wright Wasp as the backround on my cell phone, and a big P&W con rod for a paperwieght.

  • Wow! You got the goods! I can't figure out how to turn on my cellphone, and my '96 Saturn is now useable only as a paperweight. Are you SURE there's no generation gap? Still, I understand what you mean about the TV link--Dr. Stewart and I bonded immediately when we both realized that we were the only people in American Heritage 105 who remembered the Superfriends Saturday morning cartoon show.

    Keep plowing through those briefs!

  • PS--How did you score the con rod? Sounds as though it has an interesting story behind it...
