Yes, Words Can Hurt is now known as Strange Week, as a result of our new Saturday format. Just deal with it.
And with that important announcement out of the way, the key lines from this past week:
I’ve been to parad-Iceland, but… “Before reentering the bus after the stop at EldgjÃ¡, the woman had changed her clothes and freshened up, resulting in the other passengers not recognizing herâ€¦ She didnâ€™t recognize the description of herself and ‘had no idea that she was missing,” – a police chief in Iceland, explaining how a woman managed to take part in a search and rescue operation that was looking for her.

This is what happens when people don’t listen to enough of the Velvet Underground: “I tried to make a hole in the cardboard but it was too thick and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise by shouting.” – Hu Seng, who tried sending himself to his girlfriend in a cardboard box but nearly suffocated when the couriers got lost en route. Still, he did better than Waldo Jeffers did.Â [Daily Mail]
Yes, it may have been: “Alcohol may have been a factor.” – Montana State Trooper Jim Schneider, on why a man stood by the side of a highway in a Sasquatch costume hoping to trick people into reporting Sasquatch sightings. Sadly, the man was hit not once but twice by passing cars and died.Â [Geekologie]
